Over $50 Savings from Aeropostale

I am so crazy with good deals! If I find one and I know it’s a good one, better be fast and grab it before it’s gone. Two days ago Filipinas had frenzy shopping on PS Aeropostale website due to free $10 plus free shipping deal. I was one of the lucky ones who got to use four codes and made four transactions that only cost me $1.34 for I exceeded on the minimum amount that I should order, that’s fine! Paying that very little amount for five items is way better than paying $50 or more out of pocket if I didn’t use codes for my items.

You see, I see it as a blessing in a form of clothing. They are almost free if I say it. These warm fleece pants are comfortable and feel good to the skin. Some people who have money are willing to pay that amount but I am not, even though they were on sale but they would still be too much for our pocket. Thank God for the opportunities wherein I can still shop for clothes we need but pay too little for them.

Aeropostale has done a good job shipping these items, they came very fast and also they included $30 worth of coupons for next shopping. I love it!

Shopping at Rue21 Under $8

For some Rue21 clothing store isn’t popular for them but it has become one of my shopping destinations when I go to the mall. When they say 50% off additional clearance items, it means deep discounts on their clothing. Unlike Wetseal or Forever21, I noticed that even though they say BOGO clearance items, you’d still pay at least $7 or $10 a piece which for me is deceiving.

Here is an example of what “deal” is. For a chevron print dress, originally priced at $17.97, I got it for $5, the second item is a denim vest with hood for $2. Original price was $21.97. I am glad I’ve waited purchasing a denim vest for I found such a deal for it. Total cost for two items is $7.58. I saved a whooping of $32.94 in Tuesday’s shopping trip.

I have been wanting to buy a vest, I looked elsewhere, even online stores but I just couldn’t spend so much money on a very small piece of clothing. Thank goodness Rue21 has it for a lot less! Happy shopper I am as always.

Victoria’s Secret Gift Set for $10 which I Paid Only 83 Cents Each

I love my Victoria’s Secret haul yesterday. I went to their store with 7 secret reward cards on hand and an electronic code they sent to me in my email. I lost one card, I don’t know where it is so I only bought 7 gift sets total. It cost $10 each normal price and used $10 secret reward card each transaction which only cost me 83 cents each.

I guess I went there on time before everyone else buy the gift sets. It is really cheap for the price of 83 cents, that’s literally just tax I paid for. As you can see in the photo below, each gift set containing three 60 ml bottles of fragrance mists and three 60 ml moisturizing hand and body cream. I so love love what I bought.

You might wonder what am I gonna all this? No problem. They don’t spoil, they last forever. I can very well use the moisturizing hand and body cream since it gets very cold and dry due to winter. One gift set will be given to my Jadyn’s teacher and I’ll keep the rest or send some to the Philippines. I feel like I won a little Christmas prize hehe. Thank God I was able to buy this stuff. Last year was a waste of time and money, I only bought that pink glitter mist which is $8. A lot of $2 gone wasted or I spent more on bras rather than saving some $$.

Thanksgiving Freebies at CVS This Week

Started last Sunday,23 until 29th, CVS will have several items you get for free after extrabucks. Be sure to check their online or in-store ad which ones you like to get. I grabbed 8 products but only printed 7 ecb receipts, I don’t know why that one item did not print out, it’s probably the kitkat worth $1 but I am not planning of going back to the store just for that.

I had $10 gift card on hand so I paid less than $2 for my items, I also bought Physicians Formula eye defining pencil not in picture. I rolled my ecbs and paid less out of pocket for them and still got ecbs to use next time I go to CVS. I stopped couponing four months ago but freebies like this is hard to resist.

Another great deal I got in today’s shopping, this one is from Kroger. I knew that there’s a deal for Aveeno product at that store this week and tried it. Here’s what I got, a $3 catalina and a $2 rebate at checkout51 on my phone. This cost $5.99 each, you do the math of my savings, I used (2) $1 tear pad for two bottles. I’ll go back there again on Wednesday and see if catalina is still available. So, it’s a total $7 savings for two bottles. Final price would be $2.40 each.

Free Bath and Body Works Lotion, a $12.50 Value

It is possible to score free body care at Bath and Body Works with little or no money to spend. There are many ways in order to avail promos like this online or at their store. Once you become a frequent shopper at their store, rest assured they’ll give you heaps of coupons to make you coming back to their store.

One best deal I just scored from BBW is this FREE white citrus body lotion. Through the use of a coupon “free body care any full size item” with any purchase. My idea was purchased only the smallest antibac hand sanitizer which is $1.74 with no tax. With that amount, it got me a pocket antibac and a full size lotion, amazing isn’t it?

I still got heaps of coupons left but it requires me to spend a minimum amount of money before I can have my free item, I guess I just have to pass the deal as I have no budget for that in the meantime. Besides, I already have plenty of bottles of lotions and fragrances collected throughout my couponing months. They should be enough supply until next winter season and for balik-bayan box.

Wedding Anniversary Presents for Me

My husband did not give me anything on our tenth wedding anniversary instead, he took us out to the farm where our girls had fun and dinner to the Hibachi restaurant last Sunday. It doesn’t really matter to me if there is no gift as long as he remembered to celebrate our big with us.

