~**Merry Christmas To You All!**~

My family and I are getting ready to head out on Christmas vacation and I just wanted to take a moment to stop and wish you all very Merry Christmas!***

Thank you to all of my wonderful readers out there who write and tell me how much this blog helped them. I really appreciate all of your support and encouragement! I feel like I have been blessed with so much, and it is my goal to help you all save your hard-earned money as well! As I always say, “Saving money can be sweet!” 🙂

As I look back over 2009, I have been blessed with so much more than I could ever deserve. I am thankful for my wonderful family and all the blessings that God has given us. I am looking forward to 2010 and to see what is in store! Stay tuned for great new things here on My Sweet Savings!***

Again, may you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I am thankful for all of you!

***I am not sure if I will be able to blog much while on vacation, but I will do my best to bring you some sweet deals!***

Target: FREE Archer Farms Ham!!!

GO HERE to print off a Target coupon for $2 off Archer Farms ham. Super Target should have small packages of Archer Farms ham for in the $2 range–so, with the coupon it will be FREE!

I did this deal last year when this coupon was out and got several packs of ham for FREE! These small packages are great for ham sandwiches or casseroles! 🙂

While on the Target site, don’t forget to print off the $5/4 Kelloggs cereal coupon as well as the $1/1 Swiss Miss Cocoa coupon (the cocoa is still on temporary price cut for .97–so FREE with the coupon!)

Thanks for the heads up that the ham coupon is back, Money Saving Mom!

Yankee Candle: Printable coupons for last-minute shopping!

I had posted these coupons before, but I thought that I would go ahead and post them again in case there are any last-minute shoppers out there!

GO HERE to print off a coupon for $15/45 purchase at Yankee Candle–coupon expires 12/24

GO HERE to print off a coupon for $10/25 purchase at Yankee Candle–coupon does not expire until 1/16/10, so you may be able to score some after-Christmas bargains! 🙂

~I love Yankee Candle! Have fun shopping!~

Walgreens: Sweet deal on John Freida Hair Products!

I really like the John Freida hair care product line, so I was super excited to come across this amazing deal right now at Walgreens for the Luxurious Volume collection!

GO HERE to print off your $2.50/1 JF Luxurious Volume product manuf. couopon (you should be able to print it off twice) then GO HERE to print off the $3/1 Walgreens coupon–stack the 2 coupons together, and you should be able to get a sweet deal on these products. Most stores sell them in the $6-$7 range, so you will probably end up paying less than $1.50 per product! In my opinion, the JF line of products are just as good as some of the more expensive ones that you can buy at a salon, so this is a great price! 🙂

**Just remember, at Walgreens you cannot have more coupons than items, so you will probably need a small filler item!**

 

***1 Year Family Circle Magazine Subscription for $4.39!***

Deal of the Day Magazines has yet another great magazine subscription offer OVER HERE!

Today only, you can get a year subscription of Family Cirlce Magazine for only $4.39! Wouldn’t this be a great gift? Family Circle almost always has great coupons, recipes, and articles!

Also, if you use coupon code: SANTASALE17 at checkout, you can save an extra 17% off your total!
