Treasures For Dollars is a mini-series that is completely focused on things that I actually find (and buy) from dollar stores and other similar stores. It will alternate with Blythe On A Budget articles for the next little while until the finale of the mini-series (at Part 10). I hope you enjoy the series!
Despite the occasional time that my room looks incredibly messy, I do like having some order and organization in my life and that goes for my dolls as well. Whenever I go to a meet, a doll (or two) is either in a carrier or wrapped in a shirt and just put into my bag. Any other extra dolly stuff (clothes, shoes, etc.) are just tossed into my purse as well. I decided that really had to end.
One of the nice things about make-up bags is that small ones (handy for holding doll clothes and shoes) are fairly inexpensive. I can find them at my local dollar store for a buck each or you can also get them for free at make-up counters when you’re buying over a certain price limit. Luckily for me, my mom likes to buy pricey cleansers (the inexpensive ones literally make her have a rash) so whenever there’s a promotion of free make-up bag with goodies, she buys what she wants and whoever in the house wants it, can have the goodies. It’s technically not ‘free’ since it is with a purchase, but for a great organizational bag, who am I to say no? Bonus, it fits everything that I took along on my last meet: extra hair ties, clear plastic elastics for keeping shoes on, and a few extra hats in case someone wanted to smoosh down their hair.
What’s a good inexpensive dolly-find you discovered recently?
