Hot Deals for a Cool Christmas!

With Christmas just around the corner, I thought it’d be fun to put together an exchange of hot deals for a cool Christmas! Here’s what I have in mind:

Please join me in sharing any hot deals that you know of for toys, books, and other gifts, either online or in stores. It might be a sale that you have confirmed is taking place. It might be a coupon that you found online or in your mailbox. It might be a mail-in-rebate that you learned about recently. It might be the most reasonably priced product you’ve found when you’ve done your cost comparisons. Anything that might save us some money during our holiday shopping is acceptable (keep it clean, this is a family-friendly website)!

I have some basic guidelines for this information exchange:

1) Please only leave a link if you have written a "Hot Deals" post. Please mention my "Hot Deals for a Cool Christmas" in your post (you can grab the image/button from the top of this post) and link back to my master list here. I will delete any links to blogs that haven't posted a "Hot Deals" post.

2) When adding your post to Mr. Linky, link directly to your "Hot Deals" post, not to the front page of your blog. This makes browsing easier for everyone, especially when people browse around in the archives. For an explanation on how to do this, go here.

3) Enter a 3-4 word description of your post, in parentheses, after your name. Be descriptive, be specific, and BE BRIEF.

Thanks for participating! I can't wait to see what savings ideas you all come up with! Take your time, I'll leave this post up for a couple of days and then it'll still be on my sidebar if you want to continue to add ideas until Christmas!

I have been on the hunt for bargains, but can't seem to find any! The one and ONLY one I had, ended on Saturday and it was at CVS, I don't go there very often but they had a digital frame for $69.99!

This is a great idea! =) Thanks for keeping us posted on the deals that are out there. =)

And congrats on getting licensed. Even though I haven't been able to comment, I have been following your story avidly. Good luck in having children placed with you. This is an awesome journey for you to share with us. =)
