Do You Do Superpoints?

Today I'm having a lot of luck on the Superpoints lucky button.  I hit 25 twice, 5 once, and 2 points 3 times, for a total of 66 points.  I only get 30 tries a day, since I don't have any referrals. 

If you aren't a member of Superpoints, I would suggest signing up.  It's a fairly slow earner if you don't have referrals, but it's super easy.  You just click the lucky button and see if you win anything.  I do it while I'm doing other stuff online, so it doesn't take up much time at all.   They offer all kinds of gift cards, and they start at a $5 giftcard for 600 points.  Even basic members can now cash out at 1000 points or more, while platinum can cash out at 500 points. 

Basic members (no referrals, or only 1) get 30 clicks a day, while gold (2-4 referrals) get 50 clicks and platinum (5+ friends) get 100 clicks a day.

I actually have two 25 point invites that I got today, if you are interested.  Just click the link, sign up, and validate your email address and you will get 25 points!

Clearance School Supplies

School has been back in session here for about 2.5 weeks.  That means that a lot of back to school stuff is on clearance.  We bought most of Elliott's supplies before school started, but waited until the clearance sales to buy the stuff we just wanted, but didn't have to have.

Some of the best deals we've found were lunchboxes at 50% off (he takes his lunch everyday, so we got 2 new ones to add to the rotation of the ones he used in kindergarten, since he leaves them at school sometimes), and crayons at $.25 each.  The cheapest we found Crayola crayons before school started was $.40, so when we were able to get them for $.25 each, we grabbed a few boxes.  We choose names from the Christmas tree at Walmart or KMart every year, and always include a box of crayons and a coloring book or two if we choose children the right age. :)  Elliott often gets crayons for Christmas, too.

We also picked up a few more notebooks for $.16-25 each to use at home.  Elliott needed 2 for school this year, and that will probably last all year, or at least most of it, since he's only in first grade.

We also found some Lego school supplies on clearance.  Elliott is REALLY into Legos right now, so he actually used his own money to buy the pencil sharpener and pencils.  They were on clearance for a decent price, so I feel like he used his money wisely.
