LEGO In-store Gift Guide

March 7, 2014


Lego has included a gift guide in stores.  It’s a neat way to find out about the different Lego sets while you’re in the store.

If you’re a smart shopper, make sure to use your smart phone and cross check prices after you’d made your choice.  Retailers like Toys R Us, Target and Walmart price match.***  You can check out the Lego set you want and get it at a lower price while you’re in the store (if it’s available).

ABL found this DC set through the guide and then checked the price on Amazon:


Don’t forget some stores may also have coupons or promotions so you can double your discounts!

Smart shop and Happy Friday!

Replacing the Dead Toaster

March 7, 2013

Shay Fei Fei and Nomo’s challenge today was to replace the dead toaster.

The old toaster oven stopped working.  This was realized last night while making dinner.  We were supposed to have Parmesan Chicken.  After the alarm went off, the chicken was still raw.

Shay Fei Fei wanted the replacement NOW so online was not an option.  Tough luck Amazon.

Winning Deal:


Hamilton Beach 6 Slice Toaster from BED BATH and BEYOND!
MSRP $49.99 – 20% OFF COUPON plus ABL used her credit card to get REWARDS

Target didn’t have anything within budget that was available and Best Buy was too far.

Don’t forget your credit card rewards and coupons.  Coupons do come in handy when you need something.
