Shutterfly

I adore this website. Not only is a great place to store pictures online, edit and order prints, they have a ton of amazing photo gifts that you can create. They have recently added custom non-photo stationary as well. I've ordered several different items from them, and have never been disappointed in the quality.

Best part is...if you get on their email list, they will send you discount codes. And you can use more than one. You can use more than two. You can use as many codes as you want, stacking and stacking the discounts with joy. I'm telling you, I love this. The vast majority of companies out there don't ever let you use more than one discount at a time, leaving a savvy shopper like me with no choice but to mentally calculate which is the best deal. Not Shutterfly. Use em all.

When you first sign up, there is always some deal just for joining. Right now, I think it's 50 free prints.

I make photo calendars every year from Christmas as gifts for members of the family. I scored a crazy good deal with them this year by using this site and at least 4 different codes I found. Prices that good make me downright giddy. Plus, I didn't pay for shipping, which makes always makes me one happy girl.

I just ordered Ally's birthday invitations, a large 11 x 14 matte print I've been meaning to get of AJ for the wall, and a magnet for the fridge. The magnet was a last minute thing, it was either pay for shipping or find some other small item to qualify for free shipping....and I will ALWAYS opt to find something else versus paying for shipping. Might as well get something for the money, I say. My total, less than $30.

Every so often, there are codes for free items. Find one of those and a shipping code, you're getting something awesome totally free. Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too?

Groupon

I recently discovered this group of websites. Dedicated to saving people money all over the country, they have a daily offer. They have sites for many major metropolitan areas, and most of their online coupons are buy-one-get-one-free or some other crazy discount. The offer changes daily. Some recent ones here have been restaurants, ski resorts, museums, spas, yoga studios and theaters. If you're just the tiniest bit flexible and adventurous, these sites could potentially save you a lot of money.....not to mention open your eyes to all kinds of local businesses.

The closest to me is the Denver site, and you can find yours by visiting www.groupon.com. Give them your email address and your closest city, and they will send you a daily email with the deal of the day.

Daily Deals

Being that I love all things related to Target, this should be the first thing I share here.

If you aren't an online shopper these days, you should be. And if you still insist on resisting, go ahead. Just don't go peruse these deals, or I'll make a believer out of you.

dailydeals.target.com

Every day, five different things are on that page. Those five things are always marked down to ridiculous prices and the shipping is always free. Two of my most favorite things in the world are sales and free shipping. Here, you get both. Every day.

The new items post at midnight, and the best ones are gone quickly. You never know what will be up there, but it's worth checking it out. Happy Shopping!

Round Two!
