Need Extra $$$?

Last week, one of the moms of the blogs I read discovered Amazon’s trade-in store, and ended up having almost 400 dollars worth of credit between six text books! After researching what the books were worth, she found that Amazon was offering me a very fair price. 

You are able to ship the books for free and quickly received the credit in my account.

Besides text books, Amazon also accepts electronics, movies and television series, video games, consoles, and accessories for trade. I would highly encourage you to check out this program. Paired with free shipping and price matching, the store credit could really come in handy.

Apple Picking – County Line Orchard, Apple Holler

You don’t need kids to go pick a peck of plump, delicious apples. OK, so you might not really need 10.5 pounds (i.e., an entire peck) of apples, but you can pick until your heart’s content! Apple season is in full swing, so why not head over to County Line Orchard in Hobart, Ind. or Apple Holler in Sturtevant, Wis. Just think, not only will you have plenty of apples to eat each day that will help keep the doctors away, but you’ll also have plenty of apples for delicious apple-based recipes!
Where: County Line Orchard: 200 S. County Line Road, Hobart, Ind.  //  Apple Holler: 5006 S. Sylvania Ave., Sturtevant, Wis.
When: County Line Orchard: 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Daily.  //  Apple Holler: 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Daily.
