Kelly and Katie Totes Clearance at DSW

I know a great deal when I see one like these totes I availed at DSW two days ago. I visited the store not knowing what I could buy that day, my main purpose was to look for discounted umbrellas. Unfortunately, there was none. So, as usual, I proceeded to their shoe rack clearance area and found two pairs that I actually fell in love with but having a hard time choosing between the too. I ended up not buying both.

Anyway, since I did not have anything in mind to buy, I roam around the store some more and I found these lovely totes on clearance with “red” stickers on them. Red at DSW store means the item is additional 50% off. Each tote is marked $39.95, plus I had a $20 coupon off of $49 purchase and a free scarf coupon to go with it. BIG SCORE for me!

I came out of DSW that day very happy and proud that I got to save a couple dollars for buying three sets of summery/floral reversible totes. These are decent size totes with matching medium size zipped pouches each, plus a bonus of dust bags.

Deals This Week

It always makes my eyes go big when I go in the store and see unexpected clearance sales whether it be food, chocolates, clothing or household items. I would not say no to sales you know! One best example for a really good sale is this Ghirardelli chocolates at Walgreens. From $3.29 down to 89 cents. Mind you, expiry date is until January 2017. A few expire in two months, but hey, it’s chocolate. My daughters will eat them in no time if I let them.

Another great store to go for sale items on food is Kroger. Every Monday, I go there when I have the time to scour for yellow/red stickers on items in dairy, center aisle, seafood and even in produce area. One of my best buys in Kroger is this Hawaiian rolls which is 50% off the original price. I don’t buy it in full price because it is kind of pricey for me. I wish I grabbed two instead of just one in Jalapeno because it is so good!

Not pictured is the third deal I got this week is the price matching of spam canned meat at Walmart, I got 52 pieces of the lite and original flavors for just $1 each, normally $2.68. You wonder why I got so many spams? Half of it will go to my box for the family in the Philippines.

I’m such a sucker when it comes to deals because I want to help my husband by saving money on groceries and anything we need and use in this house.

I Love Anything Patriotic

I am a mom of two and I love feeling good inside out. Being a mother and a full-time housewife does not mean you let yourself go or look “lusyang” since what you do is run a household and take care of your family. That’s a big no no for me.

One of the things I do in order to look good for myself is wearing current, trendy yet affordable clothes. I also love showing my patriotism to this great country, and with that being said, fashion and patriotism combined in one clothing, yes please! I am into that.

I so love anything patriotic, whether it be undies, cover-ups, tops or dresses. I am attracted to this kind of fashion. One of which is the cover-up I recently bought from Amazon. I find it appealing and so I knew I am gonna love this clothing once I get it, I am right. It is soft, comfy to the skin, the size fits perfect in me and most of all, it’s the American flag!

I got a few US flag tops in my closet and I am waiting for the right time to wear them, show them that I am a proud United States law abiding citizen!

How I Got 2 Victoria’s Secret Free Full Size Bottle Perfumes

If you frequent in this blog, you would know that I am a big Victoria’s Secret shopper. You would also know the reasons why as I keep writing them over and over again.

It’s the only store I buy my bras, perfumes/mists and lotions, and other stuff from. Last week, I was able to avail their glitch online. Buy 2 sport bras for $29.50 each and entered the promos “EDP4FREE” and the other one I forgot for free shipping. I paid $63 plus including tax and received my two full size bottle of perfumes that would have cost me $110 if I were to buy them in full price. Not only that, I also received .53 cents from Ebates cashback for shopping through their site before checking out Victoria’s Secret site.

I love the new collection of VS sport bra, small size fits me perfectly and the material they used is decent enough to last for long.

2 sport bras and two full size bottle of perfume do not come by often so when I saw it, I did not hesitate to avail the glitch. It’s something that I would always go for when it happens because you would pay more if you were to do this in store.

Besides, free perfume and free shipping codes often are not stackable codes if not for the glitch.

The Revlon Mascara Craze

So everybody in the couponing groups are posting their Revlon mascara haul from Target, Walmart and CVS. I am sharing mine here too. I only printed ten coupons from smartsource and made sure to use them all today as they are only good for today.

I did try the first CVS store I went to this morning but failed. The cashier couldn’t accept more than one coupon because she thought they were copied coupons while they’re not. Revlon allowed me to print two copies each browser and I used two computers!

