10 Things to Buy for Your Kitchen at the Dollar Store

10 Things to Buy for Your Kitchen at the Dollar Store.  Good quality, inexpensive items that make great kitchen staples. From parchment paper to tin foil, storage containers, bags and more!

Some of my most favourite kitchen items come from the Dollar Store or Dollarama! These are all things I found by accident and have now become staples in my kitchen.  Simple inexpensive items like parchment paper, tin foil, cupcake liners, soap, storage containers and bags.  I thought I’d share them here with you so you can try them out for yourself too!

10 Things to Buy for Your Kitchen at the Dollar Store

Cupcake Liners

I always buy my cupcake and muffin liners at the Dollar Store.  They’re inexpensive and come in many different colours and patterns.

Nonstick Parchment Paper Sheets and Rolls

The Dollar Store is my go-to place for parchment paper.  Here are the ones I buy:

  • Pre-Cut Silicone Parchment Paper Sheets: I really like the size of these pre-cut sheets.  They fit a cookie sheet perfectly and I can reuse them a few times.  After I bake cookies I just give the sheets a quick wipe with a damp cloth and let them dry, then use them again another day.  Sometimes during the Christmas season they will have pretty holiday patterned sheets as well.  I’ve used them here on this Cranberry Orange Loaf.
  • Parchment Paper Roll: This a great quality parchment paper.  Can’t beat the price either.
  • Cake Liners:  These parchment circular cake liners fit circle cake pans perfectly.  These are so handy, and I keep a few packages around all the time.

Foil Baking Pans

If you need foil baking pans for roasting turkey, baking pies or cakes, etc., dollar stores always have loads of these.  Dollarama has a really sturdy line of Betty Crocker foil pans that I always buy when I need them.  They’re great for barbecuing, dropping off food gifts to friends and family, they’re great for storage and really handy for camping cooking over a fire!

Dollar Store Aluminum Foil

This Betty Crocker brand aluminum foil is a great quality product. I have tried many different aluminum foils, and this is one of my favourites.  It’s strong, doesn’t rip easily and comes in 2 sizes that I like…the extra wide is great for tin foil packages on the barbecue.

Dish Soap

The Dollar Store carries many well known name brand dish soaps but at really inexpensive prices.

Plastic Kitchen Bags

  • Dollar Store ‘Ziplock’ Bags: We don’t use many ‘ziplock’ bags here anymore, as I prefer to use reusable bags, but if I need them I buy the boxes at the Dollar Store.  They’re inexpensive and good quality.
  • Kitchen Counter Compost Bags: For some reason kitchen compost bags are so expensive, but not at the Dollar Store. These are great quality, fit my kitchen counter compost bin perfectly and they’re cheap!
  • Kitchen Garbage Bags:  These are another good quality purchase.

Plastic Storage Containers, Bags and Jar Lids

  • Reusable Plastic Food Containers:  Dollar stores always have a great selection of plastic containers for storing food, and always at inexpensive prices.
  • Reusable Bags:  If you don’t want to use plastic zipper bags, most dollar stores now have a selection of reusable ones for a great price.  This package was $1.25 for 2 bags!
  • Jar Lids:  If you like making overnight oats or jars of salad, the dollar store has a great selection of plastic lids that you can use instead of the metal lids and rings.  I find these so handy to have around.

Trivets and Hot Pads

Cork pot stands and woven trivets are a really good value at the dollar store.  I especially like the cork pads and always have at least 4 on hand to put on my table at dinner time.  At a dollar each, they’re a great buy!
