Neutrogena Body Moisturizer

The number of lotions and body creams in the market is enormous and it is hard to know which one is good or not. I have been using Nivea lotions for years already since I moved in Korea but recently I have been reading good reviews about Neutrogena and Cetaphil Products, I would like to try any of of the two but I have found out that they are a bit expensive for my budget.

With this, I decided to look online because most items are cheaper in Gmarket then buying them in local stores. Neutrogena body moisturizer was on sale from one seller so I ordered immediately using the coupons I found under member’s benefits. It was a good deal, I can only buy one Neutrogena moisturizer in the local supermarket at this price but online it was for 2 items.

Mise en Scene Shampoo and Conditioner on Sale

There are lots of things a smart shopper can do to save money at everything. I love frugal shopping and I consider myself as frugal shopper because I love buying things when they are on sale. The other day in the supermarket while pushing my cart I stumble to a sale bin of Mise en Scene Shampoo and Conditioner.

It was a huge sale from ₩11,800 to ₩3,800 thinking how much I can save buying this items, I bought three pairs of shampoo and conditioner. I have first used these brand when my husband bring home the gift he receives from his employer when it is Chuseok in Korea. It was pleasuring experience because my hair feel smooth and silky.

Buying Strawberries from the Shopping Street

When I report my new passport in Suwon Immigration I also went to postal office in Icheon downtown to mail our travel documents to the travel agency in Busan. After mailing our documents I go home and passed by in the shopping street and decided to went inside the Naughty Cat shop to buy some key chains, I am planning to included them when I  mail post cards to my friends.


Aside from buying key chains I also bought few earrings so I have new accessories to blog.  When I went out the shop I look for the couple that I saw outside selling strawberries and persimmons I thought they were gone when I can’t find them to where I saw them but actually they just moved. So I went near them and buy strawberries, I handed 5,000 won and took one container but the man gave me another container he is saying two for ocheon won. As I already forgot how much is 5, 000 won in Hangul I just said I only want one believing ocheon won is 10, 000 won.

The strawberries are sweet that I don’t need to keep them in fridge with water and sugar but as I cannot eat them all at once though I’d like too I keep them in the fridge, what is left is almost one container.
