From Nov 23rd to Nov 27th, Kohls is offering $15 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent in-store or online! That makes larger purchases very cheap!

Stack that promotion with the coupon code GOBBLE15 to get an extra 15% off & you score one cuckoo deal on the Kitchen Aid 4.5 Quart Classic Mixer right now!

  • Head to Kohl’s
  • Search for KitchenAid Classic Plus 4.5-qt. Stand Mixer
  • It should pop up on sale for $233.99
  • Add it to your cart and use coupon code GOBBLE15 to get an extra 15% off.
  • Your total cost to pay out of pocket will be $198.89 + free shipping since it is over $50
    *I would add something else to your cart to get over $200, so you’ll get ANOTHER $15 Kohl’s Cash!
    *Kohl’s Cash® Coupon is earned on the amount of customer purchases after all applicable discounts are applied and before tax is imposed.
  • You will get a $20 Mail in Rebate AND, you will get $45 in Kohl’s Cash – $60 if you bumped up over $200!
  • Final Price= $133.89 (or $118 if you added a cheap item to bump you over the $200 mark!)
You could also get a Keurig Elite Coffee Brewer for $149, bump your total to over $150, use the coupon code GOBBLE15 (will take off about $23 depending on what you put in your cart), make sure your total is over $150 after the code, get $45 back!

Here’s how to earn (and use) your $15 Kohl’s Cash coupons! If you’re new to how it works:

  1. Spend $50 or more. You’ll get $15 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent.
  2. The Kohl’s Cash coupon you earn online will be sent via e-mail.** Follow the e-mail instructions to print out your Kohl’s Cash coupon.
  3. Take your Kohl’s Cash coupon to your nearest Kohl’s Department Store or enter your coupon number and pin at checkout on, November 28 through December 5.

Thank you SO much for all your help with A Very Cuckoo Christmas Service Project!  There are lots of donations coming in and it’s wonderful!  I’ve noticed that people are reluctant to help out with clothes for the older kids.  I understand!  Little kids are easy to shop for, but it’s very hard to know what a teen would like!

Since their needs are still great I put together some ideas (from friends with teen-agers) at great prices to help!  You should understand when I say great prices they aren’t the prices you pay when you have toddlers.  Clothes for younger children are a lot less expensive than when the kids get into bigger sizes.

If you can help, but can only do one item (like a pair of jeans) that’s great!  Everyone helping a little helps A LOT!


Teens love Aeropostale!  It’s a hip store with great quality clothing.  Right now you can get 50% off storewide (excludes clearance and fragrances) plus if you use your Ebates or Shop At Home Accounts you can get cash back!

Here are some deals I found:

For Jahlil, 18 years old, XL top Solid Uniform Pique Polo, $12.25 (he likes Polos)
Pants: 36/34 Original Bootcut Light Wash Jean, $22.25

For Justin, 17 years old, L top, Aero 87 distressed Graphic t, discounted to $6.56 after you put it in your cart (was $17.50), Pants 32/32 Slim Bootcut Medium Wash Jean, $22.25

For Joshua, 15 years old, L top, Aero 19 rollout graphic t, discounted to $7.31 after you put it in your cart (was $19.50), Pants 28/30 Slim Bootcut Dark Wash Jean, $22.25

For Jordon, 12 years old, boys Large (same as Adult Small), Aeropostale since 87 graphic t, $4.99, Pants 16 Husky (since he’s still in boys size on pants Aero would not carry his size).

If you decide to order from Aeropostale don’t forget to log in (or register) to your Ebates or Shop At Home account and you’ll earn 3 – 4 % cash back!  When you do your online ordering your cash back adds up quick!

You can also get great teen clothes at great prices at Kohl’s!

I did include shoes even though I know these are a higher price item.  Shoes are very important to teenagers!  They have a lot to do with their identity.  They want to look good all the way to their toes!

Remember if you want to earn cash back start at Ebates (4%) or Shop At Home (2%).  Also use promo code THANKSNSAVE at checkout (15% off 11/23 – 11/27).  PLUS you get $15 in Kohl’s cash for every $50 you spend.

