    What To Skip

    Going to Five Below for your Fourth of July celebration shopping is one of the best moves that you can make. Lots of their products are quality and on-theme and coupled with a price that cannot be beat. That being said, not everything is worth picking up.

    “While Five Below offers a great range of products, some items are better purchased elsewhere for quality and durability,” Lysa said.

    “Skip items like electronics and high-use kitchen gadgets, as their longevity might not match those from other retailers,” she said.
