The Most Unbelievable Dollar Tree Store Items that will Blow Your Mind

Dollar Tree Store Items

I grew up in Detroit, Michigan. The city is best known for its Motown music and automobile design. Yet, it was more than The Temptations and fancy cars that caught my attention. From very early on it was the bargain hunt that got a hold of me and it’s still part of my game.

I am my mother’s daughter and as soon as I abandoned pigtails, I was taught how to find the deal of the century but only if it had real value. She showed me how to look for quality and save money by paying less. I was hooked. It was the excitement of scoring the best of the best on sale. Bargain basement prices for coveted items.

I can still hear my mother saying, “Good is good” which means a lot more to me today than it did back then.

Recently, I found The Dollar Tree. It’s the best-kept secret because sometimes the “finds” there are- out-of-this-world. You just have to know what to look for and everything is for a mere bitty $1. You’ll be amazed at what unbelievable Dollar Tree store items you can find if you hit it just right.

  1. Yes, yes I do love discovering high quality bargains! I am in the dollar store about once a month because I buy all my greeting cards there (great bargains!). I always tool around and see if there is anything I need, or great organizing finds that might benefit a client. Why pay more than you need to, right?

    1. I bought the most beautiful and durable dishes and bar glasses several years ago for Thanksgiving when my husband kept inviting more people and I realized I needed more dishes. That’s when I discovered The Dollar Tree and how amazing it can be. You’re back to school items are an incredible bargain too!

  2. While reading your post, I was thinking, “It’s too bad we don’t have Dollar Tree in Canada” then I decided to check. Guess what – not only do we have it here, there’s one less than 10 minutes away from my home! I will have to check it out one of these days (still limiting my outings at the moment).

    1. You definitely have to check it out but only when it’s safe. I’ve gone recently but just to prepare for this article.
      When you’re ready to shop there, keep in mind that you can find the best items and deals around the holidays and often it’s hit or miss. But when you hit it, you can hit it big.

  3. I’m not a big Dollar Store shopper, but I appreciate the “tour” you gave of the wonderful finds. When we used to go to the movie theatre, we’d often stop at the Dollar Store first to purchase candy for….yes, you guessed it, one dollar. The same box cost $5 or more in the theatre. We’re not big candy eaters, but there is something about movies and candy that go together. I’m thinking about Milk Duds!

    1. OK, stop right there. Milk duds has been my favorite candy since childhood. I would devour the whole box at the movies and then cried when I had to go to the dentist.
      To tell you the truth, I didn’t know very much about The Dollar Tree until two years ago. It’s just an amazing store with fantastic finds, when you can find them. Kind of like Lohmans but much cheaper.

  4. Your Dollar Tree store is much much bigger than the ones I’ve been to. Mine is a very small – 2 or 3 aisles – and carries bargains for sure on some of the items you describe. If I lived near a store like yours, I would definitely be shopping there more often.

    1. Even though your store is small, I bet they have great finds from time to time. You just have to look for them! Of course, when it’s safe to go.

  5. I’m a fan of The Dollar Tree we have several in our area. It’s my first stop before shopping other places for organizing products to save money! Thanks for sharing your finds!

    1. I honestly believe that The Dollar Tree Is the best kept secret. There are so many great finds, especially around the holidays.
      When I stopped by there recently to prepare for this post, I couldn’t believe how fantastic the back to school supplies were. It’s just amazing.

  6. Wow! So many great ideas. You can’t go wrong when it comes to glassware. I also use the dollar store to stock up on holiday cards, gift wrap, stationary, etc.

    Love all your organizing solutions too! Thanks for sharing.

    1. The dollar tree is such a fun place to shop. There’s always something special, as you walk in, which highlights the deal of a deal for that week. Their cleaning supplies are amazing.Some of the glassware is thick and heavy. Pretty much unbreakable.

  7. Wow! I really need to go to Dollar Tree. I usually go to Dollarama first (not sure why?). I have picked up gift items at dollar tree in the past like really cute napkins with great sayings and other little gifty things to add to my gifts that would be a fortune at any other store. PS. Love the name of your blog 🙂

    1. As I was developing my blog, The Organizing Confessions just came to me. Thank you, I thought it was fun.
      I’ve only been going to the Dollar Tree for two years and I’m hooked. I’ve gotten the most amazing items.

  8. I purchase all my greeting cards at Dollar Tree. Such great value! Sadly the store nearest my home is small, so doesn’t carry a lot of the items you mentioned. Every once in awhile I’ll travel to the large Dollar Tree Store to do some shopping.

    1. I feel like a kid in a candy store when I’m at the Dollar Tree. It’s fun! I’ve only gone once since the pandemic and that was recently to take photos and videos for the post.

      Believe it or not, several others mentioned the greeting cards at the store. I’ve haven’t explored those yet but I absolutely will!

  9. The Dollar Tree is my favorite store–Hands Down! I find it a huge stress reliever for me to shop at the Dollar Tree. I have purchased the dishes for myself and my son. The dishes are great. They are heavy and photograph well. I also teach online classes. I buy many of my flash cards, toys, and props for my classes. Best Store Ever! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Gina. It is a fun store and I love everything I ever purchased there. No disappointments. There’s really something for everyone.
