If you’re like me, Cyber Monday and free shipping help me keep my sanity during the holiday hustle at retail shops. The thought of battling the masses is mind numbing, especially when you can stay at home, have items shipped to your door and still save money! Saving and sanity, sounds too good to be true, right? Well, I recently learned that if I’d have kept that humbug attitude, I would’ve missed out some great savings and some free relaxation! Turns out my trip to Walmart was worth it in more ways than one!

First things first, when I shop at a retail store I’m efficient and frugal. To me, buying in bulk saves me from unneeded trips to the store and helps keep a little holiday jingle in my pocket. Not to mention, preparing for the influx of family makes buying in bulk a necessity! So, I ventured out to tackle my shopping needs when what to my wondering eyes should appear but an awesome opportunity to save money, buy in bulk and be rewarded with some free, relaxing entertainment!

I got my A&W®, 7UP®, Canada Dry®, Sunkist®, Sun Drop®, RC Cola®, Squirt® at my local Walmart for only $1.00! Buying in bulk and saving money, yep, can check that off the list! But wait, there’s more! By buying in bulk and purchasing at least (10) 2- liters or (5) 0.5L 6packs, I received a $5 movie credit at VUDU. This VUDU offer was so simple, just take a picture of your receipt with the qualifying purchases, create an account at VUDU by going here and submit the photo for a $5 credit! Easy peasy!

Rootbeer cupcakes

Then again, it wouldn’t be the season if there wasn’t some Grinchy intervention. It seems inevitable that my shopping list always excludes the one pertinent ingredient for my favorite cupcakes. This is the way to save the day. Did you know the A&W® Root Beer can save the day and create a fantastic treat for you and yours this holiday season? All that you need to do is pour your cake mix in a bowl and pour in the 1 1/2 cups of A&W® Root Beer. I suggest combining the ingredients until well blended. Then add them into a lined cupcake tin and bake according to the directions of your cake mix package.

DIY Woopsie Witch

Woopsie WitchDIY Woopsie Witch

Have some fun this Halloween with a Woopsie Witch of your own!  She’s easy to make, especially if you buy pre-made boots.  With the exception of the stockings, you probably have everything you need to make her, around your house.  I bought some cute witch boots at a craft store that was having a big Fall sale so I assumed they were on sale (Halloween is Fall, right?!).  So I get home and realize that I paid full price for them ($20) and the store was an hour away.  Being the thrifty (aka cheap) person I am, I opted to take a few hours and make the boots myself.  I’ll include the entire step-by-step for my fellow frugal friends but if you find some boots that you’d rather use, this craft will take no time at all. Continue reading
