  1. I used to use ebates/rakuten. But in the past year they became very unreliable as far as crediting my 'shopping trips', so I don't bother anymore.
  2. It's been years since I've found any good Christmas gifts/deals on Amazon. So much cheap junk to wade through. And I hate it when I search for something very specific and I get a lot of 'sponsored' off brands instead of just the brand I searched for.
  3. I wouldn't write anything to her. I don't think the main 'problem' is the t-shirt material... the problem is that you have ants in your house. And good luck with the ants!
  4. Ds received an invitation to join this in the mail- I was going to throw it away but I looked it up first, and it seems legitimate in the sense that it's not just a 'pay to be on some list' But is there any point in paying to join? He thinks it's probably just 'resume padding'.
  5. IMO you need to tell him to get help for his anger problem NOW, or he needs to go live with his parent for now. No discussion. Hitting your son? No more hitting should be tolerated. You're calling it 'spanking', but at his age I'd just consider that hitting. For me, that's a line not to be crossed. What'll he do as you son gets older and bigger?
  6. I have a 3.5 lb box that I want to ship to a friend in the UK. Looking at the USPS site, it looks like it'll be about $60? Does this sound correct? Is there a less costly way to ship it?
  7. I quit using subscribe and save because of that issue. Also, some of my items would be 'unavailable'.
  8. Is kindergarten even mandatory where you live? Or did you need to register in K in order to get the scholarship? I hope it gets worked out easily!
  9. NOOOOO. Where we live, many people have cameras, and judging by the comments on Nextdoor, there is the possibility of being shot :(

    USPS what?

    Yes, Informed Delivery. I've had it for a while and I like it.
  11. You should have gotten at least one email from PayPal about the change-I got my first back in Feb I think: As a result of a new regulation issued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in Washington, D.C. coming into effect on April 1, 2019, we are making some changes that will affect consumers who want to hold and use balance with PayPal. Beginning March 29, 2019, if you want to hold and use balance, in addition to verifying your identity with PayPal, you will need a balance account which will be linked to your current PayPal account. Detailed information about balance accounts (known as PayPal Cash and PayPal Cash Plus) can be found in the PayPal Cash and PayPal Cash Plus Terms and Conditions.
  12. If he takes snacks on the airplane make sure some of them are peanut free. We've been told after boarding that because of a passenger w/allergies, to please not eat anything with peanuts.
  13. I wouldn't get that backpack that you linked--I ordered the same one last Dec for a similar use (carryon plane trip for teen) and returned it right away because it was super flimsy/cheap.
  14. Maybe Vertical Run?
  15. My boys participated in Science Olympiad for 2 years on their high school team. I think the prep time involved depends on how the team is run, the event(s) you are doing, and prior knowledge of the events. Mine spent winter break building things (so about 2 weeks--maybe 2 hours/day) and then another week or so rebuilding before the state completion, and I don't think they spent any time prepping for the other events they did. Their school team spent a fair amount of time testing students to place them in events they would be strong in, and for some events making a good 'team'. I know at certain other schools here the teams spend A LOT of time studying and prepping for events.
