    Dollar Stores are DANGEROUS!!! lol

    So anyone else have this problem?? You quickly go to the Dollar Store to get an item or two that you need for the next days arts and crafts, and you come out of there with BAGS of stuff lol Those stores are VERY dangerous to people like me lol especially close to holidays like Valentines Day, Christmas, Easter etc...
    Has anyone ever been able to come out of the store with ONLY the items you ran in there to get??

    I have to go in with only cash and can only spend that amount. If I take more then I plan on spending I will way over spend.

    Yup - I call it the $50 store cause I cannot seem to get out of there without spending close to that specially around special occasions!

    Lol..what a coincidence!...I JUST got home from shopping at the dollar store. Really only went in to buy Valentines Day decorations/art supplies, and left with close to $50 worth of "stuff". Funny i saw this post, because I was just telling my husband how dangerous that store is

    That sounds about right! I just went the other day, I think I spent $45. It was mostly Valentines Day stuff. Although, in my defense, my daughters birthday is the 16th, and she likes the Valentine's party

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
Updates
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
