Countdown to Black Friday 2011

{{{November 1 – November 25}}}

If your family is like mine, then you wait all year for the day after Thanksgiving, also known as, Black Friday. This is the time when all the stores – both physical and online – drastically reduce their prices in an effort to have one day of quick sales. You can grab electronics, kids toys, clothes, and more, all for a fraction of the price you would normally pay!

For that reason, I’ve compiled a gift guide for anyone looking to find the best deals this holiday season! No one will be left out {hopefully} and there will be gifts for every price range. As usual, I’ll be posting in-depth reviews, deals, and even a few giveaways!!

{Click button above for the different categories. This list will not be complete until December 1, but you’re free to look around! :) }

Halloween Candy Coupons

With Halloween creeping up closer and closer every day, it’s time to start keeping an eye out for candy sales!  I’m fortunate enough to live out in the boonies where Trick-or-Treating children don’t frequent my house, but I still like to grab some inexpensive candy around this time of the year to use towards Halloween treat bags and Christmas gift baskets!

$1.00 off any two Fun Size bags of WONKA candy
$1.00 off 2 Fun Size bags of NESTLE candy
$1.40 off 1 bag of NESTLE or WONKA candy  

Here are a few I’ve found so far. If I find more, I’ll definitely keep you guys posted!  All the ones above are for Nestle and Wonka, but there are more coming out every day we get closer to Halloween! Stay tuned because I’m sure there will be a lot more where these came from!

Did You Grab Your Free Scrubbing Bubbles Kit From Walmart Last Week?

I was finally able to open one of the Scrubbing Bubbles kits I got for FREE {plus overage} from Walmart last week, and was pleasantly surprised to find even more coupons in them! Since they don’t expire until the end of next year, I will definitely be holding these ones in my coupon arsenal for some time and waiting for just the right deal!

Just in case you didn’t get yours yet, here’s the scenario:

Buy 1 Scrubbing Bubbles Start Kit {pictured above} – $3.98
Use – $4/1 Scrubbing Bubbles 1 Step Cleaning Starter Kit, exp. 10/22/11 (SS 09/11/11 #2) 
Total Cost = FREE

So if you got yours, how did you like it?  My husband was actually the one who hooked ours up. He was watching a show and one of the commercials was for these toilet cleaners came on.  I was in the kitchen, so he yells out, “Baby! Come here!”

I walked into the living room right in time to catch the end of the commercial. Daddy was all excited and said, “You see that? You need to see if you can find any coupons for THAT.” I busted out laughing and he shockingly said, “What?! That thing is cool! I wonder how much it is.”

I responded with, “You don’t remember me showing you those the other day? That’s the kit I got for FREE from Walmart the other day! There are a whole bunch of them in the bathroom, I just need to hook one up.”

I tell you what, I’ve never seen Daddy get up so quickly!!  He walked straight to the bathroom, grabbed a box from the shelf, and hooked it up in less than 5-minutes. Since I’d seen the commercial before, I knew what it was supposed to do and questioned how it was able to spray 360-degrees around the toilet. Surprisingly, it does just that! One quick step on the peddle and a foam spray comes out that really does reach the entire bowl and sends a nice “clean” smell through the entire bathroom.  No, it doesn’t come out of the bowl either – I tested! LOL Sorry to get all “review-y” on you, I just thought I should share how this awesome FREE item really was a GREAT find! :)

I love when the coupon you’re looking for is right there on the front page! That’s what happened with today’s $2/1 Schick Disposable Razors coupon from today’s Smart Source insert {one of them, at least – I got 2}.  I was flipping through the newspaper to find my inserts and right there on top was the razor one! :D

If you don’t know already, this $2/1 Schick Disposable Razors coupon will score you some FREE disposable razors at Walmart! The coupon specifically says “No Cash Back if Coupon Value Exceeds Retail Price”, so don’t expect to use that left-over change on anything else, but I could always add some more razors to my stock pile, how about you?!
