So, it’s no surprise that I absolutely love the Dollar Tree!
After becoming a children’s event planner I have found a new appreciation for all that this dollar store has to offer! This appreciation has quickly grown and now overflowed into all other avenues of my life. Home cleaning and organization, car upkeep, hygiene routine, crafting, and decor; you name it and I can find a product from Dollar Tree to use for it.
So, I walked into Dollar Tree looking only for some items to use in my upcoming DIY video. I, of course, found those items…as well as about 30 other things that were not on the list! Therefore, I’ll definitely be doing a Dollar Tree Shopping Haul in the near future, which I will link (here) once posted. So, on to the reason why you actually clicked on this post, to see my Dollar Tree (Pick of the Week)!
Ta da, here it is guys! I, well actually my mother, stumbled upon these super cute Doc McStuffins faux mason jars this week! They were so adorable (picture is not doing them justice by the way) with their light blue lids and their chunky striped fuchsia pink straws.
Now, at first I was inclined to pass these babies up, because I have a lot….I MEAN A LOT!!….of drinkware already and trust me when I tell you it is particularly hard to store. That is because when I purchase drinkware as party supplies; I have to buy not one, not four…but around 12 of each!
Did I mention drinkware is hard to store?
(The next paragraph should be read fast, like the voice you hear on TV reading off fine print or medicine side effects. 1,2,3..Go!)
First of all they don’t stack properly, the round glasses don’t fit snug in square storage containers, you have to wash all glasses and let dry completely (or you’ll get mold) before storing…Do you know how hard it is to leave out 12 glasses to dry on the counter for a day with a 3 year old running around?…You need to wrap each glass individually or include filler in between each so they don’t bump together and break, the straws have to be removed because they either make the cup too tall for the storage lid to fit on top or just make the glasses that much more “unstackable.” New word.
However, in spite of all that, my mother reminded me that a couple months back I spoke of creating a Doc McStuffins party theme for my business. She also reminded me of how cute they would look on the table and in all the little girl’s hands during photo ops. Also, of how she’d never seen any character cups like this particular one before and how I would probably never find them again…..Yes, you see why I have to limit the shopping trips I take with my mother!
Well, she won the war and swayed my vote. In all, I walked away with 8 plastic Doc Mcstuffins cups for the new party theme and am now on the hunt for 4 more to complete the set. So, there you have it, my pick of the week!
Let me know what your guys favorite steal from Dollar Tree is and if you find 4 more cups! lol
Until next time,
