This year I was on the hunt to find high quality bathing suits under $30! That my friends, is a challenge I took on just for YOU! Well… and maybe a little for myself.
Let’s just say I am not complaining about me cute new bathing suits!
Imagine yourself at the end of a long day, slipping into a hot bath filled with gentle bubbles softly massaging your skin. Tell me that doesn’t sound like heaven!
Thanks to the brilliant invention of the bath bomb this is now possible at home. The problem with this though, is that bath bombs at the store cash in around $6-$10. EACH!
That is one expensive bath!
BUT GUESS WHAT? How about I show you how to make bath bombs? How about I show you how to make an entire batch of DIY bath bombs for less than $3 total!
Completely blank sits a white wall in my kitchen, just begging for a bulletin board.
I first thought, “Cool, I’ll just go buy a piece of cork board and put fabric over it, call it good.” Well, turns out cork board is not that cheap.
Plan B, keep my eyes open for an old bulletin board to refinish. Turns out, it didn’t take me long to find one at a local thrift store.
Best part, I bought it for only $2! After purchasing the board, fabric, and tacks, I spent total about $8. Not bad at all for a completely custom bulletin board!
Here is the challenge, put together 12 centerpieces, all for under $20. At first thought it might sound completely doable, but if you have ever thrown a party before, you know that those party expenses can add up super quick!
If you do the math, that makes each centerpiece $1.67, now does this sound a little more of a challenge? Don’t let that discourage you! I am going to show you the very best strategies for throwing a party on a budget!
You know those days where you have been running around from store to store to just get a couple things? You can only find like one thing at each store. So long ensues your scavenger hunt around town to finish checking off your list.
Then… you get home and realize that you still forgot something! Ahhhh!!!!
You might have guessed this is what happened to me today.
Tonight at our church we had a trunk-or-treat activity and of course the kids dress up. Well, to complete their outfits, the kids needed some face paint. That is exactly what I forgot.
Just the thought of running out to the store one more time was torture on its own!
That’s when I thought. “I wonder if I can figure out how to make face paint?”
Cue the choir! Hallelujah! Thank you Pinterest!

You know how they talk about the many many MANY hats of a mom. The chef, the chauffer, the nurse, the teacher, the counselor, the doctor, and the list really is endless.
Well, who has the cash to pay for all those outfits? Not this girl! That’s for sure!
The good news is that there is a simple solution to help you dress the part of carpool in the morning and flawlessly transition for a hot hubby date night! All with making a few simple tweaks to a must have closet staple.
One of my top tips when on the hunt for a thrift store find, is to keep your eyes open for patterns and prints that you love. That was the case with this oversized women’s button up shirt.
As my sister and I walked through the aisles of clothing at our last thrift store hunt, this bright print caught my eye. I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do with it, but the print yelled “spring” at me. So for $3, I snatched it up!
