5 Tips On – How To Save On Family Outings



 family outings edited


1- Share when you can Look into sharing a membership to your local zoo, children’s museum or amusement park with a friend or another family member. By sharing the membership you will each get a card and most will allow a FREE guest (AKA you partner). This has saved us so much money, sometimes this is even cheaper for us than going only one time.

2- Bigger IS better  Many treats and drinks are much cheaper the bigger the size you get. A coffee or hot chocolate drink may be $2.85 for a small $3.15 for a medium and $3.40 for a large…. That’s only $.65 more for twice as much drink or …. The same as two smalls. After you get your large drink you can ask for extra cups and lids or some places like Starbucks are even be nice enough to split it up for you at no extra charge. In the end I would save $7.45 by getting 2 large drinks for my kids to split vs. getting  5 small.
I have done the same with ice cream…… get a triple scoop and ask for extra cups or cones. Rethink kids meals too….. Sometimes getting an adult meal to split may be the better choice than kids meals.

3- Check out you local happenings Our area is filled with many seasonal events and festivals. They are FREE and exciting. You can find great value to going to these……they can offer hours of entertainment, sometimes even FREE food, little freebies and possibly raffles and prizes all while maybe discovering a new area in your hometown.

4- Check on line - Before you go out of town check on-line. By going to Groupon or Livingsocial you may find a fun activity or restaurants at only a fraction of the price. Restaurant.com is also a great way to find a restaurant in the area you are visiting and save a bunch. Online also has FREE activities that are sort of like a treasure hunt they are called geocaching and letterboxing. We have pulled a few of these locations when we went on vacation and had a blast. Many of these places will take you to a special hidden place you mat not have discovered otherwise.

5- Plan ahead - Planning and prepping ahead of time can be your biggest money saver. I blew my budget one time on a trip to the beach just because we forgot jackets and I had to buy 3 sweatshirts at $20 each. So plan for snacks, drinks, clothing, medicine, and personal health products.
You can also save on souvenirs by buying your little trinket and special memorabilia at a regular store vs. a gift shop at the location. If you are going to Disneyland you can get the same fun Disney coloring book and crayons at the Dollar store, saving you a bundle. The same goes for special movie premiers, the circus, water parks and Holidays.

This is a Scandinavian cookie recipe that has been passed down by my Grandmother. She makes this for us every Christmas and is considered a special treat. To make this easier the have a Pizzelle (Krumkake) iron available on amazon ( I have the link below). When making the dough, you want the consistence to be of a thick waffle batter.



Whipped Cream krumkake

1 cup sugar
½ cup butter (melted)
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
½ cup whipped cream (whipped)
2 cups flour
Krumkake iron (Cuisinart WM-PZ2 Pizzelle Press)
Beat eggs and add in sugar, whipped cream, butter, and vanilla. Add in enough flour to handle easily, and test on a hot iron. Place about 1 tbs. of dough on the iron. when lightly golden, remove from the iron. You may leave them flat, or roll to a cone shape and fill with whipped cream. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!

Shop BirthdayExpress.com Online

Get out the magic conch! Birthday Express has everything you need to throw a SpongeBob Birthday Party!

They have so many great SpongeBob birthday decorations that your only challenge will be deciding on which ones to use! Here are a few ideas that will compliment any SpongeBob party theme:

Invitations – Let SpongeBob’s smiling face get your guests in the adventurous spirit with SpongeBob Invitations! You can also personalize them by gluing them to an actual sponge or cutting a starfish or pineapple from stock paper and including it inside the invitation with a special message for your guests.

Party Decor – Birthday Express has it all when it comes to SpongeBob birthday decorations. SpongeBob Scene Setter Decoration Set is a must-have for an underwater-themed party. And what would SpongeBob say about a party without table decorations or a pinata? Barnacles, that’s what! You can also hang blue streamers from the ceiling to resemble waves and green ones for seaweed. And, of course, don’t forget to play SpongeBob music in the background!

Food & Drink – What better food to put on SpongeBob Classic Square Dinner Plates than fish sticks, SpongeBob Pirate’s Booty popcorn, goldfish crackers, and Krusty Krab Cakes (actual crab cakes or hamburgers). You can also make yellow cake cupcakes with yellow frosting and showcase them on the SpongeBob Cupcake Stand.

And most of all … have F.U.N. the SpongeBob way:

F is for friends who do stuff together
U is for you and me
N is for anywhere and anytime at all Down here in the deep blue sea!

Save $2 Now on St. Ives® Fresh Hydration Lotion Sprays at Walgreens #StIvesSprays

When it comes to our bodies many things come with age. Some wonderful, like confidence and knowledge  and some not so great things like sagging and wrinkles. Little by little everyone notices more fine lines and wrinkles the older you get. You are always told to drink lots of water and moisturize several times a day while you are young to prevent these things. But when you don’t see the problems, it is hard to be disciplined and follow through. I admit, I was one of those people who would go to bed with my make up still on, skip the moisturizing, drink lots of coffee and not enough water.
Recently, as I approach 35, I am starting to notice the first sign of fine lines and drooping.  I now realized I needed to change my  whole body routine. I know it sounds silly, but I don’t find myself with any time to moisturize in the morning before rushing the kids to school and getting on with my day or after a luxurious bath each night when all I want to do is fall into bed and pass out. Not getting enough sleep is already taking a toll on my skin I’m sure.

While browsing through my local Walgreens I found a St. Ives spray lotion, in citrus scent (my favorite). What was even better was I found this $2 off coupon…. so I decided to give it a try.

Much to my delight, I found it was the most easy thing I have ever done! What used to take up to five or ten minutes of applying, rubbing in, and drying, was easily done in under a minute.

My skin looks freshly moisturized without that heavy lotion feel, and is so refreshed. NEW St. Ives® Fresh Hydration Lotion Sprays are made with 100% natural moisturizers including:
o Glycerin, which is known to moisturize skin
o Shea butter, which contains skin moisturizing vitamins A, E and F
o Fatty acids, which are known to place moisture back into thirsty skin

If you want your skin to look dewy and fresh without the time, stop in to your local Walgreens from 3/2/15-3/21/15 to save on St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion Sprays. Simply by clicking HERE and signing in with your Balance Rewards Card* login and you can clip a $2.00 off coupon straight to your card! Not a Balance Rewards Card member? Not a problem! You can sign up easily by clicking on the ‘Register’ button—it only takes a minute!
