You can go over here and get a $1/1 Nescafe Taster's Choice Coffee with no size restrictions.  The Taster's Choice singles (7 ct) run about $1 at Target, so some pretty cheap coffee!

Saving - $10 for $20 Worth of Merchandise @ St Vincent De Paul! Cheap Halloween Costumes??

Today only on Deals 4 All, you can get a good deal at the local thrift store, St Vincent De Paul!  For $10 you will receive $20 worth of merchandise.

I was trying to think of different ways you could make use of this good deal.  Obviously, if you have some clothes shopping or furniture shopping to do, this would come in handy.  But was also thinking that if you are looking for a creative and inexpensive way to put together some Halloween costumes this year, this just might help!  They may not have actual costumes (which maybe they do), but you can always use regular clothes and other goodies for fun costumes too.

I found this article to give you a few ideas on possible costumes!

Living,Laughing,Saving - Coupon Class????

I got to thinking the other day about putting together a coupon class.  The class would include teaching some of the couponing lingo, show you how to put together deals at local stores, show you where to find coupons, organizing coupons, etc.

My hope would be to include a gift for each participant, which would include coupons, etc.

Before I put time into preparing this class I want to get an idea of how many people would be interested in it.

The class would be held in Sioux Falls, maybe even one in Yankton down the road.  There would be a minimal cost of about $10 to help cover costs of coupons, meeting room, etc.

Are you interested?  If so, please email me (email top right of blog) or leave a comment here.  I would also love to know what things you would be interested in learning.
