The Dollar Store
I am not a huge fan of the dollar store, give me the Target Dollar Spot anyday! That being said, we headed to the dollar store today (the one by Old Navy, I think it's a Dollar Tree) in search of treasures. Boy did we hit it big! Treasures galore! We got light up St. Patricks Day necklaces, 680 princess stickers, a Kung-Fu Panda egg dying kit and some cute new easter eggs. But we hit the motherload (in my opinion) by the check stand. They had boxes of Chex Mix Bars in Chocolate Chunk and Turtle flavors AND 100 calorie packs of granola bars (oreo, chips ahoy, and nutter butter variety). The Chex Mix bars have 6 in a box and the granola bars have 12 in a box, for those of you doing the math, that's a good deal for only one dollar. For those of you not doing the math, I recommend a calculator. And for those of you with $5 dollars to burn, I recommend you haul butt down to the Old Navy and get your St. Patrick's Day shirt. That was the other point of our excursion in which we succeeded. But let me tell you that they don't have much of a selection this year, due to the economy. Or the lack of interest in St. Patty's, not really sure. So for those of you who are counting, ONLY 26 DAYS UNTIL ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!
