Hey guys! Welcome back!
So before we start, I just want to say thank you for Dan for getting me hooked on these blind bags because I am obsessed now! if you aren’t following Dan the Pixar Fan, click the link below to his Instagram to follow. I also included a link to his blog if you want more Pixar goodness!
If you follow me then you already know I absolutely love Cars. It is my #1 favorite animation. It holds sentimental value due to it bringing back childhood memories for me. I will buy almost anything that is Cars related. Literally almost anything which brings me to these mini diecast racers.
Mattel released in May of this year mini diecast racers and they are adorable. Normal size diecast cars are 1:55 scale while these mini cars are about 1.5″.
They call them “blind bags” but they kinda aren’t. Each character has a designated number so you actually know who is in what bag as shown below. When the first wave came out, the bag looked a lot different but you won’t find those anymore because the new wave have taken over.
Each bag comes with a checklist so you can see who you have and who you need when you go to the store!
Now I don’t have each character because I’m picky af but I did get some good ones! Each car comes with great detailing, exact replica from the movie! Some are little off on color and finish but that’s okay because they really are super adorable.
So below is the list of characters with their corresponding numbers. But don’t get me wrong, even though I knew who was in the bag I still got excited when opening them up.
Though…I have not found 16 and 17 so they are either Fabulous Hudson Hornet or ARVY.
- Lightning McQueen
- Chick Hicks
- Doc Hudson
- Cruz Ramirez
- Cal Weathers
- Murray Clutchburn
- Jackson Storm
- Natalie Certain
- Florida Ramone
- Fabulous Lightning McQueen
- Dinoco Cruz Ramirez
- River Scott
- Dr. Damage
- Tim Treadless
- Louise Nash
- Danny Swervez
You can find these cute diecast racers at Best Buy, Walgreens, Kohls, Wegmans, and Kmart. I suggest Best Buy because 1. they are priced at $1.99 while the other stores charge about $3 and 2. you are most likely to find them available here.
As of right now, I only see the first 24 but the second wave has been released so fingers crossed I can find them!

Today August 5th 2017 is 50% off EVERYTHING at Savers!
So I thought I would give you my experience shopping at savers today and show you what I got!
But first advice:
So first, expect a lot of people. I knew there would be a lot of people just didn’t expect to actually break a sweat lol. The line for the registers circled around the store and they had every single cash wrap open. Savers has a lot of stuff so go in knowing what you are looking for because that is when you will notice the best stuff for your taste. I went in thinking about vintage stuff and walked out with some good finds, some that aren’t even vintage.
Second, bring a reusable bag with you. There most likely will be no carts for you so expect to hold your stuff. A bag obviously will help with the load. Anything big you find just as an employee and they should be able to put it in the front for you or put it on hold until you are ready to check out.
And lastly, be respectful. These are secondhand stuff and Savers is the best priced thrift store out there. The employees can only do so much and they are fully there to help you. So if you have a question don’t be afraid to ask. Just be nice. I know you will run into rude people but just ignore them and focus on what you are looking for.
The closest Savers to me is the Murrieta location. Didn’t feel like driving an hour to Savers in Riverside, CA. But I have never been to any other Savers so idk what the closest Savers to you will have but it doesn’t hurt to check it out. You NEVER know what you will find.
So what did I get? Well let me show you!
First is this chair. It is grey with silver studs and brown wooden legs. The legs were wobbling which can easily be fixed by tightening the screws and there are some unnoticeable stains that can be cleaned.
Second is this sun hat. The camera kinda washed out the color but it is a light turquoise blue and in perfect condition.
I also got this Betseyville by Betsey Johnson purse in great condition. I will be using it for a Lightning McQueen Disneybound in the future.
I got these beautiful black pumps. They have some flaws but not to a point where I wouldn’t wear them. This is the 3rd pair of shoes I have bought from Savers since I first shopped there.
This was the best find for me. I am a big reader, I love to read. And I collect Beauty and the Beast books. And this book is fairly new!. I also got this Princess Diana book for my mother. She absolutely adores her and since the anniversary of her death is at the end of the month (She will have been gone for 20 years) I thought this would be perfect for my mother.
I got these Nike shorts. They are an XS which is actually too small for me, but I was waiting in line and walked by these. I am running a marathon at Disneyland in November and thought I should buy shorts so I just grabbed them. I tried them on and they fit great so that was a win.
I got this beautiful chiffon scarf with retro sunhats on it. I got it for my hair since I am trying to convert my wardrobe to a more vintage theme.
I got this light lilac cardigan. When I put it on I yipped lol. This will go great with so many outfits. I am so in love!
Last but not least, these bowls. Sorry for the darkness, tried to lighten the picture but it wouldn’t transfer so oh well! But when I saw these I had to have them. It is a set of 4 ice cream bowls of different colors; pink, green, purple, yellow…all pastel.
I barely looked in the clothing racks because it was just too hot in there for me so I just looked for staple items such as a cardigan.
I ALWAYS look in the shoe racks. Every time I have gone there, I walked out with a pair of shoes!
I didn’t really look for my boyfriend because he is super picky. They didn’t have anything good for his mom, my sister, and my grandma. So initially I just ended up looking for me.
If you want to get someone something, I suggest you take them with you. Savers only does exchanges and that is on certain items.
Overall, I am super happy with this haul! I grabbed great things and I just stumbled upon them!
My total price was about $42 and saved nearly $40!
Please if you have a Savers near you, GO TODAY! You cannot beat 50% off everything. Have great weekend and I will talk to you guys later!
