Buys: Happiness in Shower Curtains

One of the things that boyfriend taught me was that the first thing you have to do when you move into a new place is a shower curtain. After personally shower-curtain-shopped with him, I learned that Walmart’s Mainstay light weight shower curtain and hooks is $3.38 tax included. Of course, the shower curtain wouldn’t be too sheer to be used (unless you enjoy being watched, that is totally up to you).

I shop hopped for a couple of hours after training today. The only thing I bought was Room Essentials’ light weight shower curtain and clear hooks.



This wasn’t exactly what I bought, because Target has a larger variety of color for these light weight shower curtains – white, clear and shell (Walmart only had one – white. Dull, I know). Even the hooks had the same variation of colors! All for $0.40 more compared to Walmart!

This significant buy made me happy.

There was finally a change in the bathroom that I shared with my parents for as long as I’ve been here – that’s 3 1/2 years. Although of much less quality shower curtain, it serves it purpose – to ensure that the water does not spill out of the tub. After all, I thought it was for the best. How much weight do you think your rod can take?

So tell me, what joy did you buy with $4 today?


Target: Mossimo Flats

My recent employment at JPMorgan Chase as a teller has made me kept an eye on flats – after all, I wasn’t going to wear heels for hours a day while keeping a smile on my face. Target has their lot of shoes on sale, and I bought my first comfortable pair of flats half-off at $9.98. They do snug to your feet, so buy 1/2 size larger than your usual size.



Even though Target has most of their items priced slightly above Walmart, it is definitely worth the drive to take a peek on their clearance items. Also, sign up for a Target RED card – they are available for debit and credit, and save 5% on all of your purchases. They may already match Walmart’s low price after the 5% discount on certain items.
