So in a previous post I stated things I'd planned to get done this weekend. I really haven't done much of that. I did get my foot file in & will be working on a review of that. I will just say now that it's the shiz. I also did my nails....Zoya Zara on the toes & Zoya Caitlin on the fingers. I'll be posting pics and info on those later as well. I want to try a few things out on top of Caitlin before I do the post, so hopefully I can get that done this week. If not, I'll be getting a LOT done during spring break so I can get things out of the way and drafted to post later.
I didn't get much further on the Merry Gentry series by Laurell K. Hamilton either, but I did finish book 4. I'm now reading Mistral's Kiss. I just have to complete the remaining books before Friday. I also need to go through my stash for my giveaway as I've changed my mind from what I grabbed out of it the other day.
Now to the reason for this update rant. LoL. I saw on one of the blogs I follow, sorry I can't remember which one or I'd definitely give the credit, that Sally's was having 50% off their clearance items. I've hit that store up several times lately and gotten some good things. I went and looked through, but wasn't impressed with what was left. So, I looked at China Glaze polishes. They're still 2 for $10 through the end of the month. I picked Rainbow since it's on my wishlist of polishes that I want. I'd grabbed a diferent color from the Tronica collection than I already have and went to check out. While standing at the register, I noticed more clearance bins to the right. Didn't really see much, but did see a Seche Plus (nail strenghtener) for $6.49...that was before the 50% off. So, I had the cashier take off the CG Tronica polish and snagged the Seche Plus for $3.25.
The even better news is I finally got through to the other half and showed him how using coupons pays off. This morning I went to Redplum and snagged a few coupons. Most of them were for beauty products, but I did grab a few for ClaritinD, which he takes for allergies, and Childrens Claritin. I figured we'd be better off getting it at one of the drugstores because I saw a good deal in one of the ads....though I can't remember which one now. Well, he went to Publix instead of taking me to any of the drugstores. While we're walking through and getting groceries, we took a detour down the childrens/baby isle. I look just to see what the cost of Children's Claritin is there and was shocked. They had 2 different flavors of the liquid. Grape was $8-$9, but they had Original, which I think is peach, for $4.21. I checked the expiration date and it's good for another year. SO....we went ahead & snagged it. I had to run back out to the truck to get the $3 off coupon I printed, which would make it $1.21. BUT it gets even better. Publix had an in store coupon for $2 off, and the cashier used both!!! So, essentially, we were PAID $0.79 to take this stuff home!
You'll see in the pic below where Claritin was scanned, then a few other coupons, and the $3 & $2 coupons were scanned. I'm sorry for the quality as I didn't feel like pulling my DSLR out and used my camera phone instead.
Lastly, my EPIC FAIL. Last Sunday, while my dad was here, I went to look at my wishlist so I could print off just the Zoya polishes I wanted. That way I could mark them off on the booklet as well. I just went to go edit said wishlist to see if China Glaze-Rainbow was on it to mark as "have" and to add this polish...this is what I found.
If anyone knows of any great polishes I should check out, that aren't on my list, please let me know. I know there's a few I keep forgetting to add on there.
