It's Tuesday

This morning I woke up early again and GOT UP!  :)  I decided to finish mopping our tile in the Scrapbook Nook and the Living Room.  Normally I wouldn't have been too satisfied and excited to touch it.  This morning, however, was rather refreshing and serene.  As I mopped and thought, it felt invigorating.  I completely detest, with a passion I might add, cleaning.  I can't stand it.  But it has felt good to have tackled it head on. 

Last night I ventured to a new dollar store on my way home from work.  I must admit that I was in love!!!  I don't typically go into dollar stores anymore.  When the first came out, I was a fanatic.  I would want to go to the dollar store to see what they had.  It was exciting.  You could get so many things for a dollar.  How much better could life be?  Then I came to the realization that a lot of the stuff was junk and cheapo.  Some things, however, were worth going there to shop for.  Unless I go for a specific item, I don't really go there just to browse. 

I found myself excitedly walking through the aisles of this dollar store with eager anticipation.  I found some awesome finds.  However, I soon realized it wasn't a "dollar store" as you would think.  It was soon discovered that this store was a "dollar AND UP" store.  Instead of things being a dollar, they were about $1.39 plus tax for the cheaper items. 

Still I was soon consumed with such excitement in finding some gorgeous flower, beaded and feathered hair things for my daughter in all different colors.  I couldn't resist buying a few.  They were so cute.  I am so excited to put them in her hair on Sundays for church.  When I showed them to her at home, her face completely lit up and she was smiling from ear to ear.  I also decided, on a complete whim, to buy me a ring.  It might seem to be some cheapo piece of crap to someone else, but I love it.  It is silver.  It was $1.29 plus tax.  That $1.29 is worth the happiness I feel today.  :) 

What do you think?  What are your favorite dollar stores?  What are your favorite finds at dollar stores?
