Coupons tomorrow...

Looks like we are only scheduled to get one P&G insert in the paper tomorrow! It's almost like a week off without coupons. Hopefully we'll see a bunch again next week.

Walgreens: FREE 8 x 10" Photo Collage - Today Only!

Through today you can score a FREE 8 x 10" photo collage at Walgreens.

Go here to sign into your account to create yours. Use code THANKSGIVING at checkout to get this free. Choose in-store pick up to save on shipping charges too. You don't have to pick this up today, you just have to place your order today to get this deal!

Shopping Ahead - Now is the time!

I know I've posted about shopping ahead previously, but wanted to put a quick reminder out to everyone that now is a great time to get that gift stash stocked up.

With all of the great deals that come around during the holidays, there is no better time to purchase some gifts that you know people will love and set aside for birthdays or other celebrations you may have throughout the year. I am still using some of the gifts I purchased last year during the holiday season for the millions of birthday parties we attend.

I try to buy things that aren't super trendy as you never know when they won't be so cool anymore. Books, classic toys and other not so trendy things make great additions to your gift stash.

I also love to give memberships to fun places instead of more stuff to the kids in our lives. Watch the daily deal sites to snag some great deals on memberships for the families and kids in your life!

Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas Movie - $5.50!

Walmart currently has the Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas DVD for only $5.50, down from $19.98.

Go here to get this great deal. If you choose site-to-store shipping, then shipping is FREE or you can have it shipped to your home for only $1.97!

What a fun little stocking stuffer or present for the monkey lover in your life!

Are you ready for all of the online shopping?

The holiday season usually brings spending money on gifts for the important people in your life. If you are like me and like to shop online to avoid the crazy shopping malls and people out and about, then you need to make sure you are ready for all of the great deals headed our way.

The first step is to sign up for the cash back sites that give you money back on your online purchases. Some of my favorites are Shop at Home, Cashbaq and Ebates. Click on any of the links to get signed up for your FREE account. These sites are completely legitimate and FREE! You just sign into your account before you start shopping and then search the store you are looking for on their site. Once you find it, you click a link that sends you to the store you are looking for and then shop as usual. You will receive cash back to you once you hit a minimum required cash out amount and you usually can get a check or a deposit into your Paypal account. This is such a great way to save even a little bit more money while doing your shopping!

Another great resource for shopping online is Amazon. They are currently offering a program called Amazon Mom, where if you have kids or care for kids you can sign up to get 2 months of FREE Amazon Prime shipping. You don't have to be a Mom to take part in this program. That means you don't have to get to a minimum order amount to get FREE shipping and it ships 2-day shipping to your door. I'd say I do 75% of my holiday shopping through Amazon and this great program makes it that much better. I love shopping in my PJs and getting the gifts delivered to my door step 2 days later.

See this previous post about Amazon Mom for further details on this great program.

What deals are you on the lookout for?

I am curious as to what deals my readers are trying to find this holiday season. Feel free to take a second and leave a comment on this post as to what you are trying to find. I'll do my best to help you out by posting deals that you are looking for!

You can be specific about items or general. For example, you can let me know you are trying to find the best deal on a Leapster 2 for your little ones, or as generic as a new TV for the hubby!

Amazon - The Blind Side DVD only $3.99!

Woo hoo - Amazon always has some amazing deals this time of year, but you have to jump fast as the prices fluctuate frquently.

Go here, to snag a DVD copy of the awesome movie The Blind Side. If you have a prime membership or Amazon Mom Membership that I previously posted about, then this ships FREE and you will get it in 2 days!

If you prefer Blu-Ray, you can get the Blu-Ray version of this movie for $10 here.

$25 for $50 at Nordstrom Rack

The Groupon deal of the day is a $50 voucher good at Nordstrom Rack for only $25. This woul be a great way to get yourself some new stuff or start buying holiday presents for the people on your list at a grat discount. Nordstrom Rack carries lots of great stuff at discounted prices compared to Nordstrom.

Go here to sign into your account or create a new one to get in on this deal!

Black Friday Shopping Anyone?

I am not a Black Friday shopper, I prefer to do most of my holiday shopping online. If you are a big Black Friday shopper, then I'd love for you to leave a comment with your best tips and ideas. I'll update this post as comments come in so that everyone can see the ideas and suggestions for shopping on Black Friday.

My biggest suggestion would be to check out the deals ahead of time and plan. You can see sneak peeks of many retailers ads here. Feel free to share any great deals you find with everyone as well in your comment!
If you do shop on Black Friday, are you one of those crazy shoppers that line up in the middle of the night to get the best deals? I'm way too tired and love to sleep way too much to ever do this, though my husband did go to Toys R Us and line up before opening on Black Friday a few years ago to get the kiddos a play kitchen.
