FREE


It seems like lately I'm spending most of my time just waiting for Chris to get home so I can have some parenting help and adult company. But the problem is, a lot of times he comes home and just wants to take a nap! What gives? Can't a girl get a break? Anyways!


This was the case yesterday afternoon, and i found myself needing to entertain Annie (and myself) when all our options at home were pretty much used already. So we decided to go to the mall for some (almost) free fun.

First we hit Victoria's Secret, where I had a voucher for a free Lacie thong (no I'm not going to put up a picture of these :)). Then we went to Old Navy, where I had a $10 merchandise voucher fo using my ON account. So I got one of those velcro catch games that they had on clearance, and a cute fall shirt for Annie. It all cost me 1.70 after the voucher. Annie had fun coloring a picture in the children's section at Old Navy (free).

Next we went to the indoor playground at the mall. While we were there, I remembered i had a $1 credit at CVS so we went there and I got a diet mt dew, which I shamelessly shared with Annie, cause she asked me so sweetly. Hold on, don't call DHS, I only gave her a few sips.

We looked at the hermit crabs at Coachouse, and i let annie ride a few of the quarter rides. All in all we were entertained for almost an hour and a half, and spent only about $3.00. What a deal!

That's so great! There's more to do for free/cheap than you realize I guess!

Sounds like a great afternoon. I had those velcro-thingies - they were mighty entertaining to my six-year-old self!

I hope Chris will be able to help out more next time! :-)
But glad you still had a great day!

You are so frugal- and I mean that as a compliment! I don't know anyone else who can clip and utilize coupons better than you. And your afteroon sounded fun! You're so resourceful. :)
