Kids Bowl for Free This Summer

How would you like your kids to bowl for free this summer? It’s possible, thanks to three programs available nationwide in the United States and, in some instances, at Canadian bowling lanes as well. Each kids bowl free program works slightly differently, and, from what I can tell, there are no overlapping locations from one program to another. That means that you could possibly get three times as much free bowling each day this summer. Here are the details: AMF Summer Unplugged: This free bowling program at AMF lanes begins well before school lets out–May 14th–and runs through September...

Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Saturday is May 5th or Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday that celebrates Mexico’s victory over France in 1862. It has evolved into a huge food-related holiday here in the United States.

Troubleshooting Coupons.com and Firefox

As you know from time to time I’ll share links to coupons that you can print out from the Internet and bring with you when you grocery shop. Most often I’ll include those from Coupons.com (see examples below), because I find that Coupons.com offers the most variety.
