23 Dollar Tree Hacks to Help Upgrade Your Home

by Simplify

Here are some great Dollar Tree hacks you can use to enhance used items you got from the thrift store or to have fun with some DIY projects. Getting used furniture and homeware is a great way to save money. It’s so much fun to upscale thrifted items, especially when you can do it at barely any cost with Dollar Tree items.

For a quick and easy DIY project, take a thrifted glass vase and some artificial flowers. Pick up a few bottles of resin at the Dollar tree and fill the vase with the resin so it looks like water. Pop in the flowers, leave it overnight to dry and you have some gorgeous new home décor.

DIY customize a wooden cutting board from Dollar Tree with their wood-burning tools. Here’s a great hack to help you get your illustration just right. Print up the design you want to burn onto the board. Draw over the back side of the print with pencil and then put the paper on the board right side up, where you want to create the design.

Trace the design from the right side of the paper and it will cause the pencil from the back of the page to trace your design onto the board. This will make it easier for you to burn the perfect design onto your customized cutting board.

    I shop several different Dollar Stores because I find different treasures. One consistent thing I do find at every store though is, there are stacks of unpacked boxes in most aisles and messy and empty shelves.

      I worked at a dollar store and the customers threw stuff all over the shelves and floor, they also let their children trash the place.

      The manager and I had any discussions about it and there isnt always someone available to clean up when they’re busy stocking shelves, helping customers and the cashiers are so busy they don’t even get a break. your first reaction is hire more staff! that is easier said than done. there is an a lot of high margin profit in a lot of these small stores. I guess we need to be a little bit more understanding, versus placing blame. those jobs are very low paying, there is never enough people applying to keep up with the turnover.

      The other thing I had to deal with was the employee bathroom was also a customer bathroom

      but customers never returned the key!!!

      when I had to go to the bathroom, there was no key to be found, and the manager wasn’t necessarily on site to give me a key you would think the solution would be all the employees have their own key, but now that makes too much sense.
