Back to School Shopping at Deseret Industries

Back to School Shopping at Deseret Industries

This week we are in full-blown back to school mode. All summer I've been pulling out the too-small clothing items from the kiddos closets. I finally bagged them all up in anticipation of our back to school shopping at Deseret Industries. Our shopping trip did not disappoint! Not only did we drop off bags of no-longer needed clothes, but we picked up 19+ clothing items for under $50! That's two complete outfits for each child as well as some mix and match extras. Not bad, eh? We Read more [...]

So if you are doing some last-minute Back to School shopping then I suggest you head to The Children's Place! The Children's Read more [...]

Back to School at Wal-mart #BTSLikeABoss

New pencils, crayons, paper products, tissues - I love Back to School shopping! But if I have all three of my cuties with me - it's got to be fast. I am so lucky that a new Wal-mart was built right after we moved to Spanish Fork - it's the easiest for picking up everything I need for back to school. Plus I am a big fan of the Wal-mart Savings Catcher app and price matching policy. It saves us lots of money! Here's a few tips that help me keep my sanity during Back to School shopping. 1.

Pictivities – An Interactive Board Book that My Children Love!

Confession: I've been collecting children's books since I was in high school. As a child I loved reading - scratch that - I was obsessed with reading. I carried a book everywhere I went. Now that I have children of my own, I want to pass that same passion for reading on to them so I am always on the lookout for new books for our children's library. When I was introduced to the interactive children's book - Pictivities by Meg and Corbin Frost - I knew it would be a hit with my little ones. Read more [...]

I love back to school shopping! New pencils, new books, new teachers - it brings back so many great memories.

Back to School – Outdoor Reading Games

    Earlier this week these words came out of my six-year-old's mouth, "I don't want to read. Reading is boring." Gasp! As a child I carried a book wherever I went and could not get enough of the library.  How could I give birth to a child who doesn't like to read (or at least tells me so in a frustrated moment. This too shall pass, I know)? My husband or I read several books a day to our children and we listen to classics like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe while Read more [...]
