  • I really just like buying greeting cards there, like for kids birthdays and things like that. The cards are 2 for $1, and while some of them are a little cheesy, there are some really cute ones too. Beats paying $3 per card elsewhere. Kids won't know whether it's a Hallmark or not, lol.

  • I shop at the Dollar Tree, it's my favorite. You can get really cute mylar balloons inflated with helium for $1 instead of $4 like in any other store, and the gift wrap, gift bags, dish rags and dish towels, hair ties, storage baskets, coloring books, puzzle books, party favors, party decorations. All for $1. Can't beat it lol.

  • I do a LOT of crafts with my toddlers but seeing as though they are 2 and 3 i dont see the point in buying expensive crayons or construction paper that will just be torn up. i buy wrapping paper there and sometimes other part supplies.

  • I do! Greeting cards, gift bags, bows, zip-lock food containers, kids books, holiday items for kids baskets and such, and a lot more. I don't go there a lot, but always get some good stuff when I go.

  • No. Cheap goods like those found in dollar stores are part of the reason jobs are leaving the US.
