Shopping outside your comfort zone....

First, thanks to everyone for your awesome support and encouragement to get this blog off the ground! An even bigger thank you to the influx of ideas, coupons and info sharing.. I am am working on a way to link those to this blog quickly and efficiently... obviously have not gotten there yet!
Today I found myself a whopping 20 miles away from home looking at father's day and birthday gifts. It was so much fun to shop out of my comfort zone!!! You know what I mean, when you are so used to the same Target, Walmart, Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx and the like. The cool thing about these stores is that the merchandise is always different! Don't be afraid to drive a little out of the way to get a better selection, or at the very least, a little different selection than you are used too!

Diva Deals:

Locally: Albertsons is running a weekly circular with clipable coupons. Among the deals, you can find Freschetta pizzas 2 for $7 and Koolaid juicer 6 packs for 69 cents! I spent $39 o approximately $68 worth of groceries!

In the mood for a movie???? Redbox is the place to hit... Use BREAKROOM (thanks MArci!) the first time you enter your email information. This code is good once for each credit/debit card you have. Once you use that code, try DVDONME, again good once each with each card you use. Finally, try DVDATWAG at Redbox at Walgreen's locations! You will be watching movies for free all summer long!

If you are still looking for Father's day gifts and are feeling adventurous.... head down to Harry Hines to Odyssey Watches off of i-35.. They carry a massive selections of men's, women's and kids watches for $4-10 each. The popular fossil "jelly" watches are in stock in about every color!

So step out of that comfort zone, hit a new location of a familiar store and treat yourself to a least a free movie rental!
