I did a post a while back about the brand new Container Store that came to my neck of the woods – remember that one?
While I LOVE The Container Store, they are not always as cost-effective as specific projects require. When I’m working on something like I’m working on now (I’ll reveal once it’s complete, no worries!) and I need more items than normal, I don’t necessarily want to spend upwards of $10 for one container.
I often purchase things that may only be used once or twice at the Dollar Tree – items for centerpiece bases for parties, baskets for give-aways, gift boxes, etc. So I was aware that they probably had what I needed for this particular project, but when I walked in, they had MORE than I needed.
Well, I didn’t need any hangers, but if I did I think I could have them a different color for every day of the week!
They had some great “smaller items” organization stuff, too. Didn’t need any of that, either, but I still thought it was pretty cool!
Color-coded vegetable and dip containers?! WOW!
Now these? These I needed! And I bought quite a few of different shapes and sizes.
I mean the containers. But the potholders were pretty awesome, too!
I got some of these…
…and these lil’ ones!
And then I saw the mother-load!
I mean, seriously! Your kids are home for the summer, right? Time to organize the playroom? You’ve got everything you need right here!
I ended up leaving with everything I need for under $20. UNDER $20. That’s fantastic!
This post doesn’t even touch on all of the baskets, food storage containers, glass jars, hooks, drawer organizers and more that you can find at the Dollar Tree. My point is, the next time you’re trying to organize something and you’re on a strict budget, check out your local Dollar Tree!
