Dollar stores vary in what they sell, but the general stock is basically the same. Here are 10 quick fixes that you can do with dollar store items.
1- Hide/coat a screw/nail
Before the screw rusts, put a coat of nail polish on it. That will seal it from the weather. You can match the color by using a colored nail polish.
2- Label things
Using colored nail polish is a good way to mark keys so that you don’t have to fumble through them. Dollar stores also carry a good supply of stick on labels.
3- Keep screws from coming loose
When you have a screw that keeps coming loose. Putting a little clear nail polish on the threads will help lock the screw in place.
4- Get organized
Most dollar stores carry wire or plastic baskets. These baskets are great for organizing your kitchen cabinets, drawers, etc.
5- General repairs
I wouldn’t buy them for frequent use, if you’re doing something and it’s a one time thing, a screwdriver, spackle knife, etc from the dollar store will get you through.
6- Automotive supplies
I won’t deny that I bought a quart of oil from a dollar store once or twice in my time. Even more so, I have bought automotive cleaning supplies from the dollar stores. Why not? They do the job and the prices are less than in a auto supply store.
7- General house cleaning
Cleaning supplies at the supermarket are getting expensive. Most dollar stores carry brand names for less, if you don’t mind the off brands, you can save a lot more.
People like to decorate according to the season or holiday. Dollar stores carry a good selection of little things to help bring the spirit of the season or holiday into your home at a discounted price.
9- Having a party?
Party decorations can get expensive at party supply stores. Dollar stores carry a wide variety of party supplies at a much lower price.
10- School supplies
For general supplies like books, pencils, etc., dollar stores carry a good range of items at discount prices.
