How to Look Great on a Clearance Budget

Wearing my Clearance items! Sorry, foundation was already removed for the day! 

You don't have to spend a lot to look good. There are plenty of great clearance deals out there for you to sniff out. I also heavily rely on store ads, in store coupons, manufacturers coupons, and buy one get one free or buy one get one 50% off sales. You can stack manufacturers coupons with pretty  much anything. Here is my clearance haul from today.

There were a ton of manufacturers coupons at Kmart and Walgreens
$1 off any Almay product (Kmart)
$1 off any Maybelline product (Walgreens plus buy 1 get one 50% free)
$1 off Garnier BB Cream (Walgreens, cheapest price I've seen is at Walmart)
$1 off Revlon nail polish (Kmart)

I indicated where I found these coupons, but you can use manufacturers coupons nearly anywhere. Plus they are usually okay to stack on top of clearance prices and other sales. I threw some extras in my purse as well. Manufacturers coupons are usually good for a period of a few months, if not longer.

Yours in Beauty, and Lookin' Good at Clearance Prices, 



  1. I love that you find these deals! I really want to go and get some now! I have that Almay 3 shadow thing and like the colors. You're great at finding clearance deals! :)

  2. Thanks, I actually hated the one I got. So chalky. I made it work, but had to top with other shadows. I even may just throw it away. It was the hazel trio. I was shocked because it is their new formulation and I have the two previous styles and I love them!
