Did You Order Your Child's School Pictures?

Just a reminder, if you ordered your child's school pictures this past fall, you may have gotten a $20 credit to use online at Shutterfly.  I got a certificate in both of my kiddos packets!  Use it before you lose it, because the offer expires January 31st!  I've never used Shutterfly's service, so we'll see how it holds up!

I was able to use both $20 credits, but I had to do two separate checkouts for the discount to apply.  Each order totalled $2.64 after Tax and Shipping.  So, I can look forward to receiving a total of 4-8x10s, 4-5x7s, and 40-Wallets for the incredibly low price of $5.28!  Plus, I earned 50-free 4x6 prints for signing up with Shutterfly as a new customer!

The Case of The Missing Sale Ads

Just a quick post to ask if anyone else has noticed a lot of missing sale ads in the Sunday papers?  It's been weeks since I picked up a Sunday paper and found all of our local sale ads.  I always expect missing coupons and inserts, but I know the papers have had all of the sale ads in the past!  Yeah, I know I can view the ads online, but I guess I'm old fashioned.  I just need to actually flip the pages and circle things as I go.

Kroger: 1/8 Change for Change

Head over to Zeal for a Deal for this week's Change for a Change at Kroger!  Have I mentioned how much I love this weekly post?  I don't buy the items each and every week, but I am inspired to DO more giving with each and every post.  This week she has a really great and inspriational message to go along with her $3 matchup.  Just last week a wise woman said to me, "I know people are hungry at Easter, too."  So, if you are in the habit of donating to a food bank, a big ol' THANKYOU, and if you haven't gotten into the habit, well there's no time like the present!

While you're there, check out another good post with a list of printable coupons for non-perishable items that make great donation items!  I usually only print coupons I think I will definitely use.  And I do miss out sometimes.  But, if I print it and don't redeem it, I've just tossed about 10-cents into the trash can (for every three coupons you toss).

Change for a Change Items for Kroger Sale 1/8-1/14

I love this weekly Change for a Change, but I'd pass on those Chef Boyardees and buy Chicken Noodle or Tomato soup at Sureway where it's 2/$1 until Tuesday (1/10).  Without a coupon, you can get 6 cans for 3-bucks!  Plus, there are a few good coupons floating around for Campbell's right now!
