When family planning, at-home tests can get pricey. Dollar stores across the country offer more affordable options for those who are testing more often. One tip from the Good Housekeeping Institute: Make sure you follow the instructions closely and always confirm your pregnancy with a blood test from a doctor.
For decorative items that will only be on display for a few months out of the year, it’s not worth shelling out the big bucks. Instead, shop the Dollar Tree’s discounted selection of wreaths, florals, garland and more.
If you follow our recommendation for ditching your sponge every two to three weeks, you likely won’t want to overspend on them. Dollar General offers a six-pack for just a buck, meaning you’ll pay less than 13 cents a piece.
For notebooks and other paper products, you could be paying up to nine times the price at supply stores. Instead, opt for pads from the Dollar Tree. You’ll save some cash and will barely notice a difference in quality.
Instead of paying top dollar for a new vases every time you get a bouquet, opt for these cheaper options from Dollar Tree instead. They’re simplistic in design, but the flowers are what people are looking at anyway.
