Frugal Fridays: Weekly Deals + Sales on The Web

 photo frugalfridaysbannerCollage_zps8238506f.jpg

Good morning lovelies! I wanted to introduce a new series on the blog here. With Christmas less than 6 months away (how did that happen! It is July already!), my brain has been thinking about gifts. I have a big family. I mean BIG! My hubby has 5 brothers and sisters. Add in spouses, a cute motherinlaw, nieces, and nephews and it can get cra cra very quickly. I can't just run to the store and buy whatever I want off the shelves...especially if their full price..ahhh! That word makes me cringe. I just can't pay full price! It's not in my budget. So what do I do?  Well all I can say is I try to be as money smart as possible. I always have a list, in my head and on paper, listing everyone in my family that I need to buy gifts for. I always know my motherinlaw is going to get something homemade. She loves that, especially if it is some sort of photo book. I know my nieces are easy to buy for. Give them anything with a princess or Barbie on it and you become their new best friend :) The boys are usually my harder people to buy for. Taking this all into account, I try to pick things up at thrift stores (but I always choose quality over quantity) and I look for online sales. I want to purchase or make something I know my family will love and hopefully not re-gift :) Shopping in advance helps as well. Because I think ahead, I am able to take advantage of thrift store finds or sales. I also keep a birthday box in my room. This is a box, which has gifts in it. So when my kids are invited to a birthday party, we don't have to run down to the store. We just check out the box and I can usually find something.

Because of all of this, I decided we needed a new series here on the ole blog. I know I am not the only savy shopper. I am going to share the sales I have learned about this week and I hope you will share any deals, coupon codes, or sales you know about as well. If we share and help one another, we can all save and become the frugal divas I know we can!

Shade Clothing is saying goodbye --insert sad face--. I get all my layering tees from them, since they are super long. Shade shirts are great for layering underneath shirts and dresses you normally couldn't wear, due to the style being immodest. They're closing, so they are selling everything for up to 80% off. They sadly do not have my size --insert another sad face-- but there are still many other sizes available (even maternity). Check them out.

-- They also have FREE shipping right now --

It's Party Time at Shutterfly. I love that place! I use them for all of my photo printing and photo projects. They always run great sales, so I wait for the sales and then pounce. Literally. I am kinda like a cougar :) This week has a fun promotion for their Affiliates, which yours truly just happens to be. You can use the promo codes INVITEONLY and FRIENDS50 to receive 50% off hardcover books. The best part of this promo is you can cash in on both promo codes. You can also use promo code SHIP30 to receive free shipping on all purchases over $30. Awesome right! I love to think ahead and use these deals for Christmas gifts. What grandma doesn't love a photo book of her grandbabbies?

  1. Awesome! I like your new feature. It's always so hard to shop for everyone and still get gifts that I can feel good about giving. I like the headbands - super cute! And the photo album idea, too. Thanks so much for searching out the deals. Have a super day!

  2. Thanks for posting every day! I always look forward to your blog and your blog is one of the only ones that I read that is updated so frequently. :)

  3. I had never heard of Shade before but their stuff is so cute I'm bummed they're closing! Thanks for the good tips!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing - just ordered the headwrap in the abstract fuschia/tan!!

  5. Hi, I like your blog content. Thanks for sharing your helpful tips. Also, I like the layout of your blog and I'm curious to know if you customized it yourself or if someone else did it for you? I'm new to blogging and I wanna learn to customize mine, but don't know where to start.

  6. Just bought a red polka-dot headwrap! Thanks so much for sharing the code!

  7. we have a big family too, my hubbys 1 of 4 and im 1 of 5, we have 4 kids our selves, parents, 1 grandparent, 12 nieces n nephews and 4 kids of super close friends, kids teachers, our pastor, ect ect PLUS on both sides of the family nearly everyone is born between November and janurary so that's a lot of birthdays to buy for during an already present time. I have already gotten some Christmas bought, and my husband has a list of wood items hes planning on making for some other gifts, and Im doing a few handmade gifts too. I shop clearance all year long, and when I shop online I go thru Ebates, I can get a bit of money back after buying for Christmas stuff.

  8. I share this link from a friend of mine only for the summer sale link under the shop homewares tab....I thought they had some cute inexpensively priced home d├ęcor and I don't know what shipping is as I have not ordered yet anyway...some other items aren't exactly on the frugal list but if you look around maybe they can inspire some new ideas to make things.

  9. sorry I am still in vacation mode the link is

  10. I love these scarves!! This a great feature!

  11. I love this! I need to start tinking about presents for my family members! Similar to what Brittney S said, I use eBates when I shop online. Sometimes, I only receive 1% cash back but other times I have received up to 6%. Either way, it all adds up. Plus, they typically have some coupon codes listed for you. And the free $10 gift card that pops up when you log on to their website really does get mailed to you. It is definitely worth the extra click to same a few bucks!

  12. always has RX glasses starting at $6.95 (even regular sunglasses) and they have deals and coupons. Such a wonderful site.
