Smart Purchases From The Dollar Store, To make your dollar store shopping even easier, we’ve compiled a list of best dollar store buys. Never been? You’re missing out. The dollar store aisles are teeming with treasures just waiting to save you money. Here’s what you can get:

Party Supplies. Dollar stores are awash in party supplies like balloons filled with helium, which go for $1 each compared with $3 to $8 elsewhere. Unfilled balloons come in packs of 25 for $1. You can also load up on party decorations, gift bag fillers, and invitations (eight for $1) at the dollar store. And for those all-important presents, you’ll find wrapping paper, gift bags, tissue paper (25 sheets for $1), and tape (two rolls for $1).

Stationery/Office Supplies. While school supplies are best bought in August during back-to-school sales, the dollar store is a good place to stock up year-round. Check your local dollar store for pens, pencils, markers, and crayons — which come in packs of two to eight for $1 — as well as paper and Post-it notes. For school projects, you can get presentation boards or two pieces of poster board for $1. Money Crashers points out that the dollar store is a good place to get mailing supplies for cheap — for instance, two bubble envelopes for $2. You can also pick up two greeting cards for $1.

Kitchen Gear. Every time we visit the dollar store we’re surprised to find decent glass dishes and heavy-duty plasticware for a dollar per piece. What’s more, you can set your whole table with $1 items. At many dollar stores you’re bound to find tablecloths, placemats, table runners, cloth napkins, candle holders, serving pieces, flatware, wine glasses, coffee mugs, and more in matching sets for $1 per item.

You’ll also find casserole dishes, baking tins, cookie sheets, and the like for $1 to $4. Oh, yes, salt and pepper shakers and food storage containers are available too, in sets of two to four for $1, depending on size. Stock up on paper plates and plastic utensils; $1 buys 30 foam plates and 48 pieces of plasticware.
