Dollar tree has a great selection of frozen food. Particularly their selection of frozen fruit and vegetables. I personally hoard their frozen blueberries. Blueberries can cost upward of $3 per bag at your standard grocery store. You can get the same amount at Dollar Tree for $1. They also have frozen strawberries, peaches, corn, broccoli asparagus, and much more. I often take advantage of these for smoothies and side dishes.


2.) Holiday Decorations

They tend to have a diverse selection of decorations, enough so that you can do most your decoration shopping at Dollar Tree alone. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, New Years, you name it they’ll have it.

Greeting cards, birthday cards, get-well-soon cards, regardless of situation can add up when they are $3-$4 a pop. Most Dollar Tree locations have a massive selection of cards. I’ve found myself buying cards there just to stockpile at home should I ever need one in a pinch. Also, helps to have them on hand to save yourself the trip.


5.) Spices

When you run out of spices Dollar Tree is easily the best place to go for replacements. For years, I would spend around $2-$3 on replacements at my local grocery store. Little did I know that Dollar Tree offered those exact same spices at their stores for $1.


6.) Candy/Snacks

Most Dollar Tree stores have an entire aisle dedicated candy and another aisle dedicated to general snacks. I’ve often used their selection for when I need candy for a birthday gift or when I needed snacks for an event or party. This can make Dollar Tree shopping much more sweeter!


7.) Books/Novels/Coloring Books

They often have popular books and novels on sale for $1. How can you beat that? Not to mention coloring books for kids.

It always surprises me how many great books you can find if you check regularly. Certainly something you should always check out on your Dollar Tree shopping trips.


8.) Party Supplies
