This week in deals: 40% off everything at Ann Taylor LOFT and more


It's Spring break this week (at least for Los Angeles Unified School District) and Easter Sunday is coming up this weekend. What are your plans for Spring break and Easter?

In lieu of sending my daughter to camp for 1 week, I'm having her stay at home with me. In order to make sure she isn't bored throughout the day, I made a mini-camp schedule filled with arts, crafts, sports and gardening. Not only will this keep my daughter happy during her break, I'll be happy because I've saved $500 on camp costs.

For Easter, the kids will be participating in an egg hunt which they always look forward to. Instead of doing it in my own home, I take them to a local event and pay $5 for each of them. Because I do this, I save about $40, a day's worth of time and energy, plus the kids enjoy it more because they have a friendly competition with kids their own age.

Since I get to save money on Spring camp and the Easter egg hunt, this week I'm going down my list of birthday gifts I need to purchase and actually purchase them. To get things started, I've got this week's top 5 deals for you:
