Magazine Subscriptions:

Give the gift which will delight Mom all year. She’ll think of you each month as she reads a new issue of her favorite magazine. Here are a few deals:

Go to CouponCabin.com. Search for “Magazines.com”. They’ll give you a $5 off link. Choose from a wide array of titles.

Try MagazinePriceSearch.com – They’ll do the comparison shopping for you. You’ll immediately see where you can get the best price.

BestDealMagazines.com: Subscribe to their weekly email to be informed of their “Deal of the Day” specials. Most subscriptions are under $10. Email subscribers will receive frequent coupon code alerts.

Entertainment Books:

Now is a great time to buy these coupon-packed books. Most coupons in the book are valid through November 1 – still plenty of time to get more than your money’s worth. Here’s the “double your deal” secret: Begin at Ebates.com. Currently, Ebates.com is offering a 25% refund back to you, when you begin your purchase of an Entertainment Book at Ebates.com. For just $15, minus your 25% refund, Mom will enjoy “two-for-ones” all around town.

Other Quick, Frugal Tips:

Earn while You Shop n Surf: Be sure all of your internet searches begin at Swagbucks.com – earn Swagbucks towards gift certificates. While you’re searching, keep earning your way towards something for you!

Give the Gift of Time: Create your own coupon book, with a “gift” for each month of this next year. Choose an activity or surprise for Mom that she can look forward to: tea with you, errands done, garden weeded, lunch and beach walk, etc.

Special Gift Wrap: Utilize artwork the kids have made or brought home from school. Have them practice their letters, draw pictures of their family and pets, etc.

Make a Memory: For Grandmothers or Mothers living miles away (or any Mom), film a greeting card. Include visits to your child’s class, storytelling, songs, bits of ballet practice, or sports practice. Decorate the DVD cover with your child’s artwork, and you have a treasured gift that will be viewed time and again. Be sure to include some sentimental aspects too, like a message from you about what makes your Mom special.
