It's thesavedquarter.com. The Holidays category has my posts about my holiday gift plans. I just did a Groupon combined with coupon code to get $200 in photobooks for $25. That rocked my socks - three copies of my daughter's first year to give to DH, my parents, and MIL. Along with some Vistaprints freebies and a few other low cost goodies, they're about done.
My daughter is getting a homemade doll gear set - mini quilt, diaper bag, matching dress for her and her doll, and apron, all made from fabric from my stash. I found a wooden doll cradle at the thrift store for $3.99 and it will complete the gift. I spent under $5.00 total for her gift and I think she's going to love it!
My son is getting a Transformer-style robot-car. He is going to LOVE it! I got free Kohl's Cash for buying a certain amount at the grocery store, which I would have bought groceries anyway. That deal was awesome, too! It was on 75% off clearance and my free coupons paid the remaining 25%!
Both are getting books that I'm getting from amazon.com with Swagbucks, and clothes bought on after-season clearance last year. I still have to come up with something they need...
My mother in law gives the gift of a class for the kids. It's fantastic! Both got swim lessons for their birthdays, and little gym classes for Christmas (indoors for cooler months.) We get out of the house, the kids get the activity and skills, and no clutter. Gotta love it!
