NEVER Buy These Things at the Dollar Tree!
I love to visit the Dollar Tree every few weeks to see what’s new and especially when I'm low on $$$ but need a little retail therapy. But you know, not every product is the bargain it seems to be and here’s a list of what I’ve found to avoid at the Dollar Tree.
(out of focus) Arm & Hammer Baking Soda – Dollar Tree sell a 14 oz box for $1 and you can get a 2 lb box for about $1.25 at Target. Focused or unfocused, you can see where the deal lies.
Paint Brushes – I was so excited and thought, “I scored!” when I saw these but lo and behold, the hairs started coming out as soon as applied the brush with paint to the wood I was painting. Not worth the extra work of picking the hairs out of the paint.
Cookies/Candy – if you look at the weight on the bags, it’s significantly less than what I’ve found on sale in a supermarket or at the drugstore. I think these candy companies actually make up special weights of their candies/cookies just for these stores to sell.
I like to end on a positive note so stay tuned for a feature on the vast bargains at the Dollar Tree, including ones found in the beauty aisle!
But in the meantime, tell me in the comments if you have any items you avoid at the Dollar Tree!
