$10/$30 at Party City

We were at Party City today to pick up one of these beauties, and while there I noticed you can sign up in store for a $10/$30 coupon to be emailed to you. You can also sign up on Party City's Web site.
I'm kinda kicking myself because I KNEW about the online offer but it didn't occur to me that I might be able to use it in store. And I spent just over $30 on the pinata, some butterfly blow-outs, butterfly-shaped confetti, and, yes, butterfly-shaped bubble blowing wands.
I am a sucker for themed birthday parties, and although I've spent a lot, I keep reminding myself that it would have all cost more if we'd done what most parents we know do and held it a place like MyGym.
Alas, I'd have spent less if I didn't ALWAYS overestimate the amount of candy it takes to fill a pinata. There's nothing I hate having extra of more than Tootsie Rolls and Smarties. Oh well, Letter Carrier's Food Drive, here we come.
Well, it's SORT OF food.
