If you’ve read some of my most recent blog posts, you’ll see that my husband and I are finding more ways to save money as we wait for the birth of our fourth child. It’s been really great to see how some small changes can have such an impact on our bank account.
In 12 weeks I will become a mom for the fourth time. I’m not panicking, you are. 😱 I might be freaking just a little bit. In an effort to find more ways to save money, we are doing a few things before the new baby arrives – like cloth diapering and getting discounts on gas.
You’d think because I’m pregnant with my fourth child that I would have anything and everything you’d need for a baby. Well, I did. Except I donated a ton two weeks before I found out I was pregnant and am left with just a few items. This time around I’ve been looking for products that will make my life a bit easier.
After watching Creative Galaxy’s Valentine’s Day episode, “Heart Day,” my kids and I were inspired to make a DIY Mailbox for their Valentine’s Cards. All that’s needed for this project is either an empty tissue or shipping box, stickers and glitter.
I love me a good handprint or fingerprint craft and this one does not disappoint. You can turn it into a card, put it on canvas, frame it, whatever you decide. To help get you started I created a free printable to make it easier for the little ones.
When you think of January, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? I think new and fresh. It’s a new year and new you if you want. Of course, you can have that thought any day of the year, but it’s hard to ignore when a brand new year starts. When POPSUGAR’s January Must Have Box landed on my front my porch, I knew right away this box would be different from the others.
No matter how hard we may try to prevent it, our kids will still get sick. We are on week number four of some cold that’s going around in our house. ? It seems to have gotten each one of my kids, including me. While expected during the winter months, us moms still need to be prepared.
Rainy days during the winter are tough. If we are stuck inside, we either do a craft or bake something. I’d rather eat, but my kids like to be messy, so find a craft it is! I love both of these ideas because you probably have everything you need in your house. No need to make a trip to the craft store! ??
