*HOT* Walgreens: Free 8×10 Photo Print (Til 8/28)

I’ve been waiting for a free 8×10 from Walgreens. See, we  got back from Japan with about 2,000 photos on an SD card, waiting to get printed (although a few have made it on to Instagram).

Now we can get one.

Now through August 28 you can get a free 8×10 photo at Walgreens with the code FREESTUFF. Choose in store pickup and it will be completely free. I’m stoked. Checking out and using that code is easy; going through my photos and picking which to print, well, that’s gonna be hard.

Where To Find Back-To-School Clothing Deals

back-to-school-clothing-dealsIt’s crazy to me that it’s back-to-school time already. The teachers here went back already and kids are following close behind. So that means dressing them.

Part of my favorite thing about going back to school was back-to-school shopping. We were able to pick out an outfit for the first day, new shoes for the year, and then a few new tops and bottoms. Are your kids excited about that too? It’s so different now than when I was in school. See, then, we went to the mall and went from store to store, looking for deals and clearance racks. Now, you can just shop online. And to help you, I’ve put together a list of all the deals I’ve found on back-to-school clothes. Yup, this is basically your online mall, your one stop shopping for back-to-school-clothing deals.

This list will be changing as store deals change, so be sure to keep coming back.

Sonic: $1 Hot Dogs (Today Only!)

sonicWhat are you doing today?

Me? I’m going to Sonic for lunch.

All day long today (August 25), All American Dogs and Chili Cheese 6-inch hot dogs are only $1. Sounds like the perfect cheap lunch to me.

You must mention this deal when ordering. It’s a limit of five per person. Tax is not included and add-ons cost extra. This offer is valid today only at participating SONIC® Drive-Ins while supplies last.

I’ve actually never had a hot dog from Sonic, so this sounds like a good excuse to try one. Have you had one? Be sure to let me know which of these is better. Actually, at this price, I can try both.

Starbucks: Buy A $10 Gift Card & Get $5 Free (Til 8/29)

starbucksAre you a fan of Starbucks? Then this deal is for you.

Right now, when you buy a $10 Starbucks gift card with a Visa card, you get a $5 bonus. So a $10 gift card turns into a $15 gift card. This is limited to the first 200,000 gift card sales between now and August 29.

The “catch” is that you have to order it using Visa Checkout (which is free to sign up for) and use a Visa card at checkout. The $10 price will be charged to your Visa card and the emailed receipt will reflect the $15 card. The gift card will be emailed to the recipient.

When you get this, use it to register for My Starbucks Rewards, Starbucks’ free loyalty program. By joining, you’ll earn stars for your purchases — and those turn into free refills, free drinks, and more. Join for free here.

Homemade Banana Bread

banana-bread-recipe

banana-bread-recipeI was in the grocery store the other day and saw bananas were discounted. They were a little old, I guess, but not old enough. So I picked them up with the idea that I would wait a few days and then make banana bread.

You don’t need that many ingredients for banana bread, but what you do need is really ripe bananas. So ripe that there’s no way you’re gonna eat them by themselves. So ripe that you are ready to toss them in the trash. The riper, the better.

So finally, after a handful of days on the counter, Pete took half of one for breakfast and left me the other half (that’s why half a banana is way darker than the other ones). I used them and made my famous banana bread. I have no idea where this recipe is from. It’s handwritten, by me, and I got it from someone. There’s no name or date on the recipe, just a few grease stains.

Homemade Banana Bread

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup and 2 tbs. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3 1/2 bananas, very ripe, mashed
  • 2 tbs. sour cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

What You’ll Do:

Preheat the oven to 350.
