In the market for graduation and Father’s Day gifts? Here are some good and inexpensive ideas and deals I found:

**Put together a care package of toiletries and pantry staples for a graduate moving to college or off on their own.

**Consider getting an Entertainment Book and enjoy the restaurants and points of interest in your neck of the woods with the dads in your life. It also sounds like a great idea for a graduation gift especially if your grad is moving to a new city. What a great way for them to get the lay of the land on a budget! I share more details on the sale here.

**Sunday Old Navy will have ALL men’s items 50% off. Great time to do some shopping for the men you know and love. Don’t forget to check OldNavyWeekly every week for some huge coupons. Thanks to Surviving the Store’s tweet on Sunday night, I got a head’s up on where to find a $50 off a $100 purchase coupon. I had a fun time shopping this week. I’m hoping to have the same luck throughout the summer and stock up on kid’s clothes for the future.

**Order business cards for graduates from Vista Print. There are tons of designs to choose from, and you can list their twitter ID, cell phone #s, emails, and all those other hip, electronic things that these whipper snappers excel at. See more details here.

**Sign up for BocaJave coffee and get 4 bags of their gourmet coffees for $4.95 plus free shipping. Make sure you read all the details of your agreement as there is some fine print.

**And, don’t forget your coupons! I found out that my local Walmart sells the Sunday paper for a buck! It’s normal price is $1.75 – almost twice what I paid at Walmart. You know that what’s going to be a regular stop of mine on Sunday afternoons. Check Taylortown Preview for the scoop on what coupons will be available this weekend. You can also sign up with different manufacturers to receive free samples, recipes, and access to printable coupons. Check out Kraft and Luvs and be sure to browse the offerings at

    Hey Jessica…great posting! I wanted to mention something about the Vista Print website. There have been a few "call for action" stories on the news lately about the website charging fees to your credit card after placing an order due to some fine print on the order form. I can't remember the exact problem but I'm searching for the story and will send it off to you when I locate it. I don't know if it was just a one time thing or if there are other complaints on file with the BBB but I'll see what I can find. Have you used them before?

    Hey Wendy! How are you?

    Thanks for letting me know. I would love to read that article. I have used Vista several times in the past and have never had a problem. So, I would love to follow up with this. Thanks!

    If you read carefully when checking out you won't have a problem with V.P. They like to offer you "extras" when you are checking out ..and that's where this free trial offer turns into a charge .

    6/7 CVS is looking to be great !
    Lots of half back in ECBs and coupon matchups to make them money makers. Check out my post at for CVS, Walgreens and Target deals too !
    I have lots of coupn match up links for you as well.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
