Rise and Shine January 5 – Costco discounts, REI extra 25% off, Weight Watchers discount, Disney Plush sale, Orig3n Health and Beauty DNA test sale, more


Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Yesterday I stopped in to Costco after getting a tip from a friend that they had some great mark-downs. I found kids boots $9.97, Gerry winter jackets for kids $14, 2-pack of layering shirts for kids (like long underwear and flannel) for $4, cute kids fashion jackets for $6.97 and lots of other discounts! Things were going fast, but I was able to get a few things! They also have a new coupon book out! What deals have you been finding at Costco lately?
