Wednesday’s Weekly Tip: Get a Free Book Today!

I couldn’t help but share a fun tip for all the Oxford readers out there.  I don’t know if you have ever been to Barefoot Books (the new children’s bookstore in Summertown), but you should, and you should make today the day to visit!  We go for the story time there from time to time and to be honest I have never actually bought a book, due to the somewhat high prices.  Hard to pay £10 on a paperback when I know I get them at the library book sale for .20p each.  Anyways,  when we went in today I was asked to fill out a ten minute survey and along with that I could choose any book for FREE!  I completed it in 5 minutes and picked up the jungle boogie book that my daughter loves, along with the music dvd included in the flap, for nothing!  So, head over to Barefoot Books and ask for the survey and free book. Even if you don’t have kids, pick one up for a friend and enjoy a delicious latte in their storyteller’s cafe while you are there.

Other readers not in Oxford, do you have any tips you could share about local deals in your neck of the woods?!  We’d love to start sharing them on our Wednesday Weekly Tips!

Wednesday’s Weekly Tip: Travel on a budget

So, here it is: we slowly started gathering loads of helpful tips for the ‘graduate wife journey’ from readers or from other great sources online.  We started thinking …. what should we do with all this helpful stuff?  It seemed like a lot to cram into a few postings here and there, so we opted for a weekly (or close to it) tips post.


Wednesday’s Weekly Tip is debuting.  If you have any good tips for anything from living on a budget, sharing the graduate journey with your spouse, to great sites to buy/DIY kids toys or even something as random as how to get out a hard stain, please share!  We have gathered quite a few already and would love to feature something from you.  So here goes.  Happy Tip Day!

You will remember our amazing friend and former graduate wife, Katherine, from her post here on TGW a while back.  Please join us as we take a visit to her blog for our first installation of Wednesday’s Weekly Tip for a fabulous little bit on: How to Travel on a Budget.  (yahoo!)
