Rachel W. from Des Plaines, IL


Every month we feature one lucky Value Seekers Club member and their story so we can all get to know each other... that’s why we call it a “club”! This month’s Value Seeker is Rachel W. from Des Plaines, IL. Here’s a little bit about Rachel:

“I’ve loved Dollar Tree ever since I was in college... 10 years ago! I’m the Program Coordinator at a senior center, so I’m constantly stopping by my local Dollar Trees for party décor, prizes, snacks, and supplies. I am truly spoiled by the eight Dollar Tree locations within a 10-mile radius of my home — each store carries something different.

My favorite Dollar Tree item of all time would have to be the Mylar balloons. You’re never too old for a balloon and the $1.00 price, including helium, can’t be beat — anywhere. The selection is great and my local stores always have some ready to grab and go.

I like to amp up inexpensive brownie, cake, cookie mixes, pasta salad mixes, and pasta sauces with fresh ingredients — like walnuts to a brownie mix or fresh veggies to a salad or sauce. No one would ever know the mix came from Dollar Tree!

I joined the Value Seekers Club because I’m always looking for new ways to use Dollar Tree. I’m a big DIY person, so I really enjoy the step-by-step craft project ideas and recipes. My family, home, profession, and hobbies keep me coming back to Dollar Tree.”
