Amazon-Black-Friday-deals-2014-best-bargains

Good morning! TGIF! How are you today? Only one more week until Black Friday but you’d think it was today the way all the big retailers are offering online deals. At midnight PST Amazon “Black Friday” sale officially started and earlier last night Walmart started price matching competitor’s Black Friday deals – online!

Some of the current deals you might want to check out:

I’m posting the best deals as I see them pop up. Make sure to visit the blog often to see the latest posts (often they sell out quickly) or follow me on Facebook here.

Family-Fun-Bullwinkles-Restaurant

Yesterday my kids and I spent the day with my parents  up in the Tukwila area – they had an 8-9 hour layover. We went to Bullwinkle’s Family Fun center – we had never been. Thanks to a Bullwinkle’s Groupon deal I feel like we got a bargain. My kids LOVED it. Then we went to IKEA – and let me tell you – IKEA has their holiday decorations out! I am not a big decorator, but I do enjoy the design style of IKEA and picked up some great deals on some fun holiday decorations.

Amazon-Black-Friday-Deals-Nov-21-deals-2014

Good morning!   Woke up early this morning to an inbox full of Black Friday deals and alerts. I love a good deal – but it’s starting earlier and earlier every year! The big news is that Amazon Black Friday deals start tomorrow, November 21. The deals will run for eight days (and then Cyber Monday starts) – with new deals rolling out every 10 minutes. If you shop Amazon you can expect a BUNCH of posts from me over the next two weeks. If you don’t love Amazon, be patient, the madness will be over before we know it.

Learning-Resources-50-off-sale-2014

The Amazon Gold Box deal of the day today is 50% off Learning Resources toys! Prices start around $10 and these highly rated toys are rarely discounted this much. In fact, most of these toys are the best price they’ve ever been on Amazon.

24 Books of Christmas - Advent Calendar - Great idea for small kids. Each night read a different Christmas book together as a family.

Yesterday I shared my very favorite type of Advent calendar – the 24 books of Christmas Advent calendarI love this because it promotes literacy, encourages family reading time every night, can be done really frugally (pick up books at thrift stores and reuse books every year) and it celebrates Christmas every night with a related story. Check out my 24 books of Christmas Advent calendar here.

Roasted-Turkey-Rosemary-Garlic

Last night for dinner, I roasted a turkey, with sides of mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and green beans! It turned out delicious. I don’t do anything fancy. I rub it with olive oil, minced fresh garlic and diced rosemary. Then I put half an onion and a big bunch of fresh rosemary in the cavity. Roast at 325 for as long as the turkey experts say.  If it starts getting too brown on the top, I cover with tin foil. Use a meat thermometer to make sure it’s cooked all the way through. I had a 12-pounder and it took about 3-ish hours.  My mother-in-law is making the Thanksgiving dinner next week (I’m bringing my grandma’s rolls and these roasted root vegetables), so I wanted to make an early meal so we could have leftovers this busy weekend.

My favorite is the mashed potatoes – when I make them, I boil the peeled, whole garlic cloves with the diced potatoes! It helps infuse the flavor in the potatoes and they are softened so they mash right in at the end. I add butter, shredded parmesan and sour cream to my potatoes.

Cheese-Board-Albertsons-

I’m still accepting entries for the Albertsons Cheese Board giveaway – you could win an Albertsons cheese basket (valued around $100), plus I’m throwing in a $50 Albertsons gift card. Pretty sweet, huh? Get the details here

Good morning! How are you doing this morning? It warmed up a bit here in the Northwest – I was happy not to have to scrape my windshield this morning (with my Rite Aid Wellness card, ha!) when taking my son to school today.

Today I think I’m roasting a turkey, making mashed potatoes and maybe even some cranberry sauce. I got a great deal on a turkey from QFC last week and since we are going to my in-laws next week, I thought I’d make it up today. Then we have leftovers! If you think about it – turkey is one of the most frugal proteins you can buy – and you can do sooooo much with one turkey. After you roast it, you can use the carcass for broth and it makes some amazing turkey noodle soup (or countless other recipes) as leftovers.

Macys-Web_Busters-Sale

Yesterday Macy’s launched a VERY HOT sale – it’s supposedly a one-day sale and yesterday was the “preview” day, so you have one more day to shop. The BEST place to look is the Macy’s Web Busters page – they have all the VERY best deals on this pageBut yesterday I went through the sale and pulled out my very favorite deals. Amazing prices on kid’s coats – $16.99 (reg. $80!), clothing, kitchen items and more. See my list of favorite deals here.

Cheese-Board-Albertsons-

Last Friday I shared my favorite cheeses for a holiday cheese board, including a recipe for Baked Brie with apricot preserves (so good!). I’m partnering with Albertsons to give away a cheese basket (valued at around $100) and a $50 Albertsons gift card – if you send in a photo of your favorite cheese board. You can read more details here. And although it requires a little bit of extra effort than most giveaways – your odds are much better because we won’t see as many entries. :) I wouldn’t spend a lot – just make a simple cheese board with your favorite cheeses and send me a pic!

Good morning! How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

Best-turkey-ham-holiday-meal-deals

We have all sorts of exciting things happening around here this week. We are busy going through the Black Friday ads to find the best deals, offered online, so that we can save you time and money (and stress next week). We compiled a round-up of turkey, ham and prime rib prices at our local stores so you could pick the best deal for you.

