What I Will Do For a Freebie...

I was checking some email and surfing a bit, when I saw a survey offer. I had to watch a medical video and then answer a few questions. I watched the video, which took at least a half hour and was packed with over-my-head medical jargon. I felt like my brain was about to explode. Luckily, it ended before I shut the survey down and do you know what the rewards included? Medical equipment, thermometer, books and more. I was very impressed and happy I didn't quit on the video! I got the thermometer. I can't wait to see if it really comes in the mail! I've been doing surveys for a long time, but never got something that valuable before.

Drowning in Chef Boyardee...

Where am I going to put all this Chef Boyardee? I bought 50 cans of Chef Boyardee. They had a buy 10, get a $2 coupon off your next purchase offer, plus combine with coupons, plus the pasta was $1 a can and it was a deal I couldn't resist. I am doing the Chef Boyardee movie ticket offer, which expires beginning of September. I had put off doing it because Chef Boyardee never seemed to go on sale and my waiting paid off! Last year when I did the movie ticket deal, the pasta lasted a year, so I actually was out of pasta when this deal came around again. My husband thought I was silly, but when we are going out to see movies this fall and winter for free, he always thanks me!

Cedar Point, New Coupons, More

The past few days have been super nice with it being in the 70's. It's about time the temps went down! I want to go to Cedar Point, I haven't been there in awhile. Some of our yearly traditions include buying something at the berry shop on the frontier trail, checking out the candle store, and buying a pound of fudge and splitting it with my in-laws. And of course we have fun with our 3 year old son, he loves the rides at Cedar Point. He went on his first ride at 1 month old! My husband is a big fan of the park and I'm thinking Cam will be too!

I'm also looking forward to Halloweekends, which starts September 23rd! Speaking of Cedar Point, they have lowered their ticket prices for seniors and junior admission. So if you haven't been over there yet, this is a good time to go. Also, for more Cedar Point info, photos and more, check out, Pointbuzz.com
