Truth be told, the dollar store is one of my favorite stores. Whether it is Family Dollar in  Greenville SC, or Florida, your nearest Family Dollar has great stuff! Before going to a pricier retailer, you should always hit up your local dollar store first. I am not a super cheap person either. But why would anybody pay full price for everyday items that you can get for cheap?! They have many amazing items for your home, crafts, and so much more from the dollar store. And everything is just a dollar.

Whether I’m looking for cleaning items, something for a DIY project, or even a book, the one dollar store near me is my first stop! Whatever your need, you’ll probably find it at the dollar store.
