    I like their 1-inch Jot 3-Ring Binders with Printed Vinyl Covers. They are so colorful and of good quality.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing! Good to know how nice they are!

    Right now you can get composition books and spiral notebooks for $.50 & $.75 at Target! I love Dollar Tree but I love saving money too! 🀣

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks a ton for the feedback! πŸ™Œ

    I buy strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups for myself at Dollar Tree a couple times a year. It is really difficult to find just strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups and not a variety pack. I don’t like any other flavor. When I can find a larger box of just strawberry, it is the tongue tattoo type. The ones sold at Dollar Tree are plain.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So happy to hear you can grab your favorite item at Dollar Tree, Sara! πŸ™ŒπŸ’•

    Unlikely the backpacks would last a week in a school setting. Pencil top erasers always fall apart. I haven’t found a brand that lasts. When I was in school, this wasn’t the case. No idea why the quality has deteriorated. Food items at DT are no longer an economical choice. It would only make financial sense if the larger size would spoil before you could finish it.

      Have you tried Paper Mate 73015 erasers? A box of 144 is around $6 on Amazon and lasts me literally forever.

    • Diane

      My husband and I play Suduko a lot. I have purchased these erasers. They work well for us.

    The dollar trees in my area are carrying Ticonderoga Renew pencils. The same pack is 2.79 on Amazon

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing what you found at your location! πŸ™ŒπŸ’—
