Here's a few back to school freebies, including one for
teachers! If your a teacher Staples is giving out free gift bags
with bonus coupons to the first 100 teachers at each store. Check
the link for the date in your area for Staples Teacher Appreciation Day. I've posted this
next freebie before but I want to remind everyone about it. For the
entire month of August, JCPenney's is offering free haircuts to all kids K - 6th grade.
Appointments are recommended. The free haircuts are available at
all JCP Salons in the USA.
Happy Holidays from all of us here at Savings! December is only days away, and we're already planning for Christmas! Twinkling lights are being strung from the rooftops, the smell of pine and fir is in the air, and I can almost taste the peppermint hot chocolate that's a tradition on Christmas Eve.
At Savings.com, our company mission is to help others, and we realize that the holidays can be an especially tough time for many families. Continuing in last year's holiday tradition, we're thrilled to announce the launch of our 2011 Toys for Tots campaign! Over the next three
weeks, we'll donate $1 for every time you share a Savings.com Facebook
Summer is here, but sometimes the weather isn't always so nice. You can keep the kids occupied on rainy
days with all the free printables available. Kids will love coloring their favorite characters! There
is even a printable from Disney where you can place your child into the story.
Chuck E. Cheese has a printable rewards calendar you can use for summer chores.
Fisher Price has printable greeting cards for kids to color. You have a lot
to choose from: Cars 2, My Little Pony, Kung Fu Panda, Ratatouille, Yo Gabba Gabba and more.
Make sure you have plenty of ink and paper so you can start printing!
The living room, the kid's room, the garage, the office, and even my
bedroom were full of children's toys. Fearfully I was anticipating the
next wave of toys during the holiday season which is just around the
corner. I came up with a plan to clear some of the clutter and it has
surprisingly worked for my six and eight year-old children. My kids want a
trampoline and have agreed to sell their old toys to fund it. So, we've
been weeding through teddy bears, dinosaurs and Winnie-the-Pooh DVDs.
Through trial and error I've found some good ways to sell used toys.
Fresh from spending over $55 at the movie theater to watch Toy Story 3 in 3D today, I am here to write this week's Frugal Family post. I could talk about how we saved money by opting for the matinee, but the reality is that spending $38 for movie tickets is not exactly frugality at its finest. The movie was excellent and the 3D effects were totally worth the extra money we paid to rent glasses, but the experience served as a reminder of why theater outings continue to be a rare treat for my family.
Way back in 1998 (How did that happen so fast?) a small
child got a personalized storybook all his own. Sure it was cute to
have his name featured in the story, but his parents immediately
thought, "We can totally do better..."
Which brings us to our Featured Store: I See Me.
