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.

Gas Prices Are So Ridiculously High – I cannot believe it

I have just been so appalled by the gas price increasing so much by month and annually. As it is society and living expenses are increasing as well with taxes and everything else especially in North America. People are working so hard to make ends meet to put bread and butter on the table and make an honest living. These gas prices do not have to be this high. Most of peoples earnings go into gas nowadays and high taxes.  It is unbelievable how ridiculous it is. Some people who make minimum wage or a little higher use a day or two’s worth of work to just pay for fuel costs. How are people supposed to go out driving, enjoy themselves, go away on road trips, go to and from work, go to functions, gatherings with the constant worry of gas consumption. Yes I do believe in saving the environment and less emissions and toxins going up in the ozone layer, but there is a limit. People shouldn’t have to worry about their gas tanks all the time. Some people think twice of driving to places and making trips here and there because of the constant worry of having an empty tank. Whatever happened to the 39cents a liter or gallon or whatever it was? So people end up staying home or they end up not taking the car anywhere and they miss out on something really good. These gas companies and government should really focus on getting the fuel prices down significantly. People aren’t born to work like crazy and work so many hours a day just pay off for gas and some people work far from home and some don’t have access to public transit as much and things have become too inconvenient. People deserve breaks and people deserve to be treated like human beings. Nobody should be subject to work like animals(pardon me) to just pay for high taxes and fuel costs. People have families to support, necessities of life, school tuition to pay, medical expenses, utilities, and so much more. All these add up and some barely make it.

I look at these gas stations and I look at these prices and its nuts. totally nuts! Don’t go too far, the groceries are so expensive. 25 bucks doesn’t really get you far these days with that either. Now people are looking for more fuel efficient cars, hybrids and smaller cars. Now these big cars with more than 4 cylinders are being downsized. I feel for people who work to just pay for gas and food here and there. Life has become so tough out there, high rising costs that are hurting everyone and that is why so much stress, depression and people who go crazy. Its because of things like this. People are getting sick, people don’t know if they are coming or going. I really feel for people out there who don’t even have enough time to spend with family and friends because of it. Before Sunday’s nobody used to work and people were entitled to time off, now its so fast paced and people don’t have weekends and evenings anymore to spend with their loved ones. even during holidays. My heart aches and it breaks me to hear these stories about people trying to survive to make a living. Its unbelievable. I really do hope things turn around for peoples sake. Were all human, we deserve sometime to ourselves and our loved ones. Change needs to happen and needs to happen now before more and more people get sick, depressed and stressed. Life should be balanced with everything and life is not all about work, but nowadays unfortunately that is what people need to do to survive in this day in age. Lets hope for the best and hopefully things improve.
