In my Target wallet this week!

This week is all about BABY! Of course there are other sales n discounts but a BABY SALE is a big thing since baby things can add up, get pricy w certain purchases and a lot of times don't outlive their usefulness because babies outgrow them. So a BABY SALE is always worth waiting for.

Definitely check out Target's ad this week. I've pictured a few of my favorites and some some of us may want to consider. 
Definitely definitely gotta check out Tommee Tippee's 3 pack of the 5 and 9 ounce bottles! $10 is the best sale ever! Even beats BabiesRUs's Tommee Tippee bottle sale. I'm a big fan of TTs bottles. So versatile, compactable, super easy cleaning, stackable, also accessories-able, even pop-off-top-able. I'll talk about it's great-ness in another post. 
Good lotions rarely have good sales so stock up! 
If you are receiving Targets mobile coupons. Definitely make sure That you also have these. 


"Lunch" or "Thanks" 

Don't forget to use the Cartwheel discounts too! 

AND and don't forget to stack w manufacture coupons if you find any. usually have Baby Aveeno coupons. & the Kroger website have Pampers coupons to print out as well. 

Do your homework cause I already did mines! 

Happy couponing!

Baby's Labor Day Sale at Carter's

Discounts are great! 50% off PLUS 25% off as well. In store & Online.

In my Target Wallet this week

In my Target wallet this week I got 3 packs! I know it's crazy. I've been awe'd by this brand lately (as of the past yr). Though recently I've tried these and I like them. Ideally they're a great buy if you consider other brands which are like $5ish and up and only gives you a 25count or lower. These were $3.64 a pack and I got  5% off. Ok, it wasn't a sale or a great deal and it just happen to be my an impulse buying rage since I waited so long and wanted to try the orange scrubbing towelette so bad I just went ahead and bought the other two as well since I've already tried them. When there's a better sale I'll probably stock up but if these aren't going as fast, I probably won't buy them until I'm low. 

But I did get a great deal on something I usually don't use but been dying to try because I love scrubbing cleansers that foam up. Foaming tells me there's cleaning agents in it. The scrub I imagine the Scrubble Bubble animation guys working. And the brightening scent bc grapefruit says it all! No I take that back, Neutrogena says it all. I've had nothing but good if not a consistantly clean face to prove this brand is a good facial cleansing brand. Of course I didn't need two (TWO!!) value size cleansers but I was greedy and wanted the free towelettes. I know, shame. But hey it was a promotion of buy two get one free + cartwheel save 10% + two $1 off mgf coupons. Yep! You read it right. I gave the cashier two knowing I am suppose to use only one but I'm sure I'm not the only one taking advantage of stacking multiple coupons. And some cashiers really don't care. 

Btw, even though the Ad said  $9 for whatever reason that wasn't emphasized or targeted to, each bottle of cleanser was $6.99 so in the end as long as I didn't have to pay $14 and get a free item that's usually about $5. I'm a happy camper!

Couponing Philosophy

Intro: WARNING!?!?!? It's my way, and you can take your highway. Haha. Cute, no really, I do things differently or similar to some and it works for me. Maybe not to all but I am doing this for me and my family after all. 

Body: As a newbie couponer my thing is to get the most for my money. I look for deals or sales that I can also stack on mfg (manufacture) coupons and mobile coupons. I even try the same tactic online with the sales and promotions and the free S&H (which is always a great bonus).  Maybe I'm a cheapy, i dont know. But what I do know is why should I pay full price if I can get the discount and use that saved $$ for something else I want. Discounts add up and the more they add up the chances I am to get what I plan (unless I waited too long). If I do find a great deal and I've done my hmwk, I'll share the deal. Why not brag about it? We all want a good deal. I'm a stay-at-home mommy so I know how it feels to only have one income in the family and if I can silently help save some $$ (because there are people who don't  understand saving here U can spend the saved $$ somewhere else) it makes me happy and if he finds out I do buy things I didn't pay much for them. 

Conclusion: My shopping philosophy isn't so bad huh?! I also decided something recently which I find it helps me and brings a small closure to my hubby. If i decide to print out coupons, it's ONLY if I'm sure I'm going to use it. Face it, ink cartridges aren't cheap and I've wasted a handful and heard a earful from my hubby to finally come to this decision. "Why do U collect coupons you don't use them (worst is I forget them then they expire)." It's not bad, I think it's smart. Buy what you need, not just because there's a coupon and sale. 

Side note: P.s - I may not need toilet now because I have enough to last me a few more months but it doesn't expire and there's an (I think) awesome sale!
P.p.s - If I have to spend a few $$ just to save a few cents especially on things I don't need and on top of that to learn to organize coupons I won't use, that's bogus!  I'm busy as it is.

Cassandra Clare's Tumblr

I check my Tumblr everyday looking for posts from Cassie n her curious fans. They always seem to have questions n sometimes questions I myself was curious about when I read the book. Questions I keep forgetting to ask or haven't thought too much of until someone brings it up. Very interesting articles and it's good to see she interacts w her fans. She's sounds very straightforward and humorous in her answers. I've asked questions or posts comments n pictures on twitter a few times but I guess they never get her attention. O well. But you too gotta check out her tumblr if u're a fan of her as well. I believe it's And I believe mines the same @

To Stephenie Meyer

I was a Twilight fan when the first movie released and since then I read all five books including The Host and have watched all the movies. I am still a fan and all this lo♡e for reading started when Twilight happened. You can say it was love at first sight from a readers POV. I do want to thank Stephenie Meyer for introducing me to Cassandra Clare and her world of Shadowhunters from her list of favorite books.  I've read many books by different authors since Twilight and yet my two favorite authors are Stephenie Meyer and Cassandra Clare. They are the best writers ever! They are awesome to create worlds I just want to be a part of, characters I adore, even the bad guys. I love their writing and their mind is unbelievably colorful and endless.  They're awesome!

If he succeeds at the Iron Trial and is admitted into the Magisterium, he is sure it can only mean bad things for him. So he tries his best to do his worst – and fails at failing. Now the Magisterium awaits him — a place that’s both sensational and sinister, with dark ties to his past and a twisty path to his future. The Iron Trial is just the beginning, for the biggest test is still to come…
