Post Christmas Sale Hauls
The hubby and I received 2 Starbucks gift cards, as well as JC Penny, Target and Bath and Body Works gift cards. I don't think I've been blessed with such an abundance of gift cards before, and they stretched even further because many stores were having post holiday sales and coupons. Hubby and I had great luck and a lot of fun picking out things we wanted. Here are some of the great bargains I got.
Bath and Body Works (semi annual sale, everything 50-75% off).
I exchanged some lotions in scents I didn't care for ($25) and checked the gift card my in-laws had given me (60!), so with the 50-75% off and $20 off $50 coupon I made out like a bandit! Super excited about my 6 candles: they still had a bunch of the scents I wanted, despite being picked over. 5 of them were $8.72 each and the Toasted Graham Latte was only $4.36!
I stocked up on some favorite handsoaps for $2.33 each. I didn't need much body care as I have a ton but the handsoaps and candles I go through quickly.
The shower gel and body cream were around $2.49 and the adorable bubble bath only $3.49!
This is my biggest SAS haul yet and I only spent $68 + tax and saved $142!
JC Penny navy swing dress and cobalt peplum top. Sale price for both was $35 and with 20% off coupon I only spent my $25 half of the gift card! Hubby got some nice button up shirts and a polo with his half. I've worn the navy dress already and it was super cute and flattering. I wish I had gotten a photo!
Target: gray and gold print tee, white pine tree print tee, pink and rose gold polka dot infinity scarf and a bunch of Valentine's/home decor stuff. All the Dollar Spot items were $3 each. I love Target Dollar Spot items; they have the most fun and inexpensive knick knacks! The tees were $9 each and the giant wood wick candle was the biggest splurge at $20. Totally worth it; I've had this triple layered candle before and it performs and smells fabulous!
One of the few areas I have to decorate in our tiny living space is the kitchen table/wax area. After I took wistfully down the Christmas decor, I put up this adorable metallic leather arrow banner and set out the heart shaped candy dish. That small dose of cuteness should see me nicely through February.
I did not have a gift card for this last haul, but I did stumble upon an amazing sale online: up to 75% off at Nordstrom Rack. I was able to get 8 items for $79 shipped and saved a few hundred! I just received most of items today; I am so excited to wear them!
To cap off our mega 2 days of shopping, we had a wonderful home cooked Italian dinner with my aunt and uncle. The most delicious baked ravioli with meat and marinara sauce and a wonderful garden salad!
We had a wonderful time and laughed at the antics of their 3 calicos. Here's spoiled Princess Cali getting fed on the counter!
