Mighty Dollar Finds

Being a bargain shopper I can’t find any place cheaper than Mighty Dollar. You know, those dollar stores where everything is only $1.00? You still have to be careful though because you can easily pay a dollar for an item that you can get a Walmart for less than a dollar.

I like to stop in the dollar store about once every couple of weeks to grab small bags of candy to fill my candy dish. I usually grab the creamy chocolaty goodness of Hersey Kisses. Nick will grab a few types of cookies or chips he likes that he can’t seem to find anywhere else. So, the other day we stopped in Mighty Dollar so Nick could grab some unsalted pork skins. He loves those things and this is the only place he can find the unsalted ones. 

That's when I came across some berry boxes.....BINGO!

I have actually been looking for a reusable berry box since I seen them at Krogers while I was at the beach this Summer. Nick always has blueberries in the refrigerator for his oatmeal. He will usually keep them in the thin little berry container they come in, which results in leaking after he rinses the berries off. 

This has worked perfect to keep his blue berries fresh and leak proof. I’m tickled with this find for only a dollar. I may go back for more.

Next, I found these damask pillow covers, so I grabbed two. I have a set of pillows that came with my sofa years ago and I am tired of the dark print that is on them.

I chose the cream color to match the curtains that are hanging nearby. These pillow cases zip on and off for easy cleaning. They are not the best quality, but they will get us by until we find some new furniture, which I hope is soon. Not bad for a dollar.

Before leaving the store I looked over at the kitchen isle and noticed these cute little wine bags hanging on the wall. I dug around in my purse for another dollar and grabbed one of these too. 

Not sure why, but I thought it was darling. It’s made of cotton canvas with a little drawstring. These little sacks would be perfect to use when giving wine as a gift. A bottle of wine is a great “thank you gift” when your invited to a gathering with friends.

  4. We don't have those stores here. We do shop at thrift stores though and we've bought some great things cheap.

  5. Those berry boxes look really cool! I'm also intrigued by the unsalted pork rinds!
