Future CSN Giveaway!

I am sitting at my "desk" emailing different businesses about my Day of Giveaways coming up. I say "desk" because it is actually my kitchen bar! That leaves me a prime target for children, interruptions, my husband and snacking (those darn Girl Scout Cookies)! I wish I had a home office! I can't imagine having home office furniture and having a place for everything. Now...I do have a desk, but it's in the bonus room where my son's video games have taken over! Even worse than the kitchen I am afraid! has some great home office furniture! They are also great because they always sponsor my blog and do giveaways for my readers. So stay tuned for a future giveaway from

Frugal Friday Tip- $2.48 Window Treatment!

We bought our home in October and I am just now getting around to decorating other parts of the house besides the nursery! Every room needs painted, but that is a task for people that don't have a 6 week old colicky baby keeping them up! So for now, just decorating the plain jane white rooms will do!

I am decorating in my favorite "Shabby Antique Chic" look, which I love!!! I could spend all day in antique stores!!! So my husband gave me a little money and I have been having fun. I will post pics up when I get done!

I wanted a unique window treatment and couldn't find anything online, but I ran across some napkins on clearance at Target and thought...I can do something with those!

So, for $2.48 and a tension rod I already had, this is what I came up with! Pretty impressed at myself!

What a Helper!

My 2 year old loves to help me, I had to laugh when I came back from the other room and I found my Squash/Apple Casserole had gotten this addition!

What A Helper!

Frugal Friday Post- Frugal Bottle Warmer!

It's amazing the gadgets they have now for babies! It's all about convenience and making it seem like you just "have" to "HAVE" it!

One day when I was out shopping pre-baby and getting last minute things, I headed over to the bottle warmers. I was asking the sales lady at a baby chain store if she had any experience with bottle I had none! I was thinking it might come in handy for those early morning/late night feedings when I can barely see straight, let alone warm a bottle! It's then when she said...just use a crockpot! "What...a crockpot?" I said as my frugal ears were now on fire!!! So, she explained it to me, and I thought it was genius!

So, what you do is put some water in a crockpot and set it on high to get warm. It will take a few hours. When it is at the right temp just set on low or stay warm depending how your crockpot heats. Then stick a bottle of just water in and let it sit and get warm. Then when feeding time comes, pull it out and add formula! Not only is it that easy but it also humidifies your house!

You don't have to use a large crockpot for this, it's just all I have!

Has anybody else tried this? Do you have any frugal baby ideas to share?

Frugal Valentine's Day Ideas

Valentine's Day is less than a week away, so now is the time to start thinking about what to do for that special someone(s)!

I have racked my brain for some creative, fun and FRUGAL ideas to help you celebrate the holiday of "LOVE"!

Lunch or Dinner Family Date-

Last year my family celebrated with a "Heart Themed Lunch"! Homemade pizzas w/ heart shaped pepperoni, heart brownies, red Kool-Aid, real plates, glasses and napkins!

Hershey's Kiss Valentine's Day Treasure Hunt-

When your kids wake up have them start a Valentine's Day Treasure Hunt from their bed. I heard an idea where you can have a path of Hershey's Kisses in different colors for each kid going to a special treat at the end or to their first clue. The prize doesn't have to be expensive...maybe a card, a stuffed animal, a heart shaped pancake breakfast, etc.

Make Cards- I love it when I get homemade cards. That means my husband actually had to "think" about it rather than just stop at the store. Not only does it mean more but it is so much cheaper! I can't believe cards are $3.00-$4.00 anymore!

Decorate With Hearts- Simply cut hearts out of paper, or reuse the leftovers from that page where only one coupon printed out! Then color them if you are extremely frugal and don't have colored paper and take them around the house, on the fridge, on the toilet, on the bathroom mirror! Go a step farther and leave little notes on them too! The kids will LOVE this!

Ideas For The Woman In Your Life- MEN PAY ATTENTION

*Give her a day to herself, even just an hour, heck even just breakfast!!!! I personally would just like to shave my legs in peace!!!

*Give her a massage!

*Write her a love note!

*How about crossing off some honey do's without being told! *hint*hint* Drew!!!!

Ideas For The Man In Your Life- Women Pay Attention!

*Let them do their hobby WITHOUT griping! To go the distance, let them go ALL day!

*Initiate "you know"!

*Make their favorite meal or dessert!

*Make his lunch with a special love note inside!

Do you have any Frugal Valentine's Day Ideas? Please share them with us!!!
