I Did All My Kids Back To School Shopping In One Go At An Online Dollar Store

In Short: Most of us already love dollar stores so Dollar Tree online is already a smash hit. If you haven’t checked it out yet then what are you waiting for?

Back-to-school time is bittersweet. On the one side, the insanity of summer is ending and returning to logical schedules, early bedtimes, and the perfect, life-changing organization that is a new planner. But on the other is the dreaded school supply shopping. The ridiculously long list, the bulk buys — why do I need 20 packs of black dry-erase markers and how the heck am I supposed to find that when 20 other moms are looking for the same thing? — and the impulse fruit snacks you buy just to keep your kids quiet. All the time spent going from store to store trying to cross off everything on the list, and the money. ALL the money.

But this year, I learned the secret: That’s right. The shopping Mecca for parents everywhere has a website. Same great prices, but you get to browse, buy and destroy that back-to-school shopping list from the comfort of your own home and in your pajamas if you so choose (although I don’t know why you wouldn’t.)

Dollar Tree makes it easy with a dedicated back-to-school section, and the navigation lists on the left side let you quickly find everything you need. It’s designed for bulk buyers, so those 25 spiral bound one-subject notebooks you need are no problem, and the prices are so awesome, you won’t even mind having to supply tissues for the entire class. They even offer free — yes free — site to store shipping if you want to save even more money.

Best part: I was able to find everything on my 4th-grader’s list, pick up cute decorations and party favors for the Halloween bash we’re planning and grab a new set of wine glasses all after bedtime with no children around to ask why I need more wine glasses or complain that they want a different shade of red for their three-ring binder. Score!
