surprise finds!

I've noticed my exclamation point over usage has seeped into my post titles now! They're everywhere! Everywhere, I tell you! Ah!)

I took a quickity-quick trip into Ross today (a store in the same vein as Marshalls, TJ Maxx, etc.) because I knew they carried clearance Target items every once in a while. Specifically Target brand candles, etc. So as I wondered down the candle/fragrance aisle, what did I stumble upon but some lavender + lemongrass candles! In the new glass bowls! Now, these were the old "hard to burn" formula, so I sorta passed, but they were only $2.99! Then I noticed around five cut grass aroma pills (the whole set, pill and refill) for a mere $4.49! And finally I saw two cinnamon bark aroma stick sets for $4.99 each! (A perfect find for the upcoming holidays! Especially since we won't be getting aroma sticks in this year's holiday line.) Wow!

If you have a Ross near you, a trip to the store might be in order! Let me know if you happen to find anything different, or what you pick up, method style! (You can also tell me what you pick up non-method style, but then I don't want you to think I'm straight up nosey, so really, you don't have to, alright? Cool.)

Thanks for the heads up! I'll run by Ross this week! I LOVE the Cut Grass scent! Just last week I bought 5 Cut Grass pill refills for $2.50 each at Big Lots. :)

My Target is looking so sad in the method department... :( I am in denial that method is getting rid of their aircare line. But there are still some aroma pills at Target...I bought the vanilla apple pills and I really like the scent actually. Nate, my Target has a ton of lavender + lemongrass aroma pills...does yours have any left?

AND, can we talk about the new colors on method packaging...I am really sad they changed the blue color on the Lil Bowl Blue...the blue was such a nice and calming blue...now it's this brighter (dare I say "garish") blue. Why did they change?! I'm seriously trying to think of a way to get that toilet bowl cleaner out of the brighter blue bottle into the old lovely blue bottle.

Cut grass!! My ollld aroma pill just broke recently, so if I could score a new one with cut grass, I'd be so super happy.

And "my" Target still has all the aircare at regular price except no more candles. I'm so confused.

Found a Pear Grapefruit candle today. I had never seen that scent before. Went ahead and bought it. Should be a nice change.

Stopped in tonight and the only thing Method that I found was about 6 of the Vanilla Apple candles in the glass bowls. I adore this scent! I use the VA pill in my office already.

Karin, I feel you on the aircare line. I still think we're in a holding pattern to aircare doom, but who knows??? We've got most of the items in my Targets; just not the candles or aroma rings (since they're discontinued.)

And I TOTALLY get you on the lil' bowl blu! What were they thinking? It's such an ugly blue! And don't think for a moment I'm not going to do exactly what you're suggesting! I'm sure that squeeze top has to come off somehow, and I'm gonna try! Cause that blue color was so nice, and this new one is just gah! They seem to be trying their hand at putting out products in screaming colors right now (such as the electric waterflower and refresh mint hand washes, also. They used to be nice and subtle; now they're neon!) Perhaps to see if it attracts customers, who can find it on the shelves easier? But I don't think it's a good idea, personally!

Hit up Ross again last night. All of the Method Vanilla Apple candles sold. Found 3 Cut Grass pills but left them as I have like 5 refills already in that wonderful scent. :)

I was in Ross again today and I noticed that they have clearanced the Method Aroma Pills from $4.49 to $2.99. I bought what they had left - 3 Fresh Lychee.

I found the fresh cut grass at Big Lots... had it in for probably a day or two and couldn't stand the smell LOL.
