penny-wise wednesday

I was sad to get the news that my favorite paper product party supplier went out of business. That was a sad day indeed since they were so inexpensive and had a multitude of choices for colors, plate sizes, table cloths, etc. {Moment of silence for their closure.}

BUT, I was elated to discover that a Dollar Tree opened just up the road. I’m saved! It’s all clean and shiny, too, which is a big benefit since some dollar bargain stores can be a little… well… nasty. Not this one, though. It was a great experience perusing each of the aisles thoroughly as I prepared for my latest party (a baby shower that you’ll see here tomorrow!). There are definitely times to use paper ware versus dish ware (see my tips on paper ware versus dish ware here). That said, the Dollar Tree is fantastic. And truly, EVERY.THING is JUST.ONE.DOLLAR. It’s not like other dollar bargain stores that lure you in with the idea of being just a buck, but come to find out it’s really a some-things-might-be-a-dollar store (but most things aren’t!). So, I was able to stock up my paper product cupboard and provide some lovely eating ware for my guests all for a fraction of what it would cost at other retailers, plus clean up was a breeze!

Here are some great savings deals for you today!
