Divine Wine and Toys for Tots

Hooray, a day off! I got up at 6:30 AM to feed RJ and went back to bed and didn't get back out until about 11:30 AM. I did answer a few work emails, but other than that, I really enjoyed my free time today.

After breakfast, I went to gas up the car ($2.53/gal), Rite Aid and Korean Korner.  At Rite Aid, I picked up some holiday candy to give as gifts and another Maybelline Creamy Matte lipstick in Daringly Nude.  I had bought the shade Divine Wine last week (seen here) and loved it.  I was even brave enough today to wear it outside the house.  The formula and longevity are great, so of course, I had to buy another shade.  I went armed with $2 in Up rewards and $1 coupon.  And at Korean Korner, I picked up some Asian snacks to send to a friend for Christmas. 

I noticed that there was a Toys For Tots donation box at the gym, so I went the hunt for a good present to get. I looked at the Toys for Tots site for some ideas and came across the following information: "In the past, items purchased for these groups have included, but are not limited to: sporting equipment/bags/balls; books, backpacks, cosmetics, purses, watch/wallet gift sets, bath gift sets, board games, radio control cars/trucks, hand-held electronics, skateboards/helmets, curling irons, hair straighteners, and hair dryers." And then I remembered that I had a $10 off Best Buy coupon. I hopped onto the Best Buy website to see what awesomeness I could get to buy to donate. I found a curling wand that's very similar to the one that I bought for myself almost a year ago for $24.99. Perfect! I applied a 20% off coupon code since it was a personal care item AND my $10 discount and saved $15 and 1% Ebates cash back. Whoever ends up with this curling wand will have some fabulous hair results and I am experiencing a little bit of a high from doing good while saving money. Win-win! :)

Oh, and free in-store pick up so no need to pay for shipping.
