NEVERENDING DEAL THREAD

Ok, Christmas is around the corner and we're all broke. Thought I'd start a thread where we can post great deals and coupon codes for on-line purchases.

Here's my first.

Snapfish...free 18 page photo album (you have to pay s/h of $6.99)

Listen, I consider myself to be a little more high maintenance. I do NOT want ANYTHING bought with a coupon. Come on, Chick....get real. Show me the bucks!

Well, can we make this into anything bought with coupons or good deals, but also ideas for making homemade Christmas gifts??

'Cause when I get my massage each month, the therapist puts these cloth bags filled with rice in the microwave for a few minutes and then packs them around my cold feet and that feels soooooo good. I'm going to find out how she makes hers and I think I'm making everyone these packs for Christmas. Just thinking about the sore spot on my shoulder ... wish I had a warm pack to put on that spot right now!

Please find out your therapist does this, Pat. It sounds awesome!

Thank you!

I lose the coupons or they are expired...Some take expired ones...some don't...I even have a coupon folder in my car thinking that will work...
Doesn't...When I need a coupon, my husband is driving. Go figure..

You can regift my Norman the Gnome for the mere cost of shipping and handling. He's a cheeky fellow that you put at your front door and he will wave and insult your guests (priceless). He's still in his box (what a great gift idea) as I prefer to insult people behind their back than to their faces (kidding, kind of). Anyway, act soon, only 1 in stock - sure to garner a lot of interest!

You know you're over 40 when you get 3 foot massagers at one Christmas (never used any) Any takers?

I use a rice bag for both heat and cold. I partially fill a tube sock with rice (if you pack it full, it will be too hard and won't mold to the area you apply it to), fold down the top, and pin or stitch it shut. It can be put into a plastic bag in the freezer (great on the back of the neck for a migraine) or into the microwave for a heat pack. Don't get it wet though, or the rice will get moldy. If kept dry, it can be used over and over.

So, then, if you use a tube sock, you could use the pant legs from denim jeans, or the sleeve of a long-sleeve sweater, or, or..... Good idea!

We should definitely include regifting on this thread - one man/woman's junk is another man/woman's problem! I also have a sushi making kit - still in box - never opened - any takers?

Pat, I made rice packs for everyone Christmas before last. It's pretty easy.
Fold a length of of tightly woven fabric (I like cotton and it comes in such pretty colors and patterns) the length you want your rice pack, plus a 7/8 inch seam allowance. You can get a lot of rice packs out of a yard of fabric.
You now have two pieces of fabric. Place them together with the right side on the inside, If you want little finger holds at each end, add a piece of 1/4" ribbon about 6 inches long and fold it in half. In the center of each short side facing toward the center of the face side (the side you will see when you turn your project) tack the ribbon in place.
Sew around, the two long sides and one of the short sides. Turn it right side out. Take some regular rice, the amount will depend on how long you have made it, start with two cups and I add some essential oils (lavender, roses, vanilla - you can get essential oils at any craft store) what ever you like.
Fill the tube you have made with the rice, not too full, you want it firm but with a little room for the rice to mold to whatever part of the body you want to place it on. Fold in your 7/8 inch seam allowance on the open side, making sure your ribbon is sticking out the end and just stitch the end closed.
To use it, place it in your microwave for about 1 minute, relax and enjoy the warmth. In the summer you can place it in the freezer, placed on the back of the neck it will lower the effect of a very hot day. Any questions, PM me.

Just one question: Do you put the essential oils right on the rice? What keeps the rice from molding? How much of the oils do you use? One rice pack I purchased (for $20!) has a pocket on it in the middle of the pack, so you can put some oils on a cloth and put it in the pocket after the pack is warmed in the microwave.

I'm excited to begin - I think these will be welcomed gifts and certainly cost less than $20 to make!

I mix the oil right into the rice, remember it doesn't take much (just a few drops) or you will have an overpowering wrap. I have one that my girlfriend (she's a massage therapist) made for me 6 years ago, I'm still using it and one that I made myself, that I use. Mold has never been a problem. I suppose if you want to go the extra step and make a pocket, go for it. I haven't found it necessary. Did I mention that the seam allowance should be 5/8 inch not 7/8 Inch.

I would love a lifetime supply of cat food. My latest rescue kitty eats so much he makes Jethro Bodine of the Beverly Hillbillies look like an anorexic. The ironic thing is that he burns every calorie he take in, and there is not an ounce of fat on him. In the strange but true department, his favorite food is spicy chili. I guess that beats what he used to have to eat out the dumpsters.

You are very welcome. I can't take credit for it. I stole the idea from my girl friend (with her permission). I've given dozens away and they are always loved. However, the look of "what the heck is this" on some peoples faces when they open the gift is priceless.

If you purchase the Entertainment book for your area you will receive far more discounts than are listed in the book itself. You can register your book online to receive discounts online and coupons that you can print. My book cost $25.00 and I have saved over $150 so far - it expires December 2009. I purchased mine at Borders Books but you can order it online also - www. entertainment.com. Happy shopping!
