Shopping at Dollar Tree for Cruise Essentials

  • Dollar stores can be a great place to find affordable items for a cruise.
  • In the travel section, you can find items like toothpaste, makeup wipes, deodorant, and tissues in larger sizes ideal for longer trips. Other items to consider include razors, first aid supplies, medication, lip balm, LED teal lights for mood lighting, special occasion decorations, folders for paperwork, sticky notes, and flight snacks.
  • Thank you cards and jumbo plastic clothespins are handy for showing appreciation or utility on a cruise.
  • Some items like cups, sunscreen, and supplements are better purchased elsewhere for quality reasons.

In this video, we share tips for shopping at the Dollar Tree for items to use on a cruise. We’ll talk about the affordability and convenience of finding travel-sized essentials in the travel section, such as toothpaste, makeup wipes, deodorant, and tissues. Special occasion decorations, such as birthday and anniversary items, are highlighted as cost-effective options.

Practical items include folders for organizing paperwork and jumbo sticky notes for leaving messages. Snacks for flights, like beef jerky and crackers, are recommended as healthy options available at a good price. We’ll also include some unique finds, like thank you cards for cruise staff and jumbo plastic clothespins with versatile uses onboard.

We recommend that you avoid purchasing a few things at Dollar Tree stores, like cups, sunscreen, and supplements, due to concerns about quality. We’ll explain the reasons more in the video. Be sure to share your favorite dollar store finds and suggest content ideas for future videos.
