The school year has finally kicked off for us Angelenos. Yay! Since I still haven't received the official list of school supplies needed, I am glad that all the Back to School sales are still going on.
As any school-aged parent knows, Back to School spending does not stop with school supplies and clothing because there are other associated costs throughout the school year. Last year, I had to pay for a portion of the field trips, chip in on monthly beverage fees, provide monthly snacks, bought teacher's gifts and the list goes on.
If you just started the school year and want additional Back to School ideas, our DealPros are awesome at doing just that. If you're not interested in anything school related, they also have tips on reducing your cable bill, making popcorn out of the wok and more.
The free stuff keeps coming this Christmas! My favorite from the list this week is the free video that is emailed from Santa to your child. You get to enter their name, upload a photo, and pick all the good deeds they have done through out the year. Then they get all put together in your video from Santa.
Amazon is giving away free Christmas music downloads everyday until 12/25. If you prefer, 'A Christmas Carol' is free to download. There are a couple of new craft e-books this week if you're looking to create the perfect gift.

Bella Swan and Edward Cullen finally got married. The bittersweet human-vampire love affair now an eternal commitment, well, on Edward's part. He is immortal after all. Bella is human, mortal when she met Edward (if you want to know what happens to the couple, go see the movie, no spoilers here). To birth a human baby quite an undertaking, but birthing a half-vampire baby, well, that is just insane. Bella needs a break.
Here are some great gift ideas for new mothers.

Doing your holiday shopping online can save you plenty of headaches and stress during the crazy shopping season. Knowing the very best days to shop for a particular item can also save you plenty of cash. If you're familiar with Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when retailers slash prices, you may have also heard of Cyber Monday, the online version.
But online deals are available on other days as well, if you know what day of the week you should be looking.

Money Saving Tips
Earlier in the week, JSTOR, the company that acts as a gatekeeper for
just about every journal article published in academia in the last
million years, generously announced that it would no longer charge fees
to download works that are in the public domain. Put another way, stuff
that is by law free for anyone will now be free for anyone. So we should all be very, very grateful.

Daily-deal offers are all the rage now, what with sites like Groupon, LivingSocial, and, one of my personal favorites, Giveaway of the Day. Amazon is no stranger to this concept, having offered its daily "Gold Box" bargains for some time.
Now, the company is extending this daily-deal love to Kindle owners: the Kindle Daily Deal offers one e-book per day at a heavily discounted price.
