“Potato peelers. You can’t sharpen the blades so you have to replace the whole thing periodically anyway. Might as well get inexpensive ones.”

“I couldn’t believe it when in the ‘dish aisle’ I saw squarish, white dishes, just like Crate & Barrel. No one would believe I paid a dollar each, at the time, for them. I got six.”


Cotton Kitchen Towels

“Measuring cups. Test using something reasonably accurate, but then buy a dozen sets.”

They also mentioned, “You can leave them in containers. I keep a one cup measure in the flour, sugar, and rice. Half cup in oatmeal and barley and lentils, because those are the quantities I use.”


Foil Pans

“I told my wife just yesterday that every time she goes to the dollar store, that she has to pick up a few foil pans no matter what. We’ll never have too many.”


Seasonal Plates

“I really like the Dollar Store for fun seasonal plates.”


This is an excellent idea because you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a plate you use once a year.

Plus, if you take a dish to a holiday gathering, you might not get it back, so getting a cute $1.25 plate beats buying one for $10 or more.

Kitchen Cleaning Supplies

Other cleaning supplies mentioned to grab at the Dollar Tree included sponges, green scrubbers, kitchen rags, and Mr. Clean magic erasers.
