SPRING CLEAN + ORGANIZE + DECORATE ON A BUDGET FT HOLLAR.COM

                      This video is sponsored by Hollar.com  

                          


Hi friends! Spring cleaning is in full effect here and I couldn't be more excited. I went onto Hollar.com and I found almost everything I needed for clean, organizing and decorating my tiny bathroom on a budget! Hollar is my favorite online dollar store. They have a huge selection of items from $1-10. If you haven't seen any of my other Hollar Hauls (playlist here) you should check them out because I always find awesome deals.


CLEANING
Hollar has a new essentials section on their site, where they sell staple items we use everyday but they are super cheap. The sizes are large, you won't be getting the trial size or mini size bottles of cleaners. My favorite find from this section has to be the Reusable Cleaning Cloth! This is a glass cleaning cloth that can be reused. It eliminates the need for glass cleaning solution, so it saves you money and it's helping the planet because you're not making extra waste. This is the ultimate Frugal Lady Must Have!


Storage
When it comes to storage, I love to find new ways to use items. Hollar had this gorgeous Stone briar Large Glass Jar with Lid http://bit.ly/2o7lCxI for under $10 so I decided to use it to store cotton balls, but you could use it anywhere and for anything. It gives an apothecary jar feel and I just love that for the bathroom.


My favorite refresh was my makeup storage. Dollar has a private label called Just the Nest where they have storage and stationary items that are cute and cheap. I decided to use the Just the Nest Desk Organizer as storage for my makeup. The white looks clean and it holds my everyday makeup so well. The pen holder and envelope holder work so well for my makeup brushes and palettes. If I could give you 1 tip, it would be rethink everything. Just because an item is labeled for 1 thing, doesn't mean it can't work as another. I've always wanted acrylic organizers but I don't want to spend $20+ the Desk Organizer was $8 and worth every penny!

The gray storage boxes are also from the Just the Nest line and they are beautiful. The pattern and color work really well in the space but I also see them working in other areas of the house. The Round Storage Boxes by Just the Nest come with 3 boxes that can go inside of each other or can be stacked on top of each other.







I want you all to head over to Hollar and take a look around. They have amazing prices and great finds. I'm always happy with all the items I get from there. If you plan on refreshing your space here is a full list of all the products I mentioned in the video.

One Dollar Zone Haul!! Is This Store Better Than Dollar Tree??!!!


                      

Hi friends! In Philly a new dollar store opened called One Dollar Zone, so you know since I am a Dollar Tree addict, I had to try it out! I shared a haul on my Youtube channel of all the recent finds from Dollar Zone, so be sure to check that out.

I wanted to come here and share more information, incase you're looking for a review and don't know if you should go there or just stick to Dollar Tree.

I've been to Dollar Zone since it's recent opening and each time I go I'm able to find new cool items. The store is stocked well and it's obvious that it was put together nicely and with some thought. I never heard of this store before, but when I searched google they had a legit website and look to be opening a ton of new stores. From what I can see it looks like a East Coast dollar store, but since my West Coast love have 99cents only I ain't mad at it.

The items they sold looked to be a mix of closeouts and china based items. It was clear that a lot of the jewelry was super cheap and had a fast fashion feel. They had great items like glass wear but their party section was for sure lacking. They basically have zero makeup, but I did find some amazing makeup brushes that I LOVE! If you asked me, I'd sayOne Dollar Zone is amazing for house-hold items and crafting. The crafting section blew DT out the water. They had so many of the small craft items, you use and it was a good mix. They had meal prep containers, food storage containers but no organizations bins. They even sell clothes!



The cashiers can be slow and they stuffed 20 bucks worth of stuff in 1 plastic bag, so I make sure to take my reusable bag in when I shop.

In closing, I love the store. I think it's a great addition to Dollar Tree and they really feel like they may give DT a run for their money. They had some great brand names but had amazing off brand finds, they I never see at DT. I'm totally hooked and will add this to my list if places to check out often. If you live in the area or see one opening near you, give it a try!
