Great Deal on Clothing and Shoes at Old Navy Store

I’ve been back to Old Navy store twice already. It is not my habit to go back to the store and shop a lot of clothing but when I find real deep discounts on clothing and shoes for the kids, I wouldn’t mind driving there twice or more.

Last Friday last week, Old Navy had a promotion buy 2 clearance items get 1 free. That promo only lasedt for three days. I was able to avail that on Friday, bought quite a lot of slippers, boy shorts and some adult tops starting from 47 cents up to a little over $5. I spent only $27 plus that day plus I got a $10 Old Navy super cash certificate.

Yesterday I went back again and I was not disappointed. I found more awesome merchandise that are less than a dollar each. More shorts for the boys, slippers and slip on shoes for both girls and boys, some shorts for the girls at 47-97 cents. Imagine how amazing that is? Although the buy 2 get 1 free item promo has ended, I still think I got a good deal on my second haul. Some of which will be shipped to my relative in Oregon for she requested me to buy some for her siblings too.

 

…. photo below are just 97 cents per pair. Ever wonder why I  bought a lot of this? Well, they will go into my balik-bayan box to be sent to my brother and nephews in the Philippines.

Deals on Vitamins at CVS this Week 1/3-9/16

Here’s a good deal worth driving to CVS this week, a deal on vitamins with tons to choose from. Brands like CVS brand, nature made, nature bounty and Disney are buy one get one free! It is even better if you have manufacturer coupons and store coupon printed from the red machine last week to stack altogether. I got $4 off of $25 vitamin purchase for that and a $5 ecb along with a few manufacturer coupons.

These vitamins could easily cost me over $60 but with the use of coupons, I was able to save 75% of the price for all this. I am pleased with my shopping trip because I only paid $19.90 including tax for vitamins that could last for months, these are of course for me and for our girls.

Another deal I am aiming to avail this week is the Aveeno cleansing bars which will then give me $10 ecb back, no need for coupons for this. Hopefully when I go to the store on Saturday, there’ll be stocks left in the shelf before the promo ends.

Old Navy End of Season Clearance Starting at 47 Cents

Now is the perfect time to shop for clothes for you and your entire family especially for your kids. One of my favorite destinations to shop for clearance is Old Navy. When we say, clearance, their merchandise is truly marked down to like they almost give it away.

You just have to take your time and have patience when shopping for clearance. There are plenty to choose from and some of the mark down items are buried deep under the not so deal items. As temperatures get dropping down, stores are also getting rid of their previous merchandise so you really need to head on to your fave store and start shopping for next summer’s outfit.

As for my haul yesterday, I found quite a lot on women’s section to be cheap. Two of my favorite finds are the blue hound’s tooth dress for under $8 and a beautiful beige/faux snakeskin body bag which I love a lot. It was marked down half price off and so I grabbed it. If the bag was sold at less than $15 and it isn’t as beautiful as the one I’m wearing below, I would even bother spending my money on it. But man, when I laid eyes on it, thought this bag was gorgeous for half off price.

Other stuff I found was 47 cents women’s sleeveless shirts, 2 summer dresses for my 7 year old kid, one long sleeves and two other top for my mother which are under $2 each. I paid a little over $32 for everything plus a $10 Old Navy supercash good for next shopping trip.

I am happy with my haul and yes, would love to go back there again sometime soon.

Where Should You Buy a Fur?

When you buy a fur for yourself or someone you love, you want it to be perfect. A fur is a major investment on your part. Therefore, you need to be certain that it is money well spent. This means that you need to carefully select the furrier that you do business with. With so many furriers in this world, the choice of which one to buy your furs from is not a decision that should be made lightly. The quality and prices of furs vary greatly from one furrier to the next. Where should you buy a fur? Here are some valuable tips to help you make a decision.

1. Many years in the fur business

Choose a furrier that has been around for a long time. If a company has been selling furs for decades, this means that the quality of the furs they sell is exceptional enough to make people keep coming back again. It also means their prices are fair. ML Furs is just such a furrier. Opening their doors in 1951, the quality of their furs are second to none. Learn more about them by visiting https://www.mlfurs.com/.

2. A large inventory

You may want to buy a fur, but you may not have any idea what style you want. In cases like this, it is important that a furrier have a large inventory so that customers can keep browsing through different styles until they see something that piques their interest. Basically, you want to avoid having to go to many different fur retailers to find the exact fur you are looking for. The larger the inventory that a furrier has, the better the chance that you will be able to find something you like.

3. Pricing

A fur is not a cheap item. You should know that going in. That having been said, the prices on certain furs can differ dramatically depending on what store is selling them. Shopping around for the best deal is essential when you are making a purchase of this magnitude. You should always try to save yourself the maximum amount of money. Looking around online for the lowest price will not take you very long. The savings you get from doing this can be quite substantial. There are furriers that price their furs competitively, while others are extraordinarily high. Looking around will help you determine which ones fall into each of those categories.

Pink Products for Less Than $2

Sweet, almost free PINK products below I grabbed last week. I only paid  $1.08 total for all five items, it would have been over $50 if I wasn’t wise doing my round of shopping at the Victoria’s Secret store. How did I do this? Well, here’s a breakdown.

