What brought you here? To this very blog post? Maybe you just want to get out of your bubble of a college town for a weekend, far from frat parties and failed exams. Maybe your study abroad budget is maxed out, and you can no longer afford to backpack through Barcelona or galavant around Greece.

The simple fact that you keep denying to yourself is, there are plenty of places right under your nose that offer as much memory-making as any other destination. Pittsburgh is one of them.

Dollar stores are often overlooked for necessities. It’s time to move past that! There’s a local gem, right here in Athens, Ohio.
