I used to avoid dollar stores like Dollar Tree, believing the items sold will be cheap and will break quickly. But the other day, I needed a mug, so I walked into a local Dollar Tree to get one. As expected, the item was just 1 dollar.
The mug is pretty well-made, and I’m actually quite happy with my purchase. I’m sure not everything you buy at dollar stores will be quality items, but in this case, I got something decent, which easily would have cost 2 or 3 times more money anywhere else.
I still wouldn’t make a habit of shopping only at dollar stores, but it seems that if you are careful about what you buy, you can sometimes get an item that is of pretty good quality, for just a dollar. For this reason, I plan to make more frequent trips to the local Dollar Tree in the future.
