Comparison Shopping and a bit of bragging...

First the bit of bragging:

Yes!  I'm going to go see the Dalai Lama!  And most of y'all don't know how HUGE this is.  I have issues with crowds, and going places alone.  Well, this is going to be a HUGE crowd and I'm going to be going alone.

I'm actually really excited!

And now, a bit of comparison shopping!  First, 3 things about me: 1.) I am cheap, mainly because money is tight around here.  2.) I usually buy a store brand where I can.  and 3.) I prefer Target to Wal Mart.

I'm nearly out of both my face wash and my facial moisturizer.  So I decided to take my iPhone and do some comparison shopping.  I already knew that I was going to have to buy some of my purchases at Wal Mart.  Target doesn't carry Physician's Formula (the brand of mineral make up that I like), so I decided to see how the other prices stacked up:

1.) Acne Wash  (I took pictures of them all.... but they won't post the right way!)- both 6 oz.
Target:  $4.19
Wal Mart:  $3.67

2.) Refreshing AM Cleanser (both 8 oz.)
Target: $3.14
Wal Mart: $3.47

3.) Anti-Acne Moisturizer (no sunscreen, and 4oz for both)

Target: $3.74
Wal Mart: $3.47

4.) Aveeno style Moisturizer (4oz. and SPF 15)

Target: $10.49
Wal Mart: $9.47

With 1 exception the products are cheaper at Wal Mart.  I have a week (there abouts) to decide the level of anti-acne, sunscreen and refreshment that I need so I can plan accordingly.

But seriously... shopping with a smart phone.  Genius!!
