Price Matching

There are more stores that are starting to offer price matching. It might take a little more effort for you to search the ads and then use them at the store but doing so will save you money! Wal-mart has always done price matching. When I price match at Wal-mart, I take my other store ads with the product and price circled and I check out, I give the cashier the items and the ad(s). It's pretty easy. In Target's weekly ad, they advertised that they price-match. My understanding is that you purchase your items at "Target price" and then go to customer service with your ad and your Target receipt and they will adjust your purchase price. Best Buy also does price matching (which is great when you are trying to make a "big" purchase).

Note: when price matching you have to buy the item listed in the ad (correct brand and size). The store matches the ad price. Most stores do not honor % off, buy X and get $ off your purchase, or buy X and get X free.

Are there other stores where you do price matching?

All about YOU

I believe that we should "document" our lives...for our family, for our children, for future generations, for ourselves. Years ago, I kept a prayer journal where I wrote down the different things that were taking place in my life and my daily prayers. I love reading it now...especially to see how I've changed and how God has worked in my life. When my grandparents were still living, they wrote down stories, events, feelings, etc about themselves. Although I spent lots of time with my grandparents, I learned so much more about them when I read the things they wrote. Now, I scrapbook and blog for my family. It's fun to look at and read now, and I know we will continue to enjoy our "life documentation" in the years to come.

Becky Higgins, from Creating Keepsakes, has posted "Life Story Pages" that you can print off her blog. She has one for teenagers and one for adults. These are FREE to print. Take the time to print these and fill them out. You will enjoy reading them and your family/kids will enjoy reading them in the future. If you have teenagers, really encourage them to fill them out. We all have a story to tell!

Back to School Time

Many stores are advertising specials for Back to School. If you get the Sunday paper (which is worth it just for the coupons), make sure you look through the ads to check out the back to school specials. Many things are discounted and some things are FREE.

This best deal this week is at Staples. Purchase any backpack at Staples, have them scan your Staples Reward card, and in October you'll get your full purchase price back in Staples Rewards (which is like store credit to be used in staples). We are always needing printer paper, ink cartridge and random office supplies so this is a great deal for us! (the backpacks at Staples are really nice) If you don't have a Staples Reward card, go here to sign up (it's free). If you don't have time to get out and shop, you can do this deal online.

I'm Back!

It's been a while since I've posted....we've been on vacation! We went to Camp Jellystone in Waller, TX and had a great time! If you've never heard of it, go check out their website. Our family really enjoyed it...there were lots of different activities throughout the day. We stayed in a cabin and enjoyed it so much more than a hotel room! We went to Sea World a couple of years ago and the kids said they enjoyed Camp Jellystone more! If you decide you want to check it out yourself, a couple of things: 1) Sign up for the Club Yogi Rewards before you go. You get points on all "Yogi" purchases...that includes cabin rentals, RV hookups, etc. 2) It is less crowded to go during the week (vs. the weekend). And it's less crowded during the school year (vs. the summer).
