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! Happy Halloween, my friends! I’m glad it’s Friday. How about you? Do you have any plans today or this weekend?
So the Target toy book came in the mail yesterday. My sweet girl (who just turned 4 this summer) was showing me some toys she wanted for Christmas and I told her to copy down the words she sees under the photos to make a list. I thought it would be good penmanship practice. Well she did exactly what I told her to do – her list starts with “TEMPORARY PRICE CUT” and then something about Hello Kitty. Too funny. At least it’s something on sale!!
Yesterday Amazon rolled out their official Amazon Black Friday page. If you’ve been following me, you know Amazon is my favorite online retailer, so you can expect heavy coverage of Amazon Black Friday deals again this year. I talk more about Amazon Black Friday, why I use the “Grandma Test” and I share a list of easy ways to keep up to date on the best deals here!
Last night I went through and did a preliminary update on the epic Best Amazon Toy Deals list. Let the fun begin. This list should be updated at least daily through Christmas, depending on what deals we’re finding!
Last night I shared my mom’s recipe for Homemade Popcorn Balls. She makes them every Halloween. It’s her thing. She sends them to my grandma, who loves them!
