Date Night! Go see The Lincoln Lawyer – Cheap!


Posted on : 16-03-2011 | By : Trish | In : Activities and Entertainment, Daily Deals

Ready for a night away from the kiddos? How about a date night to go see Matthew McConaughey in The Lincoln Lawyer? Right now, you can snag a fabulous Groupon to do just that for only $6 per ticket!!! Yep, at that price, you could probably grab a popcorn & call it dinner and a movie.

Ladies, you don’t have to leave the hubby at home just so you can drool over Matthew without hurting his feelings. Marisa Tomei is also in the movie so he can do his very own drooling. Then again, a girls’ night out (or guys’ night out) may be even better! 

The super cheap tickets are good for any showing (at a Fandago-served theater) during the first 3 weeks of the movie’s run…I love it! Matinee prices after dark? I’m so there.

Fun and FREE Things to do This Weekend!


Posted on : 04-03-2011 | By : Trish | In : Activities and Entertainment, Daily Deals, Free Stuff, Restaurant Deals

It’s the first Saturday of the month! Time for some fun, free activities! First, stop by a participating Chick-fil-a in your PJ’s from 8-10 am to get a FREE chicken biscuit.

Once you’ve had your fill, head on over to The Home Depot for a free project for kids from 9am-12pm. This month’s project is a race car, but don’t let that stop you from taking your girls! They love it, too.  I’m not sure about this one, but the last vehicle we did was a bit of a nightmare…but, it was a fire truck with ladders, so maybe this one will be easier.

After you’ve worked up an appetite with all that hammering & hard work, have lunch at Steak ‘n Shake where kids eat FREE all weekend with purchase of adult entree (One free kid’s plate for every $8 spent)! Not enough free food for you? How about some breakfast for dinner? From 4-8pm, kids eat FREE at IHOP with the purchase of an adult entree.

Want to find a truly awesome deal? Check with your local Goodwill Store to see if tomorrow is the day they have their Saturday Sale. In most stores, the first Saturday of the month is the store wide half-off sale. Everything in the store (except the outlet) is 50% off! Goodwill can be a fabulous place to shop, especially in affluent communities, and half-off makes it even better!

If you live close to museums, art galleries, or a zoo, check with them to see if they offer free admission this weekend. Most museums offer at least one free admission day per month, and lots of times, it’s the first Saturday.

Be sure to check with your local stores & restaurants to make sure they are participating before heading out. These deals sometimes vary by location.

Have a great weekend!
