Holiday Shopping Tip #1...

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, many of us don't have time or don't think about being extra observant when we are out shopping. Here are a couple of my safety tips so that you can shop safely and enjoy this joyous season.

* Be aware of your surroundings. Look behind you when walking out to the car. Check around your car in a busy parking lot before you get in. Look inside your car before getting in.
* Always walk out to your car with another person if you can. If you are alone try to walk next to other shoppers in the area. More things happen the farther you get out in the parking lot, so try to park close and next to a light.
* Don't be embarrassed to ask a security guard to walk you out. That's what they are getting paid for!
* Carry your cash in your front pockets. If you do carry a purse, make sure it is carried in front of you. If you do carry a purse you might consider still carrying your license and credit card in your front pocket so that if it does get stolen you still have those items on you. You could also leave your purse at home and just carry your id and credit card on you.
* Always accompany your child to the bathroom and try to find one close to the food court. Don't use a bathroom that is in a corner of a store or mall.
* Don't let your kids play in the arcade while you shop...predators are just looking for people like you and will take advantage of a child left alone! If possible, leave them at home with a friend or relative.
* Have your keys ready when you leave the store. You don't want to be searching for them in your purse when you get to your car. This would be a perfect opportunity for something to happen since you are distracted.
* Make sure you get your debit or credit card back after making your purchases!
* Listen to your gut instincts. If something just doesn't feel right, listen to yourself! Better safe than sorry!

There is a super hot coupon found in select magazines for $5 off your total purchase of $5 or more at Hallmark Gold Crown stores. The coupon doesn’t expire until 12/24/2009. I’m betting you could get a cute ornament for cheap! If you use this coupon, let us know what you picked up for cheap!

Top Black Friday Deals Post Soon...

Make sure you check back here tomorrow when I post my Top Black Friday Deals...I'll have the inside scoop from as well!

Holiday Shopping Tip #2...

Extended warranties may not be necessary for that TV or computer purchase. Here is a great article from Yahoo Finance that I found and wanted to share with you about warranties!

Unnecessary warranties
This holiday season, shoppers are expected to spend more than a billion dollars on extended warranties. Appliance and electronics retailers push shoppers to buy extended warranties or service plans because the store keeps 50 percent or more of what they charge for them. That's much more than they can make just selling the products. But extended warranties are notoriously bad deals because some repairs are already covered by the standard manufacturer's warranty that comes with the product. And our data show that products seldom break within the period the extended warranty covers -- after the standard warranty has expired and within two to three years of purchase. When electronics and appliances do break, the repairs, on average, cost about the same as an extended warranty.

Dodge it! Our decades of brand research have shown that products are reliable enough that we don't think you need extended warranties. But if you'd like the peace of mind an extended warranty can provide, you might be able to get similar coverage by charging the item on a credit card. Check your card agreement; some cards, especially gold and platinum ones, lengthen the original manufacturer's warranty by as much as one year. If you can't rely on your card's additional coverage, channel your inner Scrooge. Get the cheapest deal you can on an extended warranty by including the cost of one in your price comparison. Always try to negotiate a better deal. And don't pay more than 20 percent of an item's purchase price for any warranty.

Thanks Yahoo Finanace for this article. Go read the entire article over the 5Worst Holiday Gotchas here!

Holiday Shopping Tip #3...

Go check out the Black Friday ads early on sites like for the stores that you are most interested in or the products you want the most this Friday. Then do some comparison shopping on sites like and see if you really are getting the best deal!! That way you know if it's really worth waking up at 3 am for that computer or not...but if you are like me, you'll already be up because you are just too excited to sleep!

Free Pair of Earrings...HURRY, while supplies last!

While supplies last, you can sign up here for a free pair of earrings from Urban Original. Use promotion code "earrings" to snag your free pair.

Thanks, moneysavingmom!

Holiday Shopping Tip #4...

Have someone that is very hard to buy for? How about a magazine subscription? You can get them something very inexpensively that lasts all year long. Some of my favorite sites to get cheap magazine subscriptions are and The downfall is the magazines may take a few months to process, so a cute idea would be to buy the current month's magazine and include a note with it that they are getting a whole year for their gift!

Annie's Coupons

Go here to print a coupon for $1/1 Annie's cereal or $0.50/1 Annie's product. If your store doubles $0.50/1 coupons, you might be able to score some very inexpensive Annie's macaroni and cheese with the $0.50/1 coupon!

Thanks Moneysavingmom!

Holiday Shopping Tip #5...

If you are doing online shopping to cross those people off your list, make sure you shop through Ebates. I get so mad at myself when I forget to do this...because it's FREE money just for shopping!!

This is the only cashback site I have used because it has an easy-to-navigate website. You simply go to the ebates website before you start shopping, search for the store you want and then shop from their ebates website. You will earn between 1.0%-5.0%cash back on average. You only have to earn $5.01 in rebates in order to get a check or Paypal payment. You get a $5bonus upon sign-up, so with just one purchase, you can reach payout. They also have double cashback days throughout the year.

However, payments are only sent every three months, so you have to wait awhile to get your rebate. Go here to sign up.

Holiday Shopping Tip #6...

Plan Ahead! Planning ahead allows you to make lists, stay on budget, map out store routes and shop more efficiently. Planning ahead for me is making lists of who to buy for and possible gift ideas. On Thanksgiving Day I scour the ads and find possible gift matchups as well as coupon matchups and plan my store routes according to the best deals. What do you do to plan ahead for the Holiday Shopping Season?

Gifts that Keep Giving...My blog on

Here is the first blog I wrote for!!!

Holiday Shopping Tip #7

All those gift receipts can be a hassle! But not if you are organized! Make sure you ask the cashier for a gift receipt so that it will be easier for everyone if the item needs returned. When you get home, immediately take the gift receipt and staple it to the tag of the item or tape it to the side of the box. For the original receipts, put them in an envelope marked Christmas 09. That way they are all in one place and you always know where they are at. How many of you have put them in your purse or wallet and then they have fallen out, gone missing or gotten thrown me, I know from experience! The key is to stay organized and this little tip will keep you doing just that!

Cool Whip/Jell-O Coupon

Here is a great coupon right now with Cool Whip being very cheap for the Holiday Season. I know Jell-O is usually on sale too so you should be able to get both of these products for under $1.00 easy! Make sure you print two times!
Print here (IE) or here (FF).

Mega Swag Buck Day!

Don't forget that today is Friday which means it is Mega Swag Bucks!

Are you earning Swag Bucks today? You can get a $5 Amazon Gift Card with just 45 Swag Bucks! You can earn about 4-5 Swag Bucks a day pretty easy, but on Fridays you could earn as many as 100 at one time! Start earning your Swag Bucks!

Let them know I referred you!

Moms Best Oatmeat for .25

Head over to CVS or Walmart where Mom's Best oatmeal sells for $1, use this .75 off coupon and grab oatmeal for .25!

Plus, you can print this twice!


Walgreens Deals!

Did you see the $10 off Coupon for the 2010 Entertainment Big Coupon Book? I never usually buy this book until after 2010 starts because then they start reducing the price, but I think I will go ahead and then have a couple more months to use the coupons inside!

For other Walgreens deals, go check out

And, go check out my friend Jennifer's recent shopping Trip to Walgreens. She took one of my coupon classes and is doing a great job finding those deals and using those coupons!
