Cash-In Your Old or Damaged Gadgets!

Sadly, while on vacation, my husband drowned his iPhone IN the Montego Bay!

We took it to a local cell phone repair shop in hopes of being able to bring it back to life but unfortunately we had no luck, but found we were able to get cash to buy another phone after a friend of mine referred me to this site called Gazelle, where you can trade in your old, unused, or even damaged gadget(s) for cash!

So if you find yourself in a similar situation or have just upgraded your phone and don't know what to do with the old one, go ahead and get an offer from Gazelle...you might be surprised how much you can get for it!

So don't delay, click here to see how much your gadget is worth PLUS get $10 extra for anything valued at $25 or more!

My Shutterfly Deal + Coupon Codes + a GIVEAWAY

After just having a wedding and enjoying a beautiful honeymoon in Jamaica, I had hundreds of mementos and souvenirs in the form of photos and of course I wanted to do something with them aside from having the photos just stored on my computer, never to see the light of day like the thousands of other photos I've taken over recent years - I'm sure you know how that goes! Soo...

Enter Shutterfly!

I ran across Shutterfly during my wedding planning process when I discovered that they provide free wedding websites (and much more!) and when it came to photo products, I knew exactly where to turn. I was really surprised about the amount of offers out there to be had and ended up making about 5 different orders. In the end, I purchased about $375 worth of products/services and saved a whopping $325! Yes, I got all of these fully customized and personalized items for just $50 bucks!!!

Check it out:
9-5x7 prints | 1-8x10 print | 1-5x7 soft back book | 1-photo calendar | 1-2x3 magnet | 16-5x5 holiday cards | 2-metal book easels | 3-8x8 hard back books | 1-Samsung Galaxy 3 phone case

(some items not pictured)
Here are some examples of the coupon codes that I came across to score such great deals, some of which I was able to stack on top of codes I found on www.retailmenot.com and basically ended up getting everything for free and my final costs were just shipping!

The first was a Catalina from a Food Lion shopping trip where I unexpectedly received a coupon for a free calendar! I also received two offers from Kellogg's Rewards (stay tuned for a post on what exactly that is if you aren't a member) for a free 2x3 magnet and $20 towards holiday cards. Then there was the Shutterfly Naughty or Nice raffle (again on www.retailmenot.com) where I won codes for two free hard back photo books and a few $20 gift codes. Awesome right!?

So for my frist giveaway in the new year, I want to pass on a $20 gift card, good towards anything on shutterfly.com (excluding shipping and tax) PLUS a code for one free 8x8 photo book to one of you lucky readers!!! All you have to do is "like" Fun, Fab, & Frugal on Facebook and post a comment saying so. I will then randomly select a winner and announce her (or his) name right here and contact that winner to claim their prize!

Simple enough, right?! Just click HERE to enter!

And if you aren't a member of Shutterfly.com, sign up now and you will automatically receive 50 free prints in your account!


Plus, here are a few codes available right now that you can use towards your printing purchases:

XOXOCARDS - 10 Free personalized greeting cards - expires 2/2/14
CARD4U - Free 5x7 greeting card or 5x5/5x7 stationary card - expires 3/11/14
SHIP30 - Free shipping on purchases over $30 - Limited time!
UPGRADE - Free upgrade to expedited shipping on orders over $30 - Limited time!

Giveaway ends at 8PM EST 2/2/14!

New Year - New Look!

What better way to start the new year off on the right foot but with a new layout! Looks fab!!! Doesn't it!?!?! I hope you like it.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year 2014!!!

Wow! I can't believe 2013 is over already, it truly flew by...so much so I didn't even realize that I have not posted in 7 months!!! For shame! lol

2013 was truly a great year and I had so much going on with moving, my daughter starting Kindergarten *tears*, then a wedding and a honeymoon!!! *whoop whoop* - I clearly couldn't keep up but now that a new year is upon us, my sole resolution for the year is to pick back up where I left off because I am ashamed to say that not only have I not posted, I also have only been half-dedicated to couponing BUT trust that I haven't lost my ability to score good deals and freebies which I mastered in 2012 and on a side note, I could partially blame Firefox for my slackage of couponing since for some reason I could not for the life of me get any coupons from coupons.com to print!!! ugh! BUT one of the very first things I did this year was a good ol' handy dandy google search to see if anyone else had the same issue and sure enough it was my browser causing the issue. So if any of you are having an issue printing from coupons.com, try using a different browser. Google Chrome is now my new best friend and I am officially back in full force on the coupon front and now that I am, my goal this year is to master grocery couponing and be able to save at least 60% on every trip because I know it's possible!

So cheers to a new year and thank you for visiting my blog! I hope we can have some fun learning lots of couponing tips together, and do it fabulously, of course!


Throwback Thursday - Check out my New Years Post from 2013 below :-) 

Happy New Year 2013

Wow! It's been a great year! Learning to coupon has truly been the" best thing since sliced bread", as they say :) For the first time ever, I have kept my New Years Resolution for 2012 to save money and boy have I ever! Excited to see what 2013 brings!
