We received a 2lb tin of assorted cookies from Gimmee Jimmy's and were asked to do a 10 day "Freshness Test". It was a difficult task, but we stepped up to the challenge.

Kids are expensive. There is no sugar coating this. With a family of 5 on 1 income, we make sure that we save as much as we can, all of the time. Cue Groupon Coupons !

You can shop in store or online with Groupon Coupons. It's so easy to save money.

I can save money at Target and Walgreens, In-Store or Online. School will be starting soon and I am looking forward to using great coupons for Back To School shopping for my 3 growing boys.

There are so many great opportunities to save money at places like Bed Bath and Beyond with a 20% off coupon, and at Kohl's with a 15% off coupon. We love Kohl's and get a lot of our clothes there, so I know where I will be shopping soon. The great thing about Groupon Coupons is that I can use them in store or online.

You can head over to Target with over 70 coupons and promo codes available. If you are like me, I cannot walk into Target without coming out with more than I need.

If you plan on traveling soon, you can also use Groupon Coupons to save with Hertz, Travelocity, and Hotels.com. Saving money on accommodations allows you more to spend on the fun things you and your family can do.

Recap of Cub Scout Day Camp @thecubscouts #GTBAC

I had a fun 2 weeks at Cub Scout Day Camp.

I volunteered to be a leader for the 2nd grade Wolf Den. I did end up with Wolves and Bears
(and Webelos during week 2), but no one seemed to mind the mixed ranks.

I had not been a leader at camp before, though last year, I followed the Den Leaders around camp. My youngest attended as a Tiger, so I could only be there as a parent.

I was proud to live the Boy Scout motto: Be Prepared

I had all the essentials plus more. I definitely paid attention last year.
I was paired with another Mom who had never been to Day Camp. She was happy I had a clue and knew where I was going. Secretly, I felt the same way.

Everyday, we brought fresh fruit and snacks for the boys. I had a  wagon so I could bring a large cooler with ice water. The camp provided water all day at every station, but I know what that water tastes like, and I wanted to bring my own. My son called me a Water Snob!
The wagon was a blessing and a curse. We would cart around all of our things easily, but the sand.
Oh the treacherous sand !

We kept a first aid kit on hand as well as ample sunscreen and bug spray.
I believe I heard the report that there were no serious injuries either week, with dehydration being the biggest culprit (mainly the staff).
