    Prepping at Dollar Tree

    Was in Dollar Tree earlier today and wanted to give a heads-up on some good deals. Don't know if all the stores have this stuff but figured it's worth shouting out just in case.

    I picked up 5 hour emergency candles in the tall glass holders, MRE heaters ( the small metal circular tins), 2 pound bags of AP flour were 4 for $1.

    Hope it helps someone else out there.

    Dollar Tree does have some great prep items. I bought plastic sheeting there for a $1 a pack to cover my windows and sliding glass door this winter (conserves heat). Those usually go for $5+ at the Home Depot/Lowes. They also have little mini bungee cords 6 for a $1. IMO - you can never have a enough bungee cords. Love them! I also love the little Tortillas that dollar tree sells. They accept manufacturer coupons at my local store so that's a bonus too!

    Heads up though - Their $1 first aid and medicine supplies are sold for .88 cents per item at most Walmart stores. I know because I have a whole case of that stuff and use it all the time.

    Yes! I've actually traveled through China and Tibet and I will tell you the same thing - don't eat the food! There's zero regulation over there and inspection of goods coming into the US doesn't do a good job testing for chemical pollutants unless someone gets sick.

    I also avoid MSG laden foods as well. Unfortunately most of the foods at Dollar Tree contain MSG.

    Dollar Tree has the best deal on batteries that I have found. 8 AA or 8 AAA for $1. I have tested them and they work great.

    Dollar Tree also has Soy Milk for $1. I usually go there once a month and stock up on a few things.

    My fiancées sister works at dollar tree, and informed me that they are going to start carrying seeds 4 packs per dollar. It'll be interesting to see if they're heirloom or not. The dollar tree is kinda far from me, so it's not real practical to stop by there. If they were about 10 miles closer, or on the route I travel most, I would stop there. Maybe I should make a special trip just to see what's up?
