#2 If you love the timeless glam gold spray paint creates, why not use it to turn boring plastic chargers into something fit for a queen?


#3 Can't find the perfect chip and dip bowl for your Super Bowl party? No worries! All you need to do is find a separate bowl and glass, put them together, et voilà — instant elevated chip and dip service!


#4 Wrapping paper can be a real pain in the you-know-what to store, but thanks to plastic garment bags that are conveniently available at most dollar stores, that's a problem you no longer have to worry about.

#5 Organize crayons by color with popsicle trays.

#6 Use wooden skewers to transform a dollar store mirror into something you'd expect to find at HomeGoods! All it takes are a couple coats of pretty spray paint to seal the deal.

#7 Manila folders + chopsticks = modern lamp.

#8 Dropcloths can be curtains.


#9 Cookie sheets are not only inexpensive, but they're also magnetic. This means they can be used to store, display, and organize a wide variety of magnetized things.

#10 I wish I could shop until I drop at Pottery Barn, but my bank account wouldn't appreciate it. If you're in the same boat, give this knock-off DIY a try using dollar store mirrors and duct tape.

#11 Cover oddly shaped kitchen items with shower caps.

#12 Skip the standard cutlery drawer organizers (you know, the ones that never seem to work for anyone) and grab a few plastic baskets from the dollar store to use instead!


#13 Like cookie sheets, hanging shoe racks can be used in a variety of ways. From storing cleaning products and snacks to beauty essentials, they're an organized penny-pincher's BFF.

#14 Give your phone the stand it deserves by cutting a hollow plastic toy in half and gluing a suction cup to the top portion of its legs.

#15 Give a plain dollar store vase a fresh new look by simply using some painter's tape and the paint color of your choice! This crafty DIYer opted for gold leaf and it looks amazing!

#16 This is such a cool, resourceful, and creative idea! Every dollar store probably carries compacts, which means this homemade mirror is totally doable, and for a great price!


#17 Cups can be custom modular storage.

#18 Premade topiary trees can be quite expensive. Seriously, the next time you're in a decor store like HomeGoods, take a look and see for yourself! Thankfully, this DIY version is here to save the day — and your bank account.

#19 The only thing you can't get from the dollar store for this hack is the waterproof silicone sealer. When you think about how much a mat like this would cost in most home improvement stores, I'm OK with that.

#20 Mirrors become little boxes with just a little help from your good old friend, the hot glue gun.


#21 The holes in old-fashioned cheese and sugar shakers are perfect for floral arrangements! A quick spray painting session is all it takes to give them a fresh, clean look.

#22 Find a microfiber towel and sew it into a Swiffer cover.

#23 Hot glue and rope are the only things you need to transform a generic dollar store trash can into the perfect coastal accent for any space.

#24 Binder clips can hold your cables.


#25 Pencil grips make crochet hooks more comfortable.
