New Year, New Time2Save Features!

As we all raise our glasses to a new year, we here at Time 2 $ave will be raising the bar by introducing some GREAT new features to our website!  Check out the things we have in store:
  • Video Tutorials
We've been working with a producer (and planning for a very long time) to bring you fun little How-To videos on everything from Drugstores, Groceries, Coupon Organization and other Tips&Tricks -  Look for these weekly video installments early in the coming year!
  • "Simplify Sundays"
With the help of the self-proclaimed "Queen of Clutter-Free" we'll be bringing you weekly tips on how to simplify your life, making it easier to focus on the important things.  We're very excited about this new feature, as it seems a couponer's world is rather "Cluttered" by definition!
  • Re-Vamped Website
We'll readily admit that in the hubbub of teaching workshops, keeping up with grocery & drugstore deals, and trying to keep our home-lives running smoothly..... Well, we've put spiffing-up the website on the backburner.  BUT NO MORE!!! 
Early in the new year we'll be making some welcome changes to the layout, categories, sidebar topics, etc...   All this in an effort to make the site not only Useful but User-Friendly!
  • Suggestions Please!!!
While we're on the subject, we'd love to hear YOUR suggestions for anything you'd like to see here on this site.  We want to help you out in your Couponing efforts in any way we can - whether you're a beginner or a long-time "Coupon Diva".
Above all, we want to minister to others through what we've learned and give back when we can.  So if you've got a good idea, please leave a comment here or email us at time2save (at) hotmail (dot) com.  We'll take it under consideration and hopefully be able to make some of those things happen!

Thrifty, Nifty Christmas Crafts

The shopping is winding down, and thoughts tend toward hearth and home 2 days before Christmas.  Wrapping presents, snuggling on the couch with popcorn and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and of course, Christmas crafts.  Here are some cute ideas of things to do with the kids (or just a friend) that are fairly easy and won't cost you much if anything:

1. )  Pop-Tarts Gingerbread House:

This one is fairly self-explanatory, you build a house using pop-tarts and then let their imagination go wild! Get instructions HERE at the "Sprinklings" website.  (While you're there, join Sprinklings to get free Pop-Tart coupons in the mail.) -Thanks, PinkCouponCafe!

2. ) Paper Snowflakes & "Virtual" Paper Snowflakes

This one's a classic, but not often done well.  Here's a site that tells you the right way to fold those triangles to cut out great snowflakes!  And for those wanting an even easier snowflake project, check out this Make-A-Flake website - it's pretty cool for the kiddos!
-Thanks, ChattanoogaCheapskate!

3. ) Home-Made Wrapping Paper

My kids have drawn each other's names out of a hat, and later today we'll be going to the Dollar Tree to let them pick out a couple little items for each other (Yes, we ARE that classy.)
One way to keep them busy and make some fun is to do home-made wrapping paper together.

I like the potato-stamped paper (or cut out sponge-stamps) the best. But just coloring/painting on a brown grocery bag, newspaper, or regular paper works fine too!

GAP: FREE $20 Gift Card w/Purchase of Jeans

I went to Target last night and tried on 34 pairs of jeans before I found one that didn't make me want to throw them across the dressing room and stomp on their stupid, stupid selves. 
There comes a point when a grown woman has to give up wearing junior sizes (at least for a while....) and that point came hard upon me last night.  Now I wish I would've just gone to the GAP....

Through Dec. 24, Buy any reg. priced pair of:

~ Women's jeans and get a FREE $20 Gift Card  
~ Men's jeans and get a FREE $10 Gift Card!  

That would take care of a present on your list - which is a nice way to end a possibly disastrous perfect-Jean-search!

*I read the fine print on this one, and it says that if you return the jeans later, you can do so for store credit or exchange.  That would be a sweet way to take advantage of all the post-christmas sales.... you know, provided your jeans let you down after trying them on at home in front of your reality-mirror.

- Thanks, FreeSnatcher!
