Top 10 Things to Buy at the DOLLAR STORE for Summer

I love summer... and it's a perfect time to pick up some great items from the dollar store. Today, I'm sharing my top 10 Dollarama finds, tips, tricks, and DIYs for summer. You're going to love these!

1) Garden stakes - These garden stakes are inexpensive, versatile, and sturdy. They are great for hanging solar lanterns. I also love them by a fire pit to hold all the necessary s'more supplies.

2) Organization tools - I love these chalkboard plant markers as bin labels. They are cheap and easy to use. The vacuum bags are great for storing items too. They are fantastic space savers!

3) Seasonal glassware - The dollar store always has fun seasonal glassware options. This year, I'm loving this little watering can for my tiered tray and this super-trendy iridescent glass.

4) Bird feeder - The dollar store has many options for feeding feathered friends, but I love this clear one. It attaches to a window, so it's perfect for birdwatching from inside the house.

5) Wasp deterent - I know this is a weird one, but I am a believer in this inexpensive item. Last year, we had a wasp nest under our porch, and after I put up this fake nest, the little pests disappeared. I was skeptical at first, but it really worked for me.

6) Summer lights - The dollar store has a large variety of fun summer lighting options. I love the solar lights and paper lanterns, but I also love this cheap option. The fairy lights are attached to a cork that can be inserted into an empty wine bottle. It's a fun option for a patio light.

7) Discounted name brand cosmetics and toiletries - The dollar store has a large variety of name brand cosmetics and toiletries at fantastic prices. My favourites right now are this Dove cream and this lip balm with SPF. Perfect for summer!

8) Galvanized buckets - The are many galvanized buckets optios , but this one is my favourite right now. It's flat on one side and has a fantastic rope hanger. I've already DIY'ed one for summer, but I bought extra ones for Fall and Christmas too!

9) Summer bags - There is a cheap bag for every style preference at the dollar store. I love this knit, ombre bag... but go to the dollar store and choose what YOU like. I guarantee you'll be able to find something to suit YOUR taste.

10) Plant pots - I love the large variety of planters available at the dollar store. There are tons of different colour, size and style options. I love the brightly coloured ones and the faux concrete options. They can be used for plants, but I transformed one of mine into a tabletop fire bowl. What do you think?!?
