Best Easter Dresses for Girls Under $20

One thing that I love about holidays is getting my kids dressed for special events. In general I don’t usually go out of my way to buy brand-new or name brand clothing for my kids because they are very rough and tumble on clothes and being a frugal minded person I don’t usually see the point in buying things new and not used. When it comes to holidays though, I make an exception because for me pictures are worth 1000 words and special articles of clothing often mark those occasions perfectly!

One of my favorite frugal yet completely no-brainier easy ways to buy holiday clothes is on Amazon.com with my Amazon Prime account. Because most of the time holiday clothes only need to be worn for a picture, party, or one day of fun, they do not need to be the highest quality. Thank goodness you can order in a hurry and have a pretty accurate time frame of delivery as well as the ability to return for free if you are unhappy with the product or the fit isn’t right. All of that is included free with your Amazon Prime membership.Continue reading

Kids Easter Basket Ideas

Kids Easter Basket Ideas

I know Easter is coming, and I wanted to help you think of kid’s Easter basket ideas. Is there a special little girl in your life? I have one. I simply adore my daughter. She is pure sunshine except when she doesn’t get her way. Then we call her thunder. She is in fact in love with the Disney Princesses. We have had several mom and daughter moments talking about and watching the Disney Princesses. We have done our makeup and popped popcorn and then watched the movies I loved as a kid. The Little Mermaid has been my favorite growing up; I can still sing every song.

Easter Dinner Menu – 10 Weight Watchers Points Plus

Easter Dinner Menu

Easter is a tough holiday to stay on track with my healthy lifestyle goals. In fact it ranks right up there with Halloween and Christmas. Lots of candy, lots of baked goods, and a big family meal all have my best intentions heading for trouble. I am going to try to do my best and make one healthy choice at a time because every choice counts and you can’t let one slip up or over indulgence make you fall off the wagon completely. I am planning a low calorie Easter Dinner Menu that is still traditional with healthier versions of my family’s favorite dishes.
