Friday Favorites ~ Dollar Store Solutions

After reading my recent post about my dollar store party supplies, my buddy Nicole from Colie's Kitchen reminded me of all the great dollar store tips and tricks that can be found while browsing Pinterest.  So it only seems fitting to make that the topic of today's Friday Favorites! 


This first Dollar Store Solution is pure genius!  We've been wanting to get a backseat organizer for the truck for a while now.  But whenever we are in the automobile aisle at Walmart, I always think of other ways to spend that twenty bucks!  Heather from Decor-ganize shows how she turned a 5 pocket shoe organizer into a backseat organizer!  For a Buck!!! 


Deanna from Shady Tree Diary (love the name of her blog!), shares a clever idea for storing decks of cards and other small toys.  Grace is loving flash cards these days.  I normally keep them in small tins, but she has a few sets of cards and I'm out of the small tins right now.  Plastic soap dishes from the dollar store are a great, frugal solution for storing those different sets of cards! 


I've had my eye on this dollar store craft for a while.  Even before I knew about Pinterest.  It's hard to believe that this wonderful creation by Kara was once a plain silver serving tray from the dollar store!



My final Friday Favorite is something I think would really come in handy when we eat at Sonic.  This padded lap desk was created using a few dollar store finds.  I can't wait to check out our local dollar store....I'm hoping to find those great polka dot trays and place mats!  (I reallywanted to share the photo here, but tried 3 times to save the photo to a file and didn't succeed.)

Loving the back seat organizer. Our back seat looks like a train wreck with all the kid/baby stuff. The price is right too, thanks! -Kelly @ Semi Homemade Mom

Aah! I want to do that shoe organizer trick—I've been meaning to sew some organizers for the car, but I'm not sure I'll have time before our next trip. Thanks for the tip!
