I know a lot of people are a little confused on how Saving Star works…Let me try and explain it. Saving Star is a clipless coupon program. You become a member for FREE and it only takes a few minutes to set up. You then link your store loyalty cards to your Saving Star account. For example, In Wisconsin where I live, I put my Pick and Save loyalty card and my Piggly Wiggly loyalty card.
Now, lets say Saving Star has a $1/1 Keebler Cracker coupon. I come to the Savings Star website, click I want that coupon, and it is automatically set up on my account. I go shopping to either Pick and Save or Piggly Wiggly, Buy a box of Keebler Crackers, and when I check out I will not see the dollar off right away on my transaction, but within about ten days, my store reports to Saving Star that I used that coupon. Saving Star then puts that $1 into my Saving Star account. Once I have gotten at least $5 into my Saving Star account, I can cash out that $5 and either have it put directly into my banking account, a paypal account, or even get an Amazon $5 credit. (It is up to me)
Even better, Saving Star coupons do currently stack with Manufacturer coupons and store coupons.

Does your family celebrate the St. Nick Tradition. I assumed everyone’s did, but I am finding out many do not know about him, especially in the United States, so I just wanted to take a second to explain in my own words.
St. Nick visiting is an old German Tradition my Mother always did for us kids, even as we got older. On the Eve of December 5th, Us kids would put outside our bedroom door our shoe or boot so St.Nick could fill it with goodies! This usually included a nice little note letting us know if we had been Naughty or Nice and what we needed to improve on. (Of course always signed St.Nick) If you have been extra naughty, you would not get any goodies, just a lump of coal. (And yes, I had a few years of Coal)
I think St. Nick is a great thing to start as a family tradition for a few reasons. The first being, Kids get sooooo excited for the holidays, it is a nice way to settle them down a bit with just a few little goodies and trinkets. It is also a nice tradition they will carry on with their family. My grandmother did it, my mother did it, and I also did this for our son. It is a great way to help build your childs self esteem, When you write the letter, of course there will be a few “Need to improves” on there, but you can sandwich these comments with praise and appreciation for wonderful things they have done through out the year! Playing nice with their siblings, sharing, helping out around the house, etc.
Another idea I have heard others suggest is making December 5th a family get together, Instead of using their shoes or boots, pick up some of the plain old Red and White Christmas stockings and decorate them as a family that night, then have them hang them out for St.Nick to fill and leave his special little note in!
