Whether you're following Hurricane Issac or tuning into the Republican National Convention, there's lots of events going on this week. Plus, Labor Day caps off our long weekend - Yay! With that in mind, we have incredible deals that are being posted as we speak and I've picked the 5 best deals for you to take advantage of.
Deal #1: Do you like shopping at deal sites? I enjoy a plethora of them because they all have something to offer at a deeply discounted price. Gilt City has a coupon for 50% off everything you purchase. Now that's what I'm talking about. But don't snooze, the deal ends TODAY!
Deal #2: I like my smoothies and so do my kids. Buying it from the store is not cost-effective when it comes to buying it for 2 adults and 2 kids, but I do love the convenience of it when I can grab one on the go. Right now, sign up to be a Jamba Juice Insider and get a printable coupon for a sixteen ounce smoothie for just $2 (enter your zip code and you'll be directed to the sign up page). Within 24 hours of signing up you should receive the coupon via email. Limited time offer.

Money Saving Tips
Did you ever look at a jar and think, "That's worn out"? Glass objects, like many other things, simply don't "wear out." And even if they show a little wear, it's perfectly acceptable to use them anyway. This means that you can buy them already used. Why spend two dollars on the same jar that you can get for fifty cents or less, used?
There are other things you should never buy new:

Kids grow out of their clothes way too fast! And buying new clothes
for your kids all the time can be quite expensive and unrealistic.
By being a little creative and strategic, you can save money while
keeping your children clothed. Here are 10 ways that you can save
money on summer clothes for your kids:
1. Alter winter clothing to create summer clothes for your
kids. Turn jeans that are getting a little short into
cutoffs or capris. Pair a dress that is getting too short with
leggings and the dress becomes a baby doll top. Remove the fleece
lining from winter pants and wear them through the summer.
Pregnancy is a time of high emotions, and can often result in emotional, physical, and financial stress. Today we're going to discuss four ways you can save costs and stress by pre-planning while you are pregnant.
1. Shop the Sales Now. While there are certain things you can't buy until you know the sex of your child, there are a lot of things that can be purchased in advance. While my husband and I are preparing to adopt our second child, we have shopped the sales for diapers during the last three years, and currently have a stockpile of diapers to last throughout our child's entire diapering experience. I purchased these diapers by following the deals at sites like Diaper & Baby Coupons and many more.
One of my favorite times to buy is when CVS has diapers for $9.99 a pack, and you get $10 in Extra Care Bucks to spend in the store when you spend $30 on diapers. This means I've paid a net price of less than $7 for each pack of Jumbo diapers that would have been much more expensive at the grocery store. Also, once you do know the sex of your child, then you can really shop the sales for gender specific items.
Twins – double the fun, double the trouble! But is it also double the cost?
When I found out we were having twins last year I was overwhelmed with excitement. I couldn't believe it, it seemed like a miracle. However, any parent of a twin will admit that along with the joy comes anxiety when you are expecting not one, but two (or more!) bundles of joy. Will we be able to cope with two? Almost immediately I began to do the math in my head, was it going to cost twice as much?
While there is no doubt that having a baby, let alone multiples, comes with a hefty cost, I was delighted to find surprising ways to save when you're having twins. And while unfortunately I have yet to find any discounts on extra sleep for parents of twins, hopefully this will help ease the stress on your wallet.

Finding out that you're pregnant is one of the greatest news you can get. But with the wonderful news, reality sets in. You may start to ask yourself if you can afford having children or what your diet should be like since you're now eating for 2 or more.
