Free origami paper

Interested in trying your hand at origami, but don't have any paper? Don't wanna spend money on the craft before you know that you like it?

I understand! I'm always hesitant before jumping into a new hobby. And while we sell some of the finest origami paper at ridiculously low prices, we thought we'd help those that just want a small batch to get started with, absolutely free!

We'll ship you 50 sheets total, in 3 different sizes. Enough to create just about all the origami listed on this site! We'll even cover shipping, 'cause we're awesome like that (doesn't cost much to ship paper anyway).

Free download super Mario bros 3

Now you can download super Mario brothers 3: Mario Forever! How cool is that?

To do so go to:;1
Details from the site:
Hearkening back to the heyday of Nintendo, this game faithfully reproduces the classic Super Mario Bros. Although Mario Forever's graphics and sound aren't identical to those of the original, they're so close most users familiar with the game won't be able to differentiate.

The basic platformer action hasn't changed either. As the feisty little plumber Mario, you traverse different worlds to collect coins while dodging enemies such as malevolent mushrooms and ill-tempered turtles. You won't find an extensive feature set, but you can at least change the keyboard controls or disable the music and sound effects.

However, we do think Mario Forever consumes a bit too much processor time, especially considering its outdated design. But if you were a fan of the 1980s classic Super Mario Bros., then we doubt this freebie will disappoint you.

While my cousin was pregnant, she would make baby booties for her daughter. It got me thinking how cheap and easy it is to make baby booties. The cost is less then $1.00 per pair of booties. Even if you get beads to put on the booties it is still less then $1.00 to make a pair of booties. You can make booties to match every outfit. You can always find cheap yarn at the thrift store and possibly crochet or knitting needles.

We went to a wedding on memorial weekend for two university students, one who is graduating this year. Here is how this young couple cut down prices to have a nice frugal wedding.

- One friend offered to take care of the wedding planning as her gift to the couple. This turned out great because it cut out a huge expense.
- They served light appetizers at the wedding instead of a huge dinner.
- Another friend offered professional pictures as his gift to the couple(The friend is actually a photographer.
- A person gave flowers as a gift to the couple.
- I made the bouquet the bride held in her hands for the wedding.
- Keeping the wedding small so that they could have the party at their apartment.

There is nothing wrong with asking friends for help. It is even better when you can provide a service as a free gift to the couple. The couple will really appreciate it and you will save them a lot of money.

Target gift cards

If you thinking about buying items in bulk here is something to consider. Target has been doing a lot of these advertisements lately where if you buy x amount of an item you get a gift card ranging from $5-$20. Last week I bought 2 - 6 packs of bounty paper towels and got a $5 gift card. It worked out great because I went to target just to get the paper towels. The items change weekly but still its worth checking out. A few months ago I got $10 gift card for getting a prescription filled from there. It works great because I only paid $0.40 for this prescription.

free mold testing site inspection


We offer mold testing, mold inspections, mold consulting and specialize in mold testing for black mold, toxic mold, mildew and other harmful mold strains. At Mold Test USA our certified mold inspectors provide accurate and unbiased mold testing. We pride ourselves on placing integrity first throughout our company. Mold Test USA will be with you through your entire mold procedure.

Our process begins with you calling our appointment representative available seven days a week. You will notice from the beginning, our professionally trained and courteous team members are there for you. We then schedule an appointment, convenient for you, for our mold inspector to visit your home and assess your mold situation. Unlike most other companies, we do not charge to come to your home and we also give a visual home mold inspection at no cost to you. Your mold inspector will share with you what they discovered, discuss you options and answer any questions you may have. If mold testing is necessary, your mold inspector will test your mold hot spots. If there is no visible mold present, it is important to test the areas in your home where most of your time is spent.

Your mold test will then be sent to a lab accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA). It will only take 72 business hours to have your mold test results. We can have your mold results sooner if you would like. Your certified analysis technician will then email you your results in order to go over your analysis together. If remediation or mold removal is necessary we will be able to offer names of qualified, reputable mold remediators in your area. Be aware of companies that offer both mold testing and mold remediation because this can be a conflict of interest. Mold Test USA will only test for mold. We do not do remediations.

Please be sure to give them my name if you call, my name is Holly Ansari. Let them know you found the referral on my blog They have a nice referral program.


When Mold Test USA completes a mold test for anyone referred by you, we will send you $25.00 for our appreciation. This is known as our "refer a friend program." We consider this a win win situation for all parties involved.

The way it works is, when you refer someone for a test it is important you email us at We will need your name, address and phone number, as well as the name of your referral. This will enable us to quickly send you our appreciation for your referral.

Our goal after completing the test is to immediately send you our certificate of appreciation, $25.00. Our system is set up to be fast and accurate so you will have no reservations about referring other friends that have similar mold concerns.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to working with you in the future.

