Holiday Clearances!


Just a quick reminder to keep your eyes open for those after holiday clearances. I was at Target yesterday and they were already at 50% off holiday gear at my store. Each store is different on their clearance schedule, so it always varies depending on the store what discount you will get. I usually wait for 75-90% off to snag stuff as we really don't need anything and I like to get the best deals.

Also, Target usually does a twice a year clearance throughout their stores and it usually starts in January, so keep your eyes peeled!

Giveaway: $45 Gift Certificate to CSN Stores!


If you are still working on getting your holiday shopping complete, then I have a giveaway that just may help you cross a few more things off of your list.

The great people at CSN stores are offering one lucky reader a $45 gift card good at any of their 200+ online sites including their luggage stores and so many other great stores I cannot even begin to list them all! You should be able to find a gift for anyone with as many great sites as they have.

There are three ways to enter this giveaway:

1 - Take a look at their websites and leave a comment on this post about what you'd like to spend your $45 gift card on if you were to be the winner.

2 - Become a follower of my blog and leave a comment saying you did so. If you are already a follower of this blog, you can leave one comment saying you already are.

3 - Spread the word with people about this blog. Tell your friends, family, coworkers - whomever you think would be interested in the information on the blog, to come check the blog out and enter the giveaway. Ask them to leave a note in their comment that they were referred by you and I will add an additional entry for you for each person that does this!

You could potentially have more than three entries to this contest, should you refer more than one person to the blog who enters the contest - it's that easy!

Each entrant can enter the giveaway three ways. You can post one time what you'd like to spend $45 on, one time saying that you are a follower of this blog and another time for each person you've refered to this blog that enters the giveaway. Only comments left on this post will qualify as entries. Email is not a valid method of entry. You may or may not want to leave your email address on your comment. If you choose to do so, I will contact you directly if you are chosen. If an email address is not included I will post on the blog the winner's user name. You will then have 48 hours to get back to me. If I do not hear back from the winner within 48 hours, I will draw a new winner until someone claims the prize.

This giveaway will remain open until Monday, December 20th at 10 pm MST. I will then use Random.org to select a winner from the eligible entries and post the winner on Tuesday morning December 21st!

Target: Hanukkah items already being clearanced out!


I was doing some shopping at Target yesterday and noticed that they are already clearancing out the Hanukkah items. At my Target, they were already at 75% off and had tons of items still in stock, from dish towels to menorahs. Keep in mind that each Target marks down clearance items on their own schedules, but I thought this was worth passing along so you can keep your eyes open.

Now is a great time to shop ahead for items for next year and save a ton of money!

Walgreens Tissue Paper and Wrapping Paper Deals!


This week at Walgreens there is a Hallmark register reward deal going on where you buy 2 items, get $2 RR or buy 5 items and get a $5 RR. There are a couple of really good deals that you can get with this RR promotion.

UPDATE: I did the tissue paper deal last night and it worked fine but when I did it this morning it didn't work - no register reward printed for buying 5 items. They must have pulled the tissue paper as a participating item, so don't head out to do the tissue paper deal. The wrapping paper should still work though!

Hallmark 20 count Tissue paper is on sale 3/$1 with in-ad coupon.
You could buy 6 packs = $2 and get a $5 RR back - essentially making $3 after getting your RR and getting 6 packs of tissue paper!

Hallmark Wrapping Paper is also on sale buy one, get one free.
You could buy 2 rolls = $1.99 and get $2 RR back.
Or you could buy 2 rolls of wrapping paper and 3 packs of tissue paper = $2.99 and get back a $5 RR - like making $2 after RR and getting 2 rolls of wrapping paper and 3 packs of tissue paper.

Seems like some pretty good deals to me!

Homemade Laundry Detergent Update


If you've been reading this blog for awhile, then you may remember my posts about homemade cleaners and homemade laundry detergent back in March. I had been making and using homemade household cleaners for awhile, but the laundry detergent I made was the first batch.

I've been using that same batch of laundry detergent since March and finally had to make a new batch this week! I've really liked how well this recipe has worked in our HE front loading washing machine. I still need to use the occasional spray of Shout and some Oxi-Clean here and there, but I completely expected to have to with two little ones making messes on their clothes. Also, this detergent has caused zero skin issues on my little ones that both have very sensitive skin. The only downside is that it doesn't have very much smell to it, meaning your clothes don't smell dirty, but don't smell the "clean" smell we are all used to with our scented detergents.

I was surprised to see how long the batch of detergent lasted our family. I do on average 6 loads of laundry per week, so to get almost 9 months from one batch of detergent was much longer than I expected this to last us!

One batch of detergent fills 2 and 3/4 Costco bottles of detergent (the bottle pitctured in the original post with the step by step instructions) and I use less than 1/2 cup per load.

I just wanted to remind you that there are ways to save on your everyday necessities.

Have you made your own laundry detergent? If so, what did you think of it?

6 FREE Snickers Nutcracker Singles at Walgreens!

In the Red Plum insert today, we received a $2/3 Mars Holiday product coupon and it says it is good on many items including Snickers Nutcracker singles. Walgreens has these on sale this week $3/1, so if your Walgreens carries these then go and buy 6 of them for $2 and give them the $2/3 coupon and you should snag 6 for FREE!

Some stores may choose to adjust the coupon down instead of allowing overage for you to get 6 for free, which would make it where you can get 3 for FREE if they adjust the coupon down to $1.

If you have more than one coupon then you can really score some candy deals! These would make great stocking stuffers or additions to gift baskets. I think I can already feel me getting heavier just thinking about all of these free Snickers - they are one of my all time favorite candies!!

(Thanks for the heads up, Hip2Save!)
