Today I am thankful for having an amazing 'free-standing' Dollar Tree in our town. We have always had a Dollar Tree in Westminster, but it use to be located in the mall, and never had a large food section or freezers. A few years ago it moved into a strip mall, and it's been the best thing ever! It's larger, so it can carry a better variety of items, and it has cold cases and freezers. The Dollar Tree is my first stop for a LOT of items, and sets the standard for my deal shopping. I know what I can get there for a $1, so when couponing, I know if the Dollar Tree sells it, it needs to cost less than a $1 for it to be a good bargain. They also carry newspapers on Saturday mornings, so instead of paying $2.50 each, I get them for a $1. I love that the Dollar Tree carries everyday items, like allergy medicine, as well as fun splurges, like decor and craft supplies. They can be a one-stop-shop most of the time, which with my busy schedule, I am very thankful for.
