Dollar Madness on 12 & S



It was coming and long overdue, I had to let go of my blue dustpan.   It was abused over the years ,walked on, sat on,  its been a part of my household for over four years now.(wiping a slow tear)

But I had to let Betsy go.. (yes it has a name!)

I have a weakness for dollar stores.  I walk up every aisle looking for that one thing I didn’t know I couldn’t  live without.   In some circles, I could be called a collector.  In others, an impulsive shopper.  I prefer a connoisseur of great values .

I like dollar stores, you don’t have to walk miles for a can opener, the stores on average are cleaner than any K or Wal Mart and people actually know where things are.

Not hung up on labels.  I could care less if my giant fork was made by Cuisinart or Kitchen Aid.  I simply want to turn my meat. (smile)

The only small wee problem I have is focus.   Who knew you needed a leveler, candles, pens, gas carburetor cleaner ( one day I will actually put it in my car) air freshers and other must haves.

One day I went to the 99 cents store or Northgate for 2 packs AAA batteries, I spent $ 27.47 I forgot the batteries but I have three nice pairs of reading glasses.(somewhere)

My favorite store is the Dollar Tree on 12th and S.   Parking is easy and its in and out.  They have a security guard there at night, is shoplifting a problem?  “Look he has a foil turkey pan in his pants-get um”

Today I was good… not only did I get a new dustpan, some Christmas candles I had to have, Fiddle Faddle  AND  a new dish brush.   Total 8.51.
