Rosey Things From The Dollar Store...

Oh my goodness....

I had so much fun at the dollar store yesterday. There is a Dollar Tree store very close to where I live and as I hadn't been there for quite some time, I decided to stop in for a quick visit on my way to the grocery store to see if they had anything interesting in stock. Boy-oh-boy did they ever. Talk about a girly girl and rose lovers paradise. Look at all of these pretty rose covered office items I found.

Beautiful and sturdy file folders ($1 for a pack of 3)....


Notecards ($1 for a pack of 8)...

Note pads...

Smaller size "matchbook" note pads ($1 for pack of 2) that will be great for keeping in my purse to jot down quick notes when I need to....

"Shopping List" and "Reminder" note pads that have a magnet on the back so that I can hang them on my refrigerator...

An 8" x 5 1/4" inch clip board....

And that wasn't all I found. I've been on the look out for a fly swatter to kill those pesky flies and other winged creatures that sometimes manage to sneak inside the house. As soon as I walked into the dollar store, I found the cutest fly swatters hanging on the wall. They came in several different colors (with me choosing a pink one of course..), and what makes them even more special is that they all had these big old flowers attached to one side if the swatter. Now I even have something pink and pretty to use to get rid of those ugly and annoying little bugs.....LOL

Lots of pretty goodies for very little money. It's amazing what great things you can find at the dollar store. Really makes me wonder why other larger retail stores can get away with charging so much money for basically the same thing. Haven't you ever wondered about that yourself?

I'll be back soon for "Teacup Tuesday", so make sure and come back for another visit then.

We were just at our Dollar Tree yesterday. Mostly getting everyday items like toilet paper. Ours recently added a cold case too for caring cold and frozen items. I got a large sheet of foam board for a $1 for a project. I know that would cost more somewhere else. We shop there every week now. Oh and those items you bought, ours carries those too. I have admired them, but never bought them. They are really pretty. Though I don't remember seeing the flyswatters. I will have to look next time. I love how it has a pretty thing on it.
