Dollar Store Scores- What have YOU found?
I thought I would create this, as I'm a penny pincher- but not in the extreme. But, if I can easily save a few bucks, I will.
So, this is my list of items I have scored on, or found, that can be used in arts or crafts at a Dollar Store- what have YOU found?

So..... what have you scored on for your arts or crafts at the Dollar Store?
I've found a lot of awesome things, most of which I still have sitting around or that I use a lot in soapmaking/packaging.
Resealable printed bags
Silicone ice cube trays
Colored ink pads
Sea glass shards
Clear loot bags
Plastic skeleton hands
Halloween mesh-style cloth
Misc. cooking utensils
I always see really neat stuff but I only tend to buy what I need as I need it.
Thanks for sharing! I always see stuff, sometimes I don't have the money at that time to get everything I would like. I haven't purchased EVERYTHING on my lists, but I wanted to share them for those looking for similar items for cheap, so they can know where they can look for the deals.
Here are a few more scores at the Dollar Store-
Window Catchers (the kind you paint then place in the window)
Plastic Storage Bins & Containers
Photo paper (printing)
Printing Labels (CD, DVD, Mailing, Address, etc.)
Hard cover books
Colored & Blacklight Bulbs
We don't have dollar stores or anything similar here in South Africa =
I've always wanted to go to one because I hear about them so much on sites like these
I know that the Dollar Tree has a website where you can purchase the items and have them shipped. I don't know if they ship to Africa, though. Worth checking out. Only issue is you need to order by the case or half case instead of each like you do in the stores.
Hope that helps you!
In England we have Pound Land, which is the same concept. One year as a bit of a joke, i bought my friends Disney socks from there for Christmas
