The Look for Less: Houndstooth Skirt!

 While recently perusing the latest Kate Spade looks I completely fell in love with this one! That houndstooth skirt is to die for, but at $295 it's kinda out of my price range.

So you can only imagine how excited I was to find this beauty (below) 50% off at a local thrift store this week...

I scored this lovely for only $3.00!!!
I can't wait to try and recreate this Kate Spade look!

More Rite Aid Deals

I was able to stop by Rite Aid after work today. Thankfully they had plenty of Dove in stock and my deal worked out as planned. Here's what I got...

(1) Gain 19floz Softener - $2.99
(4) Dove Deodorant - on sale $2.00 + $2UPR when you buy two
(1) Colgate Toothpaste - on sale $3.50 + $3.50UPR

 I used a $3off Gain coupon (adjusted to $2.99), three $2off Dove coupons, one $1.50off Dove coupon, and $4UPR from previous purchase....(there is also a $1off Colgate coupon available from last weeks paper which would make this deal even better, but I couldn't find mine today and decided to just go ahead without it)...

I paid $0.00, Nada, Nothin' out of pocket and my receipt printed out $7.50 in UPR!

I call that success!

I'm sorry I have worried some of you and thank you for your messages and emails of concern. I assure you I am alright...just uber busy lately!
You see, I have finally started back to graduate school 3 weeks ago, and boy I forgot how much time this took. I'm still working on finding the happy medium between all my life roles and trying to find a way to balance all my beloved activities. I'm not bad at time management, but it would be easier if there were 36 hours in the day! 
So stick with me and I'll get everything sorted out eventually - but the posts are now returning!

Back to Bargain Hunting

Truth be told, I have been off couponing for a few weeks now. Well not entirely, I mean I still use coupons when it's convenient (like a few xmas gifts from Bed Bath & Beyond), but I haven't been on the hunt for crazy bargains or creating killer deal scenarios.  Seriously! We haven't even been food shopping since before Christmas and I'm pretty sure we're going on day 5 of being without milk or juice in the fridge. Scandalous!

I kind of took a break over the holidays (which did feel good) and I'm just now jumping back on the band wagon. Today I successfully completed a KILLER Rite Aid deal! Here's the breakdown:

This one required two transactions, something I'm usually opposed to because I just dont have the time, but I couldn't pass this one up.

Transaction #1
I bought:
4 boxes of Special K cereal - $4.79each, on sale BOGO Free
1 Blink Eye Drops - $7.99 with $7.99 SCR
2 Spic n Span scrub brushes - on clearance for $0.50each
2 Spic n Span 10ct packs of Latex gloves - on clearance for $0.50each
I used:
2 x BOGO free Special K manufacturers coupons
1 x $1/1 Blink eye Drops manufacturers coupon
2 x $1/2 any Spic n Span Products
$2 UPR from previous transaction

Total OOP cost: $5.59
Will get back $7.99 SCR from Blink Eye Drops + my receipt printed $4 UPR from the cereal

Transaction #2
I bought:
4 boxes of Special K cereal - $4.79each, on sale BOGO Free
4 boxes of Barilla Pasta - 4/$5, on sale buy 4 get $1 UPR
I used:
2 x BOGO free Special K manufacturers coupons
$4 UPR from transaction #1

Total OOP: $1.60
Receipt printed $9 UPR, $1 for each item (month long food/snack UPR)

TOTAL OOP cost for both transactions: $7.19
Getting back $7.99 in SCR
$0.80 Money Maker + $9 in UPR

Now I should note, I'm pretty sure there is no way that we will consume 8 boxes of Special K, nor do I have room to store that much cereal, so at least half of this will be getting donated to the local food pantry by the end of the month. I mean really, 8 boxes is way too much for only two mouths, don't you think?
