Reader’s Week Spring 2007: Megan Shares Her Love of the Dollar Tree and Big Lots


Fashion is my passion, but being a college student working at a local bookstore does not offer me much leeway in my budget, which is why I’m addicted to bargain shopping.

Megan Loves Her Dollar Tree and Big Lots stores

My two favorite places for beauty bargains is the: Dollar Tree and Big Lots. The Dollar tree is a gold mine for beauty steals. Every major brand or product can be found at Dollar Tree and of course it is only a dollar. You leave feeling guilt free because all you dropped was a couple bucks.

My second favorite spot is Big Lots. Their health and beauty section is to die for. I can spend hours just looking around at all the amazing cheap products they have. Everything I buy is $10 and under and the products of course are name brand so I know I’m getting an excellent product.

One of my beauty tips is layering: layering lip gloss, laying eye shadows, layering blush. When I put on my blush a do a swipe of blush than a swipe of bronzer than another swipe of bronzer. It gives a great sun glowed look. I mix liquid bronzer and foundation and that also gives a great sun glowed look.
