I don’t know about you, but I LOVE me a good Target run. Especially one without kids – it’s a little slice of heaven! That’s why when I came across this list on ScaryMommy.com I simultaneously cracked up and totally related, especially to number 7: “Set latte down in cart while contemplating new workout gear that will be worn for sitting on the couch,” and number 3: “Browse housewares section for no apparent reason.” I’d also add “Cruise makeup aisles” and “Hit the dollar section first!” How about you? Can you relate? Check out the full list here.
You tell yourself, “They don’t know what they’re saying.” They’re repeating something they’ve heard before and it’s totally out of context. I’m not to worry about it.
Kids can say some odd things sometimes. Here’s a list we found on TheMetaPicture.com that lists some of the oddest things kids have said to their parents. Do you have any to add? Let us know with your comments below.
(StatePoint) Regardless of whether you’re a dog, cat, bird or other pet lover, most people can agree that pets are part of the family. Caring for your pet doesn’t have to cost a fortune with a few helpful tips.
In honor of National Pet Month this May, the experts at Dollar General are offering some helpful advice for saving on pet care.
Consider making homemade toys for your pet. There’s nothing more satisfying than watching your pet bat around a catnip mouse or chase after a crinkle toy that you made with love. Look for pet-friendly craft ideas online.
First, choose a pet food that balances your budget with your pet’s dietary needs. Consider the new EverPet food, treats and toys, which are available exclusively at Dollar General, to help nourish and spoil your pet without costing you a fortune.
Another way you can save money on pet food is to avoid overfeeding by following label instructions for the recommended amount of food you should give your pet. These are generally based on weight and activity level. With a proper and balanced diet, you can help keep your pet healthier and happier and spend less in the process.
One of the best ways to show your pet love is by spending some quality time together. Beyond giving your pet a healthy dose of exercise and fresh air, the best part of an extra-long walk or a game of catch is that it’s entirely free!
Pet care can be expensive, so be careful where you shop for your pet’s medical needs. From heartworm medication to flea and tick treatments to hypoallergenic shampoos, a discount retailer like Dollar General can help you save on these necessary items.
All your pet needs are available at more than 11,000 Dollar General locations, and for more frugal pet care advice, visit www.DollarGeneral.com/Pet.
If your budget for pet care is limited, learn more about how you can take better care of your pet for less this National Pet Month.
(StatePoint) With Easter just around the corner (April 20th!), you’re probably thinking about how to keep the holiday celebration fresh and new, while also honoring those family Easter traditions everyone loves. One way to meld old and new in celebration of Easter is through everyone’s favorite holiday tradition — the food!
The Main Dish
To avoid the same Easter meal year after year, consider spicing up your traditional entrees. If you’re hosting brunch for friends and family, keep the entrée light and save yourself some time by incorporating everyone’s favorite Easter staple – eggs. From quiche to frittatas to casseroles, several dishes can be prepared the day before and get you out of the kitchen and spending more time with friends and family.
If your family celebrates with dinner, serve a ham with a citrus glaze for a tangy approach or prepare your roast with a garlic mint rub for a new spin on the traditional dish.
For a new take on sides, switch up your vegetables and take advantage of the fresh spring produce, such as asparagus, chives, peas, artichokes, and shallots, and incorporate it into your dishes. Easter often involves heavy entrees so consider roasting vegetables with fresh herbs in olive oil to whet your guests’ appetites and balance the meal.
Easter isn’t Easter without delicious sweet treats! The holiday only comes once a year so make it a family tradition to serve something memorable and special.
Easter is all about variety, so fill your Easter baskets with hand-decorated eggs, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, truffles, and lollypops that have no added preservatives. American-made delicious, See’s makes their treats in their own candy kitchens, using only the finest ingredients. For more Easter holiday candy ideas, visit www.Sees.com.
Easter should be delicious so fill your holiday with fresh, seasonal meals and treats and enjoy!