I bought a turkey yesterday at QFC – for $0.69/lb it cost under $9! Turkey is such an affordable meat this time of year. I know some stores, like Fred Meyer, run a promotion for a FREE turkey when spend $150. People LOVE this promotion – but remember, it’s only a deal if you need the $150 in groceries. Don’t spend an extra $100 to save $10-15, you know?

QFC-stock-up-sale-2014

Yesterday I went to QFC and stocked up on canned tomatoes, canned vegetables, Campbell’s cooking soups and chicken broth. This sale is my favorite of the year! I love it because the prices are amazing without coupons, there are no limits (like a lot of stores do when they offer canned veggies so cheap) and the products on sale are core ingredients in a lot of my favorite slow cooker meals! This sale only lasts until tomorrow (Tuesday), so get into your local QFC and check it out! Check out my shopping trip here.

Bag-Of-Toys-Goodwill

I also brought the kids to Goodwill yesterday. We hadn’t been in bit and we found some fun deals. We found some of the bag-of-toys marked down 50% off ($3.50 – $4) and one bag was even $1.99 thanks to the tag sales. These bags can be very hit-or-miss, but if you look carefully before you buy, and you find them marked down, you can find some real deals!

For about $10 here is what we found in our grab bags:

  • Entire set of Frozen character figurines (with clothes!)
  • Imaginext hero people
  • Two working Zhu Zhu hamsters with armor shields
  • A full construction set – with mini trucks, cones and signs
  • Little people toys, books and cars (sending to my 1-yr-old nephew!)
  • Wooden memory/matching game
  • Hot Wheels
  • This Plan Toys My First Camera – so cool!
  • Plus more

I’m super picky – I go through them before the kids get to play with the items – and throw out anything that isn’t appropriate, is broken or is just junk (like Happy Meal toys). I also wipe down toys with Clorox wipes and we wash anything that is plush. The kids had lots of fun playing with these items yesterday!

I also found this CowboyStudio 30-Inch Photo Soft Box Light – 4 Chroma Key Backdrops for $3.99! I’ve been wanting one for my food photography, but didn’t want to pay $30+ for it! And I found a camera tripod for $1.99, some cute clothes for my kids and some great books. :) Did you find any secondhand deals this last weekend?

Cheese-Board-Albertsons-

Last Friday I shared my favorite cheeses for a holiday cheese board, including a recipe for Baked Brie with apricot preserves (so good!). I’m partnering with Albertsons to give away a cheese basket (valued at around $100) and a $50 Albertsons gift card – if you send in a photo of your favorite cheese board.

Rise and Shine November 14 – Toys R Us Black Friday ads, Ranger Rick magazine, ECR4Kids toys and more


Rise-Shine-Queen-Bee

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able.

Good morning! It’s Friday! We are two weeks from Thanksgiving and Black Friday. If you haven’t yet, I would draft out a menu for your Thanksgiving meal now and buy your ingredients in the next week – so you don’t have to head to the store the week of Thanksgiving. If you have a QFC (Kroger) store their current sale has some fantastic prices on meal staples. I went yesterday and stocked up on canned/diced tomatoes, canned corn, canned green beans – all $0.49 when purchased in groups of 10. I also picked up 32 oz cartons of free-range, organic chicken broth for $1.99 each (also part of buy 10, save $5 sale).

Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumpling Soup recipe - Creamy chicken soup with dumplings, peas and carrots

This Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumpling Soup is so good! This was originally sent in for Crock-tober a couple years ago, but we made it for dinner again last night, so I updated the post with new photos.

Toys-R-Us-Black-Friday-Ad-Preview-2014

Yesterday Toys R Us rolled out the Toys R Us Black Friday ad for 2014! I know many of you over on Facebook were not happy to see the sale starts on Thanksgiving at 5 p.m. – I agree, that’s crazy. I guarantee we’ll see a lot of these prices with online sales – Amazon often matches Toys R Us – and if we all opt to shop online (and not enter the stores on Thanksgiving), the retailers will adapt and stop being open, right? We can hope.   See all the current Black Friday ad scans here.

Good morning! How is it going this morning? It’s chilly here in Western Washington this morning – just 28 degrees at my place. What’s the weather like where you are at? 

I did some work yesterday trying to clean up the home page to make things easier to find. I added a Rise & Shine link in the top menu (between store deals and recipes) because I realized if you missed it in the morning – it was sort of hard to find. Remember you can subscribe to get Rise and Shine delivered by email, too – it comes immediately after I publish.  I also added a Black Friday icon to the right nav bar – so you can get all the ad scans with a quick click.

Good morning! I flew back from my conference in Colorado Springs last night! I’m so glad to be home. Got lots of snuggles with my sweet kiddos this morning. I went to the Platform conference – and there were some amazing speakers, authors, entrepreneurs and leaders there – I learned so much! My favorite was meeting (and learning from) Crystal from Money Saving Mom – she is such an amazing business women, mom and person! I don’t go to these conferences to network or rub shoulders with influential people – I go because I want to learn ways I can serve you better! You’re my people. My readers. My community. In the last year I‘ve felt like I’ve settled into a rut that lacks creativity and I’m ready to try some new things - like podcasting, online Q&As, online coupon classes and more. I’ll be talking more about that later (probably in early 2015) – but I will be asking you for your feedback on things you’d like to see more here at Queen Bee. Because this is as much your space as mine – and I don’t blog for myself – I do it for you and I want to make sure you’re finding my content valuable, interesting, and worthy of your time. I’m hoping for exciting things ahead, my friends. Thanks for joining me in this journey!
