Enchanted Savings http://enchantedsavings.com Saving Money | Coupon Savings | Recipes Thu, 19 Nov 2015 01:50:03 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8 Triple Your Cash Back this Holiday Seasonhttp://enchantedsavings.com/triple-cash-back-holiday-season/ http://enchantedsavings.com/triple-cash-back-holiday-season/#respond Thu, 19 Nov 2015 01:50:03 +0000 http://enchantedsavings.com/?p=48561

Most of us have some sort of cash back rewards on our credit or debit cards. Every time we use them, we get a percentage back in the form of cash or redeemable points that we can save in our rainy day fund, or use to splurge guilt-free, depending on your personality. But you may not know that, with Swagbucks, you could be multiplying those cash back rewards without changing anything about your credit card or spending habits. As you finalize your holiday shopping plans, don’t miss out on this chance to double, triple or even quadruple your cash back from online shopping!

Here’s how it works – Swagbucks, which always offers great cash back on major online retail sites throughout the year, is doubling their rewards for the entire holiday season. But wait – On Black Friday (Starting 8pm ET on November 26) and Cyber Monday (November 30) they are offering Triple Cash Back at a huge range of featured online stores, think Walmart, Target, Barnes & Noble, etc. – plus a wide range of specialty businesses to choose from in order to find the perfect gifts. All you have to do is click on the retailer’s link from Swagbucks and shop from there – that’s it! Keep using your usual card to get your usual cash back rewards, and rack up triple rewards at Swagbucks on the side. The rewards Swagbucks offer differ across retailers, so expect anything from 3% to 24% Cash Back, on top of whatever your card offers not to mention the retailers’ massive sales. As always, with the SB you earn on Swagbucks you can get Visa cash cards or Pay Pal deposits or pick from a huge range of gift cards, some at discounted prices.

What’s that? you prefer waiting in the freezing cold lines to shopping at home in your jammies on Black Friday? Well ok, it’s a tradition of sorts, I guess. But make sure you put your time in line to good use – with Swagbucks Mobile Apps, you can put cash back in your wallet just by shivering with your smartphone in hand! Plus, when members use the new Swagbucks Mobile App on Black Friday they will be entered into a $500 Christmas Giveaway! For every 25 SB you earn through the Mobile App, you’ll get an entry into a drawing for $500 or 1 of 20 prizes for $100.

With all these deals you can’t lose, and hopefully you can save that little extra to stretch your holiday budget as far as it needs to go this year. First time hearing about Swagbucks? Well you’re missing out! Sign up for free here.

5 Best Tips For Throwing a Cheap Partyhttp://enchantedsavings.com/5-best-tips-throwing-cheap-party/ http://enchantedsavings.com/5-best-tips-throwing-cheap-party/#respond Tue, 06 Oct 2015 23:02:41 +0000 http://enchantedsavings.com/?p=48469 Forget about huge spendings while preparing for a party. It is an era of saving money and there are some pure genius ways how to save on stuff like that too. You can have a lot of fun without spending hundreds of dollars and it is not that hard to achieve that! Want to know how? Without further ado, bellow you will find 5 best tips how to throw a cheap party! Enjoy!

  1. Let’s start from the invitations without which your party would be a party! In fact, if you are throwing a party keeping money in mind, then definitely choose alternative invitations. If your party is informal, you don’t need paper invitations and email can work just perfect for you! It doesn’t cost anything, recipients can write you back instantly and you can use whatever format of invitation you wish for. Simply because online you can find everything! You can also create an event at Facebook and invite everyone via that. So just start thinking in a modern way and use technologies to your advantages!
  2. For decorations, better go minimum. If you are throwing a simple gathering party, you might stay good without any of that at all. So why spend money on something you will throw away and guests won’t even notice? Just be classic, decorate a little and you will be just fine. Sometimes it is much better to go less rather than overboard.
  3. You can also make a fun and frugal party if you prepare for it with coupons! Actually, you can save on everything with them. From food and beverages to games or decorations – coupons are going to help you save money on all essential stuff for sure. Also, with these you can hit any store you wish for too! For instance, Target’s coupons I found at ChameleonJohn.com will certainly let you prepare for your party a lot cheaper. So why not use that and save money then you can?
  4. Don’t be shy and ask your guests to contribute to the party too! It won’t be so hard for them to bring a bottle of wine or snacks and it surely will help you out as a host. It can actually be a part of the party! Announce a contest of the most delicious meal brought by guests and after eating and drinking choose the one winner. Of course, be prepared and give the winner a prize. It can be quite a fun activity and the great start of any party!
  5. Make a dollar store be your best friend. At various dollar stores, you can prepare for the big night even better! Everything in there is a lot cheaper and that is a fact! From decorations and dinnerware, at dollar stores you can find something really unique. And, the best part, cheap too! Hit it for party favors if you wish, or for cheap plastic dishes – everything can be easily found there and it won’t cost you a fortune.

