Creative Bargain Shopping

9 January 2013

I shop at Office Depot and Staples quite a bit. Especially when they run 100% rewards deals like they are BOTH doing right now.  The real fun starts when I can take what I buy and make something crafty out of it.

This week I used Office Depot rewards to buy round tags. I coffee stain them (using free samples of instant coffee by the way), stamp words or art on each one, and use them on projects or resell them as they are. I sold out of my spider tags in October and word tags in November, so I need to get busy.

I enjoy turning this

into these!



Vera Bradley 50% Sale with Free Shipping, Select Colors

7 January 2013

My daughter in law introduced me to Vera Bradley several years ago. Since then I almost always have a Vera purse on my shoulder. I don’t see special pricing very often, but you know me…always watching for a good deal to pass along.

Right now we can get 50% off some colors (I am shopping for Mocha Rouge) AND with the code FREESHIP35 our orders will ship for free.

I found this deal at Living Rich With Coupons!

There is a new Stampington magazine out this month, Where Women Create Business. I have not made it out to the store to look for a copy yet – but I did enter for a chance to win a free copy of the premier issue. If you are in the U.S., you can enter, too! Just go to the Stampington blog and post your comment in response to their announcement before the contest ends January 7th. Good luck! I am excited about this publication. It looks like it will be full of great business tips that we can use.
