PostHeaderIcon Easter Baskets On A Budget

Image3Every year I would go to a big box store and over pay for the kids Easter baskets. If you are wondering why I didn’t just reuse the ones from the previous year, just start laughing now. The main reason is the kids would want to use them in their rooms for their “stuff”. They weren’t high quality so they always ended up broken. Let’s just go with it’s the kids fault.

Once you get their baskets, you go overboard on filling it with things that they will be excited about for all of 5 minutes. Royal and Spencer were way more excited about colored pencils and chalk, years ago. Alex truly just loves everything so his baskets are super easy. Hunter and Royal, not so much anymore. Teenagers seen to get more expensive as they get older.

This year, get baskets that will last a very long time! When they outgrown Easter, they have a fantastic bin they can use for whatever they want…. or you can steal it to organize your home. BONUS FOR MOM!

Right now you can get 2 amazing baskets for just $15 with every $35 spent. That’s 2 for $15, not $15 each. Where can you get a gorgeous basket for $7.50? Need 2? Need 4? I got you!  Read the rest of this entry »

TAKING A ROAD TRIP, OH MY! In 2013, my family of 3 became a family of 6, interesting human beings, (7 if you count the dog). This required a little more brain power on my part. My Mom and brothers live 500 miles away so taking a road trip several times a year is pretty common for this crazy bunch. We have also taken an amazing road trip to Washington D.C., in the summer of 2016, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan last summer.

Most people have a vehicle that holds 5 people because the average family size is only 4. Naturally, Patrick had one of those vehicles. Luckily for us, I have a Jeep Commander that seats 7 people. So, woohoo, I have the Mom vehicle, which is okay because I love my Jeep. Patrick has a Jeep Cherokee which is completely out for traveling unless it is just the 2 of us (like that ever happens) or for whatever reason, all of the children aren’t traveling with us.
