The holidays will be here before you know it! I don’t know about you, but my daughter is already adding requests to her Christmas list and it was hard to keep up with so I made a Christmas Gift List For Kids Printable so I would be able to keep up with what she wanted when it was time to go shopping. (Black Friday anyone?) We keep her list on our fridge so that way when she thinks of something she wants she can add it to her list, but she has to be picky because there are only 10 open slots for wishes. So I wanted to share with you the list I made, feel free to print it off and use it for your kids too!

If you want to save money the number #1 thing to do is write a list of the items you need. Then you find coupons to go with them. If you stick with your Real Advice Gal Printable Grocery List then you will also save money. I use this list. I laminated it and I use a dry erase marker to keep track of what we need each week. It is a great tool and helps my husband and myself stay on budget. It is yours to print. Please leave my logo on the bottom since it took a lot of time to create.

Today was the last full week of school for my kids. That means only 3 more days until summer starts. YAY right? The kids are so excited they could burst. But as a mom I know that that excitement will quickly wear away by week two, day 3, 9am. It happens the same time each year without fail. And when it does, the kids will let you know. They will come up to you dragging their feet, and sour faces and exclaim with a sigh, “MOM, I’m SO bored!” and “There’s nothing to do!”. Here we have 2 choices. We can tell them to go watch some TV (and no judgement here, sometimes we all go that route) or we can direct them to an activity. So that’s where the idea for the “I’m Bored” Jar comes in!
Mother’s Day is almost here! Have you picked out the perfect gift for the mom in your life? I’m still working on finding the perfect gift for my own Mom ha! One of the things I love doing on holidays is themed crafts and activities with my daughter. So this year she told me she wanted to make a list all about me which she could write for Mother’s Day. So she and I sat down and designed a Free Mother’s Day Printable for her to fill out for me. I thought I would share our creation with you so you could share it with your kids and Mom as well! I’m going to frame mine when my little girl is done filling it out. It will make a great memory! Continue reading
This year, one of my goal is to challenge myself to save money and be frugal. I know that if I do this in the long run it will benefit me and my family. One of the Savings Challenge that I want to do is the 52 Week Savings Plan. I saw this first from one of my friend and I immediately got interested. If you will look at the chart below, you can see that it’s something realistic. Unlike other money savings plan with this Savings Challenge you only have to save little amount each week and after 52 weeks you’ll have $1378!
The concept of 52 Week Savings Plan is very simple, you just have to save and deposit the amount that corresponds to the number of the week into your account. What I love about this plan is it’s not intimidating and even kids especially teens can do this. By saving small amounts, at the end of the challenge, you’ll have extra money.
