Cute (and trendy, even!) paper goods for parties?
Fabulous stocking stuffers for the kiddos?
Cold medicine, toothpaste, aluminum foil, or dishtowels?
They've got 'em.
Million dollar candy bars for our "Million Dollar Providers" attending a Bootcamp at work?
(And, for all of these items for a dollar, no less.)
Every time I start a creative project for any type of event, whether it's for work, for home, or for a friend, I pop on over to the dollar store and just cruise on through each aisle.
Last week I got square paper plates. Totally designer looking, and, at 10 in the package for a buck, the price was right. I can't wait to use them.
In the case of the candy bars, I was wandering through on my lunch break and spotted them. Since one of the point we teach our members is how to become a "Million Dollar Provider" they were just too perfect to pass up. I took a picture of one with my phone and headed back to work.
I then shared the photo with a coworker and we came up with a use for these perfect candies.
I ran back over a few days later and bought up the amount we needed, and then I created little little printed strips to cover the brand name marketing already on the candy wrapper. I printed them, cut them out, and added them to our candy bars for a custom look.
This idea would work for any kind of event; a birthday party, a congrats present, a just-because-you're-so-special gift.
Do you shop your local dollar store? I'd love to read about your finds!
