Deals to Start Your Holidays

We're coming up on the holiday season. And that means that the stores will all be vying for your attention, or your dollar! They're not even waiting until the day after Thanksgiving this year. With all the great deals, it's sometimes hard to control myself! One thing we've found helpful is to set a budget for our holiday spending. Usually we set aside money each month so it's not such a shock come Nov/Dec. Have both an overall budget and a budget per person. Make a list of everyone you're planning to buy for early on, including teachers, work exchanges, etc. Don't let anything sneak up on you! Here are a few deals to get you started this holiday season.

Thanksgiving for Less turkeys for .40/lb and more
Free Samples updates every couple of weeks
Nov 7th In-Store Savings lots of electronics posted, not sure what else will be on sale

Community Day Sale donate $5 to a local organization and get a coupon booklet- a $10 off plus many % off coupons
(I'm selling these for my local MOPS group, e-mail me if you want some coupons!)

Home Depot
Christmas light trade in $3 off LED lights
Power Drill trade in 15% off a new drill

Photo Cards 50 free photo cards

Most stores will offer free shipping from their online sites. See if your favorite store has a facebook fan page, or an e-mail newsletter. These are great places to get extra coupons or free products. Do you know of any other deals coming up in the next week or two?
