Cleaning Supplies– I use the multi-purpose cleaner and glass cleaners and they work as well as the store brands that cost a lot more.  The store also carries refills for handheld dusters and floor dusters.  Another item in this category is sponges and dish clothes which usually come in multi-packs.

Bathroom Supplies-I buy brand name toothpaste and brushes for several months at a time to avoid multiple trips to the store.   In addition they carry soaps and deodorants.

Cosmetics– If you need nail polish remover, files, or accessories, there are usually a huge assortment to choose from.

Holiday Supplies-every holiday you can imagine will have some kind of decoration at your local dollar store.  All you need is a dollar and it’s yours.

School Supplies– dollar stores are a great place to pick up supplies for back to school or throughout the year and especially when a student needs to work on a project with poster board or extra decorations.

Cooking Supplies– Containers, utensils, and dish towels are just a few of the items you will find in this category.
