Best Deals for Wednesday 10/20/2010

Good morning! 

We've had some wonderful frugal tips submissions this week. A big thank you to everyone who sent them in; we will be running them all in the next few days.

Today's frugal tip comes from Kathleen O'Brien:

Rather than buy a face wash and an exfoliator I just add about an 1/8 of a teaspoon of sugar to my squirt of face wash before I wash my face. Works beautifully!

Thanks Kathleen!
