The Holidays are about more than gifts #HolidayCents Win a $200 Visa GC

I never really understood the question “Are you ready for the holidays?” Really what is READY? People always stress out over having enough of everything and pleasing everyone. But if you have family and the basics, you are ahead of the game and in my opinion, you are ready! If you have a to-list that you created for yourself, well that is another matter. I have taught myself over the years to scale back my list and to delegate some of the tasks to others. Life is much more stress-free when chores are shared I find.

My to-do list, just like many has more than gifts on it. There is food to be bought, wrapping paper, bows, tape and other items that make the holidays special. Then if you are like me and have some extra guests visiting this season, there may be other things you need as well. I was looking at recently for sales, coupons and discount codes to help prepare for my guests.

With additional people in the house the big issue is where are they going to sleep? I searched for Futon in the search bar and found a sale with big savings!


Along with the sale I found the company offered free shipping! This will come in handy for us even after the New Year having teens with friends coming over.


Knowing my guests will be taken care of is a huge relief! Now I am heading out to buy some wrapping paper and some lights and a few other things. I am also thinking about checking out a pre-lit tree at Michaels and remembered seeing a coupon I could print out on


I always use these coupons on the bigger ticket item as it says ‘regular priced item’ Wish me luck that I find what I am after!

The last thing I needed for the holidays was a large roasting pan. I had one but it has seen better days. With so many people here for the holidays I am cooking a huge turkey and need a big pan. I am ordering from Sears so searched ‘Sears‘ in the search bar. I found a great coupon saving Up to 50% off + an extra 15% off $100. I was even eligible for free shipping, an added bonus! roasting-pan

I entered my coupon code in and look at my savings!


If you have a few things you need to prep for the holidays, entertaining and the guests, you will want to stop by first so you too can save.
