We were out for the weekend, went to a waterpark!! The Kalahari in Sandusky, OH They are running specials... $299 for 2 nights and admission to the waterpark (admission alone costs $39+ a person a day!)
We had a beautiful room with fridge, microwave (so we brought lunch supplies) and a small patio. It was a long walk to the waterpark, but worth it for the price.
Hubby was talking to another guest and they compared it to Disney World without the 18-20 hour drive. Nice place if you're looking for a vacation!
So... I wasn't able to get Walgreens up in a timely fashion... so I found a link to one that has it all together for you.
Here is a link to the Thrifty Momma who has done a good job putting together this weeks deals at Walgreens.

We haven't got our snow here this year, and doesn't look like it's coming,
so no dreaming of a white Christmas.
My little 3 yr old keeps saying it can't be Christmas without snow. I think he'll change his mind when the gifts start coming... although we've already had one round of Christmas celebration with Hubby's family and he's not calling it Christmas yet, so we'll see.
So, spend time with your family today if you can and enjoy every minute of it! I plan on it... from the food and festivities, to the board games and naps, it's all good!
If you're unable to spend time with your family I challenge you to do something special for someone today, even someone you don't know. It will give you a boost for the day, and who knows... the person you bless may need it more than ever!
We'll talk about deals again soon... promise! Today is reserved for family, friends, helping others, and celebrating Jesus' Birthday! Have Fun!

Meijer is offering Santa Bucks again Sunday through Tuesday. You can find them here. An example of 1 is $4 off any $19.97+ up item.
Also... for any $100 you spend in general merchandise and apparel in one transaction, you get a coupon for 5% off your next grocery purchase at Meijer. You can combine up to 4 of these coupons for a total of 20% off your next grocery bill. Keep a lookout on your way out of the store as many of these just get thrown away or dropped and can mean a great find for you.
I just bought one of these for myself a few days ago and thought I would pass along the deal, although it's changed in price since I bought it... it's still a good buy.
I got the chance to use them for the first time Saturday and they are great on first impression.
The price fluctuates... you may want to put it in your cart and come back to see if the price drops before you actually purchase it... if you're willing to take the risk.
I bought my set for $59.97 and got free shipping and the bonus Shear and Cheese Knife set as described in the link, as I write it is priced at $99.99 (the same set without the bonuses was on sale for $149 at Kohl's last week!). It pays at Amazon to keep an eye on the prices and wait for the best deal.
I also qualify for $85 worth of free meat from Omaha Steaks as described here... and the free magazine subscription of which I will choose the $8 refund instead.
Magazine details... Spend $50 or more in our Home & Garden Store and you can get one of the following magazines included with your purchase: Gourmet, Condé Nast Traveler, Architectural Digest, Bon Appétit, Domino, or Glamour. All qualifying subscriptions have an $8 value
Hubby loves the cheese knives already! Almost worth the buy to see him so happy cutting the cheese... no pun intended :)
Here's a great buy on a 12 inch Calphalon Pan with lid!
Reg $168, currently $20.52 at Amazon and shipped free if you purchase $25 in qualifying products from Amazon. Amazon's had some great buys on these recently, but the prices have gone up and down... if you're looking for a good pan, get one before the prices go back up!
Also... purchase $50 in Home and Garden at Amazon and get a free magazine subscription to Gourmet, Condé Nast Traveler, Architectural Digest, Bon Appétit, Domino, or Glamour, or choose to send in for an $8 refund instead. See details here

These are typically very expensive straighteners, but are said to be the best of the best. There are several widths, this one being the one inch which is nice because with some practice you can manage some loose curls with it.
Unfortunately I don't have one of these myself and instead I have a less expensive model you can purchase in the store... not sure of the brand without going to look. It works fine for me, but I've not experienced the CHI either so maybe don't know what I'm missing!
So... if you have someone insisting on a CHI... or maybe you just want to impress them that you even know what they are... check out Amazon for a good buy. This one runs, according to Amazon $190+ and is on sale for $69.99 w/free shipping.
I occasionally hear of people getting these for around $100, but never heard of less.
My posts have been few and far between the last few days. Sundays are usually minimal anyway, but Mondays I'm usually on it!
I've been down with the flu bug since Sunday evening but I'm making a comeback today... Lord willing.
Taking the little guy to preschool and for pictures today and will try and post again later today if I can, I have other things to catch up on too.... including lots of Christmas presents that came from Amazon that need wrapped :)
You can get 10 free Holiday cards right now through VistaPrint...
or get 20 cards for $1.99
These are nice photo cards... click on the links above to take a look.
VistaPrint is a great online resource for various home or business office supplies. I've used them myself for business cards and their service was quick & the product I received met my expectations.
Most of their free products have their logo on the back of them to advertise their site. It is small and not significant, but there. If that doesn't bother you, you can often get products from them for free + shipping costs.
If you want more detailed products, or wish to not have their logo on the products you will pay a little more for the items you purchase, but their prices still seem very inexpensive.
Here are the good buys I see at Walgreen's this week...
did I miss any?
There may be another Buy $25, get $5 RR later in the week again. As soon as I hear of it, I will post a note about it. It might pay to wait and see if you will have the chance to shop later in the week.
Spend $50 or more in our Home & Garden Store and receive a free one-year subscription to Bon Appétit (an $8 value) with your purchase. If you don't want the subscription, you can usually request a refund instead which comes in the form of a check... so another $8 back on your purchase.
Oops... My link didn't work! Now it does! Go get your coupon..
I saw these in the store yesterday and they are cute! I'm going to get a small holiday gift bag that is on sale this week for 50% off making them $.50 each to get my Lambie for free! My total will be $.54 I believe if I figure in tax. Not too bad!
Many Old Navy Stores are giving away movie tickets
Tomorrow, 12/13/08 at their stores
They are said to have anywhere from 50-200 ticket packets available per store and will be giving away bracelets as you enter. If you purchase $20 worth of merchandise you qualify for a movie ticket packet in exchange for the bracelet when you checkout, if there are any remaining tickets.
You must be at least 16 years old to participate.
If you need to get something yet at Old Navy, this might be the time!
It seems I'm always posting online deals these days. There are so many good finds this time of the year that are hard to pass up!
Amazon is a great place to find Christmas gifts that are greatly discounted and often delivered to your door for free. I find many kids toys, kitchen supplies & other gifts at Amazon.
Some other places to find great buys are Disney, JCPenney's and Restaurant.com to name a few.
Always search online for codesbefore making a purchase anywhere online... just type in your search bar the store name followed by the words discount codes and if there are any current ones they should come up in a number of websites that track these.
Amazon has had some great toy deals lately, and paired with other rebates and free gifts, the deals only get better. Here are a few examples of items I've come across that are worth mentioning...
Most of these deals have free shipping with a $25 order... just make sure you select the right shipping option at checkout.
If you can't tell... I love Amazon shopping! There always seems to be something that is a good buy that gets my attention.
Another note about Amazon... If you find something you're interested in, put it in your cart even if it's not at a price you want. If you make an account with them, you can add items to your cart (and then move them to a save for later option) and watch them to see if the price changes. Anytime you sign in, they will tell you if a price has gone down on anything in your cart or your saved items, great benefit if you're looking for a sale on something special.
