I created a new Facebook Group yesterday specifically for Christmas deals and ideas. It’s different than a “page” and you can set it up to notify you when someone posts. This can be either a.) obnoxious or b.) helpful depending on what you’re looking for. My goal was to post lightning Amazon deals and other very timely offers that might get lost in the abyss of updates that is your Facebook newsfeed. The good news – the Facebook Group is completely voluntary, you can change your notifications at anytime or leave at anytime if it’s not a good fit! Head over to the Christmas deals and ideas and check it out, or not.
Tonight is the night I’ll pick the winner for the Great Wolf Lodge giveaway. Nearly 3,000 entries – yowza. I wish I could give you each a stay. Contest closes at 8 p.m. PST and I’ll try to get the winner’s information up on the blog as soon after that as I can!
New coupons for buy one, get one FREE Scotch Brite Botanical Disinfecting Wipes (up to $2.60).
There is a coupon for $0.75/1 Smucker’s toppings (like caramel or chocolate) you can use this at Safeway where they are $2 and pay only $1.25. I also hear that Dollar Tree stores have smaller jars for $1, making them only $0.25.
Did you see that coupon for $0.50 off any POM Pomegranate?

RECIPES, MEAL PLANNING, GROCERY MATCH-UPS
We should have the unadvertised deal list for Albertsons doublers up later this morning! Until then, you can get lost in the massive Albertsons list of deals from the ad.
Don’t forget the fantastic deals over at QFC this week. I think I’m going to have to make another trip!
And time is running out if you want to order your bacon, ham or beef from Zaycon. I will officially be the best mother ever (according to my kids and probably husband, too) when I bring home the bacon next Wednesday. Ha! We haven’t had bacon in ages. If 30 pounds is too much, split the box with a friend or neighbor.
I posted yesterday about freezing peppers. If anything I think the photos are fun to look at.
