Nothing is more fun that having the bag customized with a photo that goes along with your "theme". I am getting this to use as a "gift basket" for Christmas -- for one of the grandparents - with pics of Miss Sarah on it. :) Here is a bonus: if you are new to York Photos - you also get 40 FREE prints!

It looks like there will be 3 inserts in the paper this weekend ... a Proctor & Gamble, a SmartSource and a Red Plum. LOTS of fun coupons like Advil, Ball Canning, Kraft and more! You can check out what coupons are on the national line up -- but keep in mind that we may see slightly different ones in our own area. Want more coupons? Here is an easy way to get them: COUPON CLIPPING SERVICES You can always use a clipping service to get more insert coupons or ones that were not available in your local paper . I recommend these 4 sites   Now that the Dollar Tree no longer carries the Sunday paper for $1.00 - it's time to talk discount subscriptions.

Frugal Friday: $1,000 Lunch Bags!

This is my $1,000 lunch bag set. Sound impossible? It doesn't COST $1,000 but it can save your family $1,000 or more! Just think about it: If you work outside the home and you buy lunch out almost every day... If you only spend $8.00 a day on lunch and a soda, get two weeks of vacation a year, that is 50 weeks at $40 a week...for a grand total of $2,000 a year with nothing to show for it! If you were to bring your lunch from home, use up some leftovers and your own juice/tea, you could easily save $1,000 or more a year. If you are married, DOUBLE that savings!! We haven’t even added in breaks or afternoon chocolate pick-me ups… However, if you brown bag it and use plastic wrap, foil, zippy bags and so on, four of those items plus the brown bag is only about $.1.15 a day that you throw away. That adds up to about $359 per person, per year in the trash! (Let's not get started on how bad that is for land fills, etc...) That is about $4,300 over 12 years o

Weekend Fun

We are entering that "akward" time of year where summer is almost over but fall hasn't started yet. Soon we will have things back like Kids at the Rotunda and family friendly events at the Waisman Center...but there will be little "new" stuff over the next couple of weeks. All Weekend:   Middleton Good Neighbor Festival at Fireman's Park. Like most smaller festivals, this give back a lot to the local community - and is usually more affordable than the big fairs...the parade is on Sunday. See more at Saturday, August 25th The Dane County Farmer's Market on the Square!!!! Squeaky Cheese Curds, Baked goods, spring produce AND the beautiful downtown Madison - what more could you ask for? Chemistry Fun at UW Space Place Space Place family workshops are offered every Saturday at 10 a.m. for children ages 6-10 and their parents. The workshops are free and open to the public. No registration is req

DIY Thursday - Packing For a Trip

Yes, I am one of those crazy people. (But you know that, if you have been following for a while).  I like to be fully packed almost a week before a trip  instead of being like my husband who tosses things into a bag the day before he leaves. Now, I never seem to find myself out shopping for an item that I forget to pack, but remember a few trips with him... You see a picture of Miss Sarah's suitcase for our 10 day Disney trek. In the top, we have the 3 pairs of shoes - each stuffed with either socks, sunglasses or her jewelry for the trip, her swimsuit, goggles and nightgown too. In the bottom are her outfits, and bedtime stuff (bible, chapter book, glow bracelets, night light and sound machine). Her outfits are individually bagged and complete - from undies to hair accessories. Even the Princess Outfit she plans to wear to Epcot is bagged. I do this for a few reasons: Bed Bugs. I have posted on the epidemic before and ALWAYS check

Change Your Future Giveaway!

Who has a dream ... -To increase their Earnings? -To Travel? -To be Debt Free? -To take their family on a Vacation? -To own their own Home? -To own their own Business? -To have a brand New Car? -To help other people achieve their Dreams? -To pay for a College Education?

I have been with Tupperware for 20 years now and have seen a LOT of people make their dreams come true - here are a few that come to mind: Linda. She was married, with two children, and had no dental insurance. Her teeth were literally falling out of her head and she needed dental work, that they couldn't afford. She had a goal, we made a plan and she made it happen. To this day, she has the best smile I have ever seen! Mary. She was married, they had five children and $40,000 in credit card debt.

Epcot Character Meetups This Year And Tips

First of all, I didn't think it was any where near as busy as Magic Kingdom! It was SOOO much easier to get a picture with a character as the lines were shorter. We started with a character breakfast at the Norwegian Castle of Epcot. While I cringed at the fact that it was $96 for the three of us, for breakfast, before tipping -- it was something she has been saving for and looking forward to. We caught Aurora Cinderella...  Snow White... Ariel...  They even sent out a special cupcake for her...complete with gummy bears. Just what every mom wants to see ingested first thing in the morning, LOL!  Again, it was the fabulous Merida dress that went right back to the zippy bag and back pack when we were done with the brunch. By the way, the food was amazing. A buffet of yogurt, smoked salmon, fresh fruit, pastries and more - then they brought a "hot plate" to your table with eggs, bacon, sausage and a cheesy potato bake. Add in OJ and cof
