Get Great Deals When Doing Your Holiday Shopping!

Now that the holidays are in full gear, you can get great deals and cash back for shopping through Swagbucks! Just go here and see all of the great cash back you can get from some of your favorite stores. 

Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I've earned over $1000 since joining!  I currently earn between $25 and $75 each month and it really adds up.  Once I redeem my Swagbucks for a prize, it usually takes less than a week for them to arrive in my inbox.  I'm always impressed with how quickly they send our rewards.

I "bank" and save my rewards all year long and redeem them for "FREE" Christmas gifts for the kids!  The kids are always thrilled with their gifts and I'm happy that I was able to stick to our holiday budget and not break the bank!

Here's how it works:

Affordable Stocking Stuffers and DIY Christmas Gifts ~ Shop Oriental Trading!

We all know how expensive the holidays can be, but I also know that there are frugal ways to do just about everything!  I shop year round in order to get the best deals and will purchase items on sale or clearance and save them to give later.

There is one place that always has the best selection of affordable items for every holiday and special occasion.  That place is Oriental Trading!


I'm always excited when my Oriental Trading Company package arrives... it's just like Christmas morning as I open up the box!  Even though I'm the one that made the order and know what's inside the box - I'm always excited to see the items up close and in person.

My most recent shipment included everything Christmas!  Adorable snowman and Santa gift bags, a funny face snowball assortment (plush, flying discs, punch balloons, cups, stress balls), Christmas hard candy sticks, Christmas bulb and stockings gummy candy and green tissue paper.  

The items I received are going to be the perfect stocking stuffers for my kids and goody bags for my students at school.  Oriental Trading allows me to put smiles on a lot of children's faces without spending a lot of money.

Oriental Trading is your frugal holiday headquarters for toys and games, candy, treats, crafts, Christmas party decorations and supplies. Find the perfect Christmas ornaments, Santa costumes and accessories too!

A Holiday Must Have ~ Christmas Forest Wreaths (Holiday Gift Guide ~ Review & Giveaway)

I remember as a little girl spending the day at my grandparents house making swags for family and friends.  We would go for a walk on their property, cut evergreen branches and gather pinecones.  The house always smelled so good and it was such a fun day!  The holidays just aren't the same without a Christmas wreath hanging on the front door.  The look, the smell, the childhood memories!

To this day, Christmas Wreaths hold a very special place in my heart...

When my Christmas Forest Wreath arrived, I couldn't wait to tear open the box.  As I opened the box, I could smell the fresh scent of pine.  My wreath was beautifully wrapped and packaged for safe shipping.  The Christmas wreath was full and gorgeous, absolutely perfect.  The large bow was stunning and ready to be attached.

After much deliberation, I chose the 20" Jingle Bells Christmas Wreath
The Jingle Bells wreath rocks! Each Jingle Bells Christmas Wreath has lights, bells and colored ornaments piled as high as a snow drift! As much a favorite as the song for which it is named, this wreath delights both young and old alike with all the sights, sounds and scents of the season.
