K-Mart Double Couponing Adventure: Week of May 29th, 2016

Happy Sunday everyone!  I hope you’re enjoying your Memorial Day weekend and remembering those who have fought and died for our country.  It’s finally summer weather here so we have been enjoying highs in the 90’s (well some people enjoy it anyway LOL).  I had a nice walk in the park with some friends yesterday and will be attending a BBQ later this evening.  I was excited (no surprise there) to find out that it’s double coupon week this week!  I had been hanging onto some coupons and I’m excited to have gotten them off of my hands and to be able to show you guys some good deals.

20160529_100719-4 packs of Poise Liners were $2.99 each, had 1 $1.50 off coupon and 3 $2 off coupons.  The $1.50 coupon doubled and the other 3 coupons only doubled to equal the price of the item (because K-Mart doesn’t do overages).  Making all 4 packs FREE!

-Always Discreet Liners were $3.99, had a $2 off coupon which doubled making them FREE!

Since you can only double 5 coupons per transaction per day, I chose those coupons to double so that I could get all of those items for free.  And since you have to spend a minimum of $25, I grabbed some more things that I had coupons for so that I could get to $25.

-Kleenex was $1.99 each.  I had a 50 cents off coupon making them $1.74 each.

-Tide Pods were $5.99, had a $2 off coupon making them $3.99.

-Fancy Feast was $1.42, had a K-Mart catalina for a free one.

I also had $4.52 in points on my account that I applied to my purchase.

My total ended up being $3.89 for everything!

I also had a K-Mart catalina for spend $20, get $2 in points but I think it may have been invalid once I used my points on my purchase, because it didn’t show up on my receipt.  I don’t think that you can earn points and use points in the same transaction.

K-Mart Double Couponing allows me to stay stocked up on pantyliners without ever having to pay for them, which is awesome.

Whether you are new to couponing or are a long-time couponer, good luck until next time! Happy couponing guys and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Beautonics Advanced Hairbrush Straightener Review

I received my first product ever from Tomoson to review recently and it’s pretty awesome.

IMG_20160512_181733I had seen hairbrush straighteners advertised on TV before and thought they would be interesting to try.  Once I got my hands on one, I was glad I did.  It’s very easy to use and I have fine hair so it doesn’t take me too long to straighten my hair with it either.  I just brushed through it layer by layer until all of my hair was straightened.  It’s not only easy to use but it’s fun to use and I like the fact that I can style my hair with it also.

To use:

2016-05-22 17.30.27

-It only has 3 buttons:  On/Off, the + and the – signs (to adjust the temperature up and down).  To turn it on you hold in the On/Off button for 3 seconds (that is also how you turn it off).

-Adjust the temperature setting based on your type of hair:  thick, medium or thin.  The temperature initially shows Celsius but you can change it to say Fahrenheit just by simply holding in the + and – buttons at the same time.  It heats up pretty quickly, which is nice.

-When you brush it through your hair I recommend doing it in sections.  Also, when you run the brush through your hair, do it somewhat slowly.  If you do it too fast it won’t really have an opportunity to straighten your hair.

That’s it!

It probably took me 5 minutes or so to straighten my hair because my hair is fine and also my hair isn’t super curly (it’s wavy).  I’m grateful for having hair that’s easy to style.  I feel for the ladies who have hard to style hair.

One tip I have is that while you are straightening your hair, be sure to hold the brush so that you aren’t hitting any of the buttons.  The first time I used the brush, I accidentally hit the + button, last thing I need is to singe all my hair off by accident.  LOL

I have no complaints about this hair tool.  I love the fact that it’s got a digital screen and the tips of the brush are heat resistant so that you don’t burn your scalp or even your hands if you accidentally touch it.  My only thing is that I wish this were made in pink, but beige is a good neutral color for everyone, so I get that.

If you have any questions about this hair straightener, please don’t hesitate to comment below.  Or if you own one yourself, I’d love to hear what you think of yours.  🙂

I received this product free for testing and review purposes and all opinions are my own.

Until next time,
