Coolest website everrrr

Okay, so I found a pretty amazing website for those of you who are OCD about planning (or trying to be, like me). It's called D*I*Y Planner. It's basically just a huge website full of empty calendars, memos, organizers, and planning tools that you can print off and use. SO cool. I've been goofing off on the website all morning and they have some really awesome templates to help you get organized. The best part? THEY'RE ALL FREE!

Swap Meet!

Okay, we've finally set the date for the swap meet! We are going to meet at my house starting at 6pm on Thursday, June 18th. If you need my address or directions, shoot me an email at couponcallie@gmail.com.

Everyone is welcome... EVERYONE. :) Just to refresh your memory, here's what's going down:

Okay, I have decided to have a Swap Party for y'all at my house in the near future. This will be a time to bring any shoes, clothes, handbags, kids items, movies, books, home accesories, etc. that you no longer want and swap them out for things that other folks bring! That way, you can come get rid of things that you no longer want and end up with some great free stuff, too! We'll provide some food and beverages and make this a fun time for us to socialize and swap. Anything left over at the end of the evening will be donated to Goodwill or taken to a consignment store.

Let me know if you'll be able to come so we can plan accordingly. I hope to see you all there!!

Regal Film Festival

Okay, so those of you mommies with kids who are out of school for the summer and looking for something cheap or free to do... this is for you!!

Regal Cinemas is offering free G and PG movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays... yes... FREE! Every kid loves getting to go to the movies, but at $10 a ticket, who can afford that?? So this is a great way to get the kids (and yourself!) out of the house and get to enjoy a fun movie.

You can visit Regal's website for more details and showtimes! http://www.regmovies.com/nowshowing/familyfilmfestivalschedule.aspx


EDIT: Thanks to Dwight, I now realize that this deal DOES NOT APPLY IN GEORGIA! Dwight went up to K-Mart and spoke to the manager and found out that this is not a deal that works in Georgia... so don't go to K-Mart and try to get double coupons. Thank you, Dwight!! Also, as a side note... if you know Dwight, talk to him about how much money he and Sharon, his wife, are saving on groceries every month using coupons and knowing how to work the deals. They are AWESOME!! :)

Okay, so I am definitely not usually a fan of K-Mart, but this week they're doubling coupons up to $2! You can get some AMAZING deals- especially on baby items!

Check out the blog post from Common Sense with Money for a full list of the amazing deals you can get! Totally worth a little bit of a drive to your nearest K-Mart!
