I live in small town Iowa.
(Read more about that here: Going to Town.)
Outside of Walmart, the farm store and the good ol’ “five and dime,” decent shopping is rather scarce around here. You have to drive at least a good hour if you’re looking to burn serious cash and I don’t get to the city nearly as often as I’d like. Consequently, I do a lot of shopping online… especially at Christmas. (Armies of greedy people make me grumpy.)
Friday, December 16 marks the 4th annual Free Shipping Day! Over 2,000 merchants are participating. A few that caught my eye in are: Best Buy, Radioshack, Kohl’s, Ulta, Snapfish, Apple Store, Walgreen’s, Ghirardelli Chocolates, Melissa & Doug, Macy’s, Helzberg, and Scheel’s, just to name a few.
You can check it out here: Free Shipping Day.

If you have Christmas shopping left to do, consider holding off until December 16 to save some extra cash. (And if it were me, I’d use the extra to go splurge on an afternoon Starbucks…)
BONUS: More free Christmas music!!!! Head on over to www.Amazon.com for the 25 Days of Free Christmas Music event. (My favorite free song so far is Celtic Woman’s Ave Maria.)
Blue Jeans & Coffee Beans.
