Small Business Saturday!

November 24, 2012 Leave a comment

Today is Small Business Saturday! Basically it’s a day to promote small, local businesses by shopping at them. American Express has a promotion that they do for Small Business Saturday. They give you a $25 statement credit if you spend $25 or more at a small business.

The BF and I try to spend just about $25 so that whatever we purchase is basically free. And all we have to do is use our card at the small business merchant. American Express does the rest and the statement credit comes in a few days! SO FAST!

This year, I got $26 dollars worth of cookies from Cookie Corner!

The BF let me use his Amercan Express card to buy a Hello Kitty pillow from Sanrio which costed $25.13!

So after the $25 statement credits that we’ll get (each, for each of our American Express cards), those will basically be free! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love that.

Christmas Clearance

January 4, 2012 2 comments

I LOVE the holidays, and though I’m always sad to see the season come to an end, I AM happy to usher in some of the excellent store clearances that follow!

Yesterday night I went to Target, and they were having 70% off of their Christmas clearance items! Among the usual tissue paper and ribbon that I usually pick up for next year were a few -quirky- but useful items that I just HAD to pick up.

First were a couple of BIG super-sparkly stick-on ribbons. (You know, for those really big gift boxes that look absolutely stupid with a regular-sized stick-on ribbon on it.)

$.90 cents each!

Also, an assorted box of mini Knott’s Berry Farm jams! (Perfect for someone like my Grandma, who loves any kind of jam or jelly, but doesn’t want to buy full-sized jars of each!)

$1.79 per box!

Another Christmas clearance item that I picked up was a “valet tray“. Before last night, I had never heard of a valet tray. (It’s basically a men’s organizer to keep things like watches, cufflinks, keys, etc. all in one place.) I saw it and immediately decided to re-purpose it as an organizing tool for my computer desk.

$3.59 each

And when your computer desk looks like THIS:

Believe me, you’re gonna need something like that to get a little organized! Hahahaha…….

But I digress…

I also found some baking goods! Still good for the eating, but just ten times cheaper, AND it comes with extras!

$1.79 for the sugar cookie mix with snowman oven mitt & $1.79 for the snickerdoodle cookie mix with mini whisk!

$2.99 for a chocolate cupcake mix kit with Christmas carrier box, toppers, and sprinkles!

All of this for just about $15 bucks! Not too shabby, eh? ๐Ÿ™‚
