Michaels Clearance Home Decor Haul

I recently went to Michaels just to see what they had in stock. I’ve been eyeing a personal planner for quite some time, but I still haven’t bought it. The planner sale was buy 1 get one 50% off. Yeah, that’s not good enough for me. I prefer to use a 50% off coupon on one item. Anyway, while I didn’t purchase any planner items, I found the mother load of home decor. I’m talking 70% and 80% off.

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

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.

Fall Haul Pt. 1

With less than a week left in October, I think it’s safe to still post a fall haul. Then again I can post it up right until Thanksgiving. Although Winter doesn’t begin officially until December 21st, once Thanksgiving is over it becomes Winter for me. I love posting hauls and watching them on YouTube. This time around I bought NO CLOTHES (shocking), but I stick to leggings and sweaters in the fall anyway and I really don’t need anymore. I stocked up on my essentials, treated myself to a pair of shoes, and snagged a couple candles from Bath & Body Works. Oh and I received something yummy in the mail. I’ll get to that later.

IMG_3941First up are my essentials that I had to restock on. Aside from razors and other feminine products, I had to get my favorite hair care product, Organix ‘Renewing Argon Oil of Morocco.’ With having relaxed hair this stuff works wonders. After washing and conditions my hair, I towel dry and apply this oil while its damp before blowdrying. It makes my hair so soft and I can flatiron my hair and not have to again for nearly two weeks and I owe it all to this product. It goes a long way and I had a mini size from a Organix 3 Piece Starter Kit that lasted me from October to this past late March/April.  I’ve seen the results of my hair with and without it and THIS is amazing; highly recommend.

IMG_3937Next up are my shoes from DSW. I’m not a huge fan of DSW, but I had a $15/$49 or more coupon so I took advantage. I didn’t get sneakers and a pair of boots I wanted were $150 and then I saw these. The heel is the perfect height, they are extremely comfortable and I snagged them for $40 with the coupon. The brand is Diba and the shoe is called ‘Femma’ for those interested.

IMG_3931From Bath & Body Works I picked up two candles in their 2/$22 sale, ‘Green Apple Orchard and ‘Autumn Sky. These two candles smell absolutely AMAZING! I was looking for a candle that had more of a manly scent and ‘Autumn Sky’ is PERFECT. I can’t wait to light ‘Green Apple Orchard’ on Thanksgiving.

Last but not least I jumped on the Nature Box bandwagon. My full review will go live on Wednesday (10/26/14).

In my next haul expect to see items from ShoeDazzle and Sephora.
