I hope you are all enjoying your Thanksgiving weekend, and shopping on Black Friday. I did not post any Black Friday deals because they all expired as quickly as I could have posted them. So, it would not have helped you at all and would have probably just made you mad when you saw the great deals here but when you got to the online stores, the deals were already gone. I will let you in on some Cyber Monday information though. All the stores that you like to shop in, go to their websites later on today. They are all posting Cyber Monday sales starting today. I guess it is their way of getting every single sale they possibly can get. All the regulars like Walmart, Kmart, Sears, JCPenney, Target, and others are all posting deals starting today versus tomorrow morning. So, go to your favorite store's website and check out all the deals they are offering for Cyber Monday (and Sunday) and make note of the starting times. Then, start shopping an hour before the sales start and get those items into your shopping cart. Try and check out at the time the sales start. This way all the items in your cart will be there when the sale starts. I found that a lot of stores sold out of items when those items were still in people's shopping carts (mine included) during Black Friday. If you want to get everything that is in your cart you will have to check out as fast as you can. All the stores will not hold things that are in your shopping cart. Their motto is "first with pay conquers the day". In other words, they don't know if the item you put in your cart is a sale. You might put it back. So, if there is someone at the checkout with payment, they will sell it to them immediately. And the customer with the item in their cart who hasn't paid for the item yet, has just lost out. It happened to me about 5 times during Black Friday online at Walmart.com. I actually have items sitting in my cart for stores just waiting for Cyber Monday (and Sunday). So, the minute sales start I can go check out and guarantee I will get those items. So, spend today checking out stores online and put things in your shopping cart that you want. Then, come back later today and tomorrow and get those items with confidence.
Until next time, Happy Shopping.

www.BlueFly.com is all about designer clothing for women and men, handbags, shoes, and accessories. The prices on this website are not exactly what I would call inexpensive, but these are designer clothes by big fashion names. The good news is that BlueFly.com can save you a lot of money on these clothes so you can afford to own some high fashion styles. Also, if you look at the Sale Department on the site, you can actually pick up some great clothes, shoes, and handbags at prices up to 75% off.
My favorite department on BlueFly.com has to be the handbags. The Prada handbags are very beautiful. The website has a good assortment of these handbags and prices start at $236. Another great brand is the Rebecca Minkoff handbags. They don't cost as much as Prada handbags (you can pick up one for under $100.) and the handbags go nicely with most outfits. If you are looking for a brand that offers a wide selection and beautiful quality, then you have to check out the Marc Jacobs handbags. BlueFly.com has a great selection and many colors to choose from. Prices for Marc Jacobs handbags start at $97. Don't forget to look in the Sale Department to get some even greater deals on a variety of designer handbags by many different designers.
There are always different sales going on at BlueFly.com. There are also discount codes on the website to save you even more money. The discount codes do not last very long, though. Some codes only last a few hours before changing to another code. So, you might want to check the website often to see any new discounts. With prices up to 75% off designer clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories, it's no wonder there is a buzz going on about www.BlueFly.com.

Well, my blog today is going to be none of the normal shopping goodies because I am sick as a dog. I am in bed with the flu. I have been there since Wednesday. I suggest everyone get a flu shot this season because this one is a doosie! I did want to comment on one thing that has nothing to do with shopping. This week, the news has been flooded with the rescue of the 33 Chilean miners. I was so moved this week seeing those men come out alive from that black underground tomb. It warmed my heart how so many countries came together to help rescue these men. I was also impressed that Americans went to Chile to help with the rescue. And a shout out to NASA for building the needed shock absorbers and inline wheels for the simple looking capsule that brought these men back to their families and friends. I am so glad I got to witness such a wonderful "mission accomplished"! Vive' Chile!
Until next time,
Happy Shopping & Stay Healthy!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of If The Shoe Doesnt Fit. All opinions are 100% mine.
I ran across a really neat website the other day called www.IfTheShoeDoesntFit.com. It's an auction site for new and gently used shoes. The website has men's, women's, and children's shoes. There are both casual and dress shoes available. The site promotes "recycling" shoes by reselling them versus tossing them in a landfill if you were to throw them out. To me, that is a great way to help the environment.
This site is easy to navigate, it's free to look and bid, and there is no membership required. You can definitely get some great shoe bargains for your entire family. There are a lot of gorgeous shoes for sale on the site at truly unbelievable bargain prices.
If you are looking to sell your shoes, it only costs $1.00 per listing. You get to post up to 8 photos per listing for free, and auto re-listing is free if your shoes don't sell the first time around. Another great thing is there are no closing fees and no hidden seller's fees. I don't know of any other auction sites that don't charge closing fees. So, that's a great deal! If you are new to listing and have never sold on an auction site before, there is an instructional video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v…. to help you, compliments of their company.
The other thing I love about this site is you can swap your shoes with other people. When you look at the listings it shows whether the item is for sale or for swap. These kind of listings are only $1.00 to list. With this kind of auction you bid shoes or whatever you are willing to swap.
If you think about it, you can make some good money part-time by selling all your unwanted shoes. You could even go to tag sales and yard sales to buy decent looking shoes and then resell them on If The Shoe Doesnt Fit. You could make that a part-time job for little out of pocket money. With the tough economy right now, this part-time business would be perfect for anyone looking to make some extra money.
Right now the website has some great coupons. The first coupon gives you 5 Free Listings when you use the code "SHOES". The second coupon gives you 2 Free Listings when you use the code "SOLES". You can use both coupons together for a total of 7 Free Listings. What a great way to get started selling or swapping your shoes online.
There are three ways to list on the site: traditional auctions, fixed price auctions, and swaps. You don't need a credit card or PayPal address to register. IfTheShoeDoesntFit.com is a really fun site where you can Sell, swap or shop for shoes. I'm sure you will enjoy this site as much as I do.

