With all the snow we got during this crazy snow storm, I had a lot of free time to mess around with online shopping. I know Target is a great place to shop online but I love walking in Target and catching the sales. Target offers free shipping on any order $25 or more to your house. Now everyone knows it is too too too easy to spend at least $25. I ordered big items, I didn't think they actually would deliver these items but I tried anyways. To my door I received laundry detergent, paper towels, dishwasher detergent, a few other clothing items I had to sneak in. So excited, not sure why I never take advantage of this feature. In the past I have used the pick up in store option, which items are usually ready in 1 hour at the front desk. It does help if you don't want to run around the store and buy the millions of things you remember you need once you arrived. I ordered an item which the store didn't end up having in stock even though it said on the website that they did. Because of the mistake they shipped it to my house with no additional charge. They also have curbside pick up which seems to be new. I haven't tried it yet but I can't wait to report back. I love Target!

I don't usually walk down the toy aisles after christmas sales, I didn't know they clearanced so many items. This year after my friend who has mastered the art of target shopping had mentioned the toy section, I decided to check it out. I found paw patrol mini figurines form $2.99 down to $0.88. These work great for car rides for my children, I love storing little toys in their backpacks for them to find and play with on road trips. Also, spongebob lego figurines also down to $0.88. My son loved building them. It says for ages 5 and up but my 4 year old was able to follow the instructions and build the kits. I found a guess who knock off game for $1.50. I haven't opened it yet but I do believe my toddlers will enjoy playing this game. Would love to hear what great items you found this year at target.

Burt's Bees deals and review


I love shopping the sales right after christmas. This year I found a burt's bees mani/pedi set for $3 from target, yay! I am using a mac for a change, not sure how to post the picture. So instead I'll attach a link at the bottom for you to see. I've never purchased anything from burt's bees. I've been using the set for a week, and I love it. I am a big fan of peppermint which is what the set smells like. It comes with a pedi brush, and cuticle cream, hand cream and foot cream. The cuticle cream makes nails look amazing!! I used them both on hand and feet. I loved the stone on the brush. I used it yesterday on my foot, it really gets rid of rough spots. And the lotion did wonders on my super dry hands. Even my feet felt amazing! I do recommend this set. Luckily for Burt's bees since I tried this set I will now purchase these products! http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/burts-bees-mani-pedi-set?ID=2479459&pla_country=US&CAGPSPN=pla&CAWELAID=120156340004132637&catargetid=120156340000910546&cadevice=c&cm_mmc=Google_Beauty_PLA_PLA-_-Beauty_Bath+%26+Body+-+GS_Burt%27s+Bees-_-79841945066_-_-_mkwid_ybhmkYaA|dc_79841945066%7C-%7CybhmkYaA Also, I did try the burt's bees mint cocoa lip balm. That smells bad and tastes bad. I thought that would be a nice combination, but I don't like it. It was clearanced to $0.89. My daughter actually likes using it so it won't totally go to waste. http://www.burtsbees.com/Mint-Cocoa-Lip-Balm/792850894549,default,pd.html

target

Andv dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">
I've been going to target these last few weeks and trying to understand the clearance markdowns. I love shopping at target after the holidays. But the toys were a little harder to predict. So seemingly things usually sale at the 50% markdown in my area.I did manage to find a few deals. I bought a baby doll for $2.57 with a walker. Also I bought a kids pillow for $1.50, loot party bags for $0.48, And a Erin blanket for $4ish. I'm looking forward to future deals at target.

So here's the millionth attempt to get back into posting back on my blog. It's been tricky with life but here we go. In the last few months I have opted to GWR the Sunday paper and figure out couponing. It hasn't been as easy as extreme couponers made it seem. Attached is a picture of my free items from couponing.

recycled gift bag

Here is a cool youtube video of how to make your own gift bag out of newspaper. How cool would it be if you got a paper in a different language. I would love to see a bag made our of Arabic, Korean or something like that. It would be even cooler if you could find aged newspaper.
