100 Days of Saving on Christmas: Day 15, Shop the Dollar Store for Gifts

100daysdollarThe dollar store is a very under-used resource when it comes to Christmas! They have many of the same items that larger stores (Wal-Mart, Target, etc.) have—but at a fraction of the price. For stocking stuffers, they have everything you need. Stocking stuffers don’t have to be iPods, expensive gift cards, or jewelry. Fun little trinkets are perfect.

For a woman’s stocking, check out the beauty aisle. It’s full of makeup, nail items, hair products, and nice-smelling lotions—all for $1 each. For kids, check out the book and toy aisles. You can get kids’ books, stuffed animals, bath toys, and dress-up clothes. For men, there’s the electronics aisle. Get everything they need for their next project or something that will make their job easier.

You can also get presents at the dollar store. In particular, kids don’t know and won’t care where you got their presents! You can get them a whole slew of presents for the same price of one gift from Toys R Us. Make a gift basket with gourmet food items (yes, I have bought gourmet food at the dollar store). If you get one “large” gift for each person in your family—something expensive or that they really want—fill out the rest of the Christmas tree with gifts from the dollar store.

My personal favorite dollar store is $.99 Only. They are pretty awesome and often have name brand items for only $.99. If you have one of those in your area, definitely check them out.
