This week on Savvy Savings & Scholarships you can score a 1 year Oodles of Fun family membership to The Seattle Children's Museum for only $40! ($75 value!) This is an awesome deal if you have little ones and are looking for some indoor activities this upcoming winter.

This package is for two adults who live at the same physical address and any dependent children plus 4 one time use guest passes! Unfortunately previous museum members are not eligable for this deal and you cannot purchase this for a gift.

Today's Groupon deal is a FABULE$$ one! Get 26 issues of the Sunday Seattle Times paper for only $20! That's only $.76 issue! You are saving $57!

You save those coupons from week to week and then you can do some crazy coupon deals at the grocery store for free or dirt cheap products! Plus it has all the store ads for the upcoming week from Target, Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc so you can see how to use your coupons.

I HIGHLY recommend you get in on this deal right now if you want to start saving a ton of money on your groceries each month!

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.