Gladly, the second CVS store store I went to accepted all four $5 manufacturer coupons, combined that with $4 off of $20 purchase Revlon products. Deal this week is buy one $8.79 get one 50% off, I paid out of pocket $2.76 including tax.

The six remaining coupons were used in Walmart, their current price is $5.97 so, ended up paying just 97 cents each mascara. Happy shopper here.

I know I can’t use them all as I still have old mascaras from how many months ago I don’t know… but my friends, cousins and relatives in the Philippines can use them.

12 Full Size Bottles of Victoria’s Secret Mists and Lotions for Under $5

If you follow this blog, you should have read the entry I wrote about how to get freebies from Victoria’s Secret. Here’s one of those freebies I just took advantage today at their store. Twelve full size bottles of mists and lotions plus a pair of undies for just under $5. How is that possible?

Well, it is very possible, just read on.

I have collected 6 secret reward cards in total throughout their giveaway days, 4 of which I got just by sending them stamps and envelopes in snail mail. 2 from shopping online and their store. Anyway, I bought these items pictured below because they are the cheapest I can see in their store right now, 2/$10. I used six secret reward cards worth $10 each and a free panty coupon that they sent me in the mail. Regular price of each bottle is $18.

$4.75 is the exact amount I paid today, that’s literally just taxes! All of these are just FREE!

You might be wondering what am I gonna do with all these? To answer your question, I am sending them all in a box to the Philippines for my family to enjoy or sell them there. I am one happy Victoria’s Secret shopper here!

How To Earn Freebies from Victoria’s Secret and Bath and Body Works

I tell you what, I can go to the mall and not spending any dime for items I wear and use everyday, instead, bringing them home for free. Loyalty to one’s store pays off, once you become their loyal customer, rest assured, you will get many freebies ahead of you!

I don’t buy my panties anymore. Most of them are free from PINK by Victoria’s Secret. My bras are all PINK too, although I did not get them for free but at least, I got them at discounted items plus a whole lot more free stuff from them. Same goes with lotions from Bath and Body Works store. I have a couple of travel size BBW lotions free from them as well.

Here’s I do it.

1. Become a member by applying for a Victoria’s Secret or Pink credit card. You can apply in person at their store or online.
2. When you shop in-store, do not hesitate to provide your email and physical address so they can track your purchases and so they can send you brochures, coupons and other promos to your home address in the future.
3. The more you shop, the more you get coupons from them. Once you have your VS credit card, always swipe it for points. Certain points earned will be equivalent to certain reward card in the future when you reach the threshold they set for you.
4. Also, if you choose to shop online. Sign up on EBATES and search for your favorite store through their site to earn cashback when you check out successfully. First time members, receive $ too!

As for Bath and Body Works, it pretty much work the same way as Victoria’s Secret since they are sister companies only I don’t hold a BBW credit card but I do provide my email to them when they ask in store plus I have been a long time customer to this store so coupons arrive in our mailbox once in a while.


….. PINK panties and BBW lotion I got for free the other day with the use of coupons they sent me to our home address. That is $20 plus savings there for both items.

Cute to the Core Panda Flat Shoes

Look at this cute pair of Panda flat shoes below. Isn’t this pair the cutest? I know you would agree with me because it’s unique and not very many shoes are made for adults like Cute to the Core does. Even my two girls love the shoes. When I look at them on Amazon, there were five choices but I fell in love with panda so I chose it.

Just the cuteness of these shoes alone is irresistible, that’s what convinced me to buy me a pair. Secondly, is that, it is unique and not very many women are wearing such adorable panda shoes. I love the overall appearance of the shoes. I just wish they had a 6.5 size for it. I bought the size 6 because I am sure they will stay in my feet. If I buy the 7 size, they will be too big. I used them for the first time in a couple of stores and the mall today and oh boy, both of my big toes hurt a lot that I ended up going to a shoe store and bought me a pair of open toes sandals.

The black stitching around the opening of the shoes are kind of hurting my feet when rub against my skin, good thing I wore foot socks today so that somehow eased some of the friction when walking. Only two cons I see about this product, the sizing and the stitching. Other than that, it is a pretty pair to own!

I received a 50% discount for this product in exchange of my honest review. All opinions are 100% mine.
