Groupon - A New Awesome Deal Each Day!!

I signed up for Groupon a couple of weeks ago, and I can't tell you how much fun it
is to get my daily email and see what the awesome deal for the day is going to be! 
I have been amazed at some of the savings you can receive.

Each deal is geared toward your particular city, so CLICK HERE to find the ones near you.  I don't even live in a city, but I chose the nearest one (Atlanta) because we travel there frequently, and I knew I could still take advantage of some of the offers. 

Here's a few goodies that I've received:

**The other day I had the option to purchase $16 worth of food at Moe's for just $8.  Now that makes eating out affordable!

**Check this one out.  On this particular day the deal was a $35 Kid's Cooking Class at Young Chef's Academy for just $15.  (I'm actually bummed that I read this email too late to take advantage of the deal)

**And here's $250 worth of Get in Shape Boot Camp for $44

**Other deals have included spa packages, event tickets (including Atlanta Symphony at 52% off). 

Just click the box at the top of this post to sign up.  It's FREE and you never
know what kind of deals you are going to get.
Come back and leave a comment and let us know what you think.

Check that USA Weekend!

Here's a quick heads up that there will be a couple coupons in the USA Weekend (If your region gets that one!)  So before you get rid of it, get out your scissors for:

·        Save $1.00 on two cans of B&M Grandma’s® Recipe
·        Save $1.00 on four cans of B&M, any variety

- THanks to Jason over at USA Weekend for the heads up!

Summer Reading Program Round-Up!

(My kids reading together last summer)

Summer is upon us!
It’s hard to get kids to keep the reading momentum they gained from the school year going through the summer.   If you’re having trouble getting your kids to stay pumped about reading, or if you’re just looking for a way to reward them, here is a roundup of local Summer Reading Programs for you!!  Plus, you'll end up with some fun freebies (Books, restaurant coupons, game tokens, etc...) to help you break up the summer doldrums - Cheaply.


2010 Summer Library Reading Program

The details aren't posted online yet, but this is the gist, taken from last year's program:

  • Read a minimum of 10 books on any subject on your reading level and return your logbook on or before July 18, 2009. Pre-readers may participate by listening to at least 10 stories.
  • Our library gives out prize bags full of local restaurant coupons, passes to the Creative Discovery Museum, and small toys/treats!


Once the kids have that reading log filled out, download this one from the Barnes & Noble site to participate in their summer reading program and get a FREE BOOK at the end!!

Here’s How It Works:

1. Kids read any eight (8) books of their own choosing.
2. Kids write about their favorite part using the Summer Reading Journal.
3. Children bring their completed Reading Journal to a Barnes & Noble store between May 25th & September 6th, 2010.
4. They'll get a coupon for a FREE book! They choose from a list of exceptional paperback titles.*


Borders "Double-Dog Dare"

1) For kids 12 and under

2) Read 10 books & list them on THIS form

3) Bring complete form to Borders/Waldenbooks by 8/26 to get 1 of the selected titles FREE!


Looking for a fun way to reward your kids for their accomplishments? Download and print free reward calendars to help your kids develop in areas that are some of the most common challenges of parenting.
  1. Download and print out the calendar
  2. Mark the days off with a pen or sticker as your child accomplishes their goals
  3. Bring it in completed to Chuck E. Cheese’s and receive 10 free tokens as a reward

Well, you asked for it and we're giving it to you! 

Are you hosting a yard sale?  Would you like to spread the word to all our readers?  Well go right ahead!  Simply include your listing at the bottom of this post where it says:

For example:

Readers can then Mapquest your address if they're unsure - and head over to check out your wares!  Oh, I almost forgot, I (Jamie) am an avid yard-saler myself, so you'll probably see me show up if you're nearby!  Here's a Crash Course in "Yard Sailing" that I wrote awhile back- take a look if you're interested!

Nivea Lip Care "Kiss of Cherry" is my FAVORITE lip balm in the whole wide world!!  I don't wear lipstick, but this super-luxe chapstick is tinted with a youthful cherry color.  It makes my lips look like a pouty teenager - and smells yummy too!  So I'm so excited to see this new coupon on
