Things You Can Definitely Buy From the Dollar Store: A Guide to Being Poor


Band-aids- You can probably get a box of 100 or so for a buck
Light Pads- Not tampons, because you really shouldn’t skimp on tampon quality, and if you have a seriously heavy flow, I would consider a sturdier brand, but for just some just-in-case panty liners or your last couple days, a 20 pack of liners for $1 is pretty sweet
Pain Relievers- it depends on how many are in the bottle and what your local prices are, so check what it costs for a big bottle at Walmart with 100 in it, vs the 25 in the dollar store bottle. It takes a little math, but sometimes it can save a lot of money to by 4 (25ct) bottles for $4 instead of 1 (100 ct) bottle for $7
Nail Polish & Makeup- If you aren’t picky about brands, Dollar stores have some good ones sometimes. LA Colors is a makeup brand that Dollar Tree sells, among other stores, and most of its makeup is pretty good. ELF is something common at dollar stores, as well, and is pretty darn good for $1-3. I would stay away from Dollar Store foundation and concealers if you haven’t tried it out before or seen good reviews though
Dishes- A dish is a dish is a dish, man. Don’t waste $50 on your first dish set after moving out of your parent’s house. It really isn’t worth it—moving for college, a new apartment every year your lease is up, roommates, parties, exploding in microwaves, soon-to-be-ex throwing them at your head and whatnot: they’re going to get trashed. When you have a steady job, your own house and want to entertain, then go to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and buy the nicest set of dishes you can find. Until then, Goodwill  and Dollar Store dishes are for you. In my opinion, it’s actually more fun to have miss-matched dishes, but if it’s not for you, you can totally buy matches from Dollar Tree. I’ve actually seen some pretty nice ones.
Books- Find something interesting? Go for it. Book is a Book is a Book. Sometimes they even have pretty good ones, it’s worth checking next time you’re in the store
Pregnancy/Ovulation Tests- It’s been proven that the cheapos are just as accurate as the $10 apiece ones. If you have a late period or are feeling paranoid, don’t waste huge money on name brands.
Food- Dollar stores have really evolved when it comes to food. Some even have frozen sections! Be careful, as sometimes the almost empty boxes are actually MORE MONEY per oz. but all in all, you can get some good deals if you look for them. Keep an eye on expiration dates though—there is a reason it’s in the dollar store. Do NOT buy spices from discount stores! If it’s a name brand, that’s fine, but the cheapo brands make spice “mixes” and “Blends” that are usually full of salt to make them cheaper to produce—this is unhealthy for you because if you are seasoning something and want more flavor, you use more spice mix, but you’re adding more salt. Total high sodium risk
• Cleaning Supplies: It all depends on what you can find, of course. But dryer sheets, sponges, toilet bowl cleaner, etc. are all pretty standard and aren’t going to be very different if you spend $1 on it or $10. If you buy one and it doesn’t work for you, or feels ineffective then spring for a more expensive version, but the cheap is always worth a try.
Candles + Incense: some of them actually smell pretty good and you can find a good deal every once in a while. They have pretty nice candle holders sometimes, as well

Things you SHOULDN’T buy from the dollar store
• Spices: As noted earlier, Spice “mixes” usually contain a lot of salt and other filler, so when you go to add more seasoning for more flavor, you just end up with more salt. It’s really unhealthy, over all, and being a low-income or likely in college person can already put you at risk for unhealthy eating. Spring for the real stuff, I promise it’s worth it
• Office/School Supplies: Okay, this may just be personal experience, but I have to be honest, I have not had any kind of luck with pens, pencils, or even the paper. A lot of the notebooks are actually cheaper at a regular store, especially in the fall, and it’s better to stock up on $.20 each then than pay $1 per notebook later. Your individual stores may have better options, but I’ve never found discounted office things (especially pens, ugh!) to be worth the slightly lower price once you factor in the ease with which they break, how quickly they run out of ink and whatnot.
Razors: No. Just, just don’t do it—your skin will thank me later
• Candy: most small snack and candy items are old, from bad batches, or are mostly empty boxes—as well as usually being overpriced. If you need your chocolate to indulge, do it right and spend the same, if not less, amount of money on better candy.
Anything you find questionable: use your gut. It something seems too good to be true, or doesn’t feel right, don’t bother with it. Use your judgement!

