October Real Simple



Another awesome issue!  I may write to them this month.  That's two months in a row! 

Great articles:
The Fashion Guide features some nice wardrobe pieces and outfits
The Beauty Guide has an article about skin aging and how to prevent that aging.  Apparently only a small percentage of aging has a genetic component.  The rest is your environment.  Can you say stress?

$5 off $25 Merona Target purchase
$2 off Maybelline New Color Sensational Pearls.  Maybelline is 40% off at Rite Aid this week!
20% off Bed Bath and Beyond single item purchase
$1 off any V8 soup
$1 off Mrs. T's Pierogies
$2 off Target coupon for Healthy Choice frozen meals.  Double it up with a manufacturer's coupon!

There are also a ton of on-line coupon codes to ninewest.com, 20% off beauty and skincare products at CVS.com, 15% offHarryandDavid.com, 25% off Hallmark.com and many more...

Recipes:
They have a 4 week dinner plan and the shopping list which is always a plus.  Most of the recipes are ones that I would cook this month!  Yay!
A ton of delicious sandwich ideas
risotto
microwave lasagna??? 
Oh and my favorite, 10 ideas for Halloween candy.  York Miniature Peppermint Patties brownies, candy corn and pretzel bark, Twix cheesecake pie...  mmm...
