Nowadays, a dollar or two can't buy you much. Or can it?
It doesn't have to be anything extravagant. Something unique, funny, ideal or just plain wonderful will do just fine...

Christmas-themed Tin/Cardboard Boxes... $1.25

Lookie here what I found at a dollar shop - these beautiful tin and cardboard boxes in different sizes and festive Christmas colours - all for $1.25 each!

They were not too big, or too small and were excellent sizes for gift giving - or stocking stuffers!

Tiny Steel Pot with Hook Handles

Found this interesting-looking little pot at a flea market a while back. I have no clue what it's used for or even how it was used... but if you do, let me know!

I paid $3.00 for it and since I bake a lot, I figured it would come in handy for something. Just not sure what yet.

Anything 'mini' is always cute isn't it? Check out these mini squeezable bottles I bought for under $2 each. One contained a set of 3 -f or your condiments. I LOVE the idea that they are squeezable!

The first bottle called 'Dressing to Go' is a squeezable silicone bottle which I know will sure come in handy for work.

Big and Colourful 4-Piece MEASURING SPOON Set

Look what I found in the dollar store a few weeks back. Aren't they neat? I just love how big and colourful they are and how useful they've been in the kitchen! I paid $2.50 for all 4.

They came in handy when I had to measure out some strawberry puree for my Strange but Chewy Strawberry Shortcake Cookies recipe.

We were sure loving this colourful nostalgic Winchester-themed tin thermometer. Not bad for only $3.00. But as you will see later, sometimes you get what you pay for!

We found something similar at a famous hunting/sports shop nearby for about 4x the price:

Cute Silicone CUPCAKE MOULDS (w/feet)

I'm not sure what type of cupcake I'll be whipping up for these strange looking silicone cupcake molds - but I know they'll come in handy some day (perhaps for a kid's birthday party?), and when I DO use them, I'll be updating this post accordingly. Check them out. They're so cute! Two in a pack for $2.
