Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

As a family, we road...

Growing up, I always wanted a sibling. I wished over every star and every birthday candle. I even asked my magic eight ball constantly if I would ever have one but as many times as it told me “all signs point to yes”, I remained an only child. I look forward to the days when my three girls appreciate that they have best friends for life... two women who will always have their back, lend them a hand or provide a shoulder to cry on. In the meantime, I make sure to create fun reasons for them to “work” together without bickering. So, I’m excited to announce that Iyla and Falynn are starting a new venture together, @thesuperkidlife and I hope you’ll follow along and show them some love. Although I will run the IG page for them for now, Iyla will be in charge of content and stories, so you’re in for a treat! They already have their first sponsored posts lined up! Stay tuned. . .

If you’ve never tried them, this is your reason to. If you’ve tried them and aren’t really a fan, this recipe is going to change your mind! I haven’t met a person who wasn’t a fan after they tried my collard greens. After years of keeping this recipe all to myself, I’m finally sharing it to change the minds of all of those greens-haters. So no preconceived notions about whether or not you like collard greens. Instead, I challenge you to try this recipe out and tell me you aren’t a fan! The recipe is on the blog (link in bio or swipe up in stories). Will you try them? .

Is it just me or is the weekend before the kids go back to school after a break, the absolute busiest?! AD: While it felt like we were go-go-go, we did make some time to visit our local park so Falynn and Iyla could play with their new favorite toy, Stomp Rocket! Have you seen this yet? Swipe to see it in action and check out our stories for even more fun! Stomp Rocket is pretty much the coolest toy and it teaches STEM principles, which is a huge plus! It comes with three different stunt planes designed by aeronautical engineers to do a variety of amazing tricks. The rockets soar up to 400 feet in the air, so it keeps them running after the rockets (amazing exercise)! @originalstomprocket reduces screen time with a toy that’s 100% kid-powered by jumping on the launch pad. The girls love to see who can make it go the highest and the farthest! I love that you can play with it in your backyard but it’s also portable and light enough to take with you. It makes the best gift and is available at your in @target stores and online!

The Family Thrift Store Challenge – 4 Outfits for $24

If You Love It, Share It!

You may remember that last year, we visited a local thrift store and purchased outfits for the entire family for only $20. The girls loved it so much, they’ve been begging us to do it again. So last weekend, I surprised them with a trip to Goodwill! While the prices have changed just a bit since last January, we were still able to dress the entire family for only $24.

The Hunt.

There are positives and negatives when it comes to our local Goodwill. They sort everything by color vs. size, so it takes a really long time to go through everything to find things that will fit you. We did find a few pieces that were brand new, but unfortunately, there were much more pieces with holes or were dirty. We decided that if we do this again, we are going to visit a different store, in a nicer area. We are convinced that we will find better quality that way.

Once we arrived, I presented them all with their challenge… to find an outfit that they love for around $5.  They couldn’t wait to see who could find the best outfit, for the least amount of money.

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

Falynn’s Outfit – Total $1.98

This adorable Cherokee denim vest looks like it had only been worn once and was only $.99!  It can be worn as a top or over a tee or tank. She also chose a fun skirt from Epic Threads which was also $.99.  It’s perfect for my little tomboy because it has attached shorts.

Iyla’s Outfit – Total $6.89

Iyla was on the hunt for something she could wear over the summer. And while white usually gets dingy, this top from On Fire was in great shape and was $4.59. She also found these super soft denim shorts from Garage which were on sale for $2.30.

Lucia’s Dress – Total $5.99

Lucia is my rockstar when it comes to thrift store shopping. By the time she was ready to head to the fitting room, she had a cart full of options. She was excited to find this dress from Forever 21 because she can wear it to the next school dance. We did find a small hole in the front, but she is confident she can fix it. At $5.99, it was definitely a steal. She also got a brand new Holister dress, with the tags still on, for only $7.

Nelson’s Outfit – Total $9.18

Super Dad never has a problem spotting the deals. He looks for brand names and always finds great pieces in the 6 racks of men’s clothing. His Izod top and Adidas khaki shorts were $4.59 each and make a great outfit for Summer.

We are going to make this an annual challenge because they really love the hunt! And of course, since Falynn chose the least expensive outfit, she was able to choose one prize, a book for $.69.

Have you ever shopped in a thrift store? What was your experience?  Would your family enjoy this challenge too?

Shopping for a family on a budget can be fun! We headed to a local thrift store and bought outfits for the entire family for only $24!

    You have got to be kidding! You spent $24 dollars?! You all look adorable and those outfits all look super cute and might I add chic too. All the collections of outfits are affordable.

    First of all, you have a beautiful family! The clothes really look good on them, they don’t even look like you got them at a thrift store. Just gorgeous! I’m going to try and have my family to this too.

    No, I haven’t shopped in a thrift before. Here, it’s usually an open-market, with so many traders laying out their merchandise on the road-side as close to the people as possible.

    There is so much awesome in this post I dont know where to begin! First thrift shopping and teaching kids frugal and reusable! I remember the first time I took my son into a huge thrift store in Erie, his mouth hit the floor and he said this is the biggest indoor yardsale I have ever seen… He was 4 and thought it was like disney! lol lol

    It looks like everyone found a great outfit! Were you able to find one as well? My kids shop at thrift shops regularly and find some amazing deals. While I find some wonderful things for the house, there’s not much at the thrift shop in my size and style.

  • Cindy
    May 30, 2019

    Goodwill collects stuff and sends it all over. Just because it is donated locally does not mean it stays local so another area may not yield better results. You may want to try something like the Salvation Army or Hospice. I believe those donation stay local.

  • Tasheena

    You found some really amazing pieces. This is one of the reasons that I love going thrifting.

  • Catherine
    May 30, 2019

    Oh my gosh I love this! We’ve been working really hard to reduce our consumption and waste, and buying second hand is a great way to do that. I’ve been shopping thrift stores more often and you make a great point that they are perfect for saving money—and treading more lightly on the planet.

  • Tara Pittman

    I do love clothes shopping at thrift stores. Your stores have better prices than mine as my outfit with jeans, a top and a sweater cost me 15.00 but still a great price.

    What great finds! I love thrifting, but I definitely hate it when the thrift stores sort by colors not size. It makes it harder sometimes.
