I'm all for a deal, but sometimes I think the "dollar stores" have a lot of junk...until I discovered the Dollar Tree. Ummmm....I'm in love! I found some great stuff for Ethan (cool coloring books, foam stickers, craft stuff), some large sturdy plastic zip bags for storing outgrown kids clothing (neatly) and the great square Libbey flower vases pictured above (I'm thinking of pairing them with the green "Astro Balls" from the CB2 website http://www.cb2.com/) all for...you guessed it...a DOLLAR! Now, admittedly they do have some "junk" like the silk flower adorned fly swatter (WHAT?!), but I'm no longer a Dollar Tree snob.
