TODAY! JC Penney F&F Sale! Additional 20% off almost everything! August 9, 2009

Perfect for back-to-school, JC Penney is having a Friends & Family sale – TODAY!!! – offering an additional 20% off almost everything in their stores, on their website, and in their catalog.  And this isn’t just a back-to-school thing! Just think… Football season is about to start, and they sell TVs. Your foyer could use some pizazz, and they sell rugs. Mom’s birthday is coming up, and they sell jewelry. Soon it will be cool enough to enjoy your patio, and they sell furniture. Time to finally drop that last 5lb? They sell fitness equipment! The possibilities are endless!

Print this coupon to use in the store, or use code SAVE20 when shopping at or through their catalog (1-800-222-6161).

Find a JC Penney near you!

Good in the stores on August 9, and good online August 9-10.  I think the catalog is just August 9.

Thanks, Brown Sugar!

Here’s your chance to get 25% off EVERYTHING in the store at the fabulous, amazing, addictive Container Store! You won’t be able to “Contain Yourself” (as their bumper sticker says) when you walk in the doors with this printable coupon. Tell them I sent you. Maybe you’ll get even more of a discount since they know I’m a crazy-obsessive organizer… Enjoy!

Are you a busy person? Have you heard of momAgenda? This is my FAVORITE source for my daily planner. I’ve been an addict since 2006 and live out of this book! I first heard about the momAgenda when I was buying my son’s baptism outfit at Neiman’s, and the saleslady had her momAgenda out on her desk. I saw it and was instantly in love.

The past 3 years I’ve rarely been an arm’s reach away from my momAgenda Desktop. Their new 2009-2010 planners begin with August 2009, which is right around the corner. This year I may give the myAgenda a whirl!

momAgenda’s tagline is “…Get Organized With Style!” With this promo code for 15% off your next purchase at, you’ll be on your way to stylish organization. Now to find shoes to match…
