We saved up all of our points that we earn through our bank with the check card and used it to buy christmas presents so no money out of our pocket. YEAH!!

Angie S said...

Angie S. at lvn777@charter.net I am saving money by learning couponing, i'm so new to this and loving everything about it.

Julie said...

I started saving for this christmas last January, when I stocked up on holiday bubble bath & body butters at 80% off. I am so happy now to go to my "storeroom/closest" and pull out cheap gifts!

Kathleen said...

Oh wow! I am in love with Burt's Bees, and this would be so great to win. I'd be tempted to keep it myself though.

I've been saving money by making a lot of gifts. I sewed some aprons for my niece and goddaughter, and am making food baskets for my in-laws. It's fun to do too!

erin said...

I love Burt's Bees. We had a clothing swap with friends. It's so great to have all new items AND to get rid of clothes that were in a bag at the bottom of my closet. This is Erin J.

What an awesome gift! We saved $ this year by shopping the sales & using coupons. As I was wrapping my DS's gifts, I couldn't believe the $ saved by buying on sale and using coupons!!

We don't give gifts. In years past we have just planned a fun family event that doesn't cost much if anything. The memory lasts so much longer than a gift and everybody loves the time together.

I love your site--it's the first one I check in the morning. I have been saving this year with coupons(I just started doing it a few months and I'm amazed at how much you can save with a little extra effort) and buying online with free shipping.

Rebecca said...

This is a great give-away! I've been clipping more coupons than ever, and buy things only when I have a coupon, and have been thinking out of the box when it comes to creative and cheap, but thoughtful gifts! :-)

We've taken advantage of Walmart price matching. Instead of travleing all around town to get great deals we bring the competitors' ads to Walmart and get even better deals. We are never restricted by the ads minimum purchase requirements or limits on quantities.

We've been saving by only having stockings this year.

realwomenforsarah said...

Every Christmas I usually get a few Gift cards for places I don't usually shop at (like Pier one, Bath and body etc.) so I save those cards and use on the following Christmas to buy presents. I was able to mark 4 people off my list by using gift cards. -Maggie C.

Angela B said...

Oh...Burts Bees!

We are buying very few Christmas presents. Our children honestly couldn't think of anything they really wanted...they even had difficulty thinking of anything when the grandparents asked! I have been using my coupons at Walgreens to cut our "household" needs and I am purchasing groceries through a food co-op and avoiding the grocery store. I spend less money by NOT going to the store!

Liz in the Mist said...

Great giveaway! I have saved this Christmas by shopping for my family via catalog so I cut down on impulse buys!!

I just started coupon saving and now I'm hooked! Thanks Marcy C.

chadler said...

Since my husband is gone this holiday season, I am stuck shopping for our large family and parents. The one thing that has saved us is the amount of canning I did this summer. Everything for our parents was homemade - nothing purchased at the store! If I had to purchase an item to complete the craft, I used several 50% coupons.

I made a master plan this year early, so was able to watch for great deals and come in under budget! ~ Miriam T.

I've saved going through Amazon this year for my children's gifts. Gotta love that free shipping, no traffic, and no kids screaming (except mine of course). :)

I've only tried a few Burt's Bees products, but I love them! I'm using all kinds of different coupons from stores that get emailed to me and buying fewer gifts this year.

Proud Corpsman's Wife said...

Virginia H.

To save money I have been using promo codes and coupons.

Ashley H. said...

One way I've saved money is by trying to eat in rather than out, even after long days of shopping! It's so tempting to pick up a pizza or stop off for a quick bite out, but this can really add up. Coming home and cooking up something quick (eggs, spaghetti, tacos, even frozen pizza!) really saves money!

Victoria D. said...

Ooooh, my sister and I love Burt's Bees stuff! One way to save money on Christmas shopping is by shopping at outlets! There is a long strip of outlets by my house and we went there and picked up some good deals!

Kyle H. said...

