Frugal Friday: Aawesome Dollar Tree Find!

You see the title, Islander.  It's been a long time since we had a Frugal Friday!  I'm so excited to share something that just came off the truck at your local Dollar Tree!


First, let me say that these bags are currently sold for a LOT more elsewhere:


I was so excited to see them on the end caps near the register and HAD to buy one box (they come with two inside).  You simply take the bag, clip it to the sides of the cart and fill it at checkout.  THEN, when it's time to carry the items to the car, simply un-clip, grab the handles and carry to the car!


I didn't believe these would work but, let me just tell you, they do!  Hurry to your Dollar Tree and find this AMAZING DEAL before it's gone!

Frugal Friday - Dollar Tree Finds!

You may recall the Dollar Tree series in October.  In that series, I shared fabulous finds in one of my favorite stores!  Just because the series came to end doesn't mean I don't frequent "the spot!"  During a recent visit, I found three new items I absolutely LOVE!  Here they are:

1. Animal Print Bows




The Dollar Tree gift bag section has great quality bags sold at a major discount!  I check out the latest selection with every visit and I've found some really nice bows.  These new animal print bows are fabulous - great quality, shimmery, and large!

2. Magnetic Tins


How awesome are these tins?  Sold in the office supply aisle, they would work perfectly holding herbs on the outside OR INSIDE of a refrigerator.  These tins are sold at Bed Bath & Beyond for $3/each.  Don't believe me?  Check it out yourself here.

3.  Personal Fan


I love the idea of these fans for use during the hot summer months but also for use to set makeup during the application process or attached to a stroller to keep little ones cool!  I always check the electronic section for cool phone cases, accessories (selfie sticks, hello!), styluses and small electronics like the fan.  How perfect would a personal fan be at an amusement park or cookout?

Islanders, head over to your Dollar Tree in search of awesome goods for $1 or less!  You can't go wrong!

Purple and Gold Sweets Table

Months ago, I was hired to provide a simple sweets table design for a purple and gold bridal shower.


Thanks to Sheena, I had awesome frames.  I inherited those awesome frames from DatMyHoney's nursery.  



I spray painted them gold and they were one of the unifying features on the sweets table!

DIY Febreeze!

I've shared my love of laundry detergent and how it makes my soul happy.  Remember the tutorial for carpet and mattress refresher (here)?  Just last week we talked about DIY wax melts (here).  Today, I'm sharing one of my favorite uses for a laundry aisle purchase!
