Happy Thanksgiving from Momtrends. Right now the turkey is in the oven (can you smell the Madeira/sage/current stuffing?) and I'm counting my blessings. Of course I am thankful for my two beautiful daughters and my handsome hubby. And what else? All my bloggy friends. If you plan to start a shopping attack on the stores tomorrow, I'm going to give you a head start with two tips.
First, why not skip a trip to the mall and organize and online gift? Team up with other parents and buy an gift card. FrumUs.com is a free online solution that simplifies the group gift process with online gift envelopes to collect money, vote, provide comments and shop. FrumUs collections are processed through PayPal with no minimum collection amounts and no FrumUs fees...couldn't be easier. FrumUs offers My Choice Gift Cards that can be instantly emailed and printed for use at hundreds of merchants such as Borders, Outback, LL Bean or Pottery Barn.
My other tip is to check out FreeShipping.org. With shipping fees ranging from $5-%50, it pays to save on every shipment. Freeshipping.org saves you money by showing what stores offer free shipping and providing them with any necessary coupon codes. There are over 700 retailers on the site that you can get free shipping from including JCPenney, Kohl's, Macy's, Target and Bloomingdale's.
