The first place we headed was The Gap. I had $110 in gift cards from www.mypoints.com. I got a bag full of stuff here for $13 out of pocket. Made clicking on all those emails all year long well worth it!
Next we headed back to Limited Too. They found such a great sale on Saturday with my MIL, that I decided to head back. I have a niece that will love their stuff. I got $134.00 in clothing for $55 out of pocket... plus $40 in too bucks to use later! I used their B1G1F sale plus a 30% off coupon to get these deals. This is the best Limited Too sale I have ever seen but... they put a flyer in my bag that says biggest sale ever on Black Friday. Are they giving it away?
DH and I went to lunch at Olive Garden. We had a $10 gift card and a $5 coupon. We had a great lunch for $12 plus tip.
Next was Target where I used this coupon... http://www.goodycomfort.com/res/pdf/ouchless_coupon.pdf to get hair stuff for my DD for .19 cents!
Yes, we did by a whole lot more but these were the best deals I found. We then headed home to a quiet night with the kids and settled down with popcorn and this show... A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (Remastered Deluxe Edition) on tv.
What deals have you found so far?

.... the start of a new roof......
.... and a new roof!!!!!!
................. and the project stalled since you can not put shingles on a roof with a half inch of snow on top of it. We will have just a little more work and then have to stop until spring. The main part is finished. It just needs all the finishing touches now.

- home made bean bags - there are so many things to do with these!
- sew, knit or crochet a doll blanket for any little girl. Very little knowledge or sewing, knitting or crochet is needed for this.
- home made play dough Home Made Playdough Recipes
- home made candy
- make a scarf. This can be as simple as a piece of fleece or do a simple knit or crochet stitch.
- I like to get a gift card to a local business. You can get as little as $5 to a local coffee shop. This is my favorite teacher gift! Add this to a home made card from your child and the teacher will smile!
- a plant. Get a pot at a local thrift store and snip part of your plant off to make a new plant in your "new" pot
- home made stationary, note cards or recipe cards. With some inexpensive paper and a rubber stamp you can make a nice little gift!
- make a CD of the person's favorite music! Borrow CD's from the library for this.
- knit or crochet a scarf or dish cloth.
- home made snacks. So many times I see the cute little metal tins very cheap at thrift stores. These are great to fill with home made snacks such as chocolate covered pretzels, home made fudge, spiced pretzels or nuts you made from scratch or even some jerky. Everyone does cookies so I try to stay away from that.
- jar recipes. This is an oldie but a goodie and there are so many recipes for these! Look here... Mary Mae's Jars and Mixes
-cinnamon ornaments - Cinnamon Dough Ornaments - Kaboose.com - these smell SO GOOD!
- home made fire baskets. I was at a big sporting goods store and saw these pretty baskets filled with pine cones and birch wood selling for $35. I thought these are so simple to make ... why would anyone buy them? Melt some way over nice big pine cones that you found in the woods some where, add some nice looking pieces of wood and stick them in a thrift basket with a bow. Just look at these and use your imagination.....

Dr. Pepper says the coupons will be available for 24 hours starting at 12:01 a.m. eastern time on November twenty-third. It will take 4-6 weeks for the coupons to arrive. They will expire on February 28, 2009. Full terms and conditions are on Dr. Pepper's website.
Limited Too.... Has buy 1 Get 1 Free on everything in the store! Plus... we had a 30% off coupon that was good off the total purchase! Our bill was $276. After the B1G1F discounts and the 30% off coupon, we paid $103. We also got $80 in Too bucks to use at a later date. I felt like we stole a few items from them! The sales girl said they are really struggling because of low sales and doing what they can to bring in customers. I really do not see how they are making much money at these prices! These sales made everything 80% off!!
As much as I hate Toys R Us, I love a good deal more! They have wii games on sale buy 1 get $20 off a 2nd one. That is the best deal I ahve seen on wii games! Good on line too!!!
Here are some new hot wii games that are available also from Amazon......

Well, Debbie at Suburb Sanity did this celebrity look alike thing. Hers were so funny that I almost peed in my pants. I decided to play along. While I am very upset to be matched closest with Roseanne, I at least matched with all women... unlike Debbie!
I already knew I was a dead ringer for Paris Hilton. I just wish I had a few hotels!!
Ok... I went back to do another one. They first photo I tried would not load so I tried yet another. I swear Debbie did something to it because this time this is what I got......
.... all MEN!!!!
BUT... at least Tom Cruise! No, not just any Tom Cruise picture... the one with the beard! What is up with that?
Wait..... I think I figured it out. This 2nd picture was on the beach with no makeup. Apparently, I look like a bearded Tom Cruise with no make up but like Paris Hilton with makeup.
Damn if I am ever leaving this house without make up again!!!
