These 7 items are worth the dollar or two

Just because you find yourself short on cash doesn’t mean you can’t afford a few cool tech toys – so long as you consider your local “dollar store.”

As evidenced in this Surf Report column – where we look at such deals once or twice a year – you might just be surprised what you can buy for loose change in your pocket or purse.

Sometimes it’s a gadget, like a clamp-on LED light for reading in bed, while at other times it’s a low-tech accessory for your smartphone. “Case” in point: a fitted polycarbonate or silicone case for your iPhone or Android phone might cost you upwards of $50 at a big box store, but as low as $1 or $2 at places such as Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, 99 Cents Only Stores or Dollarama (in Canada).
