With 3 Little Ladies, we go thru bows like crazy.

So we love this thrifty find at Walmart…$1 Grosgrain bows.

For now, we use them with our handmade bands (see HERE), but soon the ladies will be sporting some locks and we’ll use them to keep their hair out of their eyes. Too cute.

Can’t beat this for a $1!

Holler!!

We are constantly making little ‘to-do’ notes in our phone that inevitably get lost and forgotten about.

Hollar Dollar: Night Light

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

This waking up in the night business with a baby is a whole new ball game for me.

Turn on a lamp and Jane is bright-eyed and bushy tailed…for hours!

Enter…the night light!

boxwood clippings_holler dollar night light

 THIS dollar night light gives us just the amount of light in the nursery to help me avoid injury when I’m walking around like a zombie, and keeps Janey in sleepy mode.

It has the Good Housekeeping seal of approval and mine too!

Hallelujah for The Dollar Tree!

Holler Dollar: Fairy Wings

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

I was undecided on the girls’ Halloween costumes this year, but knew I wanted something easy and adorable.

The Dollar Tree came to my rescue again with these fairy wings (link HERE). Matched with clothes they already had: a onesie, cardigan, tutu, leggings and ballet shoes…Elizabeth transformed into one pretty cute fairy!

I think the only thing cuter will be when we double the fun on the actual night. Hannah was asleep for the dress rehearsal!

Holler Dollar: Googly about Googly Eyes!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

There’s something about these little things that make me giddy.

I don’t know what it is, but they are so simple and funny it’s genius.

I thought I’d be fun to dot them around my house for Halloween and bring a little life to everyday objects.

Here’s how it turned out:

Holler Dollar: 4 Baby Items You Should be Buying!

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

There are sooooo many great baby items on the market these days that it’s hard not to get carried away.

These 4 items from the Dollar Tree, (although not all are specifically made for baby) have not only been a relief on the wallet, but have been some of the most used items in our homes this year.

.

1. Mini Tubs are sooo freaking handy dandy!

We’ve used them to store binkies, formula, and now rice cereal. They’re 10 for $1…

Holler!!!

2. Plastic Bin, these have been so great for lots of things, but primarily carrying dirty bottles to and fro, upstairs to down.

In the early days we also kept one in the shower with oxyclean in, whenever the girls had a blowout we’d just pop dirty clothing item in their to soak until the next wash. Worked wonders and very proud to report we have very little stained items. :)

3. Diaper Bags (see HERE) we opted for these instead of a diaper genie type because we have “diaper changing stations” all over the house. Simply pop the diaper in and tie it up. They actually work pretty well for holding in the stench!

4. Mesh Wastebaskets (see HERE) these are perfect for holding all those bagged diapers, and easy to empty every day or so.

So there you have it! Our very thrifty and handy baby finds.

If you have anymore, please do share!

Holler Dollar: Staples Notebooks

I was checking out at Staples the other day when I spied these adorable 2-pack of notebooks for $1.

Aren’t they just the sweetest?!

They have many designs and we thought they’d be the perfect little notebook to keep lists in your purse or to give as a gift.

Love cute and little unexpected finds!

Holler Dollar: Lifesaver Tub Scrub

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

My least favorite household task is hands down scrubbing the tub, talk about manual labor! I absolutely despised this task, until my friend, Nicki introduced me to this fab Pinterest find:

Lifesaver Tub Scrub

boxwood clippings_holler dollar tub scrub

You Will Need:

One scrubber from the Dollar Tree

1:1 ratio of Dawn and white vinegar

Simply wet down the shower and tub down and gently scrub this mixture into the tub. Next, let soak for a few minutes and then rinse away.

It is seriously insane how easy and how great this works! I absolutely love having a sparkling tub greet me at the end of each day!

Thanks for the tip Nicki! If anyone else hates scrubbing your tub…you have to give this a try!!!

Hollar Dollar: Country Dishes

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Last time I visited The Dollar Tree, I spied these dishes that I just couldn’t pass up. They screamed summer to me, just like the kind you’d find in an old country farmhouse and I just had to have them.

Aren’t they just perfect?! Pass the corn and watermelon, summer’s here and I’m ready!

Holler Dollar: Pumice Sponge

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

One of the bad things about summer is flip flop feet.

(Yuck)

You know what I’m talking about!

.

………..

To help your pedi last a little longer,

make sure to pick up one of these pumice sponges on your next visit to the Dollar Tree.

Holler Dollar: Ribbon at Target

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

This cute ribbon is in the dollar spot section at Target right now.

You only get a total of 2 yards, but it’s perfect for wrapping a tiny gift. We just used a sheet of regular white paper, and added a little ribbon.

Black and white always makes for a clean, classy look.

Not bad for a buck!

Holler Dollar: Modern Note Cards at Target

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I saw blossoms this weekend and I couldn’t be happier spring is officially here!

Another thing to brighten my day are these lovely geometric coral note cards from the Dollar Spot at Target.

Holler Dollar: Beatrix Potter Colouring Books and Jigsaw

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

We love Beatrix Potter throughout the year, but especially at Easter.

Now at Targets Dollar Spot you can find all kinds of goodies with her beautiful illustrations, any of which would be ideal to add to an Easter basket.

At this price, why not add a few?!

Holler Dollar: Cellophane

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

This post is a little random, but too handy not to share…

I just HATE spending money on things I don’t want to spend money on! Cellophane, tin foil, toilet paper all fall into this category, but at the same time, I am willing to spend the extra amount to get the quality, coz let’s face it thin TP is not fun. :)

Anyhow, I’m proud to say I’ve found the best of both worlds with this cellophane from The Dollar Tree. Not only is it only $1, but it actually works, and sticks and everything!!!

.

 So be sure to add this to your dollar store shopping list, you’ll love me for it…pinky promise!
