Prep My Journey

Archive for April 2012


You can enjoy any Frappuccino blended beverages for half price May 4 – May 13 between 3 – 5 PM at participating Starbucks Stores.

I personally think coffee should be hot but I am willing to give it a try!



I received a flyer that states 24ct Crayola Crayons are 4/$1 today and tomorrow (April 27th and 28th) at Toys R Us. You must buy 4 to get this offer (reg price $1.29 ea). There is no limit listed.

It probably doesn’t seem like much but if you have kids you know how much they love to color and lose/break the crayons in the process. These are also great for travel, as additional gifts, grab bags, stocking stuffers, donations, etc.

You can also check out Babies R Us, they usually run the same sales.

Baby Center – How much will your child cost you? Based on region, salary and age of child. – Gives you more specifics. You can choose the starting and ending age of your child.
