Sunday Speak: Do You Costume?

Sunday Speak: Do You Costume?

Today is Halloween! For the kids we know that means trick-or-treating. But what about the adults? Lisa and I are divided on Halloween. I love it, her not so much. I am excited over dressing up and going to a party.

I had a costume this year that I was so excited over. Then it came. It was a disaster. Way too big and not fixable or cute at all. I ended up in a jam and got a really cute witch costume. Lisa was in a jam too and needed a costume asap too. She ended up being a witch too!! Good thing we didn’t go to the same party!

What about you? Do you dress up? What did you go as this year? What was your favorite costume? Do you have a specific Halloween ritual? What is your favorite part of the holiday?

Chili’s: Dinner Tonight

Chili’s: Dinner Tonight

Chances are, you’re gonna be Trick or Treating with the kiddies if you’ve got some. And chances are, you’re not gonna wanna cook when they’re done.

You’ve got options.

You can let them stuff their faces with the candy they’ve collected … or you can take them to Chili’s with this coupon.

Well, not that exact coupon.

See, I’m on Chili’s email list so I got it. But, see, if you see up top, when you click the coupon, it says email=me%40yahoo.com [[yeah, up in the URL]]. Chance the me%40yahoo.com to your email address, using %40 instead of @ and you’ll get a unique coupon code. That way, you can get free kids meals with any adult entrĂ©e purchase today [[October 31]] after 3 pm.

Sounds a lot healthier than a sugar meal.

Growing Tree Toys: Shout The Savings

Growing Tree Toys: Shout The Savings

My Shout Color Catcher sample [[which I swore we posted, but didn’t because I just checked and we only have a draft of it]] came in the mail, and I opened it because, well, that’s the thing you do with mail. You open it.

Inside it was a coupon for Growing Tree Toys. If you enter the code SHOUT at checkout, you’ll save 20% off your total. This is only good until Wednesday, November 10, so you kinda wanna hurry.

If you want some toys, but you’d rather not pay, then create a wishlist. If you enter this contest, you can win your entire wish list … up to $1,000 worth of toys. This ends tomorrow though, so you really have to hurry

Rite Aid: More Video Values

Rite Aid: More Video Values

Swagbucks has this new video program where you watch and win some bucks. I just can’t get behind it. I don’t know why, but I can’t sit and watch videos online.

Which is why I have trouble with Rite Aid‘s video values. If you don’t, you wanna log into your account because there are three brand new coupons there. What are they?

$0.50 off Stride Shift Gum
$1off any Coca-Cola 7.5oz mini can 8pk
$1.00 off 7up 12 packs

Enjoy — if you’re into that.
