Meet me at the Corner: A virtual Field Trip for 6 - 12 year olds

Thanks to a comment left in a post this afternoon, I just learned about a kid friendly site called
MEET ME AT THE CORNER. Children can have an interview with the Park Ranger at Balboa Park in San Diego, California, learn about the history of Balboa Park, the Pan America Exhibition, and a bit about the work of a park ranger.

Along with the original content created by the professional staff, MEET ME AT THE CORNER is open to kid- produced content. The current video was submitted by 11 year old Sam. How cool is that!! He interviews an animal behaviorist at the Denver Zoo. It is obvious that the episode was written and filmed by Sam but the MMATC staff did a great job of editing and adding photos and links to take the episode to a new level.

MEET ME AT THE CORNER, Virtual Field Trips for Kids is a series of educational video podcasts for kids ages 6-12. New episodes are uploaded every two weeks, with a Learning Corner of questions and extended activities, a list of recommended books and links to fun websites about each topic.

This is a great website for kids, parents, teachers and homeschool families.

What to Buy When Guide for September

One of the keys to snagging a good deal is timing. Also, working with manufacturer discounts, clearance sales, off-season discounts, and coupon and discount codes is important. Here are the September deals you can find:

Furniture
The best time to buy furniture is Feb-April and Aug-October. So do some planning and look around during these times, you'll find the deals.


Clothing
Off-Season, clearance, and try going on Thursdays. If you wait until the weekend you're likely to find other folks ransacking for the best deals and selections which means things have been picked through. And don’t forget to bring coupons!

Appliances
Best time is September and October as new models are coming out.


Car
First, shop online. You can find out the price of cars online and even locate what and where to buy what you want. Next, the next year's models come out in early fall and to make room the old inventory has to go. Shop in the early fall. Go at the end of the month - it's all about quotas. If the dealership has made their monthly quotas, they are likely to make a deal. The end of the year again is another great time as they are trying to get rid of all the old inventory.

Food and others:

Cereals, back to school snacks, hamburger, hot dogs, condiments, spaghetti sauce, cars, lawn mowers.
