7 of My Favorite Dollar Tree Products that Will Make Your Day Awesome

With the change in the economy, everyone is making cost savings changes. One of my changes is shopping at the dollar stores. This has become my family dollar store. There are a few products that I find there and they have worked just great.

discount store

An online dollar tree store order is so convenient. For those of you that like to buy in bulk. There is no shipping fee. I can request the order to be shipped to my nearest dollar tree and pick it up there. I just need to be sure to have my confirmation number and a picture ID. This is almost like calling in a pizza or restaurant order. They also accept PayPal when ordering. Note that the order must be in bulk. You must order at least a case. For those that prefer not to order in bulk, you can always shop at your nearest Dollar Tree in person.

1. Power House Furniture Polish Lemon

I truly love and enjoy this furniture polish. It smells good too. The lemon smell is very refreshing. It cleans while it conditions the furniture.

2. Shower &Body; Bath Absorbent Body Powder with Lavender

The smell of this body powder will definitely awaken your senses. It is oh so nice. I use this on
my carpet before vacuuming. It leaves my carpet smelling nice and sweet. It does neutralize
odors. This is one of the greatest out of all the dollar items.

3. Face and Body Soap

Although there are a variety of soaps that they sell. I really like the dial antibacterial deodorant soap with spring water and the Irish spring. Although the bars are slightly smaller they come in a pack of 2 which is fine for me.

4. 40-count Makeup Remover Wipes

They are alcohol free and Hypoallergenic. For those that have sensitive skin, this may be the ideal product for you. I just love the 40 pre-moistened cloths. I usually keep them in the refrigerator. The refrigerator keeps them moist and the coolness helps with eye puffiness. I like the way that it leaves my skin feeling silky smooth. As you can see from my profile picture I have no blemishes. This great product contains Aloe Vera, vitamin E , and B5.

5. April Bath &Body; Shower Hydrating Mask

This is enriched with green tea extract. It is another product that I like the way it makes my skin feel. It's color is light green. I just leave it on for 5-10 minutes, then removed it with warm water about 2 times a week.

6. April Bath &Body; Shower Eye Gel

I just put this on under my eyes in a tapping motion. It is enriched with vitamin E & Vitamin B-5. I can leave this on under my makeup. This also is a good aide for puffy eyes.

7. Fisher-Price Flash Cards

These flash cards are for children age 2-5. There are 36 cards with different colors and shapes. Children love playing with these cards. The cards are very good in teaching colors and shapes. All of the 7 products above that I have just shared with you were purchased for only $1.00 each. That was and is a great deal for me. What are your special dollar store products?

Are You Habitually Late?

Are you or do you know of someone that is always late? There may be times that you cannot avoid being late, but there is a difference when someone is late the majority of the time.

Chronic Lateness

Possibly being late is of little importance to some. Even though we have been given 24 hours in a day, there are those that make a choice to be late.

1. Work

Your place of employment may not tolerate you being late too many times. I recall an employee that was late for work nearly everyday. This type of behavior occurred seemingly for a long time. I wondered why doesn't management do something about this behavior? Then one day I discovered she was fired for the chronic lateness. I do not know her circumstances, but employers may tolerate lateness sometimes and not all of the time. I have often wondered why people choose to be late.

There are a few things that you may want to try, if you are tired of being late and want to change your behavior.

2. Set the Clock

Set your clock earlier than you have been setting it in order to rise up early in the morning. Everyone's timing is different. You will need to decide how early you need to get up in order to make it to your destination. Some may only need and hour, whereas others may need several hours especially to allow time with children.

3. Log or Journal

Did you know keeping a log or journal for about a week of everything you are doing before work, may give you a visual of things that could be changed or eliminated? Could you be trying to multitask and doing too many things before work? You will have to decide this.

4. Leave Early

If you need to be to your destination at 9 am., are you waiting until 8:55 to travel 50 or 60 miles to your destination? Does this allow for emergencies on the road that might occur?

5. Sleep

Finally are you getting the needed sleep that you need to wake up refreshed for you new day? You will need to determine how much sleep you need. Although, you may not get it all the time, you may want to strive towards getting enough sleep. Your body will determine how much sleep you need, because when you do not get it, your body will not hesitate to let you know.

Why not make it a choice to stop being habitually late? What do you do to make sure that you make it to your destination on time? I would love to hear from you.

Update on My Tracker 2 Go App Journey

Hi everyone. This is an update since I started using the FREE Tracker 2 Go app in 2015. The results are not as fast as I thought they would be, but I have seen results.

Plan for weight loss

It is always good to have a plan for weight loss. I have lost 4 pounds in nearly a year and 3 months. That is not a lot. I am still quite intentional though. In the beginning I would go back and forth a couple of pounds, but now I am seeing the weight come off. Keep in mind I did not need to loose a lot of weight, but I am weight conscious of what my ideal weight should be. A few things I discovered. 

