The Children's Place Big Huge Labor Day Sale!

Check out those savings! I just love shopping for next season right now. You save soo much money this way. Head on over to The Children's Place. They are having a Big Huge Labor Day Sale. No really, that's the name. The BHLDS runs through September 3rd. This sale rocks because they are offering FREE shipping! Yay! No minimun or code needed for the free shipping. I really hate to pay for shipping. Like REALLY hate it.  I advise you to first check out the clearance section. I always hit that up first. Pair this awesome sale with promo code D6H3E4KM82 to save an additional 20% off your order. Plus (I'm really feeling like an infomercial here stacking all these awesome and appealing offers.) if you shop through you can get an additional  8% cash back. I know you are all Get out! and I'm all I know! I purchased $73.45 worth of clothes for my kiddos for a mere $20.11 shipped. Shipped. Not that I would ever pay full price for any of this, but just so you can see how much I saved I threw that in there. :] The prices in the picture above already reflect the clearance prices and aren't original prices. Go now before everything is gone!

I find it funny....This one's for you Tarjay.

Sometimes I see things that make me say to myself: "I find it funny....." Fill in the blank with the most recent make you go hmm moment. I like to talk a lot so I figured that if my husband wasn't here to share this with I'd share it with you instead. I'd probably get a blank stare from the hubbs anyway. Then he'd say: "Nice story." So here we are.

I placed an order for Target's Daily Deal the other day because I needed me a new toothbrush. Below the reviews was a section titled 'Top-rated picks for electric toothbrushes.' I found it rather amusing that the top picks all had below average reviews except for one. It had three stars out of five. I don't believe 60% is anything to write home about either folks. I have decided that people must not read reviews if these items are the top picks.

I am a crazy review reader. I don't buy anything without first consulting the reviews. It is time consuming and I wish I wasn't like this. I guess the only good to come from this is that I don't make impulse purchases.

My next question is for Target. Who decides your top-rated picks? Obviously the Up & Up Replacement Heads received MANY poor reviews. I always wonder if top-rated picks and the like on other websites are completely and purely randomly generated. This makes me go hmm.

$0.05 seeds at Walgreens!

UPDATE: Walgreens stores are very independent. As in so independent that a store less than ten miles away will have the same seeds on clearance for $0.25. So keep your eyes peeled and don't be afraid to shop around :) Don't forget to check back often. Prices will always go down down down. They want to move the clearance items to make room for the new stock.

Yay! It's that time of year. Seed clearance. Oh boy oh boy oh boy. I tend to go overboard at this time of year pretending that next season I will have someone to swap seeds with. Um yeh. And I'm going to run away with Brad Pitt. And not Legends of the Fall Brad Pitt, but Meet Joe Black Brad Pitt :) Does this post have a point? Sure does: Check your local Walgreens for packets of seeds on clearance for $0.05. I found them in the clearance aisle. Everything from Cherry Tomatoes, Beefsteak Tomatoes, Cukes, Cosmos, Zinnias, Sunflower, Cabbage, Basil, Wildflower Mix, Morning Glory, to Cilantro and much more.

*I want to mention that just because the packet says packaged for 2012 doesn't mean they won't sprout next year.  I use old seeds every year. Only this year did my 5 year old Marigold seeds stick their noses up at me. So be it.
