Kiva groupon

I have been using for YEARS! I love the whole idea of microloans. Having lived in Latin America for years, I know what these can do for people.

Well, on groupon right now, you can get a $25 to give as a loan for only $15! Seriously this is a FANTASTIC organization and you should really check them out. Great way to give back!

Go to Groupon and it was a Honolulu offer or it was also available on the right hand side bar of my home page.

We can do good and save money :)

Free Box of Herbashine Hair color

Go here and you can get a coupon for a FREE box of Herbashine hair color sent to you!

Disney Personalized Fleece blankets for only $12 shipped!

I make no secret of the fact I LOVE Disney (11 days and counting until we are in Disneyworld!!). and I love this deal:

Get Personalized Fleece blankets for only $12 shipped at the Disney Store! I know my kids would love these - they especially love things that have their names embroidered on it :) These would make excellent Christmas gifts!

Not to mention that if you shop through Ebates, you can get a whopping 7% back!! If you haven't signed up for ebates, you get $5 for signing up too :)

Also if you have a Disney visa, you can get an additional 15% off (if you spend $50) with the code DRVCDIR2

These never go on sale this cheap so stock up!!! (most don't expire until next summer!) We LOVE Tillamook cheese here, so I got a bunch - no limit that I could see :)
