2015 Birthday Treats

Here it is! Another year, another list. After my last post, I had a checkup that basically let me know baby could come any day now so I got caught up with that and forgot to put this list together. This morning I woke up to a comment asking if I was still compiling the list for 2015 and I figured what a good distraction it would be :). This year, due to bed rest, I didn’t make the most out of using these coupons but I tried to get a few online and one in store when I was in the area for an appointment. I am also going to separate them into categories this year. As usual, you can always sign up now for next year if you missed out on March but this should get you a treat or two in time for April if it’s your birth month :). My birthday is February 25th and you can use this as a reference even though I will add dates of validity below. Also, you can click on the name of each company to be taken to their website.

Let’s begin!

As you can see I didn’t get to take advantage of most of these coupons like I normally do, but I’m happy with what I did manage to get. I plan to use the Keds and Converse coupons very soon as they are still available for use and I absolutely love sneakers from them.

Here’s my round belly on my birthday at just about 36 weeks.
