Kari’s Semi-Annual Sale Haul

haul1Firstly, Jenna did much better than me! I was constricted to outlets, so I did not find anything rare or unique. But, I was able to restock my supplies and did not break down and buy any jars! (applause please!)

My first trip was to Bath & Body Works. I always use the Semi-Annual Sale to stock up on their foam soap and Wall Flower bulbs. Soaps were anywhere from 50% off ($3.25) to 75% off (~$1.63) for select seasonal scents. I basically grabbed one on each. My husband is a huge fan of the foam soaps…and one typically lasts us a month. So, with any luck, we have enough until Christmas!

haul2I also got 7 Wallflower bulbs in various scents. The selection was pretty depleted…most of the summer line was sold out (or only scents I did not like remained). I did grab the last Watermelon Lemonade and a Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin 2-pack! They were all 50% off, or $3 each. Not great prices…but still cheaper than the normal sale promotion (example, the 6/$24 soap sale is still $4 each).

Next up, was the Yankee Candle Outlet. All I wanted was to replenish my tart supply! So I grabbed 12 to get the 12/$10 deal! But of course my husband wanted to restock our car jar supply, so I got a few more! Lastly, I grabbed this Creme Brulee reed diffusor!

haul5So, nothing rare or “wow look what I found”, but all things I wanted to restock!

Since I was at the outlet, I saw two notable jar candle mentions. The first was Pain au Raisin. Wow is this one good! It smells like a sticky bun with a ton of gooey raisins!

haul4The other notable were these 4th of July inspired jars. The Churned Ice Cream smelled like vanilla heaven!

What have been you’re hauls????

  1. Pain Au Raisin is one out of three from the European Q2 release ‘Cafe Culture’ – it was my favorite out of the 3 – ‘cognac soaked raisins, buttery vanilla dough + cinnamon’, closely followed by ‘Tarte Tatin’ (sweet apples, spices + vanilla). ‘Cappuccino Truffle’ had not enough of the ‘roasted coffee’ and too much ‘velvety chocolate’ for my taste. But I still haven’t decided whether or not to actually buy the jars (I tried the tarts) since the ‘best’ prices I found so far is still somewhere around 23 € for each jar (reg 27.99 €). No way do we get sales like 4/$44 or 4/€50 on the US Yankee website right now…
    Great soap haul btw – I would love to try watermelon soap, too – sooo jealous 😉 B

  2. I just recently found yall’s blog and I’m loving it! I’m now a subscriber 🙂 What a great idea to do semi-annual hauls to stock up around sales! I’m going to start doing the same to try and keep my wallet happy. Have a great week!
