I got her these super cute Robot salt and pepper shakers from Thinkgeek.com but to give her credit, she had added them to her Amazon wishlist so I already knew what sorts of awesomeness she was into.
I went to a website much like this one Coupons
and found a coupon code for $5 off of a $30 purchase at Think Geek. The salt and pepper shakers were only $25 so I decided to get something else that was $5. After looking around and not finding much I needed I finally settled on this awesome Zombie Wrapping Paper. Since it was technically free, it was well worth the (nothing) it cost me to get the fun reaction of Shasta seeing her birthday present wrapped in it.
And speaking of things that cost nothing, as of today I am finished with all of my birthday shopping for my nieces and nephews for the rest of the year. I bought my last gift at Toys R Us. It was on clearance for $9.99 and I had $10 in cash back rewards coupons left (I have already used the rest for some of my other nieces gifts) so I got this game for nothing - they just put it in a bag for me - that is fun times!
I also got my drink at Chipotle free because they didn't hear me ask for it.That was an awesome dollar I saved. :D So technically, you could just mumble when you ask for your drink in order to save money, but that is immoral. If the idea sounded awesome to you and not at all sketchy, please consult your nearest religious authority and ask for guidance. Or your mom. Something.
