The Mommy Journal: Letters To Your Child – I started one of these when I was pregnant with each of my kids. I try to update it weekly but let's be honest I'm lucky to do it monthly. It' an excellent way to keep up with everything they are doing and to mark their milestones. This is one of my favorite baby gift ideas. The parents can give this to the child when they turn 18 such a great keepsake!
Preschool Prep 10 DVD Reading Set – Basics, Sight Words & Phonics – Ok parents let be honest, who here had DVDs in their car for their kids….. yep my hand is in the air too. These DVDs are my go two car DVDs. They catch my kids attention they keep teaching them, and they save my sanity on longer trips!

I HATED bending down into the tub to get my little ones a bath so around my 2nd child I started using the kitchen sink, and this just makes bath time fun for baby and parent! Such a fun baby gift! We have this in pink, and it has saved my back during bath time.

I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
