*A note: Depending on the cashier you get, some will not let you use coupons that are equal to the cost of the item. For instance, this morning's cashier wouldn't let me use my $1.50 Kellogg's coupon on a clearance box priced $1.50. A bummer but that's just part of the game. 
I will hopefully be shopping in Provo later today. Stay tuned!!!

Find of The Week!

I've had lots of great finds on these last few hunts but this one is definitely my favorite and a seriously sweet find!
It is a lovely Columbia brand parka in really nice condition and just happens to be my size! I needed a new winter coat anyway. How wonderfully fortuitous! I gave it a good washing and will look forward to using when we go camping this summer and then lots and lots next winter!
Stay tuned for lots more amazing dumpster finds!!!

High Value Kellogg's Coupon

Thank you for this awesome heads up!

Kellogg's $3/3 Coupon!!!

Hurry or you'll miss it!!!

A Quick Deal and learning from the past!

Two years ago I bought this fabulous pair of stretchy capris at Kmart. I absolutely loved them to threads! I had gone back a month or two after buying them and of course they were no longer available. Since then, I have looked at Kmart and many other stores, hoping to find more of them. It just didn't happen. But finally, last week my luck turned! I was picking up a prescription at Kmart here in Spanish Fork and took a minute to browse the ladies department. I was thrilled to find that they finally had my capris in again!! They were a $1 more expensive than before but I didn't care! I grabbed a pair with delight!
Since then, I have been thinking many times that I can't make the same mistake this time and simply HAD to get back over there and grab a couple more. Spending the money was the problem, as usual. You know I have a really hard time doing that. :)
Today though, I had to go in for another Rx and gave in to that wise voice in my head, grabbing two more pair, one black and one blue.
I picked up my Rx and a 5% off Apparel coupon printed with my receipt! I took it as a sign! Then, at the register, I found out that I had almost $2 in Shop Your Way Rewards available and had the cashier go ahead and apply them. I ended up saving $3 on my order, which brought them below the price I paid two years ago!
I highly recommend all you ladies get a couple pair of these!! They can be dressed up or down. I might add some bead detail to the hem of one of them....
More praise: through weight gain and weight loss and weight gain, they always keep their shape and fit beautifully. I recommend going with a size small than you think you'll need as they run a little big and you'll want them nice and snug.
They are modest and super comfortable and I love them!! Just might have to go back for one or two more pair... They even have some wild prints available that I'm contemplating.... :)

I've already put the one I got this morning together. It was super easy and it is really sturdy. So excited to have these for my yard sales! Plus I ordered a nice long one on ebay that will be here any day now!! Feeling so much less ghetto with my yard sale set up!

I also found these 2 Sally Hansen Nail growth Miracles on clearance for .82 each.
 I used a .50/1 any Sally Hansen nail color product online print coupons to get them for just .32 each!

I will probably be heading down to Payson tomorrow for a bit of shopping and hunting. Hoping for great deals and fabulous finds! 

A busy morning!

Cleaning out the closets??

Hey kids! It looks like the well-dressed ladies around town are cleaning out their closets! I hit the bins yesterday and today and found boxes and bags of high quality, name brand misses/ladies clothing, shoes, accessories and more!!!
Video games, phone accessories, scalp massager, hair products and more!
TONS of clothes!!! Lots of Aeropostale and Victoria's Secret tops and pants!
