Free Coupon: Premium Outlet VIP coupon

Mdm Cheapo has not gotten a chance to head to Johor Premium Outlets (JPO). But would definitely hope to check it out despite the many adverse comments on it being not worth it. 
From experience at the US premium outlets, it is always better to head there during special occassions, Mother's Day Sale, National Day Sale etc. 
Same as the USA Premium Outlet, JPO has the VIP shoppers' club where you can print a voucher to get FREE VIP coupon book which gives you additional discounts, sometimes includes the sales merchandise too!

And for all who are planning to head to the USA Premium outlets, you MUST join the VIP club. Not only you get a free VIP coupon book voucher, there are lots of exclusive online vouchers which you can print and the discounts are even more fantastic then the VIP coupon book. Imagine getting 20% off an already-50% off item. Awwwww... i miss those days so so much!

DIY - 4 step CNY Decorations!

Well, instead of posting best deals to buy new year decorations, I shall share with everyone how to make your very own for FREE! 
This is also when you will start to notice the ang baos your children collect and use them for next year's deco. I always collect the old ang bao and when i see those with lots of gold on them I get excited as they make very good candidates to make CNY decorations. 

Here's a very simple one for the plants & pussy willow you have at home. Enjoy:

*Mdm Cheapo claims proudly: I have laminated ones which i have used & re-used for 3 years now. 

For the very common ang bao with the "Fu", do this:

This is simple enough to even get your kids to help with if you have ang baos with simple straight line patterns to cut. Keep a look out for the CNY promo letters/brochures/calendars that you receive, they are good for this too!

Free Vouchers: $5 Vouchers on MyMailMoment

After the NTUC vouchers were no longer available on mymailmoment, I was depressed for the longest time... So Mdm Cheapo wrote to Singpost to inquire "Where are the NTUC vouchers?"

Apparently the vouchers are on a first-come-first-serve basis and if they go out of stock, you need to wait till the next time they re-stock. 

Well, the good news is the NTUC vouchers are BACK!!! *Wide Smiles*
