Some of us dream about having someone else wake up with the baby at 3AM or discovering all of the dishes have already been washed. Well, over here at Babble we also daydream about spending countless uninterrupted hours in the dollar store.

From greeting cards to kitchen sponges, there’s rarely something the dollar store hasn’t been able to provide us with. However, our favorite hobby (if you can call it that) is scouring the aisles of the store for potential crafting items. It’s true — you can take a seemingly ordinary item and turn it into something beautiful!

As proof, here are 12 of our favorite dollar store hacks:

1. Jewelry Organizer
