Five Below Finds


I discovered a new store! It’s called Five Below and it’s a dollar store – or technically, a five dollar store – because everything is under five dollars. Five Below is bright and clean and full of cheap crap from China, so in other words – very dangerous for me.

I got a Frozen T-shirt and some hair clips for my daughter.

I got macaroni and cheese duck tape and a “No Farting” button for my son.

I got matching Jason Hockey mask socks for my BFF and I…what am I forgetting?


OH YEAH…nail polish. Five Below has an exclusive brand of nail polish called “Funky Fingers”, which is produced by Color Club. The regular colors are 3/$5, but I picked up a couple of bottles from the solar collection at 2/$5.

“Cowabunga” is a hot pink that is supposed to turn red in the sun. “Gnarly, Dude” is a clear base with pink and black glitter that is supposed to turn darker in the sun. Internet scuttlebutt is that they don’t work so well, but we shall see…

    I LOVE THESE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    So, please add to the list of when I come visit next that I want to ride the ferris wheel, get a snowcone, slide down the waterslide at your pool, and go to this store. Thank you very much!

    We have a five below next to Target. It’s a good place to get cheap craft activities for the kids. We’ve made some stepping stones from there. I didn’t buy it. It was a birthday gift for Murphy at a birthday party. I appreciated that gift more than the two obviously regifted ones. One was a lunch box and the other was a peg hammer toy for a one year old. This was when he turned four.
