Summer Reading Programs are back!

Summer’s almost here and that means summer reading programs!!! I don’t have a child in school (not till September!!) but we still love the summer reading programs! With most programs, the child can read himself, or, if he’s too young, the parent can read to him! This works great for us! It gives us something to work towards, gives the kids a feeling of accomplishment, and is just a very nice freebie!

Borders: Read any 10 books, fill out the form, and bring it in to pick out one free book while supplies last! Program goes from 06/01-09/05.

Barnes and Noble: Read any 8 books, fill out the log, and bring it in to get one free book while supplies last! This program goes from 05/24-09/06.

Half Price Books: Read 600+ minutes, bring in the completed log during the turn-in dates and get a $5 gift card. They also have top winners for each age category with a $20 gift card as the top prize! Program starts in June, and you can turn your logs in from 07/25-08/07 for the gift card!

Local library programs: I have never heard of a local public library NOT having a summer reading program! The prizes vary, but in the past we’ve gotten a book and some coupons for free ice cream at a couple of local places. Check with your local library in the next few weeks to sign up!


Between graduation and Mother’s Day, the photo deals are great right now!

Canvas People has a great deal right now: they’re offering a FREE 8×10 photo canvas OR $50 towards a larger sized photo canvas. All you have to pay is shipping, which is $14.95! That’s a GREAT deal for a high quality canvas. I’d love to get a few pictures done of our parents and grandparents when we get a bigger house. I love my little house, but it lacks wall space!

If you’re looking for a great Mother’s Day or graduation present, check out Canvas People HERE to get your free canvas!

FREE 8×10 at Walgreens today only!

Today only, you can get a FREE 8×10 at Walgreens by using the code DEAL8X10. These deals are the only way that I get photos for our picture frames around here!

Just make sure you check ‘in-store pick-up’ on or you’ll have to pay for shipping!

I’m so excited that I JUST snapped an adorable picture of my three boys this morning in their little church clothes and they look SOOO cute! I’m gonna go get my free photo!

Free thank you card to the troops

Xerox is running a GREAT promotion right now. You can send a thank you card to a member of the armed forces, on them. Xerox will pay to print it and send it. You can choose from one of 82 designs (all created by children of various ages) and you can choose a pre-made message to put on it, or choose ‘other’ to write your own.

I chose to write my own, and to tell the person that we’ll be praying for them daily through the Advent season. It always blesses me to hear of someone praying for me personally, so I hope it will bless whoever gets my card.

You don’t get to choose who it will go to, but it will go to someone who is defending our country with his or her life.

How awesome is that?!
