Shutterfly, has hundreds of beautiful Christmas photo cards for us to choose from.
The Christmas cards offered by Shutterfly are remarkably affordable.
Shutterfly has so many options that I am ALWAYS able to choose something that is just perfect in theme.
My personal favorite this year is Make the Mantel - one of their pricier options at $1.34 per card when you buy a minimum of 46 but it is a fold-over card option. The design is festive, simple and classy. Their flat photo cards are gorgeous too and start out at a mere .30 per card.
You can also find very reasonably priced holiday address labels to use for mailing these beautiful cards!
What are your favorites

I found a Little People toy set for a little under $6 and some other great little presents for the kiddos. I think we'll give the Little People set to Stella for her upcoming birthday. I wound up spending about $40 or so for three big bags of toys...and I picked up 10 bags of Chex Mix for .40 each after some $1.10/1 tearpad q's I recently traded for.
I also stopped by Cheesecake Factory to pick up my $1.50 slice of cheesecake thanks to a Facebook promotion and got another unexpected surprise- the receipt included a phone number to call to take a short survey and get a $10 giftcard! Score!

Kroger is having the second and last week of a Mega event this week and there are a lot of great deals to be had. Click here for SouthernSavers' match-ups. I fared very well yesterday night and bought all of the following for $1.71. Not too shabby if I do say so myself...
20 VitaminWater Zero bottles (used .50/1 tearpad q's I won in an auction on hcw)
2 two liter bottles of Sunkist
3 cartons of Breyers Ice Cream (used .50/1 tearpad q's)
5 Kraft Easy Mac single serve containers
That's $48.07 worth of stuff for less than two bucks. How did I do that without using any q's for the Sunkist and the Easy Mac? Because I earned overage on the VitaminWater zero q's. They ring in at $1.25 (allowing the q's to fully double) but after the $5 deduction per 10 items and coupons, it's as if I made a quarter on each bottle.
There's a Kraft catalina deal going on right now that makes the Mega Event an even better deal- read all about here.
Target has its annual July toy clearance going on right now. I'm going to check it out today but last I checked last week my nearby store had items at 50% off. I hold out for the 75% and 90% clearance items to stockpile as birthday and Christmas gifts.

Baked Chicken with a spinach & blueberry salad, sweet peas and wild rice. Here's the breakdown on cost:
Pack of 3 split chicken breasts: $2.02 (on sale for 88 cents/lb at Harris Teeter this week)
Uncle Ben's Wild Rice: FREE thanks to mega sale paired with q at Kroger during a past mega deal
Fresh Spinach: FREE thanks to a free Kroger q won in an auction on www.hcw.com
Fresh Blueberries: about a $1 (used about a 1/3 of a container purchased for $2.50 on sale)
Sweet Peas: about 40 cents after sale price and q at Harris Teeter a week or so (Birds Eye frozen Steamers)
This made for a dinner for 4 for $3.42.
The chicken is super easy to make. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a pan with cooking spray, place the chicken breasts in the pan, season with salt, pepper (we use white pepper), onion powder, garlic powder, lemon pepper seasoning and parsley flakes. We then spray these with a low fat butter spray, but you can also put slices of real butter on top if you're not counting calories.
Pop the chicken in the oven and let cook for 45 - 50 minutes. Comes out very juicy and tasty!

I missed out on the majority of HT's Super Doubles week this week, but did manage to snag some great deals on the tail end- including free Hershey's Extra Dark chocolate bars (a sweet and healthy treat, in moderation of course).
Hope everyone is having a great start to their summer!
