Little Passports: 60% Off First Month! Excellent Grandparent Gift Idea!

Every year, I typically put together a long list of thoughtful, educational, and (I think) unique Christmas gifts.  I don’t know that I’ll get the time to do it this year, but I’ll sprinkle a few of my thoughts down for you here and there.  This is one of them.

Because I’m a homeschooling Mom, I always try to find fun and educational toys, games, and books for my kids.  Some have been hits, others misses, but this is one that has had real staying power for both kids.  It was a gift bought by my mother (at my request) last Christmas for my middle girlie (age 7).  She loves to get mail, as most kids do, and we were looking for a fun way to supplement cultural and geography lessons.



Little Passports is a monthly subscription package that is a fun filled exploration kit sent by two travelers, Sam & Sofia.  They travel the world or in the US based on the kit you choose.   Initially, your child will receive the Explorer Kit.  This is a starter kit with a Passport, intro letter, and wall sized map for your child to track their travels.  Each subsequent monthly kit contains a craft, activities, stickers, and the like, along with a letter from Sam & Sofia. It’s so much fun.

Three subscriptions are available: Early Explorers for ages 3-5, World Edition for ages 6-10 and the USA Edition for ages 7-12.  I’m having Gram send the USA Edition for my son (age 11) this year.  Both kids will use it as they have the World Edition subscription.

If you think this is something your child might like, too, Little Passports is offering 60% off the first month subscription with the code BLACK60 at checkout.  It’s good through December 1st.  Boxes are as low as $11.95 per month when you pay in advance for a full year.

CVS: Freebies & Cheapies 11/29-12/5


Latest News


There are new total purchase ($3/$15, $5/$25, $6/$30) and % off coupons again this week!  If you haven’t, check your email for one from CVS on Thursday!

  Let me know what Big Red coupons you receive and I’ll add them to the matchups! 


General Information

This list is printable!

Here are some easy use notes for you.

You’ll see a check box next to the sale item.  You can check that box and it will add it to your printable list box in the bottom right corner of your screen.  When you’ve added all the items you want to buy to the list, you can click on the *My List* tab to print them.

CVS has also released a new corporate coupon policy.  Make sure you print a copy and take it with you when you shop.  If this is new to you, you can read more about the changes to Buy One Get One Free sales and coupons HERE. 

Keep in mind that CVS ads can be extremely regional.  You may find price variations in the sale items or they may not be on sale in your area at all.

I am now ONLY using online prices in my match-ups. I had been using my actual store prices, but that proved equally frustrating for many people. While I realize that online prices are also frustrating, they’re relatively accurate for some. Since they’re about the same in that regard, it’s easier to use online prices! For new items not yet in their online store, I will continue to use my store prices.

This list includes all the items under $1, most of the ECB deals and many, MANY more.  Because I’m still doing most of the ad,  every link isn’t tested, as I don’t buy everything that’s on sale and I’m too cheap to waste the ink. Let me know if one doesn’t work, if my math has taken a nose dive or I’ve missed a coupon somewhere.
