60 Everyday House Items You Can Buy at the Dollar Store

Shopping for your home is always a challenge when you don’t know where to get stuff.

Where can I buy some mittens?

How much will it cost to get a few gift wraps?

Where can I get some batteries for the smoke detector tonight?

You are already paying almost $12 every month for Amazon Prime, so it’s automatically the first place that comes to mind. After all, they sell everything!

However, what if we told you that most of the stuff you buy for your home can be purchased at the dollar store?

That’s right! That store that we dread so much due to fear of inferior quality and horrible customer service is not so bad after all.

On the contrary, you can find some decent stuff there, and most of the items you would go and buy at Walmart instead are from the same factory in China as that of the dollar store, just with a higher price tag.
