Cody Dental Candy Donations
What will you do with all that candy? Consider taking it to Cody Dental. They will give you $1 for every pound of candy plus a bag full of prizes to take home. All candy will be sent to troops as part of Operation Gratitude.
Even with the great deals we can help you find on entertainment and a night out, sometimes the cost of the babysitter almost makes it impossible to go out. Enter SittingAround, a site that lets families form babysitting coops. With a coop you are able to trade babysitting with others in the group – and have it COST you nothing but the time of sitting other kids. (My kids love to call those “play dates” anyways).
