Shopping Spottings

July 12, 2009


Nathan and I went out this afternoon to pick up a few more Jewel deals where the catalinas were ending today. While we were out, I saw a few things worth mentioning.

Target – They still had some school items in their $1 area. Ours had a lot of their $1 stuff marked down 75% off. Also, their smoothies in their cafe area are on sale for $1 this week. It might make for a nice little treat for you to share with the kiddos. They also have a new thing for upcoming releasing video games. You buy a $1 reservation card. When your game gets released and you buy it with the card, you earn a $5 Target Giftcard! So if you need to buy any for any reason, you may want to check it out.

Michael’s – They also had some school items in their dollar area. Ours had a large display of teaching items that were 30% off. This included whiteboards, corkboards, etc. I found the cutest monthly calendar wipe-off board for $7. I haven’t decided if I’m going to hang it in our kitchen for a monthly menu planner or in my office. They also had flip flops for $1.

Jewel – I discovered they have a dollar area, too! Theirs had shopping list and menu planner pads. They also had a few kids school items.

So if you are in the need for some inexpensive activities to do with the younger kids this summer, you may want to check out the $1 bins in your local stores. Activity books and such seem to be the popular item right now. They would make great traveling items, too.

Did you find anything while you were out shopping today? Any good unadvertised deals or even advertised? Leave us a linky or comment!
