Back to School: Teen Vogue

I have always loved school supplies.  Even if I'm not in school I enjoy picking up a pack of gel pens or a notebook with a cute pattern.  I find that Target has the best school supplies and prices and they're just putting out their back to school section now, so if you want the cute notebooks go now!  I know that it's only July but August will be here before we know it.  I'm curious to check out Staples this year too. This year they collaborated with Teen Vogue to release a line of back to school supplies.   I haven't had a chance to check out the collection in stores but based off of what I have seen online and from press releases the stuff looks pretty cute!  And it's affordable too...nothing from the collection is over $10.

Savvy Saver: Dollar Store

Dollar Tree has become my go to place for a few of my beauty essentials.  No, I don't buy makeup here but there are a few things that I stock up on when I'm in the beauty aisle because they're definitely money savers.

  1. Cotton Rounds: Since I use cotton rounds twice a day (once in the morning  and once at night with my toner) and about once a week to remove my nail polish, I go through them pretty quickly.  Stores like Target or CVS charge about $3.29 or more for the exact same pack.  

2. Nail Polish Remover: The nail polish remover that they sell at the dollar store is exactly the same that they sell at drug stores.  Why spend $4 when you could spend $1?

3. Emery Boards: I really like a square nail shape so an emery board or nail file is essential in my nail care routine.  You can pick up multiple different styles of emery boards and multipacks at the dollar store, for...you guessed it, a dollar!

The bottom line is shop wise!  Saving money on these items means that I can spend more where it really matters like on a nice foundation or skincare.
