Glade Expressions Mist on clearance at Target

Glade Expressions Mist on clearance at Target

Today I had to run to Target to grab a few things. (It was really only 1 thing but if any of you have ever shopped at Target before, you know that there is no such thing as only coming out with  thing!!)

Since I love to sneak a peek at the clearance spots, I quick grabbed a few coupons in case I came across any good deals. Some of the coupons I brought with me were included $2 Glade Expressions Mist and $4 Glade Expressions Oil Diffusers. I also had $1 Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser Target coupons.

I felt like I hit the jackpot!! The Glade Expressions Oil diffusers were priced at $5.99. (regular price) The final price came out to $0.99 after the stacked coupons. (Target $1 off coupon here, $4 manufacturer coupon here.)

The Glade Expressions Mist was marked on clearance at $2.54. With the coupons that I had, it made them just $0.54 each!! The $2 off coupon is available on the Target website here. (There is also a $2 coupon here and here.)

Clearance price!

I had recently been given these for free to review through BzzAgent and I fell in love with them! I was so happy to find them at an awesome stock up price! I love a good smelling house and I love when I don’t have to pay a lot to do so!!

Cafe Escapes

Being a part of BzzAgent gives me an opportunity to try out new products and then spread the word and my opinion. This week, I had the opportunity to try out Cafe Escapes K-Cups.

Being an avid coffee drinker,  I am always willing to try a new brew or brand. I like tasting a wide variety and keeping a selection on hand. This was an excellent opportunity for me because I received 2 sample packs that included many different varieties. They included: cafe vanilla, cafe caramel, mocha chocolate, chai latte, dark chocolate hot cocoa, and milk chocolate hot cocoa.

We had fun sampling the different varieties and seeing which ones we liked best. I liked the cafe caramel the best. It had a smooth caramel flavor and is just the right mixture of sweet and creamy without having to add sugar or creamer. My husband thought the cafe vanilla was good, just weak. When made with a smaller cup of water, it was much better and quite delicious. All of the hot cocoa k-cups were great and my daughter loved them. After trying the cafe vanilla, we decided to try these with the smaller cup option as well and we were glad we did. They were the perfect blend for cocoa. Not watery and very rich in chocolate flavor.

Although very delicious, I do not see these as replacing a cup of coffee. They don’t carry the same punch that coffee gives you BUT I can see these as being an addition to the supply on hand for when I am wanting a little something extra. They are more like a specialty drink and a treat.

The packs of K-cups are very comparatively priced with other packs of K-cups. They range from $6.99 – $9.99 at my local ShopRite. They are also available at many other grocery stores and mass merchandisers.

Today, I will be playing “coupon fairy.” I will be out and about doing my shopping and I am armed with coupons that I received from BzzAgent. I will be looking to share the savings in the coffee aisle with others.

Be My Valentine

This weekend, Jasmine and I decided to stay in the Valentine’s Day spirit by making some crafts. One of our crafts was inspired by something that I had seen in this month’s issue of Family Fun magazine. It was a hand-made card that we both knew would be awesome for her poppy and we were excited to do our own.

We collected our supplies and got to work. We needed construction paper (we used 3 different colors), glue, a pencil, scissors, and any other various craft supplies to decorate. (We opted to use red foam stickers in a Valentine’s Day theme. )

Supplies needed

The first thing we did was to take our 1st sheet of paper and fold it in half. We chose to use plain white as this was the base of the card and we would be writing on the inside. Then, we used a 2nd sheet of paper (red) and traced Jasmine’s hand. I helped her with this part to make sure we got all fingers and to make sure her fingers weren’t too spaced apart. Then, she cut out the hand, as well as a large heart from the 3rd piece of paper (pink).

Cutting out shapes

The next thing she did was fold over the middle and ring finger on the hand she cut out. Only fold them over half way, as if you are folding at the knuckles, to make the “I love you” hand sign.

Folding fingers

Next, she glued on all of the stuff on the front. She glued the hand inside the heart and then the heart onto the front of the card. Then, she began decorating it by adding text to the front and the foam stickers. (She put a foam heart in the center of the hand because it reminded her of one of her favorite books called, The Kissing Hand. )

finishing front of card

Lastly, she filled in a heart filled message on the inside of the card for her intended recipient. She loved how it came out and is excited to mail it out.
