I know I’ve mentioned before that I appreciate a good deal and, like many people, I find that the upcoming holidays, while an amazing time with family and friends, can also take a huge chunk out a budget!
So what can you do to give your family and friends fun gifts at a fraction of the price? Throughout my Gift Guide, I plan on sharing some creative ideas about where to shop for gifts!
Today I want to talk about Dollar Stores!
While some people may be laughing because they don’t think shopping at Dollar Stores is very creative, I know that for others, like me, it isn’t the first place I’d think to go to buy a gift! I generally don’t get to the Dollar Stores in our town very often and, if I do, I pop in for specific items and then head out again. The reason I often don’t browse in Dollar Stores is that I tend to remember the days when shopping in these stores meant getting lower quality, knock-off items rather than brand names.
Last weekend, however, I went in and actually went through a couple of our local stores and I was amazed at what you can get for a dollar or two in these stores and the quality of these items as well! I actually picked up some small gifts and they cost me a fraction of the price they would have been if I’d bought them anywhere else!
So, if you are like me and hadn’t thought of doing some shopping at the Dollar Stores, I would suggest you reconsider as there are great gifts (and deals) to be had there!
