Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Today I picked up some stocking stuffers and Operation Christmas Child items. At Target, I found shampoo and candles on clearance. I found 3 great toys for the stockings and I am hoping to find a good hiding spot for them until Christmas. Here is what I found:

1 Glade Candle- $2.54 used $2.00 off coupon
4 Dove Shampoos- $.84 each, I used 2 B1G1 and 2 $.75 off
4 3ring binders- $.99 each, which I will use for my coupon class this Saturday.
1 My Little Pony- $5.04, I used $5.00 store coupon
1 Transformer- $9.99 used $5.00 store mobile coupon and $5.00 printable
1 Strawberry Shortcake- $5.00 used 20% off printable store coupon

Total out of pocket was $10.12.

CVS Holiday Gift Card Promotion Beginning 10/16

CVS heard how much you loved the Gas gift card promotion they ran all summer that they are bringing out a new gift card promotion with a number of stores gift cards available!
Starting this Sunday, October 16 through December 25, 2011, you can earn $10 gift cards to Macy’s, Gap, Applebee’s, Shell Stations, American Express, Barnes & Noble or CVS every week simply by spending $30 on products clearly marked as part of the “Earn Free Gift Cards” promotion.  You will find participating items from all over the store marked in the weekly ad and in-store.
A few tips:
  • Purchase $30 in participating items before coupons.
  • You can only earn one gift card per week.
  • Purchases towards the promotion do not carry over, so make sure you finish getting your $30 in participating items each week.
  • CVS gift cards are included… awesome!
The best part? You can choose from the participating gift cards and then decide for yourself if you want to keep the gift cards you get back, or use them as gifts for friends and family for birthdays, special occasions or the holidays as we get closer to that time of year.
