Great Deals for "Cyber Monday" ALL WEEK!

We have moved to a new home! Come visit us at Capturing Inspirations at!

I'm happy to see Cyber Monday is continuing on into Tuesday and Wednesday…and all week long on Amazon! My family and I have picked up a few great deals on electronics, which I have found to be the most savings this time of year.

My husband and I purchased a new tv and a few weeks back a laptop. Electronics are typically at rock bottom prices right around now - so if you've been considering upgrading your technology, this is definitely a good time to do so.

I have found Amazon to have the most competitive prices (especially this week with the Cyber "Monday" deals) and they offer free shipping on a lot of items. 

Happy deal hunting!

Cyber Monday Favorite One-Stop Shop

Tick-tock. Tick-tock.
It's almost here… Cyber Monday! If you didn't get enough shopping during Black Friday - here's your chance to save BIG on hot ticket items and your gift list.

Here are my recommendations for the best place to check out this Cyber Monday.


Pretty much looks like it's going to be the best one-stop shop. Beginning at midnight, Amazon is definitely not holding anything back to give us the biggest sales and best deals of the season. 

They have what's known as "lightening deals" which are (as defined by Amazon) as 
"a promotion in which a limited number of discounts are offered on an item for a short period of time." Be sure to check the site as often as possible to see what discounts are being offered. I recommend starting a "Wish List" if you haven't already, on the items you are wanting to buy, so you can see how much the price has dropped and the percentage of savings. 

Here are just a few of the many deals Amazon will be offering:

  • Up to 50% off popular books
  • Tons, and I mean TONS of electronic deals!
  • Up to 50% off select top toys
  • 40% Lincoln Logs Redwood Junction (Exclusive to Amazon)
  • Up to 70% off New Balance and ASICS running clothing
  • Up to 70% jewelry

That's only just a few things that I found for Amazon when scouting for my own Cyber Monday deals. Good luck tonight and throughout the week on your deals! It definitely feels great to save!

Impressed with Ibotta and My Confession This Week

We have moved to a new home! Come visit us at Capturing Inspirations at!

Okay, I have a confession. I'm planning to ditch my plans to shop this week for my weekly shopping trip. We just have SO much food left, I don't think I can handle shopping for more (or shopping anymore PERIOD). I already stopped at our local farmer's market for my fresh produce and think I will just quit while I'm ahead. However, I will definitely be snagging the Hefty garbage bag deal this week. It's too good to pass up. Here's the deal:

(1) Hefty Trash Bags, $5.50 sale price - used (1) $1.50/1 Target printable and $1/1 Hefty manufacturer printable = $3.00 

I plan on getting at least two…running out of trash bags is like running out of tp. Never a good situation. And we definitely ran out this week (of all days, THANKSGIVING!) so I don't want to make that mistake again.

I have also been really impressed with the Ibotta app. If you haven't checked it out lately, they've added a few new features. I like the movie theater offers and the home improvement offers the best. I just redeemed my first offer today from the Home Depot section for the Christmas lights. If you are getting a fake tree, they currently have a $5 cash back offer as well. Not bad. We always get one of the fresh cut ones (of course, I'm from Maine…can't have a fake tree in our house after growing up cutting down our own!), but I noticed the offer while I was checking things off my list.

If you haven't had a chance to scope out what will be in tomorrow's paper for coupons, you can check out the Sunday Coupon Preview to get a sneak peak. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

A Fun, Family Christmas in Florida: Snow or No Snow

We have moved to a new home! Come visit us at Capturing Inspirations at!

So, I'm pretty excited. December is upon us and so begins the countdown to Christmas. I'm sure I'm not the only one who glanced at the calendar and felt like we were sent on a sling shot out of November and into Christmas time. We can thank a later Thanksgiving for that sudden realization. I hate it when I try to plan ahead on fun family projects and then find myself scrambling to get things together last minute. Where did November go?

My goal is to make it feeeeeel like Christmas around these parts. Florida certainly isn't the most picturesque place that comes to mind when you think of Christmas. I typically recall Home Alone 2 when Kevin is lost in New York and his family is in Florida. Remember that part? It's pouring rain and his family is having a lousy time in their hotel. Meanwhile, Kevin has hunted down the most beautiful Christmas tree and it's snowing ever so perfectly.

My Christmas
Well, I must admit, I still wish for snow every year. But I'm not going to let the weather dictate my happy Christmas. Or especially with my kiddos. Christmas is going to be perfect because we are together and making new traditions and memories.

Christmas is definitely way more fun with kids. They get you into the magic of it all again.
The kids and I typically watch PBS cartoons in the morning during breakfast and, lately, have been seeing "commercials" for the Cat in the Hat Christmas episode since Halloween. Well, I'm not sure who was more excited that it was on the day before Thanksgiving, me…or the kids. I just remember getting the kids into the show by pointing out the animated Christmas tree and talking about the snow and decorations. I may have jumped up and down. I don't think it had so much to do with the Cat and the Hat as it did with Christmas arriving again. This year is going to be awesome. Snow or no snow.
