I Want My Kids to Fail

I Want My Kids to Fail.

I found and read this interesting article today. I have to say that I agree. I want my children to fail. Not all of the time but every once in a while. I do not want my children to grow up in a fantasy land. They need to learn that there are hardships in life and that life just plain isn’t fair sometimes. Obviously I want the best for my girls and want them to be happy but they a little disappointment never hurt anyone.

Saving Money On Books – 5 Books For $2.13

I believe that there is so much more to being frugal than simply using coupons. I hardly ever pay full price for anything. On the rare occasion that I have to it just breaks my little heart. My oldest daughter loves to be read to and I am trying to get her into a bed time routine which includes a nightly story. If my daughter is anything like your kids they probably rip out the pages and sometimes use them as a coloring book. Now you may just say that is free to go to the library but I admitley am not good at returing them on time and I have to pay full price for a fee that my daughter decided to ruin.

So I found some thrift stores in and around Boise that have very cheap kids books. I went today to the Idaho Youth Ranch on Overland Blvd and purchased these five books for only $2.13. Some of the books in there are not in the best condition but majority of them are like new. So here is what I got:

  • Princess and The Snarls (Brand New) – Goes for $20.95 on Amazon.com – I paid $1.25
  • I Know An Old Lady…. (Excellant Used Condition) – Goes for $6.99 on Amazon.com – I paid $0.25
  • Coloring Book On The Five Senses (Brand New) – $1.95 Price on it – I paid $0.13
  • A Care Bare Book (excellant Used Conditon) – $5.99 Price on it – I paid $0.25
  • Bear Want More (Brand New) – Goes for $12.23 on Amazon.com – I Paid $0.25

The total retail for these books = $48.11

I paid $2.13

Total Saving Of $45.98 or 96%

Babies

I went and picked up the Valentine’s Day pictures I had taken of the girls last month. It shocked me to see how much Morgan has grown in the last four weeks. It makes me joyful and sad to see my baby growing up and changing so much. I am making a resolution to enjoy every possible moment I have with my children. They are only children for so long and I realize that I want to enjoy every minute.

Blogging

Hello Everyone,

I have never blogged before so bear with me as this will be my first post. I realized that I am making changes in my life and want to be able to share that with others. I want to share my ideas on parenting and running a household. I want to post the best store and online deals to purchase things that we all need. I want this to be a blog that is well rounded and relevant to other moms. I want to share great deals with you but I also want to focus on recipes, household ideas, parenting, and fun things to do with kids. I hope you enjoy reading my post.
