Cheap or FREE Family Fun!

I was cruising around checking out my favorite blogs this morning and I came across a great tip! I am sorry I did not see it yesterday, (i missed some great things we could have done yesterday!) Cincinnati Cents wrote a post about things for your kids to do next to nothing or, even sometimes, NOTHING! I love free things, so I am marking my calender for sure! I am going to link to the post here, so please be sure and check it out! It is worth it!!!!
Thanks Cincinnati Cents!
As always, be sure to call your local store, just to be sure they are hosting the events!

Give Away!

Thrifty & Chic Mom is running a very cute give away at her blog. It is for "Whimsical Stork" a very cute company run by moms! They have things for babies as well as for mom, that are the sweetest and cutest things! They are giving away a "Minky Bunny", looks so cute and soft! Be sure to stop by here and comment to enter!
Good Luck!

Meijer Mealbox

I have been seeing a little about the "Meijer Mealbox" but I did not know exactly what it did. Well, I played around a bit and I must say I love it! It is a meal planning tool that allows you to click and drag from their recipes (there are tons!) to the days of the week (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Some categories include, budget friendly, appetizers, lunch, breakfast, parties, 30 minute, etc. Then it compiles your shopping list for you! It allows you to delete items, if you already have them, and shows you what is on special and has coupons right there! So, for those of you who are short on time, or a bit scatter-brained like me, it really helps to organize your week.. I am going to try it out!

I have put it at the bottom of this page, so play with it, try it out and let us know what you think! I was thinking you could use this for any grocery store as well, get your menu and print out your grocery list. You won't know specials at your grocery store, but at least the ingredients will be packed for you on a nice organized list!!!
