The wide variety you can find at the bargain dollar stores may be a treasure hunt or a total waste of your money. When it comes to choosing those items that are worth a quick trip to the store; experience is a good teacher. You could also ask your friends who shop at dollar stores what they have found to be of value. Pinterest and blogs often have dollar store ideas that will save you time and money also. 

Crafters Control Yourselves

To have a list when you arrive at the store can help cut down on the possible sticker shock when you check out and realize you put more than you intended in your cart. If you are making a craft project have the complete list of materials needed with the items you want to purchase from the dollar store highlighted in some way. This way if you run across something that isnít highlighted, but the store happens to carry, you can grab it and save yourself an extra trip later. Items like glue sticks, poster board, markers, glitter, foam wreaths, silk flowers, and ribbon can all be great buys at the dollar store. 

Gift Baskets Galore

When you have those occasions that require a gift and a card the dollar store is a definite win-win place to shop. The teacher appreciation basket that you want to put together, but not spend the whole nest egg on, can be made with fun items from several departments within the store. For example, a small organizer bin filled with travel size facial tissue, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and pain reliever. You could add some tea bags of assorted flavors, mixed nuts, and a chocolate treat. Put this is in a large cello bag found and tie it up with a ribbon and as a final touch a thank you/appreciation card on the front. 

Frugal First Aid Kit

Putting together a first aid kit for your home or that care package for the young adult moving out on their own can be done within a short time frame. The dollar store carries first aid items in smaller packaging so you can put everything in a small container. Grab a bowl that has a snap-tight lid or a zipper pouch like a pencil box or bag. Fill the box or bag with band-aids, allergy relief, antacids, nail clippers, vinyl gloves, paper tape, and gauze. You may even find some items not mentioned that are useful additions to a life preparedness kit. 

Go check out one of your local dollar stores this week and see what you can find of value.

There are a lot of real estate agents out there to choose from. It might be hard to tell one from another. Thereís so many ways to find an agent these days including recommendations from friends and family to simple online searches. You want an agent that understands your needs from the neighborhoods that youíre looking to buy a home in, to the layout of the market that youíre selling in. Each agent has different specialties from relocation needs to foreign languages to FHA approved property searches. Below, youíll find some tips to help you find the perfect realtor for you. 


Pick Someone Who You Can Have Straight Talk With


Youíll need to like the person you pick as your realtor, but youíll also need someone who you can talk business with. You donít want a family member who you donít feel comfortable knowing your financial picture, or someone who wonít understand your desire for a certain location or neighborhood. 


Match Your Personality


Youíll be in touch with and will be spending a lot of time with your realtor. You want to find a realtor who can work well with you. Match your personality with theirs. Do you like someone who is a bit aggressive? Would you rather have a realtor who is a bit more easy-going? How often do you want to be in touch with your agent? Just remember that if you donít like your agent, thereís a good chance that other people may not like your agent either! 


The Choice Is Yours


Remember that the choice is yours when youíre looking for a realtor. You want to find a realtor who you know youíll work well with. You also want to know that your realtor will work for you. Itís important that your realtor be ethical, communicative, and be a part of your team throughout the process of buying and selling. Hereís some questions that you should ask your realtor in order to help you understand if theyíre a good fit for you:


  • Will I be working with you exclusively?
  • Are you a full or a part-time agent?
  • How much experience do you have?
  • What broker do you work for?
  • Have you closed homes in this neighborhood before?
  • Do you work with any lenders or have a seasoned team to help us through this process?

  • Asking these questions can help you to get a better understanding of who your realtor is and how they can help you to buy your dream home or sell your current property. This way, youíll have a better idea of what to expect throughout the process.
