by J. Money on Friday, May 9, 2008

Top 100 BargainsThat’s right, I’m venturing off to find the TOP 100 bargains for a dollar or under!

I was staring at my dollar-a-day cup the other day and got to thinking – what on earth will i do w/ all of those $1 bills? In a perfect world i’d like to stick with my million dollar plan, but I also can’t help but play the “what if” game.

  If I could, what would I buy with all those George Washingtons? It got me thinking…there are a LOT of great bargains out there for a dollar or less. We’ve got double cheesburgers, lottery tickets, a whole bunch of things! I started listing them out, and then wondered if I could hit 100…or even better, the TOP 100 bargains out there for $1 or less!

Not to kill the suspense, but unfortunately i didn’t make it yet. But that’s why I have you guys :) I need help! Not all my bargains made the cut (like playing cards and uniball pens), but I did hit the 20 30 mark.

What have I missed? Here are a few places that I look for these sort of deals, maybe they’ll help conjure up a few ideas for ya:

- Target’s $1.00 bins
- Michael’s $1.00 bins
- Dollar Store (the REAL ones, not the cheaters)
- Vending machines
- $1 menus at McDonald’s, Wendy’s, etc. (thx Carrie!)
