I'm off to Vegas tomorrow for a long weekend, so I won't be able to post again until Monday. But don't forget to enter the giveaway if you haven't already, check out Target deals for next week, and look at what will be happening at Walgreens.

Also, here are some great FREEBIES and coupons. Something to remember me by ;-)

$.75 off Juicy Juice

$2.00 off Pull-Ups Training Pants

$.75 off Cattleman's BBQ Sauce

$1/2 Oreo Mini Cakesters

My Top Five Printables of the Day!

I've got to be honest. There are a RIDIC amount of internet coupons out there. It would be impossible for me to link to all of them, but I do want to keep myself motivated to find and share awesome printables. So, I'm going to start posting my Top Five every day, just so I don't get overwhelmed. You don't want to see me crack, right?

I'm also going to be organizing an on-going list of internet printables that I will update every day with my Top Five. That way they will all be in one master list and not scattered all over the place. This is a work in progress though, so look for it some time next week.

$4 off any Pace product (thanks Common Sense with Money!)

DVD Deal at Target Just Got Sweeter!


Remember that Bolt and Lilo & Stitch deal that I posted about here? Well it just got better! I printed out my coupon just a little bit ago so I can run over to Target after work, and I noticed that if you buy both DVDs, you will receive a FREE collectible Bolt plush! All you have to do is register here and follow the instructions to get your FREE plush. Bolt is so cute that I may just keep that for myself ;-)

AND if you buy the Bolt DVD and any of the following products (Ronzoni® Smart Taste™, Ronzoni®, San Giorgio®, Creamette®, American Beauty®, Prince® or Skinner®), you can send in your receipts to get a $4 rebate by mail. Click here for more info.

So let's get this straight:
2 DVDs (each $15.99) - $31.98
- $10 Target promotion if you buy both
- $5 printable Bolt coupon
- $4 rebate from Ronzoni
= $12.98 for two DVDs and a Bolt plush



Wendy's Bid for Value, 3/25 - 4/3


I'm so excited for this giveaway to begin! Starting tomorrow and lasting through April 3rd, there will be multiple auctions each day for some sweet prizes. All you have to do is bid for them. Each click of "submit bid" constitutes a bid, there is no entering of dollar amounts. But the catch is that instead of the amount going up with each bid, the amount will go down. Once it reaches 99 cents, the person submitting that bid (or click) will win. So the most you will pay for any of the prizes is $.99. Considering what some of the prizes are, that's pretty amazing!

Click here for more info and a list of the upcoming auctions. Happy bidding/clicking!!

Online Freebies and Promotional Codes

Here is a round-up of some freebies and promotional codes =)

FREE shipping from JCPenney on orders of $49 or more with the promotional code: REFRESH. Good through April 10.

FREE shipping from American Girl on ANY order with the promotional code: EASTERSHIP. Good through April 5.

FREE print from Canon (thanks Sioux!)

My First Giveaway!


It's been almost two weeks since I started my blog. I've been having a lot of fun with it, and although I'm a lot busier now, it's fun busy. Saving money has always been an obsession of mine so it's great to be able to share it with others. For kicks and giggles, I added a blog counter four days ago, just to see if anyone else was reading besides me and my mommy friends (hi guys!). Imagine how pleasantly surprised I was today when I reached 100 unique visitors! That may seem like small potatoes, but I'm grateful for every reader I have whether it be 10 or 100.

So to show my appreciation, I thought I'd have a small giveaway, just as a way to say thanks for reading. It will end at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31st, one week from today, and the prize will be a $10 Target giftcard. You have 4 ways to enter:
(1) Leave me a comment to THIS post.
(2) Blog about this giveway with a link back to my blog, and then leave me a comment with the URL to your post.
(3) Follow my blog, or subscribe to my blog by email or RSS feed, and leave me a comment letting me know.
(4) Email a friend about my blog and/or giveaway, CC me at frugalityisfun (at) gmail (dot) com, and then leave me a comment!

Thanks again to everyone!

Great Deal on Diapers!

