While you are making your vacation plans, be sure to add a quick trip to the nearest dollar store to stock up on vacation supplies a must-do. Even if you aren’t a frequent shopper at these stores, there are so many items you will need for your family vacation and you can find them at those stores. You’ll be able to find a ton on inexpensive items that only cost a dollar and that means you can save some money before your trip. That way you’ll have a few extra bucks to spend on your vacation.
Extra USB Chargers– We never seem to have enough USB chargers around here and when they only cost a dollar, I don’t mind grabbing a few extras for everyone before we travel.
Kids Sunglasses-If you have little kids, you want to grab sunglasses for them; however, if your kids are like mine, those sunglasses won’t last too long. From getting lost somewhere in the car or trampled on by siblings, sunglasses have a short lifespan. But if you grab a few pairs for just a dollar, you won’t need to worry about lost or destroyed kid’s sunglasses and you can keep a few on hand to replace the last pair.
Puzzles, stickers, coloring books and workbooks– There’s no need to spend more than a dollar on these must-have travel items. You can fill up a book bag full of these fun-filled activities for your kids and not spend a lot of money. You can also grab a baking sheet from the dollar store and use it as a lapboard while your child works on the puzzles and workbooks in the car.
