The Dollar Store Secret

By
Home Stager with Stage It Today
1 dollar

 

If you are like me and you are on a tight inventory budget, but need nice things for staging, consider the Dollar Store.  I have found many things that I can mix with my nicer items and noone would know any different.  Next time you need a few accessories, don't be afraid to look at the cheap places. 

I have found things like:

  • solid colored plates
  • silverware
  • cloth napkins
  • coffee cups
  • glass pitchers ( for lemonade)
  • glass jars
  • soaps (I put the soaps in the glass jars for a Pottery Barn look)
  • frames
  • grasses
  • greenery that doesn't look bad
  • pottery ( I put several grasses in the pottery and it looks like I got it from Target or HomeGoods)
  • plate stands
  • finger towels ( some of them actually look really nice) I like brown, white and blue
  • candles (I like white)
  • And many staging toolkit items like rubberbands, tape, wire...

Next time stop in and see what you can make look like a million bucks when it was only one buck!

The dollar store is terrific.  You would be suprised what you can find in there.

Great idea.  They have quite a bit of little things that help.  You just have to look a little harder.

I've purchased the bags of smooth river rocks to use in glass vases or plates with pillar candles.  They're only a dollar, where at Pier 1 - $6.00-8.00!

I've only been in a dollar store a couple of times.  I never would of thought to shop there for inventory items. Thanks so much for these suggestions!
