Happy Friday: Toy Drive All Year Long

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Jennifer:

I love being able to donate toys at Christmas time, but sometimes I wait too long into the year and don’t have the extra money to do so. I came up with this plan where I have a budget of only $10 a month. Each month, I buy one toy and keep track of it on my sheet. At the end of the year, I will have purchased 12 toys and I won’t even miss the money that I’ve spent through the months. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner!

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: Be Kind to Cashiers

Sent from reader, Kay:

I work as a cashier at Target. Yesterday, I had a guest who was purchasing various things with coupons along with these bottles of Lysol. Out of the blue she asked me if I use Lysol and I said I do. She then gave me 2 coupons for $1/1 Lysol cleaner. They were on clearance at my store for $1.14 (originally $2.29) so only 14 cents after the coupons!

She could’ve cleared the shelf and used the coupons herself but instead she left few bottles for other guests as well as for me. After my team member discount it came down to only 15 cents for two bottles! It was one of the most touching and sweetest things a guest has done for me. I want to say thank you for those who are nice to cashiers – we want everyone to get out happy and with no incidents and these gestures really mean a lot.

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: Amazing Egg Hunt

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Tera:

I’m all set to go for Sunday’s AMAZING Egg Hunt, modeled after The Amazing Race. The hunt includes Detours, Road Blocks, and Route Info, just like on the show, with clues that reveal where the kids should go next and what to do when they get there.

Some of the Detours are placing a marshmallow Peep on your forehead and getting it to your mouth using only your facial muscles and flinging plastic Easter eggs into a basket using a towel as a catapult. Road Blocks include knocking a pencil that’s several feet away down by rolling marbles at it and making a tower out of plastic Easter eggs and TP tubes. Route Info instructs the kids to move from place to place on foot, on bike, jumping, army crawling, hopping like a bunny and walking backwards. It’s all just silly fun stuff with an Easter theme.

The kids have to unscramble letters that they’ve collected along the way to discover the location of the Pit Stop. At the Pit Stop, the kids will find a few little Easter gifts, like sidewalk chalk (on sale with a coupon at Target this week), matchbox cars (buy one, get one half off at Target this week), and of course, chocolate bunnies (that I got free using the Brach’s coupons)

Setting up the Amazing Egg Hunt was low cost and not very difficult–it just took a little bit of creativity and organization–and I love that my kids will be having fun together and making memories rather than doing a traditional egg hunt where it’s over in a matter of minutes and then the kids gorge themselves on candy.

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: Stretching the Savings

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Sunela:

From following your site and entering free codes onto the Huggies website, I won a year’s supply of Huggies diapers! I was able to stretch out the savings even more by pairing the free coupons I was sent with store deals (e.g. Buy a jumbo pack of Huggies, get $3 ECB). It was so much fun getting to use all those free product coupons!!

Happy Friday: I Love My Organizer Cart

Sent from reader, Patty:

I received and put together this Honey-Can-Do 12 Drawer Chrome Studio Organizer Cart that I bought through Amazon. This is so wonderful that I can hardly contain my excitement! Every night my husband goes to bed before I do, and I usually do my coupon stuff after. So I would have to grab all my containers, bags and baskets that I have my supplies in and bring them out EVERY night. This was becoming annoying! This cart is so perfect, everything I need is all in one place! I just roll it out to the living room and do my thing!

Happy Friday: Frugal Princess Birthday Party

Sent from reader, Kelly:

I did an at-home party in my basement for my daughter’s fifth birthday. I used pink plastic tablecloths and ribbon from the dollar store to make adorable and fancy seat covers. I also bought tea cups and saucers from Goodwill, so that all of the princesses could drink from a real china cup! I had a friend dress up as a princess and serve the pink lemonade! I also had the girls all come dressed up in princess outfits and my father in law did a portrait session with each kid! We served finger sandwiches! So adorable! The whole party was under $60 for 15 kids!

Happy Friday: Currency Pages for Coupons

Sent from reader, Tobey:

I have been couponing for many years and last summer, I started using currency pages for my printed coupons and they are the perfect fit. What makes me happy? Filling my coupon book. I think my sons first word was coupon. These pages come 4 to a page – I cut them to 3 to fit my binder. With these, I no longer have to fold my coupons. Just wanted to share in case someone else doesn’t know about these yet.

HAPPY FRIDAY! :D

Happy Friday: Free Samples Box at Walgreens

Sent from reader, Nicole:

After seeing all the negativity related to Walgreens, it was refreshing to find a coupon friendly store. This was at the beauty counter and had coupons and tiny mail card samples as well as travel-sized Dove men’s body washes. So maybe if people have been avoiding them, as I was, they should give it one more try.

Happy Friday! I have a dear friend who is going through a difficult process. So, with inspiration from Hip2Save, I decided to make her a “Bad Day Box” for the day when she knows she’s doing the right thing, but everything seems to be going wrong. Here’s to a better ‘bad day’!
