My tiny (but awesome) Walgreens clearance haul

I'm posting this because I want it to serve as a reminder to always, always check the clearance aisle at your local Walgreens, every time you go (that goes for the clearance aisles at Target, Rite Aid and CVS too, if your stores have clearance sections). The products that are put on clearance in those special sections aren't always beauty-related, and the inventory can vary wildly from store to store, but sometimes you can strike gold:

The other day, I snagged Sinful Colors Cool Leather (one of the limited edition leather-finish polishes from the Fall 2013 Leather Luxe Collection) and Essie Mesmerized (core shade) for a whopping $2.50 TOTAL. As you know, the full retail value of these two polishes combined is $10. Score!

Don't forget to comb the clearance sections, lovelies! You never know what you might find.


  1. Wohoo! Luv that Essie color, it reminds me of Butler Please. I scored the Jergens BB body cream from that little clearance endcap @ walgreens the other day :-D

  2. I'm with you, G, I always check the clearance every time at Wags. Also, different locations have different items on clearance. I recently got small, travel size sunscreen for a quarter! Perfect to stick in the car...Love clearance sections!

  3. At my favorite Walgreens they keep all the clearance nail polish in a basket on the counter so you just have to dig through it for the deals.

  4. That is my first stop no matter what store I am in. Over the years I have scored amazing deals

    1. Same here, clearance 1st, then the promotional displays. :) btw- nice score G.!

  5. Nicely done! As a ginormous blue fan, I'm impressed. :)

  6. I recently picked up 2 full sized Essie nail polishes in Raspberry and Damsel in a Dress. I also found a small set of 2 mini Essie polishes (Wicked and Ballet Slippers) with a nail filer. All of these were 9 dollars!

  7. Dang, I thought I did good with finding Essie on clearance for $4 each at Wags!

  8. I picked up sinful colors for $.44 at kmart, cold leather and some Essie for $2 at walgreens. I love the deals.
