DIY Mini Mug Candle

It is that awesome time of the month again when we get together to share our projects for the Monthly Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge! Since Mother’s Day is in a few weeks, I thought I’d help you out with a DIY gift idea. Surprise the mom in your life even if that mom is you! (No judgement here, momma.) This DIY mini mug candle is fast, easy, and frugal. Before we get the tutorial, I want to point out that I used recycled candle wax that I had collected over the years. My wax was already scented and colored so I didn’t have to add any of that. That is why you will see in the Materials that scented oil is optional.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.

DIY Dragonfly Fingerprint Succulent Planters

Every year we love surprising the grandmas with a handmade gift from the kiddos. The kids love making it and grandma delights at the surprise. This year we made these adorable DIY dragonfly fingerprint succulent planters. They are easy to make and your kiddos will love getting messy with paint. (Just don’t forget to put on their aprons or shirt to protect their clothes.) A little tip to make the process easier: give each kid and extra pot and some paint then let them go nuts. This will keep them from getting impatient waiting to add their fingerprints to the planters.

These DIY dragonfly fingerprint succulent planters were such a blast to make! The youngest got upset that green paint got on his hands which made it even more adorable. Don’t forget to give your kids a pot to paint to keep them entertained while they wait to put their fingerprints on. This saved my life during this project. This is also a great DIY for moms if teachers or dads want to get in on the artistic action. You can get more fun Mother’s Day ideas with these Kid Made Mother’s Day Storybooks. They are a fantastic way to preserve memories and a great way for kids to practice their writing skills.

The end of the school year is bittersweet. Let your child pull out this DIY end of year autograph scrapbook when missing school or friends this summer.

DIY End of Year Autograph Scrapbook

The end of the school year is fast-approaching. For a lot of kids (and moms) the end of the year is bittersweet. Your schedules are thrown out of what which can be frustrating. Kids miss playing with friends that they only see at school. On the flip side, you have more time to spend together and strengthen your family. If your kids love school as much as mine, though, they will miss it and all of their teachers over the summer too. Unfortunately you can’t change the school year but you can give your child a keepsake to look back on over the summer break. Let him collect memories of the school year with a DIY end of year autograph scrapbook.

Free Printable Room by Room Cleaning Checklists

How are you coming with your new habits this month? I haven’t quite gotten my routine down but I have been sticking to cleaning every day. It is so nice to have a clean home, especially our kitchen and dining room. What is it about these rooms that make them a magnet for messes? Now, I’ve managed to stay on top of the dishes and the kids have been helping with the dining room. One of the best tools I have been using is these printable room by room cleaning checklists for each room! They make it easy to keep track of all of the weekly cleaning tasks for each room of your home.

Get Your Printable Room by Room Cleaning Checklists

Grab your free printable cleaning checklists by clicking on the pictures below and print them out. Once you’ve printed them, cut each one out and fill out any additional cleaning tasks not already listed. There is also a blank one to add another room such as your office or the kids’ play room. I totally recommend laminating the cleaning checklists and storing them in the rooms they coordinate with. You can check the tasks off as you complete them with a dry erase marker and wipe it clean when you’re done.

How to Use Printable Room by Room Cleaning Checklists

You can clean these areas on these lists every day if you would like. I am not that ambitious, though. Instead, I have added one room each day to my daily cleaning list. There are some tasks that need to be done every day to stay on top of your home. Here are the tasks on my daily cleaning list:

  • Dishes
  • Laundry
  • Sweep/Vacuum
  • Nightly Tidy
  • One Room

That “one room” on the list is one of the printable room by room cleaning checklists. Assign one room to each day. The only exception to this for my list is that I clean all of the bedrooms on one day but that is up to you.

Room by Room Cleaning Kits

The next step is to create cleaning kits for each room. You can easily clean the rooms when all of the supplies you need is together. I’ll show you how to make these next week but you can go ahead and start preparing now. Pick up sponges, dusters, and cleaners for each room so that you can put them together. You can also start brainstorming where in each room you will store you cleaning kits. If needed, you can re-organize slightly to accommodate them.

I want to leave you with one last tip. I have a friend that have been telling me for years that one person can’t expect to be able to clean up after 5 people and she is so right. She always says this to make me feel better when I’m falling behind on housework. What I didn’t realize was that I was making one huge mistake and you might be making the same one. I am not responsible for cleaning up after my family single-handedly and neither are you. Start enlisting your kids to help you. I finally realize that I am not giving my kids enough responsibility around the house. They expect that I will handle everything. This month all of that is finally changing. Let your kids be a part of creating a clean home that you’re proud of. Even toddlers can, and should, help around the house. What are your tips for keeping a clean home? I’d love to hear them in the comments!

Fill 5 Easter baskets for under $50 with these tips! #savemoney #Easter Click To Tweet

Make Your Own Candy

First things first, cut back on the amount of candy that you put in the baskets. Filling the baskets with more gifts and less candy means that fewer items are needed to fill the basket. To further save, make your own candy at home. We bought this cross mold 2 years ago to make our own chocolates for the baskets and it has been worth every penny. Hard candies are another easy candy to make. You can go even further and try your hand at making your own peeps.

Skip the Grass

I don’t know about you but I hate that plastic Easter grass. It always ends up all over the house for weeks after the holiday has ended. A few years ago I started filling the baskets with tissue paper and it’s fantastic. We always have some on hand and it is easily folded for storage. It is an easy and economical alternative.

Reuse Your Baskets

Don’t buy new Easter baskets every year. If you decide you want to freshen up your baskets, give them a makeover. I am a fan of traditional baskets and ours are getting an awesome Pokémon makeover this year. However, those plastic Easter buckets can be easily updated as well.

 

Hollar is Your Secret Weapon

When you have a budget of $10 per basket it is important to bargain shop. That is where Hollar comes in. Instead of running all over town in search of the best deals, I can jump on Hollar and get everything. The best part is that shipping is free with purchases over $25 which means your entire budget can go to basket-fillers. This year, I was able to get brand name items to fill our baskets at a fraction of the cost. Here are just a few of the items I scored this year:

Those deals don’t even scratch the surface of what you can find on Hollar. Your family can have an awesome Easter on a small budget. We were able to fill 5 Easter baskets for under 50 dollars and you can too! Did I mention that if you sign up for a new account you’ll get a $2 credit towards your purchase? That’s free money to fill your baskets! If you want even more ways to save on Easter find out how you can make the day easier with this DIY Golden Bunny Bank.

This easy DIY golden bunny bank is a gorgeous addition to your Easter décor. It will also help feed your bank obsession!
