Three Dollar Tree must-haves and one to avoid – including a laundry item that can pass as a ‘dupe’

DOLLAR Tree is known for its cheap finds and killer deals, but not every product is worth the buy.

One bargain-hunter has detailed her three must-haves and an item she passes on from the beloved retailer.

Amanda (@dollartreedollface) is a deals finder and “addicted to Dollar Tree.”

She posts tons of videos on TikTok where she shares with her followers all kinds of products she finds while shopping at the discount retailer.

In a few of her videos, she shared three products she thought were worthy of her $1.25.

But in one video, she mentioned which product she wasn’t the biggest fan of.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of all items worth the buy and the one to pass over.

Just remember that all products are likely to vary based on store and location. 


One item definitely worth the purchase is the beautifully crafted glass jars.

The bottles come in three different colors: light pink, clear, and green.

Shoppers can use these as festive decor for spring to fill with candy or can even be used more purposefully as containers.

At Amanda’s store, the bottles were displayed with the St. Patrick’s Day themed items as they perfectly matched spring.


Cleaning may be dirty but it doesn’t have to be expensive.

Amanda found the Fresh ‘N Clean Laundry Detergent Pods in the Spring Fresh scent for just $1.25.

She liked these so much that she likened them to the Tide Pods writing “Dollar Tree Tide Pods Dupe?” on her TikTok.

The pods come in a pack of 10 and can be used on everything like garments, towels, and bedding.

Plus, Dollar Tree even said that these are “perfect for resale in laundromats and convenience stores, also the ideal size for stocking resort and rental properties.”


In another video, the bargain-hunter scored four makeup products she thinks are worth the couple of bucks.

For shoppers looking for a quick lip fix, she recommended grabbing the Make Me Up Plumping Lip Gloss.

The gloss is infused with almond oil and jojoba seed.

Jojoba is typically found as an additive in cosmetic products – especially those claiming to be made from natural ingredients.

Another product she found was the Le Mercerie Long Lasting Eyeliner.

The liquid eyeliner is a part of the favorite essentials collection and comes in the shade Midnight Black.

Given that it sells at other stores and online retailers for around $8 to $11, buying one from Dollar Tree for under $2 could be the way to go.


While Dollar Tree has most of Amanda’s favorite finds, she revealed in another video that she skips one thing in particular – earbuds.

The specific ones she skips are from the Live Love Music brand.

They claim to be active wireless earbuds with an in-line microphone to take calls.

The earbuds should have Bluetooth connectivity and secure fit ear hooks, but it may have promised more than they could actually deliver on. 

“I bought them, charged them, and they didn’t turn on ever,” Amanda said on TikTok.

For those looking for a different pair of affordable earbuds, try Walmart as shoppers can buy a pair for just $6.

They come in three colors and are lightweight and comfortable.
