Shopping Haul – Real Canadian Superstore

20180219_110357

Recently I was doing my usual shopping, and decided to head on over to the beauty department of the Real Canadian Superstore. For those not in the Great North, it is a grocery store that offers a few extras along the far side wall.

I had recently fallen upon a nail youtuber’s channel, and she was hella hilarious, so I binged a bunch of her vids and got inspired.

Low and behold, I went to pick up just a few polishes for me and my daughter, and ended up with a bunch of stuff.

One of the interesting things with the Beauty section at RCSS is that because it is so small, they only have a certain amount of space for each label or type of product. As new lines come out, they have to constantly rotate out product to fit the new. Also, sometimes, due to demographics, certain products or colours aren’t a hit, so the store just offloads them on site.

This is what I happened upon. Seems like they were getting ready for putting out different Sally Hansen and LipSmackers products. Joe Fresh, the inhouse store brand, also had a few things they were swapping out. You can normally find the sales items in a bit by the front centre row. I have been to 3 locations, and they all set up the sales bins the same. It is a vertical bin, which is nice, as you are able to actually see everything nicely categorized, instead of all just thrown in a heap.

I was rather surprised at the prices, so I basically grabbed everything I thought would be of interest to my daughter, and then got extras of everything. She isn’t old enough for makeup, but I do let her do her nails and get chap-sticks, so she ended up super happy.

I took a pic of the selection of what we got, but there was multiples of some products.

So I spent $35.30CAD before tax. It might seem like a lot, for a random shop, since obviously I wasn’t planning on getting this at all. The reason why I did it was the savings, and gifting value. I have a few people I know that would love to play with a few of these things.

What was the actual savings???

5.97×4
7.99×4
6.97×18
6.97×15
3.99×3
5.99×8
13.99×3
then add and . . .

$382.96 before Tax. Which is Crazy, I never would have gotten all that at retail.

So if you live in canada, and like this sort of thing, head on down to your local Real Canadian Super Store, and stock up. You can still find some of these things at Walmart and can even order some online on their site still, but obviously not at these prices.

‘Til Tomorrow,

Helen

    1. Haha, I did, it was crazy. My daughter was so excited. They just did another big switchover of item in the hair care isle, so I look forward to shopping this week.

      I noticed that about Milani. I started looking online for info on various makeups that were not known to me back in the day, and Milani was one of the names that kept popping up with good reviews on certain products. It is definitely on my list of things to try.

      1. I have been enjoying them, probably bought my first product from them 6 months ago??? I got the eyeliner, I like it. Also now have a bunch of cute nail art stuff from the label.
