  • Morning Coffee: Letting go of things to do

    Every year since I started sending out holiday cards on my own, separate from my parents, I’ve included a newsletter about the past year. But for the first time this year, I’ve decided to forego the letter. If I insist on doing “perfect” cards, they’re just not going to get done. So this year, I’m letting go of my need to do things “right,” and sending out the cards as is. I guess it’s my gift to myself :)

    Amazon’s Holiday Lightning Deals today include a Keebler variety pack at 9 a.m. PST (good for school lunches or snacks on the go), Keebler crackers at noon and 4 p.m., and Toy Story 3 figures at noon. Disclosure: I’m an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

    The basic LEGO Duplo Set is 33% off at $19.99 right now. Back when the boys were young enough for Duplos, I never saw this set discounted this much.

    Coupons.com has some new coupons that will make for great deals at CVS next week. Use the B1G1 free Kodak photo book coupon with the B1G1 free Kodak photo book deal to get two free photo books. There’s also a coupon for $1/1 Tone Body Wash, and you can use it to get free-after-ECB body wash. Links via Escalate Media Network (Via Common Sense with Money.)

    The Ebates Daily Double Store today is Magazines.com with 51% cash back! If you need a last minute holiday gift, you can order a magazine subscription, then pick up the current issue and present that to the recipient with a note about the subscription. To learn more about Ebates, read my original review. Thank you if you join(ed) Ebates through my referral link!

    Groupon has a hot deal from Ice.com today – $50 for a $100 voucher or $25 for a $50 voucher. Both vouchers come with a free pearl bracelet worth $30. The vouchers can’t be used toward shipping, but if I’m reading their FAQ correctly, standard shipping is free anyway. I bought an Ice.com necklace a year or two ago and was really impressed with the quality of the item and the packaging, which really gave the gift a lush feel. This is an online deal that can be purchased by anyone regardless of location – just click on the city at the top of the page and go to Fort Meyers in Florida to get the deal. You can also get a $10 credit when someone signs up using your referral link and makes their first purchase (thank you if you join(ed) Groupon using my referral link!). Don’t forget to shop through Ebates to get back 3% of your purchase.

    The last-minute push for your dollars is really continuing. Eversave is offering first-time shoppers an extra $5 off today only with code FIRSTBUY. If you haven’t signed up yet, you’ll also get a $5 bonus for joining, so you can get $10 off your purchase today. Plus, get a $12 credit when someone signs up using your referral link and makes their first purchase (thank you if you join(ed) Eversave using my referral link!).

    Snackpicks has new printable coupons, including $1/1 Kellogg’s Nutri-grain bars, $1/2 Keebler Club Crackers, and $1/2 Keebler Cookies.

    Facebook likers of Vitaminwater can get a printable coupon for B1G1 free 20 oz. bottle of Vitaminwater.
