The first Sunday of every new year this are 4 inserts of coupons in the paper. Don't forget to get your copy.
And last, but not least: Check out The House Fairy; she can help your children keep their room clean. This comes from Pamela I. Young who also does The Brat Factor. It may seem silly but who care if it works. Pamela is friends with FlyLady.
