Before you start reading, this post is sponsored by RetailMeNot and they are giving away a kickass prize, aka MONEYYYYYY. So keep reading.
So the other day I made the mistake of taking the kids shopping and it was a disassssster. I swear literally every item they saw in the store, they were like, “Mom, can I get this?” “Mom, I want this!” “Mom, this is what I want!!” “I want I want I want I want I want.” And by the time we were done shopping, I was beyond angry.
ME: Aggghhhhh, if you guys ask for ONE MORE THING, I’m going to lose it. You can either do chores to earn money and pay for it or you can put it on your holiday list.
So the second they got home, they sat down and started writing their letters to Santa. Holden needed my help a lot so I didn’t really see Zoey’s Santa letter until she was done.
ME: Wow, that’s, ummm, REALLY long.
ZOEY: I’ve been very good this year.
ME: You have been good, but you don’t want Santa to think you’re greedy, do you?
Because she doesn’t give a crap what I think, but Santa’s opinion is like super important.
ZOEY: No, I don’t.
ME: Okay, then why don’t you take a few minutes to fix it before we send it to him?
So she did. Wait until you see how… right after this short break from the awesome sponsor of this post RetailMeNot And one of you is going to win a $350 Visa gift card from them so keep reading!!!!)
It’s most wonderful tiiiime of the year. Wait, WTH am I talking about? No, it’s not. It’s the time of the year that my bank account is literally hemorrhaging money by the second. But at least I discovered a really cool way to save some money. RetailMeNot gives me totally kickass coupons to my favorite stores!! Like for things I was going to buy anyway!
Seriously, their website and app helped me get money off AND even cash back for a bunch of my purchases!! You can even combine offers to get as much as $30 cash back in one click. Um, hellllooo, that’s like a whole ‘nother present for someone.
Anyways, here is me making the same face over and over again because I’m looking at their site going holy crap, this is amazing.
I used the website to find great deals before I went holiday shopping, and I even put the app on my phone so when I’m running errands it alerts me to awesome deals in the area. And the coupon is right on your phone, so you don’t have to remember to take it into the store.
Electronics, beauty stuff, decorations, pretty much everything I need this holiday. I don’t have to keep track of coupons anymore. RetailMeNot does it for me!! And look how much I saved!! And I’m not even done shopping yet!!See?!!! Look how much I got off at World Market, Toys R Us, Snapfish and Kohl’s!!
I’m even using it for gift cards, which is awesome for teachers/mail people/bus drivers/custodians/tutors/etc. etc. etc!!!!!!!
Sorry for all the exclamation marks, but honestly, I don’t think I’ve been this excited for a while. Okay, back to the story about Zoey and how she “fixed” her Santa list.
ZOEY: I fixed it!
ME: Are you sure? That was fast.
ME: Wait a sec, that’s awesome that you crossed off a bunch of items, but why did you write twos in front of everything?
ZOEY: One for me and I’m going to give the second one to a kid who doesn’t have very much money to get what they want.
ME: Wow, Zoey. That is such a nice thing to do.
ZOEY: Santa isn’t going to think I’m greedy at all.
ME: No, he’s not.
ZOEY: And maybe he’ll even bring me a corn snake!!
ME: Uhhh, I don’t think Santa is allowed to bring reptiles.
ZOEY: Yes, he can. He brought Cameron a bearded dragon last year.
ME: Yeah, but then there was that whole incident with the reindeers when the bearded dragon got loose on the sleigh, so they changed the rules.
ZOEY: What incident?
ME: I saw it on the news.
