Friday Favorites: Vol #33

Happy Friday my loves!!!!

I am sooo excited that it's the end of the week! Cheers to the freaking weekend already. I started back to work a couple of weeks ago so my days are dragging something serious. It's always a pleasure when the weekend rolls around. As I mentioned in this post, I'm super excited about THIS weekend in particular because I will be attending my very first blogger event. My goal is to actually attend one of the big conferences within the next year so we shall see how well that goes. 

I also love Fridays on the blog because once a month I share with you some of my favorite things that took place within the month. Lots of deals, savings, and all around good ish!!

Let's begin with Target's latest clearance sale which happened a few weekends ago. For two days, all of their summer clearance was an additional 20% off. I went absolutely nuts when I saw this because for one, I've never seen them have a sale like this; two, I had been eyeing tons of cute summer pieces waiting for them to be reduced; and three, Target is my all time favorite store in the whole wide world so it was only right that I partake in the madness. Speaking of madness, I recently collaborated with Target for a super sweet post about their wedding registry. See what all the fuss is about here.

FREE gift cards that I won through a sweepstakes on Crowdtap. Crowdtap is a brand developing program that offers you a chance to sound off about your favorite brands and products through random surveys and various opportunities to share new brands through social media. They also offer sample shares every once in a while. A while ago, I was chosen to receive a sample share opportunity from Old Navy where my bestie and I both got to try their new denim for FREE.  

PS: has a crazy sale going on this weekend...$4 for $25 worth of restaurant certificates. Um yes, I'll take them!

September magazine subscriptions. All or most of these were FREE!!! I usually share the deals that I get on my Facebook page so be sure to 'like' the page by clicking here.

This week's library find. Such a great book with awesome shopping tips.

Recent thrift store finds. I love finding critically acclaimed self help books while thrifting. Great titles for only a small fraction of the cost!

I recently got myself back into couponing and I've been saving a ton since. It's very time consuming but so well worth it. This trip to Harris Teeter cost me $43.xx but then I received a promotion from Quilted Northern that gave me back $15 just for purchasing their brand and filling out a short survey for them. That took my total down to $27.xx for this shopping trip.

I love stocking up on paper products and a couple of weeks ago CVS was having a great special. I believe I spent $28.xx on this trip and got back $16 bringing my total down to $12.xx for this haul. I LOVE CVS...their prices may seem a little expensive but they always, always, always offer great coupons and money rewards back on featured products.

Now...on to the cute baby stuff.

My lil Peanut's very first pair of Timberland boots. Found at the thrift for $5!!! They're in such great condition too. Since he will be born in December, he can wear them immediately to keep his little toes warm during the winter months. 

So my local library has a 'FREE Magazine' box. I like to go there often just to see what they have in the box. And all of the magazines that I showed you previously, from my own personal stash, get donated into this box once I'm done reading and ripping out my inspiration pages from them. Recently I lucked up on a whole slew of old Parents magazines. I'm sure these have some inspiration gems hidden in them.

Another great find from the thrift. I saw this same book in Target for $20 last week and I got it for $1. I don't do full price.

My absolutely FREE pamper purchase from This deal was too sweet to pass up on. They always offer great deals on diapers when you sign up for the Amazon Mom program. Like my FB Page for more in depth breakdowns of deals like this. 

Just in case you are a new visitor, the honey and I are having a BOY this December. We are completely overjoyed.  Read more about our gender reveal here.

What a way to end a post!!!
