You can always rely on 99 cent stores for cheap entertainment – even if there’s nary a penny in your pocket. Window shopping and aisle browsing are worth the drawbacks of the under a buck atmosphere. For the record, drawbacks often include a lack of air conditioning, a medley of Designer Imposter fragrances assaulting your nose, and the infuriating discovery of items being sold for over a dollar. Always make sure the name is “99 cent ONLY” or “99 cents & UNDER” or “LESS than a dollar” – they will trick you with “99 cents and up” or “starting at a dollar” store names! The other stuff is generally unavoidable, sorry.
If you are willing to brave the dollar store (and I certainly recommend that you do!), you can expect to find treasures like these:
Feels like wear a panty but no need to wear pangty! Well, that checks off the two most important features of a pseudo-Spanx type garment in my book. And, as if that’s not enough, it makes clothes fit better and look berrer. Hooray!
Is it just me or is this a gross concept for the rear end of a pair of junior’s boy short panties? The moment I graduated out of diapers was the moment that my tush stopped having anything to do with my dad, let alone being his “sweetie”. I’m not sure if the possessive implication or the potential pseudo-sexuality is more bothersome to me. Or, you know, that whole incest thing. Two thumbs down on these cheap cheekies.
Swear to God I almost bought myself this waist trimmer belt. I was compelled to trust it! Make you beauty healthy! Then I saw the $1.99 price tag and I felt BETRAYED.
My acquisitions for that day included some cheapo crackle nail polish (cheap + turquoise hue + crackle effect = my toes look like they have a marine fungus), a night-light that was called a KNIGHT light (the knight was named Sir MagnaBumble, which in my head is a great name for a proper condom usage spokesman – are you listening Trojan?!), and a set of high quality plastic heart-shaped hooks that wouldn’t stay stuck on my wall. So, altogether, a pretty good haul!
