Spring Time At The Park ( Budget Friendly idea's For Fun At The Park.)




 Hello to all my friends I have a couple idea's for budget friendly activities you can do when you are visiting your favorite park. Every penny you can save this spring and summer is great because before we know it the beginning of the school year will be here. All of us mom's know that's when we have to buy school clothes and all the supplies. I was recently introduced to a site where you can set a budget and manage your money if that will help you stay on track for supplies too, This is a great site it's called Personal Capital's financial software tools and app So lets have fun in the sun.

Number one tip take a trip to the dollar store. One of my favorite spots to go to get fun activities is the dollar tree. My son just turned five and he is really into exploring and bugs. Can you believe I found two bug catching kits for one dollar. We are going to find some bugs. Another activity I found was finger shooters. Finger shooters for foam and safe to play. All you do is pull back with your finger and they launch. My third find was magnet horse shoes. I have never seen these before so I had to get them. Horse shoes for perfect for the park. When I was a little girl my dad would play real horse shoes at the park. So I had to get them and they are save. My forth find was bubbles every kid loves bubbles. Again everything was a dollar.

My second tip is to go to Walmart. A great place to get budget friendly activities. I got a bubble machine for around 9 dollars. Its called the Gazillion Tornado Premium Bubble Machine, Also I got a bowling set for around 7 dollars and don't forget the caulk it was only 97 cents. It's always good to have more the one options for your kids to play with at the park because being smaller they like to move on to other things quicker.

My third tip is make or pick up easy picnic food. BLT sandwiches are good to make , pasta salad , and fresh fruit. Today we went to Walmart and got an already made sub sandwich for 5 dollars. It is always good to have water. Water is better then soda because it is so hot. But anything you have at home to make saves money. I also used the ice from my ice machine for our ice chest. Remember every dollar counts.

My fourth tip is look around your house for fun activities to do at the park. I found a football and some other balls and a tennis set we had that we never played. Like I said anything you have saves money and who does not want to save.

My final tip. Just have fun with your family. These days we are always in a hurry and it is just nice to get out and breath in that fresh air and relax.

Here are photo's of are fun time at the park!!
















Have a great day everyone and great week.

Keep Kind and Support the Kind Campaign from Keep collective



Hello to all my friends I'm happy to tell you I teamed my with Jenn from Bliss to Bean to tell you about the Kind Campaign from Keep collective and the piece's my Designer Jenn created I honestly fell in love with this collection. The inspiring words and positive messages the collection as just touched my heart. Hopes that women and girls wear them and show kindness where ever they are in the world spend the word and be good to one another.

This is just a great cause for woman and girls to support each other. The reason this is so close to my heart as you know I have been through so much this past couple years with my health and without the encouraging words from my sister, mom, mother in law and friends it would of been a lot harder for me to cope with the harder times. It helped me to stay positive and know everything was going to be fine.I can't express how much every kind word meant to me.

Keep collective just as so many different keepers and keys so with your Designer you can pick out a piece that fits you and means something to you.I was touched by the jewelry I jumped at a chance to host a social. I was so happy to receive my keeper from Jenn. It was the black saddle keeper and my key placed on it said ( Believe ). She touched my heart when I opened it up its like she knew how I been feeling.Its been a rough couple of years and the word believe was the perfect word. I have linked Jenn's Site here keep collective so just click there and see all the meaningful jewelry. They have just put so much thought into the jewelry and makes you feel special. Here is a believe Keeper I really love it.




Black saddle keeper is so soft when you put it on,





Hope everyone is having a great day and thank you for stopping by and remember just believe.
