There’s a magical, wonderful place that exists in almost every town that is capable of making dreams come true. It’s not Target, or Starbucks…it’s…
THE DOLLAR STORE.
I was just hanging around this afternoon, and I realized that I needed something. I can’t remember what it was, but I had this crazy idea that maybe, just maybe, the dollar store might have it for a decent price. (…)
So, I went to the Dollar Tree over in Middleton, and I must not have been in a dollar store for a long time, because I completely forgot…they have everything there. And it’s all just a dollar. Or less! They have 89-cent candy bars, the regular sized ones and not the gas station/Walgreens/airport steroid-jumbo sizes! And before you say anything, yeah, I know that a ton of the stuff in the dollar store is crap, but if you bought it, well, you only wasted a dollar instead of the $4.95 you would have at Target.
I came in looking for one thing, and left with 7 dollars and 39 cents fewer to my name, but a bag full of happiness.
- An iPhone charging cord
- Bandanas (they’re not the best looking though, they might go in the trash)
- Travel shampoo and body lotion in a little kit
- Apple-cinnamon incense sticks
- Lucky Country licorice, strawberry (it’s from Australia and SO DELICIOUS)
- A book light that looks like a little old desk lamp
- A jump rope (just for fun)
I am never shopping anywhere else again.
I saw a woman shopping there with her young daughter; when I have children and they want a treat, I will give them $10 and let them run free in the dollar store.
