As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her Halloween looks. I was even more pleasantly surprised that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Head to our blog to find out how. Have you ever made your own costume? .

I will never forget the day we brought Elle home from the rescue. Super Dad took one look at her and said he was sure she was part lion... She was just missing the mane. So, when we had to decide what type of costume to get Elle this year for Halloween, I knew she HAD to be a lion! And @chewy had the perfect costume for her! Of course, Super Dad and Falynn had to get in on the action too. 
Now tell us, WHO WORE IT BEST?
Super Dad, Falynn or Elle?

Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

Clothes Shopping on a Budget – 4 Outfits for $20

What would you say if I told you that I was able to get outfits for my husband and three kids for under $20 total?  One store.  One twenty dollar bill.  It was a challenge that we decided to take on and we totally crushed it.

The Store.

I’ve always been a deal lover, but lately we’ve been on a pretty tight budget so getting new clothes just hasn’t been an option.  I decided to take the family to our local Goodwill to check out the racks and see what we could find.  I presented them all with a challenge… to find an outfit that they love for around $5.  They gladly accepted.

Even my 5 year old, Falynn, got into it. She loved looking at everything, especially the newborn clothes.  She couldn’t help but show me all of the tiny sweaters and pants.  It’s hard to believe she was just wearing things that small and now she’s about to graduate from pre-school.

It was probably the best shopping trip ever. Not only did the girls have a blast searching the racks to choose their own outfits, but with prices starting at $1.49, I had a hard time leaving anything behind.  On the way home, they were actually talking about doing this again next month and couldn’t wait to wear their outfits to church the following day.

So let me brag a bit about what they chose and how much they cost.

Falynn’s Top and Jeans – Total $2.98

This adorable Carter’s top was brand new, with the tags still on and was only $1.49!  It can be worn as a dress or a top and is bright and fabulous, just like Falynn’s personality.  She also chose a pair of Cherokee jeans that were also $1.49.  These were a favorite of mine because they have an adjustable waist and will fit her for at least a year.

Iyla’s Romper – Total $1.49

I absolutely fell in love with this Xhilaration romper as soon as Iyla showed it to me.  Not only does it have beautiful detailing on the front, but the back has these great buttons that really wow you.  Iyla’s always been a comfort girl, when it comes to her clothes.  So while this romper is comfortable, it’s also really pretty and feminine.  It has a drawstring belt with tassels that add both flair and style.  While it wasn’t brand new, it really was in excellent condition! At only $1.49, it was an absolute steal.

Lucia’s Top and Jeans – Total $7.48

living on a budget, family budget, thrift store challenge, goodwill, budget blog, parenting, parenting tips, parenting blog, love, life, mom blog, mom blogger, mom bloggers, mom blogs

Lucia was able to find a lot more than she thought she would. Now that she’s wearing adult sizes, she was afraid that she was going to be looking at “old lady” shirts.  Instead, she found at least 10 things that she loved and actually had a hard time choosing which two pieces she was going to get. She wound up choosing this adorable Total Girl tank that features a pineapple design and was only $1.49. While she tried on a bunch of different jeans, she couldn’t stop talking about how comfortable these Mossimo jeans were.  They looked great, are part of her school uniform (yay) and were only $5.99.

Nelson’s Top and Pants – Total $7.98

While the girls were having a blast, Daddy got to search for an outfit for himself.  This Greg Norman polo was only $4.99.  The Kirkland Signature khakis were 50% off, ringing up at only $2.99 and also were in excellent condition.  For an outfit that would have easily cost $50 brand new, he really got an incredible deal and looks great, doesn’t he?

We really loved this shopping on a budget challenge. The girls learned a little bit about shopping on a budget and walked away with some super cute clothes. Falynn even got a little something extra that we found by the register… her own Russian nesting dolls, for only $2.99.

Have you ever shopped in a thrift store? What was your experience?  Do you think we should do this again to see if we can score such good deals?

We walked in with $20 and walked out with outfits for my husband and our three daughters. It's shopping on a budget at it's finest. living on a budget, family budget, thrift store challenge, goodwill, budget blog, parenting, parenting tips, parenting blog, love, life, mom blog, mom blogger, mom bloggers, mom blogs

    You are a miracle worker! I can’t imagine dressing my family for so little but am definitely not into spending the kind of money some people feel comfortable spending on just one item either. Have never understood the designer thing to be honest. Your kids are so cute by the way and I love that mustard yellow romper!

    I’m in the same boat as you, I just can’t justify spending a fortune on clothes. I’m always on the lookout for a good bargain in the sales. There are certain shops around me that sell tops from as little as 20p 🙂

    Four outfits for $20 make you the mom of the year!! That’s an incredible savings and they all look adorable!

    I’ve always shopped mom2mom sales or thrift stores for my kids clothes – if not, they were hand me downs from family members. Our thrift stores are all in order by color, not size, so it can get a little frustrating trying to find my size…But I manage.
