Free Disney Character Calls

This is more something for older kids - but you can schedule a Disney Character to call your child! Barilla is sponsoring this program, that expires Sept 20 (but you can schedule as many calls as you want before then) but is not available in ID, WA, GA, KY, MS, NE, TN, or LA.

You can schedule Mickie, Minnie, Donald or Goofy to call your child. Visit Freebies4Mom to see a step by step on how to schedule it! Pretty cool!

And a happy father's day to all the Daddies out there!! We're going hiking at Blue Springs today! :)

Free Will & Trust Kit

So my goal for this weekend is to finish my will. I keep dragging my feet to get it done. But it is so important, especially if you have kids!

Any of you looking to write up a will can create one for free on Simply click on "Will & Trust Kit" and the gift code. Type in "people first" and you'll get an activation code. It's that simple. And the great thing is the kit is super user friendly!!

So I'm the worst blogger ever...

Okay so I start a blog and then don't post anything for four months... oops... Sorry guys! (I know you were so dissapointed). :) Anyways, I'll do my best to start posting regularly again! At least once a month!!

So what's new? Lot's going on in the "thrifty" world! Here's a couple things to keep your mailbox full:

  • Friend Shutterfly on Facebook and get a free 5x7 photobook on Shutterfly. You have to fill out a survey and then can claim your code (make sure to copy it down). You have till June 30 to redeem it (2.99 shipping).

  • Walmart has some samples out right now: Cottonelle, Playtex Gentle Glide, Crest 3D White

  • 3 Free 5x7 Folded Cards on Shutterfly with coupon code CARDS4DAD - but you have to login and go to your account (at the top right), then click on "Enter Special Offer Code."
I also found this cool site - - their clearance section has some really cool stuff - and some favorites for cheap (Avent Bottles for $4.50). I haven't bought anything from them yet, but plan to soon :)

And, of course, an update on the Jakester! He's changed so much since February!! He's crawling and getting into everything!! He's eating big boy food and absolutely loves it. Yesterday, he ate an entire banana - for dessert! He's been saying Dada for a few weeks now - but no Mama yet!!
