    There's a Dollar Tree three blocks from my house. Everything's three blocks from my house.

    I too have purchased measuring cups and funnels for photography there. I also buy Whales! I love that store, great finds.

    Kitty litter boxes should hold 8x10s. There's always a million of them at my dollar store, stacked to the ceiling

    I have to remember dollar stores to buy some supplies.

    I love strolling thru dollar stores but always leave with crap I really do not need. At least it's cheaper than when I do that at a camera swap meet. :smile:

    Advice: avoid food items at dollar stores. Bought some boxes of pasta at one once. As I dumped it into the boiling water all the dead hollow carcasses of insect larvae and eggs floated to the top. Ugh. Never again.

    Yes, I love the dollar store. I get colored measuring cups there. Check the accuracy of the measurement markings, though. Three of mine are accurate (enough), but the fourth one reads about 20ml over for each marking.
