When my kids were younger , we used to use the dollar store as a reward if they were good or earned something. We could tell them they could go in there and get any toy they liked. They felt like a hero, because they had a wide variety to choose from, and we felt like heros because hey didnt come back with $400 video games. And after a week ,when they got bored with it and stopped playing with it, we didnt feel that bad either.

The things I buy most often are greeting cards. They're 2/$1 and are just as nice as the more costly ones in other stores. Always have a supply of "congratulations," "happy birthday" or "sympathy" cards on hand.

This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!

We, the women in my family, go there at Christmas to do stocking stuffer's. Since we, the adults, do a white elephant, we all fill the kiddos stockings. And believe me, they are STUFFED, lol!! The kids LOVE it!! We get stuff like girlish pens for the older ones, playing cards for the older boys, and age based stuff for the younger ones. It's so much more fun watching them all dig in than playing our game, lol
