Life Writing's | On Being Connected

I have been watching my insights this week on my Face Book postings and there have been two that were making me shake my head at the numbers they are showing. Now I don't base my postings on what the numbers will show. The numbers have no part in what I share, and I have posted for years without noticing there even were numbers to look at. Go figure.

Bath & Body Works | Candle Day ( December 1, 2018 ) Candle Collection List

Candle Day is this Saturday, December 1st so it is time to get your list ready! 


If you are shopping in stores this year, be sure to get your coupons ready as well too.  Online purchases will most likely require a code so no additional coupon codes can apply.


Make a game plan of how many candles you are looking to get and how you will break up your purchases for coupons to get the best bang for your buck. It is important to do it now, with a clear head because once that gate goes up... impulse shopping takes over!


I know there was a mailer coupon that offered $5 off of a $20 - $10 off of a $30 - $15 off of a $40 purchase and there is a 20% off email coupon that expires today, November 30th.  I still have survey coupons remaining so I could use those too if need be.

Please Note: the thing about the email coupon is this -  the customer service line will confirm that there is a 3 day grace period to allow you to use the coupon for Candle Day. And many stores will want those Candle Day dollars and let you use it.  

But know there are those stores that reserve the right to NOT take it...and they won't.  I know my stores refuse to take a coupon, any coupons, past the expiration date.  Looking for a bigger bottom line to meet their sales goals?  I don't know the reasoning behind it.  

I shop when I can get there and if the coupon is expired, then I spend much less.
