I had a great day.
And thank you to Todd for making sure everyone who came by, knew how old I was . . .
And about the 40 thing . . . I am better today. Knowing I can not change it . . . I have just decided to stay young despite the actual chronological number.

I'm kind of amazed how much I enjoyed it. I have done something similar with a couple of my older kids when they were young and I remember it being so stressful and dreading my turn to come around.
So . . . is it the wisdom of years that made this time around so much better or the fact that the kids were so great because they are being raised by these amazing mothers (and fathers)? I'd like to think it is some of both.
We learned about the letter P today with a People Parade and a Picnic with Pickles, Pretzels, Peanut Butter, Pancakes, Pineapple, and Popcorn. We played with Play dough and picked Pumpkins in the Pumpkin Patch.I had a great time. I hope the kids did too.

Although I do not want my blog to become a money saving blog altogether, I do look for bargains almost everyday and thought it might be fun to include a little here.
I am going to try and post my favorite deals there, if I can keep up. If this new addition just magically disappears one day in the near or distant future, you will all know that it was too much for me to keep up on.
Happy Savings to All!

I usually just look for the coupon deals, Walgreens and Rite Aid deals, freebies, and samples, and then I just skim over everything else.
Freebies 4 Mom
Money Saving Mom
The Cent sible Sawyer
And expounding on some of my other favorites . . .
Walgreen's EasySaver Catalog has some great deals each month. We received around $50 in free stuff last month and the month before using their rebates. This month there is only a few freebies.
Rite Aid also has many rebates each month but takes more time and effort to get a good deal or free item.
Craigs list is classifieds, better than your neighborhood newspaper.
Freecyle.org I mentioned this in a recent blog.
Sisterly Savings and Thrifty Jinxy (blog links listed above) usually list the free Redbox Codes on Mondays.
It followed him from school one day. . .
We now have a cat . . .
named Mary . . .

He took it back. And she came back a again. And didn't leave.
