So it’s been a couple of weeks since i’ve been able to update my blog. The holidays were insane! Fortunately, I believe things are starting to get back to normal. That being said, I thought my first post back would be a “rewarding” one.

I came across a really cool website where you can INSTANTLY win great prizes. The website (BLINGO) is nothing more then a search engine. It’s no different then using yahoo.com to search, HOWEVER, you have a chance to win a prize INSTANTLY! It’s really that simple!

All you do is sign up (again this is totally FREE) and start searching. You have 25 chances per day to win. All that means is, your first 25 searches of the day are possible wins. So at any point during your search, you can win an amazon gift card, cash, a plasma tv, even a car! There are SOOO many great prizes available!

Best of all there’s no confusion whether or not you won as it pops up righ ton the screen and notifies you. It’s REALLY THAT EASY!

So stop what you’re doing and register! You’ve nothing to lose…..only great prizes to win!

P.S. If you join through my link and win a prize, I will be awarded the same prize so any signups from my page here would be GREATLY appreciated!

Every weekend, Lowes offers FREE craft projects for your kids to do. It’s called the build and grow workshop. Click the link to see what crafts they’re doing this weekend, and sign up your child(ren).

Don’t feel like leaving the house but still want to enjoy some family fun time? Check out Disney Family Fun magazine online. The have SO many free crafting projects, printable coloring pages, recipes and more!

This is a MUST DO with the kiddos! Free G and PG movies at Regel Cinemas across the USA. This is a very popular outing as there is no cost involved and the kids truely enjoy the experience. The downside is it’s only 9 weeks a year and doesn’t strt again until May 2010. No worries though. Just bookmark that website and check back at the end of April. I’ll be sure to post about it again s well, when the time gets closer.

This next one goes out to all of my local readers in the Hampton Roads area. This Sunday, December 6th, the Contemporary Arts Center of Virginia, will be holding a holiday craft sale and free family festival. This one is sure to be lots of fun for the kids as they can ohh and ahh over the beautiful artwork, and then make some of their own…for FREE! This fun event is from 12-4. Be sure to stop by!

On another note, I have some VERY useful information for all of you! If you’re like most people, you have a jar or tin of spare change just laying around your house. Maybe you occasionally cash it in at a coinstar to turn that change into bills. Well, now you can save even MORE money by doing that!

If you’ve ever poured your loose change into a coinstar machine, then you know they take a percentage out. It’s not a huge chunk or anything but it sure adds up. There’s no need to lose that extra bit anymore. There’s actually a way around that! Instead of getting cash back, have the money put on a giftcard. You don’t get a percentage taken out! To make it even sweeter, coinstar is offering you $10 for FREE if you cash in atleast $40 in change! The $10 offer is only good until December 6th so if you’ve been saving those pennies, NOW is the time to cash it in!!!
