5 for the Thanksgiving Weekend

Here are 5 tips, heads up for you as you begin your Thanksgiving weekend.

1. You'll want to get the newspaper on Thurs, 11/24, Thanksgiving Day. This is the paper that will have all the Black Friday ads in them. I like to look at them in hard copy, instead of the computer. I also like to bring them to the store with me. Also if you are planning to shop AC Moore or Michael's, you'll want to get the paper for their coupons.

2. Yes, some stores start their sales on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, 11/24. Here are the opening times:

CVS 7am, unless yours is a 24 hour store. . then I think they would start the deals at 12:01, but I would call and make sure.

WAGS 9am
Rite Aid 9am
Michael's 4pm
Target midnight
Best Buy midnight

3. There is a good deal going on at Target on Aveeno products. Buy 3 participating Aveeno products and get a $5 gift card. The Aveeno soap is $2.89. Buy 3 for a total of $8.67. Use 1 of the $3/2 coupon from 10/30 SS and one of the $1qs from 10/30 SS and you get your total down to $4.67. At check out you will get a $5 gift card. So you will be making 33 cents on this deal and getting 3 Aveeno soaps for free! This deal does end tomorrow, 11/23 so you gotta go Wed, tomorrow. I went today and got some.

I also got a good deal on diapers. Jumbo packs of Pampers are $8.97. Buy 3 and you get a $5 gift card. Depending on what coupons you have, you can get a decent price on diapers.

4. Here are 2 of my favorite Thanksgiving posts on The Intentional Home:

How to Introduce Thanksgiving Activities

Nurturing a Thankful Heart (check out all the links in this post, especially the one about the tow fighting wolves).Here are some Thanksgiving links for you

and here is a post from Centsible Saver on where to get the cheapest Thanksgiving ingredients/staples.

5. I posted this on The Intentional Home Facebook page, but for those of you still not on there yet . . .DaySpring just came out with a new coupon coupon code that will take an additional 30% off your purchase (and that includes sale and clearance). The code is SUPER30

I just ordered this canvas. I got it for $26.94 (normally $54.99)

I also got this platter for only $3.84.

There are also 14 Super Specials going on right now. Now the 30% code does not apply to these 14 specials, but they are still some great deals. Here are my 2 favorite of the 14:

The wooden caddy I talked about here is now only $9 (normally $30).

Give Thanks - Wooden Caddy

And these inspirational message blocks are only $15 (normally$50)

Inspirational Message Blocks - Set of 9 Blocks

And speaking of DaySpring, remember I am giving away $35 to their store!! Giveaway ends tomorrow morning. Go enter here. You leave a comment for 1 entry. You like my Facebook page (or tell me you already did) for a 2nd entry. And you sign up for my emails (or tell me you already did) for a 3rd entry. So you can enter 1, 2, or 3 times. The odds of winning are looking good.

I'll log on tomorrow morning to announce the winner and then I will not be back blogging til Monday when Rob and the kids are back in school. However, I will probably pop in on Facebook; it is so much faster. Happy Thanksgiving!
