I have a big Thank You for Allison White, a PR Rep for Uniroyal Tires. She is is working on a campaign with Kim Danger of mommysavers.com all about family savings!! Allison introduced me to More Mileage For Your Money It is the site Kim Danger is doing! There are all kinds of great stories, coupons and more on the site!!
More Mileage for Your Money covers topics from saving while traveling in the summer to shopping and cooking efficiently. There will be a new series beginning in January. Their 2009 series included topics such as: getting your finances in order, pampering yourself for less, back to school on a budget and more. You can check out the site
Kim wants to show families that a budget doesn’t have to put a damper on family fun. Some of her tips include:
· Set up a neighborhood scavenger hunt. It will encourage them to work together in teams, with older kids helping out the younger ones. Divide kids into two teams and give each team a big bag and a list of things in your neighborhood, ranging from very easy to difficult to find.
· Have a fun family theme night at home. Get creative with food, activities and game games. Turn off cell phones, televisions, computers and other distractions so you can give loved ones your full attention.
· On a rainy day, built a fort with things you have around the house. Serve lunch and make shadow puppets in the fort.
Uniroyal is also having two giveaways that last all year. There is a monthly drawing for a $100 gift card, available at Uniroyal Tires As an extension of the 10th anniversary of the Uniroyal Soccer Program, Uniroyal will give away a soccer ball every day in 2010!! So be sure to check out More Mileage for Your Money and Uniroyal Tires!!
