Free Summer Activities For Kids

It’s almost summer! Can you believe an entire school year has almost gone by already?

I can’t believe my kids will soon be second and third graders! And I don’t want them to be vegetables all summer, letting their growing little brains turn to mush. So I try to pack the summer with fun activities. Some for fun and some they can learn from.

In this post, you’ll find lots of free options! (more…)

There’s More To Florida Than Disney

One of the many, many perks of living in Florida is that you’re close to all sorts of entertainment options. And no other place in Florida packs it all in like the Orlando area. But it’s not all about Disney. There are lots of theme park options that are a little more affordable. (more…)

10 Things To Do With After-Easter Clearance Items

Easter basket home decor on clearance after the holiday can be used to hold cutlery and napkin rings - 10 Things To Do With After-Easter Clearance Items

You probably know I LOVE after-holiday shopping. You can see it in my previous posts after Halloween and Christmas. It’s pretty much the only time I buy holiday items, when they’re 50% or more off in the days following the holiday.

While grocery shopping at Walmart recently I wasn’t even thinking of after-Easter shopping until I saw the tons of Easter items they still had. So I grabbed a few things and took pics of a few others to give you some ideas on how to take advantage of these great deals. (more…)

5 Frugal Kitchen Gadgets For Cooking Healthy

I went on a bit of a shopping spree at the grocery store recently. I was standing there looking at all the kitchen utensils and gadgets and thinking, “Wow, those are cool.” So I grabbed a few (several) of them.

But I’m not one to buy gadgets that sit in the drawer and don’t get used and therefore waste money. So what I got was super affordable and they make a big impact on cooking healthier meals for my family. (more…)

Frugal Fitness Gear

If you follow me you know I’m a runner and I’m a big fan of free and frugal fitness tools. You can check out my other post on: Frugal Fitness- How To Get Fit For A Few Dollars Or Free for some suggestions on apps, videos and resources.

And while working to get fit, you need the proper workout gear so you can be comfortable and motivated. I don’t know about you, but when I have a new workout outfit it helps to motivate me to get my butt out the door and run. Because I look good. Who wants to keep that a secret. 😉

But workout clothes have to be affordable. I’m sure Lululemon workout gear is probably the best ever. I mean, for those prices, it must automatically burn calories right? If I need a second mortgage to afford it, automatic calorie burning or not, I’m going to have to pass unless I can find it super cheap at a thrift or consignment store.

So here’s a breakdown of some frugal workout gear to get you started. (more…)

Thrift Smarter – Get Great Clothes & Make Money For Schools

Pile of clothes purchased from Schoola.com - Thrift Smarter - Get Great Clothes And Make Money For Schools

As hard as I try, I can’t get my kids to stop growing. I tried to get them both to stay around 3 years old (what a great age) but I couldn’t. They’re growing at such a rapid pace, my son grew from a child size 12 shoe to a big kid size 3 shoe overnight. Literally overnight. Keeping them in clothes that fit is a near constant struggle. So I often turn to thrift and consignment for good quality clothes that I can afford. And if I find a gem or two for me along the way.. yay!

And my new favorite way to shop gently loved clothes at a great price is a website called Schoola. Because I get great clothes AND make money for local schools!

It’s the ultimate win-win.
