Pantry Tips

A well stocked pantry is a wonderful way to keep your food budget low. The problem lies in remembering what you have and not forgetting what you have bought. A simple way to do this is to write each item that you buy and then put a slash next for the quanity that you have. Then when you use up that item you put a slash the other way (making an X).

<---- I use this free printable . It can be found here. I do the same with my freezer.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day! I hope that you all enjoyed your day!

Mine was good. This year Daddy was so busy that he didn't get a chance to take them shopping for me. I didn't mind at all because I didn't want anything. Daddy felt bad though and so when we made an unexpected stop at Wal-Mart on Saturday he gave the boys 10.00 each and told them to meet us in the front in 15 minutes.

My 10 year old bless his heart bought me the above. He thought he was getting me a wreath to hang on my wall. He didn't realise that it was meant for my grave. We all had a chuckle over that. I told him I would go to the craft store and buy him a wooden wreath that he can hot glue the flowers on so I can hang it up. I think this just might be my most memorial Mother's Day present ever.
