2.28.15 - Target - Free Baby Registry Pack (Wedding pack available too!)

Here’s a quick baby freebie you can score without much effort. Target offers a free baby registry gift pack to everyone who creates a baby registry with them. You can do this online or in store and once you’ve added even just a few items to your registry, just show an associate at the guest services desk a print out or screenshot on your phone and they will gift you with a pack filled with goodies like the one I received below...

Getting married? Target also has a gift pack for you as well!

2.26.15 - Shop Your Way + My Deals

Ok, so I’ve been a member of Shop Your Way for a long while but have never much taken advantage of the benefits of the program...until now! 

What is Shop Your Way (SYW) you ask…well, it’s a FREE reward program of sorts for Sears, Kmart, and other affiliated brands under that umbrella where you earn points on every purchase that can be redeemed on future purchases much like a coupon but the greatest thing about SYW is that they often hand out “surprise points” (READ: FREE MONEY) to their members. For example, $5 off in points on a $5 clothing purchase, $7 off in points on ANY purchase, $10 off in points on a $30 purchase, etc., and although I’ve been aware that you could essentially get something for free with a surprise points deal like $5 off in points on ANY purchase, my thought was always "there really isn’t anything less than $5 that I would want to take advantage of" so I've let a lot of surprise points slip away but guess what I’ve recently discovered…baby items often are! And with that realization, my new obsession is born lol
Here are the items I was able to score this month by using surprise points and some pocket change!

These twelve items are valued at $126.91 according to their respective retailers but with sales, some promo codes I found on RetailMeNot, and a bunch of random surprise points, I paid $3.95 for all of the above and remembered to use Shop At Home to get a total of $2.26 cash back, which means I paid just $1.69 for everything you see; a savings of $125.22 or nearly 99%...insane right!?

If that doesn’t inspire you to join, I don’t know what will. So what are you waiting for!? Go enroll in Shop Your Way now! 

Oh and if you haven't signed up for Shop At Home for your online purchases, you are missing out! And remember to always check RetailMeNot for extra promo codes before you buy!

Happy Frugal Shopping!

2.23.15 - Victoria's Secret Mailer: Freebie

To all my Victoria's Secret lovers currently on their mailing list, keep your eyes peeled for this mailer which includes a sexy little freebie (no purchase necessary), it also includes a free getaway bag with a $75 purchase, and $10 off a regular priced bra.

2.23.15 - Free Krispy Kreme Doughnut Tomorrow 2/24

Join the Fun on Facebook

In celebration of Krispy Kreme opening their 1000th shop they are giving away free original glazed doughnuts to everyone who stops by any of their participating shops on 2/24/15.

So if you are lucky enough to have one nearby then stop by tomorrow and snag yourself a free original glazed doughnut.

This will be a deliciously easy task for me as I have to drive by a shop every day on my way to and from work…you could imagine the amount of will power it takes me to not stop by every day! Lol…ENJOY!

2.23.15 - I'm Backkkkk!

OMG, I can’t believe I’ve neglected y’all and gone a whole year without blogging! AGAIN! IDK how my favorite bloggers keep up with these things lol life just gets in the way for me I suppose but just know, I’ll always come back to you! I must admit I haven’t done many frugal activities in the last year other than couponing…sorta lol I truly am ashamed of myself but enough of the self-loathing…I have another exciting announcement, last time it was I’m getting married…well, you guessed it, this time...we’re pregnant!!!! 


...and with the pending arrival of another mouth to feed and clothe, getting back into my frugal lifestyle full swing was one of my first thoughts. So if you see a slew of baby deals this year and are annoyed by them then I apologize in advance…SIKE! Lol *sings* “it’s my blog and I can post what I want to” ;) so without further ado…let the good times rolls and thank you for tuning in!

Happy (Belated) New Year!
