Let’s Go (Back) to Chipotle

Let’s Go (Back) to Chipotle

Remember that time everyone was freaking out because people were getting E coli at Chipotle? Neither do we (selective memory FTW) – besides, shorter lines are awesome. In an effort to put all that lost business behind them, Chipotle now has a new trick up their sleeve to lure you back to their restaurants: free tacos for your kids. “Every Sunday in September, kids eat FREE when you buy a burrito, bowl, an order of tacos or salad.” They’ll even throw in a free Dragons Love Tacos activity sheet to boot. Nice touch there but, seriously, you had us at free tacos (we’ll be fine). Get the deets here.

“Are you really still paying for that?” When you have kids you pay for a lot of things. Diapers, wipes, food, bottles, binkies etc. Then you add on all your normal bills and life becomes stressful. In your 30’s you begin to pay for so many different things you start to lose track. Take this for example just the other day my darling wife says “what did you buy at Amazon last week for $9?” “Nothing as I recall.” Well, it turns out when we cut the cord last year but wanted to watch Homeland (Quinns not dead) I added on Showtime to our Prime account. Well, it’s been months and I had forgotten about it and we haven’t watched Showtime in Prime in that ensuing time.

Truebill would have fixed that. Truebill is an app that scours all of your subscriptions and keeps you up to date on what you are paying for, when and how much. You have a one-stop shop where you can cancel and unneeded services instantly and use that money for more important things like late night Wendys runs. All those handy subscriptions really add up by the end of the year so just think about how much money you could be saving with this FREE service. Download today and thank us later.

Walkie Chalk

Walkie Chalk

It might not happen this summer or next summer but sometime soon dad you gonna realize that you old AF. We’re not really sure how old, old AF is but it’s somewhere between the ages of, “I can do anything, I am invincible” and “I was making chalk drawings in the driveway with my kids and my back seized up and now I am watching reruns of Martin while I lay on the couch icing my oblique.” Luckily some other adults probably had the same problem and invented Walkie Chalk, which to be honest is so simple that we are kicking ourselves that we didn’t think of it first. Walkie Chalk is the perfect sidewalk chalk holder that allows everyone from your toddler to your grandfather to easily and ergonomically partake in the beautiful art of chalk drawing. So all your sidewalk Picassos can save your back and knees and join in on the fun with Walkie Chalk. Oh, and yeah kids love it too!
