Macy's Denim Event and Clearance

Macy's always runs great end of year clearance and if you pair that with their demin event you are sure to get some steals.

If you haven't heard of their denim event before, its awesome! Buy anything that is denim and you get a $10 coupon good towards your next purchase. There are some restrictions on the coupon like it can't be used on everyday value items or items that are full priced. But really it doesn't limit you too much. Especially if you want to get the most bang for your buck and pair the deals with clearance. You get the $10 on clearance buys as well as the rest of the jeans so if you can find some clearance demin you are sure to get the items cheap, free or even as money makers.

Here is my haul from last night:

Ended up with 4 pajamas, 11 pairs of paints, 10 shirts and 2 full outfits!
Retail Value of everything: $459.12
My cost: $85.14
Savings: 81.5%

Now let me tell you it took a lot of work to get this deal as you can only use one coupon per transaction which meant I had to do 12 different transactions (one transacation to get me started and then one for each of my 11 $10 off coupons)!!!

The receipts to prove it:

But the lady behind the counter was more then helpful and allowed me to do all my purchases with only suggesting one time that maybe I should come back later. I told her I was shopping without kids a extreme rarity so I wanted to get it all done now! After that she didn't say a word and just kept ringing! :)

I had never shopped this event before (and it is good throughout the whole store not just kids) but I will def. do it again next year. Free or cheap demin - sounds good to me!

The denim event is going on through Jan. 3!

Happy Shopping

Lowes Totes

I am always telling the hubby I should invest in stock of storage totes because I am always buying them to store the kid's clothes outgrown and future as well as toys.

Right now Lowes has their totes 50% off.

* Centrex Plastics Plastic 18-Gallon Rugged Tote Storage Box in Red for $5
* Centrex Plastics Plastic 50-Gallon Rugged Tote Storage Box in Blue for $9.99 

I bought 6 of the $4.25 totes as the $2.50 totes isn't getting very good reviews. I then used my 10 off 25 code from the Lowes event to get 6 for around $16!

    Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
    We were all spoiled rotten and still trying to get unburied from all the toys!

    Because I had lost my usb cable earlier in the month its been awhile since I shared any pictures.

    This was taken earlier in the month when we visited Santa.
    Notice my hand shoving MGirl into the picture.
    But hey she is smiling....

    better then last year...

    Laugh out loud! This picture never gets old to me!

    And MGirl discovered Santa came to visit and was very happy.

    And CMan well he just looked dashing as ever

    And MGirl looked pretty adorable too.. (her dress was made from Prissy Peacock - LOVE it!)

    Merry Christmas!

    Free Photo Books

    Starting 12/26 CVS is having buy one get one free Kodak photo books.

    If you head over here you can print a buy one get one free coupon for the photo books which means...

    You get both books for free!!! For those of you who aren't big couponers, it states in CVS coupon policy that you can use a buy one get one free (bogo) coupon with a bogo sale to get both items for free!!

    I am hoping we can make these online and then just pick them up in the store because I somehow doubt I can keep three children calm while making these books in the store but we shall see!

    This is a great freebie for after the holidays and I am hoping to  make CMan a family picture book and MGirl an alphabet book.

    I know if you were around here early on you have heard about Swagbucks before, but many of you are new faces so I wanted to share this information with you again.

    Swagbucks is a totally free way to easily earn money by searching the internet. All you have to do is join their site and use their site to search the internet. You can search for all the things you normally search for. Every so often (usually a few times a day) you earn points for your search. Points can then be used to "buy" a lot of different things including gift cards, prizes, etc.

    I personally always use my swagbucks to buy gift cards especially Amazon gift cards.

    So basically someone is paying you to do your normal online searches. No strings attached!

    Really it is a win win situation so head over and sign up. My goal is to earn money for next Christmas with swagbucks. I have heard of people earning thousands of dollars in swagbucks but I would be happy to just make a $100!

    Happy searching!

    They are killing me...

    Amazon is having too good of sales (okay there is no such thing you are right!).....but seriously I want to buy so many things and really the kid's just don't need it or at least they don't need it yet.

    My newest lust....

    Schwinn Roadster 12-Inch Trike (Red)

    MGirl would die for a bike....yes its not summer and she can't ride it now but it will be soon enough (or i sure hope so!). Ughhh.....Amazon please stop posting such amazing deals - my hubby and credit card will thank you!

    Where were you today?

    Some of you may be wondering what happened to me this morning......

    well lets just sum it up in one sentence:

    Giant Eagle with 3 kids for two hours!

    By the time I got home I was about dead to the world. CMan is sick and only wants to be carried which meant me toting him around in my Moby for the whole trip, MGirl wanted to touch everything and thankfully only did minimum damage at the store (although if I have to say the phrase MGirl come back please one more time today I might scream!), and the little guy I watch - well he was entertaining himself by chucking the foods I put into the cart out of the cart.

    Yes we all survived just a little worse for the wear.

    So excuse me if I try to breathe a little before I post any deals today. :)
