Do you love a bargain?
I stopped in at the Dollar Tree yesterday to buy a simple Thanksgiving decoration. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any pilgrim stuff, but they’re well stocked with Halloween decorations and novelties. Some look cheap, but others are amaze-balls.
So, I grabbed my cell phone and shot some videos. Here’s just a sampling of what’s on the shelves:
We don’t get many trick-or-treaters anymore, so I don’t decorate for Halloween, but if I did, the Dollar Tree is where I’d go. I don’t like the super scary stuff, but the funny-spooky decorations are cool, and they have plenty of fun stuff that won’t frighten the little ones.
These solar-powered skulls and jack-o-lanterns have flashing eyes. They’re as heavy as rocks, so perfect to line a walkway to light up a path.
For hanging decorations, the paper lanterns would look festive dangling from a tree:
I don’t like spiders, but these paper spider-decor lanterns are neat looking:
This Dracula is creepy cool, and apparently it’s a mirror clinger:
Best find of the day by far: ladybug wings, bumble bee wings, matching skirts, and matching wands. Watch this video to see how cute they are:
They also have the same fairy wings I bought last year for my granddaughters to play dress up in.
The fairy wings and skirts were a huge hit. They didn’t have the green wings last year, so I got a pair this time.
A pair of fairy wings: one dollar. Hours of playtime: priceless!
Do you have a Dollar Tree or dollar store near you? If you’re like me, you need to stay out of the store so you don’t spend too much money. If you like to do arts and crafts projects, dollar stores are full of treasures.
Hope these tips are helpful to you or someone you know who might want to grab some bargain deals.
What are your thoughts? Is Halloween one of your favorite holidays? Do you like to decorate? Do you like good bargains? I’d love to hear from you.
The pumpkin with flashing eyes looks a little too happy.
Yes, happy and goofy. My kind of look!
