Amazon: Twin-Over-Full Metal Bunk Bed for $149 + FREE shipping


Need to update your kids’ bedroom with some bunk beds? Right now Amazon has the Dorel Twin-Over-Full Bunk Bed in black, silver, or white for $149 + free shipping, which is the lowest price it’s been.

Eventually my husband and I plan to move all three of our girls into the same bedroom (we only have a three-bedroom house for six people so our options are pretty limited). This is *exactly* the type of bed I’m looking for. I like how simple and open it is.

Features include:

  • Twin-sized bunk bed over full-sized bed
  • Metal frame
  • Secured side ladder
  • Safety rails on top bunk
  • Measures 57″ x 78″ x 59″

As always, prices on Amazon can change quickly and without notice, so head to Amazon to check it out ASAP!

Best Deals at Target – No Coupons Needed {Only Your Smartphone!}


Jump to the deals!

I (Laura) live in the land of Target, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to run into Target for “just one thing” here or there. Since I am the queen of efficiency, I hate to let a savings opportunity go to waste, but I usually haven’t clipped any coupons before heading to Target since it’s not in my normal routine.

I’ve often wondered what the best Target deals are that I can get without using coupons (just my smartphone), but I couldn’t find a list of only these deals anywhere, so…why not start my own? I ran the idea by Angela and she said “go for it,” so…here we go!

The deals listed here are either “good enough” prices on their own without using coupons, or they use a combination of Target Cartwheel, Target mobile coupons, or cash back apps like Ibotta or SavingStar to help you save. No scissors required, ya’ll.

Tips for Shopping at Target Without Coupons

A couple things to keep in mind:

  • Target REDcard. If you’re not already using a REDcard when shopping at Target, why not? You’ll automatically save an extra 5% on everything in the store, plus you’ll get FREE shipping on orders placed at It’s easy to sign up, and credit and debit options are available.
  • Cartwheel. Before using this list, you’ll want to download the Cartwheel app to your smartphone. Cartwheel savings can be stacked with sale prices and any cash back offers, plus as you’re shopping, you can scan the bar codes of items you’re interested in to see if any current Cartwheel offers apply to them.
  • Ibotta. Ibotta is the most commonly used cash back app. After making your purchases, you’ll need to log in to the app and select the applicable offers, then take pictures of your receipt and submit it to Ibotta. Within 24-48 hours they’ll add the credit to your Ibotta account which you can cash out after reaching a minimum threshold. Another cashback app that is handy to already have downloaded is Checkout 51.
  • SavingStar. This list doesn’t include printable or insert coupons, but it does include SavingStar offers as they can be added via your smartphone. Again, you’ll need to take pictures of your receipt and submit them to SavingStar to see the credit in your account.
