Today is Family Fun Day!

My husband is off today!!!! I've never mentioned this before, but he is a restaurant manager so he has crazy hours and days off. Which leads to my random posting schedule. I try my best to shift to "day off mode" when he's off for the day, or the morning etc. Sometimes it's hard for me when it's a weekday.

Anyway, today we are heading up to visit my in-laws in their new place. For the past year and a half they have been an hour and half away, but now it will be closer to about 30 minutes. My daughter is so excited!!!

Then, we're off to the Dillard's Clearance Center. It's where they ship their 75% off stuff. It's a super fun place!!!! Lot's of high end stuff (think eBay)!!! They usually mark it down an additional 25-50%, so we'll see today what deals and treasures await us.

But....before I head to story time (in 15 minutes) and start our day, I wanted to mention a really cool deal I read about over at Be Thrifty Like Us. It's a CVS/Glamour Magazine deal. Buy one product from the list, mail your receipt into Glamour and you get a bag full of goodies (a $86 value). The bag is pictured above. Read the details here. I think I'll run to CVS while we're out today.

Also, this weekend is the "Circle of Friends" sale at Gymboree. You can receive an extra 30% off everything (online too). My son really needs PJ's so I think I'll make a trip. To me it's worth it to get "good" PJ's. They are so nice first of all, but I can re-sell them on eBay when he's done. I end up "ahead" as opposed to buying some PJ's at Wal-Mart or Target that have NO re-sell value. Anyway, if anyone needs a 30% coupon, send me a message/comment and I'll e-mail it to you.

Have a great day, I'm off to story time!
