A Few Great Deals!
Hey y'all! I am sharing a few thrifty new things I bought over the weekend. A couple weeks ago, I received a coupon in the mail from Lane Bryant for $25 off with no minimum purchase. Lane Bryant is a great store if you are on the
plump fluffy side like me. They are a bit pricey for my taste, but I thought I might be able to find something on clearance that I could basically get for free. Mama had a $10 off a $25 purchase at JCP that she gave me since she wasn't going to use it. So, coupons in hand, I sweet talked the hubs into driving to Gainesville (about an hour away) for the day and do a little shopping on Saturday.
First stop was JCP, where I bought this pretty Liz Claiborne top and gold leaf necklace.
Here's a close-up of the fabric print.
And here's a close-up of the leaf necklace. I love it and it will be a nice fall accessory.
After JCP, we went to Red Robin for lunch and then on to Lane Bryant. The hubs went to Sears tool department while I went to Lane Bryant...lol! I was excited to see they had a rack of tops on clearance for $9.99 each. They were normally priced $34.99 (which I would never pay), so this was a good deal! Remember I had a $25 coupon with no minimum purchase, which left me $5 to pay for these three tops. Normally $105 for $5! SCORE...:) I think the yellow one will be pretty with my navy blue capris and a scarf.
You can see the detailing on the necklines here. The purple and white one is just like the blue one.
On the way out of the mall, I noticed Bath & Body had their hand soaps on sale again, so I stopped in and bought some fall scents. I put the Autumn Day in my bathroom and the Pumpkin Cupcake in the kitchen and they both smell heavenly! Dakota's bathroom got the Mountain Air scent but I haven't smelled it yet. I like to buy their soaps when they are on sale and they last a long time!
The main reason I needed to go to Gainesville was to run to Sam's Wholesale Club to buy some of these...
I use these constantly (I have my own laminator) for school things. Games and flash cards printed on card stock last so much longer if they are laminated! This lamination is so much sturdier than the laminator at school, which I only use for big items. These are super expensive most places...even on Amazon, the best price I could find was $17 for 100. These are $21 for 200, so they are a great deal and worth the drive to get them. I also picked up a pack of this paper to use for school things as well. I love the bright colors! I picked up some groceries while I was there too, but didn't think you would be interested in seeing that stuff...:)
And...since I was in the neighborhood and had my saver card filled and could get $10 worth of free merchandise, I stopped by the Learning Path (teacher store) and picked up a couple things there too.
So, I saved $45 on all my products with coupons alone! All total and at regular prices, these things would have cost $217. With my coupons and sales, I got all of it for about $82! Talk about happy...:) I love good deals!
OK....hope I didn't bore you to tears with this, and if you stuck around...thanks! I came home from work early today since I was so stuffy I couldn't enunciate....and felt really bad too. I have been resting this afternoon and am praying I feel better tomorrow morning! I appreciate each of you and always look forward to hearing from you.
Have a blessed Monday afternoon friends......until next time.....
