All I can say is thank goodness school is almost over. Between running to dance classes, baseball practices, and PTO meetings, I’m pretty much exhausted. But I don’t want the year to end without properly thanking the saint-like teachers who have nurtured my kids and helped mold them into smart and kind people.
Here are some super simple ideas for teacher gifts that you can make for just a few dollars each, as well as tons of printable gift tags to make them look perfect. No need to sift through my previous posts and pay separately for each tag, you can get them all here in one bundle for just 99 cents! (more…)
Even though we don’t get much of a winter down here in South Florida, I still relish the start of Spring. It’s such a breath of fresh air. It’s a time to renew and refresh your goals and your plans and clean out some clutter.
It’s also a great time to spruce up your home with some bright and light colors. And you can do it easily without spending a lot of money. Don’t buy new furniture or rugs.. just changing out a few accents will make a huge difference. (more…)
Part of being frugal is being smart.
And one of the smartest things you can do with your spending is to get some of your money back.
In fact, if you’re not taking advantage of rebates, you’re basically throwing money away.

Do you live on the coast? Do you wish you did? Then show off your coastal style in your Christmas gifts.

So I married my love for the coast and my love for Christmas and gorgeous gift wrapping. And you can too!
Weathering our first hurricane in Florida was an emotional roller coaster to say the least. And I learned a lot. I learned about hurricane shutters, how to grab cases of water (fast). I learned that evacuating with tens of thousands of other people takes a lot of patience.. and lots of snacks.
And I learned that the compassion and caring of others is the bright spot in any storm.
Some good friends of ours became even better friends, by opening their homes and hearts to us. They gave us a place to lay our head, food in our bellies and smiles on our faces.
So now safely back home, I wanted to send them something to express how much their charity meant to us. (more…)

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…)
