The last time I visited a dollar store I was amazed how many products were available for purchase that cost much more than one dollar at regular stores. I got a really nice letter opener, a leather bound business card holder, name brand pens, bleach (I mean bleach is bleach... why buy a name brand and pay more!). I found a package of three small rubber balls that I use on two sides of my dog's wire crate to keep it from marking up the walls. I purchased a desk top fan that I use on my computer desk to keep my gateway router/modem cool. I use baby wipes extensively (no baby), around the house so I got a large package of an off brand. They worked just as well as the expensive types. I found some cute soft squeaky toys for the dogs that were really small because that's the kind my two Chihuahuas like. I think I ended up spending about $30 on all the things I bought. Probably would have cost me triple that in a regular store. I can't wait to go back again!
