Best Deal Magazines

Looking to get subscriptions to a few magazines. In my busy life, I have chosen other things to occupy my few minutes of free time, so I don't like to spend a lot of money on magazines. However, for those rare moments, it is nice to have. I am big on holidays and all the fun things I get to do with my kiddos, so 1 Year of Parents Magazine for just $4.69 is right in my budget and it will be there when I want to browse. Best of all, Best Deal Magazines NEVER auto-renews! I hate that! So, you are not locked in later.

If you are not into the Parents Magazine, there are many other magazines to choose from at just $4.69/yr. Such as: Men's Fitness, Marie Claire, Elle, Shape, Seventeen and much more.... These also make great gifts!

And there are even more at just $5.95: Everyday Food, Esquire, Elle Decor and more...

Holiday Shopping Tips

I get this question a lot, “Do you really save a lot of money shopping during the holiday sales?” The answer, is yes you do, however, you can great deals around the year too. There are some shoppers that shop the sales all year round for the holiday season and I agree that it is a money saving way to do it. But, if you are not one of those people or feel that you would overspend if you bought year round, then let me give you my top 5 holiday shopping tips.

1) Don’t wait until Christmas Eve to do your shopping. Most of the items have been picked over and you will more than likely have to settle. The stores close earlier and it is a lot of added stress when you procrastinate.

2) Be careful when buying presents for out of town family members unless you will be delivering them yourself. You may get this great deal on a Barbie car for your niece that was originally $30 and you paid $10, well it might cost you $15 or more to ship it!!!! Instead take advantage of “Cyber Monday”. Yes, it is real. Most companies online will offer FREE shipping on the Monday after Thanksgiving. It is a great way to get nice gifts on deals without having to budget for shipping costs.

3) Make a list of people you are shopping for and any ideas on a gift that you might have, also include your projected cost or max out of pocket expense. It is okay to differ a little, but have a game plan. I personally place a dollar amount by everyone’s name, so I don’t go over. Make sure you keep track of your purchases. I get so excited when I look at my list and find that I spent less than expected but still got something amazing. This will also save you some time and allow you to be more efficient.

4) Do some research. If you have specific items in mind, shop a little. There will be many of weeks of sales during the season and browsing the ads to find the best place is a good thing. Remember, lots of stores offer 14 day adjustments. That means if an item goes lower within those days, they will refund you the difference. So, don’t hesitate if it is one of your must have’s because you are better to buy than be sorry. On the other hand, don’t think that it is over. Keep watching for that item, just in case you can score a better deal.

5) Black Friday is a great day to shop. Get out early and catch some doorbusters! But, if crowds aren’t your thing, try surfing the web. More and more stores are offering deals online as well on Black Friday.

Look for our current Holiday Guide on We will be watching the hottest items of the season and letting you in on the best deal around. We will also have a complete searchable list with ALL items on sale for Black Friday.

Thanks Jackie and Happy Shopping!
