Kroger Deal Alert- Operation Christmas Child stockup time

My Kroger grocery store currently has the pink erasers marked to 12 cents each OR a two pack of the pink erasers and about 6 of the pencil toppers packaged together for a quarter.  
I grabbed enough for our Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes for 2013!  You might go check it out if you are also a shoebox-er.

Other things I have picked up already for this year's boxes include:
  • .50 cent dictionaries from Staples
  • screwdrivers from Staples (of all places!)
  • .75 cent 4-pack of mini skateboard fingerboards (Target Valentine Clearance)

Cutesy House Rules vs. REAL rules

Things like this are cluttering up my pinterest feed:
in this house sign, in this house we do loud really well, in this house we do second chances, we do family sign

Aww now isn't that sweet?  I should make one for our house!  Oh wait.  I live in the real world with a bunch of boys and a sweet but mischievous dog.

Here's what I'd have to cut out of vinyl letters with a Cricut and plaster onto some wood for our house:

In this house...

We do not stand right by someone's face and fart.
We do not flap our pants right by someone's face after farting.
We will be in trouble if Mom finds we pooped and didn't flush.
We do not stand and poop on the carpet (DOG!)
We do not write our phone number on our arm with sharpie.
We do not try to ride the dog, no matter how much she enjoys our attempts.
We do not blow the airhorn to wake someone up.

Tell me I'm not the only one with REAL rules in the house..things you never thought you'd have to turn into a rule.  What are some of your zany ones?
