4 Family Vacations Inspired By Your Child's (or your) Favorite Disney Movie

While Walt Disney World may come to mind at first when planning a Disney themed vacation, it isn’t the only place one can walk in the footsteps of their favorite Disney character. 

For your next vacation, let your child’s (or your) cinematic obsession spur a getaway that brings the Disney magic to real life. Whether channeling your inner Capt. Jack sparrow, rubbing fins with Ariel’s mermaid friends, visiting Princess Tiana’s stompin’ grounds, or building a snowman like Elsa and Anna, these vacation ideas are sure to please the whole family!

2017 City-Wide Garage Sales in South-Central Kansas

We all love ‘em.  We all want to know when and where they are.  And now I have it...
Your 2017 list of City-Wide Garage Sales for the South Central Kansas area for this summer.
I have only listed the towns that are within a 100 mile radius of Wichita.  I'll try to make a separate list for areas outside that 100 miles as well as a July-Fall list.

Feel free to share this! 

And if I left one off, PLEASE let me know by sending me a quick email to:
amanda@procrastinatingmommy.com

To see a list of garage sales in/around the City of Wichita:  Please visit THIS site (Wichita on the Cheap). 

Edited to add:
  • Winfield does not have a set city-wide date but residents usually have their sales the weekend BEFORE Walnut Valley Festival  (which is in September)
  • Hutchinson does not have a set city-wide date either but the Hutch News does hold a "Monster Sale" at the State Fair Grounds on the second Saturday of March (so unfortunately we've missed that date - darn it!) 
  • Canton and Galva:  City-Wide sales April 29th 
  • Hillsboro will be April 22nd 
  • Wichita does not have a set city-wide garage sale date but certain neighborhoods or communities will hold garage sales.  The best way to ADD your listing or check for Wichita area garage sales is by visiting "Wichita on the Cheap" here.

and Fall dates....



{Note:  This is the list that I was provided by the listed cities.  If the cities choose to cancel or change the dates, I am not responsible for your time or gas --- Yes I had to disclose this because it happened last year, lol}

HAPPY SALE-ING!

This is why you should NOT use DirecTV and/or AT&T (they have scam written all over their contract)

I’m not sure how many people out there have had a dealing with DirecTV and or AT&T but I have no reservations in holding back my frustrations with them.

So here it goes...

We signed up for a discounted bundle for AT&T U-Verse and DirecTV satellite.  All was okay the first couple of months except when they failed to ever mail me my $250.00 gift card that I was excited to receive upon signing up.

Looks like that’s a known issue.  Good luck ever receiving said gift card.

But that wasn’t the straw.

After a few months, my bills started varying in pricing.  Every month I would have to call and have my bill straightened out.  It was annoying.  And irritating.  And also common.

But that wasn’t the straw either.  {Read More}
