3. Books: Coloring Books, Learning Books, Flashcards, Kids Books
4. Bath Products: Shampoo & Conditioner, Kids Bubble Bath, Shaving Cream, Bath Sponges

  1. I love to shop at the Dollar Stores. Hair Accessories, Mylar Balloons, Scrapbooking Supplies & Greeting Cards are some of my faves from the Everythings $1 type stores.

  2. Teaching materials- so pretty much anything in the store!

  3. Very good list . . . these are the same kinds of things I buy at the Dollar Store. I also like to buy make-up there and have been able to find name brands of lip gloss, nail polish, etc. I tend to stay away from food purchases at Dollar Stores.

  4. We have a Honk's chain nearby and they do .88 Tuesdays which is an even better deal! We bought composition books there and personalized them for all of our co-workers. The same exact product was $2.50 at office max.
