This week in deals: 30% off your purchase at Keds


Are you up to anything this week? If you haven't already done so, it's probably a good time to organize everything you got in the mail for your taxes. I dedicated a majority of my Sunday (this past weekend) to get everything in order for my tax guy.

While I was looking through my spendings for 2012, it made me re-look at the different areas I could work on for 2013.

If you have credit cards, make sure you look at your year-end statements because they'll breakdown your spendings and put them on a graph. Not only will you see the percentage on a pie, you'll get a clear idea of your financial portfolio for the year. If you need to cut-back on some things, this statement will help you make a quick chop here and there.

But of course, you'll still have to make purchases throughout the year. It's all about making smart purchases by researching, price comparing and using coupons. To get you started, here are this week's top five deals: 

Deal #1:
 Do you remember the days of trying to buy sneakers with the blue label at the back? I remember if you didn't, you would be considered not "in" with the crowd at school. Well, now you can save 30% on your own sneakers with the blue label by using this coupon from Keds. Plus, you get free shipping with your purchase. Expires 3/31/2013.

Deal #2: It's that time of the year when your children are invited to a lot of birthday parties. Not only is it my daughter's birthday this month, two of her closest friends are also celebrating theirs. I will be taking advantage of this coupon from Mattel Shop to save 20% on my purchase (they love their Barbies). Expires 3/17/2013.

Deal #3: Whether you need clothes, household items, makeup, jewelry or shoes, take advantage of thiscoupon from Macy's that takes an extra 20% off most departments. If you don't want to bother shopping from store to store, this place is a one stop shop. I always get the best deals here ! Expires 3/17/2013.

Deal #4: Like I said, it's time to get the ball rolling on your taxes. If you have a simple tax filing that doesn't require a lot of forms and thought process, get your free tax preparation at Turbo Tax (free Federal only). When I didn't have a house or write-offs and forms to deal with, I use to use this service myself and I always got a good chunk of change back. Limited time offer.

Deal #5: Have you thrown out all the empty bottles of lotion and need to stock up on new ones? Starting today, use this coupon from Bath & Body Works to save 20% off your entire purchase. Expires 3/31/2013.

Get your tax stuff ready, analyze last year's spendings and if you need to, edit this year's financial road map. See you next week when I bring you five more incredible deals!
