What to buy at Dollar Tree in the Fall Months

The Dollar Tree is my new favorite places to shop – especially since they now accept manufacturer’s coupons! There are so many things that you can stock up there every season, so here are the top things that you should be purchasing during the Fall Months at Dollar Tree.
1.) Fall Floral: I absolutely LOVE buying my fall flowers at Dollar Tree – I usually get a few different colors and rip the flowers off the stems, then re-arrange them and combine a few different colors to make an even prettier arrangement.
I purchased yellow and orange sunflowers last week, ripped them apart and then hot glued them back together like this. I mixed the colors and wrapped a foam wreath circle with ribbon. This cost me only $3.00 to make!
2.) Halloween Decorations: They have such a great selection of everything you need to decorate your home and yard for halloween. Make sure that you shop early, because often times popular items can sell out quickly!
3.) Halloween Candy: You can now use Manufacturer coupons here (see coupon policy here). Since all of the bags are only $1.00 and they carry many name brands, you can get a GREAT deal on Candy.
4.) Glow Sticks/Bracelets: Glow bracelets are not just sold during Halloween, often times they are sold at children’s events and concerts, as well as other summer fairs and activities. The problem is that they are SO expensive when you buy them at those types of events. By stocking up on them now, you don’t have to spend SO much money on them later. You can stick them in the freezer to make them last longer, then put them in your purse on the way to the event. These are not usually in the store during the summer months (when my kids always want them), so buying them now makes you feel like a ‘super parent’ later
5.) Face Painting Kits: My kids LOVE to get their faces painted, especially during their birthday parties. I usually get a couple of face painting kids for $1.00 this time of year ,and set them aside until their birthday parties in the summer.
6.) Soup: This is the time of year where Dollar Tree has a big supply of soups and stews that sell the best during the Fall months. Coupons for these items come out during the fall months, which means you can save even more!
7.) Flashlights: We love to give our kids flashlights in their Christmas stockings, and Dollar Tree has some fun Character ones for only $1.00! These are also great additions to add to your Operation Christmas Child Shoebox (if you participate).
Those are the top things that I look for during the Fall Months at Dollar Tree, is there anything that you find there that I should add to this list?
