It’s time for another Lazy Mom Tip!
[cheers and applause]
I know. I always get excited about them too!
This tip was emailed to me by my good friend, Jenilee. As soon as I read it, it totally reminded me of a tip of my own, so today and today only, you will be receiving TWO tips for the price of ONE!
[gasps and cries of joy]
Yes, we are that awesome. We lazy moms want to bless you with two tips for the price of one.
So, what’s the price of these two tips??? It will only cost you this….
What can I say? We try to keep things cheap around here. So these two tips will only cost you a dollar (per kid) because here’s the tip from Jenilee….
I took my girls to the dollar store yesterday and they each got to spend a dollar. It has given me hours of happy play time. They each bought one container of bouncing puddy and I would spend that dollar again anytime!
Oh, yeaaaaah! That’s my kind of tip! Something that will buy you hours of precious mommy time! If you haven’t tried it, GO DO IT.
So when I read her tip it reminded me of a very similar tip that I can’t even believe I haven’t shared by now! But this tip is about traveling.
What to do with bored kids on a LOOOOONG trip? Stop at the nearest Dollar Store and let them each buy a new toy. It provides them at least an hour of fun and you at least an hour of peace!
We’ve done this many times on our very long trips to see family. Getting everybody out of the car and walking around the dollar store is a nice break and leg-stretcher. But the best part is, it’s so cheap! We spend a dollar on each kid and they each get a new toy to play their little hearts out with. It’s great!
So thanks Jenilee for your great tip! A trip to the Dollar Store is the perfect idea for those days when you just need a break or you are about to loose your mind! Whichever describes you best.