JCP Deals

I went to the mall last week, mainly because I need to pay a bill. While there I stopped JCP. I have been eying a formal dress for some time. I decided to try my luck and see how much the dresses are. Lucky me, these formal dresses were marked down to $9.97 each, orginally $200.00. What a steal. I bought 3 dresses. I will take pictures as soon as I get around to it. I got one for my sister in law, I know she will like it. I got the other for me, I can def. use it for an upcoming event. I got an extra one, I am not sure what I am going to do with it. I think I will try my luck selling it on ebay. I'll let you know what happens to it.

Orginal Cost: 636.00
Total OOP: $31.71
Total Savings: $604.29... Crazy!

Money saving reminders


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I had a great weekend. We went to Chicago for the weekend.

I was a guest blogger last Friday for a friend. I wanted to keep my readers updated on what I wrote, so here it is:


So let’s talk about ways to not be wasteful and save money:

1. Free entertainment. There are many ways to have fun for free. My personal favorite is free movies. Over the past year I have watched tons of movies for free. A few nights ago I got to see Knight and day for free. Best of all, I got a chance to see the movies before they were out in theaters. Now some might want to know how this is possible. This is how; many movie companies do free screenings for movies so that they can get people hyped about the movie. If I like the movie, I will most likely tell my friends about it who will actually pay to go watch it.
Well where do you find these free screening tickets?

There are many sites that provide free tickets. My favorite is . There are also other ways to find free screenings, including visiting sites like or . Why pay for movies when you can go with friends for free?

2. There is no shame in couponing. Now I’m not saying start a coupon notebook and spend hours of your life trying to figure out what you can save on. I am however saying that most stores send coupons in the mail. Don’t go to the store without it. Some stores that always have coupons are Macys, New York and company, JCP, express, etc… If you do forget that you have a coupon or you get one in the mail as soon as you get home, you can always go back for a price adjustment later.

3. If there is a reward program at your favorite stores, sign up, you have nothing to lose. A lot of companies are starting these reward programs where you earn points for coupons or money off. These companies include New York and company, Sears, Ulta, Sephora, JCP etc… If you are going to make a purchase from the store, might as well earn points. When you sign up for these programs they usually send really good coupons and most will give you a free gift on your birthday.

4. There is such a thing as free. If someone tells you otherwise, tell them to check out my blog. Many companies are willing to give away sample sizes of things. There are many things that also have the little tag that says “try me free”. These are for mail-in rebates but none the less, it’s still free.

5. Whenever possible, eat for free. IHOP just had this free meal coupon going around on facebook. You just have to like IHOP on facebook and you get the coupon, how easy is that? You don’t always have to say you like a company to eat for free. There is free slurpee day on 7/11 of every year. There is free pancake day at IHOP, national donut day where places like krispy kreme, dunkin donuts and other places offer free donuts. Let’s be honest, most of us are on facebook. Just let facebook update you on free food items you can get.

6. Name your own price. allows you to name your own price when it comes to plane tickets and hotel stays. It is easy to sign up and very easy to name your own price. You tell them how much you want to pay, and what area you would like to stay in for your hotel accommodations and that’s it. You will know fairly instantly if someone accepts your price or not. If they don’t accept your price then just try again. Be reasonable in the price you want to pay. I have stayed at many 4-star hotels and paid only $50 a night. You can specify your location based on the street you want be on or landmarks surrounding the area. The same goes with the name your own price plane ticket.

7. Opt for buying books online as opposed to the first store you walk into. This is for both people in college/university as well as those who buy books for leisure. The easiest thing to do is a Google search. I will sometimes do a search for the book I want to buy on Google and I will see what the sites are offering the book for. Once a find a site that is offering a good deal, I’ll buy it. If you don’t feel like doing that, just pick a site you like and stick with it. My favorite site is I find all the good deals there and they take the lowest commission if you choose to sell books in the future.

8. Great shopping days. Remember there are days that just have amazing deals. January is the best for winter clothing shopping. As soon as Christmas is over, the sales are the best. They are starting to get rid of winter clothing to get ready for the spring selection. If you are brave, black Friday usually has amazing sales. As soon as any holidays are over, there are major clearance sales. Tax free day is also great if you are going to buy expensive items.

9. Clearance racks are your best friend. Now that you know when the best days to shop and you also know the days that have the largest selection on the clearance rack. After holidays and during the change of season there is always clothing on the racks. Yes these items are that seasons clothing but so what? There is most likely going to be items on that rack that you can use later. Example: leggings. Most hijabis at one point will wear a skirt. I wear leggings under my skirts. Also, long sleeve shirts (body shirts) are excellent for hijabis and never go out of style (as long as you get the plain ones).

