Thrift store haul!! Feb 18, 2014

Posted by on Feb 19, 2014 in Childhood, My Recent Finds | 0 comments

I’ve been looking to start a lego collection for the kids. So I thought to hit the thrift stores in my area hoping to find cheap sets. Those efforts have failed for today, but I found some stuff that was worth it. Here are all the items I bought today, from 5 stores total. Of course I just had to look through the kids book sections…. And came out with these: Prices varied between $0.25-$1.00 per book, depending on store. And then I spotted these amazing blocks in the toy section!!! If you follow me on my Facebook page, you know that I’ve been planning to make these Arabic Alphabet Blocks from this blog. So I’ve been trying to find foam or wooden blocks that aren’t too expensive. Then I find this huge bag of wooden cubes for $5!!!!...

Half-Price Books Children’s Book Haul

Posted by on Feb 11, 2014 in Childhood, My Recent Finds | 0 comments

Today I went to God’s heaven on earth. Aka the bookstore. After school, picked up the kids and gave them each $10. I wanted to see how they would spend them, and I thought books would be the best thing to splurge on. We arrived to Halfpriced books store (find a location near you here) and started out in the kids section. They had fun subtracting prices and trying to figure out the biggest bang for their buck. They did pretty good, each ended up with 3-4 books….. until we discovered the *enter harmonic melody here* “CLEARANCE SECTION”!!! They got so excited to see all the cool books under $3! I have to admit my heart was racing as well. Now we had unlimited options to choose from and couldn’t decide what NOT to get! There were tons of...

My “Sanity Savers” Baby Products List

Posted by on Jan 23, 2014 in Childhood, My Recent Finds | 0 comments

As you could probably tell from the title, these are the baby products I believe will help saving my sanity while dealing with a new baby! My two older kids are school aged and need help with homework and projects, the house needs to be constantly kept up (who has time for that?),while taking care of a newborn!, having food ready and trying to get some SLEEEEP! So at this point, anything that I think will make my life a tad bit easier is worth it in my book. After all, if momma ain’t happy, Nobody is happy! These are the products that I have researched, read reviews, and thought about quite a long time and have finally made my list. These are not essentials that you must have to survive, but the nice additions that makes life easier,...

My daughter is in first grade, learning about different businesses that sell services and/or goods. Her assignment? To design a business that either sells goods or services.
