Christmas is an expensive time of year. I’m always looking for ways to save money when I can.
The dollar store is a great place to go to save money. I don’t just go at Christmas time, I go all year long!
But this post is about all of the things you can buy from the dollar store to save money at Christmas time. Now is the best time to go!
I know, I know, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. But you wouldn’t know that if you went to the dollar store right now. There shelves are full of goodies for the big holiday.
I went today and found 20 things you can buy for Christmas to save money. Some of the things I bought myself and some I will be going back to get. I had my daughter with me so I couldn’t buy anything for the kids. 🙂
Cookies and Christmas go hand in hand. The dollar store has cookie cutters to help you make the perfect holiday cookies. This is one of the things I bought today.
If you’re going to make cookies for friends and family you’re going to need a tin to put them in. These cookie tins are cute and only $1 each.
Their Christmas decor is on jam! They have really stepped it up. I bought this snowman today. He’s already hanging on one of our doors. It just says “let it snow” so technically he’s not just for Christmas.
Here is some more of their decor:
I probably could have bought 10 more!
Do you have dishware for Christmas? I know it’s not fine china, but it’s cute and inexpensive.
The dollar store has a lot of ornaments too. You get 15 for $1….that’s a heck of a deal. They also have individual ornaments you can buy that are a little fancier.
What’s Christmas without a Santa hat chair cover? Why would you want to spend a bunch of money on this when you only use it one time a year?
This tablecloth is festive, plus it has the flannel backing. Did I mention it’s only $1!?
They have platters for the holiday season.
Stocking stuffers!! There is a ton of stuff to choose from. I thought these were really cute. Pencils, pencil sharpeners and erasers are just a few of the things.
How cute are these oven mitts and towels!? I can remember when the dollar store had these and they weren’t too cute.
Candy canes filled with candy have been around forever. They have a lot to choose from too.
These Tootsie Roll banks remind me of being a kid. I got one of these for Christmas every year, and I looked forward to it! I couldn’t believe they still make them.
This is the last one from the candy isle. Candy canes are a huge part of Christmas and they are great to eat or decorate a tree with. The dollar store had a large variety of flavors.
Gift bags can be very expensive. I bought this one today. It’s hard to tell by the picture but Santa’s beard is glittery. Their gift bags are really cute!
You’re going to need tissue paper to fill those dollar store gift bags with. You can get 16 sheets for only $1.
14 boxed Christmas cards for only $1!? That is a heck of a deal.
Treat bags are always good to have on hand. Plus the dollar store has all kinds of candy you can fill them with.
Buying artificial flowers from a craft store can add up fast. Not to worry, the dollar store has your back.
Ornament hooks…who wants to spend their hard earned money on this!? You can get 200 for only $1 and you’re all set.
So you have your home and tree decorated, but now you need something for yourself. These headbands are festive and cute. Honestly, I think they are good for kids and adults.
I went to Dollar Tree to find all of these goodies. They have thousands of stores across the continental US. I suggest you go now and find some Christmas goodies!! I had so much fun looking around.
