Holiday Greeting Card Sale at Rite Aid: Buy one get 2 more boxes free!!

If you’re a Rite Aid Wellness Cardholder and in the market for reasonably priced holiday greeting cards then hurry down to your local Rite Aid quickly!  The holiday cards shown in this posting are all part of a sale that will delight a bargain shopper.

Wellness Cardholders are eligible to two free boxes of holiday greeting cards when they buy one at Rite Aid.  The two free boxes must be of equal or lesser value than the one being purchased.

The range of cards available is priced as low as $6.99 for a box of 14 cards and as high as $19.99 for a box of cards that are larger in size and include foil lined envelopes.  The variety of greetings and graphics ensure that almost everyone will find a selection they like.

My selection included two boxes of cards with pretty illustrations that are made even more attractive by the glitter used on them.  I also got a box of cards with a photo of a very pretty Christmas wreath.  I had to include the receipt from my purchase to prove to you this sale is for real.

This is a wonderful opportunity to buy extra cards to have on hand when giving a cash gift to a service person or to send to friends or relatives you’d like to reconnect with.  There’s no reason to skimp on sending cards this year when the opportunity to get an extra supply is as easy as purchasing and just paying for one box!

I purchased my cards at the Rite Aid located at 6900 Fourth Avenue near 69th Street in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY.  You can reach this Rite Aid via the R train to 69th Street/4th Avenue.  Their phone number is 718-748-8184.

Note: All cards shown here were created by Pinecone Design Ltd. of Toronto, Canada. They are distributed and sold through Rite Aid.


Paper Products for under $1.00 each–now that’s a bargain!

H.M.Y. Discount Inc.
6926 4th Avenue
Bay Ridge
Brooklyn, NY 11209

Nearest transportation: RR train to 69th Street/4th Avenue station.

Once I became self-employed and started working out of my living space I noticed how much more I used of everything around me. It became necessary to keep it clean more often and to have more products on hand for the kitchen and bathroom.

H.M.Y. Discount is now my go-to store for paper products. They are one of the few stores I know that have paper products for under $1.00.

During a recent trip I was able to restock my home office/living space with the items shown here. Many 99 cents stores are starting to push the price of paper products upwards in small increments. At D.M.Y. I found the following for under or at $1.00:

Daisy Napkins…………. .99 cents a pack
Plenty Paper Towels……. 1.00 a roll
Daisy Bathroom Tissue….. .59 cents a roll
Elegant 2-Ply Facial Tissue.. .99 cents a box

The paper products are displayed on a rack by the entrance to the store. Inside you will find a very neat and orderly layout with a good variety of stationery and housewares. There are even very pretty rhinestone and crystal rings, bracelets and earrings on the counter near the cash register.

A small increase of 10-20 cents per paper product such as the ones I purchased will quickly add up when you buy them on a regular basis. To those who do not shop this carefully it seems like extra work to go to one store for a certain type of product. But in the long run it pays off.

I always take the amount of money I’ve saved and put it into a large 10-12 oz glass jar. Over a period of time the coins will add up. It’s not unusual to have $50-60 worth of coins once you’ve filled up the jar up to the top. With this extra money I’m able to shop for holiday cards and have enough left to pay the postage.

Does your Barbie doll need a wine rack for the holidays?

I’ve posted previously about what great 1:6 scale props refrigerator magnets can sometimes be.  I haven’t had much time to delight in my dolls and creating dioramas the past 4 months due to having to move into a new apartment.

Now that I’m settling in and getting to know the new neighborhood in Bay Ridge I’ve done a lot of 99 cents store shopping.  There’s lots to report and photos are being worked on.

In the midst of all this activity my two Repro Barbies are finally unpacked and looking for the ideal place to pose in the new apartment.  I’m considering a home for the holidays scene and selecting what to include.

When I saw the refrigerator magnets made by Jin Bin I had part of the scene come to mind.  Good food and drink are always part of the Christmas celebrations I remember so why not do an Italian style Christmas with Barbie theme, I asked myself.

The detail  on the little bottles of wine is superb.  At 99 cents each these magnets are worth getting.  I haven’t found any Rements that come close to these and the price definitely makes these worth a walk up to Third Avenue if you’re as enthusiastic about your dolls and dioramas as I am.

These magnets are available at:

99 Cents Up & Less (Third Avenue ATrading)
7219 Third Avenue (between 72nd and 73rd Streets)
Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, N.Y.
Nearest Transportation: R Train to Bay Ridge Avenue/4th Avenue

I recommend getting to the store soon.  There were more of these magnets at the start of last week than there are now.  They make great gifts for 1:6 scale doll enthusiasts as well.
