    Hi ladies!! Some pics below on some great purchases I made not too long ago.

    A couple weeks back, I posted about the Michael's travel tin candles sale, which is now over but the candles are regularly priced for $1 - still a great deal =) My scents were Lemon Verbena, Fresh Lilac, Black Cherry, Coastline and Vanilla Cupcake ~ I know there are others as well.

    Also, found some journals with a great floral design on the cover in many different colors, and I know they also had pad and pen sets with the same designs all for $1 ~ another great find!!

    Lastly, I bought more travel tin candles at Pier 1 for $1.88 on clearance, which have amazing scents that I will put in special bags made for family and my bridesmaids. There were tons of these at 2 Pier 1's that I went to, so I'm sure there's plenty at all stores. The scents I got were First Rain, White Pomegranate, Citrus Cilantro, Buttercream Vanilla, Mango Papaya, Aspen Flower, Island Orchid, and Ginger Peach. They all smell so good, but I think the tropical scents go with a beach themed wedding!!!

    So here are the pics ~ happy shopping!!!!

        Awesome deal. I saw those journals in our Michael's, but they were $1.50. LoL.

                  I stopped by Michael's yesterday and bought some lip balm! It was on clearance for a buck a piece... (blackcurrant & apple flavours) They are a little nicer than the "Chapette" I had bought at the dollar store (must return!)

                  They also had 'coozies' for a dollar on clearance. Don't know what the price would be usually but I opted not to get them...

                  Picked up hand sanitizers (2 for a dollar) Getting there... slowly but surely! Some tums, kleenex... and some bath 'fizzers' (for the gals!)

                    Yes!!!! I went to a local dollar store and found the best OOT bags last night. But, then I looked at the price tag and they were $10.00 each!!!! I am not paying that much for them. Plus, that isn't really fair being at from a dollar store.

                    I need to go to our Michael's again, maybe after my afternoon nap. See if I can find some excellent deals.

                      Great finds! I picked up the same candles from Michaels. I love the blue coastline smell.

                      Thanks for sharing!