A tip for money saving: Check out dealnews.com and amazon.com frequently for their deals of the day! Sometimes they are really awesome!

TinkBrown said...

I love Burts Bees!! I've saved by using all the cool coupon tips from all you lovely ladies. I always used to think 'all that work to save $0.50, big deal' Now I know better!!

I've saved by using "Rewards" dollars I've earned with a credit card and spending them at online retailers who are partners in the "Rewards" program. For gifts I couldn't get from one of those partners, I used ebates.com.

I'm saving this Christmas by making an xtra effort to search the online frugal sites for great deals. this really pays off

Anonymous said...

I bought things at Goodwill that were new, but were just leftovers from Target. This allowed me to only spend a little over $100 for all my gifts for extended family and in-laws. My husband and I aren't exchanging this year, but wanted to give more to those less fortunate instead of getting each other something we don't really need.

I've been saving by checking the ads like crazy. So far, I've been pretty good at buying things when they have been at their cheapest. But the few that I've found online cheaper, I just go and return the purchased one, and just order the cheaper one.

For this holiday season I saved by planning my Christmas list prior to "Black Friday" and then buying almost everything on that day. We saved at least 25% if not, much more, on all of our christmas presents!! We also used our credit card points to buy gift cards for people who we knew would like them.

I did all my Christmas shopping on Amazon.com. Most of it was on Black Friday. One thing was a gold box deal, so i had to wait until five, so i saved some items from the transaction to make sure i could get it for free shipping still. Then it needed batteries, but there is a deal at Amazon that if you spend $39, you get ten dollars off. For the same price as if i had bought them from target, i also got two chargers, because this thing is really going to drain batteries and takes so many that rechargeable was the only way to go. So i save money in the long run than if i had bought alkalines!

Presents for six people, a birthday present, and a gift exchange i went to cost about $100 total. I'm so excited.

Which enabled me and my husband to each spend $50 on each other.

I've been couponing and getting little gifts at CVS and Walgreens with Extra Care Bucks and Register Rewards. I also used frugal website tips to get two Cranium games for $4. Thanks for all of your help with that! Love Burt's Bees; wonderful gift . . .

What an awesome giveaway! One way that we're saving is by sending Christmas postcards instead of letters. We used to spend about $100, including stamps. This year we're spending about $40. Yay!

I've been wanting to try Burts Bees products. I use the internet to search for coupon codes before I buy anything.

I am still very new to the coupon world, the past few months I have had a good friend that has been "coaching" me how everything works. Things have been really tight this year so it has really helped. I hope everyone has a great holiday!!!

We saved money this year by putting a spending limit for each person and we stuck to it. I am done shopping, everything is wrapped and shipped. Now to relax this holiday just me and my hubby with no traveling.

Burts Bees is my favorite! I am absolutely naked without a tube of their lip balm in my pocket. ...I've learned to sew and have made several gifts this year. Frugal and fun!

I like to combine coupons with all those wonderful beer and wine rebates we have over the holidays. Lucky for me, my state offers the rebates with no alcohol purchase necessary so I am able to take advantage of some great deals!

Oh I love burts bees!

The biggest thing I have done to save this year is made homemade cards. Christmas cards seem to get more and more expensive each year. Its ridiculous!

Lori said...

The biggest thing I have done to save this holiday season is to subscribe to the daily paper for ads and coupons and to read tons of money saving blogs like this one!!

marla said...

We have learned that the most expensive item is not always the best. We shop wayyyyy more carefully than we used to.

How awesome! Please enter me.
One way I've saved this holiday season is by utilizing the dollar store for a couple of my friends. I'm giving them a gift they can keep and hopefully will always love, but it was only about three dollars for each of them!

I love Burts Bees products! It doesn't make my eczema scream when I use it! The baby line is my fav. I take in the local adds to walmart and have them meet the price. Saves me driving around! With six kids six and under this helps!
