A word to the wise– do NOT go nuts during the tax free holiday in your state– on average, you’re saving a paltry 6-7%– so if the price (exclusive of tax) isn’t fabuLESS don’t let the allure of tax FREE compel you to buy something that you otherwise wouldn’t!

Stay fabuLESS– and tax FREE!

Get FabuLESSly Organized! Whip your pantry in shape!

Here’s a sneak peek into my pantry– it’s not huge by any stretch of the imagination nor is it busting at the seams! But I do have a nice assortment of basics– including grains and ‘starches’ like quinoa, whole wheat pasta, whole wheat couscous, bulgar wheat, millet, brown rice, and more– and ingredients for sauces like artichokes, roasted peppers, coconut milk, tomato paste, stone ground mustard and more– some canned items like diced tomatoes, chickpeas and tuna fish.  PLUS a variety of snacks that the kids can grab and go– from cereal to Craisins to granola to no sugar applesauce (LOTS and lots of applesauce!)

Since I know that many of the same fabuLESS deals will repeat over and over again, there’s no need to stock WAY up– this is ALL of the shelf stable food I have (except for whole bean coffee– which is stored in a cabinet above the coffee maker– and popcorn kernels which is stored with the air popper.)

Surprised at the size of my stash? Most people assume that I have a HUGE pantry and that I’m stocked up for Armageddon– but it’s really quite small, rational and manageable!

Happy pantry stockpiling!

Exclusive fabuLESS discount: Thirty One Gifts: FREE shipping and FREE embroidery for ANY sized order PLUS 10% off your ENTIRE order if you spend $60+, ends 8/13/10 at 10pm EST.

Get FREE shipping and FREE embroidery on ANY sized order PLUS 10% off your ENTIRE order if you spend $60+– this offer is ONLY available here and only through Kelly– not on the main Thirty One Gifts website or through any other consultant!

I *love* my All-In-One organizers, I have TWO– one is for all of my coupon stuff– it holds my coupon inserts plus scissors, pens, etc– and the other is for all of my bills (that one says UNfabuLESS!)

How to order:

1) Order Online: Click HERE and click “shop now” (hint: if you want to see what the other patterns/color combinations look like, take a look at the catalog)– you will NOT see the discount in your cart BUT your credit card will NOT be charged until Kelly adjusts your total to reflect the FREE shipping and FREE emboridery for ANY order plus an additional 10% off if you ordered $60+

2) Order via phone or email: Shop the catalogs– click HERE and then click on “View Our Catalog” and email your order to Kelly at kellyjferg@hotmail.com or call her at (402)278-1742.  She will then add the FREE shipping, FREE embroidery and the discount if you spend $60+, you can pay via debit or credit card.

My all time FAVORITE items are the insulated totes– not only would the smaller ones be perfect for snacks and lunches– the larger ones are ideal for taking groceries home (WITHOUT having to rush home! Perfect for the summer and fall months– or year round in warm climates!)– there are a number of sizes to choose from– from snack size to HUGE!

Thirty One Gifts has a TON of variety– everything from tote bags to backpacks for toddlers to storage/organization for your car and home– to personalized stationery, and everything in between!

Pretty much everything in their catalog would make a great shower gift, holiday gift, or teachers’ gift– or even as a gift for yourself 😉


If you have ANY questions or would like to sell Thirty One Gifts yourself, contact Kelly at kellyjferg@hotmail.com or call her at (402)278-1742.

Happy Thirty One Gifts-ing!

Restaurant.com: Get a $25 gift certificate for only $2 (80% off!), expires 8/16/10.

Click HERE and use code: BIG (Enter code and hit “Apply” at checkout!)

This is as low as these go– so STOCK up at this price!

As always, check the restrictions– if there are any– for each restaurant that you select, but as long as you can live with the restrictions (i.e. must spend $35, valid only for dine in, etc)– it’s a fabuLESS way to try new restaurants or frequent old favorites.

And, here’s a tip– if the restaurant that you want is sold out of gift certificates, buy a ‘gift’ gift certificate– and then you can use that ‘gift’ gift certificate to purchase the restaurant of your choosing whenever it’s back in stock.

Gift certificates are valid for a year and are available to be used immediately.

Click HERE or sweeten your savings and click through ebates to get an additional 15% cashback, if you’re not already signed up for ebates, click HERE to do so and start getting cashback from over 1000 stores. It only takes 15 seconds to sign up and you’ll get a $5 signup bonus (I’ll get one too, whoohoo!)

Happy Restaurant.com-ing!

Get fabuLESSly Organized! Instead of a million cookbooks, have ONE recipe binder instead!

I find recipes EVERYWHERE… in magazines, in the newspaper, from friends, from fans, plus I make some up, too!

I have a 3 ring binder– I use dividers to separate each section (i.e. beef/chicken/seafood/soups/marinades, etc) and clear sheet protectors to hold each recipe.  The clear sheet protectors not only helps me add new recipes easily, it also protects the recipes from the inevitable mishaps that happen in any kitchen! 

With all of the fabuLESS back to school specials on school supplies– NOW would be a fabuLESS time to get the supplies needed to get your OWN recipe binder together!

Happy recipe binder-ing!