I feel like I should name this .. The Room of Much? The Room of Happy? The room where I try and cram all my shit into and fuck anybody who goes ‘OH MY GOD WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU’ ?

It’s like the ultimate acid test in an relationship - bring a man into this room and if  he doesn’t run away screaming he’s a keeper. 

Anyhow. This is where the arts happen.  I might make a video. Photos don’t really capture the epileptic glory of all the color and… stuff. 

College Cleaning List & Guide

So I made this cause I think a lot of people have trouble finding a groove when cleaning their apartment or dorm room. It’s super important to do cause dirty dorm rooms are why everyone has to get their meningitis shot before school. Here is what I recommend doing. At most it takes 45 minutes but usually it will take me around 25 minutes to do all of this in a standard sized double, so there’s really no reason not to.

You are doing both yourself and your roommate a disservice when you don’t clean your room. Also! No one wants to be the homie with the stinky room, so below I’ve added a list of cleaning supplies and a step by step guide on how you can keep your room inhabitable and reduce your risk of getting sick during the year.

-Lysol All-Purpose Disinfecting Wipes

-Clorox Bleach in a Spray Bottle*

-Glade Plug-In

-Dust Pan & Broom

-Stick Vacuum

-Sponge

-Dish Soap

-Paper Towels

-Toilet Scrubber (You can find a cheap one at a dollar store)*

-Swiffer Wet Jet/Dirt Devil Wet Spray Mop

-Fabuloso if you get the Dirt Devil (Green Apple scent is my personal favorite)

-MicroFiber cloth or a Swiffer Duster

-Febreeze Fabric Freshener

-Rubber Gloves (Optional)

-Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaner in a bottle (Optional)*

*if you have a bathroom

So heres the dealio kiddos!

Step 1: Make your bed! Shake out any blankets or throws and let any debris on them fall to the ground. Put any dirty plates or cutlery to the side and out of the way, or stick them in your sink if you have one.

Step 2: Start with your microfiber cloth/duster or wipes and start wiping down every surface. If you have crumbs on a desk or chair feel free to wipe them onto the ground we will get them next.

Step 3: Grab your Vacuum and/or Broom and dustpan and start getting all of that debris off your floor. You will be surprised how much dust, crumbs and miscellaneous items there are. Sometimes I vacuum and then sweep just to make sure I get any grains of sand or dirt stuck in corners out, cause I don’t like the feeling of it sticking to my feet, or getting in my bed, cause then it’s gritty.

Step 4: Grab your mop and start wet mopping all over the place. This will make the place smell so nice and get any sort of thing stuck to the ground that you missed. The nice thing about the Dirt Devil spray mop is you can add any cleaner you want and just stick the pad in the washing machine when you need to clean it as opposed to the wet jet, where you need to buy pads and cleaner cartridges.

Step 5: Febreeze over your bed, febreeze over your roommates bed (make sure they aren’t allergic to febreeze), febreeze your chair if it has fabric. Basically Febreeze any fabric in the room.

Now! You’re basically done. If you have a bathroom, repeat the steps above and additionally:

Cleaning your Shower: Remove any items from your shower. Get gloves, paper towels, and clorox bleach spray. Spray the Clorox Bleach on the plastic part of your shower curtain and then wipe down with paper towels. Spray all over the inside of the shower and wait 2 minutes. Turn the shower on and let it rinse off anything it can reach. Turn off the shower and wipe down anything it didn’t reach.

Cleaning your Toilet: Lift the seats of the toilet. Get the toilet bowl cleaner or spray bleach, toilet scrubber, rubber gloves, and paper towels/disinfectant wipes. Use the toilet bowl cleaner, or the spray bleach to coat the inside of the toilet with cleaner. Grab your scrubber and give it a good scrub. Flush! Now you can use the disinfectant wipes or the spray bleach and paper towels to wipe down the seats, back and handle of the toilet.

