Welcome to Snapshot Thursdays. Please join me on Instagram to see more pictures I share all week long.
This right here is a proud thrifty mom moment, that happened this month. That is my middle child Aiden sitting in front of his new computer, that he built all by himself. He also saved up all the money for it. He did extra chores. He said no to candy, pop and even movies for over a year, so that he could make this computer. He watched hours of YouTube videos on how to build a gaming computer. He compared prices. He even reminded me to check to see if I could earn some cash back on his online order.
My daughter is one creative gal. She came downstairs last week wearing these clip on style earring that she created out of a nail,some beads and magnets that she rescued out of some broken headphones. The next day she came down wearing them with safety pins in the front.
Last Sunday I sat down and enjoyed reading “Keep The Happy In Your Holidays: 21 Ways to Save Time, Money And Your Sanity This Christmas Season” . I really enjoyed it. Inside it’s pages my blogging friend Cherie Lowe from Queen of Free shares great tips for how to spend less this Christmas holiday season.
If you are new to the whole idea of living within your means and have no clue as to where to start trimming the fat off of your Christmas expenses, I recommend reading Keep The Happy In Your Holidays. In it Cherie will hold you hand and show you all sorts of ways to save money on Christmas and give you a few laughs too.
What have your kids done this week that have made you beam with mommy pride?
I don’t know what the weather is like where you live but here in Indiana the temperatures have dropped significantly so I thought I would share some coupons for hot tea, coffee and soup to warm you up (and a few for candy, just because )
