Old Navy Online 20% off

Old Navy offers 20% off your order when you enter code ONSAVE20 at checkout. Shipping starts at $7. Good through 12/15

The Importance of Searching for Coupon Codes

I know I have posted this many times, but with everyone doing a lot of shopping I need to say it again.

Do not order anything from any site (except Amazon) before you do a google search (or whatever search engine you use) for coupon codes for that store.

I was just ordering something online. I googled "Store name coupon codes" and found one that gave me free shipping on my order so I saved $6.50.

Lots of time you can find 15% or 20% off codes or free shipping. It takes 30 seconds to do but can really add up on savings.

That is my PSA for the day.

Magic Pants $13 online at Target

Magic- yes- I said Magic. I know a bunch of ladies who swear by these pants. Say they are the most comfortable thing to wear ever. Lots of ladies wear them to sleep in, around the house and they swear they even wear them out in the real world and no-one knows they are in pajama pants. I have been watching them for weeks waiting to find a good deal and it is here.

Target has their Gilligan & O'Malley Modal Sleep Pants on sale for $12.99. Free shipping on orders over $50. Target stores do take in store returns so if they don't work for you- you can just take them back in store.

Sam's Club for Holiday Photo cards

For those of you who have a Sam's Club membership, photo cards there are a great deal. I ordered ours last night online and paid 23 cents a card and I don't have to pay for shipping as I sent them to my local Sam's Club. Additionally, they also have 2 hour service, so if you are behind on getting your cards done (like myself) it can really help you get them out on time. I would have paid $90+ on Shutterfly to do a similar card.

I am sure Costco has the same type deal so check it out if you have a membership there.

An apology for being MIA

Last night a friend called and the first thing she said is "Are you guys okay? Is everyone sick?" and when I responded no- she called "Come on then Little Miss Moffett- where are the Bargains!!!!"

Crazy week last week with lots of family in, and pretty much three straight days of family time. Not much computer time and to be honest, the blog hasn't been bringing in enough money to justify taking time away from seeing people I only get to see once or twice a year.

Plus, the sales were everywhere- you didn't need me on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I am sure you were like me- inundated with flyers and emails- everywhere you looked.

Trying to get back on track again this week-

Hope your Black Friday was good. I actually took it easy. First time in years I was waiting in line on a cold, dark morning trying to get in somewhere. I didn't make it out until 9:45 and even then only hit two stores. But I hit paydirt at Gap- BOGO Sweaters and then 40% off all sale items. I was getting sweaters for $9 each. I now have a whole new sweater wardrobe. Plus, I got rid of 11 old sweaters to send to Good Will. We watched Hoarders last week and it's put the fear of being a hoarder in me so from now on if something comes in, it must go out.

Dec. 1st- Let the shopping begin...
