It must be my lucky day.

As the last of the Christmas clearance disappears from store shelves, I always hope to find one more hidden gem.  Today I got my wish!  I stopped into Walgreens super quick for Diet Coke (I know, I know…blech.  Mark drinks it) and happened to see these babies sitting on a shelf in the toy section.

2015-01-25 13.54.25Walgreen’s version of EOS lipbalms.  They were still ringing up $2.99 each, but I didn’t hesitate to ask an employee if they should have been marked down by now since they are obviously holiday items.  I told the employee that if they were to be marked down to 90% (the last markdown before they get taken off the shelves for the season) that I would take them all.  The young gentleman went to ask a manager for me and the manager agreed that if I took them all, I could have them for 29 cents each!  Whaaaaat?  Who does that?  It’s crazy-town!  Obviously, I took them all, including the little bin they came in for a grand total of $7.25.

We’re EOS addicted in this house, and the cheapest I’ve found it is on sale at Target for $2.69 last week. These will be great for months to come and there’s plenty to share with family!

EOS lemon drop…and yes, I paid retail for it..I love it that much.

And speaking of fun deals…did anyone else get their Beauty Box from Walmart in the mail this past week?  It’s a neat little program.  Sign up and Walmart sends you a free beauty box every season…spring, summer, winter & fall and you only pay shipping, which is $5.  This is my first Beauty Box and I’m more than happy with it and feel like the $5 was a good deal for what I received, plus it’s fun to have a surprise coming in the mail.

Here’s what I got…

Pond’s Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream, 1.75 oz. jar.
Covergirl Outlast lip color, full sized.
3 sample sized Dove products, shampoo, conditioner and body wash
Travel sized Ponds makeup remover wipes.
A sample of Maybelline Dream Powder and a $1 coupon.
I know that Target has a beauty box as well, I’m going to sign up for that, too!  I hope you guys had a great weekend and are getting ready for the THUMPING that Mother Nature (hag) is throwing our way here in a day or two.  Be safe & watch out for each other!