The main thing this company sells is long lasting designer type perfume oils. You can choose from over 450 different scents that come in a 1/2 dram (1/16 oz.=1/2 dram) bottles for only $2.00 each. Now I know that doesn't seem like a lot of product but oils are supposed to be used sparingly and a little scent goes a long way. But if you would like a bigger size, you can get any scent of the body oil in a 1 oz. size bottle for $27.00.
Another great thing ILoveBodyOils.com sells is about 75 different varieties of incense sticks for only $1.00 per pack. I think you get 20 sticks in a pack, so that's a great deal. They have all the usual incense scents but they also have a lot of unusual ones like Bubble Gum, Chocolate, and African Violet. The site also sells a few other items like bar soap, cocoa butter, and incense holders - all at affordable prices.
If you want to try a scent but don't know which one to try, the company will send you a free sample of body oil. You can choose from men's or women's scents. There is a list on the Free Samples page where you can pick a scent to try. You must send them a self addressed stamped envelope with 3 first class stamps to get your sample. Don't forget to include with it what scent you want to try. They limit 1 vial of body oil per address. You can also get a free sample pack of incense sticks as well. Just check on the Free Samples page about getting your free incense.
As you can see on the website, this is a simple, basic site that only sells a few items but the prices are good and the variety is excellent. http://www.ilovebodyoils.com/ is well worth a look.
Until next time, Happy Saving!
Get a free sample of Emergen-C (that you mix with water) Vitamin Drink in a new mystery flavor. You have to take a short survey from the manufacturer to get the sample, but it's quick. Limited to 1 per household and while supplies last.

I was searching on their site for vests http://clothing-and-accessories.become.com/womens-clothing/outerwear/vests, and every kind of vest I could think of was in the search results along with some great prices ( I found a Land's End vest for only $9.99, which was 66% off). On another page http://clothing-and-accessories.become.com/womens-clothing/tops I found some great women's shirts. The variety is great and there are major brands represented for really good prices. I was also looking for pants http://clothing-and-accessories.become.com/womens-clothing/bottoms/pants and I noticed this site has regular sizes, as well as full-figure sizes. The site has women's, men's, and children's sizes. http://www.become.com/ is a great site to find clothing discounts from a large selection of retailers.
This is also true for all the other departments on this site. It's also a great site if you don't want to surf the Internet all day. I love the fact that you can just go to one site and do a major search of so many stores with just one click. It saves you time and money. When you get a free minute, please check out this fantastic website.
Until next time, Happy Shopping.

