Take a break from the summer heat and cure the "I'm-so-bored" blues at the same time.  Shoeplace and Showtime Cinemas is offering special showings of kid's movies for only $1 per person.  As an added bonus, you can say "yes" to the normally uber-expensive movie snacks with their $2.50 Kiddie Coke & Popcorn special.

This week's movie is "How to Train Your Dragon".   Next week "Megamind" will be showing (which really is an amusing flick).  Shows run at the East location on Tuesday mornings, in Newburgh, Connersville, Henderson, and Princeton on Wednesdays, and at the North location on Thursdays.  All films start at 9:30 a.m.
Groupon has two dozen cookies from e.e.cookies.com for $27 shipped (a $53.90 value).  They are made with all natural and quality ingredients with flavors like Triple Chocolate with Pecans, or Oatmeal with Blueberries, Cranberries and Walnuts.  Not a local business, but a great idea if you need to send a gift to someone. (Feel free to put me on that list!)

Don't forget to pick up a ticket to see "The Lincoln Lawyer" with Matthew McConaughey for just $6 bucks.  These national deals don't come around too often.

Seize the Deal has you  $25 worth of fresh flowers and outstanding presents at Decker's Flowers & Gifts in Boonville for just $12.50.  Nothing says "Happy Spring" like daffodils.

The Courier Press has added new deals to their catalog of savings.  Dance Crafters has a $95 gift voucher available for $49.50.  My husband and I took lessons from Darrell, the owner, prior to our wedding 5 years ago.  He was an incredibly patient and talented teacher.  It was a blast, and we wowed everyone at the reception.  If you have any interest in any type of dance style, I highly recommend Dance Crafters.  This deal is only available until midnight Sunday.  I think I'll pick one up for myself!

Strouse's Clothes-Out Consignment is offering a $20 certificate for $10.  You have until next year to pick this one up, but only 50 will be sold.

Nitro Fitness has a one-month membership valued at $55 for $27.50.  This offer expires on April 10, 2011, or when 50 have been sold. 
Groupon.com has a new deal today of a Romance Package at the Holiday Inn in Bowling Green.  This package is really nice, and is good for a year. It's never too early to think about an upcoming anniversary, or even next Valentine's Day.  It includes a King-sized bed, half-dozen chocolate covered strawberries, a bottle of champagne, breakfast for two the next morning, and late checkout.  $188 value for only $86. 

With the weather finally warming up, it's not a bad idea to pick up Groupon.com's other deal, which is a set of 2 adult and 2 child passes to the Mesker Park Zoo and Botanical Gardens.  If you haven't been in the last year, you really need to check it out.  They have made some amazing changes!  A $32 value for only $16.  As of now, 406 have been sold, and they only have a limited quantity available. 

These Deals expire tommorrow at midnight, so don't miss out!
