This was a pretty good deal day! {Clearance Sales!}

I headed to Walmart today to spend my $66 in cash back that I received from Savings Catcher. {By the way, I LOVE Walmart Savings Catcher!} If you have not signed up for it, you must! If you shop at Walmart regularly like I do, the savings REALLY add up fast! πŸ˜€

This trip I picked up a handful of grocery items, some cute tank tops for my daughters among other items…but also scored a few deals along the way. I perused the clearance aisle which I love to do–and pretty much always do when I go to Walmart. I found this! read more

Children's Book Deals

I love finding books on the cheap at my local thrift stores. Honestly, I hardly ever buy a book full price, unless that is, I’ve exhausted my search for a used/discounted copy. I feel so smart when I find the books I’ve been searching for in a thrift store..hehe! Even when I find books that I hadn’t been searching for! :mrgreen:

We have one thrift store that has a bookshelf filled with children’s books. They also have a little box with plastic bags in them. $3 to fill a bag! Let me tell you, if they have decent books, then I’m going to FILL IT UP! Check out the books I’ve bought recently. $3.00 for all of these books. You can’t see them all (they are stacked), but I got 43 books! All in good to great shape. (I always try to make sure that a book isn’t written in doesn’t have any ripped pages.) πŸ˜€ read more

Some super [game] deals I've found!

Ok, you know me. I love to shop…and I LOVE when I find myself a bargain. The other day while I Walmart my hubby found the cutest game for the girls for the PS3. It’s called “Start the Party” and it was in the $5 bin. A lot of times games in the $5 are really BAD and not fun at all or have horrific graphics…lol. This game didn’t fit into that category, it is actually pretty cute & fun! Read more about it here. Maybe you can check your Walmart & see if they have it. [It works with the “Playstation Move”.]

So yes, my hubby actually found THAT deal…but I kept on looking and found a computer game called “Vacation Quest – The Hawaiian Islands”. It’s one of those “look & find” type games…again in the $5 bin.[Rated “E” for everyone]. I thought that Jacey would enjoy it. She likes the “I Spy” books and such….so I thought it would be fun. I picked it up and put it in our cart as well. I wanted to make sure the games were $5, so I scanned them at a price scanner. Yep, the PS3 game was $5 (yay), and the computer game scanned…..get this…… .56 cents! No kidding! That deal was even [way] better than I thought. Score! read more

Somebody Stop Me! [haha]

I LOVE books! I just love to read! I am in Heaven when I am in a thrift store and am surrounded by CHEAP books…seriously! I always find the best ones, too!
Just lately, I’ve found out that Amazon has a “Bargain Book” section. I have always loved shopping on Amazon for books, because they usually have the lowest prices compared to book stores online or local. Now I can go through the bargain section and search for books under $5! I bought 4 books today on Amazon. Three of them were under the $5 section, and one was under the $20 section (it was $11). Yay me! As if I don’t already have a stack of books by my bed to read…LOL! I will read them, though! :yes: Anyone else do this too? πŸ™‚

Weekend Bargains

Well, this past weekend-I went on my usual bargain hunt! Usually on Saturdays I like to hit the thrift stores around town to see what bargains I can find. Last Saturday I found this (full size) bedding, brand new, still in the package…..for $14.99!!! Oh, and it was a bed-in-a-bag which includes the comforter, 2 shams, and complete sheet set.

Great deals & Stuff! :-)

Lately-I’ve been looking for AND finding some great deals for my girls (and myself)!

Jacey & I went to the Dollar Tree the other day–a store we go to occasionally. Sometimes you can actually find some good stuff in there! In the past I’ve found cute little “Wallies” for Jacey’s room. (They are the removeable/reusable wall stickers.) This time I actually found makeup for myself. Good makeup, too-not the cheapo kind you can get anywhere. I got eyeshadow, lip gloss w/lip plumping action, and skin highlighting powder. Cool, huh?! I was excited! read more
