Walmart Christmas is now at 75% off!

I heard that Walmart Christmas went to 75% off at midnight.  So I got ready and headed over there after feeding the cats and getting my husband off to work.

So, I'm so excited, but 'darn it' ... they were waxing the floors and I couldn't get to the Christmas stuff.  I wandered around Walmart for about an hour before the floor dried and I could go back to the Christmas stuff.  

They had a LOT of stuff, but not really a lot that I wanted.  I got a bunch of throw blankets (yes, I left some).  Also, there were some candles ringing up 74¢ for the 15 oz and 23¢ for the glass votive size.  I only bought one candle though - just one for my Grandma.  Some of the blankets weren't ringing up on clearance, but the cashier had no problem overriding because they were the ones that had Christmas patterns.

Pee Wee Pillow Pets at Dollar Tree! Yes, only ONE DOLLAR!

Pee Wee Pillow Pets have been spotted at the Dollar Tree!  Good luck finding them though - yesterday, the cashier said that a man came in and bought 192 of them!  Whoa!

Anyway, I ended up with a few different types, I skipped the panda and cow because the white just looked off and not really white.  Let us know if you find any!

Great deals on Maine lobster ... plus an awesome lobster mac & cheese recipe!

Sure, I'm a penny shopper, clearance shopper, and well I even use coupons - and, yes, I even like deals on lobster!  In fact, good food is really my favorite splurge!  Up until a few years ago, I didn't like lobster at all ... I thought lobsters looked liked giant bugs and wanted nothing to do with them.  Then, I had some seafood boil at my cousin's party and I fell in love with lobster.

So, I'm not even sure how I found this company Get Maine Lobster, but I signed up for their emails and besides their good humor, they have some great specials!  My first order was the lobster rolls.  They had a really good deal and I bought lobster rolls for 18 (not that I needed that much at once, but I figured I could take it out of the freezer when I had a craving.)

I took one batch to my sister's house and we enjoyed lobster rolls for lunch.  I am in love with lobster and since my sister and her family were coming to my house for Solstice dinner this year, I decided to order lobster tails!

Here is my plate from Solstice dinner (lobster tail, lobster mac & cheese - my version made with Get Maine Lobster's frozen lobster, and coleslaw).  YUMMY!

What were your holiday fails this year?

UPDATE:  Ulta has sent me an egift card to make up for the mailed one and also sent me a little something for myself.  Thank you, ULTA for making it right!

My first holiday fail was a gift card that I purchased from Amazon.  A $25 Denny's gift card ... and it arrived with no balance.  Thankfully, Amazon has excellent customer service and they refunded the purchase immediately when I called.

The second holiday fail is an Ulta gift card that I ordered from  I ordered before the deadline, so I would receive it by the 24th, but although I ordered on the 18th, it only shipped yesterday.  And, they shipped it by Fed Ex 3-day and shows the delivery estimate as Dec 28.

I tried to call their customer serviced number, but after being on hold for a while, I was asked to leave a message or call back another time.  After trying this a couple times, I posted on Facebook and Twitter.  Ulta on Twitter responded for me to send an email, which I did.  I got a canned reply email saying that they will respond within 24 hours.  So, I don't really have any faith in this being resolved to my expectations, but I will update when I find out.

No new pennies at Dollar General today.

I updated the Dollar General Penny Shopping List page last night, but in case anyone didn't check that, I figured I'd post a new blog post too.

So, there are no new pennies starting today, but there are many other old pennies that you might find if you look hard enough.  Of course, this always depends on how well your store is at getting discontinued items off the floor and if there are other penny shoppers in your area.

If you are new to penny shopping, you might want to check out the Basics of Penny Shopping at Dollar General page.  Remember to always be kind and put the items back that you decide you don't want.  It is not the stores employees job to clean up after you!  It burns me up when I hear people say that it's "job security".  No!  Clean up after yourself - DO NOT wreck displays!

Select Leap Frog Activity Books under $3 at Kmart. YMMV

Kmart has select toys on clearance with 50% off the marked price.  I just happened to spot a $4 off any Leap Frog product coupon in one of my inserts today.  Don't ask which one though as I can't recall - and it might be a regional coupon.

Anyway, some of the Leap Frog books were marked $13.19 and when I scanned to check, they were ringing up as $6.59 - so only $2.59 after coupon!

Kmart get 100% back in points when you buy 3 pc infant pajama sets! See details!

This is a really great deal for me!  I bought the only 3 pair in 18m that I could find at our local Kmart.  I was looking at these about a week ago and didn't see any in my granddaughter's size, so they must  have gotten more in.  So, they are also on sale right now for only $7 - which in itself is a pretty good deal.

So the details.
Buy Wonderkids 3pc set and get 100% back in ShopYourWay Reward points!
Your points will post to your account on 12/20 and must be used by 1/2.

Spend $7, get $7 back in points!  It's like getting these FREE.  This is a no-brainer for those with kids or grandkids!  Plus, the designs are ADORABLE and would make really great gifts!

This particular sign only says boys, but the other sign said girls.  I just didn't get a picture of that sign.

I have no affiliation with this company, I just really like their petits fours!  Every year they seem to have a nice coupon for free 24 count petits fours and other freebies with purchase.

I used to buy these every year and give a box to my mom.  It's funny how traditions like this make me smile.  She would hide her box in her dresser drawer, so her husband wouldn't find them and eat them.  I still buy them, but my mom isn't around to share them with any longer.

Red dot and back to school DID penny at Dollar General. YMMV

"Better safe than sorry" is the cliche that I am going with here. We weren't sure that red dot and back to school were pennying, so we held out until we verified. We were fairly certain Halloween was pennying, so we did report that. I, as well as others, have confirmed that red dot and back to school have also pennied. I have not been out doing a lot of shopping though. Remember that there are always exclusions. The best way to penny shop is by belonging to groups on Facebook and to see what others are getting and what is being included and excluded. Be sure to pay attention to details!