Boy shorts $9.50 orig price, I used that $1 coupon they gave me for trying on a bra at their store, then the PINK mini mists on sale for $5 each, I had $20 worth gift certificate that they sent me two weeks ago as a birthday gift certificate. I did two different visits since VS would only accept certificate one at a time.

I love it when I get to avail almost free of my favorite products. Since I am visiting my motherland in a month, these items can make great gifts to chosen people. I hope they will like the scent and that they will be happy to receive these.

Victoria’s Secret 9 Items for Less than $12

Here’s my latest haul from Victoria’s Secret. Seven bottles of VS mists and two clearance bras, all for $11.14 including shipping and tax of course. How did I come with the amount? Read on.

I was lucky to receive (1) $50 secret reward card last December so I bought a $40 gift card in order to avail the semi-annual clearance sale since the secret reward card had expired December 19, the semi-annual sale did not start until Jan. 1. Also, I had (2) $10 Pink reward card for any Pink purchase which I used towards the two bras. Total amount for 9 items is $66 that is not including tax and shipping. The two Pink cards by the way were sent from them for me because they have upgraded my status from regular member to being a VIP.

You see, there are many ways to save on things here, all you got to do is find them on the internet. As for me, I join FB group that is composed of mostly Filipinas that love to share links of deals either online or in-store. I check the group from time to time because we never know deals could pop out any moment.

It pays to be on the internet most of the day because of the deals on clothing, fragrances, housewares and many more. I can’t count how many I have taken advantage of in the past, thanks to this awesome group I belong for it tells me when deals are happening.

Chocolate Markdowns After Halloween

There are only two occasions each year when you can score really great deals on chocolate, after Halloween and Christmas. Most stores will put their chocolates up 50-75% after each occasion to give space for new ones. These are the total packages of chocolates I hauled in CVS and Walmart after Halloween.

The yellow packages of Snickers I bought from CVS, originally priced at $4.99 and marked down to $1.88 and had $3.50 worth of extrabucks used upon check out.

The large brown bags were are Walmart, these are large bags containing 80 and 95 pieces of assorted chocolates. The orange package I bought for full price at a different store before Halloween, still a great deal because there’s so many candies in that package.

I plan of visiting the Philippines next year so buying chocs and candies as early as now is a great idea while they’re on sale! Chocolates’ “best before” date will be until June 2015, but even that day comes, they will still be good for they never really go bad.

VIP Shopping – The Benefits of Shopping Online

Just like telecommuting, online shopping is also gaining popularity among people from different parts of the world. Some people who do not know much about this shopping method are usually apprehensive. They do not feel comfortable especially when it comes to giving their financial details. However, a lot of online shoppers have great experiences that they continue to shop online.

Savings Unlimited

Contrary to the popular belief, people can actually save a lot of money when they shop online. There are actually a lot of online stores that offer huge savings especially with coupons. Shopping in coupon sites enables people to use codes and coupons for more savings. Such sites usually offer discounts and even freebies in exchange of coupon site points. When compared, people get more savings when they shop on these stores rather than actual establishments. In these days you can easily find coupon codes from online sites by using any popular search engine. Most online stores owners and administrators offer lower prices so they can attract more shoppers. Also, most online stores do not apply taxes to purchases.

Style and Speed

There are a lot of different products available in online stores. There are a lot of stores, brands, and items to choose from. This gives shoppers more than enough options. Likewise, shoppers can browse significantly bigger amounts of products for sale in online stores compared to how much they can view when shopping in an actual store when given the same length of time. This allows shoppers to purchase the best product for them quickly. This is also perfect for shoppers who have to buy different things that do not usually coexist in a store. Instead of going to from one store to another, shoppers can just get everything that they need easily through an online store.

Convenience at its Finest

One of the major benefits of online shopping is the shopper’s convenience. Shoppers do not have to travel to and from the stores. They do not have to endure traffic jams. They do not have to wait in line to pay for their purchase. They can get what they want at the comfort of their own houses. They can even shop while lying on their beds. They do not have to dress up to go out and shop. They can shop even in their PJ’s. They can easily pay for their purchases over secured payment systems in online stores.

Shop Anytime

Online stores do not have specific operating hours. Therefore, people can shop any time they want! They do not have to wait for the stores or boutiques to open. They can shop any time of the day, any day of the week, and even on holidays! As a result, people do not have to clear their schedule just to shop. They can shop anytime they have time.

Private Parts

Online stores value shoppers’ privacy. In terms of payment method security, shoppers’ payment details are secured. In case of purchases involving sensitive products, shoppers prefer to buy online instead of actually going to the store and getting the items themselves.

Online Shopping – Know Your Facts First

Online shopping is one of the best ways we love to do for stress reliever or to dig for deals and savings. It is so easy and convenient as long as we have access to credit/debit cards and as long as we know what we want/need to shop. Thousands of online stores are in competition with each other just to catch a customer’s attention.

Before you open a website, you may Google a specific keyword first and see what pops up to be the most affordable item or which store should you shop for it. Online shopping is easy, convenient and most of all quick and hassle-free. You don’t need to burn your gas to go elsewhere. It is right at the convenience of your own home, and at your fingertips.
