If you’re a bargain shopper, then you probably already love the Dollar Tree deals you find in their stores. But Dollar Tree online shopping is a totally different story. You’re required to buy huge quantities of products in order to get them delivered from Dollar Tree, but who really needs a case of 24 spatulas?!

While some items don’t make sense to buy from Dollar Tree online shopping, I found a bunch of items that are definitely worth it to buy in bulk. Here’s the thing, though: they charge shipping fees on Dollar Tree online orders, and that can get pricey — quickly. To get around Dollar Tree’s shipping fees, just choose “Free In-Store Pickup” at checkout or use Instacart instead.

Here’s what you can grab in bulk from


1. Fill your cooler with Dollar Tree drinks for your kid’s sports team and pay just $1.25 each.

Wanna be the team hero? Order a case of sports drinks from for your kid’s next sporting event (or the next few dozen events). You could also buy energy drinks and energy shots for the team, but other parents might give you a dirty look.

2. Stock your home with toilet paper and paper towels on the cheap.

We’re all still recovering from the great toilet paper shortage of 2020. But the good news is that toilet paper’s everywhere now. The 12-pack of Harmony bathroom tissue has a single-purchase option for Dollar Tree online shopping, so that one doesn’t require a bulk order.

The beauty of buying kids’ birthday gift bag stuff in bulk is that you’re set for multiple parties and/or multiple kids. You’ve got all the essentials like bubbles, stickers, toys, and even name-brand play slime.

Is your cabinet full of random glasses and plates that make it look like you’re still in college? Maybe it’s time for a refresh. And with Dollar Tree’s cheap prices, you can afford to replace anything that eventually breaks or cracks.

I’ve already told you all about my favorite Dollar Tree wedding hacks. But I definitely recommend picking up some wedding essentials in bulk like centerpieces, candles, and balloons. You can even use little photo frames to show your guests their table numbers.

6. Restock your hangers, socks, and anything else you can’t get enough of.

I can’t be the only one who’s always short one sock or hanger. While there are some household essentials you don’t need to buy in bulk (48 bottles of mouthwash, really?), I know there’s stuff that’s always helpful to stock up on for a rainy day.
