for the home


Currently coveting these lately. I am torn between the yellow and the gray rug. Hubby dubbed the rugs I currently have with the same design as the throw as “prison rugs.” There is no doubt he will name the throw “prison throw.” ^.~))

Have a happy long weekend!



Before I proceed:
Hurry get your Target beauty bag full of goodies – link! I’ve received 3 of their previous bags. It’s a great way to sample beauty products for free and get a cute cosmetics bag. You will have to like them on facebook and sign up for one. Good luck.

Now onto my adventure:
I’m not that obssessed with Target. I just happened to go almost every week these days. I purchased the above Method cleaners during 2 of my many trips to Target. Last week they were on price cut for $2.69 and this week there is a promotion, buy 3 get 1 free. Here are the trips’ details:

Trip 1:
1 Method Antibac Kitchen cleaner $2.69
1 Method Orla Kiely edition pear hand soap $2.69

Coupons used:
2 $1 Method manufacturer’s coupon found on 8/15 ss insert
2 $1 Method Target coupon

Total paid: $1.38 + tax

Note: I don’t care for the orange zest scent of the antibac kitchen cleaner. I imagined a sweet, citrus scent but it’s more like a fusion between a public restroom and a hint of citrus.

Trip 2:
1 Method Antibac bathroom cleaner in spearmint $2.99
1 Method Orla Kiely edition pear all purpose cleaner $2.99
2 Method all purpose cleaner in cucumber and pomegranate $2.99 each

Coupons used:
3 $1 Method manufacturer’s coupon found on 8/15 ss insert
3 $1 Method Target coupon

Total paid: $2.97 + tax

Note: I’ve tried the bathroom and pear all-purpose cleaners and they smell great. They smell of sweet pears and mint, spot on. Since the promotion is buy 3 get 1 free, some couponers would have used coupons towards the free item. I would have done that at CVS because it’s allowed according to their policy but wasn’t sure about Target. Anyway, $2.97 for 4 awesome cleaners is a great deal. It’s definitely my stock up price.


Here is my Target couponing trip today.

(2)      glade fragrance mist starter kit $2.99 each
(1)      method wood for good cleaner $5.99
(1)      method all purpose spray in clementine $2.69
(1)      method orla kiely hand soap $2.69

(3)     $1 method cleaner ip* target coupon
(1)     $5 glade oil dffuser ip* coupons.com (no longer available)
total: $14

I paid $9.34 out of pocket. There is also a Method coupon in Smartsource 08.12 insert but I haven’t had the chance to get the insert for the last couple of weeks. The all purpose cleaner and the hand soap would have been just $0.69 each! Still, this was a great trip. I needed to replenish my cleaners.
