Grow Your Money at Dollar Tree with Hallmark Expressions

Surprise! I found a place where money grows on trees; well figuratively speaking. My latest money-saving, jaw dropping discovery is from the Dollar Tree. They now carry Expressions cards by Hallmark  for only $1.00 each. They also carry Heartline, a Hallmark Company,  which are 2 for $1.00. Now you can celebrate every moment and every holiday without breaking the bank. Dollar Tree makes giving quality greeting cards affordable. If you don’t believe me just check out the pictures of some of the awesome cards I picked up. Yes, these are just like the Hallmark cards we all know: Stylish and Heartwarming, made with Quality Papers.


I am so excited to have Hallmark Expressions and  Heartline  by Hallmark cards at Dollar Tree and on One of my favorites is this gorgeous Wedding card by Hallmark Expressions. The card pairs marvelously with the special wedding gift.


I cannot believe I only spent $4.00 for four Hallmark Expressions cards and $2.00 for four Hallmark Heartline cards! I typically spend an upwards of $5.00 a card at other retailers. Now with Dollar Tree, I have a ton of extra cash for more shopping! So, I’m thinking yes, money does grow like trees when you buy Hallmark cards from Dollar Tree.

Checklist to Set Up Your Dorm Room Kitchen

Aside from the lamps, rugs and bedding the most important college checklist is The Dorm Room Kitchen! After being the parent of a college student who is now in her Sophomore year, we learned a few things: The dining hall can get old, eating out is expensive and with the right items, dorm room cooking can be a breeze! The first semester we definitely were not equipped in the kitchen department. Yes, I sent dishes, cups, storage containers, a refrigerator and a microwave but, come to find, the items I’m telling you about can make or break a pleasant college eating experience. NO MORE FRESHMAN 15!

And with the summer heat beating down on us this Cherry-Vanilla Smoothie is the perfect afternoon treat. It is rich and creamy, and will definitely cool you down. If you want to add some unneeded calories, top it off with whipped cream for an extra special treat!
