The Rundown: Shopping Cheat Sheet

I hate to say this, but can you believe that summer is rapidly coming to an end? It unofficially ends next weekend with Labor Day, so be sure to go out and make the most of this last weekend of August.

There are a few good deals this weekend, but the majority of stores are saving up their really great deals for next weekend. Long holiday weekends are the best for savings!

Happy shopping, everyone!



In Between In Between by Jenny B. Jones has amazing reviews on Amazon and it is currently available as a FREE Kindle download!

Synopsis: Katie Parker is about to get a new life—whether she wants one or not. With her mom in prison, and her father AWOL, Katie is sent to live with a squeaky-clean family who could have their own sitcom. She launches a full-scale plan to get sent back to the girls’ home when she finds herself in over her head…and heart. When Katie and her new “wrong crowd” get into significant trouble at school, she finds her punishment is restoring a historic theater with a crazy grandma who goes by the name of Mad Maxine. In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she’s not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she’ll continue her own family’s messed up legacy or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between.


Buy in Bulk and Save

Boxed Discount via Groupon

Have you heard of Boxed? It’s a new-ish wholesale shopping site that will ship bulk products direct to your door. The awesome thing about Boxed, aside from shipping to your door? There’s no membership fee!

If you’re interested in checking it out, be sure to pick up this $75 for $100 Boxed voucher from Goupon. I love anytime I can save money on groceries and while I’m pretty devoted to Amazon Subscribe and Save (most of those items are bulk sizes as well), I’m going to take advantage of this savings for Boxed!


3 Sales You Don’t Want to Miss

American Apparel

Things are not going well at American Apparel what with the ousting of their founder (good riddance), declining sales, stores closing, and declining stock prices. There are some rumors the store may not make it into the new year. I wouldn’t be surprised to see an aggressive Q4 full of sales… starting today!

American Apparel Flex Fleece Zip Hoodie

Through August 30, 2015 you can take 25% off all American Apparel hoodies with code “STOCKUP”. The Flex Fleece Zip Hoodie worn by the excited-looking man above is $48 normally or $36 after the discount is applied.



Swimwear probably isn’t at the top of anyone’s shopping list right now, but August is the best month to buy swimwear! Whatever’s left in-stores is marked down to rock bottom prices because the stores just want to clear their shelves.

Bon-Ton Swim Sale

Lauren Ralph Lauren Laguna Ruffle One-Piece – $35.60 // Reef Desert Bloom Underwire Swim Bra – $8.80 // Reef Desert Bloom Tie Side Hipster Bottoms – $6.80

There’s an amazing swimwear sale at Bon-Ton that runs through tomorrow, August 29, where you can save up to 80% on select styles. No coupon is necessary as all prices are marked to reflect the discount.


Lane Bryant

(Plus Size) Take an additional 40% off all clearance items at Lane Bryant with code “OHYEAHLB”. This offer is valid both online and in-stores for a limited time.

Lane Bryant Clearance Sale

Zipper Trim Floral Chiffon Top – on sale for $34.99, get it now for $20.99 // Lena Sexy Stretch Slim Pant – on sale for $49.99, get it now for $29.99

While there are tons of fantastic summer items included in the Lane Bryant clearance sale, I also spotted quite a few items that will be ideal for fall work wardrobes (and play wardrobes)!
