My Favorite Resources for Great Holiday Deals!

I try to post some of the great deals that I see every day, but there is just no way for me to post everything.  I wanted to share with you my favorite resources for finding great deals during the holidays (and all the time!):

  1. My Frugal Adventures:  Charlene, the owner of this blog, does a great job of focusing on great online deals, so you can do all of your shopping from the comfort of your home!  Not only does she bring you great deals, but she also tries to find the best ones with free shipping!  Also, she's been putting up all of the Black Friday ads, so if you visit her blog and look on the right hand side, you'll see the above Black Friday Deals button.  Just click it on her blog and you'll be brought to her long list of Black Friday deals!
  2. Money Saving Mom:  Crystal, the owner of this blog, does post deals, but she also posts a lot of awesome home made gift ideas.  Crystal's blog always focuses on frugal living and some of the stories she posts are truly inspirational!  Also, she's written a series called:  31 Ways to Earn Extra Cash before Christmas.  And yes, she's the same blog hosting the 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home
  3. Couponing to Disney:  Kristin, the owner of the blog, posts a variety of deals, but she really tends to find great deals for children.  She does post deals for all different toys, but true to her love of Disney, she does post a lot of deals around Disney-related toys. 
  4. Hip 2 Save:  Colin, the owner of the blog, posts a great variety of deals for all genders and ages.  You'll see a ton of deals that will be great for everyone on your list!
Deal-a-Day Sites:
  1. Groupon:  I think everyone has heard of Groupon by now, but if you haven't, they offer different local and online deals every day.  You can purchase products or experiences for up to 90% off.  My favorite deals that Groupon has this time of year are the photo deals.  Many times you'll see deals for photo canvases, photo books or holiday cards from reputable sites like Shutterfly or Snapfish.  They also have a new section this year called Holiday Deals (at the top, towards the right hand side).  These are actual products at deep discounts.  You may find some cool items here that you wouldn't find at the "big box" stores like Target or Walmart.
  2. Eversave:  This site is very similar to Groupon.  Here I also look for deals on photo canvases, photo books and holiday cards.  You may also see a deal on a cool item.  Right now, if you sign up as a new member through this link, you get a $5 credit and if you refer a friend to sign up, you get a $10 credit.  That's another great way to make a good deal even better!
  3. Target Daily Deals:  I check this every day because you never know what they are going to offer as a sale today!  Sometimes they go with themes, but usually there is something for everyone for sale on Target's Daily Deals.  Some deals are so-so and some are great, which is why I check so frequently.  Also, all daily deals come with free shipping.  And if you are a Target Red Card holder (credit or debit), you get an additional 5% off!  I've snagged some really great deals through this portion of their website!
