Saturday Blog Hops!

Thanks to all that follow:)

Saturday Shopping!!

Saturday is the best shopping day! With our four kids in sports, church activities, and school demands a day off to go shopping with my kids is relaxing! I know that sounds weird, but I love it! We make games out of it! I give each kid $10 and they go and see what they can get for that much, nothing over and have a show and tell! They love it! I put a few stipulations on it! It has to be something that they will use or give to someone else as a gift. No junk! I hate waste:)
Thank God for the Internet where you can shop at home in your jammies if you feel exhausted like I do today and I just want to have a "cave day" where I hunker down with my family and we do nothing but read, play games, and hang out together!

Here are some of the shopping deals for the weekend!

    I am excited about a new opportunity to meet other bloggers.

    Mall Deals for April 22-23

    My daughter and I love to shop but don't get an opportunity as often because she also loves basketball too! So my husband gets her 3 days a week as her coach. Since this is a long weekend, we get a chance to bond and shop! We like to go prepared! I study all of my emails which I have signed up for most of my favorite stores which gets you in the know for coupons and deals before everyone else. Most retail stores have this opportunity, often with a sign up bonus of percentage off items. I also check and click on printable coupons in the coupon icon. They do a great job keeping up on all of the current coupons and deals.

    Check with your local mall and see if they have any special deals. If you are from the Eau Claire, WI area, Oakwood Mall has a great website that sends you emails every weekend to tell you about the sales in every store in the mall and offer coupons. They also offer a $10 gift card during your birthday month that doesn't expire. I also got one around Valentines Day! Plus they give you a bonus for signing up! Check out this link for Oakwood Mall!

    American Eagle 20% Off and Free Shipping

    Where I am still learning with grocery coupons, I make up for in reduced retail shopping for clothes and accessories. I never pay shipping and handling for anything. Eventually, most places have a day or more of free shipping. I love American Eagle clothes for my family. I have 2 teen boys and a 12 year old girl that love it. Plus, I have pushed my husband into the 21st century and bought him a few items! Besides that I love the jeans but refuse to pay over $18 for them (even that is way more than I spend usually). I tell you all of this to show you that when there is a sale and free shipping, it helps us out as a family.

    Zoya Nail Polish

    I just discovered Zoya nail polish this year because of a promotion of Facebook! I am now a huge fan! I love the polish! It covers with one coat, there are a million colors, and always coming out with more, and very high quality. Each one has a real name. I bought Dawn just because it is my name. I also buy my friends their name polishes for their birthdays! They cost about $8 a bottle but there are always promotions and sales. The one now is a nail polish exchange. You can exchange your non-Zoya polishes for a new Zoya polish and just pay $4 for shipping and handling. You must choose at least 6 and no more than 24. Use the code EARTHZOYA at checkout. Follow the directions on at this Link. MAKE SURE THAT YOU READ THE FINE PRINT! I am horrible at mailing things so I enlisted my amazing husband to do this for me! Enjoy!

    Bath and Body Works and Why I Love it

    Love them obviously! My son has a genetic skin disorder called EHK ichthyosis. It is a very rare disorder that causes his skin to reproduce too quickly. Basically doesn't have the cell that slows down the production of his skin. So where we redo our entire skin cell structure in 13-14 days, he does in 3-4 days. Benefit to that is that he heals super quick, which is great because his skin in very fragile and tears easily. He is a tough amazing kid and God is going to do great things with him! I tell you this to say that 2 years ago, the skin cream that we use was discontinued and the only thing that we have found to keep his very dry skin hydrated is Lay it on Thick by Bath and Body Works. It smells good and works great if you have really dry skin! The thickness is not harsh and doesn't pull on your skin. Plus, the results of the hydration are immediate! I am a loyal customer and very thankful for all the sales, deals, and coupons that they provide!

    Because of this, I want to let others know of these great deals! Right now there is free shipping on orders over $25 for today only. Use FREE25 at checkout. They also have other great sales to check out like buy 3, get 2 free on signature collection items and 50% off certain products.  My favorite is that they have a future free bag, they Spring V.I.P tote 2011, $100 value for $20 with a $40 purchase that goes on sale April 26.

    I Saved $137.50 on Groceries at Target with Coupons!

    I think that I am finally getting the hang of this coupon thing! It definitely takes some time and practice! This weekend I spent $240 and saved $137.50! I got a bathing suit (totally cute) for $1(I bought 5 Special K products and used a Target coupon that gave me $5 off of a swim suit and I found a two piece on sale for $6) and Purex Crystals for free ( one target coupon for $1.00 and a manufacturer coupon for $2)! From the beginning I promised myself that I would not own a room to stockpile and that I would only buy things that I need! I now have a large collection of shampoos and toothpastes but I am sticking with the plan! A few other sites that I love are:
     I Love Free Things
    Jessica's Coupons (I check this one at least 8 times a day! She is great at keeping up on things!)
    Free Snatcher
    Coupon Cabin
    Coupon Divas
    Here are some new ideas!
    Start Sampling (I just ordered my first box of free stuff so I will let you know how that goes!)
