Family Dollar Review

There are quite a few Family Dollar stores in my area. I hadn’t been to one in quite a few years, so when the opportunity to review their summer products came along I thought it was the perfect way to re-introduce myself to the store – and going back really opened my eyes to the wonderful assortment of quality products at great prices that Family Dollar offers!

I received a $15 gift card to use at my local Family Dollar. Armed with the gift card, and my oldest son, I set out to find some fun summer essentials for my family. I was surprised at the assortment of summer products I found at my store – everything from sun block lotion, kids sunglasses, beach chairs, summer decorations, and even summer clothing. The prices were so low – I couldn’t believe I have been missing out on these deals all these years! As my son and I perused the aisles, we came across a few items that were must-buys. The first was a 3-piece summer outfit for my younger son Noah. Two short sleeve shirts and a pair of shorts, 100% cotton, for only $8! Lightweight and an easy fit, I’m going to wash it and store it in my diaper bag as a back-up outfit (essential in any season!). The second item we picked up was for my older son who is very into super heroes these days. We came across The Avengers figures that we couldn’t pass up. A 3-pack of figures was only $5 – you won’t find that price anywhere else. While most people wouldn’t consider them “summer essentials”, we certainly couldn’t leave the store without them! Another great steal we scored were $1 board books. I like to keep board books in the car – they are great for those long summer trips and overnight stays (you never have to worry about packing a bedtime book!).

Family Dollar’s line of summer essentials is a one-stop shop for all your seasonal needs. You can pick up items for your pool, items for grilling, summer clothing and sun protection. While you’re there, check out their drug store brand health items, and their grocery products. You can check out their weekly ads and print out coupons right from their website.
