Those of you who know me or follow our blog know that if deciding between shopping at Target with my two kids or a root canal…the stress free option would hands down be the root canal! I am always the mom with the kids climbing in and out of the shopping cart, yelling at them for running away from me, or in last weeks case the mom with the 5-year-old crying in the isle because I wouldn’t buy him some Captain America shield he JuSt HaD To HaVe! So again…a root canal with a little laughing gas to take the edge off would be my pick any day!
Thanks to my little shopping nightmares I have resorted to doing almost all of my Christmas shopping online. What I have learned is…you can get amazing deals with PrOmO CoDeS! When purchasing online, before you pay there is almost always an option to enter a promo code. In the past I left this blank not knowing where to find a code. Now with some hard work and a little luck I have saved tons of money and gotten free shipping on most of my purchases by simply typing the name of the store that I am purchasing from and the words promo code in a google search. Once you do that tons of links come up to sites that are dedicated to listing current and expired promo codes. For example…I ordered our Christmas cards from Shutterfly this year during their 50% off sale and earned free shipping due to the amount that I was purchasing. The card that I chose was a little more than I wanted to spend so I typed into google “Shutterfly promo code” and found a code that got me an extra 20% off what I was already getting! It was well worth the time and effort it took me to find the code!
As you get ready to do your last-minute shopping, remember…the stores need to get rid of their inventory just as much as you need to buy presents. Take the time to search for SaViNgS!
