If this is your first time linking up with us on This for That, please READ THIS POST for more information!

Post your “need” in the MckLinky by writing about what you need and linking to where others can fulfill that need. Meet the need of the 3 ppl DIRECTLY ABOVE your link, AND THEN YOU ARE DONE! If you want more than 3 ppl to help you out, then wait a bit, come back later and enter your need again (just make sure you AGAIN help out the 3 ppl DIRECTLY ABOVE you). The idea is that you help out 3 ppl and 3 ppl help you out…AND you don’t have to wonder if you left someone hanging because your job is done as soon as you help out the three ppl above you! You can link up as many times as you want!

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IN ORDER TO LINK UP, YOU NEED TO FULFILL THE REQUESTS OF THE THREE PEOPLE ABOVE YOU. IF YOU CANNOT MEET THE NEED, PLEASE EMAIL ME. OTHERWISE, I WILL BE DELETING REQUESTS OF THOSE WHO AREN’T FULFILLING THE REQUESTS OF OTHERS. IF YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO HELP OTHERS OUT AT THE MOMENT, THEN PLEASE WAIT TO LINK UP UNTIL YOU DO. THANK YOU 🙂
If I delete your request and you DID meet the needs of the 3 ppl DIRECTLY ABOVE YOU, please email me and I will correct this!

**Note** If someone asks that you follow via GFC and you already do, I’m sure they would appreciate it if you find another way to follow or help them. Or you could comment and let them know you already do and ask if there is anything else you can do to help them.

five of your favorite family time ideas

Twittermoms.com and LEGO have a great blogging opportunity going on right now.  List 5 of your favorite family time ideas.  For me we try to do it frugal but do it fun. Here are some of the things we enjoy doing.

1. We love to have a movie night.  We get a movie on Videos on Demand usually (family friendly of course). I’ll make up some microwave popcorn or some finger foods. The kids are allowed to eat in the living room (this is usually a no no so it’s fun for the kids).  They love it and we can all have a laugh together and talk about the movie.

2.  Baking—now I’m no Betty Crocker but the kids enjoy a box mix just as much as making from scratch. For a quick treat we like to get the muffin mixes. We’ll make them up together and eat them warm with butter and a glass of milk.  Even though it only take a few minutes the kids enjoy it.  I let them do most of it.  Then they like to tell dad “i made these muffins”.

3.  Family soccer games (when the weather is cooperative of course).  It’s usually my hubby and one of my sons, then me and one of my sons on teams.  We put a blanket out for the baby with some toys on it and he enjoys watching us.  We kick the ball around the yard setting certain landmarks as goals (1 is usually between the 2 rose bushes the other is usually the sand pit where the easy set pool was)

4.  Family walks.  Sometimes the kids will ride their bikes along side and sometimes they’ll walk.  The baby enjoys looking around and taking in everything. 

5.  Family game night–this could include a boys only video game session (the 2 older boys and my hubby with me and the baby watching and me getting snacks for them), card games, or whatever we feel like. 

I’d love to hear some of your frugal family time activities.  OR create your own post with twittermoms.com for a chance at LEGO prizes!

Good deal on personalized url stickers for your car

I had been looking around pricing URL decals to put on my car for my blog. Some places were rather pricey. Others seemed so big. I didn’t want to turn my car into a moving billboard I just wanted something simple that someone might see sitting behind me in traffic.

I found Rogers Stuff on Bonanzle. He does personalized URL vinyl decals.

He has simple ones for only $3.49.  It says it’s for Bonanzle booth but he will do them for any web address.  I had him do my custom URL for my blog www.luvsavingmoney.info

This is the back of my car.  Tried to take the pic so my license plate wasn’t in the photo.  I put the decal on crooked.

He can do them in Black

Or White

Both colors are only $3.49 ea.  This is not a typical review.  I just know that there are other people like me looking for a cheap way to advertise and I found a great way.  I’ve already had about 3 people ask me “What’s luvsavinmoney?”  So i hand them my business card with my blog url and say “it’s my blog about saving money.  I also do reviews and giveaways!” lol

Anywho, just thought I’d share for anyone else looking.

Oh almost forgot.  He also has “fancier” ones if you really wanted something bigger or wanted to add a logo or something  You can see those here:  Website Domain URL those are $40  but like I said the ones for $3.49 he can make whatever url you wanna use just it’s not as flashy
