Do you take advantage of layaway offers in order to nab goodies for the holidays while they are on sale? While I've personally never used layaway, I know many people who have and I find it so interesting. I can see the convenience of this option, especially when you have a large family to shop for or you need to make a new purchase when your old TV bites the dust, but I never realized that it was such a heavy phenomenon.
My daughter is turning 13 in a few weeks and I've been scouring the web for a truly special gift. She's an artist so I was thinking about getting a fun art subscription box for her. The reviews for ArtSnacks look pretty promising. The box comes with 4-5 full-sized products (usually paint brushes, paints, ink pens and pencils) as well as some advice about how to use them. There's also a little piece of candy included, which would just go wasted since I don't eat sugar and my picky kid only likes chocolate!
Target announced that their next Beauty Box will contain natural beauty items to give shoppers a taste of beauty products that are better for them and the environment. Some items you will find in the box include Schmidt's natural deoderant, Weleda Skin Food moisturizer, Love Beauty & Planet hair care products, African black soap mud mask and more.
Maybe our parents' generation had the leg lamps of A Christmas Story fame, but they didn't have these adorable chickie lamps from Amazon.com. They are just $18 today and are not only rechargeable but made with eco-friendly silicone. It's after Easter but still an adorable addition to a nursery.
The site also has cool Millennium Falcon speakers available that are on sale for $41. It's amazing how many different kinds of speakers are available today and these may be my favorites!

Everyone is trying to save a buck these days, and Brandless is a new store that's helping us do it. Everything at Brandless is $3, giving you the savings of a brand-free product that's not quite the savings of, say, Aldi, but may be cheaper than many store brands.
Most of us love to try new games, but they can cost so much money! Gaming cafes make it easier to try games out, but you can't always get everyone you want to play at the cafe. Plus, there's the cost of entry. Did you know that there are lots of print and play games that you can try at home before buying games? One of the most popular games of our time, Cards Against Humanity, is even available for free download!
Easter is less than a month away (and on April Fool's Day, no less, which gives you lots of chances to make it intersting this year!) and sales are already starting to run for the holiday. Between chocolate bunnies, plastic eggs and baskets, what do you need, and where will you get it?

My aunt has always called it "TAR JAY," but to most people, Target is the place to get toilet paper and leave with $152 worth of stuff you never knew you needed... sigh. But the shoppers in the know are faring much better off since they know the secrets to shopping at the store.
Are you already enjoying all of Valentine's sales going on everywhere? It's the day of, so some of them won't be going on until tomorrow or the day after. That's okay; save a few dollars and wait for tomorrow. It will be worth it! Every year I shop at Target the day after Valentine's Day. I limit myself to $4 or $5 and still get a bunch of stuff!
