Amazon: Huggies Wipes 648 ct. for $10.97!

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Please note: Amazon prices are subject to change at any time, so please verify the price before you order.

If you are wanting to stock up on wipes, Amazon has an awesome price right now on the Huggies brand.  You can get a 648 ct. box for just $10.97 (that’s just $0.017/wipe).  In case you are wondering, that’s like paying $1.21 for a 72 ct. pack of wipes!

Here’s how to get the deal:

1.  Add Huggies Simply Clean Baby Wipes, Refill, 648 Count to your cart

2.  Clip the $1.00 coupon (found right below the price)

3.  If you want free shipping, add another $24.03 worth of qualifying items to your cart.  Of course if you have Amazon Prime your shipping will be free already.

4.  Pay for your purchase and wait for it to arrive at your door!

Stocking up when there are great deals like this is one of the 7 ways that I use to save on diapers and wipes.  It really does help stretch our budget!

Friday, March 14th, 2014 is running a St. Patrick’s Day sale and ALL greeting cards are just 99¢ when you use coupon code CCE4399 at checkout.  This offer is good through Monday March 17, 2014.

The awesome thing about is that you can personalize your cards and you can also have them sent directly to the recipient.  In fact, you can schedule your cards up to 1 year in advance with their easy-to-use Future Send tool.

This would be a great way to save on Easter, Mother’s Day and Graduation cards which usually cost a small fortune!  Oh and just in case you are wondering Cardstore cards are great quality.  I’ve used them numerous times in the past and have had great experiences with them.

TurboTax- Free Federal File

Friday, March 14th, 2014

Use TurboTax and e-file your federal taxes for free.  (State returns are an additional fee or you can paper file them for no cost.)  With TurboTax you’ll get your biggest tax refund guaranteed, with 100% accurate calculations, free help, and step by step guidance so you are confident your taxes are done right.  TurboTax has also been the #1 Rated, Best-Selling tax software brand year after year.

Here’s what reader Courtney had to say about her experience with TurboTax:

I agree that it’s fairly easy to file taxes. I’m an independent contractor and I’ve been filing my taxes on my own for years. TurboTax has an easy navigation system that asks specific questions to allow for the greatest return. I also tested this to make sure I was getting the correct amount by taking my taxes to a professional and they came up with the same number.

Filing our own taxes is one of the easy ways we save money.  Some of you might question the easy part, but unless you have complicated taxes it’s really quite doable.  In fact I’ve done my own taxes ever since I’ve started filing them.  When I was single my Dad uses to help me do them and we paper filed back then.  Talk about time consuming!  Once I was off at college I learned about filing online for free and took advantage of that and that’s what we’ve been doing since we are married too.
