         I used to have so much trouble choosing my costumes, but you know who has no trouble at all choosing my costumes? MY SON.  He is very opinionated when it comes to what I wear, Halloween or not.

3 Websites To Score Free Samples

So, you like to save money and get some fun freebies in the mail? If the answer is YES, then check out these 3 freebie sampling sites.

We do his homework together every week to strengthen the concepts he learns there. I love his school and his fearless…
