As I mentioned on Friday, I had some more shopping to do over the weekend. I have a little haul of mixed items to share. The first item is beauty related. I picked up this Eye Serum at Dollar General for $5.75. I've used this one before and it is amazing for the price. It's as good as or better than a comparable generic brand that I buy at Target for around $15.
The next item is a fun and bright purse that I purchased at Rue21 on clearance for $7. I like that it's a great teal color for summer and has lots of pockets but it's a cross body bag, which I'm not a fan of in general. Also, it's a little too big for my tiny four foot eleven frame. It will last temporarily until I find a more suitable replacement. I really just wanted something cheap to last until I have more time to really shop around for more of an investment bag. Something that will last more than a few weeks would be great right about now. I start summer break on Thursday so then I will have more time to really shop until I find something I really like.
And finally, I picked up a few basic containers at Big Lots to use as organizers in my classroom closet. I was really hoping to find some of these or these at Big Lots. The first link listed were the ones I really wanted and my Big Lots didn't have them. Sad! The second link was available but they were just too flimsy for what I need them to do. What I did find was a few clear shoe boxes for $1.00 each. And for the larger items I need to store, I bought three 18 quart sink tubs. (You can place them in your sink to wash dishes in.) They are nice and strong and were only $2.50 each. I'm not a fan of the black but I figured either I wouldn't notice once they were in the closet and full or if I did notice, black would be easy to decorate with fun duct tape like this or maybe even with scrapbook paper. Either way, they will serve the purpose for which I need them, whether they are pretty or not.
After all that shopping, we went to see Star Trek Into Darkness at the IMAX in 3D. As a nerd, I thought it was an awesome movie! I definitely want to see it again!
