|Easter morning--with the new kitty, Wilson|
How might the Easter Bunny bring FREE gifts? Well, last December My Coke Rewards has a great deal on Best Buy Gift Cards--redeeming My Coke Rewards points for gift cards. Then, the Sunday prior to Easter, Best Buy featured a sale on the Disney Infinity figures--almost $4 off each one!
Since the Easter Bunny had no other plans at this point, a few clicks and they were on their way. The Easter Bunny made some cash back, too, by shopping through Ebates. I've had several people ask me, after seeing an Ebates commercial on TV, if it is "real." The answer--YES! And, while my total cash back is not as impressive as the ones on TV, over $300 is nothing to scoff at! If you would like to get started using Ebates--click here. Be sure to select your sign-on bonus!
Saturday prior to Easter, I had been running errands, including to the mall where I spent a total of $6 on two pairs of pants for the boy for Boy Scout Camp ($1.06 each at JC Penney including tax), tooth paste, and hair brushes. What was amazing was watching people making purchases for Easter Baskets. What happens to those plastic eggs after the candy has been eaten? The colored grass? The basket?
The boy had a box--which may have lacked in presentation, but made up for it in utility. He also enjoyed opening the box and popping the inflated packaging! I recycled the box and used it to pack up clothes that were being donated. For me, ease and practicality win almost every time!
The boy says he has now completed the Marvel set and needs to get to work on the Class Disney figures. Noted!
P.S. The Tooth Fairy came that same week-end for the last baby tooth!
