2 Great Freebies at Amazon Today

Laura Story, Emmanuel

I absolutely *LOVE* Laura Story’s song, Blessings! And I was happy to see that she is one of the artists featured on Amazon’s 25 Days of Christmas. Click here to download Emmanuel by Laura Story.

Money, Possessions, and Eternity by Randy AlcornAlso, when I asked for some suggestions on books or courses for teaching kids about handling finances, one friend recommended Money, Possessions, and Eternity by Randy Alcorn. I was really excited to the Kindle Edition: Money, Possessions, and Eternity offered for FREE on Amazon now too!

Hope you all enjoy the freebies. You never when Amazon is going to change prices though so be sure that it’s still showing as free before you checkout.

Great Deals on Movies & DVDs at Amazon Today!

Oh, Amazon, Amazon, how I love thee, Amazon. 

I haven’t been able to get out much/any to do any shopping yet this Christmas, but I’ve been very happy with the prices that I’ve found on things through Amazon. Most of them have been even lower than prices that I saw in store flyers AND they ship right to my house (usually for free!). Yipee! Since we’ve cut out cable, we all enjoy watching TV series on DVD and I love that I can get those used (like new) for even less!

This week is their Holiday Flurry Deals Week so each day they featuring deals from a popular Amazon store. Today it’s Movies & TV Day. Don’t miss the Deal of the Day and lots of limited-time deals on DVD and Blu-ray sets for hit TV shows, popular movies, and more. Check out even more movie and TV-show deals as well as what’s coming tomorrow with their Holiday Flurry Day Planner.

I love how they give you a peek at what’s coming up:

Thursday – Toys & Games including up to 50% off select Melissa and Doug toys!
Friday – Electronics
Saturday – Shoes & Accessories

Need to earn some Christmas cash? I took advantage of selling a few things through their Trade-In program, and earned almost $50 of Amazon credit, and I didn’t even have write out a description or pay for shipping. So easy!

Anyway, I just wanted to take a minute and remind you all that if you click through any of the links to Amazon on my blog, I earn a small affiliate commission. It doesn’t tell me who ordered what, but just that purchases were made and how much I earned. So if you’re going to be shopping online anyway, be sure to check out Amazon. I’ve found it to be a great place to order books, DVDs, video games, sporting goods, kitchen appliances, electronics, vitamins, and more!

Just click around. You might just start counting the ways that you love Amazon too!


Antique Mommy Does It Again

I saw this great quote on Antique Mommy’s entry, If Mother Teresa had Shopped at Walmart, She’d Just be Teresa.

“I’m a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world. ~Mother Teresa”

I love that mental picture, and I love how that entry mixes her sweet and tart sides with a dash of funny, all while keeping it real. I think we can all relate to dealing with rude/perhaps crazy people while trying to checkout at a store.

Also, I noticed that Antique Mommy mentioned that she was in the September issue of Good Housekeeping (the one with Meredith Viera on the front), and that reminded me that Amazon has their $5 Magazine Subscription Sale going on through October 11th. Just click that link to browse the magazines that are on sale. I think magazines are always GREAT gifts.

Good Housekeeping (1-year auto-renewal) just happens to be one of the mags available for $5, along with Popular Mechanics (1-year auto-renewal) which my boys love!

What are some of your favorite magazines?

I’m a HUGE fan of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, of course, and I think NOW is a great time to subscribe as they celebrate their Birthday Bash and go to the MONTHLY digital format, which still includes Teacher’s Toolbox membership for FREE, all of the digital back issues, the 2012/2013 annual print issue, plus you receive 12 different online programs that will help you add some spice to your homeschool—totally FREE. These are full subscriptions that provide you with everything a paid subscriber receives—almost $500 worth of programs. Find all the details HERE.

I do love a wide variety of magazines as well though. There’s more to life than homeschooling, ya know?

I can’t wait to hear your favorites!
