$1 Julep Nail Polish

If you LOVE nail polish as much as I do then you will want to keep reading!!! Right now over on you can score 1 nail polish for just $1 and $0 shipping! I have never personally tried this brand before but I have read great things about it. Regular price on this nail polish is $14, so this is a great deal! There are 4 colors to choose from purple, sparkly navy, mauve, and light blue. Once you choose your color you will need to enter BLACKFRIDAY in the promo code spot. Enjoy!

Yay for Target!!

Anytime I wake up early (before everyone else in the house) I usually go shopping! My go to store is normally Target. I can always find something on sale. I have been looking for a printer for a few days now and unfortunately had no luck finding something that was affordable and not made by HP. At Target today they had an Epson printer on sale for $39.99! The ink for the printer cost a few bucks more than my HP ink normally did but really I am just DONE with HP.

Since I knew I had PLENTY of time before anyone in my house woke up, I decided to look at few other things. I had received some coupons from Target via text message and a few in the mail. I wanted to see if I could spot any good deals to pair with those coupons and of course I did!!

I had a coupon for $1 off of 4 Up and Up school supplies that I used to get 2 rulers and 2 24 packs of crayons for FREE since each item was $.25! They also had glue and glue sticks for $.30 so still pretty cheap after the $1 coupon. I had another coupon for $1 off ground beef and to my surprise there were several ground beef packs with a $2 off coupon right on the front. So I was able to get 1lb of ground beef for only $1.19! Another mobile coupon was $2 off a bath towel. I was able to pick up the Room Essentials bath towel for $1.75 with that coupon. I had been wanting to try this towel for a LONG time and I am so pleased with it. It dries really quickly and is super soft. I can't wait to see how it feels after a few washes.

If you want to get the Target coupons all you have to do is TEXT  "HELP" to "827438" or you can go to the Target mobile site on your computer and put in your info.

Did you snag any great deals this weekend?

Awesome Sams Club Deal

UPDATE: You  still have time to buy this! Offer ends on March 7!!
I have been considering getting a Sams Club membership for some time. I wasn't sure if I should choose Sams Club, BJ's or Costco; they are all about the same distance away. Well when I saw this AMAZING deal on Living Social I knew now was the time to try Sams Club out. Anyway, right now over at Living Social you can get a 1 year Sams Club membership, $20 gift card, and several coupons for FREE items for only $45!!! That is the price of a membership but you get so much more.

Be sure to sign up and shop through EBates for 2% cash back or ShopAtHome for 4% cash back.

Have you tried any of these companies? Which is your favorite?

My Bargains at CVS!

Did I mention I went shopping this morning? Here is what I bought at CVS on 1/27/2013! Right now when you spend $20 on select products you get $5 back in ECB. I did that deal for the coffee. Here is how it broke down.

I bought:
1 Tide $5.94
2 Starbucks DoubleShot Espressos 2 for $10
2 Starbucks Frappuccinos 2 for $10
1 TRESemme Shampoo $.99
1 TRESemme Conditioner $.99
1 Dove Trial Size Deodorant $1.27

Starting cost was $29.19.
I used:
$1.50/1 Tide Detergent, exp. 1/31/13 (P&G 12/30/12)
$2/2 TRESemme Shampoo or Conditioner from the CVS Coupon Machine
$1.50 Any Deodorant purchase from the CVS coupon Machine
I will also get $3 back into my Endorse account.
I got $6 ECB's. $5 for the coffee and $1 for the Tide.

Total cost: $15.19

Another to thing to note about the image are the StayFree items. I did buy those today with a rain check! My store ran out 2 weeks ago when they had the sale. I was able to use the rain check for the BOGO sale, the BOGO coupons and I had received a $2/2 StayFree or Carefree products. This allowed me to get 2 small packs and 2 big packs for $.50 since the coupon had a limit of $4.49. These and the ones made by Always that are Ultra Thin are my absolute fave so I was super happy about this deal. Always make sure to ask for a rain check so you don't miss out. Just be cautious about when your coupons expire.

Did you score any sweet bargains this week? I would love to hear about them!

My Bargains at Target

I went Target this morning to return a pair of super comfy night pants that I know would be too short if I washed them. :( I decided I would have a look around and see what was left of the Target Toy Clearance and see what else I could find. Boy am I glad I did! I found the Aquadoodle for only $8 and the Hello Kitty slippers for only $5. They had tons of other shoes and slippers on sale for 70% off too. The bloom box on the right was for some butterfly wings I bought for my daughter. I had seen them before and had been thinking about buying them ever since. I am so glad they still had this pair today for only $3!! As soon as Zoey saw them she wanted to play with them.

Finally the SHOES! Let me start by saying I am NOT a shoe person. I have tennis shoes, rain boots, black cute boots, crappy black dress flats, and flip flops. I recently got accepted for an internship in another department at my job and thought I may need to dress up a tad more since I will be working with everyone now. (I know that might not make much sense, since you don't work with me.) Anyway the zebra flats were only $5!! I have been "breaking" them in all day!!

Did you find anything awesome at your Target?

