Jillian’s 99 Cents Only Shopping Trip 7/29

Jillians 99 Cents 729

1. Planting Pot
2. Gold Peak Tea Lemon – 59oz
3. Ritz Fresh Stacks Everything Crackers – 11.8oz
4. Suave Professionals Waterless Foam Shampoo – 4oz
5. Expressions Pony-O’s
6. Rice A Roni Whole Grain Chicken & Herb Classico – 3.8oz
7. Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard – 8oz
8. Lea & Perrins Marine-In-A-Bag Roasted Garlic Balsamic – 12oz
9. Organic Bella Italia Spaghetti – 16oz
10. Organic FireSide Wheat Thin Crackers – 8oz
11. Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Potatoes Mashed 2 pack – 11.75oz
12. Heinz BBQ Sauce Honey – 19oz

A planting pot for $0.99 is lovely! So many fun pinterested-inspired things you could do, including a patio herb garden, painted pot with flowers for a gift, or heavens know what other creative things you could do. And the price is right for trying some fun crafts!

Suave Professional’s has this Waterless Foam Shampoo that (per the bottle) is salon tested to compare with the Bumble and Bumble version. I used to use Bumble and Bumble in college when I frivolously spent money and while I do love their products… they surely aren’t frugal. Such an interesting concept after the popularity of dry shampoos and now conditioner washing, which is where you only cleanse with a light conditioner. So many options. Get to your local store to try this for yourself!!

Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard isn’t a brand I’ve seen before at 99 cents only stores, so voila! I LOVE dipping pretzels (especially the sticks) in some spicy brown mustard. This mustard with a bag of pretzels would be less than a $2.00 snack for at least one week’s worth. A yummy and super frugal treat for your lunch!

Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Potatoes… yum. And two packs in a box. Yum, yum, yum.


$.21 Pampers Diapers at Target

Remember that coupon I posted for $10 off $40 at Target.com yesterday? Well I’ve got a deal for ya if you’ve got a baby in diapers!

TargetDiaperDeal

Here’s the deal:

1. Add any 2 BOXED Pampers to your cart at Target.com ($34.99 avg. price)

2. At checkout be sure to select STORE PICKUP FREE to receive your $10 instant discount.

3. When you purchase 2 participating Pampers boxed diapers you receive a $20 Target Gift Card. Be sure to select how you’d like to receive that via email, text or mailed.

4. Your total will be around $59.98 depending on the diapers you purchase.

For me my total was $59.95 for 192 diapers so that’s about $.26 a diaper BEFORE the gift card and $.21 after the Target gift card. That’s a pretty great price! PLUS, if you have a Target Red Card you’ll save an additional 5%. With all the security happenings lately, I’m skeptical and still haven’t gotten one….

I didn’t find any Pampers to compare over at Amazon even with Subscribe and Save!

Keep in mind you should be able to do this up to 4 times at Target.com!

Thanks to reader Kelly for the heads up!

TOMS Campus Classics Shoes: Take $15 OFF (Exp. 8/4)

Toms Campus shoes

If your son or daughter is going off to college, a pair of TOMS Collegiate shoes would be  a fun “going away present” for them!  And today through August 4th you can take $15 off TOMS Campus Classics when you use promo code SPIRIT15 at checkout . Keep in mind that although your school might not be mentioned specifically by name, many schools share the same colors, so you are likely to find the ones that represent your college (or high school).

TOMS shoes are so comfy and light, these Campus Classics  make a great everyday casual shoe. I know that I can walk for hours on end with my TOMS and by the end of the day my feet feel just fine! If you have never bought TOMS keep in mind that these shoes stretch a bit, so for a better fit, select a half size down. They might be a bit snug at first but will end up fitting just right after the first few days of using them.

Increase Your Home Value with these 4 Low-Cost Projects

Increase Your Home Value with These 4 Low-Cost Projects

You’ve been putting off that list of home improvement projects for years. But now that you’re planning to move, it’s time to start checking things off that list to get the most for your house. With limited time and money, you know you can’t do it all—which projects take priority when it comes to impacting your bottom line? Here are four projects that can help you boost your home’s value so you can sell it for more. I know that these are things that I’ve looked for when I have gone house hunting in the past!

Replace the Roof

When potential buyers see an old roof with missing tiles, they see thousands of dollars disappearing from their bank account and often move on to the next house. Face it, roof trouble can be intimidating—after all that’s why you’ve been putting it off yourself. However, you’ll recoup an average of over 67 percent of your costs in added value by implementing new roofing solutions, according to the latest national data from Remodeling Magazine’s 2014 Cost vs. Value report.

I have driven past homes with our real estate agent and have told her not to bother with a few houses that had old wood shingle roofing that was screaming to be repaired. I can handle doing some light remodeling in a house I’m about to buy, but changing the roof is just too daunting. So by doing this before putting your house on the market, you are increasing your home’s curb appeal tremendously.

Give the Kitchen and Bathrooms a Face-lift

As the heart of the house, this is one area of the home that will be heavily critiqued by potential buyers. An outdated kitchen can scare off many buyers who are afraid of doing a major remodel. You don’t have to renovate the entire space, but make sure it’s reasonably up-to-date, organized and clean. Consider shortcuts to save money while making an impact, such as refacing cabinets and pulls instead of installing new cabinetry.

If you need new counter tops, consider an affordable and neutral toned option such as solid surface counter tops instead of shelling out for pricey granite or marble. Minor kitchen remodels will have a great impact on potential buyer’s perception of the house. The same goes for bathrooms! Change the cabinet pulls, get a new faucet, update the towel racks. All these things will give a welcome face-lift that new buyers will love.

Evaluate the Lighting

Bright and airy will also trump dark or artificially lit spaces. Natural light is a real commodity in the housing market. Look around your home and find areas that could use an improved lighting scheme. Good lighting can make a small space feel large. And a dark hallway or room can really be a big turnoff.

Home improvement pros at This Old House recommend installing sun tubes in any dark areas. These affordable pseudo skylights use highly reflective material to bring more light into a space through small tubes that are much easier and less expensive to install than traditional skylights.  This is also a good time to get rid of any dated-looking light fixtures and replace them with something new and current. Same goes for the switch plates. If you have any cracked ones, missing ones or yellowed/stained one, you should replace them!

Lighten Up the Landscaping

Boost your curb appeal with a thorough overhaul of the landscaping. Trim back any overgrown shrubbery or trees to give your yard a clean, manicured look. Replace any dead plants with new flowers and spread a fresh layer of mulch over the flowerbeds. Make sure all footpaths are cleared, well lit and in good condition.

Landscaping is one of the top three home improvement investments that yield the most return.  The goal is to show that your home is well taken care of. A well tended garden is a reflection of owners who cared about the house. So when potential buyers see a nice landscaped area, they will immediately get a good vibe for the entire house!