10. Being wasteful also means throwing away stuff that is useable or recyclable. If you have clothing you don’t want, donate them to goodwill or even to a charity. There are always groups that are collecting clothing for moments like hurricanes, etc. Also, if you have old furniture you don’t want, offer it on sites like craigslist or . You’ll be surprised to know there are plenty who could really use that item you were going to throw away. There are also other hobbyists that enjoy refinish old and unusable furniture. Even if it is broken, there is a chance someone might use it. Trust me, even those worn out shoes you were about to throw away, Nike can recycle them and reuse them to help others out. Check it out:

I’m sure I haven’t told you anything new but inshallah we will be able to continue to stay away from being wasteful. W’salaam!

About a year ago I decided I there were 2 things I would never pay for again. The two things are shampoo/conditioners and deodorant. I am going to tell you how I have managed to not pay for shampoo for this long.

1. There are many sites that offer free samples. I always sign up for free samples. The samples sizes are great for traveling or using the guest bathroom.

2. Look for "try me free" tags. Over the past year I have purchased tons of bottles that say try me free. You send the rebate for a full refund and walk out with an expensive bottle of shampoo. Most will send you checks for the cost however some do send gift cards. I have a gift card that I use when purchasing shampoos with rebates so it doesn't come out of my monthly shopping expenses.

3. Sign up when sites off free bottles of shampoo. Last year I received a full size bottle of shampoo and a bottle of conditioner from Aveeno. I don't remember the site but I was happy to receive the shampoo.

4. Instant rebates or whatever you call them at CVS. Sometimes CVS will sell a shampoo for $4.00. It will give you cvs bucks back for $4.00, making the item free. If you were going to buy advil for example, you could use the $4.00 from the shampoo on the advil, making the shampoo technically free.

Although this doesn't seem like it will save you money, I have managed to avoid buying shampoo for over a year and I am so happy. Some brands of free shampoo I've received. Pantene, Organix, Renpure organic, Axe shampoo and body wash (all in one), vitamin shampoo, sunsilk, aveeno, giovanni, etc...

Happy Savings!

Panera Bread is introducing a customer loyalty card in some states.

After registering the card online, you get a free pastry (loaded on the card).

You also get a second free treat on your birthday. (I can confirm this, because I went today to get my free pastry for signing up, and also on the card was credit for my free pastry for my birthday.)

In my local Panera Bread, an advertisement for these cards is in the middle of the display table that is near the doors and has cellophane-wrapped bread loaves and things on it. You can pick up a brochure about the program from the table, and then ask a cashier for the physical card.

A great way to get good deals on your hotel accommodations is through
They have this name your own price option where you can choose the area you want the hotel to be and the price you to pay. You can select the area based on the area map provided, landmarks or streets addresses. Also, you can choose how many stars you want your hotel to be. If a hotel accepts your price you, then you are all set. I have never paid more then $50 for a hotel. My stays are usually at nice hotels like 4 points, Marriott, etc... I have never had this happen, but if you choose a price that is too low, you will be informed that no one accepted your price.

Things you need to know:
You have to give your credit card information. If they accept your price you are in a binding contract and will be charged for the days/rooms you requested. There is an insurance that you can pay extra for in case you have to change the dates or cancel in the future. If you add days later, you may not guarantee the same place.

To start naming you own price for your next vacation go here!

Yesterday I posted how pictures of a bouquet I made. Just as a reminder here is the picture:

I wanted to share how easy it is to make your own bouquet.

Step 1: Decided on the flowers and ribbon you want to use in your bouquet. I used Cala lilies and I forget what the green long leaves were called.

Step 2: Soak flowers in water with plant food until ready to use. (You do cut off a little of the bottom so it soaks in the plant food and water)

Step 3: Cut down the flowers to the height of your choice. I wanted the flower to hang past the part the bride holds.

Step 4: Arrange the flowers the way you want them to look.

Step 5: Secure the flowers in place. I used rubber bands to hold the flowers in place until I went around it with floral tape. You can skip this step if you choose to.

Step 6: Floral tape the area you want to put the ribbon around.

Step 7: Start wrapping your ribbon the design pattern of choice. ( I used non-wired fabric ribbon, however you can use wired ribbon if you prefer.) I did a simple tight spiral pattern.

Step 8: Secure the ribbon with floral pins/ straight pins. I used white pearl pins to go with the theme. I decided to do a straight line down of white pearls. (When you put the pins in, make they go upwards in a way that won't poke the bride when she holds the flowers.

Step 9: Spray the flowers with hair spray so they won't wilt before the pictures. Our flowers suffered a little but in my defense we had an 8 hour drive with those flowers

It may seem like a lot of work, but it really isn't.

