Dollar Store Haul


The other day, I mentioned in this post that I found the satin hair tie/scarf that adorned my retro swoop and French twist updo at my local Dollar Tree and I wanted to go back for the other color. I don’t know if you know this about me … but I love a deal and a steal ;)! So, of course I had to check out what else they had to offer along the line of affordable hair accessories!

Well, I found the above satin flower headbands and hair clips and had to get them. I saw the grey flowers first.

Although I’m not a fan of this type of metal clip (a strand inevitably gets caught and snagged/torn in the removal process), I figured that I could remove the clip and attach the flowers (which are backed by felt) to a different kind of clip or a headband. I could also attach a hair elastic and a pin like I demonstrated here. So, definitely worth a dollar. I was doubley psyched when I saw that they had the brown and pink flowers already attached to headbands!

Next, I picked up bendie satin hair ties/scarfs in solid black and in a white/black/brown leoparard (I passed on the B&W zebra print) and scooped up this cute, brown plaid bow headband!

Oh yeah! Watch out now Minnie Mouse!

Oh! And one last thing! I hate getting plastic bags in stores and have many reusable totes/bags to avoid this. However, unless I’m hitting the grocery store for a major trip, I inevitably forget them in the car! Well, I found the cutest little stow away totes that I can just throw in my purse, so that I’ll always have a bag on me for those quick shopping expeditions!

Cool, right? They  had this other really cute one that looked like a watermelon. But, they only had two left and they both were damaged. The clerk said they should be getting another shipment soon though. However, now that I think about it … do I really want to be pulling a watermelon out of my purse? Ahhhhhh hell nah …! Well … maybe. LOL!

Anyway, not a bad haul for $8.56, right?! I’m definitely going to be hitting the dollar stores to check out their hair accessory offering more often!


Have you been to the dollar store lately? What finds have you scored?

  1. Hey Shelli, Great finds!! I actually have one of those totes in the shape of a strawberry (D Tree). I keep it in my purse too. I love that flower shaped one that you have though. I will have to keep an eye out for that one. I came across those micro fiber hair turbins that you twist in the front and pull it and button it in the back in my local D Tree Store for a dollar. I only bought one but when I went back to get more they were sold out. So I am eagerly awaiting those to come back in stock.


    • Ooooh, a strawberry? How cute!! I’ll definitely have to check back in a couple of weeks to see if they get more! That’s great on the turban things as they cost about $8 or so at Harmon’s! I’ll have to look for those too!


  2. These are fab finds!!! My dollar stores don’t have a lot of the great stuff I see others posting about. I will have to start checking out stores outside of my area. Thanks Shelli!


    • I was surprised too Lavendar!! I was like, “Yeah, I gotta check this spot out a little more often!” Just like, I need to check out the little Goodwill by me every now and again too!!
