I thought I'd tell you about one of my favorite websites called Ebates. I do a lot of online shopping since I work all day and don't always have time to go to the store. The cool thing about Ebates is that you get cash back on your online purchases just by clicking through their site! They've got pretty much every site you could possibly want to buy from -- Nordstrom, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Circuit City, Dell Sephora, Expedia, Netflix, Home Depot, Pottery Barn, Red Envelope, Shutterfly, etc, etc, etc. The list goes on and on. The amount of cashback varies from 1% up to 15% for each store, and sometimes there are additional coupons listed on their site to help save you money.

Here's how it works:
1. Join Ebates by clicking HERE
2. Then simply browse their listing of stores and click on the store link to shop and make your purchase
3. Wait for the cashback to appear in your account
4. Every 3 months they send you a check with all your cashback

You also get a $5 bonus when you make your first purchase after signing up. Pretty simple, and a great way to save some cash on things you were going to buy online anyway!

So the next time you go to buy something online, remember to click through Ebates to save some money!

Hidden Treasures at Kmart

I stopped by Kmart yesterday on my way home to buy some of their Max Factor makeup which is buy-one-get-one this week. I had buy-one-get-one coupons, which made it free -- yay! I don't usually wear Max Factor stuff, but I got a free lipfinity a while back that I liked. It comes with a color and then a clear moisturizing topcoat. I could take or leave the color but the moisturizing topcoat is seriously the bomb. Makes your lips super shiny and luscious. So I bought 2 and I'm gonna keep the topcoat and toss the color!

In my browsings, I happened upon some sweet clearance finds, namely some super-cute Martha Stewart picture frames. They were originally $17, marked down to $3.50. Sa-weet!

I also found some 4-inch pillar candles on clearance down to $2, which was perfect for my new rot-iron candlestick set I bought for my hearth. I also found some Robitussen on clearance for $2.50, which Kmart paid me to take after I used my $3 coupons on them.

All-in-all, some good treasure hunting at Kmart!

Monday Walgreens Escapade

Here are my Walgreens finds for yesterday. I always go on Mondays because the good deals sell out quickly. I even ran into Emily (aka, supermom) with Keidra and Ryder yesterday morning, which was so much fun. Much more fun than shopping by yourself! :)

I got everything pictured below for $17.80 out of pocket (I used last week's register rewards to pay for some of it), plus I got back $70 in register rewards. (This is what I like to call "rolling" your register rewards.) It was a good day!

Cold & Flu Season Supplies

I forgot to post my deals from last week.

All these items were free after rebate last week at Rite Aid. There were actually 30 items free after rebate -- all cold and flu medicines -- but I just bought the ones I thought I'd use or like to try.

I accidentally did something funny to the settings on my camera, and now they're all turning out grainy. ??? Standby while I work through the technical difficulties.
