DOLLAR Tree has unveiled affordable bulk shopping that rivals Costco. However, one particular detail might give some buyers pause.

To get the offer, Dollar Tree customers must purchase 48 boxes for $60.
- Money tree: $0.31 per battery

- Costco: $2.13
The organizing tool is almost half price at Dollar Tree, selling for $1.25 each. These folders are great because unlike the others, you don’t have to buy them in bulk to get the best deal.
