    couponmom, I'm not sure about the eye exam, but for glasses, I've heard is a very good way to get cheap eyeglasses. Clark Howard is a big fan, and I just ordered a pair this week. I'll have a better idea how great of a deal it is once I have them, but it was $25. The prices start at around $6.95 for a full pr. of glasses.

    Just a reminder that you should have your eyeglasses checked to make sure they match your RX when you go to places like Sam's, BJ's, Walmart, or online. I've had bad luck with all these options. Granted, my RX is complicated, but I think it's easy for places that do huge volume to make RX errors. It's always a good idea to have your eye doctor's office or another optician to double check that the eyeglasses actually match your RX.

    @djoyner...WOW what a deal! Where are the coupons from? Thanks. :)

    Just be careful of who you get an eye exam through -- make sure you have some good reviews. We went to Fuquay Eye Care and they didn't do a good job with my one kid. Completely wrong diagnosis & rx. We ended up going to Duke for second opinion which was worth it for a kid. Got the right rx & then went to BJs for glasses -- $70 for a pair of kids frames & glasses with a rush and got them the next day. Fantastic!

    Nakabi, the email with the link is on the way to you. Hope it works! And for what it's worth, you need to be smart to use a smart phone, and most of the time I definitely do NOT qualify LOL! I can't repeat here the name I call my smart phone most of the time ;)

    I picked up some 20% coupons at work (Kohls) to use on tax free weekend for anyone who plans on shopping there. I live near Starbucks on 55 in Cary if you like to meet up. I have 24 but can get more. My email is:
