Inspired by Ms. January, I have started couponing and saving reward points. I love the rush of getting a good deal! This weekend I had two good hauls. I'm so excited about my free loot, I have to share.
The first is the Eureka steamer from Sears, regular $99 but scored for free! I had Sears Club Points from a furniture purchase we made in the fall. There was a bonus Sears Club promotion running so I got loads of points. I bought a white Christmas tree in December with my points and still have enough for one more purchase (maybe this).
We had a big party last weekend so lots of dirty shoes were in my house. I just couldn't get all the dirt off the floors, so I turned to the steamer. It did the trick with no chemicals and it was kind of fun to use. Yup, I spent Friday night cleaning my floors and I had a blast!
The next part of my free loot was purchased this morning with my Shoppers' Optimum Points. Shoppers is the Canadian version of Rite Aid for any Americans out there. I buy my regular cosmetics there any time there is a bonus point sale (usually about once a month there is a 20x the points event). About three times year, I have enough points for at least $150 worth of stuff.
Today I had enough for $200 and decided to spend it on fancy make-up. Here's what I got.
Two Rimmel lipsticks - I have been craving a new pink lipstick for awhile
Dry Shampoo - This may sound gross, but I've stopped washing my hair every day. On the days between washings, I use this to tame the grease.
Pur minerals powder
Pur minerals powder brush - I use the cheap Shoppers' brand of makeup brushes that leave little black hairs all over my face. I'm going to start slowly replacing them.
Evital Face SPF 50 - My doctor thinks I am allergic to parabens because I've had some fierce reactions to lotions and sun screen. This is one of the few brands I know won't make my skin freak out.
Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener
La Roche-Posay SPF sunscreen - another brand that is gentle on my skin. It's a bit pricey for sunscreen but needed because I plan on spending many hours in the pool this summer.
Dior Show Mascara - My favorite mascara that I rarely buy. $31 for a tube of mascara that I'll go through in two months is kind of crazy. This is a big treat.
Evital Moisturizer - my daily moisturizer with SPF 30
Lise Watier blush brush
RDog seemed underwhelmed with my loot. 200 dollars of stuff fit in a very small bag. But I am excited because I got some great products and I had so much fun when I got home trying on my new stuff.
Any other Canadians out there collect Shoppers' points? Do you have any store points hauls to share?
