Affordable Stores to Shop At (Des Blog-a-thon #10)

I tried to think of stores that everyone has in their local area. Maybe some of you will see stores you never heard of before. I’m always trying to shop on a budget. I thought it would be good to share affordable stores that everyone can shop at. 

Dollar Tree – I know the United States have a lot of different locations for this store. I’m not sure if they have this store out of the country. If you don’t live in the United States and have a Dollar Tree store let me know. Everything out of Dollar Tree is a dollar. No, I’m not lying to you. Literally, everything out of that store is for a dollar. If it’s not a dollar then it will probably be 50(poster boards) or 89 (some candy bars) cents. You can find real brands of items there. Even if you get something off brand it’s still decent. Well, from my experience. Dollar Tree sales food, arts and crafts, hygiene products for men and women plus much more. It’s one of my favorite stores to shop at.

Wal-Mart – There are plenty of Walmarts around the world. It’s one of the most popular stores that most people know of. Wal-Mart has anything you can think of. I think it’s the best store to go grocery shopping. If you are looking for a certain electronic for a decent price Wal-Mart is a good place to look. I know there are different types of Wal-Marts stores. I shop here a lot so, I’m familiar with most of the things they sell.


Local Beauty Supply Store – I know there are some beauty supply stores that have crazy prices. If you search around your town or the next town over you should be able to find one that has good prices for items you’re interested in buying. The local beauty supply stores I shop in usually have makeup, wigs, hair extensions, hair products (spray, gel, shampoo, conditioner). The list can go on and on. Basically, they sell beauty products. Try finding one that sells stuff in your price range. They have awesome lipsticks!

Last but not least… 

Ollie’s – This is the perfect store to buy cute journals from if you are a writer. The items that are sold in this store is books, household items, toys, etc. They even give you good coupons especially if you have a membership with them. The membership is free when you sign up. Every time you go to this store you can use your Ollie’s card to earn points. So, the cheap items that you buy out the store turn out to be a lower price than you expect it. Basically, a Ollie’s card suppose to give you a discount every time you buy something. They are still expanding Ollie’s store locations, so if you don’t have one now. Then you will sooner or later.

I’m hoping everyone found this list of stores helpful. There aren’t many people who take the time to help others out when it comes to shopping. On the other hand, share this post with your friends and family if you feel like this will be useful for them.
