Fun Frugal Finds – After Holiday Bargains and Deals

Frugal Finds and Hot DealsCan you believe it’s the end of January already? Wow. The new year is off to a fast start! How many of you went out shopping after the holiday to snag up some bargains and deals? I went out twice and picked up several goodies each time! Here are some of the bargains that I recently picked up.

We needed a few new blankets here in our home so I found a great deal on those super-soft, plush blankets. I picked up a queen-size blanket for our master bedroom that was normally priced $49.99 for only $10.00. I picked up a full-size plush blanket for one of our guest bedrooms which was normally priced at $43.99 for only $8.00. Gotta love deals on bed linens!

6 foot tall inflatable Santa Claus

Two weeks ago when I was out shopping I found this 6 foot tall inflatable Santa Claus for our front yard and just had to have him! He was normally priced at $89.99 and was marked down to $29.99 on clearance. I used a 10% off coupon and got an additional $3.00 off, bring it down to $26.99. He’s huge and my grandchildren love it!!! Fun stuff!

I’ve been eyeing a new pasta cooking pot and didn’t want to spend $50 or more on one, so I held off, until now. I found a stainless steel pasta pot with removable drainer insert that was regular priced at $49.99 and got it on clearance for $11.00.

30 Microfiber Blue Cleaning Cloths

Finally, you all know that I enjoy cleaning! Yes, I’m a neat & clean freak. I needed some new microfiber cleaning cloths and found an excellent deal on them!!! I got a pack of 30 blue striped microfiber cleaning cloths for ONLY $10.00. Wow! They were regularly priced at $34.99. Yes, there are 30 of them in the pack and they’re a really nice quality. I gave 5 of them to my daughter, 5 to my mom and I kept the 15 other ones for myself. What a deal.

So ladies, have you been out shopping lately? Have you found any bargains or deals? If so, what did you get? Tell me about it!

    Wow, those are some great deals…especially on the Santa. I shop after Christmas every year but didn’t much this year. I didn’t find near as much as I usually do. I did get some wrapping paper super cheap to use for next year.

  3. You got a lot of great deals. I’m looking forward to end of the winter season’s clearance. Warm clothes and boots etc

  4. I am finding that the end of January is a good time to find some deals on toys. My grandkids really like Lego kits and I was able to find some that were discontinued and on sale with an additional 60% off. Always fun to get some good bargains.

  6. Wow! You found some great deals! I always buy holiday decorations at the end of the season too. Also, I wish I was a neat freak and enjoyed cleaning, especially with 2 young children who love to make messes. 🙂
