My Deal Post

So, there's still not a lot going on here. Carter has an appointment with Audiology today which should be pretty easy. I know that his Audiologist wanted to try the sound booth which will be a new experience for us. Has anyone ever done this? I'm just curious what it's like, and will definitely post pics later.

I've been spending a lot of time online lately just searching for good deals for Christmas. We are trying to do it VERY frugally this year. My proudest moment was when I got a Leap Frog Tag system for Jovie for free! It's a $40 toy that I used a manufacturer coupon for $10, a Target coupon for $10, and a free Target gift card I earned for $20. Pretty sweet huh?! I also price matched the Pictureka Flipper game to $15 and used two $5 coupons (Target and man.) to bring it down to $5. Oh yeah! I plan to go back soon to get two of the $15 Wii or DS games and use the $10 coupon off of 2 that is in the Target book. That's $10 a game.

I've been doing Swagbucks too. I managed to earn $15 in Amazon gift cards that I plan to use toward one of the kids' gifts. So, if you haven't signed up for Swagbucks yet, there's a link on my sidebar. Basically, you earn bucks by using their search engine like you would use Google. It doesn't bring the best results, so I loaded the toolbar and just type my typical websites like Facebook and Ebay into it every time I want to go to there. If you refer friends, you'll also earn a buck for every buck that they earn (did that make sense?!)

If you've got any good deals for my kids, please let me know.
Also, I can get my hands on a few 40% off codes at Kodak, so if you want one of those, shoot me an email at

Now, back to regularly scheduled programming. Wish us luck today at Audiology!
