Here are a few things to get you ready:
Erin, of $5 Dollar Dinners fame (she’s been in THE VIEW . . . and I know her!), has just today released an e-book! It’s a great resource for creating fancy holiday menus on a budget, and also includes great tips for things like dealing with leftovers and working with a single oven!
Through Thanksgiving, you can use the coupon code THANKS to get a Holiday Entertaining Guide, free printable holiday planners and free 10 Holiday Treats for just $1.99. That’s 50% off! Click here to purchase yours!
Also, have you signed up for Swagbucks yet? Here’s my explanation of how it works. It’s a good overall explanation, but when I wrote it, I didn’t understand how some people maximize their Swagbucks. A few months ago, I wore my Swagbucks t-shirt when I picked up something at church. The secretary saw it and got sooo excited. She is crazy for Swagbucks, and does every last thing you can do to earn them. She plays the games, takes the surveys, and earns like crazy. Seriously, she has traded in her Swagbucks for TONS of Amazon gift cards. I still haven’t tried all of the things she does, but I earn quite a bit just by using it as my search engine.
And I must say, it is soooo nice to be able to shop on Amazon for Christmas gifts and pay with the giftcards I got from Swagbucks! Go here to sign up through my referral link!
Even just one five-dollar Amazon giftcard could score you some laundry detergent today. (Not sure how long the deal will last!) Tide with Bleach Alternative Clean Breeze Scent with Actilift, 50-Ounce is currently on sale for 5.99, with a 2.00 coupon that you clip right there on the page. AND it’s free shipping. It’s not the best deal ever seen on laundry detergent, but it’s a good one, and you don’t have to do the subscribe and save (like usual) for free shipping, it’s just free shipping! (I saw this on Money Saving Mom.)
What? Affiliate links? Oh yes . . . this post is just full-to-the-brim with them.