As far as food goes, Benihana Japanese restaurant (one of my favorite) will give you a certificate for $30 Off your food bill during your birth month. Go to www.benihana.com and click on "The Chef's Table". That is where you can get your birthday certificate. Sign up for the Fudds Club at www.fuddruckers.com and get a free burger on your birthday compliments of Fuddruckers restaurant. If you've ever been to Moe's Southwest Grill then you know they have great food. On your birthday score a free burrito when you sign up for Moe's e-World at www.moes.fbmta.com. And finally, Red Robin restaurant will give you a free burger on your birthday when you join the Red Robin e-club online at www.redrobin.com.
After enjoying a free meal at one of the restaurants listed above why not get a free dessert to finish off your birthday. At Cold Stone Creamery, (one of my ultimate favorite ice cream shops) when you join the Birthday Club at www.coldstonecreamery.com you will get a free ice cream on your birthday. If you go to Cheesecake Factory on your birthday, let the server know it's your birthday when you order. At the end of your meal you will get serenaded with a birthday song and a free ice cream treat with a candle in it. At Baskin-Robbins join the Birthday Club to score a coupon for a free scoop of ice cream on your birthday along with a discount on an ice cream cake. You can also get other deals during the rest of the year when you join the club. Go to www.baskin-robbins.com to join. For another great freebie go in to your nearest Starbuck's and ask an employee for a Starbuck's card. When you get home register the card online. Then you will get a free beverage on your birthday every year and also accrue "stars" with every visit. When you accumulate enough stars you can get free merchandise.
Some other great birthday freebies come from local attractions. Many museums, zoos, amusement parks and cinemas offer free birthday specials. Call ahead to get free admission or concession freebies. Hollywood Video offers a free movie rental on your birthday. You need to have an account to get the free rental but everyone else listed on your account can get a free movie rental on their birthdays also. And finally, at www.Sephora.com when you sign up for the Beauty Insider and stop at the store on your birthday, you will get a free beauty makeover and pampering gift.
As you can see, there are many free items you can score on your birthday. As I keep finding more free items for your birthday, I will announce them here periodically on this blog. I hope you make it a point to visit some of these places on your birthday. You could actually make it a whole day of free birthday goodies. Now that would be a great birthday!
Until next time, Happy Shopping.

The majority of freebies are food, cosmetics, and health items. These 3 industries spend millions of dollars a year to give out free samples of their products so consumers will try, and hopefully buy their products. But this is great news for you, the consumer. You get to try out products all for free! There are also other industries that give out freebies, but just not as often. If a company has a product they want you to try they will definitely have a way for you to get it and try it. You just need to know where to look. Company websites are the first place to begin. Here are a few website deals to get you started.
If you live near a California Tortilla and love Mexican food, sign up at http://www.californiatortilla.com/ for the restaurant's newsletter. When you do, you'll instantly receive a coupon for a free taco, plus many other discounts. At http://www.dunkindonuts.com/, click on "Dunkin Perks" and sign up for exclusive offers, including a free medium beverage and another one on your birthday. (We will talk about free stuff you can get on your birthday in my next blog). If you love chocolate like I do then go to http://www.godiva.com/ and join the Rewards Club. Then once a month, every month, you can go into any Godiva store and get a free piece of chocolate. Now that's a sweet deal!
A way to score Free Samples can be through the company directly by programs they have. At http://www.kraftfirsttaste.com/, after registering with the site, you can get free new products as they become available to the public. A really good sample company called Start Sampling brings packaged-goods manufacturers together with consumers who want to test out new products. Register at http://www.startsampling.com/, then click on the items you'd like to try. And finally, General Mills has a Pssst Program. When you sign up at http://www.pssst.generalmills.com/ , General Mills will send you free product samples and coupons. They might ask you for feedback about any of the products you tried.
I hope today's blog really helped you to get some free products and a little insight into how certain companies give out free products and samples. Remember, if there is a product out there you are interested in, go to the company's website to see if they offer free samples. In my next blog I will be discussing great free deals you can score on your birthday.
Until then, Happy Saving.

Walmart.com also has Free Music Downloads. They usually feature between 4 - 10 bands. These Free Music Downloads change every week also, so you can really build up a big music collection. And best of all, it's all completely Free! The Free Music Download link is right under the Free Samples link. Walmart.com also has a new "Free Tools" link located on the Free Samples page. No, you don't actually get free tools like hammers, and saws. What you do get are tools to help you with personal things like a Free BMI Calculator, a Calorie Burn Calculator, a Food Swapper (shows you which foods are better for you than others), an auto Fuel Savings link, a Lunch Savings link, and an Over-the-Counter Medicine Finder. And finally, Walmart has a "Special Savings" link on the same page as the other links that offers discounts on Internet Service and Amusement Parks, to name a few. If you are also looking for free recipes, Walmart.com offers a bunch of them on their "Food and Recipe Center" link. It's just one of many great free items on the Walmart.com web site. And don't forget to check out Walmart's "Clearance" section found on the main page of the site. They have great clearance items that change daily. www.Walmart.com is definitely a great site to visit weekly for a lot of free items and free, useful information.
Have a great weekend everybody,
