Treats for Any Budget

As I was shopping in Target today for laundry detergent, I came across some really cute "treats." I often ask friends if they'd like to go shopping with me, and I usually get back an answer something to do with not having a budget.  So I've decided to create a (hopefully) weekly post with little "treats" or steals I see around.  Little things to brighten our days that we ALL can squeeze into our budgets, no matter what they are, in increments of $5. 

$5 (and under) Finds:

CVS:



Wet n' Wild On the Prowl Halloween 2011 Collection, $1.99 each. Here's each one:

Aren't they fabulous? I bought 3! The colors aren't just specific to Halloween either, so you can wear them all year long.  With titles like: Behind Closed Doors, Jungle Fever, Tangled in My Web, and Buy Me a Drink, how can you resist?

CVS/Target/Grocery Stores,etc:


People StyleWatch, $3.99.  There are a lot of fashion magazines out there: InStyle, Lucky, Glamour, etc. but this is the average girl's book, with reasonably priced items.  Yes, there are $100+ pieces, but not $1000+ like InStyle.  I look forward to this magazine monthly, I LOVE it!


$10 (and under) Finds:

CVS/Target/etc:

 Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, $6.  Works wonders!

Target:


Goody doubleWEAR 2 in 1 Ponytailer and Bracelet, $5.99.  Sorry for the picture, I could NOT find a picture on the internet, including Goody's website! I was so excited when I saw these.  I constantly wear an elastic band on my wrist for my hair, and this just makes it FABULOUS.  It comes in silver and gold tone, and also in a necklace/headband form.  So cute!

$10+ Finds

Amazon/Barnes and Noble/BAM etc:

Average price range: $12-20.  This is the grown up girl's coloring book.  And it's incredible.  I love when I have a few minutes of down time to put on my ipod and pull this and my colored pencils out.  Here are some excerpts:



Sally Beauty Supply:


China Glaze Halloween 2011 Set, $12.99.  Mine came with an orange polish called Cross Iron 360 in place of the top coat, I guess it depends on your Sally's! How fun is this?

So is this something I should continue weekly? With more than nail polishes of course..

  4. I love People StyleWatch too! I think you are totally spot on! Its a fashion mag for normal girls who don't have $8k to spend on trouser socks :)
