Kmart has free shipping plus an additional 10% off almost everything, including clearance. Use code kshipand108 in your cart or at checkout. You can also get 2% cash back at ebates or 3% cash back at fatwallet, where I found this hot deal.


The holiday season is right around the corner, are you preparing? We are almost done with August, and November will be here before you know it. I am so tired of the holidays flying by that I am determined to be organized and really enjoy it this year.

Getting back into the routine of school will make the rest of August fly by, so I need to take advantage of September - it may be my best chance to get stuff done! Once October comes we'll be loaded with things to do at/for school and my sister-in-law is having her wedding on Halloween (so family and friends will be flying in and we will spend a few days visiting with everyone as well). My girls both have November birthdays so we'll have parties to worry about, then right into Thanksgiving (and now we have to make up 2 days at school because of tropical storm Fay!). Once Thanksgiving is done we have a ton of things going on (school functions, parades, charity work, holiday parties, etc...). Not to mention cooking & decorating! Then BAM, it's Christmas.

I have already started some Christmas shopping. We do go a little overboard, but can only do so because I take advantage of great deals all year long (then hide them from the kids). I do have a little envelope for Christmas shopping that I put money in, a little every week. Once it's gone that's it, so I do try to get the best deals ( I rarely sleep on Thanksgiving night in anticipation of Black Friday sales!). Does anyone else start holiday stuff this early? Any tips on making time slow down?

While looking for coupons I came across this offer from Quaker. The offer says that if you join the Mom's club you can receive products and discounts, so I'll give it a try. You can check it out here.
