Thanks to all of you for jumping in with deals last week when I took a break!  This ad (starting Wednesday) is the second/final week of the Buy 10, Save $5 sale that has great deals on butter, Barilla pasta, and more – just wanted to give you a heads up on that since they last two weeks but since I didn’t do the ad as usual last week.

Free Kids’ Meals at Burger King on Saturday (Details Needed!)

I have incomplete information on this one, but have tried calling and haven’t been able to get anyone to answer, so I’m hoping maybe some of you will know the details.  I saw, via their marquee, that the Burger King at Woodmen and Rangewood is offering free kids’ meals on April 4th.  I don’t have any other details, unfortunately, so this could be limited to a certain time of the day or a certain number per family.  It may or may not be valid at other locations.

If you happen to know any of the details, please comment or email me!

Ask A Realtor: Is It Worth It To Finish My Basement?

We’re thinking about selling our house and are considering finishing our basement. We received a quote for $27,000 to do the job, and I’m wondering if it will add enough value to our house to justify doing it.