For Jahlil, 18 years old, XL top, hang Ten Streak Striped Tee, $8.16 after all discounts, Pants 36/34 Urban Pipeline Premium Relaxed-Fit Bootcut Jeans, $25.49 after all discounts
Shoes (he likes Basketball and Nike, this is both), Nike Overplay VI Basketball Shoes, size 13, $43.49 after all discounts

For Justin, 17 years old, L top, Enyce Smack Down Tee, $10.19, Pants 32/32 Helix Slim Bootcut Premium Jeans, 22.95 after all discounts
Shoes, And1 Rocket Mid-Top Basketball Shoes, Size 11, $29.74 after all discounts

For Joshua, 15 years old, L top, Tony Hawk X-Ray Blowup Tee, $11.89 after discounts, pants 28/30 (couldn’t find any great deals in this size)
Shoes, Fila Sport Rimshot Basketball Shoes, Size 10, $34 after all discounts

Shoes, Helix Oxford Sneakers, Size 8 1/2, $17 after all discounts

You can also check out their Clearance.  I always find awesome deals in clearance!  Here are some current clearance deals (they change daily so these may not be up to date by the time you look):

Urban Pipeline Central Valley Varsity Premium Tee, $6.63 after discounts
Urban Pipeline Better Online Tee, $6.80 after discounts
Urban Pipeline Warning: Daydreaming in Progress Tee, $6.80 after discounts
Tony Hawk Tailgate Striped Polo, $7.14 after discounts

After you send an item, make sure to contact so I can update this list to cross items off or just add items under Items Already Donated!


Another place for quality clothing!  FREE shipping on orders over $69 with code SHIP69.

Remember to start at Ebates (4%)or Shop At Home (3%) Accounts so you can get cash back!

One last tip from friends with teen-age boys:  They can ALWAYS use socks!!

Right now you can get some FREE items from Bath & Body Works online!  All you do is pay shipping! This offer ends today so you’ll have to do it before midnight!  Shipping to me was $5.99.

Here is how to get the deal:

Look for the items that are Buy One Get One FREE
Add 2 of the B1G1 FREE items to your cart (you can mix and match)
At least one of the items you add to your cart must be $10 or more
Enter Promo Code F115065
Shipping to me was $5.99.   

OR  Add 4 Signature Items to your cart (2 of them should show up free). During checkout, enter the code “FREEGIFT50” to get ANOTHER one for free! Pay for one signature item and then the $6.99 shipping!

You could get this shipped to a family for the Christmas Service Project!  I noticed that Shower Gel is included in the B1G1 FREE sale!  This would be a great gift for any of the older kids on the lists!

If you decide you want to make a bigger order you will still get the B1G1 FREE on all the other items you order (that are included in the sale).  You will also get more cash back with Ebates and Shop At Home for any extra purchases!  First log in or Sign up for Ebates or Shop At Home if you want to purchase through them!

Thanks Reader Dawn & i$ave!

UPDATE: When I posted this there was an option to pick up in store and I read on a forum several people got them. Now they have “killed” this deal and if you call them, they say it’s available at 10:00pm on Thanksgiving. 🙁

Sam’s Club has the Blue Wii for $99 + pick it up in store so no shipping fees. This is the same price Walmart will have it on Black Friday. This is only a good deal for Sam’s members, as there is a 10% extra charge for non-members.

Walmart’s $99 deal will include the Wii, nunchuck, and remote and NO games, the exact same thing that this deal includes.  I see no differences.

I posted this last night and Toralei and Abby sold out, but are back now!

These three dolls aren’t on a huge price cut, however they are exclusive.  People have been looking for them for weeks.  They are selling for $40-$50 on ebay, so scoring them for $17.99 + free shipping is a deal!  Prices on amazon change fast, fyi I don’t know how long this will last.

These will sell out quick as they are hard to find.  NEW UPDATE: Toralei isBack!!! Thanks, Desiree!

Mattel Monster High Toralei Stripe Doll with Pet Sweet Fang $19.99 + free shipping with any $25+ order

Monster High Abbey Bominable Doll With Pet Wooly Mammoth Named Shivver + free shipping  UPDATE: $17.99 again!

Monster High Spectra Vondergeist Doll With Pet Ferret And Rhuen $19.99  + free shipping

I know you can get these cheaper elsewhere for the other doll names, but these 3 ones are the “hot” ones that parents have emailed me saying they can’t find anywhere.
