Steals and Deals

I was going to have a guest blogger, but since my family is so hateful... Then I thought, "Self, it's too cold for most of us to be doing anything" and then Self said "You're right. Here's an idea." What can I say? I think I have brain freeze.

I read lots of blogs, and lots of blogs tell me about all these ways to save money or have giveaways. So, I thought I would share a few then I have my own little money saving tip/link. This, I hope, will encourage you to stay in the warm just a little longer if you are in the bitter cold tundra that is known as the U.S. right now.

First, my favorite Steals and Deals blogger, DiPaolo Momma. She is having a giveaway of box chock full of all the stuff she has gotten deals on and then some. Here's a sampling: Home Interiors candle, Revlon Nail Polish Kit, handmade by her lavendar soap (and you know I'm a soap freak), shampoo, lip gloss, Benefiber drink, and so much more. She's going to keep filling the box until the end of the month, and remember these are all things she find deals on. So, run on over and enter to win the Woohoo in a box.

This next blogger rocks because she helped to fulfill my need for my very own, very cool apron. More on this later. If you love aprons(JenSue, you know I'm talking about you), then run on over to The Apron Goddesses and enter the giveaway for an apron. I believe she has one every couple of weeks or so. I just recently found this one, but I'm so glad I did!

My last giveaway blogger to mention happened to post on the ol blog or else I may never have found her. A Giveaway A Day is just that. Every day she has a new awesome giveaway. She rocks for doing it every day.

Now for my tip. Did you know you can get free samples and links to coupons through Walmart? I'm getting a free sample of Rachael Ray's new dog food. Be forewarned the free samples do go quick. You kind of have to keep checking back to see what's new. Below the samples links, you will see a What's in Store for You section. Click on these products to find coupons most of the time. Go here to see what they've got. Oh, and Betty Crocker has some awesome coupons as well. You can see them here.

Everyone who is having bitter cold temps please be careful and stay warm! And, now I'm off..

Thanks for the heads up!

My dog likes her beef "nutrish"...I get it because it has no preservatives or artificial colors, etc.

Not sure just how I found you, but glad I did ........ Loved your letter to FAT. I'm doing the same thing, vowing not to diet but to live a healthier lifestyle in all aspects of my life. Happy New Year!

I agree...the second one is even cuter IRL.
