Shampoo. Hair accessories. Candy. Do you see any relationship between those three items? Well at this time of the year and on this list, they all look like stocking stuffers to me! ;) Now, of course, you have to know whether the person for whom you are shopping would appreciate any of those things…and I can’t imagine who wouldn’t! Of course, candy is a great stocking stuffer. But, I know that my 4 year old daughter who plays dress up and who can’t have enough bows and ribbons would love finding hair accessories in her stocking.

Black Friday Shopping Tips

Posted on November 27th, 2013 by Discount Debbie

 

It’s beginning to smell a lot like Thanksgiving! At our house, the turkey is brining (is that a word?) and sweet potatoes are baking in the oven. Yummy :)

But, I know that some of you are doing more than preparing for tomorrow night’s meal; you are preparing for Black Friday. If you plan to shop on Black Friday, you need to prepare. So, here are just a few tips to help you out through the madness that is Black Friday…or Grey Thursday…whichever!

1. Do Your Homework. If you are going Thursday night, you will need to do this either today or tomorrow before dinner. Go through the ads or websites where the Black Friday deals are posted to find the deals you want. Make sure you comparison shop beforehand. Get online or use one of the many apps out there to help you figure out what the best deal really is. You can get great deals on Black Friday. But, you can also just be paying regular price on some items. You won’t know unless you do the research.

2. Prioritize. Doing your homework means more than just circling or writing down what you want to buy. It means prioritizing. It will be crazy out there; you know that. So, what do you want most. Go for that item first.

3. Shop With Friends. Shopping with friends could make for a more enjoyable experience. But, it can also help you get more deals. If two or three items are high on your priority list in one particular store, you can split up and, therefore, have a better chance of not missing out on your deal. It’s like being in more than one place at once ;)

4. Bring Ads With You. Just in case there is any discrepancy at the register, the ad will be your (and the cashier’s) friend. It will make things less confusing for everyone.

5. Gift Receipts. If you are buying gifts, make sure you ask for gift receipts. It makes the return process so much easier for everybody.

And, beyond all that, have fun! Pick up some coffee, bundle up, make friends, tell funny stores and make it a memory! Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving!

How will you prepare for Black Friday?


Making Healthy Choices This Thanksgiving

Posted on November 26th, 2013 by Discount Debbie

Thanksgiving is traditionally the kickoff to the holiday season, the shopping frenzy (oh, I mean the shopping season) and the not-as-popular holiday weight gain. It also happens to be cold and flu season. And, do you know what one food item bears the greatest responsibility for tearing down our immune system? Sugar. So, if you’d prefer not to add on the pounds and you’d prefer not to get sick, there are choices you can make to increase your chances of staying healthy.

Sugar. Sugar is the biggest culprit when it comes to weight gain and to lowered immunity. You can’t help how other people make their foods. But, you can make some substitutions when you’re making your own. Honey, maple syrup and rapadura/sucanat are all unprocessed sweeteners that taste just as good in pies, cookies and anything else that calls for white processed sugar. I only use honey now for all our baked goods, desserts and even in my coffee every morning. I’d encourage you to use local, raw honey if you can get it.

Fats. Studies now tell us that the low-fat diet is not as healthy as it was once believed to be. It’s important to eat fats, good fats. Here’s more on why good fats are good for you and can help you lose weight. So, skip the margarine and “low-fat” options and use real butter, coconut oil and even lard! What you’ll find is that eating the real stuff–which tastes better, incidentally–makes you feel full sooner. So, you don’t need as much to feel satisfied.

Artificial Flavoring. As much as possible avoid “artificial flavoring.” What is that, anyway? It’s artificial. First, it’s not as good as the real thing. Use your own herbs and spices and real flavors created by using real food. Second, there are people who have adverse reactions to artificial flavorings. Last, some say that artificial flavorings are also responsible for weight gain.

 

There are no guarantees, though. If you sit next to someone who is hacking their lungs out on your flight, you might just get those germs. If you are eating very healthy but are not sleeping well and are stressed, you may still get sick and even gain weight. I say make it real. It tastes better and is better for you. And, it’s usually cheaper to make it on your own!

What healthy choices do you make during the holidays?


Thanksgiving Money Saving Tips

Posted on November 22nd, 2013 by Discount Debbie

 

Thanksgiving is many things to many people. But, if you have ever hosted Thanksgiving dinner in your home, you know that it is not cheap. So, here are a few tips to help cut some of the cost of hosting Thanksgiving in your home.

1. Turkey. Grocery stores often have amazing deals on turkey leading up to the big day. And, if you want to plan in advance, you can get even better deals the day after Thanksgiving. And, since you can freeze them for up to a year, you won’t have your turkey to worry about for next year’s big day.

Also, you know you will have leftovers, right? It’s a Thanksgiving given. So, there’s no need to buy too much turkey. Just buy enough for the number of people you are having over…unless you want to eat lots of leftovers :)

2. Decorations. Make your own decorations. There are lots of resources online and very simple ideas for those of us, like me, who are not naturally arts-n-crafts-inclined ;)

3. Potluck. Make your meal a potluck. People love to showcase their favorite foods and it’s a great way to save some money for you. You make the turkey, ham and your favorite dessert and allow others to bring sides and maybe extra dessert.

4. Leftovers. Plan on leftovers: soups, sandwiches, casseroles, pot pies. We are a big leftover home. So, I get excited about easy, money-saving meals to prepare after Thanksgiving.

 

These are just a few money-saving tips for the kickoff of the holiday season. What do you do to save money on Thanksgiving?

Come to think of it, you could just put them in your own ;) Whatever you decide, it can only help to get a few freebies at this time of the year!
