Being Resourceful

A Savvy Shopper's Guide to Bargains, Deals, & Freebies

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!

 

$8.99 & FREE shipping: custom photo flip-flops! June 7, 2010

This may be the coolest, most unique Father’s Day gift yet! Sure, your guy can wear flip-flops that look just like everyone else’s, but there’s no mistaking they’re his when his flip-flops are adorned with photos of loved ones, your latest vacation, or crazy (possibly embarrassing) pics from his wilder, younger years!

ArtsCow has men’s custom flip-flops for just $8.99/pair plus FREE SHIPPING through June 20, 2010 when you use code FDAY2010 at checkout.

They also have custom flip-flops for ladies and kids! For those, get 30% OFF when you use code DISCOUNT30P through June 7, 2010.

Expires: Men’s deal expires 6/20/2010 and the 30% off deal expires 6/7/2010
