Itâ€™s been a while since I have done a How Toâ€™s Day so I thought I would tell you about a new smart phone app that I found that is really handy!
Itâ€™s called Favado. It is an app that you can use to match up sales with coupons at your favorite stores so you can save even more money.. and we all know what that means!! More money for YARN!!!
But seriously.. this app is great.. if you have a smart phone I HIGHLY encourage you to check it out! With Thanksgiving coming up here is a little info graphic on what how much you can save!
There are several stores in the database, including national stores and a whole lot of local chains as well. I even used this app to see what was on sale at the local store when I recently went up to New York state!
Every little bit counts!!! Remember..the more you save on your groceries,the more cash you have to add to your stash!!!
Just got this interesting bit of news:
You can get a lot of yarn at Knit Picks for $25 and free needles to boot! If you havenâ€™t tried their yarn this would be an excellent time to start!! I highly recommend their Wool of the Andes worsted weight! Itâ€™s very nice!
I got some news that there is a sale on Authentic Knitting Boards this weekend! Hereâ€™s the skinny:
â€œThis weekend only, June 3-5, get 30% off of the 18" Knitting Board. This popular knitting board goes on sale very rarely, so hurry to get this great deal. â€œ
They are also planning on collecting items for donation as well: Hereâ€™s the info on that!
â€œWe are once again planning a huge donation of hand knitted goods for our hospitalized veterans as well as to their families. We also want to send another box of warm goods to the childrenâ€™s native home in North Dakota. If you want to specify which donation group you want your items to go to, just specify with a note. We will donate in the name of Knitting Loom Knitters/USA, or you can put in a personal note to go along with your gifts. You are also welcome to attach a small note to each item. Your donated items can be made on any type of loom.
We would like to ship these boxes out by the first of October, 2011. This way they can be enjoyed for the entire colder season. Please send items to us at the below address. Thank you for your generosity and sharing spirit.â€
