Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘candy

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday!

Recently, I read an article that had suggestions on the products that you should and should not buy at your local Dollar Stores.  I agreed that buying party supplies and paper products was a good idea and with not buying toys which may contain high levels of lead.  Purchasing cleaning supplies saves money, but I only buy name brands because some of the others are watered down which makes them a waste of money.

The only statement in the article that I did not agree with was that food items should never be purchased.  Granted there are some items in a Dollar/99 Cents store that shouldn’t be purchased because of it’s obvious non-compliance with FDA’s regulations, however, there are a lot of products that I would and have bought at Dollar Tree stores.

The state of the economy has forced us all to be more frugal but my sons are trying to eat me out of house and home!  They are always snacking and can easily polish off a large bag of chips in one sitting…wonder where they got that from (lol).  Therefore, I am always on the hunt, usually with coupons in hand, in search of snacks that they will eat and be satisfied without breaking the bank.

That’s where Dollar Tree comes in, and it has always been my “go to” store for snacks, even when the boys were small, it was the place to stop before going to the movies.   Not all products are sold in all stores and I was surprised with what I found in their freezer section, taking note that packaging was clearly marked Made in the USA, (The Bronx, NY, Altoona, PA, Pennsauken, NJ and Rancho Cucamonga, CA).   There are many name brand products made specifically for non-grocery type stores as evidenced by their sizes, however, the quality remains the same and manufacturer’s coupons are accepted.

Hello friends and Happy Hump Day and Halloween Wednesday.  

I am finally back to work after being off since last Thursday and it’s all good in the neighborhood!  This denim riveted skirt has been hanging in my closet for almost a year, hubby gave it to me and I love the big side pockets.  I was in search of a pair of booties from Goodwill but found these at Rugged Wearhouse for $10.00 (woohoo).  I am not overly impressed with the pairing of the shirt, so my next search will be of a plaid to give the outfit a more country look, right now it’s a little Gypsy!
