Free Shipping, no minimum

I don't usually post about particular items that are not on sale, but I just have to brag about this Stainless-Steel Vacuum Bottle from L.L. Bean.  AND, I'll tell you how it saves us money.  L.L. Bean has a no minimum purchase, free shipping special special going on right now.  Plus, if you spend $50, you get a $10 gift card.

We received this as a gift, and it's been one of the most useful gifts ever.  It will keep coffee piping hot ALL DAY LONG.  If you're careful to get your coffee in your cup and seal it back up quickly, you'll enjoy a hot cup of coffee for as long as you've got some in your thermos.  We've even poured a cup more than 24 hours after we put the coffee in the thermos and it's been nice and warm.

How it saves us money:

When we travel long distances - which is several times a year since most of my family lives about 1000 or more miles away - we fill this vacuum bottle up with piping hot coffee right before we walk out the door for our road trip.  Along with a bag full of yummy granola bars and other snacks we purchased at the local dollar store, our awesome coffee thermos helps us stave off the temptation to spend $10 on junky snacks and sugary coffee drinks every time we stop to refuel.  And when one of us starts to get a little sleepy later at night, we crank up the music and - you guessed it - pour a hot cup of coffee.

So if you have a tea/coffee/hot chocolate lover on your gift list, this could be a wonderful gift for them.  The lid doubles as a cup, and it would be great for someone who works outside, road trips, has a long commute, or is confined to a desk (or classroom) all day and doesn't have access to free hot drinks.

$.32 for Beautiful, Quality photo cards

Last year, thanks to some great photos my photog friend, Vanessa, took we made some really cute photo cards at  Here's what I created:

As a Christian, it was important to me that the cards we chose say "Christmas" and there were so many options to chose from on Shutterfly.  There are even some sweet cards with nativity scenes.  I love the wide array of styles from the very traditional to the funky and modern.  Last year we got the cutest photo Christmas card in the mail and I immediately recognized the quality and style of the card to be Shutterfly!  Whether you choose the glossy or matte style, you can count on the quality to be beyond your expectations.

AND, to make this a Frugalista Find, you can always find a coupon code or a sale for Shutterfly.  Right now their Christmas Cards are 30% off and you can get the same type of photo card I ordered last year for only $.32.  ENJOY!

Do you have a blog?  Fidn out how you can get an even better deal from Shutterfly here.

Melissa and Doug Deal on Amazon!

If you've followed this blog at all, you know I'm a Melissa & Doug fan!  Since we're planning on getting our little one a play kitchen for Christmas, I've been keeping my eye out for quality play food items and the best prices on amazon.  Amazon usually has THE best price on toys if you are looking for specific brands or items.  Especially if you get free shipping!

The current "best deal" is a Melissa & Doug Bake and Decorate Cupcake Set which is 43% off and only $11.43!  If you're an Amazon Mom member, you get free shipping.  Signing up for Amazon Mom is free.  Just search "Amazon Mom" in the search bar of and click on the "Save with Amazon Mom" link by the green pacifier icon.  You get free shipping on items that are marked "Prime."  I ordered 2 of these, saving one for a birthday gift.  If it's in your budget to do so, I recommend stocking up on birthday gifts when you find an unbeatable deal on a quality product.  Then you won't end up blowing your budget on a last minute purchase when you don't have time to look for the best price.
