My husband has been researching more about our family tree lately. This family tree frame would be a great Father's Day gift. Right now, on Red Envelope, it is $40 off the original price, plus there are other 10% and 15% off your order codes available.

Buy This, Not That: Mad For Madras

These madras shorts are adorable; they are also $38. The all blue patchwork shorts (available in sizes 4, 5, and 10) are only $12.74. Or you can score this pair for $19.50. If you opt for the less expensive shorts, you can snag a polo and a pair of flip flops to complete the look and still spend less than $38!

Cheap and Cheerful wants to know: Where do you do your summer shopping? When do you start stocking up on shorts, shirts and sandals?

Deal of the Day: Imaginenext Batman Set

While it is wrapped up for Easter in a faux basket made of cardboard, it will still make the perfect "Birthday for Frances" gift for my son. Original price: $14.99. My price: $3.74. A gift for the big brother on his little sister's birthday: priceless. I found this in the Easter clearance aisle at Target. Everything was 50% - 75% off.

Deal of the Day: Birthday Tee for Your 1 Year Old

I see adorable tees like this in stores and online for MUCH more. These soft Circo tees are only $4. And, after all, it is going to be smeared with chocolate frosting at the end of the party!

Deal of the Day: $5.99 Christmas Stockings

While you're probably thinking more about splashing in the pool than about Christmas stockings, I could not resist posting this deal. Click here to see adorable fleece stockings for only $5.99.

Land's End Overstocks has some amazing deals right now: lunch boxes and bags for 50% off, infant sun hats for $3.99, and tons of sheets, towels, and luggage at steep discounts.

Cheap and Cheerful Cooking: Bake much?

Super cake mix sale going on right now at Safeway! Betty Crocker cake mix is just $.69 each if you buy 4 and icing is 2/$3. Plus, I had three coupons for Betty Crocker products ($.75, $.50, and $.50) which all scanned. Grand total: $7.01. That's 96 cupcakes for less than a dozen at your local bakery.
I love using "Cake Mix Doctor" type recipes to dress up these plain mixes. Anyone have a good one for carrot cake mix and cream cheese frosting? I'd love to know!
