An Etsy Treasury: How about a family party at home for New Year's Eve?

I will be spending New Year's Eve at home with my family so I thought this treasury by Knitzy Blonde was the perfect example of how I plan to celebrate? Whatever it is that you choose to do on New Year's Eve I hope you have a safe and enjoyable night and to many new beginnings and adventures in 2012!

Rouge River Beads is having a Winter Sale! Save 25% off of all order of $10.00 or more (not including shipping charges). Use coupon code WINTER at checkout to receive your discount.

I personally don't know much about this event but tables are reasonably priced at just $25 each so if you live in the Peterborough, Ontario area and want some exposure for your handmade items this seems like a great opportunity. According to the 30 Crafts Market website there will be two dates for the event, May 12, 2012 and December 8th, 2012. Some categories are already filling up for the May show so don't wait too long before applying. The event will be held in the lower level of the Peterborough Library and showcase handmade goods all under $30. Sounds like it is going to be a great show!

My Shoppers Drugmart Mega Redemption

It took me awhile before I gave the Shoppers Optimum program a try but in just a short amount of time I was able to collect enough points for this weekends Mega Redemption! This was the biggest redemption event of the year and I was thrilled that they included the 30000 points level (which snagged me a lovely $60 off my purchase!) I also must mention that the staff at the uptown Lindsay Shoppers is absolutely fantastic! Here is what my mega haul entailed.
  • Huggies Boxed Diapers
  • McCain Rising Crust Pizza
  • Smuckers Jam
  • Crest Toothpaste
  • 2xOral B Toothbrushes
  • Cheerios
  • 2xRuffles Chips
  • Frozen Mixed Veggies
  • 2xPetit Danone Yogurt
  • Armstrong Cheese
  • Huggies Baby Wipes
  • Facial Tissues
  • Oasis Juice
  • Campbells Soup
  • Similac Infant Formula
I used $17.00 in coupons (for huggies diapers, wipes, similac formula, oasis juice, 2xdanone yogurt, smuckers jam), saved another $34.30 in sale items and then redeemed my Optimum points for another $60.00 off my purchase. Total paid out of pocket: $9.05!

So while I still have ALOT to learn I am beyond happy to have already met my goal this year of saving a whopping $1000 with coupons! I thought that this would be the perfect time to introduce Kawartha Bargains, which will be the new home of all my coupon/freebie/money saving related posts. If you are a Facebook follower I will continue to post both information from both sites there. Once again Kawartha Beads will be home to all things crafty and handmade, both locally and around the globe!
