Planner Haul | Target, Hobby Lobby, & Dollar Tree

Welcome to another post here on the blog. I’ve been pretty good at curbing my shopping habits especially with all the goodies that flood my Instagram and Facebook feeds, but every now and then I treat myself. I will say that I am very particular in what I buy. There has to be sale and if I’m not in love with it, I don’t buy it.

Dollar Tree Planner

For a while I’ve been wanting a 12 month planner so that I can schedule my blog posts. Nothing expensive, nothing fancy, just a 12 month planner. I found one recently at Dollar Tree that would work. I wanted to share how I revamped it to suit my needs along with how I decorated for August.

Dollar Tree Haul | Planner Overload

In the past week I’ve been to four Dollar Trees so I guess it’s safe to say I’m addicted. They’re literally everywhere. There’s two within 15 minutes from my house on opposite sides of town. There’s one on my way home from work and by my favorite grocery store. It’s kind of hard not to go in there when everything is $1. Yes, $1. No schemes like the Target One Spot which has upped a lot of their prices to the $3 range, but Dollar Tree is ‘Everything $1.’ Be sure to click the links below

Hobby Lobby + Dollar Tree Haul | Under $20

Welcome to yet another haul here on my channel. I’ve been accumulating quite a bit since I’m in the process of redecorating my room and reorganizing my office. Spring just screams DIY for me. The weather is warmer, the sun stays up longer, and I just have more energy. This haul is a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Stay tuned for future posts to see how it all comes together. Check out my previous hauls below:

I went into Dollar Tree to see if I could score more frames with quotes, but I also wanted to see what books were available. After watching all the books that BronzeGoddess01 shared in her hauls, I decided to go hunting again. After searching the shelves, I found two with a combined retail price of nearly $50. To score them for $2 is amazing. The titles are below plus the cheapest if interested.

I also picked up some planner goodies. In my last haul, I purchased the Jot Brand dots which are perfect for to-dos in any spread. I also picked up the correction tape, which I have yet to try out, plus the mini adhesives tapes. For them to be just $1 they work a hell of a lot better than the pack I purchased from Michaels. Amazing quality and I definitely need to pick up a few more.

I took another trip to yet another Dollar Tree in my area. They’re everywhere now which is great yet bad for my pockets. I was able to find their infamous “washi” tapes. I also picked up a mini tackle box to further organize all the trinkets I have in little baggies and nails for my gallery wall. How fun.

I went to Hobby Lobby since it was close to the initial Dollar Tree I went to. I ended up getting a piece of scrapbook paper to revamp my May divider plus some baseball stickers to mark my nephews games. I’ll have to suck up my dislike of the sport for my little guy.

My favorite find was for my gallery wall that I’m creating  in my bedroom. I thought it was a heart, but it’s clearly a diamond. I wanted to use the 40% off coupon they had available and I stumbled across it. It was only $9.99 and with the coupon I ended up paying $6. Now I plan on going back to see if I can find something similar or maybe I’ll try thrifting. Once the wall is done, I’ll definitely share.

$20 can go quite a long way, but I really need to curb my spending. Time to shop my home more.

Until next time …

 

 

Dollar Tree Haul + Organization

I have a lot of organizing, well reorganizing, that I would like to do  along with some decorating. What better place to shop than Dollar Tree. I went to two different locations that were recently opened. One was laid out better than the other, but had less of a selection. The one that had the most variety was a bit of a mess with a lot of stuff still in boxes, yet I found some great stuff. Be sure to check out my previous haul HERE. I’ll be separating this haul into three different sections: planner, home decor, and organization/cleaning.

PLANNER

I love shopping Dollar Tree for planner goodies and I was not disappointed in this trip. I’d love to find the emoji items, but I’ve had no luck. I absolutely love the JOT brand and I picked up some items I’ve seen on Instagram & YouTube, plus some other goodies. I found some page flags that I saw in a video from CoupontoProvide plus some chevron sticky notes. The best find were the dot stickers that are going to work in just about any layout. I definitely plan on going back to pick up a few more because I’m addicted.

Home Decor

IMG_3308

I’m going to be redesigning my bedroom by creating a gallery wall in front of my bed. I absolutely hate the blank space and right now I have a clock and random frames hanging. I found two frames at Dollar Tree that work well with what I’m going for. One says, “Bloom where you are planted,” and the other “Don’t quit your day dream.” Be on the lookout for my finished gallery wall coming soon.

ORGANIZATION / CLEANING

IMG_3300

I don’t buy a lot of my cleaning solutions from Dollar Tree, but the supplies are just what I need. I wanted to create an organization system under my bathroom cabinet which has my supplies just sitting there. I purchased two ‘Stack Them Up’ containers which will have cleaning supplies for my toilet in one and my sink/shower in the other. If I have space for a third one then I’ll buy another one, but I knew that two would work in the space.

I also picked up some multi-purpose cleaning wipes to put in my car ($1 from Rite Aid) along with some other towels that I split with my grandmother. One will be going in my car while the others will be going in the bathroom.

Lastly, I picked up some nail stickers. I chose this mint green teal patter over the tribal one and splattered paint that I saw. For just $1, why not? I love the variety that Dollar Tree has and I plan to share more hauls here in the future. for now I also want to shop my house and find uses for what I already have.

Target, Dollar Tree, Five Below HAUL

I’ve accumulated some amazing finds from Target, Dollar Tree and Five Below over the past few days. All of the items were from 30 cents, yes 30 cents to $5. The items range from gifts to decor and of course, planner goodies.

Target One Spot 

0402161834a~2

I went into Target for deodorant and pads yet I was sidetracked by the One Spot, as usual, and all of the Easter goodies that were on sale. I ended up purchasing what I went in for, but I was there for a lot loner scanning items. From the new Summer line that’s out I purchased a list pad, page flags, and sticky notes. I will say that Target is getting skimpy with the post-its. Yes they come in a pack of 2 for a $1, but it’s only 30 sheets each compared to what used to be 50 sheets each. As for the Easter goodies I scored the plaid pail for $1.50 (originally $5) and the list pads and the sock were 30 cents each from $1.

Dollar Tree

0402161836~2

I haven’t really found much in the Dollar Trees in my area that I have seen online such as the cute sweet treat list pad and sticky note set or any of the emoji list pads / sticky notes. There was a new Dollar Tree that opened in my area and when I walked in I was happy to find some of what I had seen, not the emoji stuff, but the thin washi tape. The store was a mess though. the shelves were in a complete disarray and there were boxes on boxes of stuff everywhere.

I did end up buying Paw Patrol magic towels for my nephews plus a basket to rotate their toys from upstairs to downstairs. For myself I picked up the display eisels, one small and large. The small one will sit on my desk with my business cards and the large one is for my planner. I can always move it to my kitchen as well to hold a cookbook.

Five Below

0402161611~2.jpg

My nephews absolutely love Five Below, but I’m really all about shopping in the $1-$3 price range. I will say that Five Below is a great place to find value gifts. I purchased a $5 for my 3 year old nephew. The real deal was a 100 piece Minion art set that had stickers, a coloring book, markers, crayons, stencils, and paints. Awesome deal for $5. The only one I saw of that set was for the Minions, but it’d be great if there were more. As for what’s on trend that was available, there’s Frozen of course plus some Paw Patrol and Finding Dory.
