EASY HOLIDAY RECIPE! {Dollar Tree Ambrosia Salad}

If you are going to a party (or hosting one) this is a fabulous recipe you should definitely try.  There are lots of variations on this dessert salad, but this one is by far my favorites of the many I have tried.  A huge thanks to my friend Sarah to sharing it with me 🙂

Wanted to share this deal with you!  Recently I shared this video with how I laminate on the cheap.  My laminator was $30, so this Scotch Thermal Laminator 2 Roller System (TL901) is 50% off and rings in at just $16 (it says it retails for $80, but you can find it pretty much anywhere for $30).  Either way, this is a killer deal if you are looking for a laminator!

Also, you can score Scotch Thermal Laminating Pouches for 50% off…just $9.94!  (They retail for almost $25!)  Would make an awesome Christmas gift, or an investment in your home organization.
