GUEST POST: Great Frugal Ideas for Spring & Easter!

Thank you to My Creative Stirrings for sharing some frugal ideas for Easter and Spring!!  Make sure to look at the Bunny Pudding Cup...Adorable!  Pudding is one of my staples. :)  Now it will be an Easter staple as well. :):) - Audrey

Come explore frugal creative crafts, yummy foods, and fun 
activities all created by me, MyCreativeStirrings!

Here are a few ideas that I have posted over the past year and a half that can help you have a fun, creative, and frugal Easter and spring!
1. This Spring/Easter Table Setting cost me a total of $1.67.  It is fun, colorful, and definitely sets the tone for spring!  One of my secrets...use what you already have!  Pull out everything you think could work and play around.  If you need additional elements figure out how you can achieve this using item’s you own or could find outside.




2. I created this Spring/Easter Table Runner for the previous table setting using scraps of fabric.  Next time you de-junk your wardrobe make sure you save articles of clothing that could be cut up and used in craft projects.  It is a great way to save money!


3. This Easter Gift- Bunny Service Jar is a cheap neighbor or friend gift.  The bunny pudding cup is the reward the receiver can make after they fulfill the service activity!


4. Surprise your sweetheart with stay at home Easter Date Ideas


5. Another fun Easter Dinner table setting that only cost me a few dollars.  Another secret- I used a bed sheet for the table cloth (I know it sounds a little disturbing...just make sure you wash it and don't tell your guests as they'll never know).


6. This Bunny Survival Kit was an inexpensive not to mention original Easter gift from the Easter Bunny.

Have fun planning and stay tuned for more cheap creations from www.mycreativestirrings.com

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
