This Week Haul

So with our move just 2 day away I have been going crazy trying to pack and get ready. My daughter is almost 2 and half and she can tell something is up.  When I pack another box she unpacks it and starts to play with whatever is in the box.  I need to keep her daily schedule the same as much as possible.

This week I have found some good scores I needed to get new colouring books for my daughter and the ones I found even the harry potter one are never used! Also the vtech book had battery's in it and works great.  We broke the head part of out swiffer and needed to replace it and guess what I found!!  We just saved $12 at the regular price.

I have found at least 4 of the codes to get free shirts, our whole family will have matching ones!

This week I also went to a free moms party and this was int he swag bag.  One free gift that I really want to do is to make a free ornament with my sons foot print.

Wordless Wednesday

Playing the woodchips with the truck we found on our walk to the park (it was headed to the dump the truck was right behind me to pick up the trash!)

New idea

So I have not had much time to post blogs in about a year it seems. Many things have changed with me in that time and I think I have found what I would like to do with this blog.  First a little update about me for those interested.  I am a frugal mom to 2 a boy and a girl.  We are in the process of moving to a bigger house so our family can continue to grow. 
On to my ideas for this blog. It started when we started to pack up our house, I noticed that we have too much stuff.  Not just us but everyone does.  What has been bothering me is how people get rid of this stuff.  I just simply go for a walk and I could easily fill my stroller plus more with useful things people are just tossing out.  So what is this blog going to focus on, well I am going to post photos of my recycle walk finds and maybe somethings that I find but I can't bring home with me. 

Toady's walk I walked past baby baths, change tables, patio chairs stools and many other things.  While I have no need for everything I did take a few things that I thought I could use.  Some I will see how it works out and others I have already offered for free for other people to pick up.

Find number 1

Some little girls barbie house that is in great shape was in the blue bin.  My daughter is only 2 and just getting into barbies so I posted this free on Freecycle and it has a new home!

Find number 2

stroller again in good shape, you can see mine in the background.  This has been offered to someone who is picking it up this week.

$4 off ground beef

Also not shown I got a cabinet for over the toilet and a play fisher price BBQ.  I will update photos of these later.

Wordless Wednesdays

I made a hair bow today while my daughter was napping . . .

(it looks huge from this angle, it is not that big on her)

Christmas Stockings 2011

My parents do so much for me and my family I thought that this coming Christmas I would take care of at least their stockings.  They currently do one for my brother his girlfriend, my husband daughter and I and themselves.  As I would still like to get them gifts the budget will be pretty low . . .

Currently I have:
- a glade candle
- $10 gc for Starbucks

wish me luck
