Shoppers Drug Mart Deals – Revlon, Quo and Allude

I have made a few trips to Shoppers Drug Mart in the past few days and picked up some various deals along the way.

Trip #1
$0.50 Allude pantyhose, stockings and knee highs
$0.50 Allude pantyhose, stockings and knee highs
7 boxes – $3.92 after tax

Browsing around Shoppers Drug Mart the other day when I saw this HUGE table of various Allude pantyhose, stockings and knee highs – I really don’t wear them much. But it is something I never have when I want it and they are always so expensive and I normally only get one wear out of them. Damn finger nails. I picked up 7 boxes – some boxes had multiple pairs. Probably a tad too many, but I have a few friends I can donate too. I just couldn’t resist, even a half decent pair from the dollar store is $2.

Trips #2 and #3
Cheap Revlon beauty tools (nail clippers and tweezers) + Cheap compact mirrors

I also earned 1600 bonus points for this trip, for every 2 Revlon products you bought you got 800 bonus points. Also, in case anyone was wondering – the 30% sale at Shoppers Drug Mart was cheaper than Walmart. I checked! haha

I found 2 Quo Compact Mirrors in a $1.00 at Shoppers Drug Mart last night. For a while now I have been thinking how badly I need a mirror in my purse so I was super happy to find these.

Boxing Day Shopping: Hallmark 2011 Keepsake Christmas Tree Ornaments 50% Off

This post is a few days late…

I braved the malls on boxing day mostly for one thing, Hallmark. I was there first thing to get dibs on all the half price keepsake ornaments. Even at 50% off they are still on the pricier side, but you have to indulged sometimes.

While I was out I did get a couple other things but I just wanted to share the decorations I picked up because I love them so much.

Look Who’s Pook-a-Looz! (Mickey Mouse) Hallmark Keepsake Ornament 2011

Happiness Is A Warm Cookie (Peanuts) Hallmark Keepsake Ornament 2011
Hello, Snow! (Winnie The Pooh) Hallmark Keepsake Ornament 2011

As you can see I seriously have a problem with the Hallmark decorations. I may have went a bit overboard… may. I also bought Gizmo earlier in the year, happy I did because they were sold out on boxing day. Have also spent some time on eBay buying up a few of the Star Wars ships for my fiance. We really do have a pretty kick ass Christmas tree!

There is a couple more I have my eye on, but only if I can get them 75% off.

Other than Hallmark I picked up a few candles 75% off at Bath and Body Works – I love Bath and Body Works!

Super Cute Built Lunch Tote and Cheap Cupcake Cups

I didn’t use any coupons for these finds.

First up I found this really super BUILT Lunch Tote in French Bull Vine / Raspberry Sorbet colour… or should I say flavor? I don’t think the name gets any better then that either. I love Raspberry Sorbet and French Bull dogs! hah – I am a nerd, I know.

I found it on a clearance table at one of our local Staples. They had a couple and two different styles marked down to $9.97 from $19.99 on top of that they had 50% off. It came to $5.58 after tax.

My next find was cute cupcake cups at Dollarama – $1 for 60 cupcake wrappers is pretty reasonable. They are nice quality and the store had a lot of different designs. I had a really hard time limiting myself to just 3. I noticed they are a Dollarama product so I hope they always have them in stock.
