My kid is always well dressed but I never spend much on his outfits. (The most I have ever spent was 25$ on a winter coat set… it was regular 99.00- So I figured I would splurge!) Ways to save money on clothes: 1. Hand me downs! (Generally free) 2. kijiji.ca – I’ve come across…

I had purchased this children kitchen set off Kijiji because I saw the potential! My husband thought I was crazy and hoarding more toys… haha… I would never… It lacked character. So after weeks of going over Pinterest I made a plan and told my husband what to do… and like a good man he…

The quality was not superb but I tossed out the rough ones. Using a sharpie I…
