Best Deals for Monday 07/25/2011
Today's frugal tip is from Laurie: "We run a 50 pint dehumidifier in our basement when it feels damp. When the container collecting moisture in the bottom is full of water at the end of the day, instead of emptying it into a sink, I use the water collected to water plants, both outside (thirsty hydrangeas) and inside (houseplants)."

Not everyone is a fan of credit cards, but I am. I use the Discover More card to save an additional 5% on almost everything I buy. How much would you get back in a year if you got 5% back on everything? Groceries, gas, everything?
This is a card for those with excellent credit only. You'll need a score of at least 730 to apply. I have found that when I combine this card with sales both in-store, and online, plus coupon codes, and rebates I really feel like I am getting the most out of my money.

Spa quality bath sheets wrap you in luxury like nothing else can - and for $32 instead of $90 you can actually relax! Linens N Things is offering up this sale. Use the code Summer20 to get the additional discount with free shipping.
This is a chance to own true 1500 tc Egyptian Cotton sheets. Linens N Things has them clearanced out for $189.99 with free shipping (use the code Summer20 to get that extra 20% off today - the price drops to $151.99) Several colors are available. Queen, King and Cal King sizes are included in the sale. A quick note about 1500tc sheets. They start out very stiff (and with a weave like that they would have to). Like the linen sheets of old, they relax and soften with wear. And because of the thread count, they wear and wear and wear..pretty much forever.

I don't even know how text book prices are legal. I think there is a photo of a college textbook that shows up in the dictionary under the term "extortion."
