Hot Deals for The Week Ahead

Posted By Jessica Fisher On April 18, 2009 @ 5:03 pm In Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Here are some things to think about as you consider how to spend that hard-earned cash this week:

* Check Taylortown Preview [4] to see if tomorrow’s coupons make it worth it for you to buy the paper.

* Easter items are drastically marked down by this point. I intend to get some plastic eggs if there are any left. Ours didn’t make the move and I wasn’t about to pay full pop. The kids enjoyed finding Resurrection Eggs, instead. But, as next year all six may want to be in on the hunt, I think I’m going to need more than 2-3 dozen.

* As you peruse the Spring clearance, look for items that can be used for other holidays besides Easter. For example, pastel plates and napkins look good anytime.

* Check out the giveaways that I’m hosting. They all end tonight at midnight. Pop over here [5] to enter for your chance to win 8th Continent Soymilk, Land O’Lakes Butter, and a very cute apron from ViViMiMo.

* With Earth Day (formerly known as Arbor Day) this week, a number of businesses will be featuring deals and freebies. For example, Fresh and Easy Markets [6] will be giving away free, reusable shopping bags [7] with every $10 purchase. (Thanks, Lime.com!) And don’t forget to come back next week as I will be featuring FOUR eco-friendly giveaways.

*Mother’s Day is quickly approaching. Plan ahead so that you can be economical in how you bless the moms in your life. Sign up for Ebates [8] and do your online shopping through their portal in order to get cash back on everything you buy. The rebates are even good on eBay purchases. Very cool!

* Barbecue season is just around the corner. Keep your eyes open for coupons and stock up sales on mustard, barbecue sauce, and salad dressings. Freebies4Mom [9] has a great list [10] of things that she never pays for. I remember reading it last year and then seeing it happen in my own pantry when I had up to 6 bottles of free BBQ sauce at a time. We just opened the last bottle, so I’ll be scoping out the deals.