A few weeks ago I was invited to a wedding. One the road trip to NY, our friend who was riding with us and is also the wedding planner asked if I would make the bouquet of flowers for the bride. I have never made a bouquet before but I decided to take on the challenge. Here is the results of my experience:

Here is the picture of the bride and groom with friends:

What do you think? There is a bow at the bottom but my hubby didn't get a good pic of the bouquet. Tomorrow I will post how to make your own bouquet.

Random deals


Yesterday I went to Giant to get groceries and the red seedless grapes were on sale for $1.99 lb. I got a bag. As I was leaving I noticed I was charged $2.99 so I went to customer service. When I went to them, they decided to take the price down because it wasn't coming up in the system. :-/ how sad! The guy gave me a full refund for the grapes and grapes for free! I don't know if that is store policy because that has never happened before, however the guy that gave the refund was the store manager.

Today I went to target. While there I saw the 12 pack of gushers marched down to $2.02 a box. They were discontinuing the bigger sizes. My husband loves gushers so I grabbed all I could find.

Plant a tree free in your state

50 State Program

The Odwalla Plant a Tree program is available in all 50 states from May 25, 2010 through August 15, 2010 or until 175,000 trees are donated. Go to, enter your email address and choose the state where you want Odwalla to plant a tree. Only one (1) click per person. All trees will be planted in state parks in the chosen states. Participants pay NO money under this program. The cost of the donated trees will be paid solely by Odwalla, Inc., $1 per tree up to $175,000. If for some reason a state cannot or does not want to accept the donation, then it would go to a non-profit that would plant trees in that state.

Wet Seal Deals

On Thursday a friend and I went to the mall. She wanted to check out wet seal, a store I normally walk in but don't look at anything. I don't know why, but I always had in my head that nothing fits me. Maybe because of a previous experience, who knows?! As she is looking around arms filled with stuff she wants to try on, I decided to snoop around the clearance section, my favorite section. I see a bunch of boots that are marked down to $3.00! Wow, I was shocked! I found my size, but only in one for the 4 types of boots on clearance, try them on and decide to get them. I also find these cute bangles marked down to $0.50.

Then I walk around the other side of the clearance rack and where there was a million pairs of jeans marked down to $5.00. I'm not sure why but I figured I would just look to see if something comes in my size. To my suprise they had a few styles in my size. I build up the courage to try on the jeans, they fit perfectly. Walked out of a store that I would never enter alone with 2 pairs of a jeans, boots and bangles. Here is a pic:

So here is the numbers:

The boots paid: $3.00 was: $39.50
The jeans(2) paid: $5.00 each was: $24.50 each
The bangles paid: $0.50 was: $7.50

Total oop: $14.18 Total before savings $96.00
Savings $81.82

my almost free lamps!

I got these two matching lamps with shades for free on freecycle. I didn't like how they looked so I decided to spray paint them.

The one on the left is the one I had started to spray paint before remembering to take a picture. The one on the right is the orginal look. I will show you a picture of the final look later. I am going to use the lampshades that came with it until I find better ones.

Here is how it looked with the lampshade before the spray paint.

free ear plugs

what a crazy weekend! On Saturday day I threw a bridal shower from my cousin. Once the party was over we headed to MA. On Sunday we went to a friends wedding. I made my first bouquet of flowers for the bride. It was exciting, as soon as my hubby loads the pics, I will show you. Then drove back home last night. Today my family left our apartment and in a few tons of friends are coming over dinner. :-) I love keeping busy.

Anyways, back to the frugal stuff. Get a free pack of ear plugs. If you hate noise while you are trying to sleep, like me, then this is for you.

Dollar Tree

I have talked to alot of people last Sunday who all think that dollar tree isn't a great place to shop. They assume that everything is cheap quality and will break when you touch it. I am a big fan of the dollar tree. I have found so many items over the past year that are the same as the "as seen on tv" brand items for a dollar. I never have to pay full price for items because I know I will eventually find it at the dollar store.

I am throwing a bridal shower for my cousin on Saturday. As I was planning the party I decided I would check the dollar store for items. I got some boxes similar to these but actually look a lot better.

Click here!
These are $0.58 each I bought a pack of 10 for $1.00

Also, I bought plates, napkins, cups silver and white with petal design for $1.00 each. There are tons of decorations as well. I will try to add pictures as I am putting up the decorations tomorrow.

I will be going back tomorrow to get some balloons for the party. But whenever you think about throwing a party, check out the dollar store first. It is amazing how much money you can save if you go there first!

a frugal tip

I was watching hgtv the other, dreaming of what it would be like to own a house, and going crazy decorating, oh well. So they were showing a neat trick to get rid of crayon marks on the wall, a cheaper alternative to repainting. All you will need is toothpaste and a normal sponge. They put the toothpaste on the sponge and the crayon marks came off after a tad bit of scrubbing. Just don't tell you children how easy it is to remove their art off the wall.
