A couple days ago I found this Peppermint Mocha Coffee-Mate at Target. At my Target, it was only for sale in the smaller 16-ounce size for $1.99

I would prefer the larger 32-ounce size, since I like a little coffee with my creamer, but I was simply thrilled to see it available for sale at all, because I thought it had been discontinued for the season. I guess not according to the package label:

NEW- Now Enjoy It All Year!

Yes, I think I will. And did.

I had a delicious cup of pepperminty coffee, which was perfect on a Saturday morning.

Can of Cafe La Llave espresso

Then I went on a nice run…

And came home and took a shower and enjoyed the vanilla-meets-passion flower new Suave bodywash I also found.

If you like vanilla scents that are more “clean” than heavy, try this Suave. Vanilla meets floral and fruity fresh without being too much. I started wearing men’s deodorant, so I am not into things that are too floral lately, but am digging this bodywash.

My other favorite $1.99 purchase lately is Peanut Butter M&M’s. I love peanut M&Ms but the peanut butter are every bit as good, and possibly better than, the classic peanut variety.

I used them in Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookies with PB Cups & PB M&M’s

What was the last thing you bought for 1.99 that you’ve really enjoyed? Or anything under $5 bucks that you love?

The $1.99 Coffee-Mate and the $1.99 Suave were definitely the best uses of 1.99 all week. All year, actually.

Under $5 bucks…

  1. I got the EcoPacs of Nature’s Path Cereal for only $1.24 (with coupons) at WF and it made my life!!!!

    I’m also obsessed with Celestial Seasonings Roastarama tea. Its my new addiction!

  2. thanks Averie! So excited for this book!! and great news about the peppermint mocha! It just makes coffee feel a little more special :)

  3. Great cheap scores! I just bought a bunch of cheap, curly-hair friendly hair products at Target that were on sale under $1.99 – woot! The best part of my weekend was a wonderful, destressing run and vegan meal at Baagan.

  4. Trying hard to think of what I love that’s less than $1.99. Fresh fruit on the streets of NYC (where a banana is 50 cents) and definitely a new song iTunes. Currently obsessed with new age yoga music. Best part of the weekend: dancing my booty off last night in Atlantic City.

  5. I love those creamers. Although we do get some pretty decent flavours here in Canada, peppermint mocha isn’t one of them so when we hit up Buffalo around Christmas I stock up! :)
