Spring Sneakers for the Busy Baby: A Review of Zero to Two

Spring Sneakers for the Busy Baby: A Review of Zero to Two

It’s amazing how different two brothers can be. My boys are still very young, but I can already see completely different personalities emerging. While my toddler TJ is a whirlwind of passion, my baby Eli is far more subdued. Seriously, he’s the chillest baby on the planet (thank the LORD for that).

However, the boys do have one very important character trait in common: they both MOVE at record speed. All. The. Time.

65 Easter Basket Gift Ideas (That Aren’t Candy!)

65 Easter Basket Gift Ideas (That Aren’t Candy!)

I always loved the tradition of getting a special Easter basket as a kid. We got our fair share of candy and Peeps, but my mom always included some fun non-food items as well! Don’t get me wrong– I’m all about the candy and the sweet stuff! But if you’re looking for some simple and fun ideas to fill an Easter basket that aren’t just candy, check out this list!

10 Non-Icky Ways to Make Money as a Stay-At-Home Parent

10 Non-Icky Ways to Make Money as a Stay-At-Home Parent

Remember when staying at home with the kids used to be the norm for moms? Yeah, me neither. I’m too young. But that was the case in the not-too-distant past! Dad would make money and Mom would raise the children and run the house, and the family lived comfortably on one income.

Nowadays, I feel like that’s less and less the case. Don’t get me wrong– I’m a huge supporter of moms working if that’s what they want and that’s what works for their families! But whether you blame the inflated cost of living, modern consumerism, or good ol’ Big Brother, it’s becoming more difficult to provide for a family on one income alone for those of us who can’t (or don’t want to) leave the home.

However, with the crazy possibilities of the Wild Wild Web in every house, stay-at-home parents have more freedom than ever to make some supplemental income while at home with their kids! Whether it’s keeping up with the Joneses, the Kardashians, or just trying to make ends meet, you’ve got plenty of options to make some supplemental income from home.

80+ Dollar Tree Stocking Stuffers

80+ Dollar Tree Stocking Stuffers

I love the tradition of stockings, but I don’t love spending a lot of time stressing over them, or a lot of money filling them. I’ve seen several stocking stuffer gift guides floating around the internet with items that range from $5 to $20– for one thing! I don’t know about you, but that’s not in my Christmas budget!

However, I never like to substitute quality for quantity: I don’t like just buying junk that I know will get thrown away or donated. You see my predicament. However, last year I decided to try filling our stockings with all items from Dollar Tree, and do you know what I found? Everything. Everything I could possibly need to fill all of the stockings I had to fill. Every. Single. Thing.

How to Throw a Travel-Themed Baby Shower (on a Budget!)

How to Throw a Travel-Themed Baby Shower (on a Budget!)

This past weekend I had the incredible honor of hosting a baby shower for my big sister and her first precious baby! Some people thought I was crazy for hosting while also being so pregnant myself, and maybe I was (just a little). But I had such a blast– and come on, it’s my sister! For her, I’d do it all again in a heartbeat. And hey– now YOU get to benefit from all of the DIY inspiration and photos!

The One-Minute No-Sew Reusable Swiffer Cleaning Pad

The One-Minute No-Sew Reusable Swiffer Cleaning Pad

I’m not going to lie to you– I usually don’t get excited about cleaning. Having a clean home is another story, but getting there… (It’s like shaving my legs: love the result, hate the process. But I digress.) However, ever since I finally got a Swiffer WetJet to clean my floors and got to replace a dirty mop (and the hands-and-knees scrubbing method), I actually somewhat like Mopping Day!

However, as much as I love using my Swiffer, I don’t love having to buy disposable cleaning pad attachments to be able to use it. 1) I hate spending money on things I don’t have to, and 2) waste waste waste. Ick. I’m trying to be MORE green in my house and life, not create more unnecessary WASTE.

So of course, as soon as I picked up my beautiful new Swiffer (well, new to me. Found it at a garage sale for $3.00, with a full container of the liquid cleaner. Boom.), I started looking up ideas on Pinterest for making my own reusable Swiffer cleaning pads. A simple search will show you there are dozens of ideas and tutorials for making your own pads. While I love DIY sewing projects, sometimes I’m more of the attitude of “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That!” I like DIY projects that are quick, easy, and, most importantly, aren’t going to cost me a lot. Here’s the method I used for making four reusable Swiffer pads in under a minute, for a grand total of $1.00–and there’s not even measuring involved!
