After our original vacation plans fell through, we decided to take a staycation. So, we planned each day with activities to do for the kids. Although, most activities are budget minded, we did splurge on a few things. I will be periodically posting each days activities, as I have time, and I will post what we spent on each activity.
Day 1- We ate lunch at the Varsity in Atlanta, and then hit the Aquarium. The kids had a blast! After the aquarium, we walked over to the park, and then hit Bruster's on the way home in Buford.
The Varsity= $14 The Aquarium tickets= $117 (also includes tickets to Deepo's Undersea 3D Wondershow and parking-- if you've never been to the 3D show, it is worth it, the kid's loved it) snacks= $6.65 Bruster's= around $8.00
Go here to print a coupon for a free travel size item (up to $5) with any purchase through July 29, 2009 at Bath & Body works. There is no minimum purchase, so you can purchase a clearance product and still get the free travel size item.
We have been having internet problems, along with a flooded sunroom, and 3rd trimester exhaustion. I have internet at the moment, so decided I would post a few things.
Here is this week's shopping trip.
Ingles is having triple coupon week this week. Not a ton of great bargains like I got last time they had triple coupon week, but I didn't plan as well this time since my house is very chaotic at the moment (we had to take everything out of our play(sun)room and EVERYTHING is currently all over the house).
Before coupons, the total was $72, after coupons the total was $33.03.
Here is this week's Publix trip. The total was $36.54.

Just wanted to welcome everyone to my blog.

Hope you enjoy and find lots of useful information on saving money and things you can do to protect our beautiful earth God has blessed us with.
