Mom Speak – Fun Family Free Days

Fun Stuff to do with your Free Time!! A Non-Fictional Account of This Mom’s Attempt to Save…money on entertainment for the whole family. Just had to share how much fun we’re having on our “free” family fun day!! We started out at Lowe’s Build & Grow kids workshop. We had a great time making the schoolhouse model along with lots of other kids! Then we went to the Home Depot kids workshop. They were already out of the picket fence kits at 10:30, but the manager was so nice! She let my daughter pick out a free 6 pack of flowers! We got a wooden NASCAR model car too! Both Lowe’s and Home Depot give the kids aprons and goggles. So cute!! Then we went to Kohl’s to use our $10 coupon where we found and adorable swimsuit on sale for $10 – so it was almost free (cost less than $1 w/tax). We picked up our free comic book. And, we stopped by Costco for a few things we needed and snacked on all the free food samples (in lieu of lunch!!) By the way, I just learned that you can get stamps at Costco for less than the post office charges! I have rebates to send in, so I stocked up!
Now I’m blogging from the park on a free WordPress app. 😉 It’s beautiful, 74 degrees and sunny. It’s been a great “free” day! Hope your day was great too! Update: we stopped by the grocery store to use a few coupons, and rented a free movie from Redbox.
