10 Dollar Store Finds, Tips & Tricks... including a "10 products in 10 minutes" video

I love a good bargain... and I really love inexpensive tips and tricks that make my life easier. So, today I am sharing my latest 10 favourite dollar store finds and some great ideas for using them (in no particular order).

1) Large unfinished crate - I love the size and shape of this crate. It would be great for storage, and I have big plans for updating it with a little DIY. It's really good quality for the price. 

I feel like these crates are going to go quickly, so if you see them in your store, make sure to grab one!

2) Water Bottles - I love everything about these water bottles: the colour, the spout at the top, the size, the shape, and the fact that they are BPA free.

I plan to add my boys' names to the bottom of the bottles with my Cricut. If you are crafty, these water bottles make perfect (and inexpensive) blanks.

3) Sturdy cutting board storage rack - I love how solid and sturdy this metal storage rack is. It would be great for storing cutting boards and pot lids... but it's also good for storing iPads, Chromebooks, and paperwork. It's a great tool for getting organized and managing clutter.

4) Pressed wood crafting blanks - I love the inexpensive crafting materials that you can buy at the dollar store... and my new favourites are the ones pictured below. I can't wait to start crafting with the new rounds I found for less than $1 each!

5) Valentine's Day jam jars - I love these little jam jars. They would be adorable filled with homemade treats are store bought Valentine's Day candy. So cute!

6) Metal bird - This was the cutest piece of decor I have found at the dollar store in a long time. It has a lot of character for such a tiny little piece, and I can't wait to add it to my Valentine's Day tiered tray.

7) Oven safe glass dishes - These heart-shaped bowls would be adorable filled with candies for Valentine's Day... but they would also be really cute used to bake individual goodies. I plan to cook small individual cookie tarts in these oven safe glass dishes, and I know they'll be a huge hit with my boys.

8) Dollar store treats - Treats from the dollar store are staples at our weekly family movie nights. The Old Dutch sea salt & malt vinegar chips are our favourites. They have a great crunch... and they are only 50 cents a bag. If you haven't tried them, you totally should!

9) Winter gear - I have been buying dollar store ski gloves for my kids for years. My boys lose a lot of gloves, so having an abundant and inexpensive supply is helpful.

I also love the magic gloves because they are easy to slip in your coat pockets, purse, or glove compartment. And the cozy (sherpa lined) neck warmers are fantastic too. They keep the kids warm without being a chocking hazard.

10) Helpful kitchen items - The non slip mat is large and can be cut to fit any drawer.. and the pre-cut 
parchment paper is super convenient. Both of these items are bargains and really helpful in the kitchen.

I'm super excited about all my Dollarama finds this week, and I hope I've inspired you to go looking for a few of these fun finds.
