My magnificent introduction to the Gulf Breeze Dollar Tree

Three perfect little microfiber soft sponges for only $1

I have had my first glass of Betty’s KoolAid. I fell prey to the romance of the Dollar Tree store. On our way to Gander RV in Gulf Breeze, we stopped to pick up some duct tape and foam board to enact an interior temporary repair of the big ole hole in the ceiling from loss of the exterior vent fan cover. I had taken over the dish washing chores for our galley crew and I needed a sponge and rubber gloves. I have always used the Scotch Brite scrub sponge with the cellulose sponge and green scrubber back. I found this little pack of 3 sponges for a dollar and said “that’ll do.” Little did I know these babies were going to turn out to be my new BFF.

Easy to rinse, perfect for the melamine plates she uses in the camper, and no scratches on the acrylic wine glasses, but would also tackle the residue of camp cooking skillets. The Brillo rubber gloves were also a dollar a pair, but more substantial and protective than the typical rubber gloves I use. The heavier material (thicker, and a bit stiffer) also did not fold over at the cuff and get in my way like the others can sometimes do. Both are now in my new kitchen.

Since a post about 33 1/3 cent sponges does not exactly scream “Florida!” I’ll toss in a moon shot over Fort Pickens for dessert.

    Rich loves Dollar Tree. However, they are changing their name to Dollar Plus or something like that because they are upping their prices. Dang it. I liked knowing everything was a dollar and now it will be confusing. LOL

      I read that they are going up to $1.25 due to all the increased costs. I would still say 3 sponges for $1.25 that work this well is a bargain! I also liked that they were soft and did not scratch the acrylic wine glasses or plastic plates, but would still clean the camp skillet!
