One Dollar

A Small Dollar Haulage
Is there anything for a dollar anymore? Whatever happened to being able to buy a six-pack of coke or a 16 oz box of lucky charms cereal for a buck? Yes, those were the good old days. In other words, I would love to find good quality items without always paying an arm and a leg and possibly a big toe price. 
Does that make me a cheapskate? Sometimes all I want to do is pick up a few items that are not mandatory at the moment, but I desire to buy it. I stumbled upon some precious things at my local dollar hub. So, come on in and take a little peek
I love a good bargain, and you guys know this right? But lately, I've felt as if the dollar stores had fallen off the cute wagon. Everything was appearing to look plastic with a lightweight feel. So, I stopped going for awhile. 
Until a few weeks ago, my daughter Carey wanted to buy a simple makeup bag that she can take on road trips. So we popped our big ole' heads into the local store where everything is a dollar.
After walking around for a second, I ran back to the front and got myself a buggy to toss items in to. Yeah, I saw some stuff that made me want to kick my heels up and twirl.

Ok, here's the deal it is a method when shopping at the dollar spot. Yes, girl, it is a method to the madness because it's easy to spend 50 buckaroos on dollar items.

The Plan
First I start with the beauty section: This time I found myself the cutest little travel makeup bag. Surprisingly it holds a lot of stuff in it.  A box filled with manicure items, a sturdy leopard brush, beauty blender and a soft kabuki brush. The quality was terrific, and I am pleased with the look and feel of each item.

The second item I like to strobe by is the book section. Yall the dollar spot is where it's at when it comes to books. I got lost at the cuteness and new releases that are available. This go round I got two Moments of Faith which is a small and relaxing morning book to read while having coffee and tea. So, cute and inspirational.

The next book I found was named 940 Saturdays. I knew I hit the jackpot with this one because it has pages for me to write down events and more. Also, there is a small little pamphlet on the back side filled with ideas for the weekend. This has been my best purchase yet. I was stoked about it. 
I love planning weekly, weekend and daily things to do. Now I can have something to keep all my notes separate from recipes, and social media codes amongst other things.

One of my favorite things to buy is coffee cups when possible. This time I found two that were very well made. The Best Is Yet To Come and the other one read Start Everyday With A Grateful Heart. 

Lastly, I purchased a few glass containers with lids two loaves of bread from the food section. I am so glad I made this trip because I am back in love with the dollar store, as long as I can continue finding cute and girly items.

What are your favorite things at the moment from the dollar store?
