$1/lotion, $2/fragrance mist: Dark Kiss by Bath & Body Works August 10, 2010

Dark KissI heard on the DL yesterday that Bath & Body Works has a stunning new fragrance that is just making its debut — Dark Kiss. A friend of mine was shopping there yesterday and sent me an email right away! Their site describes Dark Kiss as  “a seductive blend of dark berries with a kiss of vanilla to unleash your most primal passions.” Ooh, la la! Seriously, though, she said this was great stuff!

Right now, Bath & Body Works has sample bottles of their Dark Kiss body lotion (2 oz.) on sale for just $1, and their Dark Kiss fragrance mist (1 oz.) on sale for just $2.  This deal is available in the store and on-line (though you’d have to pay shipping), and no coupon is needed.

Hmm… I’m wondering if B&BW is trying to bite into all the vampire hoopla in the movies, books, etc. (Yes, pun intended!)

Find a Bath & Body Works store near you.

Save $ and get those kids crafty June 14, 2010

If there’s one thing I learned about traveling with kids this weekend (to a destination other than the grandparents’), it is to arrive prepared! My 2yo & 4.5yo made these foam visors yesterday morning as they were getting antsy, waiting for everyone to wake up.

Here are some coupons and deals to help get you prepared with easy, inexpensive crafts for kiddos you’re either traveling with or hosting:

50% OFF at JoAnn Fabric & Craft Stores – 50% off any one regular-priced item with code DFP170 (online; exp 6/19/2010)

50% OFF at Michaels – 50% off any one regular-priced item with printable coupon (Find a Michaels near you; exp 6/19/2010)

$2.95 shipping at Hobby Lobby for any order – no code needed! (online; exp 6/19/2010)

Not sure where to start for easy summer crafts? Hit the Vacation Bible School aisle or category for EASY crafts. They’re not all religiously-themed (the visors we made weren’t), and they’re designed for kids to make easily and quickly! The best part of these visors is that after the kids decorated them, they got to wear them too.

Expires: All of these deals expire 6/19/2010

Thanks to Buxr for the Michaels coupon!

 

$10 one-year subscription to National Geographic magazine June 3, 2010

I remember my dad subscribing to National Geographic when I was a child, and how much I loved those amazing vivid photos in there… and the pull-out maps and timelines… and, when I was older, reading the articles too. Yes, I’m a geek, but, admit it, this magazine intrigues you too!

Here’s a deal for a FULL YEAR of National Geographic for just $10 — SAVE $61.88 OFF THE COVER PRICE! I’ve never seen it this low. Hop on over to Amazon and put a one-year subscription (12 issues) in your shopping cart. When you check out, you’ll instantly save an additional $5 OFF the $15 sale price so that it is just $10 for a full year!

A subscription to National Geographic would make a great Father’s Day gift!

Expires: The instant $5 savings expires June 30, 2010.

Thanks, Carrie B. of Spencer, MA!

 

$18.97 Nap Mat with FREE personalization (includes shipping!) May 31, 2010

We’re getting ready for summer travel to friends’ homes and suddenly my 2yo is sleeping in a “big girl” bed… Eeeek! That means no more easy travel with the pack & play (playpen for us “old school” folks). Time to get a nap mat! They’re easy to wash, easy to carry, and perfect for toddlers or little ones when traveling.

Here’s a great deal on reversible nap mats from Lillian Vernon for just $14.98 including FREE personalization (regularly 19.98)! When you use code 410840100 at checkout TODAY, shipping will be a flat rate $3.99, making your personalized nap mat plus shipping just $18.97! That’s an incredible deal!

I like this one in particular because it doesn’t have an attached blanket, making it much less bulky than those with a blanket. Space is a priority when we’re packing the back of the car for road trips! (Plus, she prefers her pink monogrammed blanket from her Nana anyhow!)

Expires: Flat-rate shipping code expires today (5/31/10), and the sale on the nap mats has an unknown expiration

Thanks, RetailMeNot for the shipping code!

This is a local, family-owned shop that I’d really like to see continue to thrive. It is a staple here in the northern ‘burbs of Dallas, but their customers are around the globe! Give them a holler and let them put another thumbtack on the map!

Thanks, Jessica!
