Cool, low cost cost swag ideas


Recommended Posts

From My Perspective:

Dollar Tree Items I am likely to buy for swag:

  • Umbrella
  • Ponchos
  • Gloves
  • Ice Scraper
  • Batteries
  • Kid Safe Outlet Covers
  • Rulers
  • Pencils
  • Pens
  • Expanding Towels (new thanks to a poster here!)
  • Bandaids
  • Hair Clips and Barrettes
  • Disposible Gloves
  • DvDs (generally duplicates I have at home)

My Children (ages 6 and 8)

  • Small Dolls
  • Legos
  • Beautiful Pens
  • Polly Pocket Stuff
  • Small Action Figures
  • Cards
  • Notepads
  • Jewelry (rings and necklaces for girls)
  • Toy Animals
  • Crayons

By no means is this a complete list of what we buy every time and keep stocked, but its a list of what we have put in before and what we like to find (or at least examples of what we like to find).

I also get individual packs of hand sanitizer and leave those.

Yes, but stick with foil packets, not mini-bottles. A couple of weeks ago I got a report that one of my caches (GC150R6) had moisture inside. I was baffled, because it's a dry box, I was the last one there before the report, and the reporter said it was properly closed. When I was finally able to get to it today, it didn't take long to figure out the reason. Someone had left one of these mini-bottles of hand sanitizer, and it had leaked.


Someone else mentioned mini pens. I do that, especially since I've gone after a lot of older caches, and the pens are often dead. (Yes, I trash out the dead pens too.) Staples has their own brand of mini gel pens at about $4 per dozen, and they sometimes go on sale for $2.50/dozen.
