Picaboo

Have you been following my coupon advice and checking out For the Mommas? What's that? You haven't? Ugh - you've been missing some great deals. Yesterday, I got Grandma a brag book for her purse and Tylee a book with pictures of all her family from Walgreens for FREE. I got 15 FREE personalized Shutterfly cards in the mail just yesterday and all of them are ADORABLE! I also got a free 1-year subscription to Weight Watchers magazine a few weeks ago. Score! But remember, these bargains are only bargains if you were going to buy/needed the item in the 1st place. Did I need the brag book and family book? No - but for $2 shipping it was something I was willing to splurge on. Obviously, I'm a picture person and those are right up my alley.
My biggest score so far has been this photobook. Picaboo is giving away a 20-page book to each new customer AND I scored a $100 gift card for $25. My total came to $135 and guess how much I paid? Twenty-five buckaroos! Tylee has 4 or 5 other books from Shutterfly/Snapfish but this one from Picaboo is definitely my favorite. I try to only order books when I get a free coupon code but haven't gotten one in awhile. Translation - I haven't made a book in over a year. Consider yourself warned - this is long. If you have a couple (or 30) extra minutes and want to see the past year in review, click here. (If the pages don't open right away, toggle between them and they will come up.) Oh! And I would love to hear what you think! Just keep the errors to yourself because the book is already on its way. I will be highly disapointed if you find something wrong because it is too late to change it. What I don't know, won't hurt me! Right?

Very sweet--deals and photo album! =) That book must have taken you many hours to put together...narrowing down photos alone is a month-long job. =)

LOVE it! Good job! And what a great deal! Photobooks are so expensive but so worth it, especially if you get a great deal like that. I'm going to have to try that website out for my next book!
