Free Kids Glasses at Target Optical

I think we may have had a post on this a few months ago but I just wanted to make sure that people knew this was still going.

Target is giving away a pair of glasses free to kids 12 and under. You have to have a valid prescription and choose from select frames. I just got back from the Centerville Utah store and there were about 30 or so frames to choose from.

This promotion is not listed anywhere on Target's website, so you may want to call ahead and see if your local store is participating. Some stores are also requiring appointments.

Since this is not advertised it may end at any time, so the sooner you get in the better.

I was told that it was one free pair per family, so if you need glasses for more than one kid you may want to double check that.

The lenses on the free glasses are the scratch resistant/anti glare polycarbonite.

For a $25 fee you can add their protection plan which covers the glasses for 15 months.

In tough economic times many families have to make a choice as to whether or not they can afford to replace their kids glasses. Thank you Target for helping families!

If you do use this promotion, please take a minute to thank Target for their help!

Using Shoe Boxes

I swore up and down growing up that I would not do certain things my parents did. But alas...I was doomed from the start. I am a frugal person.

Sigh...yes...I even use empty shoe boxes for many things...organizing, crafts, storage.....should I be embarrassed? I'm not! I am also a firm believer that kids don't need the newest fad or every new toy to have fun. I do buy toys for my kids, but I think it is also good to let them use their imagination. Shoe boxes are perfect for this!

I try every way I can to make something extra or leftover work for a need that I have. My parents used old shoe boxes for organizing, and so do I. Here are a few ideas I have used empty shoe boxes for:
  • organizing socks, undies, etc in dresser drawers. This works especially well with the kids,and when they help put their clothes away, each item has "a home" to go to.
  • boxes for older receipts in envelopes (organized by year)
  • decoupage the box with scrapbook paper and use it for pretty storage
  • each of the kids decorate their own box for their "secret box" where they put special items. I like to use contact paper and stickers for this.
  • organizing small toys, books, and other travel items in the car
  • organizing various supplies in the garage
  • baby doll bed
  • storage for art supplies
I have also covered shoe boxes with wrapping paper, fabric, and scrapbook paper to make them look pretty and stylish, just like the storage boxes you see in the store.

Here are some additional crafts for kids to use shoe boxes for:

How to make a fairy house from two shoe boxes
A Guitar from a shoe box
Valentine Box
Bean Bag Toys House
Puppet Theater

Using extra shoe boxes for all these things is also a great way to reuse and recycle! What have you used empty shoe boxes for?

Doing Things Yourself

What services do you pay for that you could do at home? This takes some thought, but there is generally some things that you can change.....things you can do yourself and keep more cash in your pocket. Many times you may have to learn a new skill in order to complete the task at home. But that is all about being self-reliant, right? Maybe things like:

  • haircuts for the kids (my boys for sure)
  • detailing the car
  • changing the oil in the car
  • pedicures/manicures
  • lawn maintenance
  • basic home repairs
  • Growing your own vegetables
Sometimes you have to weigh the amount of money against the amount of time it will take you to fix/complete the task. And sometimes it isn't worth it, depending what is going on in your life. I just think this is a good concept to think about, and maybe try one new area to save money where you weren't before.

Another way to get a service or "perk" is by trading with someone else, or working a bit in exchange for what you want.

For example, I wanted a gym membership a few years ago but didn't want to pay the monthly fee, setup fee, etc. So I did some checking and I got hired to work in the daycare at the gym once a week, for a three hour shift. Because I did that, I got my gym membership free! I was able to take my younger kids with me for free when I worked and the commitment was easy. It saved me $360 a year!

I used to teach piano lessons, but no longer do so. I am attempting to teach my own children, but that can be difficult at times. For awhile a friend and I traded teaching children...she taught my son and I taught hers. It worked great for us while we did it.

Do you do any type of trading services? What advice/tips/info can you share about doing your own services or exchanging? What do you do on your own to save money?
