Family deals
Starting Thursday is your chance to score some terrific deals on all kinds of kid and family stuff. The Just Between Friends Fall sale starts this Thursday, September 29 and runs through Saturday, October 1. If you’ve not been to one of these before it’s a way for families to sell some items they no longer need and for you to score some savings. The sale takes place at Georgetown Church of Christ, 1525 W University Ave, Georgetown, TX 78628 (Hwy 29 & DB Wood Rd).
The folks at The Lost Pines Resort in Bastrop are offering a great way for you to help the fire victims. Between now through December 30th if you book a room at the Hyatt Daily Rate using the code "We Care" they will donate $25 to the Bastrop Ministerial Alliance. This is a beautiful place with great restaurants, a golf course, spa and lots of family activities. Go here to book a room. Thanks Jill for the tip!
Hewlitt Packard has some downloadable movie characters sheets which are great for coloring. You’ll find everything from Shrek to the characters from Madagascar to those from A Christmas Carol.
Amazon.com also has a bunch of free kid music downloads. You'll find the Wiggles even a Sesame Street Sampler.

Radiant Plumbing, an Austin plumbing company, is hoping to save 3 million gallons of water by offering free flappers. A flapper helps fix your toilet if you flush it and it keeps running. A running toilet can waste as much as 200 gallons of water a day. This deal is only good for Austin area customers and is free if all you need is a standard flapper. If you need something special ordered, there will be a charge. But if you've got a running toilet this could be the chance to get a free fix. Go here to learn more. Thanks to Brad and Sarah for the tip!
