I love Shopping at Dollarama – Great Store, Great Products

A few years ago, I was driving and as I was overlooking the streets of Toronto, Canada, I discovered Dollarama, so my curiousness came to the better of me, and plus after hearing a lot about it, I decided to go into the parking lot to park my car, to stop in to see what the hype is all about. I went inside the store and I began going through the aisles to see all the items on the shelves. So I ended up spending some money on really great products. I cannot remember exactly what I had bought, but it was pretty useful afterwards.

Dollarama is an incredible store. I can spend a couple of hours in there, Maybe more. I buy some things to organize things, I buy toiletries, gum, chocolate, and other merchandise. Everything goes from $1 to $3 – Things that are not marked are a $1.

You can purchase Betty Crocker products, house-hold cleaning products, sponges, hangers for your closet, garment bags, storage boxes, Kitchen stuff, dishware, table clothes, towels, seasonal products, food, snacks, drinks, outdoor stuff, candles, beauty and care products, hair products, toys, travel size bottles, great brands, gift bags, greeting cards, hardware, pet stuff, wires, cell phone and tablet cases, cosmetic bags, socks, hats, slippers, crafts, arts, pens, pencils, kids toys, office products, invitation cards, disposable cups, plates, napkins, notebooks and so much more.

I have so much more fun browsing and looking around dollar shops more than those department stores and places that sell those products for a lot more. There are products at Dollarama from 1-3 dollars, that sells it from 10 to 15 dollars in other places and more. I am quite addicted to Dollarama. Sometimes I buy things when I do not even need it at that moment, but then it does come useful in the long run, which I am glad about.

Do you shop at a dollar store? Do you prefer dollar shops over any other retail stores? What do you find to be convenient at dollar shops? Would love to hear your opinion and what you have to say about it.

Canada’s 10 Provinces has several Dollarama Stores.

Went Through My Childhood Diary – Did You Have One?

Since I was a child, I bought a diary to write my most private thoughts, used it to draw pictures of hearts, sun, stick figurines, and more. I just came across my diary this morning. I haven’t opened it up in more than 13 years. I cannot believe the things I had written and done in there. I forgot some of the things too, but It totally refreshed my memory. I remember I made a goal to write into it about my daily life, but I didn’t get to do it. I remember how I used it to draw mostly and I used to be intrigued by eyebrow shapes, so I used to create eyebrow shapes, I used to draw the beach, and the shore, because when I was little at 7-8 years of age, I had taken my first trip out to the beach and flying too, so I put all those in my Diary. I stopped writing and drawing in my diary when I was about 12 years old, and when I turned 13, I stopped playing with dolls and barbies too. Now as I look back into my Diary there were so many things I wrote about my school crushes, about the people I liked, people I didn’t like, and I wrote about how people used to really bully me because I was different then everyone else, and I never used to let anybody read and see my diary. I always kept it in a private place in my room that not even my mom could find it.

Now, I have my diary in one of my memories boxes and sometimes I take it out to just look and see what I have, and sometimes I forget what I have. So its really nice to spend some time to look at past memories and see how big of a difference in time there is. I love diaries, I love keeping these things because its a sentimental value to me and all the memories that are filled in those diaries and memorable things I kept from the past. I still have not shown it to anyone and I probably never will, but maybe I will in the long run. Lets see what happens. In the last one to two years of writing in my diary those coloured gel pens, hybrid, neon coloured pens came out and everyone started having them, so I decided I want some too, so I had a big collection of them and I started writing letters, diaries, and everything with that. I made friends from when I went to Daytona Beach, Florida and they came from England back in 1997-1998, and I started to write to them with these gel pens and we kept writing to each other back and forth for about 4 years and then that is when e-mail came to place and then we kept in touch from then on.

It is pretty neat on how time plays a big impact on how diaries, letters are written, and now our diary is our blog and virtually and technology has evolved a lot since then. How many of you have had diaries when you were little? Do you still have them now? Do you know anybody who still writes in a journal book? I don’t know how many do, but now blogging, and writing journals online has changed the way diaries are written, and to me, nothing beats writing and using imagination in hand written diaries, decorating it, arts and crafts. Although writing a blog online and on a computer also has its greatness, but really, nothing beats being crafty and doing hands on things. How about you?

 

I Like The Internet Very Much, I Love To Communicate

In The last 14 years to almost 15 years now, since I started using the internet, I can remember when it was dial up and used to keep the phone line occupied most of the time, now the innovation of the internet has become more advanced and it’s switched over to Cable which is awesome, so that the phone does not get busy all the time when emergency phone calls are made. More over, I’d like to bring the internet to my personal level and how much I like the internet. I started by small steps to get to know computers, to get to know how to operate the internet, how to search, how to get the information I want right away. I am so happy with what the internet has become now. Information is transmitted immediately and instantly around the world. You can be in California and you can e-mail somebody in Italy and it will get there in an instant, or when you want to e-mail someone from Canada right to Australia, it will go in seconds. Technology has become awesome and it has made the world a smaller place. E-mail and typing has taken over and post offices, paper and pens are stacked up at the stores and I see no one really buying notebooks, pens, pencils anymore, It is great for the environment, but it hurts a lot of business’s but I also like to write and use pens too when I am in Bible Study and when I make shopping lists when I go out and more. I do not want to forget my penmanship. Further more, Skype, webcam’s are used to talk to family and friends around the world. Its an incredible tool to use, but to be careful with the internet too as it can be a dangerous place also. It all depends on how you use the internet and how you portray yourself.

Social Networking, Media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Pinterest, Tumblr, WordPress, Google, Linkedin, and so many other social media sites make the world a smaller place by finding family, girlfriends, boyfriends, friends, school mates, colleagues, and people you have met in your life to keep in touch with them. I cannot even begin to describe how I appreciate the internet. Or else I would have never found people and I would have never communicated with people whom I have not seen in ages. I am glad that the internet exists for great things only. One of the greatest things I like to do on the internet is read, do research on my favourite things, subjects, topics, discover new recipes, finding certain things on the internet, I have been looking for, reading about history, cultures, the world, and geography, as well as researching the places I have traveled and so much more. The internet is a tool where anything and everything can be searched. Its a great thing and I am so glad I have the internet. To be honest, I’d be lost without it. It is like my communication and news tool of the world besides the newspapers and television.

Now for safety and security while being on the internet. It’s a great idea to get a really great quality virus scanner and virus protector for your computer and internet. Be careful who you chat with and be careful who you add on your social networking profiles. People can misuse others, people and manipulate others, and do terrible things. It is very important to not just chat on any chatting websites. Do not give personal information, passwords, and other information to other people. no matter who they are. Things can be used against you and you have to always watch out and be very careful on things because whatever goes on the internet will always stay there forever and you need to really exercise caution. The internet can be a great place, but it is all on how you treat it, how well you take care of yourself online and not do anything that will jeopardize your future. Enjoy your internet and enjoy what you do, but always be mindful and take precautions. It can save a lot of hassle in the long run. Always protect yourself.
