25% off Deseret Book

You can get 25% off any one item at regular price at Deseret Book by entering the code 8FCRETC prior to checkout from now until Oct 14th. It doesn't always show up as a discount, so I have had to call their customer service (800)453-4532 before and they take care of it. Kristin

Are you all familiar with www.freecycle.org? If you're not, you really should check it out! When you go to that site, it asks for your zip code, then puts you in your geographical freecycle area.

Here's how freecycle works:

1. You have something you don't need anymore, but think someone else may have a use for it.

2. You post "OFFERED: item (location)" on the website.

3. People can email you (but they don't see your email address; like craigslist) if they're interested

4. You decide who gets it and set up a pick up time and location with them.


1. You need something, so you post, "WANTED: item (location)"

2. People check their closets, and lo and behold, they have it and aren't using it.

3. They email you, set up a pick up, and everybody's happy!

It is always a good feeling to give something away to someone you know will need/want to use it, and it's a GREAT feeling to get something for free! I've been freecycling for about a year, and so far I've received...

yoga mats, a bread machine, a canner and a TON of wide mouth quart jars (I mean TONS), dress shoes, groovy girls toys, hermit crab terrarium, bookshelves (for storing all those jars!) ... you get the idea. It's also been satisfying to find good homes for stuff we don't need anymore (we don't live close to a DI trailer, plus, sometimes it's easier to part with it if you know it's meeting an actual need of a person in your community. I've even given away bags of food from cleaning out the pantry! It's also a FAB place to find/get rid of moving boxes!

Have a I sold you, yet?! Go check it out! Kristin

15% off at Kohl's - with online coupon

Are there Kohl's dept stores anywhere except here? They have great clearance, and to make it even better, this weekend only (27-28), I have a coupon for 15% off that can be used on your total purchase. I am pretty sure it can be used online, too.

If you'd like me to send you the coupon, I'd be happy to forward it to you. Just email Andrea and she can forward it to me (I think that will work?). Kristin

Walgreens Easy Saver

Have you heard of this program? It's a rebate program at Walgreens. Every month they offer FREE STUFF. My friend, Shelly, told me about it and I'm hooked. I go there every month to see what stuff I can get. The only bad part about it used to be that I had to take the time to fill out the little sheet and mail it in. But I faithfully did it.

NOW, they've started an online rebate process that is SOOOO much faster and easier. You do have to *register* with them to be eligible for this. How many registrations of mine are out there in the cyberworld these days???

If you click on the link, you can view the catalog to see what products are available this month. Many of them are just discounted and then there are always a couple of free items each month. If you get the rebate put onto a Walgreens gift card, they add 10%.

Totally worth it. This month I got free nail polish, chapstick (My lips hurt REAL BAD!), toothpaste, hair product, and Excederin (for my hubbie's old man back).

I recommend going early on in the month because sometimes they run out of the free items.

Here we go!

I'm excited to have a place to share bargains with each other.
