Free Chick-fil-a?!?!?!?!


So its free chick-fil-a day provided you dress like a COW. So we dressed our little man up (see pics) and put on a hat and he got us a few free meals. We are hopeful that the manager will put up his picture on their facebook page (instant celeb... and perhaps Chick-fil-a for LIFE?)

So get your Cow on and go get some free FOOD!

Roof over your head... who knows where...

Want to travel and don't have the money?

I am sure that you may have wanted to travel to Germany but you needed to come up with the cash to fly there, stay in a hotel, and sight see. What would you do if you didn't have to save up the other money to stay in a hotel?

To start - if you haven't stayed in a hostel yet they are usually a much cheaper than staying at a hotel... and usually twice the fun!

For a free stay - check out a few of the following options: Couch Surfing, Hospitality Club,
Global Freeloaders

Couch Surfing has even become a way of life for many people - Check out this entire camp of Couch Surfers.

We used couch surfing in New Zealand and loved staying with Kamera and Harley. They have a great website (or two...) and we hope they are still planning to visit us in the USA when they make it here. They are on a 10YR trip around the world visiting all the indigenous people groups. Check out their travels here:

Almost Free Cookbook for iphone users

I finally found something cheap enough to post here!  If you have an iphone, check out the "How to Cook Everything" app.   (It may be available for other phones as an app as well, I just haven't checked).   This app is basically the cookbook by the same name but in app form.  The cookbook retails for $35, and at $1.99, this app is a steal!  The app also includes a cool shopping list feature that lets you make a list based on the ingredients in the recipe you are using. Or, you can make your own list of whatever you want. Bon Apetit!

Toll Booth Refund / Reject Collector

Have Exact Change? USE IT! Go through the exact change lanes at the toll booth and as you throw in your change be sure to check the "REJECTS" bin. You may get some pennies and a few Canadian quarters... or you may strike it rich and get a pile of Quarters. Let me know how much you get as a reject collector.

(My best day - $12.63 -- Beat that!)

From one fed up with toll(s)-beat the system-driver,