Cleaning your dishes: Get your sponge, rubber gloves, and dish soap. Let your plates and cutlery soak in hot water for 2 minutes, if you don’t have a stopper you can let the hot water run over them. Put dish soap on your sponge and start scrubbing those dishes under warm water. When you’re done with cleaning an item, wipe them dry with a paper towel or regular towel and put them to the side. You can also set up some paper towels on a surface and lay them on there to dry while you continue washing. When you’re done washing the dishes, lift every item off the sink and use the same sponge to wash down the sink and rinse it with water. Now you’ve also cleaned your sink!

Things people forget to clean: microwave, mini fridge, desk surface, door handles, windows.

Other helpful tips:

Once you’ve cleaned it fully(I do this every week or every other week) you can mop your floor quickly every day or every other day to keep it grit free. If you see dirt or feel it, just sweep or mop it up; it’ll make the next big clean easier.

Change/Wash your sheets every 1-2 weeks, especially if you have sensitive skin! Dirty shams can give you acne.

When using bleach be careful! A) it can ruin your clothes and B) it is an irritant so avoid getting it on your skin. If you do, wash it off as soon as possible.

Good Luck!

Hi everyone!! Today I will be sharing with you how I organize all of my school stuff in my binder.

This is the first thing you see when you open up my binder. It’s a simple dashboard, like I usually do.

It’s inside a sheet protector, in which I put any handouts I am given in class that are not hole punched. I also keep a few post its attached to the back of it, just in case (see below).

When I get home, I will take the class handouts, hole punch them and put them in the correct divider. 

Speaking of dividers, here is how I organize my binder’s contents:

- one divider for each class

- inside each divider, I keep the class syllabus in the front (see picture above)

Since I’m showing you my Pre-Classical History tab, I will explain exactly how I organize for this class.

So after the syllabus, I have the very first thing our professor gave us, which is the map of the Ancient Near East. I organize everything chronologically, as you will see.

It also has a map of Egypt on the back, because that was the first civilization we studied. 

After the map, I have my notes from the first class, which were typed. I decided to handwrite instead of typing my notes right after the first class, because I felt like I wasn’t retaining much information. So below is a picture of my first handwritten notes for this class, right after the notes from the first class.

I always put the date before I start my notes, and I write the date on every handout, so that I know where to put it when I hole punch it at home. 

Below is a quick video to help you see how my notes are organized:

As you can see, I write the date first, then I take my notes, put the handouts from the class next to the notes, and then in the next class I’ll write the date and do the same thing.

After we were done with the history of Egypt, we took the test and started another unit: Mesopotamia. So the teacher gave us a map of Mesopotamia, which I put right next to the notes I took when we started learning about this civilization (see below).

So this is basically how I organize my papers inside the dividers. 

Also, about the dividers, you might have noticed I don’t have all the tabs in this binder:

I only have 4/6 tabs, and one of them is for loose leaf paper. This is because I have another binder at home, in which I keep the dividers of the classes I don’t have on that day. This means on the binder I take with me I will only carry the classes I have on that day. Why would you carry stuff you don’t need, am I right?

This is the binder I keep at home. It’s way larger because this will hold everything from this semester when it ends.
I have a big binder for each of my semesters in college because you never know when past notes or tests will come in handy.


There are also days in which I need to take my laptop with me to school, and I don’t have a backpack, I just carry a normal purse with me, so the laptop AND the binder would fill up my bag. In days like these, I will take a folder with me (see below).

The mint one only has one compartment. I use it for days when I only have one class, but you can definitely use it for more than one class and use page flags to separate them.

The pink one has two little pockets, so I use each one for a different class.

What I take with me is:

  • the last 2-3 pages of notes from the class, to look back on if needed
  • any worksheets you might be asked to solve in class (my Spanish teacher gave us like 30 of these at the beginning of the year, and we solve one pretty much in every class, so I know to take them with me)
  • maps, texts, Powerpoint slides, and any other materials related to what you’re learning about
  • loose leaf paper

This is what the pink folder looked like when I took it with me on Friday. I didn’t have any classes, but I did have to work on a presentation. I took my laptop with me, and in the folder I put a document I needed to analyse, some loose leaf paper and my page flags to bookmark the book I’m basing the presentation on.

