I’m so glad I’m a stockpile type of person otherwise I would be pulling my hair out. The main thing I went to The Dollar Tree to find was hand sanitizer but it’s still sold out completely and mind you it’s MAY! So I got what I could and mainly focused on staying stocked up and keeping my home clean. Here are the best dollar tree finds I came up with for May 2020:
Of course the very first things I pick up are bleach and 50% alcohol. I’m not impressed with the 50% alcohol because it’s recommended by the CDC and WHO to be at the least 60% for what we are dealing with right now. The hand sanitizer that is usually stocked is 70% so I was not happy about the alcohol but it’s better to use something rather than nothing. I can always use it in the house to wipe things down. But the LA’s Totally Awesome Bleach was a wonderful steal for $1.00! I put bleach in my dishwater (If you grew up in a black household this is a ritual for dish washing) and since I been reading a lot since I’ve been in lock down (apartment prison).
I read the back of the bleach container. It said to put a cup of it in the toilet, let it sit for 10-15 minutes then flush and your toilet will be white. I’m like yeah right but I’m bored so I do it and BAM!!!! My toilet is super clean! So I will be buying bleach every time I go to the dollar tree.
The essentials in any household are toilet paper and toothpaste. Both are a must have. I bought the toilet paper to be funny. I have plenty. It was just my first time seeing it on the shelves again. When I went to the register an older man attempted to buy (16) packs of toilet paper! The cashier had to tell him there is a limit of (2) packs of toilet paper per person. Another lady was coming in everyday asking if the hand sanitizer came in yet….I’m just puzzled like ummm you know you can make hand sanitizer at home right? And I have a weird obsession with having different flavored toothpaste… Don’t judge me…I’m different.
I kept seeing my Mom get these black olives all the time. I’m like it’s just black olives who cares?! But no! They are pitted and delicious and I ate a whole damn can of them for no reason which prompted me to pick up more. They are scrumptious.
Why so many gift boxes? No they are not for anybody. Nobody deserves to get sh*t! (I’m kidding..kinda) I take these gift boxes, cut them in halves and make them stronger with tape then use them for trays for my individual press on nail sets. It looks janky but it’s absolute genius…. No Cap (I always wanted to say that! I have no idea what it means)
COME ON! You really thought I was going to go to the dollar tree and not get any nail polish! It’s about to be summer and I saw this LA Colors bright ass pink called “Absolute” it’s color number 516. It’s a neon bright pink gorgeous shade. Can’t wait to make something tropical looking for them hot girls out there looking to smash somethin (Jokes ppl… these are all jokes)
That was my little best dollar tree finds / haul round up for May 2020. I spent a little over $12.00 which was in budget. Can’t wait to go back but for now I’m going to put myself on the second round of self quarantine just to be safe even though our “stay at home order” has been lifted in Georgia. Have fun out there! … but not too much fun… stay within 6 ft of each other… but be together… but not to close…this is confusing… I’m out!
