Baby Cakes

Eli had his first IHOP kid's meal--Baby Cakes! 5 mini pancakes (of which he ate 2), scrambled eggs (which he hated) and a strip of bacon (which he thoroughly enjoyed) and of course I took a couple pics so I just wanted to share:

So I got a $10 off $10 or more purchase in the mail from Kohl's. I thought I'd try to find something for myself for a change, but of course that didn't happen. I didn't even go in the dressing room. I browsed and never really "saw" anything, but when I got to the baby department, they had a one day sale on these mix and match outfits, regularly $10/ea, on sale $5/ea. So I got him a complete outfit (in 18 months size) for FREE! I didn't even have to pay tax. Nice huh?

WAGS/Rite Aid 8/10 - 8/16

Thanks to the $1/2 BIC coupons, I hit the WAGS sale on Bic pens, 2 packs for $1, so all those were free, and the Rite Aid Bic Mark It! markers also 2 packs for $1, so completely free also. Super One had regular round stick bic pens 3 packs for $1, so I got 3 but gave them to my parents so they are not in the pic. The highlighters were from WAGS rainchecks, .39 a pack, which I paid for with a rebate GC from some free chocolate candy last month. I still have 25 more of the coupons, so I got rainchecks for more pens from WAGS and then I will definitely be stocked up!!
