Welcome to The Two Cent Chick! Although this is not my first blog, it is my first time hosting a blog through which I can write about and explore some of the topics I love most: bargains and giving my two cents!
As an example of what I’ll be writing about, here’s my first bargain shopping haul:
BATH AND BODY WORKS
Currently, Bath & Body Works (BBW) is in the middle of their Semi-Annual Sale (SAS), and I always make a point to stop by at least a few times to check out what’s on deep (we’re talking 50%-75%) clearance!
**I only shop at BBW when I have coupons-a post to come on my BBW shopping strategies soon!**
Tip: Generally, every BBW store will vary in the merchandise it sells during the SAS, simply because each store has different backstock and items that didn’t sell during previous sales. If you love BBW like I do, it’s always beneficial to check out a few different stores. I am lucky enough to have three within reasonable driving distance!
This was a TOTAL score! I haven’t seen this product in stores in a long time, but I have heard rave reviews of the spot-on Margarita smell. This giant 16 fl oz. bottle caught my eye in the 75% off bin, and I double checked with an employee to make sure it was indeed 75% off of the steep $15.00 original price tag.
THE SMELL is insanely delicious, and does indeed remind me of a lime-y, salty margarita. I cannot wait to use this during the summer months!
Original price: $15.00
Clearance price: $3.75 (75% off!)
I’m a huge fan of the original Shea Cashmere Hand Cream (think the consistency of frosting with an addictive vanilla scent), and I also love Sweet Pea, so this was a no-brainer. As far as Shea Cashmere on clearance, my BBW had tons of Dark Kiss, a couple of Country Chic and a random Sweet Pea (therefore I HAD to grab it!)
Original Price: $10.00
Clearance Price $2.50 (75% off!)
This was not on sale, however:
-I love great smelling hand sanitizers
-This one is ridiculously fast drying since it’s a spray
It’s a crisp, fresh lemon (obviously) scent, and I really love how quickly it dries.
Original Price: $4.00
Target always puts their Christmas merchandise on 50% clearance on December 26, and then later in the week everything generally becomes 70-75% off, so you know I had to stop by and see what was left!
I’ve been on the search for an inexpensive curling iron sans harsh clamp, so I was so happy to stumble upon a whole shelf of Remington hot hair tools on clearance. My Target also had mini and full size straighteners!
Check out the great price:
I can’t wait to try this out!
One thing you should know about me: I am addicted to lip products, specifically, lip balms. It’s a problem.
I love me some Lip Smackers, and these flavors are classics. I was willing to pay the $4.99, but then I made my way over to the handy Target price checker, and discovered…
Original Price: $4.99
Clearance Price: $1.49
But, seriously? $1.49 for FIVE lip balms? Aka, 30 cents a piece? Yes, please.
My obsession with ELF (Eyes Lips Face) will have to wait for another post. But for now, let’s talk about how ELF is already an inexpensive brand. But then, because products are in “holiday” packaging, they must be immediately clearanced out after the holidays. God bless Target and ELF.
I’ve always wanted to try false lashes, just for fun! And the adorable bonus eyelash curler and tweezers are just plain awesome.
Original Price: $3.00
Clearance Price: $2.55
And thus concludes my first post. I also made a special trip to Ulta which I will post about sometime soon!
Thanks for reading!
