Everyone these days is trying more than ever to save here and there wherever they can. It's an awesome feeling to know that you saved some of your hard earned cash on everyday items that you and your family use daily. But how do you know what a great deal is? What price is a good one for "x" item? I thought it may be helpful to jot down several items I purchase on a regular basis and at what prices I usually pay for them. Now remember this is to be used as a guide....some prices on certain items may vary from place to place. The stores I shop at may also not be in your area either.
I am a huge On Sale, coupon fanatic and clearance shopper...I very rarely pay for anything at full or regular price. There are several circumstances and situations where it is a must...but a very, very rare occurrence. My mother told me years ago "My dear everything goes on sale at one time or another". I have learned to just be patient and have fun trying to get the best deal I can on items we use! It's like a game really....a very fun one at that!!

If you have little ones I am sure you are one of those crazy mommies (like me, of course) with a camera always in hand to capture all of those cute little moments day in and day out. Perhaps you have some you would like to put together all in one place...maybe make a baby book, a vacation memoir, or even a recipe book for a friend?
Well, now is a great time to tackle a Photo Book. Shutterfly is now offering a FREE 8x8, 20 page Photo Book now through 3/10/09 by using code:PHOTOBOOKS at checkout. You only have to pay shipping & handling charges....roughly about $8.50. The books are usually around $30 mplus S&H...so this is a great deal!!
I have made several of these photo books over the past few months....and they have all turned out beautifully!!! The kiddies look through them now and again and Little Man always thinks back to when a specific photo that was taken and tells or remembers a little story about it. It's so darn cute!! These books are a great way to relive the memories for years to come!!