So yeah, that’s basically it!! I hope you guys liked this post, and that it helps you get organized for school. Let me know if you have any questions. Love you!! 💕

-WHATS IN MY PENCIL CASE-

  1. Pentel Hi-Polymer Eraser 
  2. Stabilo Point 88 Finerliners 
  3. Pentel Twist-Erase GT Pencil 0.7
  4. Zebra Mildliners
  5. Uni-ball Signo Pen
  6. Paper Mate Flair Felt Tip Pen

Well maybe for some people school started last week but still I hope this post it’s helpful. I had a lot of experiences with backpacks through my highschool years and now in college/ university.

For me the most comfortable way of carrying all my necessities is a backpack and not a bag, here is why:

- Backpack are comfortable and have so much more space
- They come in all shape and sizes and are customizable.
- Easy to wash and a little less expensive.
- No pain on your shoulder or arm because of the heaviness of a bag.

Now for the reason of the post, this for me are the essential things you should have:

- Notebook/iPad: for taking notes and searching in class.

-Journal: for the important dates and thoughts.

-Stationary: Pens (Stabilo, Pilot G2, Muji, Zebra, Staedtler), markers (Sharpie, Zebra Mildliner), washi tape, erasers, sharper, mini stapler and pencils.

- Book of preference: this will help to kill time through your free periods. (Mine right now is Inferno by Dan Brown)

-Water and energy: Remember to carry your bottle of water and some snacks for boosting your energy like energy bars (personally I like Nature Valley), blueberries, cranberries, some cookies, etc…

- Bag of makeup: I’m no the kind of persons who likes to have this item on her bag but it’s a life saver for emergencies, in it I have: compact powder, the lipstick or lipbalm, mascara, Kleenex and tiny container (like those round of Nivea for creams or balm) with Vaseline, this odd container with the Kleenex will help you if you have a smudge mascara and even if you made a mistake with your brows.

-Headphones: for studying, canceling noise or just simply killing time with good music or audio book.

This is what i carry on my backpack, believe me it’s so much easier if your use one and not a bag for example: I have a friend that loves her Nine West giant bag and use it for school but she complains about the weight of her things (laptop included), yes bag are pretty and make you look girly but they are a pain in the ass and you don’t want pain or marks on your shoulders specially on those long days.

So my advice girls is if you don’t feel comfortable with a backpack like Jansport or Kanken types find a Instagram one like this ones, comfort doesn’t mean ugly.

Nursey Week Day 2

Prompt: Simplicity

Also on AO3 (with translations)

Nursey had a long day. He had four classes back to back on Tuesdays and Thursdays this semester. He was ready to bail on his plans to paint and write at her studio (he’d taken to being her canvas when Shitty was busy with law school). He storms through the Haus, chucking his bag next to the staircase as he grabbed some custard pie from the fridge.  

He cut himself a slice as he hears chattering coming down the stairs.

“Mira, puto,” he hears Whiskey protest.

He hears someone, presumably Tango, snort. “No, lo único que quiero mirar es su chiquito culo corriendo hasta Murder Stop N Shop por mis refrescos.“

"En sus sueños, mi rey,” Whiskey chirps.

Nursey chuckles at their back and forth, garnering the attention of the tadpoles as they pass the kitchen. They stare at Derek quizzically.

Whiskey turns to Tango, “I knew it. I fucking knew he heard us on the bus last week.”

Tango shrugs, “¿quieres un desfile?”

“You see what I put up with?” Whiskey addresses Derek. “Pinche cabrón,” he mutters.

Nursey smirks, nodding sympathetically.

“¿Oye, es Puertorriqueño o Dominicano o Cubano o que?” Tango inquires.

“Cuban,” he admits awkwardly, “or my mom is.”

“¿Puedes hablar español?”

Nursey blushes, “well yea, but my accent’s shit.”

Whiskey and Tango give each other a look, quickly ushering Nursey into the living room.  They gently push him down onto the couch, flipping the TV on.
