Inexpensive Star Wars Birthday

This summer both of my girls had a birthday, and we celebrated by having a Mega Star Wars Birthday Blowout. Here are some of the ideas we used (mostly from Pinterest) in case you’re interested in having an inexpensive Star Wars birthday too!

First, you need to have a brother-in-law who will give your kids light sabers and dress up like a Storm Trooper. Sorry, can’t help you there 🙂


I found some $0.50 earmuffs at Michael’s, cut up an old brown sweater, got out my glue gun, and bought a bunch of brown yarn. It was time-consuming, but the Leia Buns Headbands were a big hit!


Cleverly-titled food tastes better. Everyone knows it’s true.

A Darth Vader pinata isn’t incredibly cheap, but I think it was worth it for the amount of fun the kids had!


Unrelated to the topic: instead of birthday presents each year my girls ask their guests to bring food for the food bank. It’s an idea I wish would catch on in popularity. My girls get PLENTY of presents from family, and this is a great way to teach them to give back! They come with me to deliver the items, and it really leads to some good discussions.

Birthday Freebies!

My birthday is this weekend, and I’ve been enjoying all the freebies and offers I’ve received via mail and email. I though this would be a good time to post my updated birthday freebies list!

Here are some of the great free things my family and I received for our birthdays this summer. If any of these goodies interest you, be sure to go to the company’s website and sign up for their loyalty program or email list.


We usually celebrate birthdays by enjoying a free dessert at Aubrey’s, no coupon required.

Here are some of the other coupons we received by email to use anytime in celebration of our birthdays. Remember, unless noted, you do have to sign up ahead of time. You can’t always just show your driver’s license.

Free Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘n Fruity meal at IHOP

Free ice cream from Baskin Robbins

Free appetizer from Texas Roadhouse

Free Zaxby’s Nibbler sandwich for the grownups and a free kid’s meal for your children

Free item from Marble Slab Creamery.

$5/5 purchase at McAlister’s Deli


Free Redbox movie rental

Free perfume from the Aveda Pure Privilege program.

$30 off a $30 purchase at the Ann Taylor Loft outlet, courtesy of the Tanger Rewards program, which I’ve belonged to for four years now. You’ll receive a $10 gift certificate during your first year in the Tanger Rewards program.

50 free Swagbucks (search engine rewards program).

A 15 percent off coupon from American Eagle

100 Disney Movie Rewards points

Sign your kids up for Geoffrey’s Birthday Club and Toys R Us will send you a special coupon on their birthdays.

20 percent off coupon from Hallmark Crown Rewards.

So, happy birthday to you, whenever it may be! Go ahead and sign up for the rewards I’ve mentioned, and you’re sure to have a fun, frugal, coupon-filled birthday.

$50 to spend at Gaylord Opryland Hotel when you stay for your birthday

Here’s another birthday bonus for you.

When you spend two nights at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville during your birth month, you’ll get a free $50 credit to spend on dining, spa, etc. You have to make your reservations through their birthday site, and you have to show proof of your birthday at check-in. This offer goes through December 2011, but they could always renew it next year, so check back if you’ve already celebrated your birthday this year.

Yes, the Opryland Hotel is expensive. But if you were planning a getaway there already you might as well pick up a free $50 credit, right?

A few more fun birthday freebies: smoothies, ice cream, and CVS ECBs

Here are more birthday freebies that I received by email from lovely people who read my article in the Blount Today last month:

Susan G. received $3 ECBs for her birthday from CVS for anything in the store. (My mother-in-law got one of these too! She also gets the elusive CVS $4/20 coupons. I actually called CVS to see why I wasn’t getting these fun coupons via email and they said it’s based on buying habits. Oh well!) She also received a buy one-get-one 20 oz smoothie coupon at Smoothie King via email. Bonus: you’ll get the same coupon when you first sign up for their email newsletter.

Patricia H. let me know that Marble Slab has a birthday club. You can also sign your kids up for birthday freebies when you register!

Thanks for letting me know about these!
