All Things Thrifty: Mom’s Ultimate Survival Kit

16 Mar

My purse is a mess! Stage 4 pack rat purser! I have random things that I just KNOW I’m going to need while out and about some day so I don’t take them out of my purse. It’s an adventure just digging through my purse to find a pen, or Kleenex, etc. I’ve seen those […]

St. Patrick's Kitchen Towels

Walking around Target the other day I found a pack of 3 kitchen towels on sale for $2.08.

Lost Socks Laundry Room Aid

12 Jan

Pin ItI’ve seen this idea a hundred times before but usually it involved a wood plank you hang on your laundry room wall. I simply, do not have a laundry room. More like a laundry closet. No, smaller than a closet. Laundry… pantry? You get my point. I decided to take the idea and adapt […]

Printable Disney Shrinkee Dinks

8 Jan

I totally remember doing shrinkee dinks when I was little. My mom is SUPER creative and artsy fartsy. She’d draw our characters herself! Anything we wanted! She often used shrink paper for church hand outs too (inspiration idea!)…. I however, am no artist. I have to find my shrinkee dink characters via clip art! Today […]
