From the number of articles I’ve written praising the dollar store, a logical person could assume I have stock in the industry.  Not so.  I just happen to think that dollar stores are the best thing that happened for frugal wanna-be’s since the advent of coupons.

Just in case I haven’t already sold you on dollar stores, though, I’ve compiled a list of some of the things that can be bought for a dollar.  Please note, however, not every dollar store carries every item that I listed.

Also keep in mind that some dollar store items are of poor quality.  I’ve put an * by items that are of low quality.
