This week in deals: $5 off your Home Depot purchase over $50


The flowers are blooming, the grass is greener and the sun is shining brighter. While the first day of Spring is only a few weeks away, I'm ready to get started with making some changes around the house now!

On top of my to-do list was to remove the rooster wallpaper that accents my dining room (an inherited design element from the previous owners). Not quite my taste and totally does not match our furniture. So this past weekend, I decided to remove the wallpaper on my own.

The first wall came out perfect, but the second wall was a mess. I nearly took down the entire wall with it. The plaster was crumbling and I was sweating bullets wondering what I would say to my husband, "Honey, I know that we just got a new roof, new plumbing, new vents, but guess what...the wall's coming down". Ahh!

I took a picture and rushed to Home Depot and what I thought was a disaster only cost me $17 to fix. Yay! If it's not a major construction job, I would try a DIY solution. While I did have my moment of "my husband is going to kill me", in the end, I saved myself about $1000 in wallpaper removal service.

Here are this week's top five deals: 

Deal #1: If I was able to make my purchase online this weekend, I would have saved $5 off $50 or more with this coupon from Home Depot. The steamer alone cost a little over $50 with tax. Expires 3/9/2013.

Deal #2: This year, I have been a little early on my spring cleaning. To make it easier on myself, I have been trying to take it closet by closet. While I was sorting through our shoe closet, I found a lot of shoes that were either too small for my kids or had holes all over it. Right now, you can save 30% off your entire purchase with this coupon from Payless ShoesExpires 3/10/2013.

Deal #3: 
Do you love deal sites? What if your city is not listed on a larger deal site like Groupon or Living Social? You should try using this coupon from DealChicken to get $10 off your purchase over $30 at a city near you or close to you. From looking at their listed cities, they cater towards the "other" cities. They don't have major cities like Los Angeles, New York City or Miami, but they have Palm Springs, Ithaca and Tallahassee listed. Expires 3/17/2013.

Deal #4:
 It's been cold here in sunny Southern California and my skin has had a very rough winter. With this coupon from Ahava, you can save 40% off your purchase of 4 items or more. Get your skin back on track! Expires 3/08/2013.

Deal #5: It's all about making small changes to your home on a budget to get a fresh new look for the year. Use this coupon from Horchow to get 30% off your entire purchase during the Friends and Family sale. Expires 3/7/2013.

There's always opportunities to save money. Just plan ahead, do your price research online and make sure you have your coupons ready, both online and printables. Come back next week when I bring you 5 more incredible deals!
