Cheap fun

I am frugal by nature and love finding good bargains and fun things to do for cheap! This week's good deal was found at CVS drugstore. while I was shopping last weekend to pick up some household things. I wasn't even looking at the toys, but happened to walk past the christmas clearance section and saw this cool kids' laptop there. There wasn't a price on it, so I had my son take it to the cashier to scan it and it was $4.99. Pretty good deal! My kids had been eyeing the more expensive V-tech ones, but I couldn't bring myself to pay $40 for a kiddie laptop that probably wouldn't last that long anyway. So I grabbed this one and also a couple of mini-tea sets for 50 cents for my girls. Here's my 5 yo boy and 10yo daughter playing on the computer.

Another plus-it's all educational, so they're practicing their math and spelling, so I'm happy! :-)
