Dollar Tree (Haul) July 2016 || OREOS

Don't you love to stop in at Dollar Tree & find unexpected goodies?!
Yeaaa! Gotta love when that happens!

As I say in the video below, I was pretty flabbergasted to see the hundreds thousands of vloggers
who seem to exclusively film Dollar Tree hauls.
See there, I've even picked me up some correct term, like 'haul' ;)
Apparently saying 'shopping trip' or 'grocery run' or 'stopped in at the store' just isn't sufficient.
Who knew?!

I stumbled across the Dollar Tree vloggers by accident the other day when I was looking up
some freezer meals ideas.
Well, those videos seemed to link up to tons of Costco shopping 'hauls' & before you know it,
there were all sorts of 'haul' videos popping up.
And that, my dear friends, is how I became enlightened about all this Dollar Tree insider information.
Ha ... the whole thing kinda makes me giggle.

I've been shopping the Dollar Tree forever & I do get pretty excited about the deals & fun finds
I come across ... not just there, but anywhere really.
Any deal I find, I am always happy about!
The more money I can save on the daily needs & necessity items (like food & fuel),
the more money I have for the fun stuff in life ... like travel (we just went to Italy, ya know!).
And honestly, whether you have plenty of funds or just a little, God expects us
to be good stewards with our money.
If we spend everything we have, how can we help those in need or financially support
our local church or missions work?
I've always been inspired to share tips & tricks with my friends on ways to stretch their dollars.
I even hosted a couponing/savings seminar a few years back.
Anyone remember that?

Now, this isn't the first time I have filmed little videos like this one, but it's been a good long time.
In fact, if you've been to Call Her Blessed lately, you'll see that ALL the blog posts
are pretty few & far between.
That's life, folks.
Seasons of life.
I've just not been able to get on here & share much at all.
(And I have SO much to catch you up on ... I really, really do!)

I'm thinking that I want to show you a few of the good deals I've gotten lately!
Several of the ladies at church were chatting about deals the past Sunday, so this is a quick way
to share with them all my Dollar Tree shenanigans.

Hope you enjoy & are inspired to see what deals you can find!

And one last thing, here are the shopping grab bags I referenced.
I saw these on the shelf at Rural King on Tuesday for $14.99 ...
the very same box that the Dollar Tree has for $1, of course.

Side note:  The Wet & Wild Fergie concealer ... ummm ... I didn't love it.
I'm going to give it one more try, but I'm thinking it's not a keeper.
The lipstick, however, is cute.
Good color & good staying power!

Talk to you later, my friends!

Who doesn't love a good party?!

  1. You certainly have an eye for a bargain, I really admire that! I only wish you could tell me some of the English deals!
