What's an affordable and fun family activity?

Chrysa Duran

When it's cold out out or rainy, we like to bake. Baking our own bread and treats is cheaper than buying pre-made and its a fun activity as well as a great learning experience with measurements and even the "science" of baking.

What's a great source to buy formal clothing for children?

Chrysa Duran

Consignment stores are an excellent source for kids' formal clothing. Since these are often items they will only be wearing once, it doesn't make sense to sink a lot of money into the purchase. And going along with the "only worn once" theme, many of the items in the consignment store are like new since they were just worn for one occasion. When your even is over, you can return to the store again and resell to recoup a portion of what you paid.
