Rise and Shine October 31 – Happy Halloween (free candy!), Subscribe and Save deals, Dollar General Black Friday ad, Blanket Scarf, travel coffee mugs, iPhone lenses, 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! How are you today? Happy Halloween! Did you see the deal I posted this morning for FREE candy? It’s the BEST deal you’ll find on candy all year.


How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun like a carnival, pumpkin patch, football, Halloween party? Tell me about it! We did a little bit of everything this weekend. On Friday we went to a fall carnival with my cousin and her kiddos at a local elementary school – so much fun for the kids to play games and win treats. On Saturday we did some housekeeping and went out to dinner at a new restaurant (thanks to a Groupon). And yesterday we watched a LOT of football (yay!) and carved pumpkins. It was a nice weekend of family together time and hanging around the house.

There is a LOT going on today because it’s the last day of the month, a Monday AND a holiday. So many ways to save today. . . .


Yesterday I updated my BIG list of the best Amazon Subscribe and Save Deals.  I find this is a great way to buy groceries, health items, diapers, cleaning products, household items and other consumable products. I found about 70 deals, which can all be found here.


Target has an EXTRA 20% off these select toys when you use code KIDSGIFTS at checkout. Plus they have FREE shipping on all orders right now. I did some comparisons to Amazon prices and found that Target prices are definitely stronger on toys right now with the 20% off coupon. Plus Target has a great board game promo – buy 2, get 1 free – that can be combined with the 20% off coupon! Here are some of my favorite toy deals.


The latest Black Friday ad to be released is the Dollar General Black Friday ad! See the LATEST leaked Black Friday ads here and tips for making the most of the savings. I’ll be doing my round-ups and of course covering Black Friday as best as I can – but this is a great resource, too! I have also put a banner in my right side bar, so you can always check for the newest Black Friday info!

If you go trick-or-treating tonight – BEE safe and have fun. 🙂
