Saving some green

I don't know if you know this about me or not, but I'm kind of cheap :). I don't like to spend money on stuff unless I absolutely have to. Of course, I'm no master shopper like PIGS or anything, but when I come across a great deal, I do what I can to make it work for me.

Every year for Christmas I make my family calenders with pictures of my three nieces. Usually I make them on Cafepress.com. However, last week I got an ad in my email for Snapfish (the website I use for picture prints) saying that all calenders were 35% off for the week. So, naturally I went with that. I also usually wait until November to make my calenders, but I somehow pulled it together Friday afternoon.

Here is a snapshot of my ultimate shopping victory:

You and me both. I prefer the term "frugal" though, ahahaha. The only thing I allow myself to splurge on anymore is my one true weakness... BEER!

PS: Nice job on saving $135!

I have done calendars every year. It will be challenging now since my kids don't do anything cute anymore - Chloe included.
