Happy Friday: Homemade Crayons for Valentine’s Day

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Gretchen:

We have another “cold day” off of school due to negative temperatures. So we are finishing off our Valentines for school. I used cards I bought last year after Valentine’s day for about 25 cents a box. Instead of attaching candy to each card, we have made crayons.

I used ice cube trays, hearts and Darth Vader heads (Darth Vader from Thinkgeek.com) and took all of our old broken up crayons to make new fun shaped crayons to go along with each card. Just make sure your ice cube trays are heat safe and set the oven to 250 – keep crayons in only until melted. This has made for really fun and inexpensive Valentines for my daughter’s class.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Happy Friday: Homemade Spelling/Study Cards

Sent from reader, Crystal:

My daughter is in the second grade and has a spelling test every week. She often gets bored with just reading the words and writing them out over and over. So I came up with a frugal and fun way to study and to help her learn her spelling words for the week.

I used a DiGiorno pizza box (that I got with a B2G1 free printable) and cut it up into flashcards. Then we took a stash of my free magazines (thanks to Hip2Save) and cut out letters from various pages and created our cards by just gluing the letters to our cardboard cut out cards. We had fun doing this together and my daughter picked up her words pretty fast!

Happy Friday: Homemade Disney Autograph Books

Sent from reader, Melanie:

My family and I are taking our first trip to Disney this February and I decided to make my own autograph books instead of purchasing books from Disney ranging from $12-$25 for 12 picture inserts or less. I printed out images of autograph pages found on a yahoo search onto cardstock and placed them into a larger photo book from Walmart for $5 each. One side is for autographs and the other side will be a place for a pic of my kids with that character that I took at Disney. I was able to save money and have more space for autographs and photos.

Happy Friday: HIP Birthday Party

We just had an amazing birthday party for my two kiddos, sponsered by Hip2save. I was able to make an adorable photo banner from Walmart with a free coupon that I got from a House Party applied for thru Hip2Save, the loot bags were filled with goodies I got for free or almost free from Hip2save posts, and my mom made a cake that was inspired by the Snow White little people post ($6.99 for all figurines!!). It was a great time and even better knowing it was a done for a great bargain!

Happy Friday: Homemade Toddler Treads

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Minde:

 I am always looking for a way to save a buck and make do with what we have. When my daughter started walking, I discovered many of the shoes I had bought her were smooth on the bottoms and were very slippy. Instead of buying new shoes I began searching for a way to fix the ones she had. I ended up finding some no-slip carpet backing underneath an area rug. I snipped a couple small pieces off, glued them onto the bottom of her shoes, and voila! The problem was fixed. Her shoes were no longer slippy and it didn’t cost me a penny.

I submitted my tip to Parents magazine and they decided to publish it! This is my daughter, Molly, showing off her shoes in the magazine!

Happy Friday: Homemade Boot Chucks

Sent from reader, Joanna:

I was shopping one day and found a useful product for keeping your tall boots upright while sitting in your closet. They were these tubular pillows. However, they were $10 for one pair! My wheels started turning and I came up with my own homemade boot chucks. The fabric cost me less than $0.75 cents, the ribbon was half off with a coupon, and I upcycled the cardboard paper towel centers. I simply stuffed with newspaper for added support (which I have a ton of thanks to coupons), wrapped in fabric (I used hot glue to do it) tied a ribbon to the top to connect them and voila! Homemade boot chucks! Super cute too! Less than one dollar for the pair!

Happy Friday: Awesome Buy at Goodwill

Sent from reader, Melissa:

Hi Collin! I’ve been reading your site pretty much since you were just a tiny blog. Over the years, you’ve taught me to always keep a watchful eye out for good deals on everything.

While at Goodwill, I found this Columbia kid’s jacket. I grabbed it thinking there must be something wrong (stains or broken zipper). To my surprise, it’s in perfect condition. It even smells clean like Tide. I checked the Columbia site and the cheapest kid’s jacket is $50. I paid a whopping $5!! That’s a steal of a deal!

Thank you for all your hard work and inspiration over the years. This just summarizes a year of us chasing the good deals you posted and stretching our dollars to be able to afford to buy lots of useful and cute stuff for our angels.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Happy Friday: Giving Back…

Sent from reader, Marisel:

I have attached a picture of the items a friend of mine and I donated to our angel tree kids. Pretty much everything that we have in this picture represents a deal we scored because YOU posted it! Remember the Target free watch with the mobile coupon, the awesome $29 bike from Walmart.com on Black Friday, the free Brita bottle, the Circo 40% off Cartwheel for kids clothes, the Target toy clearance in July for 70% off, the Circo baby Cartwheel for 30% off etc, etc?! We got it all thanks to your posts! And now, they are making two little girls happy. Even the Dollar Tree video was helpful, since that’s where we got the wrapping paper, strawberry shortcake shower gel and some other items.

This just summarizes a year of us chasing the good deals you posted and stretching our dollars to be able to afford to buy lots of useful and cute stuff for our angels.

Happy Friday: A Beautiful Symbol with So Much Meaning…

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Sent from reader, Amy:

Hi Collin! I wanted to share this photo with you. Over the summer my husband was hit by a drunk driver. He broke is leg and all of his toes. We lost our car and our only source of income because he was not able to work for 4 months. As you can imagine, we were stressed! He is back to work and things are slowly getting back to normal. Today as I was walking down my driveway, I saw this! I feel like it was a symbol for me to relax, slow down and stop worrying. A symbol that everything was going to work out just fine. I thought it was beautiful!

Sent from reader, Mary:

Due to the awesome deals we got on Black Friday, my husband and I accrued $150 in Kohl’s cash! We were looking for a good way to spend it so we looked out to people in need. There is an Angel tree through our church, so we picked some needed things and purchased them with our Kohl’s cash! Were were able to get 2 Long-sleeve shirts, 9 pairs of socks, a sweater, 2 pairs of jeans, a Tonka truck, Nerf and extra darts for a little boy (everything that was on his wish list) and were also able to get a coffee pot for another family in need! What a great way to get in the Christmas Spirit! My husband, our new baby girl, and I had a blast shopping! Thanks for all the great deals you post! Merry Christmas!
