10 Products You Should Always Buy From The Dollar Tree

Why buy something for $5 that you could get for $1 here?

10 Products You Should Always Buy From The Dollar Tree

If you have a Dollar Tree in your town, you probably are not utilizing it correctly. There are many products that can be found at the Dollar Tree (or similar dollar stores) that are much more expensive elsewhere. Here are 10 products you should always buy at the Dollar Tree rather than other stores.

1. Small school supplies

Around back-to-school time, Dollar Tree offers a wide range of school supplies for much cheaper than you would find elsewhere. Items like scissors, paperclips, and sticky notes should always be bought here, as the quality is the same what is sold at other stores.

2. Candy

If you're the type of person who take their own candy into the movies, a quick stop at the Dollar Tree is a must. Movie-sized candy is sold here for several dollars less than what you would find at the theater. Just make sure your purse is big enough to fit it all!

3. Greeting Cards

Most Dollar Trees have a nice-sized greeting card section, offering cards for 50 cents each. Stop wasting money at larger stores and stock up at the Dollar Tree.

4. Holiday decorations

Around the holidays (or two to three months before the holidays, to be realistic), the Dollar Tree sells a great selection of holiday decorations, such as small strands of Christmas lights, autumn decor, and pretty much whatever else you would need seasonally. I've also seen sparklers sold here before, offering 2-4 boxes for a dollar. Great deal!

5. Pregnancy tests

Although I've never tried these myself, I have heard from multiple sources that Dollar Tree pregnancy tests are just as accurate as more expensive ones.

6. Medicine

Dollar Tree sells many different types of medicine such as pain killers, allergy relief, gas medicine, and more. Check out their supply before spending several more dollars at your normal stores.

7. Reading glasses

If you're someone who doesn't need prescription glasses but still could use help reading smaller print, Dollar Tree has a good supply of cheap glasses that may be perfect for you, ones you could spend $5 on somewhere else.

8. Gift bags

Dollar Tree actually has a good-sized selection of gift bags that would be way more expensive elsewhere. Check out what they have to offer before spending more money than you need to.

9. Cheap phone cases

As someone who doesn't like to spend more than a few bucks on a phone case anyway, Dollar Tree is the perfect place to look for me to look for stylish ones at a great price. Offering cases that fit most popular phones, it's a great deal to fancify your boring-colored phone, while offering a little protection.

10. Tissues

You just can't go wrong getting tissues at Dollar Tree; they're way cheaper than you'd find at a normal store but do the job just as well.

Although many products found at dollar stores are a waste of money because of the lack of quality they possess, these 10 items are safe to buy and save you tons of money in the long run.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