I asked him if we could go to DSW shoe store before dinner since I had a $20 store coupon so I could use it. He agreed with me and I took home two pairs of shoes, one that is flat open sandals and a pair of running shoes. He ended up not getting anything for he did not find any shoes he likes so I was the only one bought presents for me, haha. I like that very much.

I didn’t plan of buying another pair of running shoes but it’s hard to resist such a deal like it. Besides, the coupon says $20 off $49 purchase and if I buy just the TH flats, the coupon could not be used since my husband did not buy any. This is good though so I will be encouraged to go out there and walk some more since I have really good, comfortable and light shoes to wear.

… you see, I saved more than half of what I paid for these two pairs. Running shoes priced for $64.94 minus 30% store clearance price ($19.48) and additional discount $13.69 from the coupon. Nike shoes final price is $31.77. The flats were $29.94 minus 30% off store clearance price ($8.98) and coupon $6.31, final price is $14.65.

Total for two pairs including tax is $50.25, sweet deal, isn’t it? I saved $72. 58 which is more than half of what I spent in their store. This is why, I love going to DSW because of the savings I get when I shop there.

If you are a wise shopper, you don’t need to pay full price on things when you know you can get them for less no matter what brand they are.

Great Finds at Thriftstores

When I don’t feel lazy and are bored at home, I go to a thrift store and kill my time digging for something I may not expect I could find. Most of the time, I don’t go out the store empty-handed for I always find something worth bringing home.

Like for instance, these two beautiful things photographed below. I bought them in two different stores, the painting cost only $1.91 at McCart Thrift store. It is too beautiful to not pick it up. Even J and my husband told me that it is really beautiful. Mind you, it’s got some scratches and other minor flaws in it, but can you see it? It is actually an original oil painting on a canvass dated  1986 with an artist’s name on it.

The second item I found is this pair of Skechers shoes, they are not my size but they are in great condition. If you don’t look closely, you can’t tell this pair has been worn. Not even a dirt on the soles, I tell you. I found them at Goodwill. The pair would have been $7.99 but guess, it was my lucky day because it was the store manager at the register that checked me out and he only priced me for $2.99.

It pays to be nice and make a conversation to people at the register you know. The man was so rugged and you couldn’t even tell he was the manager judging from the clothes he wore or from his physical appearance but… you never know who you’re talking to unless they start talking to you. Thanks to him, I got a pretty good deal on the shoes.

Tabletop Grill on 75% off Clearance at CVS

This is what I like about going to the store and not expecting anything nice. I went to CVS pharmacy yesterday to get our passport photos done for our dual citizenship application and while waiting for the employee to get done with the photos, I roamed around the store and found this beautiful thing in their clearance aisle, as you can see in the tag it is marked down to 75% off that cost me only $4.99 each tabletop grill. I bought two even though we don’t need one for now but it doesn’t get rotten so it will stay in our back room adding to our already piled up stuff haha.

The other one will go to my family in the Philippines since they don’t have a decent grilling machine over there. It pains me to see them grilling meat or dried fish directly on the ash. This one could make them a beautiful gift and I hope they will appreciative of it. Makes their grilling easy, convenient and clean.

Free 8 oz. Glade Fall Collection Spray

When items are free, I am more than glad to get them with the use of coupons of course! CVS’ deal for 8 oz. Glade Fall Collection Spray is 3/$3, I used their store coupon from the red machine for that $1 off 3 Glade spray and 1 manufacturer coupon $2 off three any Glade product which make them free. Did two transactions that’s why I brought home 6 bottles.

Another deal that I found interesting is the Nivea lip care, buy any 2 get $3 ecb back. I had $3 on hand from previous week’s deal and used it, total $6.88. Could have spent less in all of the items below if I didn’t buy 2 candies for my girls.

Just thought of sharing this not so interesting mini haul I did today, who knows there’s somebody out there looking for a deal at CVS this week.

Labor Day Shopping

The best destination when it comes to holidays like Labor Day is the mall! I am talking as if I have unlimited budget, lol. Well, if you are a thrift shopper, you will go wander around the mall and take your time to dig for really deep discounts on whatever it is you are thinking of buying.

Here’s my deals today. First stop was CVS pharmacy and did not expect to find these white Gildan men’s shirt in their clearance rack, 90% off the original price which was 3/$12. Final price, it costs me 40 cents each. Only 5 pieces left so I bought them all for my balik-bayan box to send to the Philippines. If my brothers don’t want them, plenty of my cousins and uncles who will want them.

Another purchase that I think I got me a discount are these two PINK bralettes. I am in need of them to make me feel comfortable for my walking exercise. They would make a great cover up of my flesh under a roomy tank for walking or working out at the gym in the future. Full-priced $19.95 each and I made it down to $10.77 each including tax due to store coupons that I received when Victoria’s Secret sent me catalogs in the mail. Not only that, I also snagged me two FREE undies by using free underwear coupons! How sweet is that?

While a lot of customers are partying on 7/$26.50 panties, I don’t. Why buy if I could have free panties?
What about you folks? What did you do on Labor Day? Did you find great deals too? Don’t be shy to share them in my comment section.
