Our second installment of the Spring Craft Blog Hop 2015 #SCBH2015 has been amazing. So…
These Dollar Tree Spring Must-haves will help save you lots of money for St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, spring gardening, parties, and spring break road trips. Check out my list for all my Spring Shopping Savings Secrets. In fact, I use items from Tip #1 multiple times throughout the year!
Note: This is NOT a sponsored post; I’m not getting any money from the Dollar Tree. I’m just simply sharing some tips on how to save money this time of year.
I don’t shop at the Dollar Tree daily or even weekly, but there are a few items that I always buy there, and there are a few times a year, that I ALWAYS shop there….Springtime being my favorite.
There’s just something about their Spring inventory, that gets me really excited. It seems like they have an even wider array of really useful, practical things for only…$1.
Which is great because between spring holidays, school parties, restocking your garden—things can really add up this time of year. And it’s nice to be able to find savings anywhere you can.
So without further adieu, I bring you my super secret tips for Spring Shopping at the Dollar Tree!
Dollar Tree Must-Haves to Save You Tons This Spring!
Dollar Tree Must-Have #1: Hawaiian Luau Supplies
If you’re a Parrothead, like I am—then you’ll need to stock on your Hawaiian Margaritaville gear somewhere. Or if you just like to have Hawaiian luau parties, this is also the place for you!
I learned (probably around) 5 years ago, that every spring, Dollar Tree gets in a shipment of fabulous Hawaiian themed luau party supplies. So, I stock up because once summer comes, they sell out FAST!
My favorites are the festive leis and grass skirts. But I also love the party supplies like the pineapple straws and umbrellas. I used these in our smoothies throughout the year. Nothing brightens up a gloomy day like an umbrella or pineapple straw in your glass.
Dollar Tree Must-Have #2: Seeds and Planting Supplies
I discovered a few years ago that the Dollar Tree is a GREAT place to buy seeds. They have a wide selection but my fave are the ones that come 4 to a pack!
If you go to a regular garden center, I’ve found the seeds are much more expensive.
I like to use them as tea party favors or teacher gifts (in addition to planting). Just add a cute note saying “Thank You for Helping me Grow,” and it’s a nice addition to any Teacher Appreciation gift.
Dollar Tree Must-Have #3: Garden Decor
Dollar Tree has a great selection of garden stepping stones, lawn ornaments, wind chimes and my fave…FAIRY GARDEN pieces! For ONLY A DOLLAR!
(Everywhere else is waaaay more for fairy garden accessories…trust me, I’ve looked.)

Dollar Tree Must-Have #4: Craft Supplies for Spring Projects
Grab all your basic spring craft supplies for a lower price than the traditional craft store. I recently picked up some silk flowers, craft sticks, colored feathers, and googly eyes for some projects I’m going to make with my girls.
Dollar Tree Must-Have #5: Easter baskets
From pretty multi-colored baskets to sport themed basket-buckets, monsters and animals, Dollar Tree has a really great selection–all for just $1 each. You can’t beat that!
Dollar Tree Must-Have #6: Easter Basket Goodies
Lots and lots of trinkets, toys, and candy.
Dollar Tree Must-Have #7: Boxes and Totes for Spring Organizing
In addition to pretty decorative boxes, you can find a wide array of plastic totes-perfect for all of your organizing needs.
Dollar Tree Must-Have #8: Spring Bonnets
My daughters love the Spring Bonnets. They’re also great for dress-up later in the year.
Dollar Tree Must-Have #9: Wreath Bases
When I first started to test the waters of wreath making, I was a little surprised at how expensive the wreath bases at the craft stores were! But in the Spring, Dollar Tree has a wide selection of sizes, so it’s a good time to stock up for the rest of the year!
Dollar Tree Must-Have #10: Spring Break Road Trip Supplies
Stock up on puzzles, coloring books, and other activities to keep kids busy in the car, in the hotel, and all spring.
