Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Archive for February 2012

I had to make a return to Boscov’s yesterday, I told Malik the shoe bag wouldn’t work in his “doorless” closet…but did he listen …no! Anywho, as I was making the return I noticed this display of Wicker Baskets for $1.99 each and of course my mind began thinking of several storage uses: In the bathroom/powder room: hair clips, cotton balls, Q-Tips, makeup, hand towels, makeup, perfume, guest towels, potpourri. In the kitchen: tea bags, napkins, vitamin bottles, seasoning package’s, etc., In the bedroom: bracelets, rings, pins, remote control, potpourri, small toys, etc. In the office: paper clips, pens, post it notes, desk drawer organizers. The baskets can also be spray painted to match the decor of any room.


I stopped at Food Lion on the way home for a few things but I am always searching for new dinner ideas, we have eaten so much chicken that I’m afraid one day we’ll sprout feathers! As usual Food Lion had quite a few specials including in the produce section. I picked up bell peppers and onions, as well as a package of ground turkey also on sale, I will check for a Stuffed Peppers recipe to use this week.

Also on sale were the Uncle Ben’s Rice in the small, microwavable containers which are a perfect size for my NutriSystem program. $1.00 each, coupon was $1.00 off 2 ~ with coupon .50 cents each

I always check the beauty section for sales and close outs and was able to use my $1.00 off coupons for Garnier Fructis shampoos and conditioners on sale for $2.99 each ~ with coupons $1.99 each

At the register I was asked if I’d like to donate $1.00, for Easter Seals which is a charity that is near and dear to my heart so of course I said, “yes”. For the donation I was given a pamphlet which contained $9.50, worth of coupons one of which was $1.00, off the Oreo Cookies I had in just purchased – BINGO more savings ~ who said, “no good deed goes unrewarded”? ~ with coupon $1.99

Today’s “staycation” day was spent shopping with my sons. Our first stop was Burlington Coat Factory, my son found a few vests on sale for $15.99, he is attending a Sweet 16 party tonight. I found yet another pair of black heels for $9.99, two dresses for under $20 and two tops under $10.00.

Our next stop was to DSW, I got a $100. gift card from hubby on Valentine’s Day. I saw a few pair that I really liked but am waiting on the Spring styles, however, I did find these on clearance for $20.00.

Last stop was to Boscov’s where I purchased several “As seen on TV” products including the new Lint Lizard, I have a fear of the dryer catching on fire. I also found nail decals similar to Sally Hansen’s on sale for .99cent, regularly $2.99.

As Rep I buy most of my cosmetics from Avon, but I am glad that I cut out the Loreal Cosmetics coupons from the Sunday circular! Rumor has it that Target is redesigning it’s makeup displays so there are alot of cosmetics and nailwear on clearance and tonight I made my first Loreal purchase with coupons! P.S You get an additional 5cents off for bringing in your own shopping bag.

Make sure you check the “end caps” for additional clearance items.

I also found these cute faux suede booties for $8.48, believe it or not I have a pair of heels in the same color so I may use some fabric paint to change the color or colorblock them.

Target also had some cute dresses on clearance, $10.00-$12.00
