May we all raise Dollar Tree children.
I think that statement alone is gonna garner a plethora of reactions, which will probably run the gamut of “Heck yes!” to “Uh, heck no.”
Still, I’m gonna lead with it ’cause it’s a bit brazen, just like spending a dollar on something when you could spend $4 on the same dang thing elsewhere.
You rebel, you.
And may you be raising little kind, budget-conscious hellions who, like you, see the value (see what I did there) in being financially prudent and less name-brand obsessed.
I’d be lying if I said that I don’t shop other places like the holy land known as Target or Publix, where shopping is a pleasure. Still, when I’m not paying out my biscuit for gluten-free, vegan cookies, my favorite peanut butter protein bites, my high-waisted leggings or vintage-style graphic tees, I’m taking my arse along with my three extra appendages to dollar heaven when we can spend a little more liberally and feel a little less bad about it.
While I’m not the biggest fan of DT toilet paper, I do enjoy not having to spend upwards of $6 on a greeting card, water bottle, solid color t-shirt, coloring book, birthday balloons, or even plate and drinkware.
Listen, I ain’t fancy.
