On one hand I love the everything's a $1 store and on the other I hate it more than anything.
I love that I can buy cleaning supplies, balloons, greeting cards and more for a mere $1.
However, I find the $1 store beyond depresssing. The nasty smell of off-brand ramen noodles mixed with cheap scented candles, or the sight of generic tampons on a shelf next to bags of Werther's Originals. Perhaps it's the employees. I've often seen happier people in mug shots.
Or the whining kids begging for a cheap toy that will last them about 20 minutes once they exit the store.
Is the sadness worth the fact that I can get a giant gift bag for $1 and it's $3.79 at Walmart??
