Here are 5 great tips to help you load the lunchbox and save money at the same time.
1. Buy Ahead
When you are shopping, keep an eye out for items your kids LOVE to go on sale. Maybe its Teddy Grahams or Goldfish or fruit snacks or even raisins. Most foods follow a 10-12 week sale cycle. The goal is to purchase items at their lowest cost, paired with a coupon. Then, buy enough to last you until the next sale comes around (about 10 – 12 weeks worth). Not only will you will save on the items your kids love, you’ll stay stocked up on lunchbox items. [Read more...]
I love the beginning of school year – the teacher’s have all put so much creativity into decorating their classrooms! Walking through the hallways during orientation night gets me inspired to organize and cutesy up my own house – and this year I totally STOLE this crayon clip idea from Mrs. Smith’s classroom at Arnold Memorial Elementary
This is a super-easy craft you can make and uses very cheap supplies – most of which you probably have lying around!
While Mrs. Smith had hers hanging on a clothesline in the hallway - I decided to make them into refrigerator magnets for all the masterpieces my kids will be bringing home from school.
- Crayola Crayons
- Hot Glue
- Strong Magnets
1) Let your kids each pick their favorite color, so they will have a special clip just for displaying their favorite masterpiece each week. Addie picked Blue!
2) Hot glue a line along the clothes pin and stick the crayon to it, Crayola side up (I think it just looks cuter that way).
3) Now hot glue a nice strong magnet to the back so it can stick to the fridge. I tried to cut some of those thin magnets into strips (you know the ones you get free from Little Ceasar’s and whatnot) but they could barely hold up the clothespin and crayon, much less a painting as well.
My kids came home and went “cooool” – they loved ‘em! Let us know if you get a chance to try this out – or if you have more ideas for getting your home ready for back to school!
If you want to remember this craft for later – check out the “Pin-Friendly” image below!
