A new baby splurge

As you can gather from reading this blog I am pretty much a tight fisted person. I don't like to see my money leave my bank account. It hurts. 

But I did make a new baby splurge when I purchased these two cute tops from my friend Jennifer at Miss AE Boutique

When baby brother arrives in just nine weeks (more or less) we and big brother will have these cute little tops to wear for photos. 

I am so excited! 

Since I am all about getting as much for baby as possible used or free I don't feel bad making a purchase like this. 

Has there been a time in your life where you felt okay to splurge?


Aunt Jemima Lil Griddles for Lil Fingers

My little guy loves to eat. And I love to cook. So we are a perfect pair. But as I have said before. I cannot make pancakes. It's like a freak disorder! And since I work at home, I don't always have extra time to whip up a batch from scratch. 


Here comes, Aunt Jemima Lil' Griddles! We don't eat a lot of prepackaged foods, but I am a big fan of the Aunt Jemima buttermilk waffles. So when I saw the Lil Griddles Mini Pancakes I knew my little bits would love them.

Mommy Monday: Save Cash on Kid's Clothes

It's Mommy Monday and today's topic is saving money on kid's clothes. 

Kid's clothes can be pricey. But only if you let them. In my house we observe the 90/10 rule. That means 90 perent of our son's clothes are used. They are either hand-me-downs I got for free or things I purchased at Waterfront Rescue Mission and other thrift stores.
