  • I used to run home, change and get right into the family business of dinner and cleaning. Now I go to my bedroom change and workout. I feel much more relaxed when I emerge from my bedroom

  • Just to clarify on the previous post on the prepare then share emergency supplies. By getting a membership to receive it all at wholesale. You are not obligated to sale a thing. There is just incentives if you share this information at 50.00 a person. This is just a way to help individuals, families, and communities get prepared for the unexpected at a wholesale cost. I just wanted to explain in the post below some of the incentives they have if you share the information.... It's an amazing concept for a great cause.

  • The summer is supposed to be a time for kids to enjoy not having to be in school and to just enjoy being kids. However, with the heat that some of us are having, or the rain, or whatever the case may be, they don't always get to go outside and play. Here's something fun for them to do inside ...

    We all know that it seems like the washing machine often eats our socks. My husband and I have plenty of socks that have lost their partners. Take some of your socks that you can't find the match for, and take some of your children's socks that you can't find a match for, and let them turn them into sock puppets! Purchase some washable markers and let your kids draw faces on the socks, give them clothing, etc. and put on a puppet show! After they're tired of the same ol' puppets, just wash the socks! Since the kids used washable markers, the marker will be washed out and they can draw some new puppet characters and make up new stories. This is a great way to keep the imagination at work.

  • OMG...I am so glad to have found the Grocery Game. As a busy full time working mom I don't have time to go around looking for good deals. With the Grocery Game, Terri's lists have been so time saving that I went to Winn Dixie and saved almost $60! I would recommend trying this, as a mom and a coupon clipper if you are one. Happy Shopping!

  • I figured this out by accident. My 11-month-old hates being strapped into the car seat and it's even worse with her heavy winter coat on. And it's frustrating to fight her on this issue, when I pick her up from daycare! So I buckled her in without the coat on, then put her arms through the sleeves of her coat, OUTSIDE the straps! (The coat on backwards, basically.) Kept her warm from the lobby to our car, and she didn't fuss as much! (This is such a tiny tip; I don't know if it'll save anyone's LIFE, heh, but it's been helpful to me the last 2 days!)
