I just returned from a monumental Target shopping trip. It was monumental for 2 reasons: (1) I only bought what I had on my list (perhaps a first?) – all of which I had at least one coupon for, and (2) I purchased all this stuff for only $26.49.
Snapfish has a great new service that makes creating unique Valentine’s Day photo collages and gifts a snap (pun intended).
I just came across their new photo suite, which allows you to pick one of three Valentine’s Day templates and add words, letters or drawings (depending on the template) to your own photos to create a V-day masterpiece.
Are you still needing to order your Christmas cards? I haven’t even taken our family photos yet… yikes. Anyway, there are some great deals on photo cards right now if you are getting ready to order, and a few other deals on photo gifts that would be great for anyone on your list:
I had a really good response to last week’s “DIY gifts for her” post, so I thought I would continue on this week with some great gift ideas for mom. Moms tend to be easy to please; they love photos of their families and grandkids, and just about anything practical or pretty. Here are some great DIY gifts for mom that even you would love to receive!
I’ve only officially participated in Black Friday once. I hate crowds and I hate getting up early. My husband and I wanted to get a TV at Target one year and decided to brave the crowds. Of course, since we both hate crowds and waiting in line, we showed up about 10 minutes before the store opened, and weren’t there early enough to have a decent spot in line or to hear the announcement that all TVs were on the floor in the clothing section instead of electronics. As you can probably guess, we did not get ourselves a TV that year. It was further confirmation to me that I am not made for Black Friday.
Have you ever used Ebates.com? It is the easiest, no-hassle way to earn money for shopping online. I tell you this because I love it, and because I think it’s about time somebody makes it easy to get free money.
With the holiday season coming up, most people will undoubtedly be doing some online shopping, and if you do it through Ebates, you could save all kinds of money.
You’ll be happy to hear that there are no points to redeem, no forms to mail in, and no fees. I hate doing lots of work to save money, and I promise, this has no hoops to jump through. Simply go to Ebates.com and find your desired retailer (although they don’t work with everyone, they have over 1200 stores available on their site including big names like Target, Old Navy, Lowe’s, and Best Buy). When you find the site you want to shop on, it will tell you what percent back you will earn on your sale (this amount fluctuates from store to store and throughout the year). Click on your store and you will be directed to their site, and that ends your part in using Ebates. It really is that simple.
