Tip Tuesday – Timers

It seems like we are always pressed for time. Work, kids, family, school… The list goes on and on. As a mother (or father), we know how to stretch every minute, but what about the kids? It feels like they live in a world with no time limits, no clock, and sometimes no sense of urgency. If you have this same problem, try this out. TIMERS! Find a few cheap timers at the dollar store and place them in areas where time limits need to be set. We have them near the TV, the computer, game units and even the shower! Some kids could live in the bath or shower. Move these timers outside, in a playroom, in the yard etc… the possibilities are endless. They can also be used for homework and reading times. They will be more responsible for keeping track of their time and save you some                                                                                    stress!

Thrifty Thursday – Cheap IcePacks

The more kids we have, the more icepacks we seem to need.  Lunch boxes and boo boo’s never seem to end. We keep buying icepacks and they keep disappearing! Well we’ve got a great tip that will save you money. Try using these colorful sponges instead. Soak them in water then freeze them in ziplock bags. You won’t only save money, you can use the sponges for other things around the house!

Words of Wisdom Wednesday – Steve Jobs

In light of the movie “Jobs” coming out this week, here is a quote from the man himself….Steve Jobs

 

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
-Steve Jobs
