I'm also incorporating this with Works for me Wednesday - Frugal edition.....
So - this weekend I'm going to start trying some of them out, hopefully with the help of my lovely daughter Ashlee. Tomorrow I'm going to spend doing my usual Saturday clean and make sure my washing is all up to date so when Saturday actually comes around I won't have anything to do.
Lets move onto some linky love now. Here are some things I would like to try out this weekend:
Stop using plastic zip lock bags!
great tut about making your own reusable snack bags. I think they are a great idea but will probably add a little snapable flap to it so that it can be closed up for the lunch box. This is a maybe....
Don't buy them a bag for preschool - make them one!
Zach and Anna are in need of a little bag to take to preschool. Something that will just hold their lunch box, drink bottle and a change of clothes. I thought this would be a good idea consider I have a ton of ton of towels around here.
Make your own kids clothes and save money!
this a try either. I actually have a couple of pretty tea towels in the fabric cupboard that I kept just for something like this.
Then you have Shorts from tea towels! This also appeals to me. Tea towels can be picked up for very little in your local Sam's (or dollar store).
I love Baby Legs but we only have 1 pair each for the twins because the cost so much. Now I can get out the old stockings of Anna's and cut them up to make these. Great idea I think and would be a huge saving!
I think that would be it. I don't even know if I will get through them! We will see what the weekend holds.
