Free birthday clubs for kids

Below is a link to a list of free Birthday Clubs for kids. Kids can enjoy everything from ice-cream to free meals on their birthday. I like to use one of the free coupons my child gets on their birthday, and use it to make a little afternoon time us. We might go to the park, and then after wards stop by Burger King and grab the free birthday meal. While it is a simple idea, kids love having a little private time with just mommy.

Swag Bucks

Swag Bucks is my top pick for getting free things online. I regularly use the site, and have racked up $100's of dollars worth of free stuff. Very simple and easy. Basically its a search engine. Search like you normally do on the internet through their site and poof you win swag bucks here and there. Bucks can be traded in for items or gift certificates to places online like borders, amazon and more. To add up bucks quickly make sure to update your profile, use their search engine, take the daily poll, and check if they have surveys for you everyday. They do have a refer a friend program, that allows you to earn a buck for every buck your friend earns, up to 200 swag bucks per friend. Try it out! If you have any questions, or need help with it, feel free to leave a comment below!

Painting Lucky Wish Rocks

Today me and the two younger kids painted lucky wish rocks. It is a pretty inexpensive craft and tons of fun for the kids. Their special rocks can be lucky for a wish, scare nighttime monsters away, or even ward off bad dreams. The possibilities are endless. Below you will find a link to my full article, pic of our finished project and where to find inexpensive supplies.

First Post

The first post is always the hardest to write. Well here is goes. Thanks everyone for stopping by. I started this blog to share my ideas and tips for living a frugal family life. I have 4 children whose ages range from toddlers to teens. I am always on the hunt for inexpensive crafts, recipes and entertainment for the whole family. I am also the Northwest Indiana Frugal Family Examiner on Examiner.com There I write articles on frugal living and the NWI area. I hope to build this blog with great info for everyone, and create a place where everyone can share their own tips and ideas.
