Home Depot Kids Workshop

Tomorrow, Saturday August 7th between 9 and noon Home Depot is doing a kids workshop. These workshops are FREE and are designed for kids aged 5-12 and tomorrow they are building a school bus pencil organizer. These workshops happen on the first Saturday of each month and I don't believe you have to preregister.

Kids also get a kids sized orange home depot apron and an achievement pin for attending.

Interested in checking out Sam's Club?

This weekend, August 6-8th, you can check out Sam's Club without a membership to see if it is right for your family during their open house. You can see the details of this deal here on their facebook page.

It also sounds like they won't be charging their usual 10% surcharge for non-member purchases. If you have been thinking about joining, this would be a great time to stop by and see what it is all about.

I don't have a Sam's Club membership anymore. I used to because my husband had a free one from his work, but we didn't use it. I do have a Costco membership and tend to use it on an almost weekly basis - sometimes more than I should!

Do you have a Sam's Club or Costco membership? If so, do you think it is a good value for your family?

$7 for a $15 certificate to Rumbi Island Grill

I LOVE Rumbi Island Grill, it is one of my favorite healthier fast food places to eat. I cannot get enough of their Sweet Potato fries with their horseradish sauce - trust me it is super delicious. Rumbi is my favorite food to pick up for picnics.

Today's Groupon is a $15 certificate to Rumbi for only $7, more than a 50% savings. The certificate is good through February 4, 2011 - so you have plenty of time to use it.

This deal is good today only, so make sure you get your certificate soon!

Have you had Rumbi before? If so, what did you think?

Walgreens Weekly Deals & 15% off coupon!

Walgreens posted a 15% off coupon on their facebook page for all of their fans good through August 4th. Go here to print it out. Note that it says you need to check out at the photo or cosmetics counter with this coupon.

Here are my favorite deals for the week and the prices don't reflect the 15% coupon, so the deals are that much better with it.

Alive! Energy Multivitamins (50 count) $10, get $10 RR
Use $1/1 printable
Cost = $9, get $10 RR - BETTER THAN FREE after RR!

Complete Multipurpose Solution (12 oz.) $7.99, get $8 RR

Get mail in rebate form printed at checkout so cost is FREE after rebate. The rebate will only print once per transaction and make sure to read the fine print for the limits on this deal. I haven't been in to get mine yet, so I haven't read them.

You can go here for a complete list of deals. Just remember that some coupons and values are regional so these deals may not be exact.
