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 couponcabin.com 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!
