Sunday Shopping

Watsons is on sale again and that means I need to stock up on some of our essentials. MB and I are on a tight budget as we have a lot of things going on. We finally found an apartment and it’s not the size of shoebox, thank God! That’s just one of our concerns right now so we are keeping a close watch on our budget. It’s fortunate that we ran out of body wash the same time Watsons is holding a sale. I saw in their Facebook page that they had one brand of body wash on sale for only Php99 at BOGO so I definitely had to have it. We went to SM as I thought they had plenty of stock there. Turns out, it’s sold out so we went back to Greenbelt. Before I continue, here’s what I got:

This is the Aqua Vera Body Wash. I cleaned the shelf on this one. I mentioned that in FB, Watsons said that this costs Php99. Today it costs Php109.75. I asked the SA why the price is higher and she said that they just raised the prices. How convenient! Anyway, it’s just a few pesos and it’s still a steal so I got them all. We won’t have to buy body wash until July with this load!

watsons wet tissue, charmee, holy seat, bitsandtreats

Wet tissues are a staple in my house so I got 3 big packs. These will last us a week.  I also got some Charmee feminine wipes and Holy Seat spray. Use this spray at home and on the go.

The mouthwash is also on BOGO and I’m really liking the Watsons floss – 3 boxes for 89 pesos. The round ones cost 79 for 3. I also like that they come in a plastic case that locks better than the Beabi box I bought a few years ago. When I empty a box, I remove the sticker and place knick knacks such as small clamps, hairpins, hair ties, etc. It’s a great way to organize plus this is great when I travel. I can just fill a box with all of my hair essentials and pop it in my bag. 

watsons mini wet wipes, watsons hand soap, bitsandtreats

I also bring wet tissue in my bag and these are the mini versions. The promo is buy 2 get 1 so I also got a bunch. I hope these will last me until the next sale. Finally, I got 2 bottles of hand wash also on BOGO. If you think I spent a lot on this purchase, think again. Just look at how much I saved:

This is the most savings I got on a Watsons shopping trip! Isn’t that amazing?

I also got this from NBS:

my journey pen set, bitsandtreats

I found this featured in Facebook as well. = )

my journey pens, bitsandtreats

I’m a writer so it’s only natural that I love collecting pens. Anyway, I have so many pens that I stopped buying them for several years. Now I find myself with only 2 pens left and when I saw this in FB, I knew I just had to have it! I probably won’t have to buy pens for several years again.
I’m really happy that I was able to update my stock pile without paying a lot!


  1. My Mom and I love it too when Watsons goes on sale like that! Everything is just so affordable that you end up hoarding. :)

  2. hoarding!!! i need to avoid watsons for a while (tight budget T_T)

    1. guilty! There's nothing new at Watsons naman so it's okay.
      = ) Your wallet is safe!
