Weekend Deals

So, I haven't blogged here in two-and-a-half years...ouch!  I really want to record the little tidbits of our life - things that don't necessarily make my scrapbook pages - and I'm going to make an effort to post at least two or three times a week here.

Today I'm sharing a couple great deals from Ulta and Bath & Body Works.  Ulta had their grand opening this past weekend, and even though I missed the gift certificates that they handed out to the first 100 customers, I still scored some good deals.

They offered a $5 off $15 coupon on Facebook, and then they handed me another coupon (for free foundation or powder) when I walked in the store.  After my coupons, I spent $13.87 and got all this:

The shampoo + conditioner were on a buy-on-get-one-free sale, and the sugar scrub and Almay eye pads were part of a doorbuster sale they were running.  The BB cream was free, but I did pay full price for the manicure sticks.  :)

My next stop was Bath & Body Works.  They're running they're semi-annual clearance sale plus I had a $10 off $30 coupon.  I ended up getting all this for only $22.80:

Considering the candle retails for $22.50, I think I made out pretty well.  Some of the items even rang up cheaper than the signs (and how often does that  happen?), so initially I was about $2 short to use my coupon.  The "be enchanted" body wash was on sale for $3.12, so I grabbed the third bottle.  I think I'm set for the rest of the summer!
