What Should I Bring To A Party?

01c88a8bc70bb17d92d923af2a79fa58Today’s blog was inspired by two things:  A Dollar Tree Purchase and Several Social Events.

I love dollar stores.  I think I get this from my mom who also loves dollar stores.  They are perfect for when you are making gift baskets, booing a neighbor, freezer meals, and lots more.  A few weeks ago Christa and I were at the Dollar Tree and we saw these platters with lids for sale.  I decided to buy 5 of them because I knew they would come in handy.

The first time I used the tray was for a Halloween party a week ago.  It was a Saturday and the girls asked me to treat them to Shipley’ s Donuts for breakfast.  I decided to buy an extra 7 bags of donut holes because they are so good.  The plan was to bring them to the Halloween party that night.

The next time I used the platter was a week later when all of my family came in.  My mom cut a bunch of my veggies and placed them in the platter for a healthy alternative to all of the bad food we would be eating over the course of Halloween weekend.IMG_0570The final Dollar Tree purchase came in handy on Friday night when we went to a Halloween party.  I wanted to bring something and was tickled when I saw that Keebler has started using flavors very similar to Girl Scouts.  I wanted to bring a cookie platter. I bought 4 different types of cookies (thin mint, carmel delights, pecan sandies, m&m).

My question for you, what is your best dollar store purchase?

    The foil casserole pans are also a great buy at $1. You can give a dish and don’t have to worry about getting back your pan.
