That is A LOT of stuff that I would be paying full-price for at Walmart for only 7 bucks, shipped!

I used a code that sent me in the mail to get 20% off, but if you use Order10, I'll not only get a referral credit for you, but you'll get 15% off your order. If you refer other friends or family who place an order, you'll get $10 credit for each one who places an order. Another nice perk.

Hope this helps with some of your normal household expenses!

Here's another good deal from Groupon when you search under the Oklahoma City Deals: Today only, get $70 of meals from the for $35. This is a nationwide website, so you don't have to live near Oklahoma City to take advantage. Plus, the $70 gift certificate can be used toward the cost of food and shipping as well.

Here's where the deal gets even sweeter: Use code MMTR at checkout to get an additional 8% off of your first-time order, plus go to and search for once you've received your gift certificate code from Groupon to earn an additional 6% off! To maximize the deal even more, be sure to look under the "special deals" section of the website to take advantage of some of their best prices. Combining all of these deals could make for a pretty sweet deal, especially if you've already got Groupon dollars in your account that you can use. I just purchased two of these, and I'm planning to use them toward some salmon and steaks- expensive meats that I will get for free (including shipping!) by using my Groupon dollars.

I love taking advantage of deals like these to stretch my grocery budget!

Great Deal at Plum District: 2 games for $2

Have you heard of Plum District ? It's a site similar to Groupon and bTrendie that I'm finding to have really great deals! Check out this deal I found today on Plum District:

For the next couple days, Plum District is offering a deal on two computer game downloads from Big Fish Games for $7 (regular price $14). But if you use the code welcome in the promotions box at checkout, you'll get $5 off your first purchase, making your final cost only $2! [I found this deal when I searched under the city of Tulsa].

I just did this deal, and they immediately post a gift code in your Plum District account so that you can go directly to the Big Fish Games site and purchase any two games! We're snagging a great Dora the Explorer game and another fun animal rescue game that I know my preschoolers will love. All the games ad-free, and they have dozens of games for PC, Mac, iPhone, and iPad- pretty sweet deal for $2.

So if you're like me and could use a little something new to keep kids happy and engaged during these HOT last few weeks of summer, this just might be your ticket. Enjoy!

HOT!! Incredible diaper deals on Amazon!

Wow- if you've got a baby/ toddler in diapers, Amazon has a sweet, sweet, sweet diaper deal you don't want to miss:

In the August and September issues of Parents and Parenting the Early Years magazines, there are cardstock Amazon advertisements that have personalized 20% off diapers codes. I know many of you are like me and get these magazines free from previous magazine deals! You can stack up to three of these codes to get really, really cheap diapers on Amazon when you combine it with Amazon's Subscribe and Save option, which gives you an additional 30% off and free shipping!

Check out two deal scenarios I came up with using two magazine coupon codes, Subscribe and Save 30% discount, and one $5 Amazon gift card I had earned through Swagbucks. This is what my checkout page looked like for a huge box of 68 Pamper's training pants:

And this is what my checkout page looked like for an even larger box of 88 training pants:

After looking at both possibilities, I decided to spend $1.75 or so more to get the larger box. What a fantastic deal!! There are all sizes and kinds of diapers available, so if you need diapers of any type, don't miss this one. Here's the play-by-play, with many thanks to Money Saving Mom:

• Go to the Amazon Baby Page and click on the “Special Offer” link at the top to see all products which qualify for the 30% off discount. (Be sure to check the Amazon Coupon Page and refresh a few times to see if there’s any applicable coupons. Click to add any applicable coupons to your account and they'll automatically be applied at checkout.)

• Choose your desired diapers.

• Add them to your cart using the Subscribe & Save feature and they should show up at 30% off plus free shipping.

• Add the 20% off coupon codes from the August or September 2010 Parents or Parenting the Early Years magazines to the coupon code box. It looks like you may be able to use at least three different codes in one order!

• Once your order has shipped or you receive your order, don’t forget to log in and cancel your subscription — unless you’d like to continue receiving diapers at the discounted rate.

This will literally take you 3 minutes and will get you the best diaper deal I've seen in a long, long time! Woot, woot!
