Raising Kids, Homeschooling, Trying to be Financially Healthy
Free stuff is everywhere and I intend to keep on finding it. We took a field trip to the fair during Farm Days. I didn't take the kids on the rides, which I know may sound mean, but they just went to Disney World for goodness sakes. The parking was free (regularly $7- my word). We got in for free, and we got to go to the exhibits for free. In addition, when we walked in, they had a special scavenger hunt for the kids. If they filled out all the answers, they got a free kids meal. I already had brought a picnic lunch so that meant free meal on the way home (I am kind of bad about forgetting a coupon if I don't use it quickly). We worked together to figure it out and then I took them for a kids meal and frosty (they exchanged their regular drink for a teeny frosty and then just got water to drink). In addition, we got some other freebies at the exhibits like free post it notes that I am always needing in homeschooling for marking what the kids need to do, pens and a free Shoney's breakfast buffet. Lesson of this day: keep your eye out for the free stuff!
