Giveaway: $100 Walmart Gift Card from Ecoscraps

ALWAYSSUMMER

 

I am excited that school is almost over and summer is almost here. I love being outside with my kids during summer, and I enjoy spending time with friends and inviting them over for a summer BBQ. And that means it’s time to get our yards ready for entertaining! When it comes to your yard, don’t you want what is best for it? I know I do!

That is why I look for ways I can be eco-friendly while still giving my yard the TLC it really needs. For me, I do that by using Ecoscraps.

Ecoscraps compost is a mixture of decomposed organic materials like food waste, branches, leaves and grass clippings. It is used in garden soil to promote healthy, sustained plant growth. What makes Ecoscraps Organic Compost so awesome is the added benefit of food waste.

Each bag of Ecoscraps Compost contains up to 50 lbs. of recycled food waste. Food waste that would normally be sent to landfills but instead is reused to fortify your soil! Ecoscraps Compost is an all-natural organic soil amendment that contains no poop or synthetic chemicals.

Benefits of Using Ecoscraps in Your Garden Include:

  • Increases organic material
  • Improves soil structure
  • Moisture retaining

In addition to using it in your garden, you can use Ecoscraps in planters too! Brittanie from Simplistically Living recently made these Color Block Wooden Planters and used Ecoscraps in them. They are so cute!

You can head to Walmart to find Ecoscraps and get your garden looking and feeling great.

Let’s Have Some Fun with a Giveaway!

8 Fun, Cheap and Free Summer Activities & Ideas

Summer Activites - Fun, Cheap and Free

I am so excited for summer and am looking forward to doing activities with my kids. Recently I had a friend ask me about easy, fun, cheap and free activities that she could do with the kids during the summer, so I’ve compiled a list of what you can do with your kids this summer that won’t cost you too much money.

1.) Kid’s Movie Clubs

cinemark summer movie clubhouse

Cinemark Theaters has the Cinemark Summer Movie Clubhouse where you can see kid-friendly movies all summer long for $1 or less. If you purchase 10 movies for $5, then it’s just $0.50 each show! Or there is an option to pay $1.00 for each show you attend. And all movies are rated G or PG. To get the tickets, go to the ticket office the day you are seeing your first movie and you can purchase a punch pass for $5.00. Parents and kids all get in for the same price. Head over to Summer Movie Clubhouse to see which Cinemark movie theaters are participating near you.

 

Regal Theaters 2016 Movies
Regal Theaters also has a kid’s movie club called Summer Movie Express where kids movies are only $1. The movies are G & PG. Just purchase the tickets at the box office. Head over here to see if there is a theater near you and to find out what movies will be playing.

2.) Kids Bowl Free

Kids Bowl Free Logo

Register your children at KidsBowlFree.com to receive two free games of bowling for each of your children daily during the summer. Keep in mind that you do have to pay for the shoe rental. To see which bowling alleys are participating near you, head over here. My girls have loved this activity every summer. My area in Tooele is not doing the kids bowl free program this year, but they do have a $2 Slammin’ Summer Special.

 

3.) Kids Skate Free

 

kids skate free

Select skating rinks across the country are offering a Kids Skate Free program this summer.  Head over here and pick your state to see if there is a participating skating rink in your area. Most ages that can skate free are 12 and younger. Keep in mind that you will have to pay for skate rentals. Not all states have this program set up, and unfortunately there isn’t a participating skating rink in Utah.

 

4.) Fun & Frugal Summer Activities for Kids

Odysseo by Cavalia: The Most Amazing Show

Odysseo Cavalia

This past week, my husband and I had the chance to go to the Odysseo by Cavalia show in Sandy, Utah. If you live near Salt Lake City, you’ve probably seen the huge white tents by South Towne Mall. The show was INCREDIBLE! If you have ever been to a show in Vegas or New York, this show is just as good. So if you have a chance, I really recommend going.

 

Odysseo Tent

The tickets are expensive, but you won’t have to drive to Vegas to see this once-in-a-lifetime show that is literally within miles of where you live. To save some money, use the code SOCIALUT to get 10% off Gold Level and above tickets. There is also the option to save money on tickets by purchasing family discounts packages or purchasing obstructed view seats (which I hear aren’t bad views). Odyssey by Cavalia has extended their matinee and evening performances through June 6, 2016. Head over to Cavalia’s site for details, including pricing, dates and show times.

Odysseo - Standing by Tent

Odysseo - Standing by VIP Tent

When we first arrived at the tents around 5:30 p.m., we headed to the Rendezvous VIP tent where we received our tickets. While in the tent, we enjoyed a buffet dinner. It was delicious and included little quiches, chicken, steak and salads. They also had popcorn and drinks.

Odysseo - Before Performance

Odysseo - Full House

A few minutes before 7 p.m. we found our seats, which was on row 6. It was a great view of the stage. On a side note, I’ve been told that the obstructed view seats aren’t bad and that you can still see the performance really good. To begin the show, Odysseo started by projecting questions and answers across the curtains so the audience could learn more about the horses and show.

Here are a few fun facts that I learned about the show that night:
