The Dollar Tree in West Branch

MB hadn't been out of the house for a few days so we went for a ride over to West Branch.
The Dollar Tree isn't my favorite dollar store, it is too antiseptic and too ordered for my taste, I like rooting around looking for bargains, but they had some pretty good deals today.

They had the perfect drink coasters!!!
Gleem is my favorite toothpaste. It doesn't have any of those extras, like peroxide, and whiteners, and baking soda, and mouth wash, that all the name brands have, it just gets your teeth clean and leaves you with fresh breath, and what more do you need?
Oh man, 75% off of xmas candy!!!
I got four bags of chocolate bells and four bags of peanut butter cups.

MB picked up some stuff too, but this isn't the MB, Jonnie, and Boz's 99 Cent Blog, is it?

Well worth the 80 mile round trip, and a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Does it mean by shopping at the Dollar Tree that you're selling out on the 99 cent blog?? CONFESS!!!

The 99 Cent Blog celebrates all $1.00 and all 99 cent stores of all stripes.

Cali has a fair sprinkling of fake 99 cent and 98 cent stores too, but they are scams. They use that title; but when you go in, everything is regular price. They're usually independent establishments and I've learned to avoid them.

Like "Dollar General" in Indiana was not a true dollar store. I don't think they had anything in there that cost a dollar.

But Dollar Tree is a whole different story! I remember going to Dollar Tree in Indiana and they are fully endorsed by the 99 Cent Blog since everything in there costs a dollar or less.

We should link The Dollar Tree. There is also a stigma attatched to shopping at the faux dollar stores like the Dollar General or the Family Dollar. If you shop at the 99 cent store or the dollar store it's ok because it is kind of kooky, but the Dollar General and Family Dollar are considered white trashy.
