Dave Ramsey’s “Smart Money Smart Kids” Book – $11.76 on Amazon (lowest price!)

51cbkI+8+PL._SX334_BO1,204,203,200_

Right now you can get Dave Ramsey’s Smart Money Smart Kids: Raising the Next Generation to Win with Money book for $11.76 on Amazon, which is the lowest price it’s been! Dave Ramsey is a financial expert and best-selling author who wrote this book with his daughter to equip parents to teach their children how to manage their money.

Shipping is free with Prime, otherwise you’ll get free shipping on orders with at least $25 of books (or on orders of $49 or more).

If you’ve never looked into what Dave Ramsey has to offer, I highly recommend it. His methods of budgeting really make sense. Check out my thoughts on Financial Peace University (Dave Ramsey’s program).

Stuff I didn’t know I needed…until I went to Costco (June ’16 edition… with kids)

Stuff I didn't know I needed...until I went to Costco

It’s time once again for a fun installment of “Stuff I didn’t know I needed… until I went to Costco.” Because as much as we like to say that we shop at Costco for the savings, the truth is we also shop there for the cool stuff. Stuff you just can’t find anywhere else!

My kids are out of school for the summer, which means they had to make the trek with me after their dentist appointment (wow, I’m such a fun mom huh!). Thankfully, they like Costco too and get that mom has a weird job where she visits stores and takes photos. One quick word: given the distraction of having my kids and wanting to get in/out, I realize several of the photos below neglected to include the prices. I’m going to do my best guess on prices for those, but know your results may vary.

With that, here’s what we found on our trip today:

Umbrella

My daughter had no problem posing with this cute bubble umbrella. I’ve written about it before; I think it’s $15ish. Water Bottles at Costco

This set of 2 kids’ water bottles is $9.99 after rebate!  Water pitcher

Set of 2 airtight water pitchers for $19.99.  KitchenAid Mandolin Slicer Set at Costco

KitchenAid Mandoline Slicer set for just $19.99. This is about the price I paid for mine, but it looks much nicer! I can’t say I’ve ever seen one of these at Costco before.  Rubbermaid Ultimate Party Serving Kit at Costco

Rubbermaid ultimate party serving kit. Perfect for storing and bringing everything from deviled eggs to cake. It was $19.99.Filled Binder at Costco

This filled binder was $14.99 and included all kinds of items. The kids groaned when I said, “hey look guys! Time to get ready for back to school!” (They are only on their second week of summer vacation.)  Read More…

Remlinger Farms on Groupon: Save 29% Off Admission

Remlinger Farm Groupon

Just a heads up – for a limited time only, this deal is back again!

*****

I always hope to see the Remlinger Farms deal pop up on Groupon this time of year – and I’m happy to say – it’s back! Right now, you can pay $19.50 for all-day admission for 2 to Remlinger Farms – a value of $27.50!

Never heard of Remlinger Farms? For starters, it’s located near Carnation, Washington. Let me tell you a little bit about why this place is so awesome and why it needs to be on your family’s “to do” list this summer:

Rides at Remlinger

Tons of kiddie rides. These rides are geared for the youngest set – say ages 10 and under. I actually prefer taking my kids to Remlinger over the Puyallup Fair as the wait times are shorter, there are no ride tickets (your admission covers unlimited rides), and none of the rides are too scary for my kids.

DSCN1028 (800x581)

Cool places for kids to play. There are lots of places to get the wiggles out and let your kids play! The hay jump is always a favorite.

DSCN1008 (800x702)

Pony rides. Yes, this is also included with admission to Remlinger! That’s one of the biggest things I love about it – once you’re in, you’re golden. Ride the train, ride the ponies, ride the rides – you won’t be nickel and dimed once you’re inside.

What else will you find to do?

  • Ride a steam train
  • See the animals
  • Check out the cool farm store
  • U-pick berries (seasonal – call ahead for availability & details)

Here is the fine print stuff you need to know before purchasing this Groupon:

  • Limit 1 per person, may buy 1 additional as gift.
  • Not valid with promo codes.
  • Not valid during Festival Weekends.
  • Promotional value expires Sep 19, 2016. Amount paid never expires. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

In the past, I’ve purchased (2) Groupons and let my husband and one child go in using one, while I and the other child use the other. I highly encourage you to take advantage of this deal and make a day of getting the family out to Remlinger! Head to Groupon to snag this deal.
