Books are fantastic gifts for kid’s birthdays, baby showers, christmas, adult birthdays, etc. We do love a good used book store, but many situations call for a brand new book.
Around last year, we got a new store in Nashville (technically Madison) called Ollie’s. It’s kinda your run-of-the-mill discounty store like Big Lots. Most of their pricing is mediocre with the exception of their book section…it’s amazing!
You know lots of new books can set you back $8, $15, even up to $25 for some nice big ones. And mamas, we gotta buy books!
Ollie’s has a huge section right as you enter. Coloring books, craft box kits, cook books, Bibles, character books, this is pretty much book heaven for my 3 and 5 year old. And prices that this mama can deal with 😉
A few books and prices from our trip:
Just note that the “regular price” is from the tag on the book, the price may vary on Amazon/Target/Walmart etc.
Wipe Clean: Picture Puzzles: Let’s Learn Activities Ollie’s Price: $2.99 (regular $8.99)
These dry erase books are great for preschool learning. And they wipe clean, so multiple kids can use them multiple times. We always use Magic Erasers for cleaning them off.
Peppa Pig Adventures with Peppa (Giant Coloring Book) Ollie’s Price: $1.99 (regular $5.00)
The birthday party we were shopping for was Peppa themed, so this book was a great find.
Disney Frozen Color the Magic Ollie’s Price: 3.99 (regular $16.99)
What 3 year old girl doesn’t need a giant Frozen coloring book?
Nickelodeon Super Paint Book Ollie’s Price: $3.99 (reg $12.99)
Another book for the birthday present. Our friend loves Nickelodeon shows, so this was a perfect fit.
Doc Mcstuffins – I Can Brush My Teeth! Ollie’s Price: $3.99 (regular $9.98)
These books with sounds and songs are always so fun (but can get pricey!). Pretty good deal at Ollie’s today.
Brainy Book of Handwriting (Brainy Books) Ollie’s Price: $2.99 (regular $12.99)
Not my “ideal” handwriting practice but definitely a great deal for someone trying to homeschool on the cheap. We are gonna keep it on the bookshelf for a backup busy work plan or for younger sister to practice letters.
Pumpkin Cookbook Ollie’s Price: $3.99 (regular 10.99)
Just thinking ahead for fall and all things pumpkin
Taste of Home Make It Freeze It: 295 Make-Ahead Meals that Save Time & Money Ollie’s$2.99 (regular price marked down to $4.98)
I’m always down for new freezer meal ideas, couldn’t pass this one up.
So, I think we did pretty good at Ollie’s today. Have you checked it out? Can you share any other discount stores you love in the comments?
