Frugal Friday- Sale stuff you probably already know

 I am not feeling quite worthy of passing on frugal tips when I had throw away 30% of my fridge food that I have somehow let go bad. Some seriously scary stuff in there. And I am feeling all bad cause of the whole starving kids in China thing. That sounds quite flippant, but seriously, why am I wasting food?

So instead of coming up with a brilliant tip for you, I am just going to let you know about some things you may or may not already know about. Sorry if this yields you no new information, but the hubby traveled this week and my kids gave me a little run for my money tonight. And there is no wine in the house. So I am all tapped out on brilliant ideas. Except sometimes putting the kids down a half hour early is just what needs to happen so you don’t end the night screaming all of your sentences.

  • Oprah and Snapfish have some dealio going where you get a free 8×11 photo book. Which is a pretty good dealio. I have officially boycotted Oprah this year cause of the whole weird Eckhart Tolle nonsense, but I figure I can still score a free photo book with a clear conscience. I am bummed I missed the Jennifer Aniston thing too, but staying strong. Here is the link, but you only have until the end of Friday so hurry up.
  • Walgreens is putting out another $5 off $20 coupon for Friday and Saturday. Your total has to be $20 after coupons so that stinks a bit, but maybe you can get the 2 free after rebate items if you haven’t already. Some mascara and moisturizer never hurt anybody. The link for the coupon is here.
  • Old Navy, Gap and Banana Republic is having a friends and family sale with 30% off in their stores and outlet stores. And they will donate 5% of your purchase to Boys and Girls Club of America. I have tried linking to their coupon on the web, but it doesn’t seem to be working. So if you want the coupon, let me know in the comments and I will email you one. It is good through Sunday the 16th. Consider yourself friend or family. You should know my family is a bit crazy, so you might want to lean towards friend.
