Save Money Shopping Online On Black Friday!

So the Halloween decorations are down and packed away. The cheery warm Thanksgiving wreath is now on the door, and pinecones are sitting in a basket on my dining room table. I love the Fall colors and decorations, but secretly my mind is racing past Turkey Day and onto the most awesome shopping day of the year...Black Friday!

This year, in keeping with my new found sense of saving money, I am planning my Christmas shopping list early and am strongly committed to sticking to my budget. I have found a great Black Friday shopping site that I will be making great use of. They post black friday ads from just about every store you can think of, plus I will be getting email alerts every time new Black Friday ads are posted.

I am especially eager to get some stuff from Toys R Us for my kids. Once I get my kids Christmas presents pretty much done, it makes the rest of my shopping easier. And I know Toys R Us will be offering some hot deals for Black Friday.

But of course the best part about is that I can shop online on Black Friday for the best deals without leaving home. This is a very good thing. I can sit in my fuzzy robe with leftover pumpkin pie (Hey--it's the holidays...time to splurge on calories, right?) and score on Holiday gifts that will keep my budget intact. What a great way to spend the day after Thanskgiving!

How to Save $10,000 This Year

I first posted this last Jan. (2011)- thought it was worthwhile posting again this year! Also, I mistakenly entered $24.40 in the original post as the amount to save each day-the correct amount is $27.40. 

Yes, you can save (or make--depending on how you look at it!) $10,000 by the end of this year, and it is really pretty easy.

Save $27.40 each day, and after 365 days, you will have saved $10,001 dollars.

Of course, since we are now about 14 days in to Jan., you will need to adjust that savings a bit- but still, you get the gist, right?

And if you save $10 a day, you can still have $3,650.

How about $5 a day? That will give you a nice savings of $1,825.

How to save money each day? Here are a few ideas:

Skip Starbucks--make your own coffee
Skip the take-out lunch--make peanut butter and jelly snadwiches
Make spaghetti 2 times a week--skip the meat
Buy a water filter and drink tap water--skip the bottled waters
Put back one item from your grocery cart each time you shop--and save the co…

Things To Do With Empty Cans of Soup

All of these ideas start with a clean empty soup can with no jagged edges. For some you may want to peel off the labels, others you might just leave the labels on!

1.. Having a picnic? Use empty Campbells soup cans as utensil holders for plastic forks and spoons on the picnic tables. (leave labels on ..adds a colorful unique touch!)

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.
7. Make a Christmas Lum…
