Hello wonderful people! I hope you all are doing well. I am looking forward to a fun week with my boys. I am also excited to be consigning and shopping at a big kid's sale this week!
I thought I would share with you some money saving tips that I use to save our family money. Most of these are well known tips and others may be some that I just do but either way I way I wanted to share. Having to be frugal isn't always fun but it is doable and you can make it fun.

|Some of the hand-me-downs we were blessed with this week! The black grocery bags are full of material for me to sew with and the laundry basket is clothes for the boys.|
|The stuff I am consigning at the kids sale this week. It will be so nice to have this stuff gone and make some money!|

|Some of my groceries from my last trip. I got a 25 lb bag of flour for under $7!! All of the things listed here last longer than a month for us sometimes they last two.|
|Some of my pocket diapers. I love that I made all of them! They may not be the cutest but they work and that's all that matters!|
-Sew/make gifts. Since I began teaching myself to sew last April, I have been making the majority of the gifts for the various celebrations I attend. This truly saved us a ton at Christmas since we only had to buy a small handful of gifts. There are also many gifts you can make that don't require any sewing at all. Just go on Pinterest!
|Candle holders I made my In-laws and my parents for Christmas. I simply printed some pictures of my boys on vellum paper, cut it out, glued it on, and put a sealer on them. No sewing involved and they loved them!|
