Why Dollar Tree Should Be Your Go-To For Summer BBQ Supplies
Although Dollar Tree has raised its prices from $1.00 to $1.25, it still tends to be an affordable alternative compared to its big-box competitors like Walmart and Target. Therefore, it doesn't make sense to spend more at other stores for the same or similar quality items.
For example, Walmart sold a 48-count of Great Value assorted cutlery for $3.24, while Dollar Tree was selling a 48 count of forks, knives, and spoons for only $1.25. Condiments from the Dollar Store also tend to be a few cents cheaper than at stores like Kroger.
As for barbecues, many of the items purchased are only being used for that day — so grab yourself some disposable utensils, a tablecloth, some decorations, paper cups, and paper plates. This will ensure easier cleanup as no dishes will have to be done.
