Back Into Couponing!

While I was super sick in the fall and early winter, I decided not to coupon.  I just didn’t have time or energy.  That’s what is nice about having a stockpile of necessities – we only had to buy one or two necessities during those months without Continue Reading…

C’s Fall Wardrobe

I’ve been doing a lot of shopping in thrift and new-to-you stores as well as every clearance section I can think of while I try to assemble C’s fall and winter wardrobe.  I scored big time at Once Upon A Child, a chain resale store for kids’ items, and had to share some pics Continue Reading…

Craigslist, “Pre-Sales,” and Rummages

I’m a little late to the game, but now that rummage sale season is almost over I realized that I need a fall/winter wardrobe for C.  I’ve been perusing Craigslist a lot and have been seeing some things that confuzzle me.  Yes, confuzzle. Continue Reading…

Kids Consignment Sales

I noticed on Facebook last night that there was going to be a kids consignment sale at our local event center this weekend.  We decided to check it out and I’m so glad that we did!  We found a crib mattress for C for only $25!  Once we move, we’re Continue Reading…

Finding Baby Clothes on Consignment

The midwest is experiencing an unseasonably warm spring (as in, temperatures 30 degrees higher than normal), and I realized that all of the shorts I have for C are a size too big.  ARGH.  Um, weather, didn’t you know that I don’t want to spend Continue Reading…

Motherhood Made Me Such a Softy

I never used to be a crier.  Only something really moving (like “The Notebook”) would get the tears rolling.  That was before I had C.  Now I cry over a lot of stuff.  C laughing so hard that he gives me happy tears, C’s sad little face while he’s crying, any episode of Continue Reading…

He’s Getting So Big!

I just dressed Caleb in his first 9-month sleeper.  He’s too tall for his 6-month sleepers now.  *sniffle*  It’s so sad to pack away my favorite clothes of his.  I can’t believe he’s already in 9-month sleepers.  Can’t.  Believe.  It. Continue Reading…

C Has An Extensive Wardrobe!

C would like to thank all of his wonderful family and friends.  His mama went through his 9-month wardrobe today and is starting the process of washing it.  She was quite surprised by his extensive 9-month and 12-month clothing selection. Continue Reading…

Buy, Buy, Buy

I feel like C’s at a stage where I’m buying a bunch of stuff for him again.  Today, I had to buy a snowsuit (which I got a great deal on – thanks TJ Maxx!) and several 9- and 12-month pajamas (it’s only a matter of time before he’s too tall for those Continue Reading…

Packing Away Baby Clothes

Earlier this week, I posted about how C has been growing like a weed.  I really thought I could still get two more weeks out of the bigger sleepers and onesies.  No such luck!

I reluctantly packed away all of C’s 3-month onesies and sleepers, along with his newborn Continue Reading…

Growing Like a Weed!

I put a 6-month onesie on C for the first time today – and the length fits perfectly!  I’ve noticed that the Carter’s onesies are made for tall and skinny babies, so they have been perfect for C.  All of the other 3-6 month onesies are SO wide on Continue Reading…

Washing C’s 3-Month Clothes

I can’t believe that I’m already taking the tags off of C’s 3-month-size clothing and preparing to wash them.  That time went so quickly!  While he has already been out of his newborn-size clothing for a couple of weeks, it is strange to me that Continue Reading…
