I love getting paid to go to the mall!

As many of you know, my birthday is in November. I was a little bummed, then, when my birth date came and went and I didn’t get an email from The Club at the Galleria with info on my free $10 gift card.

Thankfully, a week after my birthday the email arrived. All I had to do was print it out, take it with ID to the Galleria Mall office during business hours, and claim my free gift card. Woo-Hoo! Ten dollars to use pretty much anywhere in the mall!

While the kids and I were there claiming my free cash, we also stopped by The Body Shop to redeem my coupon for a free item of the week. I’d received this coupon packet last week in a bag I’d purchased for $5; there are coupons for one free item a week for the six weeks leading up to Christmas. The free item this week ended up being a full-sized body butter! These retail for $20, and I love them!

So the kids and I left the Galleria with more “in our pockets” than we had when we came. That makes for a very happy mommy. And husband. 🙂

Since we’re blessed here in St. Louis to have Cotton Babies retail store, here’s a coupon you can use! Through the end of the year you can get a FREE bumGenius 4.0 One-Size or All-in-One diaper when you buy five.

Every month we’ve been enjoying fun little treats from QT. Sometimes it’s a bottled iced tea, others a pack of gum, and still others a huge muffin. Fun!

If you’d like to get in on the free QT action, join the QT Web Group and begin taking their short monthly surveys. After you complete a survey you’ll be able to print a coupon for the freebie of the month.

(As always, I suggest you use a “junk” email address for things such as this. Just be sure to check that address periodically!)


Always breaking or losing your glasses? Or perhaps that would describe your son or daughter… 🙂 I have some fabulous news for you!

With my checkup at the eye doctor recently, I was reminded to post about Zenni Optical for you all. Last year after my eye exam, I went online to Zenni with my most recent prescription in-hand. And I came away with two complete pair of glasses, with shipping, for under $35! I’m not kidding. This site is for real!

The hardest part about ordering with Zenni was picking out the frames.

The second hardest was measuring the distance between my two pupils.

The easiest part, by far, was paying the bill.

Shipping is a flat rate of $4.95 per order. Glasses start at $8 a pair!

It’s now been a year since I got my glasses. I usually wear contacts so they haven’t gotten a ton of use, but I wear them a bit every day. The glasses have held up fine, and it’s the first time in my life I’ve owned more than one pair in my current prescription!

And no, I didn’t have the heart to tell all this to my eye doctor recently. Alas, I’m afraid he wouldn’t rejoice at the amazing deal I’d gotten.

Hurray! Another free 8×10 photo collage from Walgreens! Use coupon code 8X10TREAT at checkout and choose to pick yours up at your local store to avoid shipping charges. Love it!
