Screamin Daily Deals

If you want to save some money and get some Screamin deals from local businesses in your area, check out Screamin Coupons at

Most deals give at least 50% or more off their regular price! They will even give a percentage of the sale proceeds to a school of your choice. Sign up is free and there are no fees for anything. Just pay for the things you want to buy.

During Spring break, we checked out a local restaurant, La Salsa, while the kids got a lunch treat at McDonalds. My husband and I paid only $4 for each meal using our Screamin Coupons. The chicken taquitos are delish!
After lunch, we used another Screamin Coupon for Fins Glow, a glow in the dark miniature golf place. Their deal was half off unlimited golf. So, for just $5 ( my 2 year old was free), my 2 girls played 5 rounds of golf which lasted 2 hours. That's a Screamin Coupon deal!

Kidspace - FREE Family Night

My daughter is a few days into Spring Break and finding frugal things to do can be a challenge. Kidspace had saved the day with their FREE family night which is on the 1st Tues. of every month from 4-8.
The girls have so much fun there. My youngest daughter was very fascinated with the butterfly exhibit, painting the leaf and getting wet with their water fountains. They had a performance of Alice in Wonderland which the girls also enjoyed. The trick is to get there at 4:00 and leave before dinner time to avoid paying their high prices for food. Or bring snacks to hold the kids over a little longer before going home for a quick fix dinner.

April Fools!

I'm not that great at coming up with good April fool's day jokes; especially for 2 young girls. I did come up with something the whole family would enjoy - Breakfast for Dinner.

My girls LOVE pancakes and eggs; so I knew they would be excited to eat their surprise April Fools dinner. I made a egg and bacon pie/quiche for my husband and I to give breakfast a change from the ordinary. I called everyone for DESSERT. They were confused as to why dessert was being served. Where's dinner? 1 chocolate chip cookie sat on a plate at everyone's place setting. This was a bit odd for everyone; but nobody complained about having a dessert to start. After everyone was finished eating their cookie; I served them their dinner breakfast. The girls were so excited to see pancakes and eggs for dinner! My 5 year old, can't wait to have another April Fool's dinner again!

Breakfast items such as eggs and pancake mix are very low cost and can make for a great change of pace for dinner!
