I had a reader ask me today for a Wii Deal and I just found this! Great timing as Wii deals don’t come around very often, so I thought this was worth mentioning.
You can choose one of the following for your free game:
•Wii Sports Resort
•Super Smash Bros. Brawl
•Endless Ocean: Blue World
If you go to shortcuts.com, you can download a coupon to your card for $1.00 off when you buy People.
Then if you go to coupons.com (67209) and print off a $1.00 off People coupon!
This high value coupon would make for a great deal with a sale. I am thinking this would be a great coupon to use at my local store that doubles $1.00 coupons!!!

So...guess how much I paid for it???? Go ahead...guess!!!!!
Just $0.10~~A DIME! And it included the cover and everything...I don't even think it had been used!!!
I scored some great finds this weekend at my town's city wide sales. I am going to try to make a video soon of the ins and outs of sales and see what we can find!!! Sounds like fun doesn't it?!?!?!
How About Joining Coupon Swap USA?
I have come up with an idea for a coupon swap that will take place around the USA!! Here is how it works.
*Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Simply let me know you want to be a part of Coupon Swap USA and then leave me your name and mailing address.
*I will put together groups of people to become a Swap Group. I am going to try to spread you out across the USA as different regions get different coupons.
*I will designate a Group Leader (let me know in the email if you absolutely don't want to be one) to start the swap. The only thing the leader will do is start the envelope on it's cross country destination and then when it comes back to him/her they will simply keep it going and print off a new mailing sheet. I will send detailed information and the mailing sheet when I have designated those leaders.
*The way it works is this. You will have a group of about 4-5 people that you will be swapping coupons with. When you get the envelope you will choose any coupons from the envelope you would like to keep. In return, you must take all the leftover coupons along with new ones you add and put them in a new envelope and address it to the next person on the list and mail it within 2 days. The quicker the better as coupons do expire!!!! You will be in charge of your own envelopes and postage.
*If you do not want to be involved after starting it, you will simple email me and I will send a new mailing sheet to the leader.
*I will be on everybody's mailing sheet so that I can grab some great coupons too! That will be my return on the deal!!! Plus, I would just love to be apart of it!!!
So, if this is something that sounds frugally fun to you, please send me an email!!!
I will try to get groups developed in the next several weeks. Please feel free to sign up anytime though, and I will just add you on the next rotation!!!
Does this sound like something you would like to do? Let me know in the comment section!!!
I was very hesitant about trying the skincare products too...just ask Garlene, but I finally did and now I will be purchasing these products for myself!
What makes Become products so much better than other brands – more expensive brands and brands that cost less?
Quite simply, your skin is the best judge. It will tell you which products it prefers; just give it a chance! We are confident that the judgement will be positive for become products. Our products are multifunctional with a holistic approach. They have been tested by real women in Australia proving their effectiveness under any conditions and up to 9 out of 10 people who buy our products once buy them again because they getting outstanding results month after month of use.
I loved the fact that all products are tested on humans for 2 years before they are marketed plus All products have a 45 day guarantee!!! This is amazing!!! You would be crazy not to give it a try!!!!
I used and reviewed 4 different products.
Rejuvenating Hand Cream- $15.00 This lotion is suppose to promote natural rejuvenation for hands and create a protective barrier and provide instant hydration. It left a nice feeling on your hands and didn't leave them greasy which was nice. It also had a nice orange scent. It is a nice lotion but it is nothing that screams "Wow" at me. The consultant did say this is a very popular product, so I am sure there are lots of people very impressed with it!
Nail Strengthener/Nail Nourisher-$32.00 for both. My nails constantly get abused with the typing, dishes, etc. that go on in my daily life. So this was the product I was most excited about trying. The Strengthener is supposed to condition and toughen the nail without making them brittle. It is a brilliant solution for those out you who want to grow out your nails after having acrylics!!! I used mine exactly as the directions stated and I actually had to cut my nails today because they were so long and not breaking!!! It does have a nice pale pink color to it too. The Nourisher protects, condition and softens the cuticles of your nails. This is a huge problem for me! I have seen improvement in my cuticles and am thrilled about this product!!!
Lip Gloss-$14.00 This lip gloss is not only pretty but it contains innovative active ingredients to promote collagen production, stimulate cell renewal, plus moisturize and protect! Although this is a nice product, I still don't know if I have seen any collagen production or cell renewal. I don't know if this is something you would see or not? Anyway, a nice product but again, not a "Wow"!
They have so many other great products and are even launching a acne line in August! You can go visit their website here if you are interested in learning more or seeing their complete line.

Frugal Friday Tips:
1. Do you ever have just a little bit of vegetables leftover after meals? Or maybe, those carrots that sounded good at the grocery store but don't sound good anymore are starting to be past their prime...well, don't throw them away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Take all your "leftover" veggies and put them in a Ziploc bag in the freezer. Keep adding to the bag when is needed and then use those veggies for a vegetable soup or in your next stew! This way you won't have to go out and buy all those veggies at "full price!"
2. Anybody here have a million papers coming home from school? My son literally has about 10 papers coming home every night! Instead of trashing those papers, I take them and recycle them by using them to print my coupons on! It doesn't matter what is on the other side when you turn in those coupons! Another idea is to cut them up into fourths and then staple a bunch of pages together to make your own little notepad for shopping lists and such!
