Oh yes, I get a variety of things.  I have a nice Betty Crocker colander that I got a Dollar Tree.  Also at dollar tree, I can get liquid baby powder, which is nice for when regular baby powder is tough to put on.  At the 99 cent store, I can get a pack of six dish sponges that have a scour side.  They work great, and each pack usually lasts me a couple months.  At both stores, I like to get party supplies, especially for classroom parties.

I usually don't get shampoo and soap, but when my son was in the hospital last month, I found some Spiderman shampoo and Scooby Doo soap at Dollar Tree and got those for him.  It made his hospital stay a bit more tolerable.

I don't shop at Dollar Tree but maybe once every 2 years if I'm desperate.

Yes we buy a good bit from there. Some of things you have to be mindfull tho because you certainly get what you pay for.

We sometimes buy...toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, body wash.

Cards, kid's stocking stuffers and other seasonal items.

I love the dollar store! I have a bunch of the Betty Crocker kitchen gadgets as they are decent quality. Party supplies and gift bags (when I actually need them, I reuse most), the little bags for dirty diapers, holiday decorations, seasonal stuff like water toys and sand buckets for summer and stocking stuffers, coloring books, baskets and containers for organizing, toothbrushes and I don't generally get cosmetics, but I always look through them because occasionally there are good brands. I have L'Oreal and Physicians Formula eye shadows from there. And if I'm planning on heading to the movies, I'll pick up some candy. Oh, and spices.

I don't get most food ( other than above mentioned candy and occasional treats for the kids), paper products, toiletries,candles or toys.
