The school year has finally kicked off for us Angelenos. Yay! Since I still haven't received the official list of school supplies needed, I am glad that all the Back to School sales are still going on.
As any school-aged parent knows, Back to School spending does not stop with school supplies and clothing because there are other associated costs throughout the school year. Last year, I had to pay for a portion of the field trips, chip in on monthly beverage fees, provide monthly snacks, bought teacher's gifts and the list goes on.
If you just started the school year and want additional Back to School ideas, our DealPros are awesome at doing just that. If you're not interested in anything school related, they also have tips on reducing your cable bill, making popcorn out of the wok and more.
The free stuff keeps coming this Christmas! My favorite from the list this week is the free video that is emailed from Santa to your child. You get to enter their name, upload a photo, and pick all the good deeds they have done through out the year. Then they get all put together in your video from Santa.
Amazon is giving away free Christmas music downloads everyday until 12/25. If you prefer, 'A Christmas Carol' is free to download. There are a couple of new craft e-books this week if you're looking to create the perfect gift.
Bella Swan and Edward Cullen finally got married. The bittersweet human-vampire love affair now an eternal commitment, well, on Edward's part. He is immortal after all. Bella is human, mortal when she met Edward (if you want to know what happens to the couple, go see the movie, no spoilers here). To birth a human baby quite an undertaking, but birthing a half-vampire baby, well, that is just insane. Bella needs a break.
