If you’re looking for a good deal, look no further than your local dollar store. You may have to rummage through some junk, but these stores - where everything costs $1 or less - are a goldmine for household productions, party decorations and beauty items with a price that can’t be beat. Here are a few of the best things you can buy at the dollar store.
Purchasing makeup can be quite expensive, but what many people don’t realize is the dollar store also sells cosmetics from name brands, such as Maybelline, Milani and Wet ’n Wild. For a fraction of the price, you can stock up on lipstick, mascara and eyeshadow to add to your makeup collection, and you’ll be saving so much money in the process.
When Halloween approaches, many people head out to stores and purchase $10 bags of assorted candies, but dollar store candy is a much cheaper alternative. For a buck, you can purchase boxed and bagged candy, such as Snickers and M&M’S. You can practically buy enough candy in bulk for everyone in your entire neighborhood without having to break the bank.
If you’re in need of nonprescription reading glasses, don’t even bother heading out to your local store and spending up to $15 a pair. Instead, the reading glasses sold at the dollar store are just as good. The best part is: They’re fairly good quality, and you won’t have to spend an arm and a leg to purchase them. Priced at just a buck, you can buy multiple reading glasses and keep them stashed around your home and in your car so you’ll never be without a pair.
If you’ve ever purchased a greeting card, I’m sure you’ve noticed just how expensive they can be. Some of the more expensive cards will run you up to $6, but at the dollar store, you can choose from a wide selection of cards for just a buck. The cards are pretty standard, so you probably won’t find one that’s made of expensive paper with fancy decorations. But the heartfelt messages are the same as the ones found on more expensive cards.
Looking to jazz up your hair with some fun accessories? Head out to the dollar store to stock up on headbands, ponytail holders and bobby pins for a fraction of the price. The dollar store even has hairbrushes and combs that are just as good as the items sold in regular stores. The only difference is: When you purchase hair accessories from the dollar store, you’ll have much more money leftover at the end of the day to spend on other things.
