Mom’s Best Meatloaf Recipe

Mom's best meatloaf Recipe

Kasey here, although we follow a clean eating lifestyle we do have a cheat meal or two at least once or twice a week. My kids absolutely LOVE meatloaf, it’s one of their favorite meals. This is my mom’s best meatloaf recipe that I thought I’d share with you. My favorite part is the yummy ketchup/brown sugar/vinegar topping. I often make two at a time and put one in the freezer for later.  I serve with mashed potatoes and broccoli for a delicious home cooked supper.

3 Tips and Tricks for Dressing Babies & Toddlers on a Budget

garanimals3

In just a couple of weeks we are adding a new addition to our family. As excited as we are to welcome our new baby girl, she won’t come without added expenses such as diapers, wipes, baby food, and clothing to name a few. Babies grow SO fast in their first year of life! Unlike my older kids who pretty much stay in the same size clothing for a year, babies outgrow several different sizes. Garanimals clothing line at Walmart is perfect for us frugal moms who don’t want to compromise quality for affordability. I’ve included a couple of my favorite clothing pieces below that will be perfect for our new baby girl.


We all know how fast infants grow. This 21-piece set would be a perfect way (on a budget) to start out.

Us southern girls love monogramming! This little t-shirt would be so cute with a big monogram across the front.

We can’t forget denim leggings! Such a cute outfit paired with the t-shirt above at an incredible price. These are just a couple of items that really caught my eye but you’ll want to check out the prices for yourself! I’ve included 3 tips and tricks below for dressing babies and toddlers on a budget.

3 Tips and Tricks for Dressing Babies & Toddlers on a Budget

1. Buy pieces that are interchangeable. For example, purchase several different color combinations so that outfits can mix and match instead of one outfit that doesn’t match anything else. By doing so, you’ll feel like you have a lot more outfit choices and won’t get bored so quickly.

2. It goes without saying that babies can be messy. Even though they don’t typically wear clothes out, they often soil their clothing. Make sure to treat stains as quickly as possible to avoid permanent stains. Throw a stain stick in your diaper bag along with a large zip lock bag to make treating stains on the go easy. By taking care of the clothes you already have, you’ll potentially avoid having to buy extra.

3. Get the most bang for your buck by purchasing affordable and quality clothing lines. Dressing babies and toddlers doesn’t mean you have to break the bank, you can buy good quality at affordable prices. Be sure to check out Garanimals brand at Walmart.

Take a peak at this quick video below, it completely cracked me up! Doesn’t it feel that way? You go to bed one day with a tiny newborn and wake up the next and have a giant toddler?

Send Expired Coupons to Military Families!

Did you know that expired coupons aren’t trash? It’s true!

Military families are allowed to use coupons up to 6 months past their printed expiration date! While the service pay rates are no longer below the poverty level, they are in no way great when you have a family. Can you imagine what a blessing it would be to receive a bundle of valuable coupons from someone back home – and realizing they cared enough to send them?

If you are interested in dropping off coupons to be sent to military families, you’ll be happy to hear that locally, the Dupont Community Credit Union has kindly volunteered each of their branches to be a drop-off point for unused and expired coupons destined for the military.  You can click on the image below to read more about the program and see the dropoff locations:

If you don’t live near a Dupont Community Credit Union you can connect on Facebook to Coups for Troops to find out more information.   Or check out the list of Military Base Volunteers here on Expires Coupons for Overseas Military.

 

Or you can also mail the coupons to the address below.

Military Families at:Brooke Seigrist, Family Services Coordinator
48 FSS/FSFR
Unit 5200, Box 105
APO, AE 09461

Phone – 011-44-1638-522641

Questions? Email – lakenheathloanlocker@googlemail.com

NOTE: Please don’t drop off coupons expired PAST the 6 month limit, or the military base personnel will be forced to sort through huge boxes of unsorted coupons to find usable ones.  Please send coupons that are just recently expired, and if you have time – tuck them into envelopes sorted by categories (i.e. Food, Baby, Household Cleaners, Toiletries, Pets….)  Thanks!!
