Name Brand Bread

This is one of my best kept secrets. Many locations in my area sell name-brand bread. I am talking all sorts of bread you’d find at Walmart for $3.00+ a loaf, can be found at Dollar Tree for $1.25. That includes English Muffins, Bagels and even specialty bread.

Pro tip: You can stock up and freeze loaves of bread and thaw as needed.

Windex Multi-Surface Disinfectant Cleaner

One of my favorite things to buy at Dollar Tree is cleaners, especially name-brand cleaning supplies.

Take this Windex Multi-Surface Disinfectant Cleaner for example. This 26 oz refill bottle is $1.25. A similar size at Walmart is $4.17 a bottle!
