  • Bunny asks: “Has anyone seen any frozen duck or goose?”
  • And Michelle wonders: “Merrionette park participating?”

      Look on the front of the Starbucks bags you bought and see if they have peelies with little stars on them. If you register a Starbucks gift card online at and create an account with them, you can enter the codes on the back of the peelies to earn free stuff.

      (Parenthetical note — if you are buying Starbucks anywhere it’s not crazy clearance and you are lucky just to find it in stock, lol, check the front of the bags to make sure no one stole the peelies. If you find sticker residue, dig for the ones with the stars.)

    Has anyone seen any good deals on wrapping paper? I wrap all our gifts year round in newspaper (the cartoon page) but Santa wraps gifts in wrapping paper. I’d prefer to spend $1-1.50 per roll. I bought some at Dom’s for $1.50 but now they only have $2.50 rolls left.

      I don’t know of any deals on wrapping paper before Christmas, but at our house, we put out home made fabric gift sacks for Santa to put presents in. They’re reusable, eliminating the annual search for holiday paper, and if you hit Joann’s at the right time, Christmas fabric is really, really cheap. Mine just look like really big pillowcases. I actually make pillowcases for my sister’s kids every year to “wrap” their presents before mailing.

    Question to Shandelle;
    “Target has Green Giant bagged carrots for $.99 regular price so free after the $1 coupon from the August Jewel book.”
    How is this Jewel book looks like and where did you find it?
    Thank you

    • Kari O. says

      The Big Book of Savings that Jewel had in August featured a $1/1 coupon. It’d be nearly impossible to find now unless you took a lot during August.
