New to Ebates?
Think of Ebates as a local mall with over 1,200 different stores but with one huge difference. Online stores pay Ebates a commission (think of it as a finders' fee) on every sale and they split this amount with the consumer. Each store pays a different commission so you will save different amounts at different stores; just look at the percentage next to the store name to see how much you will save.

So it is FREE, you earn $10 gift card, and you earn money back on your purchases – what can be better!

♪♫ ♪ “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”♪♫♪

I really do enjoy the holidays!  And I am making a very conscious effort this year to be more prepared and organized and keep the stress down and enjoyment up!  So far it is really working!  (But it is not even December yet :)

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! 

My day started at 7am at CVS grabbing up all the Black Friday specials!

Then we headed to our family Thanksgiving gathering (my family and my husband’s family all in one house).  We had a house full (18 people including  5 kids 7 and under!)  And the food…it was so good!

Then came the best shopping day of the year!!!  Black Friday – yay!  We didn’t do the midnight shopping that some did, but we were out by 5 am and got a lot crossed off our lists (and I got some great deals on some stuff for me too!)

Now the Christmas music and movies are on and I am in the midst of Christmas decorating!  I can’t wait to share with you the mantel, and tree, and everything else!  I am changing things up a bit, and using things from around the house, and loving it so far!

Be sure to be back on Monday for tons of online deals for Cyber Monday.  Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you should be able to have all your shopping done and then sit back and relax for the rest of the month (that’s my plan anyways!)

Christmas tree decorating – upside down or right side up?

I can’t wait to decorate for Christmas this weekend!  Good thing I haven’t had time to decorate yet, because this year has been the hardest year to wait to do it!

Ok, so maybe I am a traditionalist, but my idea of a Christmas tree is something like this… beautiful white lights, decorated with ornaments, and maybe a bow or angel on top.

But apparently some people like to have their Christmas tree – UPSIDE DOWN! 

Check out this tree I found at Home Depot!

5 ft. Pre-Lit Upside Down Tree with 200 Clear Lights TR2156

And here are some decorated upside down Christmas trees!

Ummm…I love the decorations but I think I will keep my tree right side up! :)

How about you?
