Depending on who’s telling it, the dollar store can have a bad rap. I’ll admit I’ve been disappointed at some things that I’ve bought that failed or broke way to soon, or the quality just wasn’t what I expected. While this is true, I have found some pretty cool and often unique products there that I find quite impressive, such as this:
It’s a selfie remote! It plugs into your headphone jack and when you open your camera app (I only tested with iOS) it can take pictures or record video if you have video mode preselected before pressing it. I didn’t officially measure the cord, but I’d say it’s around three feet long. It has a nifty clip on the back so you can attach it to your clothes if you’d like. It’s like the next best thing to a selfie stick. Since it replaces pressing the volume up button to snap a shot, it can turn the volume up on your device when not in camera mode. You’ll have to turn the volume down from your device yourself though ;). I know that there are Bluetooth ones, but for $1 and the fact that the cord is a decent length, I couldn’t pass this up. What have you found at the dollar store lately that you absolutely love… or hate?
