5 Pairs of Baby Leggings Leg Warmers Only $2.59 Each Shipped

Click HERE to get your FREE baby leg warmers with coupon code: “ENBABY”

With the cooler weather coming upon us, this is a fantastic deal! They offered this last year and it was so super popular! Many of our readers were so happy about this and reported about the great quality and the great deal on these baby leggings.

So we definitely made note and wanted to let you know this year when they offered this again! And now is the time!

Well, right now you can get 5 FREE pairs of baby leg warmers! These would even make a great gift. The Baby Leg Warmers are very popular!

You do need to pay shipping, which is $12.95.  So what that basically means is that each pair of baby leggings comes out to be $2.59 each pair shipped to your door!

So that is a really good price considering that they are $10 each pair plus shipping! They have over 70 styles to pick from and you get to pick 5 styles! What a fun frugal shopping spree :)


Here’s an example of 3 of the girls’ styles


Here’s samples of the boys’ styles

There are 70 different styles to pick from including girls, boys, holiday, themed and more!

Here’s how to get them:

  • Head to the Baby Leggings site HERE
  • Click on “Shop Now” and select any 5 baby leggings you like!
  • Once you have made your selection, you’ll automatically be directed to the shopping bag. Enter the promo code “ENBABY” and they will deduct 100% off the cost of your selected baby leggings
  • Just pay the shipping and handling fees of $12.95
  • Per their site: the promo code is “ENBABY” and you can use it more than once just open a new browser window each time you do and you can take advantage of this several times! 

This is only available for a short time and we do not know when the “limited time” is up, but it is available right now!

Get a 1-Year Costco Membership For $55 and Get A Free $20 Gift Card and $30 Free Food and Toilet Paper Coupons

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

UPDATE: We wanted to remind you that you only have a couple more days to get this Costco deal, and so we didn’t want you to miss out in case you forgot or hadn’t seen it yet.

We did this exact deal two and a half years ago and it has been one of the best money decisions we have made. The last time this was offered was in the beginning of February of this year, so it has been over 6 months.

Honestly, we waited FOREVER before getting a membership to Costco as we just weren’t sure it would be worth it.

We live close to a Sam’s Club and we debated every year whether or not we are going to get a membership because Costco was 30 minutes away.  Ultimately, we decided to get this Costco deal (2.5 years ago) and have received so many benefits from it that we have renewed it every year since! We LOVE it!

In fact, this past week, we hit a great organic foods sale that they had and were able to stock-up on our kids’ favorite organic snacks and healthier alternatives for a fraction of the price from places like Whole Foods.  Costco has a GREAT selection of healthier foods, already priced lower per unit due to the bulk purchasing, but then they will have coupon deals and specials in addition to the already low prices.

Basically, we buy some of our produce (as the prices are good) and then stock-up on the coupon/sale items that month and overall, it has been a very beneficial  route for our budget.

We also heard from hundreds of you how much you love your Costco membership and prefer it over Sam’s Club.

Well, we thought we would let you know about this not-to-miss deal!

Why?  Because with this deal from the group buying site Living Social, you will receive many freebies!

The membership is normally $55 if you walked into Costco today.  

But on Living Social, you will pay $55 for an annual membership and receive all of this too! You can buy up to 3 memberships as a gift as well! 

What this deal is that you spend $55 and here’s what you get:

  • A One-Year Costco Membership ($40 value)
  • A $20 Costco Cash card
  • $30.97 in free food and product vouchers. All new members will receive a pack of bonus coupons (a $30.97 value), good for a free Kirkland Signature™ 30 pack of toilet paper, a free rotisserie chicken, a free apple pie.
  • You will also receive three months of free identity protection service brought to you by Identity Guard® (a $40.47 value).
  •  Note: these coupons expire on March 31, 2015.  We just redeemed them all the first time we went to not have to worry about expiration dates!

Total value of what you are getting for $55 is $146.44.  But between the $20 gift card and the $30 in free food and toilet paper, this alone nearly pays for your membership! Awesome! 

Plus – we were excited to find out two years ago (when we purchased this exact deal) that we were able to upgrade to the executive membership (in store when we redeemed out voucher) and still received all our freebies!  The executive membership gives you money back on every purchase and will pay you back at the end of the year if you didn’t get the value of the upgrade price.  We love it!

Head to the Living Social site HERE to get your Costco Membership for the next 6-days only

Please note: this deal is valid nationwide, it’s just hosted under a few cities on the site.  But there are no location restrictions. The fine print states: “To activate your Costco membership you must bring the printed Costco Membership Activation Certificate email or your printed confirmation page to your local Costco location. Valid at US Costco locations, not valid in Puerto Rico.”  Also, you need to get into Costco by December 15, 2014, to activate your 1-year membership. It will not start until you activate it. Also, this is NOT for renewals…only new memberships.

So what’s the verdict…..Will you be joining?  If so, it looks like now is the right time!

Free Amazon Prime for College Students (Plus Earn Unlimited $10 Credits)

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

by Cassie


Amazon never ceases to amaze us.  We actually do a good bulk of our grocery, baby, household and any other needed, non-perishable shopping on Amazon throughout the year because of their highly competitive prices – often much lower prices than even going to Walmart or Costco.  We even end up using the digital coupons on Amazon and not have to cut out coupons and drive to the store.  Our items arrive to our door in a couple of days and we are just happy thrifty campers.

We have a great guide on how every household can maximize Amazon Prime HERE to get better than Walmart or Costco prices. 

Well, they have an even more attractive program for starving college students – the Amazon Student program.

It is basically just like Prime, only you get it for free for 6-months, then if you want to continue, it’s half the cost of Amazon Prime at only $49 for a year.

If you or anyone in your household is a college student to anywhere then this is the WAY TO GO for sure!

So, we love our regular prime that we pay full price for (because it is that worth it!), but we wanted to share the benefits with you again in case you are not sure of the Prime benefits that also equate in the Amazon Student program:


Basically, you get the first few options totally free the first 6 months – the benefit of the free-2-day shipping is alone worth it!

Then after 6 months, the Prime membership for most households is $99 for one year, but for students you get it for $49 – then you get the benefits of the movies, books and songs all year for free.

PLUS…. this is where this is really cool, and only for students who are using the Amazon Student program. You get to earn a little extra money too! After you join, you can tell all of your buddies about this and then you get $10 referral credit added to your account for each college student friend that also signs up! It does not appear to have a limit, so refer away and earn your college living, because you really can live off Amazon. ;)

We aren’t referring as we are not students, but this is a definite triple-plus of the whole deal for you college students!

So, by joining Amazon Student, you will receive many benefits. To be qualified to sign-up, you will need to enter your school and major and have an email address ending in .edu.  My own mom even qualified for this same free Amazon Student Membership.  She is in her 50′s and went back to school after all her kids left home.  She is very happy with this freebie and brags about it to everyone. :)

Get signed-up for free Amazon Student HERE today to start reaping those benefits!

Don’t you just love Amazon :) Saving others money and giving others opportunity to earn money too! Those are the sorts of things we get excited to tell you about! 

If you are not a student……

If you are not a student, don’t sweat it…there is another way you can get a FREE Prime Membership: Everyone can get a free 2-month trial of the Amazon Prime program here. I know, it’s not 6 months, but 2-months is still great. Be sure to read the details!