We're lucky enough to only have one babe in diapers right now, but Bubba goes through enough diapers for three kids, so we're not exactly gloating. Needless to say, when we spot a diaper deal, we stock up. One of our favorite places to stock up is Diapers.com because they have great prices, will match any price, and accept coupons. Any online vendor who accepts coupons is alright in my book ;-)

We started using Diapers.com after Bubba had just been born. I was in a perpetual state of exhaustion, and our house was complete chaos. I realized we were going to be out of diapers soon but there was no way I was going to pack up Boo and newborn Bubba and go out in the freezing cold. Alright, it wasn't quite as dramatic as I'm making it. Can I be honest? I was just lazy. I found Diapers.com, and once I read that they ship for FREE to your house, and you will receive your order in 1-2 business days, I was sold.

Check out their website by clicking the icon below. They have much more than just diapers, and I've always found their prices to be very reasonable. Also, if you use the code "AFF10" at checkout, you will receive $10 off, and if you spend more than $49, you get FREE shipping.

$10 Off Your First Order of Diapers With Code: AFF10 ($49 Minimum Total Order)

Lego Deal at Toys R Us!

The money saving blog world is all abuzz with this deal! Once Boo and Bubba go to bed, I'm going to grab up this deal for Boo's birthday.

Toys R Us if having a promotion where if you spend $30 in Lego products, you will get a 221 piece Lego, originally valued at $16.99, for FREE. Then there is a $10 off promotional code you can enter: Twitterdeal24. That brings your total down to only $20!

To make the deal even sweeter, if you shop through Cashbaq, you will receive 2% back on your purchase. I signed up today and it was SO easy. Plus, you get a $5 credit just for registering. Click on the icon below to sign up for Cashbaq and get shoppin! This deal will only work for today =)

Thanks to Deal Seeking Mom for the Cashbaq info!

$20 off at New York & Company


Starting today and ending on March 29th, you can take $20 off any purchase of $60 or more. The promotional code is "1891" and to print out the coupon to use in-store, just click here.

Eating Out For Less ~ Restaurant.com Promotion

Another promotional code for Restaurant.com! From now until Tuesday, March 31st, you can get a $25 gift certificate for only $3. That's a savings of 70%! All you have to do is enter the code "SAVE" at checkout, and hit "apply."

Click here for my previous post about Restaurant.com. And click on the icon below for more info

One Year Subscription for Food Network Magazine!


One of my favorite things to do is to read cookbooks, food magazines, and recipe websites. I just love food. I like to think I'm a good cook, but Boo and Bubba's untouched plates at the end of every meal are beginning to give me a complex.

Through Amazon, you can purchase a yearly subscription to Food Network magazine for only $11.99. But if you purchase before March 31st, you will receive a $5 promotional certificate for a future purchase on Amazon. So that brings your total down to $6.99 overall. Not too shabby! There is no shipping fee for magazines, but they do count towards your required balance for FREE Super Saver Shipping on the rest of your order ($25), so if you need anything else at Amazon, now would be a good time to get it!

Click on the Food Network link below for more info.

DVD Deal at Target


I'm so stoked about this deal! It's just perfect for the kids' Easter baskets. Boo and Bubba get CRAZY if they have any candy, so I've been looking for some more non-chocolate/sugar goodies for their baskets. I know, I'm no fun.

If you buy BOTH Bolt and Lilo & Stitch standard DVDs, you will receive $10 off. And if you use this $5 printable, the deal gets even sweeter!

Bolt DVD - $15.99
Lilo & Stitch DVD - $15.99
= $31.98
- $10 special
- $5 coupon
= both DVDs for $16.98

sweeeeeet!! Thanks to Chicks Dig Deals for the awesome coupon!

Deal of the Day From Schnoop.com


I'm all over this deal-of-the-day! For $1, yes ONE dollar, you will receive 15 silver-plated charm ornaments. The 15 you will receive will be randomly selected, so you can't pick which ones you want. You will most likely receive one for each month, and then 3 random charms, but don't be mad at me if you don't! And each "month of the year" charm will have a stone of the month featured in a swarovski crystal. This originally retails at $5.95 to $14.95 per charm, so this deal is awesome!
