A Store for Teenagers: Rue 21

blog-swimThis weekend, I am planning a shopping trip with my sister. She is in high school and since I don’t live at home anymore, I feel like I don’t see her as often as I’d like to. We’re both super busy, so it’s nice that this weekend worked out for us to take time together!

I asked her to let me know what stores she wanted to go to so that I could pick a mall for us to go to. I really don’t mind traveling a little way away if it means that there’s more stores that we can get to. One of the main stores my sister wants to shop at is Rue 21. They are having a pretty big sale this weekend and she wants to check it out. Have you ever shopped here? It looks like they have things for guys and girls and carry clothing, shoes, and accessories. I can’t wait for our shopping day!

I Love Shopping at Walgreens

blog-wgI don’t just go to Walgreens to pick up my prescriptions every month. I used to just walk in, pick up my scripts, and head back out the door. One day, there was a bit of a wait as I decided to drop them off later in the afternoon. I decided to walk around and check out the store a little bit.

I found out that they have a great photo department that makes a ton of different prints and enlargements, a decent selection of drugstore lines of make-up, some household items and even a few groceries. It’s a great place to stop if you need a few things on the way home for the day.

I Get All My Pet Supplies at Petco

blog-petcoOur dog is pretty spoiled and is a member of the family. I love her dearly and want to get her the best of the best. This is why I get her treats and supplies at Petco. They have awesome products for dogs and other animals, too! They have food, treats, leashes, beds, dishes, toys and so much more. They have plenty of supplies for other animals, too, including things for fish, cats, ferrets, birds, reptiles, and small rodents (mice, hamsters, rats, etc). They even sell some pets, too.

I find that Petco has quite a few deals and I can save a lot of money. I am on a budget, so I try to save money when I can. Right now, they have a sale where you can get $10 off and free shipping on your order of $49 or more.

Can’t Stop Shopping at Target

blog-targetThere are so many things at Target that it’s just an endless amount of good finds, great products, good deals, and fun shopping!

I love that I can get things at Target from groceries to clothing and absolutely everything in between including home decor items, health and beauty products, gifts for others, and so much more. Just an example of my shopping trip today including picking up prescriptions, getting treats for my dog, picking up a pair of shoes to wear to a wedding that I’m going to this weekend, choosing a wedding gift off of a registry for said wedding, getting toilet paper and hairspray, and of course my magazine that I always pick up when I’m checking out.

Save big if you shop at Target by signing up for their RedCard and downloading the CartWheel App on your smartphone.

Shutterfly Has Some Awesome Invitations

blog-shutterflyIt seems as though my fridge surface is getting filled very quickly with invitations of all sorts: graduation invites, bridal shower invites, bachelorette party invites, and my favorite–wedding invites! Since summer is here and in full swing, it sure seems like things are getting more and more busy. I feel like my weekends are filling up and my weeks are spend trying to either prepare for or recover from the weekends!

The pricing is pretty reasonable and it seems pretty easy to do the ordering. Whether you need 5 invites, or 200, they have you covered!
