Target: Halloween Clearance!

Target stores should be moving all of their left over Halloween merchandise to 75% off today! Definitely worth it to go check out what they have left! I went yesterday and got a few cute decorations for next year and some Hershey's Kisses to use at Christmas for a very good price!

The sale includes candy so if you have any coupons left over from Halloween definitely take them along with you! Christmas is coming and you can add it to gift baskets or stockings!

The Hershey's Kisses I got yesterday were on sale for $2.44 and I had a Target coupon for $1 off + a Target Manuf. Catalina for another $1 off! You can't beat $.44! They are not even Halloween colors, they are in packs of 3 so all I will have to do is take them out of their trick or treat packages!

Rue La La: CHEAP Calvin Klein!

Good Morning!

I just wanted to let you all know about a great sale going on at Rue La La. It is an invitation only boutique sale site kind of like Zulily but for Men's and Women's designer brands. For the next 2 days they are having a Final Sale event going on for a lot of brands at really good prices. I just ordered a pair of Calvin Klein workout pants for only $5 shipped!

I signed up a few days ago and received a $20 credit just for signing up! If you have already signed up and received your $20 credit you can get a free bathing suit from Calvin Klein! The credit does count toward shipping so with a $9.90 bathing suit and $9.95 shipping it comes out free!

I am not sure if the $20 credit promotion is still going on but it would be worth a shot to sign up and see if it happens! The credit will take up to 48 hours to appear in your account so it may not show up in time for this sale but the prices are still great even if you don't have the credit.

Go HERE to sign up for free and check out the Final Sale, Act 2 brands! There are some great prices on Calvin Klein, Patagonia and Michael Stars along with a bunch of other high end brands.

Shutterfly Holiday Cards!

So I am going to ask it! How many of you have started your Christmas shopping already? I actually am doing pretty well this year and started back in January during the after Christmas clearance sales! Now I just need to make my gift list, organize the gifts I already have and then buy anything that hasn't been bought yet. My goal every year is to give well without breaking our bank account; I am excited with how far along I am already for this season!

One thing I hadn't thought about yet was our annual Christmas card! I am in LOVE with Shutterfly's holiday card designs this year; especially the design above! Last year I waited way too long, didn't have a photo and ended up getting an "ok" card at the last minute and for a pretty penny. This year I am bound and determined to be prepared and get it done early and for a good price!

Shutterfly has such a huge assortment of Christmas cards, holiday party invitations and even personalized gift tags!

Get started HERE and pick out your favorite design! You can even get one for free when you enter CARD4U at checkout! Now I just need to figure out which cute photo of my daughter that I am going to use!

Note: You can also get 10% cash back by shopping through ShopAtHome! New member? Sign up HERE and get a $5 bonus!

Attn Bloggers: Are you interested in receiving 50 free holiday cards this year? Learn how HERE!

Disclosure: I am participating in the 50 free cards promotion from Shutterfly and will be receiving a code for the cards as compensation for this post. However, all opinions expressed in this post are my own and have not been influenced by the fact that I am receiving free cards.

Hi Guys!

I just wanted to give a quick update on me and let you know that I am sorry I have been a bad blogger the last couple of weeks! I can't believe I haven't posted in almost two weeks, where has the time gone?!

My family has been very busy with fall fun and travel as well as busy times at my job and finally getting my photography business off the ground! It's a very very exciting time in my life right now so I have been struggling with balancing my time equally and still trying to have a home life.

Rest assured, I will be back! I have a FABULE$$ giveaway from MyBlogSpark coming your way in the next few days as well as a few other posts that I have up my sleeve. While I am not posting as often as I was before I will hopefully be posting some worthwhile reads and amazing bargains in the future.

Got Blackberries? Make Cobbler!

This time of year in the Seattle area there is an abundance of blackberries that are free for the picking! Blackberry bushes grow wild in this area and most of the time are considered a nuisance, except of course when you get your bowl (or box!) full of free berries in the fall!

This year I was bound and determined to get as many berries as I could store from local parks, side streets and even my back yard! I wanted to make jam with some and freeze the rest so that I could have berries all year without having paid a dime. Well, Naomi and I set out last week to make that happen and I quickly realized on my first bush that my fear of large spiders GREATLY outweighs this desire to obtain free produce! I only got about 3 cups of blackberries before I gave up fighting with webs and very very large, hairy spiders!

We had company over for dinner that night so I figured I would make dessert with what I got, but I didn't even have enough to make a cobbler! I had to improvise and use some of the very ripe peaches I had in my fridge with the blackberries. Much to my surprise, this cobbler was one of the best I have ever tasted and was a HUGE hit at dinner that night!

I found THIS recipe and improvised using 1/2 blackberries, 1/2 ripe, peeled peaches. I used about 2 1/2 cups of berries & almost 2 cups of cubed peaches.

Dissolve 2 tbsp corn starch with 1/4 cup cold water in a pot and mix in 1 cup of sugar, 1 tbsp lemon juice & your fruits. Bring the mixture to a boil stirring often.

In the meantime, mix 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt in a large bowl. Cut in 6 tbsp of butter into the dry mix until it looks like crumbs. Slowly mix in 1/4 cup of boiling water until the mixture is evenly moist.

Transfer your fruit mixture into a baking dish (recipe calls for cast iron skillet but I didn't have one and my casserole dish worked great). Drop your dough into the dish by the spoonful covering the fruit as much as you can.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes until the dough is golden brown. I highly recommend you cover a cookie sheet with foil and place it on the rack directly below the dish as the fruit mix did spill over quite a bit during baking.

Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (or Cool Whip since we all got a bunch for free last week, right?!) and ENJOY!

Super Savings Saturday: Albertsons!

Do you remember my post from a couple days ago announcing free shredded cheese at Albertsons? Check it out HERE if you missed it!

I wanted to do a quick "bragger" post and show you just how Fabule$$ this deal is! I printed only 2 coupons for this deal, spent $5 out of pocket, saved over $40 and have a $5 Catalina coupon to use toward my next Albertsons purchase! That means that I got all of the above for FREE!!

Cool Whip Deal (no coupons needed!)

On sale for $1 each.

Buy 5 - $5.00

Pay $5.00 OOP - Receive a $5.00 Catalina toward your next purchase!

Final cost: 5 tubs for FREE!

Now you are probably thinking: "What in the world?! Who needs that much cheese and Cool Whip?!"

You are right, I don't!

I called around to a couple of family members and found out what types of cheese they like the best, made a little list and bought enough to give a couple bags to each person! Plus my MIL uses Cool Whip in her coffee every morning so she is getting a few of those tubs. This is why I love couponing so much, it doesn't just benefit my family but other families as well! I am actually going to go back for another round of cheese just to give away.
