Christmas on a Budget

This year many of you may be in the same situation with struggling to make ends meet. I don't know where we would be if I had never started couponing!

Christmas is a special time with friends and family but it is also the kids favorite time of the year for new toys and so forth. This year I am going to work on finding the best and most inexpensive ways to pull Christmas off.  Many stores will have lots of deals and so forth so lets compile our thoughts and work together. I will be posting in the next couple days, CVS 3 day Thanksgiving sale... there isnt too much as far as kids and toys go but they do have some great freebies and moneymakers too. The moneymakers will help build ECB's to purchase other things in the store. I have also been gaining Swagbucks to earn more Amazon gift cards. Now I think I am around $30.00 in my Amazon account. That is $30.00 of free stuff just from survey sites, and Swagbucks!

Lets see how great we can make this Christmas without going in debt or super stressed!

Mail Call

Wow I came home to a large stack of mail yesterday. I can't believe the mail man could fit it all in there.

Keep an eye out on your mail because the VocalPoint Barilla Coupons came in...including One Free Box of Barilla Plus, plus 5 Buy one Get one coupons!  I also got 3 or 4 magazines and a Kohl's $10 gift card on any if a $10/20 would come out quickly that would be a big score!

What did you get in your mail this week?

Back In Action

Ikes...can't believe I havent been posting in a couple weeks. I hope all of you have still been finding the deals. We have had a lot of stuff going on recently and I have not been able to sit at the computer in a while. Im going to try and get caught up this weekend and get some deals posted. 

I still cant believe the holidays are right around the corner.  This years goal of course is to find the best deals around town and to stay in a low and reasonable budget. Let's see how well we can all do and please help share your stories.  A big thing to help in your hoping might be SwagBucks. If you look on the lower right of the main page you will find Swagbucks. I use this toolbar daily and gain points. Then I order $5 cards for 450 points. So far I think I have gotten $25 in my Amazon account. Mostly by Swagbucks but also with surveys. Lets see how much more I can gain to help with the Christmas Shopping.

Does anyone else have any great ideas?

Target: Glade Candle Gift Card Deal is back?

I saw on another site that Target is doing their Glade Gift Card deal thru December. I will be checking this out this week because I stocked up big time last year. The Holiday scents will be the ones to get the gift card. When you buy 5 candles you get a $5.00 gift card. Continue to roll gift cards and coupons to keep stocking up. Great gifts for teachers, friends, family, stocking stuffers or keepers for yourself!

Good luck and let me know if you see this advertised as well!

Kohl's Coupon on Todays Paper!

I was heading to work and saw another $10.00 off Kohls coupon on todays St. Pete Times! Im not sure if it is on Tampa Tribune as well but I will be checking on my lunch hour. Most likely this is a 10 off 20 but sometimes they have 10 off 10! I will let you know!

****Update: This is a $10 off a $20.00 purhcase that starts tomorrow Wed. Oct. 20th.  Remember Kohl's will take multiple coupons on a purchase. For instance you can use this paper coupon plus a % off coupon if available. Just cant be two of the same coupon! Good luck, this evening all paper boxes in my area were empty!

Sad News

Well I wanted to send a little note about the sad news this week. Kristin at Couponing to Disney found out that she had lost her baby. The did the procedure and he was born yesterday sleeping. She put it in the best words for being in a very sad place right now. If you would like to read the post you can see it HERE.

I do not know Kristin personally but have read her blog for a while now, have learned so much and have even won a contest or two there. She coupons and saves away to take her family to Disney every year and she is a big Inspiration!

If you have a chance, stop over at her blog, post a comment or just look around.

Have a great day and may all of you have a safe and blessed one!

I had 1.00 off coupons so I was able to get it for .99 each and then had a coupon for Buy 1 Febreeze Candle and get a Febreeze Set n Refresh for free! Score!

Scoring these babies for .25 each(not including ecb deals I was doing and using the coupon). All in all I lost one ecb and spent 1.44 on tax and saved almost $90.00! Woohoo! So make sure to scavenger those shelves!

Where in the world....

Okay, so it has been like weeks since I posted anything... I know, I am so sorry.

I went up north for my sister's bridal shower and it was wonderful!  She got so many waffle makers, crock-pots, and love duplicates!

We MOVED!  Wait, did I ever say we were moving? Nope, we had an opportunity to move to a nicer neighborhood and have the Girl Scout leader right across the street. Cul-de-sac road, tons of kids and the girls love it!  The can ride their bikes etc..without any cars zooming by them!

And of course, there is probably more blah, blah, blah stuff that has happened as well....but let's skip all that stuff!

I am back rolling along deals this week at Publix and CVS with very minimal amounts OOP! My mother in law has gotten CVS down pat and needs help with Publix I am going to help everyone in getting that going.  I will let you know what deals I have done at both stores and so forth!

Please stay tuned, working full time, still unpacking and the kids and family life keep me busy, I am going to get back into it just please be patient!