1. Hunger

There were days I seemed so hungry, so I needed to adapt with fruits and or snacks while still watching my calorie intake. That was a struggle, because sometimes people would offer me cakes, cookies, etc. My response was that I am cautious of what I am eating. Eventually the hunger dissappeared

2. Thinking

There were times that I was just thinking about how good a certain food would taste. I needed to change my way of thinking. In my article https://anointedtoday.blogspot.com/2015/10/mind-blowing-free-tracker-2-go-app.html I discussed calories and exercise, and BMI mass. The Tracker 2 Go App helped me to be aware of my caloric intake and exercise as well. Even though there were some days that I went over my calorie intake. I did not beat myself up. Also, I realized that during the winter the days were shorter, so I needed to remember to get enough rest and stop trying to do as much activities as I would do during the summer months when the days were longer. Yes, this has been a learning experience. I am still learning.

3. Exercise and Rest

I have learned that exercise is very important on my journey. I walk at least once or twice a week. I have also, discovered that during the winter months when the days are shorter, I tend to want to stay up later. I miss the longer days. So I have intentionally made it a point to keep a regular bedtime routine. Even though I want to stay up later, I do not stay up.

4.  Calories

Note: Sometimes the tracker may not find the food that you list. This does not happen often. I just google it online and it will list the number of calories for that food. What have you done to help your weight loss journey.

Theresa May . . . . Donald Trump (OMG)

It is wonderful to witness history. There are those that gave predictions that Donald Trump would never become President. There were those that predicted there would never be a black President. There were those that predicted certain actors would not be President.

Yet, here we are after experiencing all of that.

Donald Trump

A few things to think about; Is waterboarding an answer?


As I watched the Prime Minister, Theresa May speak. I noted she was quite eloquent and well-versed. I like that she made it clear she did not believe in torture “water boarding.” I recall watching a movie that showed water boarding. I thought how horrible, but then I think about a point that Trump made. We are playing on an uneven field. Isis is bold enough to behead Americans and then show it online for all the world to see. “How cruel is this?” How inhumane for the families and the world to endure? Although Trump believes water boarding is an effective technique is this the only technique? Possibly there are other more effective techniques that have not been tried. Is there anyone thinking outside the box?

The Wall

Although Trump says he will build a wall and Mexico will pay, the Mexican President is steadily announcing loud and clear that they will not pay and most importantly they do not believe in walls. Could this be looked at as a bully technique by Trump? I'm just saying. He is building a wall and telling someone else that even though they do not want it they will pay for it one way or another. How does this look to you? I'm just saying.


Know that our children are looking at the entire process. This next generation does have an opinion. Middle School students are watching CNN news as part of their curriculum. They are having their own discussions. While they are not adults, they are our next generation of adults.

Obama Care. . . Trumps Replacement

There were many pros and cons with Obama Care, but think of the many that were able to have insurance under Obama Care. Will Trump's replacement insurance be affordable or will only a certain class be able to afford it? Will the insurance companies jump on board and willingly participate? That is only a few questions to ask. Are people giving Trump a chance or is there a lot of prejudging? What do you think?

Just How Important are Your Eyes?

Could you Imagine not being able to see? Or to suddenly or slowly go blind because of a generative disease? Your eyes are precious. Take care of them.

 What is eyesight?

 You definitely want to have healthy eyes. A few tips are listed below that may be helpful for your eyesight.

Anti-Glare Screens

Did you know that anti-glare screens an protect your eyes while on the computer? You can also, turn the lighting down on your computer, because the light from it can cause eye strain. I discovered this after having eye surgery. It was a slow process in getting back to using my computer, because I discovered my eyes and head would hurt when I attempted to read or write on the computer. Even though I had anti-glare protection on my glasses, I still had the pain. I could not even get on the computer for 5 minutes. Eventually I purchased an anti-glare screen for my computer. I found that made all the difference. The anti-glare screen is a great investment if you are using the computer a lot.

Quit Smoking

I know that smoking may be a touchy subject for some, but according to WebMD smoking is more likely to cause cataract, nerved damage, and Macular degeneration. Some probably think that will never happen to them until it happens.


It does not hurt to invest in a good pare of sunglasses which may range from $150.00 and up. A good pare of sunglasses will protect the eyes and keep those dangerous sun rays from your eyes and this is so important. You want to block those UV-A and UV-B radiation. Even though I have that protection on my regular bi-focals, I find that my sunglasses work so much better. I really appreciated my sunglasses after my eye surgery, because they give my eyes so much protection, as my eyes are also sensitive to the light. I recall after my surgery putting my sunglasses on when leaving church. A lady asked me if I was making a new fashion statement. I explained to her my eyes were sensitive to light after eye surgery and the sunglasses helped me out a lot. I (lol) I laughed out loud.


According to the National Eye Institute, you want to try the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds in order to reduce eyestrain if you are spending a lot of time at the computer. Have you taken time today to rest?
