Saving is FUN! By: Stephanie

There are lots of great deals that you can take advantage of here in Louisville! It's always fun to find a bargain and even better when you involve your kids and show them it's fun to save. Here are some great finds in today's paper....if you don't get the paper, run out and get one! It's worth it!

Flip to the back of the cartoons. There is an ad for Little Caesars and if you child colors the small coloring section, you can cut it out and bring it in for FREE CRAZY BREAD!  You can redeem your coupon now until 8/31/2010.  No purchase necessary!

Find the Michaels circular and cut out the 40% off coupon.  Take your child to Michaels this week and let them pick out a craft and you can save!  Great thing about Michaels is that you can find a wind array of craft kits for all ages and some are as low as $1.  They have little figurines or wooden cut outs that come with paint and markers for only $1, so with your coupon...that's only $0.60!

Use the Smokey Bones insert to save $10 when you spend $25.  Take your kids and challenge them to order, with you, right around $25 total to maximize your savings and you all can eat for around $15 and enjoy a wonderful meal together.

Let your kids pick out some free school supplies at CVS!  If you have a kid in diapers, you should go to CVS.com and register your email address so you can get a $4 off $20 coupon. Take that to CVS with other pampers coupons you may have and get a box of pampers for $21.99. I know with my coupons, I will get the box for $15.99. Then, with my CVS card, I will get $10 in Extra Bucks after I buy the diapers. Then, go back throughout the store and get other things you need with the $10 coupon....school supplies are on sale now!  I am going to get healthy and beauty supplies that are on sale and use other coupons and my extra bucks and save big!

Sit down a the computer with your child and help them design a photo book at CVS.com using pictures from camp, a family vacation or anything else fun from the summer.  The 10 page 6x8 photo books are on sale! They are $7.99 and you will get $7.99 back in extra bucks....so that's like getting it free! You child will love designing their own book!

Take your children school supply shopping or stock up on some craft supplies at Office Max.  This week, they have folders for 1 CENT (limit 6) and Crayons for 5 CENTS (limit 3)  and washable markers for 25 CENTS (limit 3).  I always take advantage of these bargains even though my kids are not in school.  We have a craft bucket and my kids love busting out the craft bucket on a rainy day or when the babysitter comes over.
