My Toys R Us, Kohls and Marshall’s Trip

Sunday was one of those big errand days for me. We try to combine errands so we aren’t going out every week shopping. We had some gift cards to use up and a few groceries to get, so we left on our mission right after church.

I wanted to check out the Disney Store for Halloween costumes. I love their costumes because they are usually so well made. I try to hit that store as well as several others to stock up on Halloween costumes for the kids in bigger sizes. Not only can they use them for Halloween, but they can also use them to play dress up.

I didn’t actually make it to the Disney Store because we spent so much time at Toys R us. They had their costumes already marked down to 75% off! This was a good deal, and they did carry some of the favorite kids characters, such as the Little Mermaid, Star Wars Darth Vasder and Storm Trooper, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. They also had some generic costumes, as well. I saw a lot left over for little ones, especially. The costumes ranged from $3 to $10 after the discount.

Toys R Us also has a lot of deals that gave you free items, from gift cards when you buy Disney movies, to a free Crayola anniversary tin set when you buy Crayola products and a free Spongebob Squarepants game when you bought two other games. A large, nice plush dog was available for only $4.99 when you spent $50.

Another good deal that I picked up for my daughter was the Barbie and the Three Musketeers DVD for only $9.99. This is the newest Barbie DVD, so finding it for that price was pretty good.

Select Lego (and other building blocks) sets were on sale as well, and they are always a sure things with kids. The sets averaged about $5 off, when it is rare to find any sale on Legos, Duplos or Mega Bloks. The Lego Website does have a few other deals going on, including a free shipping deal.

Next, I went to Marshall’s Homegoods store. I usually find good deals there. In fact, I picked up the same tablecloth I later saw at Kohls for much less! The real deal at the Homegoods store were the Halloween costumes again. They had plush, PLUSH! animal costumes for only $2 in sizes up to 5T. I picked up a monkey and a beaver. They were warm and thick.

My last bargain hunting stop was at Kohls. They had a lot of stuff for the home on sale, such as 60 percent off of table linens. Thanksgiving and Christmas seasonal themes were already marked down. It just turned November, didn’t it?

Did you do any shopping this weekend? If so, what deals did you find?

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
