Save on Black Friday Shopping with Flipp + $50 Reader Giveaway

Black Friday Shopping Flipp app

If you got the Sunday paper this weekend I’m sure you noticed that it had a TON of store flyers in it! With Black Friday only a few days away, stores are doing fast and furious advertising. It can be fun to browse through all of those flyers, but it’s not easy to find the exact items you’re looking for and, once you do, it’s not neat to drag all those flyers or the cut out pages along to the store.

One easy way to find the absolute best prices in your area for all your Black Friday shopping is with the Flipp app.  In a nutshell, Flipp is a digital way to keep up with all of your local stores sales flyers and to be able to circle items and create a digital list of the items that interest you.

You can easily use Flipp to search out the best deals on SPECIFIC items.  For example, take a look at the pictures above.  On the left I did a search for “xb0x one console” and it showed me all the deals on those game systems in my area.  (It has flyers from TONS of stores, so it really does a great job of finding everything.)  On the right I did a search for Kitchenaid.  Again it showed me each of the offers for Kitchenaid in my local flyers and told me which stores had each offer.

If you have favorite stores that you visit every year on Black Friday, you can choose to see their whole flyer through the Flipp app.  As you’re browsing through, just click on the items you want to buy and it will circle them in yellow in the flyer (see below).  What it will ALSO do is save them all to your favorites.  That way, when you’re ready to shop, you just pull up all your saved items for the store you’re visiting and you have a handy dandy shopping list for that store.

Old Fashioned Hard Candy Ornament
Do you love the feeling of nostalgia that old-fashioned hard candy brings? My grandma (actually BOTH of my grandmas) always had a bowl of  hard candy out at the holidays. My Grandma on my mom’s side usually had it in an old cookie tin that sat on the dining room table. The whole family would always be passing it around and picking out their favorite pieces to eat.

Old Fashioned Hard Candies

The other place we always got hard candy was at church. Each year on the Feast of St. Nicholas, Santa would be waiting in the church basement for us after Mass. After talking to Santa, each kid got a brown paper bag with nuts and old-fashioned hard candy in it.

If you have fond memories of old-fashioned hard candy, you will love this easy to craft and inexpensive to make hard candy holiday ornament.This old-fashioned hard candy holiday ornament is the perfect way to add some charm to your holiday décor, or it can even be given as a gift. Here is how you can make your own.

Hard Candy Ornament Supplies

Old-Fashioned Hard Candy Holiday Ornament

Supplies needed:
Large, clear ornament. (Make sure you get one with a wide mouth so you can easily fill it)
Old-fashioned hard candy
Ribbon for hanging

1. Begin by adding the hard candy to the inside of the ornament. Simply place one piece in at a time until it is about ¾ of the way full.
2. Replace the cap on the ornament.
3. Add a length of ribbon and tie into a bow for hanging.

If you are concerned about your cap coming lose, you can add a dab of glue to the inside before placing it on. This will help secure the ornament a little more and there will be less of a worry of candy slipping out.

Give this simple old-fashioned hard candy holiday ornament a try. As you can see, it is great for decorating and for giving this holiday season.
