Finding coupon codes that work when shopping--my review of

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.

Do you shop on-line and search for the latest deals for certain sites? Then always wonder if the code is still working? Or perhaps go into the store but search for coupons first? Or maybe you are one of those people who do not want to give your email out to get the coupons. (I have a Hotmail account for businesses that I only check when I want a coupon.) However I have recently discovered
Dealspotr makes getting coupons, promo codes and deals so much easier. It is  a site that is crowdsourced. People literally enter in the codes and sales when they get notification of one and other people validate the sale. Plus people post a picture of the deal either working or the banner with the details. Plus you earn rewards for posting and validating so people are doing it all the time!!

Schools today usually request non-food Valentines. Does yours? I know Hazel's does and there is always at least one family if not more in her class that pays no attention. And her class has someone with severe food allergies. Of course the candy Valentines are so easy since you can buy them everywhere for pretty cheap. Today I am going to share some non-food Valentine ideas and printables to go with items you can order from Dollar Tree.
