Dollar Tree offers shoppers a great value on everyday products from personal hygiene and holiday decorations to food and much more. All for just $1!! With thousands of stores located all 48 contiguous states, you are sure to find a store near you.
The problem? There are so many products available; how do you know you are getting the best value for your dollar?
How to Save Money at Dollar Tree:
1. Know your price points for products: Not everything at Dollar Tree is a good deal. Consider the unit price and quality before making a purchase. Often products like Ajax dish soap are $1 at Dollar Tree but only $0.97 at Walmart. Compare prices before you shop.
What should you buy? Cards, party supplies, gift wrap, serving dishes (perfect for taking to functions and just leaving them), kid craft items, coloring books, storage baskets and holiday decor.
What shouldn’t you buy? Kitchen utensils, foil and other storage bags, vitamins, soda, candy/chewing gum, school supplies (cheaper at other stores during back-to-school sales), canned pet food and all things with a plug.
2. Shop multiple locations: Each Dollar Tree will have different stock. Browse the stores in your area to see which has the best selection of items you purchase most. I tend to shop at the largest stores, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t missing out on deals at the small stores. You never know what hidden treasure will be around the next corner!
