Back to School Shopping at Dollar Tree
How can you not love Dollar Tree?! Everything is only a buck. You can get anything and everything there. Which makes it a great place to shop for back to school!
My tips for shopping at Dollar Tree:
- Don’t forget that they do take manufacture coupons! Just make sure that it is the correct size for the coupon.
- Don’t be afraid to try off brand!
- They do accept returns
Right now, Dollar Tree has their holiday section set up for school. Most of it is nomral school supplies, such as crayons, glue, markers, ect.
Also in that section is hair stuff, socks, ect. You can get a three pack of socks for $1! You definitely should pick up their binders. My DT has 2inch binders for a buck. Those are like $5 at other stores!
DT is great for shopping for dorm stuff. Especially when it comes to storage. They have so much storage stuff. I love the little desk drawer containers. I have no real use for them, but I love them still. They would be great for storing rubber bands, paper clips, ect.
You can also pick up a laundry basket! It won’t be the best, but it will probably last as long as any of the other cheap ones you would pick up. Just don’t overload it like I did.
Even if you have a meal plan, you need to pick up some kitchen stuff. You can pick up silverware, plates, and cups at DT. And of course fill your mini fridge with food.
Did you know that DT has their own version of Really Useful Boxes? You get two for $1. The name brand usually sells for about $0.75 on sale.
My favorite thing at DT? They have frozen sandwich boxes!
