I was able to make two quick stops in CVS and Rite Aid today and I scored some pretty great deals!

At CVS I picked up:
4 boxes of Quaker Oats Instant Oatmeal, on sale 2/$5 + $2ECB when you bought 2 boxes
1 Dawn Hand renewal Dish Soap, on sale for $.97
1 bag of Candy Corn, on sale $.99

I used:
4 x $2/1 Quaker Instant Oats coupons
1 x $1/1 Dawn Hand renewal Soap from Organize in Style
1 x $.99/1 Candy Corn that printed when I scanned my CVS card at the Red Kiosk
and $2 EB from a previous purchase

TOTAL = $0.00 plus my receipt printed out $4 ECB from the Oatmeal

At RITE AID I picked up:
2 x Gain Dish Soap, on sale $.89
1 x Maybelline Mascara, on sale 40% off
2 x Playtex Tampons, on sale 2/$8 + get $2 UpR when you buy 2

Wednesday's what I want now....

I have decided to limit my "What I want now"s to Wednesdays only (unless I of course find something I just cant hold back on sharing) rather than continue to bombard all of you each day with my ever growing and endless wish list full of all the things I want and can't afford or have no place to store currently. So here is my first of the many more to come "Wednesday's What I want now" items....

London Double Decker Bus - Teapot
I'm just completely and utterly in l♥ve with this London Double Decker Teapot by Rockett St. George!
Available HERE.

The Look for Less:

I'm totally lusting for this Ted Baker wallet. It also comes in black, blue and pale purple! My hold up is that it's $110 price tag would leave me with no money left to keep in it!

Here are a few more budget friendly similar options I found....

Target - Patent Frame Clutch - $18.00

Forever21 - Faux Patent Wallet - $7.80

Nordstrom - Kate Spade 'big apple' card wallet - $35.90

Getting Organized with Honesty and Sass

I am usually a VERY organized person. Lately I have been lacking the motivation to file much of our incoming mail which is now starting to take over not only our coffee table but also your kitchen table, dining room floor and end tables. I think that these folders I found today could help get me back on track...what do you think?

They just make me smile!
Grab some for yourself HERE at Z Gallerie!

What I want now...

Feeling indecisive about your lip gloss shade??

Then get your hands on Le Métier de Beauté 'Kaleidoscope' Lip Kit priced at (brace yourself) $95! Although unfortunately priced way out of my comfort zone, I love the concept of this fun multi-shade stacking system. This definitely appeals to my indecisive side!

Here are some less expensive options - although they're lacking the fun swivel action, they still give you the same amount of options to choose from in one case!

New Banana Republic Pants!

I had the day off work today, but I was very busy with a full day graduate school interview....fingers crossed they liked me!

As a bit of a treat to myself on my way home I stopped at Banana Republic to see what I could see. When I arrived I was happy to find that they were having an additional 40% off all sale items sale! I came home with these...

 Aren't they pretty? I have been trying to add some more dress pants to my woredrobe and cut back on the amount of denim I wear. I feel like it's a bit more professional.

So these grey beauties were originally priced at $79.50 and marked down in the store to $21.97. After the additional 40% discount I walked out with them for only $13.19!!! A wonderful treat to myself after a long day...
