Zazzle: 100 FREE Business Cards + FREE shipping!

Zazzle is offering 100 FREE business cards. This is a $16.95 value and applies to the standard size business cards. Use code ZAZSHIPSFREE to get FREE shipping on your order.

You do have to enter your credit card information, but once you get to the final screen and select Economy shipping, your total is $0. I tried checking out with PayPal, but kept getting an error.

Since I didn’t need any business cards, I turned the business card into a To/From label for Christmas gifts. These will be perfect!

Thanks, Common Sense With Money!

Tip of the Day 8/31/10 – Save gift bags


Gift bags are expensive. I always save the bags that are still in good condition after I receive them. If the tissue paper isn’t ripped, I will save that too.

It’s one less thing I have to buy, and gift bags are a great solution for those of us who are less talented in the gift wrapping department!

Awesome Deals at Swirl!


Have you checked out Swirl yet? It’s a site that sells designer clothing for a fraction of the price.

Currently if you buy 3 items, you get FREE shipping automatically. This is about a $10 savings. To make the deal even better, new customers can use the code LUVSWIRL to receive $20 off their first purchase! The code is good until August 31, but I don’t know how long the free shipping offer will last.

One of today’s sales is American Apparel. They have items women’s tops priced from $10 and up. That means you could get 3 women’s tops for as low as $10 shipped! Check it out now before your size sells out.

Tip of the Day 8/24/10 – Mail Control


Only touch your mail once.

After you get your mail, you should immediately put it where it needs to go. Put your bills on the desk to be paid, magazines in the magazine rack, junk mail in the recycle bin, etc, etc. Sorting it out immediately helps to cut down on the random mail clutter. Since I started couponing, the level of junk mail I receive has increased dramatically. I recycle anything that can be recycled, always making sure to shred anything with my personal information on it.

I walked in my house today and couldn’t believe how many unopened envelopes were laying on the couch! I will start following the “touch it once” rule tomorrow 🙂

Tip of the Day 8/19/10 – My dressing “room”

Create your own “dressing room.”

Ok, so it’s not really a room, but a small corner of our bedroom where a chair used to sit. I love it! All my hubby did was hang an old coat rack on the wall. Now I have a place to hang my outfits for the week so I can sleep for an extra 15 minutes every morning 🙂

Planning my outfits ahead of time really makes me use more of the items in my closet. (And I have a very full closet, thanks to my love of clearance shopping). Before I started thinking ahead, I would wear the same things over and over again because I was in a hurry. Most of the time, I would end up hating my outfit all day.

So how does this relate to saving money?
1. I wear more items in my closet, therefore lowering the cost per wear and getting more for my investment.
2. If I can’t create a cute outfit around an item, I donate it and get the tax deduction.
3. It saves time. Time = Money.

I always hear the statement that most people “wear 20% of their closet, 80% of the time.” That’s not me anymore, thanks to my hubby’s ability to wield a hammer. Now all I need is a nice little shoe rack for the floor and my dressing corner will be complete!
