I’ve put a list together of unique, affordable gifts to help you if you’re totally clueless on what to buy your friends and family!

Eleni’s Cookies – Not only are these cookies tasty, you get to decorate them! If you buy any of their Color Me! cookies, you can decorate them using their markers with edible ink. I would have loved these as a kid – who am I kidding? I would still have fun coloring my food!

CVS Black Friday Couponing Plan – November 24, 2016

CVS Couponing Plan - November 24, 2016 (BLACK FRIDAY!) from 20 Something Couponer

This CVS Black Friday couponing plan is a good one! I’ve worked really hard trying to get the most out of my Extrabucks while spending a minimal amount out of pocket. After a lot of figuring and switching around, if all goes well with this plan, I will have only spent $1.45 OOP and I will walk away with $20.15 EB to use towards my next shopping trip.

I split it up into two different transactions to get the most from my money. However, sometimes when a store is crowded, I get flustered and end up doing one transaction because I’m so scared everyone else will be mad at me for holding up the line. I don’t think this will be the case this year, I’m determined to stand my ground! I need to get the best deals so I can show my readers how great couponing can be!

I will have $23.99 EB going into this Thanksgiving/Black Friday CVS shopping trip, so please remember that as you read the plan. The following is what I plan to buy and if you’re a beginning couponer, use this as a guideline. There are other great deals at CVS, see for yourself here. Also, if you’re new here, EB means Extrabucks and OOP means out of pocket.
