Do you need another mug? Probably not. But do you want another colorful mug with a matching lid and straw? Because Five Below has a new collection of springtime mugs on shelves that we have a feeling you are not going to want to miss this season. Shoppers are attempting to convince themselves that they, too, don’t need another mug — but they’re running to Five Below anyways.

Originally posted on TikTok by @litascutetiktok, Five Below has a selection of adorable ceramic mugs on shelves right now that come with matching lids and plastic straws, making them the perfect cup for your hot and cold beverages this spring. The four captured on video include a sage green mug with red and pink strawberries, a pink mug with cowboy boots that says “let’s go girls,” a yellow mug with leaves that says “don’t worry, be happy,” and a lavender mug with peace signs and flowers that says “have a good day.”

Shoppers are ecstatic about this latest Five Below find, saying that they are “running” to their local Five Below to snag one themselves, and the mugs are “so cute.” One TikTok user writes, “Guess I’m dipping into my grocery budget.” Some are even commenting about how these mugs keep selling out, and they can’t seem to find the specific color they want.

However, other shoppers are sharing their frustration on the price. At a place like Five Below, where the prices used to be guaranteed to be $5 and under, these mugs are priced just above it at $5.55. This isn’t exactly news; the store announced an increase in prices back in 2019, and since then has added a range of new products at slightly higher prices, like the popular $10 portable blender or a selection of kitchen storage finds under $10. Discount stores such as Five Below and Dollar Tree have increased price thresholds in an effort to broaden the selection of products on shelves.
