Sometimes things that frustrate you, turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Take today for instance. I was going to make a maple pumpkin cheesecake, but I can’t find my springform pan anywhere! I scratched my head a few times and decided that I would just tweak it a bit and make individual ones (in a muffin pan), but I really need cupcake cups if i’m going to do that – which I don’t have.

So, I threw on some clothes and went to Dollar General. My plan was ONLY to get the cupcake cup. A quick in and out stop. Little did I know that there would be a fabulous Dollar General summer clearance sale going on! There was a HUGE table with various products at 70% off! Prices start at just $0.30!

So get this.. I have always loved fiesta-ware. Long before it was even popular. Not only did I find fiesta-ware for cheap… they had ramekins! SCORE! Only $0.30 a piece! I bet I can use them to make the cheesecakes, instead of my muffin pan!

You HAVE to check your local Dollar General! Here’s what I got:

  • (8) Fiesta-ware ramekins
  • (5) Fiesta-ware canisters
  • (2) Fiesta-ware tortilla warmers
  • (1) Set of wooden serving pieces

This was a retail value of $72 but I only spent $13.23 (including tax)! I’m super excited!

I’m not in need of any lawn care stuff but for those of you who are, that too is 70% off! I took a quick photo so you could see a little bit of what they have. There’s more than I could fit in the photo. Lots more! It’s a great time to stock up for next year.

So, throw on some shoes and head to your local Dollar General. Remember, the early bird catches the sale.
