Free Audiobook = Frugal Christmas Gift

I'm a gifter. I love to give gifts. I'd give gifts to all our loved ones and friends, if we had the money for it. When I see opportunities such as this one, I have to share. Each month, ChristianAudio.com gives away one free title. This month it is "Think" by John Piper, narrated by Wayne Shepherd. I have not read (or listened to) this book myself but have seen great reviews for it. You can gift any book, including the free title, to someone else! The page does not state that there is a limit to gifting.

Review: "Gabby, God's Little Angel" by Sheila Walsh



This is the first book in Sheila Walsh's new series.

Gabby, a guardian angel in training whose job is to show God's love. The angels are watching children play on earth and see an adventurous girl named Sophie. At first glace, Gabby thinks that Sophie needs a "very big, ginormous angel" only to find that God has chosen her to be Sophie's guardian angel. After a wild experience, Sophie realizes that it seems as though someone was protecting her. Her mom reads her a Bible verse from Psalms to show her how God sends his angels to protect the ones he loves.

Have a great day!

Real Couponing: 3pk Razors for $0.14!

Ok, so I'm a fan of Extreme Couponing (don't shoot me, lol) but for entertainment purposes only. It's unrealistic to think that every item on your grocery list can be free, especially meat. I had a little fun this week, and decided to try to maximize my savings at the grocery store. I went to a coupon site and made my list of sale items. I found that I had several higher value coupons than those listed. One of which was for the Schick Quattro 3 pack razors. They are on sale at Kroger for 6.28 BOGO free, making them 3.14 each. I had 3 coupons good on single items - a $5/1 coupon and $2/1 (x2.) 

Here's how they worked out for $0.14 each pack (or 0.05 per razor):

Holidays with Tiny Prints

It's the final stretch of 2011, with the holiday season right around the corner. This time of year is when I begin planning for our Christmas cards. Our budget doesn't allow for too many gifts, but cards are an affordable alternative. As a result, I strive to make my cards really amazing. 

This year I am really excited about the card options at Tiny Prints. They have folded, flat, tri-fold, pop-up, post cards, flip cards and circle holiday cards. I am really leaning towards the circle cards this year, specifically the "Divine Night" design in black. 



Circle cards are double sided 5.50x5.50 inch cards hole punched and include ribbon to tie a loop. These are awesome for hanging them up on your loved ones Christmas trees, which is how I like to display the greeting cards I receive.
