There’s nothing better than bringing blankets and chairs to the neighborhood park, popping some popcorn, toting along a flashlight and some glow necklaces and having fun under the stars!

This guide will list EVERY free outdoor movie in the Twin Cities! Best of all, instead of just a list you have to scroll through, we created an ENTIRE CATEGORY in our Kids & Family Calendar so that they’ll pop up on your phone as they’re scheduled and show up in our regular list of Kid and Family events in the Twin Cities!

No lists to keep track of! No posts to bookmark! Just hop on our calendar and everything is listed by the day it’s showing including maps to the movies!

Some tips for free outdoor movies in the Twin Cities:

1. Bring bug spray! This is the Twin Cities after all!

2. Some locations sell concessions, but consider popping your own popcorn and packing your own drinks to save money and save trips to the concession stand.

3. Dress warm. You know the Twin Cities! It can be 80 and humid at 6pm and downright chilly by the time the sun sets! Bring a layer for the top and maybe a thin blanket for bare legs.

4. Get there early! Movies that start at dusk typically start seating at least an hour in advance. Save a great spot with a large blanket and explore the parks to pass the time. Bring some distractions if you have little ones….card games, a small board game or a ball.

5. As long as you’re there early, scope out the bathroom situation BEFORE the movie starts and before it gets dark! Bring a flashlight to make trips to the bathroom easier.

Enjoy! We only get a few months of really fantastic weather so make the most of them with a movie under the stars!

All About Amazon Prime Day – July 15th!

Amazon Prime Day July 15th

**As with all posts on Twin Cities Moms, there may be affiliate links for which we receive a small commission.
This does not increase the cost to you in any way and helps support our work at Twin Cities Moms. Thanks!**

You may have seen in the media that Amazon is having a sale that they say will rival the traditional Black Friday sales. It’s all to celebrate their 20th anniversary and it’s going to be pretty epic! So what does this mean for you if you ARE an Amazon Prime member of if you are NOT?

First, this sale will only be available to current Amazon Prime members, which means that if you have a membership in good standing you are automatically IN to take advantage of any of the deals Amazon decides to offer that day (more on those, below).

If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you still have time to become a member and take advantage of what could be pretty epic deals on Amazon on July 15th! The cost for an Amazon Prime membership is only $99/year and you get A LOT for that membership! Not only do you get free 2-day shipping on thousands of items, but you also get access to Amazon Music (free streaming music) and Amazon Prime Video which is similar to Netflix includes thousands of free movies and TV shows including Amazon original series’ that you can’t get anywhere else. You also get free, unlimited photo backup in the cloud with Prime Photos!

Secondly, the deals are going to be AH-MAZING! Like a 40-inch LED TV for $115! Or an Amazon Fire HD7 tablet for $60 off the normal price? Tons more deals are being leaked! We’ll update a few here so check back!

You’ll also have the chance to win $1000 to $25000 in Amazon gift cards!

So when is this sale?

The sale begins at 12:01am PT on July 15th, 2015 and will end at 11:59pm on the same day. It’s only one day, so be sure to grab what you want while it’s available!

Our tips for becoming an Amazon Prime member:

Join here and you’ll be enrolled in a free 30-day trial. If you decide you don’t want the membership before the 30-days expires, you won’t be charged anything. Just cancel before 30 days are up and you can enjoy all of the benefits of Prime in the meantime.

Consider making your Amazon Prime membership an Amazon Mom membership instead. The cost is the same, but you’ll also get 20% off selected diapers (all major brands are represented in the list of diapers available for the discount)!

Amazon Mom members can also get 15% off their monthly Subscribe and Save shipments if they purchase 5 or more things on a monthly, subscription basis. This discount alone is worth it! Not only do you get great Amazon prices on things you would buy anyway (think consumables…toilet paper, paper towels, food products, personal care products, etc) but you also get 15% off the entire order and free shipping too! Compare the prices of some of the products you already buy and you might find that the savings of money AND time are well worth switching your purchases to Amazon!

Is Prime worth it?

As an Amazon Prime member since the program began, my personal opinion is that it’s worth every penny! I check everything on Amazon before I make a purchase in a store. Knowing that I can get almost anything shipped to me for free and in only two days makes it so worth the effort of plugging in a search or two into Amazon to see if they can beat a local store’s price. This really comes in handy in the winter! Who wants to shop from store to store in the Twin Cities cold when an option is available that can bring the exact item I want, usually for less money, right to my door?

My family also loves the movie and TV show selections on Amazon Prime Video. Chances are that if Netflix doesn’t have something, Amazon Prime Video will and the selections are just different enough that we love having both services available to us. The free streaming music from Amazon Music and the free photo backup from Amazon Photos are awesome too. Who couldn’t use some more free photo storage as a second or third backup for safety?

If you’re curious about the one-day sale on July 15th and you want to give Amazon Prime a whirl, there’s really no better time. Check out the free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime and see how it works for you and your family!

The Ultimate DIY Bundle Free E-Course!

Ultimate DIY Bundle EcourseWe’re so excited to be participating in this year’s flash sale of the Ultimate DIY Bundle! So many cool things in the bundle this year for anyone who is a DIY’er or “aspiring DIY’er”! I know that this year I decided one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to learn how to do something new that was practical and crafty and I think the DIY Bundle is going to be just the thing I personally need to jumpstart that goal and get started!

What is the Ultimate DIY Bundle?

Just 69 e-books and e-courses full of DIY awesomeness, that’s what! Whether you’re into (or want to get into) crafts, homemade personal care products, cleaning and organizing, canning, cake decorating, gardening, home decor, interior design, painting, upcycling finds from thrift stores, photography, journaling, scrapbooking, sewing, Pinterest, selling on Etsy, making crafting a business, or writing….whew!….there’s something here for you! Best of all? Instead of paying for each resource individually and paying well over $800, you get them all for only $34.95! Plus bonuses too!

Free E-Course

There’s a special gift that the bundle team put together that is JUST the thing to get your creative juices flowing! I just subscribed to it myself and now I’m even more excited to dig into the bundle once it’s ready. The gift is called, “Four Steps to Rediscover Your Inner Creative Genius” and if you’re like me, you may wonder if there was ever a creative genius there to begin with! =)

What I love about it is that it’s a four-day mini e-course via email that teaches, in very small, actionable steps, how to rediscover those latent creative juices that may have faded away after getting busy with kids, taking care of a house or working all day.

What I also love about signing up for this free course is that if you sign up and share it with a friend, YOU will get a $5 discount on the complete Ultimate DIY Bundle when the flash sale opens! Refer even more and you can even earn a free subscription to “Better Homes and Gardens” (love that magazine!) and refer even more and you’ll get the complete Ultimate DIY Bundle for FREE!

I love FREE and I know you do too, so this was something that had to be passed on to our Twin Cities Moms readers!

How to get the course and get started!

To sign up for the free e-course just visit: http://bundlecourse.twincitiesmoms.com and use your BEST email address so that you can receive the course and your referral link to let your friends in on this great deal!

What are you most looking forward to learning from the e-course or the bundle? Share it over on our Facebook page!
