The dollar store often gets a bad reputation for having low quality items and not being of a certain standard. However, I love the dollar store. I prefer the Dollar Tree to other similar stores. I do not do all of my shopping at the Dollar Tree and there are certain items that I would not buy from them, but there are those items that when needed, I always run to the Dollar Tree first.
On my latest trip the store with my girls, we went there specifically looking for craft paint to paint our Halloween pumpkins. They are 8 and 3 and we do not carve our pumpkins, we paint them; for now.
