$5 Off of "The Help" + Target Deal

Go here to print your coupon for $5 off of "The Help."  With all of the holiday dvd and blu ray deals happening this should make for a pretty nice price on one of the most heartwarming stories I've seen this year.  You will need to hurry though, because this coupon expires on 12/11/11!

This week you can get "The Help" at Target for $19.99, only $14.99 after the $5 coupon for the 2 disc set.  I don't know how much the 3 disc one is.

Apple Ipad First Generation

Today you can get an Apple IPad First Generation (refurbished) for *only* $339.99 at Daily Steals, and Friday means FREE SHIPPING!!  If you happen to be in the market for one of these and don't need the IPad 2 options consider this one.

As far as IPads go, I think that the 32gb is the most reasonable storage capacity and prefer the wi-fi only option because I am a cheapskate.

Keep in mind this one comes with a 90 day warranty instead of one year, however you may be able to find extended warranties online.  Good luck:)

Walgreens Schick Razor Moneymaker!!

This week you can score a smokin' hot deal on Schick Razors at Walgreens if you have the right coupons.  If not, the deal is still good if you can find the right products.  Here's what I did:

Walgreens Sale: Schick Razors 8.99+ $4 Register Reward (Limit 1 per transaction, sadly)

My Deal:
Schick Quattro 8.99
Schick Quatrro 8.99
BOGO coup    -8.99 (Buy One Get One Free coupon from 11/6 Smart Source Insert)
-$6 WYB2       -6.00 (printable from, NLA)
Total                 2.99 PLUS I got one Register Reward for $4

This puts me ahead by $1.

I'm not done!!

On the two packs of razors there was an offer for a $10 ITunes Gift Card.  Two codes from specially marked razors earns one $10 card.  My card is on the way, perfect because Santa is bringing an I Pad:)

So basically, right now I have two new packs of razors, $4 of Register Rewards, and one $10 ITunes card for $2.99 plus tax.
These same coupons may not be available for you, but you can still snag a great bargain.  If you could find two coupons for $2 off of Schick (check your coupons, and online sources) you could do two purchases and sang one razor for $6.99 and one $4 Register Reward each.  If they were specially marked with the $10 ITunes card offer you could also submit for that making your deal cost $13.98.

Cocoa Two Ways from People Magazine

I found these recipes in the People Extra, the Holiday 2011 issue.  On Page 39 there's an article about Carmelo & La La Anthony's first holiday together in New York.  In the end the couple share two recipes for "Cocoa 2 Ways" both hot and cold from page 41 of People Extra Holiday 2011.  I think I'll be trying both this holiday.

Frrrozen Hot Chocolate
Serves 2 (makes about 4 cups)
1/3 cup evaporated instant dry milk
1/3 cup sugar
4 tbsp. cocoa
1 cup milk
3 cups ice
1/4 cup whipped cream
2 tsp. shaved chocolate curls

1.  Stir dry milk, sugar anf cocoa in a small bowl until completely mixed.
2. Add ingredients to blender in the following order: milk, then dry mix, then ice.
3.  Blend for 20 to 30 seconds until smooth and daquiri-like in texture.
4.  Pour into large glass and top with whipped cream and shaved chocolate

Serendipitous Hot Chocolate
Serves 1

1 cup hot milk
2 tbsp. sugar
4 tsp. unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup whipped cream
1 tsp shaved chocolate curls
1/4 tsp. grated orange rind
a Dash of Cinnamon

1.  Combine milk, sugar, cocoa, vanilla and salt in blender leaving top slightly unsealed to prevent hot steam from forming.  Blend on high for 30 seconds.
2.  Pour into a tall mug and top with whipped cream, sprinkle with chocolate curls, orange rind and cinammon.

Sears Cares:)

A friend of mine posted this to her status on Facebook, recognizing Sears for thier excellent military employee benefits when they are called to duty.  I rarely post about deals at Sears, but considering how most companies eliminate programs in hard times I think Sears deserves some free advertising this holiday.  Check out the post below, complete with verification at

I checked this out at Snopes myself and found that Sears is not the only company that goes above and beyond to preserve military employee benefits when they are called to duty.  Check out the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve website to find out about other companies treating thier military well.

If you will consider making a purchase from Sears this year, save time and see  They are offering free shipping on Christmas orders of $39.99 or more, and daily deals that just may help you be a frugal Santa.
I know we needed this reminder, since Sears isn't always our first choice. It's amazing when you think of how long the 2 wars have lasted and Sears hasn't withdrawn from their commitment. Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?

How does Sears treat its employees who are called up for military duty? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more.... Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up for active duty.

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called up reservist employees for up to two years.

I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears at least once, and be sure to find a
manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement & feedback it well deserves.

Pass it on !!

Someone decided to check this before sending it forward. So they sent the following
e-mail to the Sears Customer Service Department:

I received this e-mail and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your company. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead of another store for a like item, even if it's cheaper at that store. This is their answer to my e-mail:

Dear Customer:

Thank you for contacting Sears.The information is factual. We appreciate your positive feedback.

Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our
young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the
burden they bear at this time.

Bill Thorn
Sears Customer Care

Please pass this on to all your friends. Sears needs to be recognized for this outstanding contribution and we need to show them as Americans, we do
appreciate what they are doing for our military!!!
