How Dollar Stores, Sales & BOGOs can = Clutter

Buy only what you need! Sales can = clutter!

With Christmas approaching it’s easy to be swayed by cheap prices to fill the stockings and cupboards with dollar store items, sale prices and BOGOs! Think twice before you buy. Sales can = clutter and it’s still your hard-earned money that you are spending! Don’t let the cheap prices and product quality make you buy more than what you really need & want. Remember that dollar store items don’t last long, things always go on sale and ask yourself if you really need the 2nd BOGO item?! Otherwise, you could be left with piles of ‘stuff’ that sits around forever and less money in your wallet. Which in other words, means excess clutter!


Now is a great time to write out all the people you need to buy for. Find out what they would really like to see under the tree for Christmas before you buy! If you take the guessing game out of the equation you will also find that you will save a lot of time! Please also remember to shop locally whenever possible! Even though our largest ‘hit’ from Covid may be over, businesses are still not at 100% of what they used to be.

No clutter here…Money well spent!
