Elf on the Shelf: Elfy’s Activity Tonight (Plus Buy Your Own and Start a Christmas Tradition!)

Let the games being!! We started the Elf on the Shelf Tradition this year and here is “Elfy’s” activity tonight….that’s his name.  😉

I will be sharing his activities with you hopefully every day, if I can get my kiddos to be good so he’ll come back from Santa’s every night.

If you want to get in on the fun you can buy your Elf on the Shelf here from Amazon.

Be sure to check out the other naughty activities Elfy has been doing here (and for more ideas)!

Haven’t got a clue what I’m talking about (I swear I haven’t just lost my mind)….read more about it here:

Year after year, children and adults alike are baffled by the mystery of how Santa really knows who’s been naughty or nice. After much urging by the elves and Mrs. Claus, Santa has allowed his biggest secret to be revealed in The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition. At the start of each Christmas season, the elf appears to serve as Santa’s eyes and ears, traveling back to the North Pole each and every night to make a detailed report of the day’s activities. This keepsake gift set includes a light skin, blue eyed girl North Pole pixie scout elf and a hardbound watercolor picture book. Children can register their elf online to receive an official adoption certificate and a special letter from Santa.

Before the family awakes each morning, their special scout elf will fly back to their home from the North Pole. However, since these elves like to play games, don’t expect to find them in the same spot!  While some like to hide in the freezer (probably because it reminds them of the North Pole) and others prefer to sit on the fireplace mantle or hang from the chandelier, these elves love to play hide-and-seek with their families. 
Be sure to let us know your ideas!

2012 Walmart Black Friday Deals: Get Black Friday Prices RIGHT NOW!!

UPDATE – Just to clear some things up…first of all, the information in the post and interview are directly from the Director of Communications and Community Relations. You can read his exact answers about the layaway BF pricing. Also, please be aware that although he did say this was acceptable, you will be dealing with a cashier on Black Friday or Thanksgiving who may not know that these are the correct rules so as a disclaimer, you may not want to rely 100% on what the director said since unfortunately, you won’t be dealing with him. Plus, remember that no matter if the UPC’s are different or not, you can put the item on layaway and then pick it up and price match it to Target, Toys R Us (or other stores) price. This will help reassure that your item will be available and not sell out. Last thing, be sure to check on your stores hours for the layaway department on BF and Thursday because they may all vary. Hope that helps!

Wow! So there is some pretty AMAZING news just released about Black Friday and Walmart….

You can start shopping Black Friday prices…right…NOW!!! Say what?! Yes, that’s right! Here is the long story made short (you can read ALL the details below) but basically you can put Black Friday sale items on Layaway right now and then on Black Friday, get the SAME Black Friday pricing!!

I highly recommend looking over the Walmart Black Friday Ad for 2012 and go put them on Layaway See the Walmart Layaway Policy here ANYTIME starting NOW until Wednesday right before Thanksgiving!
Some Important rules/tips…
  • You cannot price match the items right now BUT when you go to Walmart on Black Friday (so Thursday or Friday) you can price match then (with any other Black Friday Ad!!!!!) 😯 – If you are Price matching other stores Black Friday Ads it must be to the EXACT same item. All dates AND times apply.
  • You will then need to pay off your entire layaway balance right then and there on Black Friday and close out your contract (or you cannot price match).
  • Also, remember, I will be up all night long posting Black Friday deals that are available online (and most of these deals WILL indeed be online). So grab some coffee and join me! 😉


Now, have FUN Black Friday shopping early!!


See the internview with the Director of Communications and Community Relations at Walmart about Black Friday below:

  • For items already on layaway, will Walmart price match those items if they have now gone on sale for Black Friday? 
Items that have been put on layaway then are paid off on Black Friday will be sold at Black Friday pricing (i.e. If you place a LG Blu-ray player on layaway today and payoff the purchase on Black Friday, you will pay the $38 Black Friday price).
  • Can you use coupons for layaway items? 

Yes. Walmart is committed to providing our customers with the lowest prices. To back up our price leadership promise, we will match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product right at the cash register even on layaway items.More information is available at

  • Are Black Friday deals online again? 

Customers can also get a jump start on shopping from the comfort of their homes with a two day online-only event on starting early on Thanksgiving Day and extending through Black Friday. Savings on hundreds of the hottest toys and electronics include:·

Samsung 50″ Class LED 1080p 60Hz HDTV – $698

·       Ematic 7” Tablet Android 4.0 1GHz, 4GB – $49

·       Dsi XL Ultimate Bundle – $129

·       Razor A Kick Scooter, Multiple Colors – $25

  • Is Walmart price-matching Black Friday ads?
Our long standing ad match guarantee will be in effect throughout the 2012 holiday season – including on Black Friday. The ad match guarantee ensures that customers get the best prices on toys and other items throughout the store. We will match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad for an identical product right at the cash register. Walmart’s ad match guarantee does not include online prices.


Thanks so much, I Heart the Mart, you totally ROCK!


McDonald’s Accepts Competitor’s Coupons?!

Is it just me or does it seem like lots of stores (and restaurants) are really getting into using coupons lately?! I’m all for that and it makes me happy!

With that being said, check out the image above…yep, that’s a picture posted on the front of a McDonald’s door stating they are now taking competitor’s coupons. Now, I have a feeling this may not be nationwide so be sure to call or ask your McDonald’s store if they are participating.

How awesome would that be? I’m not sure the details but if you’ve heard anything about this please chime in and leave a comment!

Party City: 30% off ENTIRE Purchase Coupon + My Story on How To Save Money on a Birthday Party!

My son’s birthday is coming up and believe it or not, I actually like to get some stuff at Party City! I usually buy the main decor there for the theme we want and then match certain things to it at the Dollar Store (see more below). When you have a coupon for Party City it REALLY helps out. There is a coupon that is good until 7/15 for 30% off your ENTIRE purchase in-store or online – which will bring their prices down to less than Walmart!

So for example, I actually found the Pinatas priced very low and on top of that I got 30% off. I got the Pirate one shown below for $9.99 and after my coupon it was only $7.00! That is an awesome price considering Walmart was around $15.99 (and Amazon was $21.99!)!

Since we are doing Pirates I picked up some plates at Party City with the Pirate theme but then for the adults I just got black and red plain plates and cups at the $1 store which saved a ton. Same thing with the streamers.

My point is – you can still shop at the fun Party stores for Birthday decor but just bring a coupon with you and supplement the party with $1 store items!
