You may know by now that I am a homeschooling mom. One thing I’ve learned over the years of homeschooling is that many of the activities we enjoy will offer group discounts, regardless of whether or not we are going for “educational purposes.” 

Just to give you a couple of examples, Lion Country Safari offers a big discount for an advance reservation of 10 or more (from $27.50 down to $17 per adult). Zoo Miami offers anywhere from a 10-25% discount on admission depending on the number of people going. There are many more than this – try museums, water parks, etc. So, before leaving, pick up the phone and invite a few friends to join you and you will all save money and enjoy a fun time with some friends!

Also, be sure to check on the options for annual passes to some of your favorites. Many times the annual pass is about the price of two admissions and then you have an entire year to enjoy it.

If you’re not a member of Groupon or Living Social, you really should join. They are both free to join, but offer incredible discount savings when enough people purchase the deal online. Offers are sent via email.

I hope you find this information useful!

Now for some other good stuff!

All You Magazine March 2012 Coupon List – Debbie Does Coupons has been kind enough to provide a list of coupons that are in Walmart’s All You Magazine for May.  You can check it out here  to see if you want to stop by and pick up a copy. I believe it retails for $2.49 per issue if you buy it at Walmart, but you can get a subscription for $1.66 per issue here.  However, I will tell you that sometimes the subscription version has fewer coupons than the newsstand version.
