Last weekend I was able to go into one of my favorite places on earth, the Dollar Tree. I took in $16 cash so I wouldn’t end up spending $50. Am I the only one who has walked out of the Dollar Tree with $50 in $1 items? Maybe it’s just me. 🙂
Here’s my stack of items before I pruned my picks before check out. I had about $20 worth of items in this stack and I needed to put a few items back.
This is what I finally settled on:
- Two dry erase boards with dry erase markers (for my 2 & 4 yr olds)
- One ABC and lined letter writing dry erase board (for my 6 yr old)
- Two Elmo Alphabet workbooks (for my 2 & 4 yr olds)
- One Alphabet Domino Game (for my 6 yr old)
- One 20 piece box of sidewalk chalk (we have several chalk board walls in our house)
- One 2-pack of scissors
- Two 3-packs of stick glue
- Five colorful storage containers
I bought the fun colored plastic containers to use creatively for storage. I used one for a large crayon tub. I used another one to store stencils and another container to hold markers.
Our older boys always have duct tape and tools available for different project inspirations. I just threw their latest collection of supplies in its own storage tub as well.
Here’s Naomi and Gabriel enjoying a clean work area and the new marker tub. Look closely at this picture. Can you tell that Gabriel has been enjoying the markers a little too much? 🙂
And don’t think our work area is picture perfect by any means. Next up I’m sharing with you the huge mess that I finally cleaned up in this room.
So tell me, what are some of your favorite items to pick up at the Dollar Tree?
