I love this deal! Right now you can get a $20 Starbucks gift card and two Fandango movie passes for $28 on Plum District, which is kind of like getting two movie tickets for $4 each! This sold out quickly the last time it was featured, so I’d hurry if you’re interested. You can buy up to 10 (which is obviously only for those people who see a lot of movies and drink a lot of coffee – although you can give them as gifts as well!) You have to use both by April 1, which gives you a decent amount of time to wait on a movie you’d like to see.

I recently shared some info on facebook about a website called Lendle where you can borrow and lend books for your Kindle (or any associated devices like Android/iPhone/iPad, which is what I own – you don’t have to have a Kindle. You can even read books on your computer!) I wanted to give you all an update to let you know that if you sign up for a free Lendle account before 12/31 you’re entered to win a Kindle Fire! To enter you must enter a referral code, and if you’d like to enter mine, it’s 8RXQGYZK. If you’d like to see what books I have to loan, here’s my Lendle profile.
Lendle is a great place to share Kindle books that you already own to earn credits to be able to borrow Kindle books you’d like to read. My favorite Lendle tip comes from my friend Sarah’s blog: you can lend all the Kindle books that you’ve gotten for free, because most of them have now increased in price! Here’s a full list of the top 100 Kindle books that are currently free (to the right of the the top 100 ones that cost $).
In case you’re wondering, here are my two favorite books (currently) that I’ve gotten for free for Kindle. Both are highly recommended!
She Walks in Beauty, by Siri Mitchell
Maid to Match, by Deanne Gist (love the portrayal of life at the Biltmore)

Target is currently offering a promotion where you can buy 3 select Baby Care items and get a $5 Target gift card (through 2/4/2012). You can use this promo to get a great deal on Desitin! Here’s how it works:
Buy three Desitin Maximum Strength Diaper Rash Creams (Bonus Pack) for $2.48 each
Use three of this printable coupon for $1/1 Desitin Maximum Strength Original Paste (will need 2 computers to print three)
Pay $4.44 out of pocket and get a $5 Target gift card = kind of like free!
Print some of the other coupons here in case they don’t have this item in stock (and take your diaper coupons too); if you have extra coupons you don’t need you can always leave them behind and be a coupon fairy! Here’s a complete list of participating gift card items and coupons that match.
Thanks, Give Me Neither!

You can rent Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 for $0.99 today only from Amazon! This was a really good movie, although you’ll need to have read the books or have watched the other movies to understand what happpens. Don’t try making this your first Harry Potter movie.
If you haven’t rented from Amazon before, don’t worry, it’s easy. Plus, you can purchase your rental at the discounted price today and still have 30 days to start watching it (although once you’ve started you have 24 hours to finish it.)
Thanks, Savings and Stewardship!

Happy Day-After-Christmas! Remember, this is the time I’ll be shopping for Christmas 2012, as most things will be heavily discounted. Purchase what you need now and save youself tons of stress in 11 months. Plus, by saving money through shopping ahead, you’ll be better financially prepared to give to others throughout 2012.

The quickest way to forget your troubles is to count your blessings. As Americans, even those who are struggling financially are among the richest in the world. Not convinced? Check the Global Rich List.
Here are some statistics I ran across recently and wanted to share with you all. It’s a reminder that although it’s good to provide for your family, we also should consider using our resources to help those who are less fortunate.
- Annual U.S. spending on cosmetics: $8 billion
- Basic education for all global children: $6 million
- Annual U.S. and European spending on perfume: $12 billion
- Clean water for all global citizens: $9 billion
- Annual U.S. and European spending on pet food: $17 billion
- Reproductive health for all women: $12 billion
