This morning I came across a GREAT deal in my inbox. If you are not familiar with Signing Time, I strongly encourage you to check them out right now. I was first introduced to Signing Time 5 years ago when my oldest was just a wee little guy. I had briefly heard about it from another mom, but I was made a fan when I came across their board books and DVDs at our local library. They provide a fun, hands on way for kids to learn while also teaching them ASL (American Sign Language)! He and I both quickly fell in love with the series, and since then all my other kids have enjoyed it just as much. We also use their Rachel and the Treeschoolers videos (for ages PK-3) in our homeschool curriculum. 🙂
And today you can get a FREE video download of Signing Time Welcome to School! This fun video teaches signs and songs about going to school and all the fun things that go along with a school day. It introduces 30+ signs!
All you have to do is CLICK HERE. That will take you to the Signing Time web site where you can enter your email address to have the download link e-mailed to you. It’s really that simple.
Even better, is that if this video is shared with 500,00 new families by October 1, a second free video will be released!
Toward the end of last year I realized I have way too many notebooks in use at one time. I have one for everything in my life: one for budgeting and bills, one for lesson plans, one for recipes and meal planning, one for each Bible study I’m currently doing, one for to-do lists, one for being creative (ok, maybe two or three for that). Along with all of those, I also have a daily/weekly planner. Something had to give, so I decided to design my own planner/home management binder to at least cut down on the number of times in one week I go hunting for one notebook or another.
Last night I was playing around with my lesson plans pages and decided to share one here. Subjects can be written in the first column, and my copy has my boys’ names in the two top rectangles. The subject lines that are divided are for the subjects they work separately on -math, reading, and handwriting in our case.

I love Snickers bars. They are definitely my favorite candy. I’m also a fan of M&M’s. Snickers though, are my first love. They keep this pregnant girl sane after a crazy day. Strangely, I don’t usually eat a lot of sweets though. However, sometimes I just need a Snickers. How about getting some of these (or other Mars chocolate candies) for free? Go to www.realchocolate.com every Friday through Sept. 25 and you can register to receive a coupon for FREE chocolate. Yes, it works. I’ve been participating for the last several weeks. I’m going to be very sad when this offer ends.
Free chocolate is what Works For Me. Do you have a tip that works for you? Join us at We Are That Family, and share your tip!

I admit that I am addicted to free stuff. I love getting little trial size stuff in the mail. Sometimes I even get coupons for free regular size items. I sign up for stuff online all the time, so I thought I would share some freebies with the rest of my blogging buddies.
Here are some great deals and websites that I have come across lately.
I just came across this blog tonight, and I love it! It is updated often with new freebies and sweepstakes.
Melting Pot’s Club Fondue
“Club Fondue offers fantastic fondue features, including wine tastings, food samplings, invitations to special events and advanced holiday reservation privileges. As a member of the Club, you’ll receive a free Chocolate Fondue for two when you sign up!”
Baskin-Robbins Birthday Club
They send you a coupon for a free scoop of ice cream for your birthday. You can also sign up multiple members of your household. – Go ahead, make up an extra kid. You know you want to. 🙂
**TIP: I suggest creating an extra e-mail account before signing up for stuff like this online. They often require you to sign up for newsletters and/or send your e-mail address to other companies. The second account will keep you from having to sift through the junk e-mails everyday. You can check it once a week or so and only look at the deals that interest you.
