Steals at the Dollar Tree

December 31, 2008 at 12:11 PM (Food, Saving Money)

One of my favorite places to shop these days is the Dollar Tree.  I’m very selective about what I buy and only buy things that I know are a great deal and that we can use.  I went there today and was delighted to find some great deals on some unexpected items.  Also, on a side note, all of their Christmas stuff is 50% off.  I was able to get some super cheap Christmas things.

In addition to the Christmas items, here’s a list of some surprising things that I saw and bought (in some cases) at the Dollar Tree:

  1. Chicken broth (32 oz.) — I bought 3 of these.  Normally these run $2-3.  You can use them for everything.  Definitely a pantry must have.
  2. Minced garlic (9 oz.) — I bought 1 of these.  This would run $2-4 in the grocery store.  You can always use garlic!!
  3. Wine glasses — I didn’t buy any of these but I was shocked to see high quality wine glasses at the Dollar Tree.  Granted, you can get them for $2 at Pier 1 but that is still a $1 savings.
  4. Roasted red peppers (19 oz.) — I bought 3 of these.  This is a steal!  Normally, smaller jars run for $3-4 each.  These are large jars and they were only $1!!
  5. Soy milk (32 oz.) — I bought 1 of these.  I’m not a big fan of soy milk but I drink it occasionally anyway.  These tend to run $1.50-3 in grocery stores.

Those are the deals that I was most excited about today.  All for $1! Yay!  Have you found any consistently great bargains at some of your favorite stores?
