Bath & Body Works-A budget friendly haul.


When I first thought about doing this blog I was going to mention that someone needs to revoke my Bath & Body Works privileges because I shop there way too much, but then I remembered how great of a deal I got and scrapped that idea. 
I have a shopping addiction, I also have a budget that I stick to each month so I've learned how to get what I want for the price that I want.
Here we go.


My box of goodies. 

I got this 4oz Peach Bellini candle that smells divine for $3.80 it's originally $10.

I've been wanting one of these candle sleeves for a while and to me $5 was just too much, but $2 was perfect.

I have a soft spot for black cats, so much that we have one, his name is Nermal.
So I had to pick this up, he is normally $5.50 and I got him for $2.20.

I got two of these mini candles that are normally $3.50 each, sometimes they'll have deals like 3 for $5. I got these for $1.40 each. 

These 8oz body scrubs are supposed to be $14each and I got them for $2.80 each! 

I got these two pocket bacs for $.60 each. *Note: BBW is having an awesome deal on Halloween pocket bacs right now for as low as $.38!*

I also picked up these for $1.40 each and they were originally $7 each.

BBW always sells their new preview scent for a $1, if you like the scent, it is wise to pick up a few of these because the price per once is cheaper than picking up a large size. I got this for $.80.

My order total should have been $90 minus tax and shipping.
My total that I actually paid was $30, shipped, plus cash back for ordering through Ebates.com.

To get what you want for the price that you want, you have stalk your prey....wait for sales, combine sales with coupons and shop through a site like Ebates that gives you cash back.
Instead of getting items when they first come out, wait. They will go on sale and for items like the Halloween collection, they are on sale and clearance right now and Halloween hasn't even passed yet. You can always find coupons on Retailmenot.com.
