Check out the Amazon Maleficent on Blu Ray & DVD Deal

Here’s a bit about the movie just in case you aren’t familiar:
MALEFICENT explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic SLEEPING BEAUTY and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

You can also check out my review of this amazingly fabulous movie as well!

Now, remember one of the biggest expenses that are incurred while we are “out and about” are eating expenses. So, if you are going to eat out – try to plan on eating out for lunch. Lunch menus are always cheaper than dinner menus.

I also recommend checking out Restaurant.com before you leave the house – this is an easy way to save a bundle at some of your local restaurants.

Make sure you pack snacks – you and the kids! I always have a Fiber One or Kashi Bar in my truck for me and a few goodies in my purse for the kiddos.

Most importantly…HAVE FUN!

jazzercise groupon

If you aren’t familiar with Jazzercise – here is some background info:

Today, Jazzercise takes its aerobic techniques from a variety of sources that include jazz dance, hip-hop, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program’s move set. Two-time Dancing with the Stars champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of the improvisational routines, although her advanced skills aren’t needed to get the most out of classes. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers—with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers—are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background.

Have FUN saving AND Jazzercising :)
