Every Sunday I take some time to peruse the Sunday paper.
“Woman in Black Reading a Newspaper” Rik Wouters, 1912
Sometimes I read outdoors…
“A Lady Reading a Newspaper” ~ Carl Larsson, 1886
…on a rare occasion I read it while still lying in bed.
“Woman Reading in Bed” ~ Gabriel Ferrier
I separate the circular’s and go through the coupons.
“ Reading Le Figaro” ~ Mary Cassatt, 1878
I refer to a list that I keep in the kitchen of things that are needed for the household. I cross reference the two to see if there are any matches.
“An Interior with a Woman Reading” ~ Carl Larsson, 1885
Of course the internet has also entered into the picture. Did you know if you go to the online site for Target and scroll down to the very bottom under a column listed as “Ways To Save” you can find even more coupons? I click and print on the ones that interest me. The beauty is that Target allows you to use their coupon in conjunction with a manufacturer’s coupon. It’s even better when the item goes on sale. So I wait. Sometimes a week, or two, or three. Then I will see it in the circular~ the item is on sale.
TIP: I am thankful that I printed out the Target coupons ahead of time because when the item finally goes on sale the coupon is not available.
Last week I purchased a lightweight Mossimo summer sweater and a thin Room Essentials white cotton blanket. They were on sale and I had a coupon for each item too. Crazy good prices that make me (and my wallet) deliriously happy.
I imagine that the entire family might enjoy the new cotton blanket.
“Woman Lying on a Bench” ~ Carl Larsson, 1913
But the super bargain was the Mrs. Meyers products. I have spoken of my love for Mrs. Meyer before. The company uses natural ingredients and sweet smelling essential oils. The cleaning products are biodegradable and packaged in recyclable bottles.
I had a manufacturer’s coupon and a Target coupon (which I had printed out 2 weeks prior). I had a hunch that the products would go on sale to celebrate Earth Day. My hunch was right. So I picked you up one of my favorites to include in the upcoming DTA Mother’s Day Giveaway.
Have a beautiful May Day!