My Bargains at Walmart

I was super excited to find that my Walmart STILL had Xmas stuff! I got the bows on the left for $.10, the ones on the right for $.50, the cookie cutters for $.30 and the Crayola Dry Erase Number book for $1.25! They also had tons of wrapping paper for $.50 and some multi packs for only $1. I did buy a few rolls of wrapping paper. My mom likes Thomas Kinkade and they had a nice size roll for only $.80! They tons of toys available too!

Does your Walmart still have Xmas stuff on sale? Have your found anything good?

20% off at Big Lots!

On Sat 1/26 customers with a Big Lots rewards card can get 20% off of their purchase. I love having a Big Lots just around the corner. I purchased my kitchen island from Big Lots the last time they offered the 20% off. It is just like the one below except for mine has a stainless steel top. Another great thing about Big Lots is that they tend to have holiday clearance several weeks after other stores so there is always a good deal to be found.

There are a few exclusions to what the coupon can be used on but not many. Eggs, dairy, and calling cards are just a few if you would like to see the full list make sure to check it out on the Big Lots website.

Bounty Paper Towels on Sale at Staples

UPDATE: My store was out of stock and I was not able to purchase any. I hope you guys were able to!
I know I just posted about the self inking stamp at Staples but I also wanted to share something else I am going to buy from Staples this week. This week they have a coupon out for an 8 pack of Bounty paper towels for only $4.00. This makes each roll only $.50 but you should also be able to use the $0.25/1 Bounty Towels, exp. 1/31/13 (P&G 12/30/12) coupon to get this for only $.47 per roll! My stock up price is $.50 so this is perfect and I am almost out of paper towels! :) Staples released several other coupons this week, you can check out the Staples coupons here. Make sure to stop by before 1/26 to snag this deal.

In general paper towels and toilet paper cost should be calculate by the square foot or some sort of length measurement. I haven't quite gotten to that point. If you have a stock price for these items let me know.

Customized Stamp $.99!

UPDATE: Staples is not honoring the free shipping. I received an email stating that I had to call them and pay shipping or my order would be cancelled.
I just had to share this with you guys. I love all things involving office supplies! Right now over at Staples you can get a customer self inking stamp for only $.99. You can even get FREE shipping if you upload your own image. My total came to $1.04 including tax. We just moved into our first home in August 2012, so I got an address stamp. The customization options are endless. A few other uses are "this book belongs to...", you could put your child's teachers name, "Good Job!" you can use it for presents by doing a "TO:...... FROM:..." kind of think and if you have not found a permanent settlement just yet you could always just put your names on it and hand write your address.

You can also shop through Ebates for 4% cash back, ShopatHome for 3% cash back or Upromise for 5% cash back!

Be sure to come back here and let me know what design you put on your stamp. Here is what I put, of course it has my actual address though.

My Bargains @ CVS! 1-13

Sorry, I didn't take a picture of this one, but I thought I would share my shopping trip for CVS the week of 1/13 to 1/19. Literally just as I had pulled into the parking spot I received an email from CVS letting me know I had gained $5 in ECB's for purchasing $50 worth of Beauty products! Talk about perfect timing. I did use the $5 ECB's today but I don't like to include ECB's in my total because I consider them "cash". By that I mean that when I plan my shopping trips I subtract my ECB's from what I pay at that time. When I use the ECB's later it is like "cash" because I already calculated the discount when I chose to buy the item that gave me the ECB's. Make sense? Anyway, here is what I did.

I bought:
2 -12 packs of Scott's 1000 Toilet Tissue
2 -Packs of Huggies 1 Snug and Dry and 1 Little Movers
Coupons I used:
-$1 off Scott 1000 Tissue, exp. 2/23/13 (SS 01/13/13 R)
-$1.50/1 Huggies Diapers, exp. 2/9/13 (SS 01/13/13 R)
-$2/1 Huggies Little Movers or Little Snuggies Diapers, exp. 2/9/13 (SS 01/13/13 R)
-I will also get back $5 in my Endorse account

OOP was $34.96 I got a $10 CVS cash card and $5 back into my Endorse account.
Total: $19.96

From the magic coupon machine (as Collen from Hip2Save says) I got a coupon for $2/2 Carefree or Stayfree items and $2.50 off any Hair Color purchase. Anyone have any good ideas for the hair color coupon?

My Bargains @ Target

I went to Target looking for the BIG drop in toy clearance. Should be going to 70% off any day now. I have my eye on a few Thomas the Train toys. It hasn't happened yet :( but here are some of the great bargains I found.

   $7.72 =$1.93*4 Jimmy Dean Delights
 -$8.00 =4*$2/1 Jimmy Dean Delights Product, exp. 2/17/13 (RP 01/06/13)
= -$.28 -Somehow Target allowed the overage this time.

   $5.49 1 Starbucks Doubleshot
- $3.00 into my Endorse account

$2.68 Pack of toddler socks with the rubber spots on the bottom.

Total was just $4.89 which is less than the cost of the Starbucks drinks!!

Did you find any awesome savings this week? I would love to hear about the deals you found at Target or anywhere else.

I went back today 1-17, and the toy clearance had dropped to 70%! Thanks to Totally Target for the heads up this morning. I was able to score about $150 worth of stuff for about $38! Also, not in the picture I was able to find 3 different pairs of night pants for about $3 each. :)
