Apparently the only thing I could think of to follow-up my last post (and your amazing comments, thank you!) is embarrassing my poor toddler son, now left alone with me every morning for four hours.
But it's for a good reason, you see, because I'm doing it to challenge you to do the same thing.
Okay, maybe not embarrass your son, but it's always nice to make sure you have those embarrassing pictures in case they decide to win gold medals or go to Harvard and you can be that kooky mom who took pics of them wearing your $899 Carmen Mark Valvo dress that you got for $9.99.
Do you think he'll appreciate the amazing bargain?
So, go find your freaking best bargain ever. Write about it (or where you tend to find them), and/or take a picture, preferably of it on or with your kid because bargains are always better when they are displayed on cute spawn but it's certainly not required -- got a dog? a cat? a talking parrot?
Actually, no pics are required -- just make sure you follow the simple directions here (two links and an email to enter), and you'll be playing along in one of our blog blasts.
Yes, it's shameless promotion, but there are prizes involved (eight gift cards to be exact) and what else were you really going to post this weekend? The Olympics? C'mon. Seriously.
Plus, if you've got bleeding boobs, a sore crotch, or a sassy 4-year-old who has decided to act like she's 13 and is currently staring at the inside of a corner until she changes her attitude (does that work? I'm hoping!), then it's a great distraction.
Mir also wrote at BlogHer asking for your Back to School Bargain tips. No prizes, but Mr. Linky has been summoned and it's a great way to gain traffic and share your brilliance. But do the blog blast too!
