K-Mart always has really pretty pearl jewelry for some reason.  I wouldn’t complain if my husband got me that pearl bracelet for Valentine’s day; I am a big pearls fan.  Jan. 31- Feb. 6 all their fine jewelry is 70% off, Diamond Studs are 75% off and Sterling Silver is 50% off.  Go here to check out what they have.  Use code 5OFF50 for $5 off at checkout if you order anything online.

Home Depot can be expensive.  Waiting on big sales there will save you enough money for a month’s worth of groceries.  I just subscribed to their new email alert, which they only send when they have special offers, clearance or promos. That way I can buy at the lowest point.  Or should I say I tell my husband he can go get that tool he has been eying.  Go here to sign up.

KidSurplus advertised 80% off some clearance kids winter clothes, so I was looking through their site and found this deal.

They also have toddler books $.99 and tons more clearance stuff.

No matter how much you order, shipped is a flat rate of $8.95.  So make sure to calculate that into your total!

Earlier I posted about the Luvs Diapers for only $3.70 a pack at  Now here’s a deal for cloth diapering parents.

Here’s how to get 3 bumGenius Diapers for only $9.67 each (regular price $17.95)

  • Go to for a new account (this deal will only work for a new account)
  • Add (3) bumGenius one-size cloth diapers to your cart.  I love the colors!
  • Shipping is free for orders over $49 and no tax in most states!
  • Use promo code “AFF10” to get $10 off your order.
  • You’ll pay $43.85 out of pocket.
  • Next go here, print, and submit the mail-in-rebate to get $14.97 back!

After rebate you’ll only pay $28.88 for 3 bumGenius diapers!  This is an amazing deal on these diapers.

bumGenius diapers are one-sized which means that you’ll be able to use them as your child grows.  They come with a newborn insert and one size insert.  Look at the stellar ratings!

If you’re not a cloth diaperer, but you’re thinking about it, well these would be a wonderful diaper to start with.  Two words if you’re venturing into the world of cloth diapers, diaper sprayer!  An essential in my book.

Note about the rebate: “If you prefer a full rebate of $14.97 instead of the magazine subscription, please print and fill out this form and attach proof-of-payment of your qualifying purchase(s) and mail both pieces to the above address.”

(Thanks, Give Me Neither!)
