Share your deals & meals: April Fools Edition

Posted April 1, 2015

Mini savings account

Are you going to prank your kids, spouse, boss or cashier today? Here's the place to share it! I have a food prank planned for the kids at dinner.

For dinner, I am only going to serve raw vegetables (with a bunch of ones they really don't like including onions) and tell the kids we are all going on a vegan raw food diet with no sauces, dressings or anything other than raw veggies. I will tell them everything will be uncooked from now on and we'll only be drinking water and veggie juice from now on. Since they are both teens, they may believe it for about half a second - probably not. But I am not one for mean or terribly messy pranks so I hope they enjoy it. The funny thing is that if I told them we were only eating fruit from now on, they would probably be perfectly happy.

Found a deal today? Here's the place to share it.

Have a question that doesn't fit into any of the other threads? Here's the place to ask it.

Want to share your frugal menu for the evening? We'd love to hear it!

    I am going to prank my Cub Scouts tonight. We started a new incentive program a few weeks ago. If they follow all the class rules that night then they get a reward at the end of the meeting. I've done candy, chocolates, stickers, etc. Tonight once they've graded themselves and know who is getting the reward I'm going to pass out celery as their treat. I'll let them fuss for a minute or so before I pull out the brownies :)

    Thanks for the code, Sharon! I'm glad you scored the SB yesterday. It definitely makes it much easier to get most of the codes when they give us the times and locations to find them. :-)