Cricut Design Inspirationshttp://enchantedsavings.com/cricut-design-inspirations/ http://enchantedsavings.com/cricut-design-inspirations/#respond Tue, 14 Jul 2015 22:04:53 +0000 http://enchantedsavings.com/?p=48287 **This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links. 


Now that you’re more familiar with Cricut Explore One™Cricut Explore Air™ and Cricut Design Space™, it’s time to chat about some of the really neat things you can create when you put it all together.

As you’re getting familiar with your Cricut machine, it’s a great idea to take advantage of the free Make it Now™ projects and images that you get with Cricut Design Space™.

For example, check out this adorable 3D Hot Air Balloons Mobile. It’s a fun, easy starter project and makes for the perfect baby shower or toddler’s birthday gift (and can you believe it’s made with felt?). And what’s a gift without a card? Cricut has an incredible selection of card examples made with Cricut Explore machines. There’s even a whole selection dedicated to everything baby, which is where I came across this cute baby shower card.

What better way to tell someone how special they are than with a hand/Cricut-made card and gift? This super fun shaker card is perfect for a 21+ birthday. And even if you purchase a gift, you can always use your Cricut Explore machine to personalize it. For example, if you bought a friend a purse or a wallet, you could use your machine to monogram it with their initials. Or if you bought them a plain shirt or sweater, you could customize it with a fun image or statement.

I love this sparkly pineapple t-shirt. All you need is a blank shirt, a roll of Cricut Iron-on, and images from the Cricut® Summer Love image set.

Pool Party
Soak up the summer fun with a pool party! You can use your Cricut Explore to create everything from invitations to decorations. Here are some really creative ideas for how to add some special splash to a pool party.

Make your own beautiful table decorations, banners, party favor boxes, cards, and more for the happy couple in just a few minutes! You’ll find some really impressive ideas in Cricut’s Design Space, such as this lovely Mr. & Mrs. card.

There are an unbelievable number of project examples in the Design Space, which are categorized by type (e.g. baby, holidays, home décor, school, food, etc.) and by level (easy, moderate, and advanced). You can also find a ton of great ideas for projects on Cricut’s Blog and Pinterest page.

The summer season is a perfect time to get your very own Cricut machine and familiarize yourself with Design Space and all the incredible projects you can create. Try out a few projects each month and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is. By the time the holiday season rolls around, you’ll be a Cricut pro and will wow your friends and family with your stunning crafting skills!

Happy crafting!

We are so excited to introduce Tea’s new Fall and Winter 2015 collection inspired by Argentina & Bolivia! From the sophisticated style of the gauchos and traditional elegance of Cholitas to the passion of tango musicians and the wild color of las mascaras for Carnaval, Tea’s newest collection pays homage to the people and rich culture of Argentina and Bolivia.

Tea explored the vast terrain from the high Andes Mountains to the fertile Pampas region of Argentina. They explored the markets of La Paz, museums, and ancient churches and climbed the blue glaciers of Patagonia. They collected Bolivian blankets, postcards, folk embroidered belts and ponchos. They amassed so many memories, pictures, and mementos that embody the wanderlust spirit of their travels. And they can’t waitto share them with you!

If you read last week’s post, you now know why Cricut‘s Explore One™ and Explore Air™ machines are so incredible – and a must-have for any crafter.

But what bridges the gap between the creative ideas in your head and the Cricut machine is the Cricut Design Space™.

Cricut’s Design Space™ is software for PC, Mac®, iPhone® and iPad® that you get for free with your Cricut machine of choice.

Instead of trying to figure out how to make your project, Design Space gives you the ability to focus on what you want to make. Your Cricut machine takes it from there and brings it to life.

With Design Space, you can start designing from scratch on your computer, iPhone® or iPad®, or you can use a pre-designed, Make It Now™ project. These ready-to-make projects are created by professional artists and include everything from home décor to fashion to paper crafting, and even a variety of FREE projects.

If you want to use one of Cricut’s 50K+ images, you can try them out in the Design Space to see which will look best in your project before you commit to purchasing it.

Uploading Images

When you’re ready to start designing, you can either use one of Cricut’s 50K+ images or easily upload your own using the “Upload Images” tool in Design Space. You can upload and cut .svg, .jpg, .png, .bmp, .gif, and .dxf files absolutely FREE. You can even use fonts already installed on your computer.

Cut What You Want® tool

The Design Space’s Cut What You Want® tool makes it easy to convert your design into a cuttable image in just a few clicks!

The Cricut Design Space™ app for iPad® and iPhone® 

Cricut’s easy-to-use app for the iPad® and iPhone® makes it possible for you can design anytime and anywhere inspiration strikes you.

It also allows you to access all the project’s that you’ve personally designed, whether on your iOs device or your PC or Mac, and gives you access to all the Make-it-Now projects.

With this app, you can start a project while at the beach, enhance it at the ice-cream shop, add some embellishments while cozying up on your couch, and then cut it on the Cricut Explore in your craft room. Plus, it’s cloud-based, so your projects are always synced across all your devices.

P.S. Cricut is working on an Android™ app right now, so don’t feel left out if you don’t have an iPad or iPhone.

In a nutshell, Cricut Design Space™ gives you the creative freedom to design just about anything! Make party invitations, decorations, and favors. Create seasonal home décor or personalize wedding gifts. Add embellishments to your favorite photo memories.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! That’s why next week’s post (the last on in this series) will focus on some really fun and interesting projects that people have created using their Cricut machine and the Cricut Design Space.

Stay tuned!

If you’re reading this post, chances are, you’re a creative type. You like to craft, explore your creativity, and share your creations with others. And it’s for people like you that Cricut created their line of personal electronic cutting machines.

A little known fact about Cricut is that they’ve actually been in business for over 50 years, and their primary purpose has been to develop tools that inspire creativity in people.

Today, millions of people use Cricut’s award-winning products to create beautiful, inventive, and personal projects.

So, what is Cricut? Cricut is actually a family of electronic cutting machines that make it possible for you to easily create amazing do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. Well, not totally DIY because Cricut’s incredible machine’s do a LOT of the heavy lifting.

The two machines that Cricut offers are:

To give you loads of creative freedom and versatility, Cricut developed the Cricut Design Space™, a cloud-based software that works seamlessly with the Cricut Explore® family of machines.

Design Space gives you access to all of your images and projects from any compatible computer or iPad, so you can design just about anything, anytime, and anywhere.

Once you’ve uploaded your design (or pre-designed image) to your Cricut Explore cutting machine, you can sit back and watch it magically bring your design to life.

There are so many interesting things you can make and do with Cricut – which we’ll be sure to cover in a future post. But before we get too ahead of ourselves, it’s best to go over each of Cricut’s machines, what they do, and how they are different. And since I’ve given you quite a bit of info already, we’ll pick up on there in next week’s post!

Until then … happy crafting!

If you’re new to the wonderful world of crafting — or even if you consider yourself to be more of a “basic” crafter — then Cricut’s brand new machine is just for you! This nifty new machine is called the Cricut Explore One™ and it’s perfect for crafing beginners and basic crafters because it offers a simplified design-and-cut system that is incredibly user-friendly. The Explore One™ actually offers most of the same features as Cricut’s other Explore machines, it’s just priced lower!

In addition to its affordable price, here are a few other things about the Cricut Explore One™ that you’re sure to love:

    • It can cut over 60 different materials, from the most delicate materials like vellum to thicker things like leather. It can also cut cardstock, vinyl, fabric, balsa wood, leather, and more…without complicated settings.
    • You’ll have free access to Cricut’s Design Space™ online software and iPad® app so you’ll able to design on your computer or your Pad®. You’ll also be able to use a Bluetooth® adapter for wireless cutting.
    • The Explore One allows you to cut a wide range of shapes and sizes with exceptional precision, from ¼” tall up to 11½” wide x 23½” tall. You just select the material that you’re using on the Smart Set® dial. From there, the machine’s Cut Smart® technology will deliver a clean, professional cut.
    • You can upload your own images and use your own fonts — for free!
      Each machine comes with over 25 free 1-click projects and 50+ free images to get them started right away.
    • If you want to use the machine to write or score, you can easily swap out the cutting cartridge with the Cricut Explore One™ Accessory Adapter and Pen.

The Cricut Explore One™ makes it easy, fast, and affordable for you to explore your creativity and delight your loved ones with personal handmade projects and gifts! And if you purchase your very own Cricut Explore One™ before the end of May – you’ll get free shipping when you use code MAYSHIP!

Quick and Easy Family Dinner and FREE Ground Beef!http://enchantedsavings.com/quick-easy-family-dinner-free-ground-beef/ http://enchantedsavings.com/quick-easy-family-dinner-free-ground-beef/#respond Sat, 18 Apr 2015 04:35:56 +0000 http://enchantedsavings.com/?p=48061
How many times do you come home from work and not know what to eat for supper? Hamburger Helper can help!

Hamburger Helper (as well as Chicken and Tuna Helper) is a very easy and fast supper. You can have it on the table in 30 minutes. All you need to add is the meat and either water or milk. It’s one of the most simple suppers I make. I especially like the Tuna Helper because the meat doesn’t have to be cooked first but they are all good.

I don’t have Hamburger Helper as often as I used to because of the price of ground beef now but here’s an awesome deal for you. Just print and send in this rebate for FREE ground beef when you buy 3 Helpers!
