My finds this Thursday

I had the opportunity to visit Dollar Tree today. OH MY!!

I know that sometimes I go to the dollar stores and find a bunch of nothing but today..woohoo!!
I would want my girlfriend to share some great deals with me here you go, girlfriend!

Water noodles- perfect for the pool season that will be here before you know it.

Garden items- gloves, spades stakes, name it!

Pots- I was really impressed with wire hanging baskets and coconut liners. (These can be so expensive at garden shops!)

Lanterns- They have the cutest paper lanterns for the patio.

Lunchables- I found a wide selection of lunchables in the fridge section.

Kids shovels and rakes- I don't know about your kidlets but mine always want to "help". We always have a hard time finding these...especially in the fall.

Outdoor eating wear- A wide variety of plates, cups, and these adorable ice cream bowels.

They have water in them so you can keep them in the freezer and they keep the ice cream cold.

Wouldn't it be cute to have a ice cream social for a kids birthday party? Then each guest could take one of these home with them?

I also spied these great large popcorn containers.

While we have these at home already, my warped mind instantly thought of Christmas. Coaches, teachers, friends, neighbors and hairdressers. All those people that you always wonder what to get. Put a large box of microwave popcorn, some boxes of candy, a gift certificate to Blockbuster or other video stores, a couple of coffee mugs, homemade tea or cocoa and homemade cookies.

Very cost effective!

Oh look! A bag of friendship bread must have really nice friends!

Love the popcorn bucket - might need a couple for VBS.
