I am putting together a few posts on couponing that I will be posting in the next week. But I would like to make one suggestion first….
I don’t feed my pets Eukanuba because it costs too much! But if you do here is a $5 coupon they will mail to you. Good for you spending the extra for your pets! Honestly, I wish I could!
Blanket forts, remember these? Don’t forget about them! This beautiful fort in my playroom was worked on by 5 of my children. It kept them occupied for 6 hours, the best part? There was no fighting for 5 hours and 58 min of that! They worked so hard and drug so much stuff out, but it was worth it. They had a blast. At one point it was a restaurant, they were taking food orders. It was a movie theater and a bear cave. I forget to let them do this kind of stuff!
Ah, Chic-fil-A! I will not live anywhere there is not a Chic-fil-A I am completely addicted to their diet lemonade…. Last summer they had a special that if you dressed like a cow you got a free meal, including dessert and drink. I made this little deal last 2 days! I told the kids about it on Tuesday, we brainstormed ideas for the cheapest way to “dress like a cow, head to toe”. That whole day we worked on our costumes. They all dressed in black and white, we cut out ‘cow’ spots and taped them all over them. We printed off a Chic-fil-A signs and taped it to the front of them. Then we made paper plate masks for their faces. We worked on it all day and the kids had a blast, I also spent no money on it!
Drive in movies! Our drive in is almost 45min away, but worth it. We went last Saturday night and for $18 (for the 8 of us) saw two new releases, UP and Star Trek. We left at 6pm and got there about 7pm. The movie doesn’t start until dusk so we had time to eat the dinner I packed and play catch and run around. The movie started at about 8:30 the kids one was first. It was UP which was fantastic! Then a 30min. break. Most of the little kids were asleep by now and the ‘older’ movie started. By the time we got home it was 2am! But where else can you get 8 hours of entertainment for $18!
