When it comes to groceries, our home is on a pretty tight budget. That means that buying quality groceries at a good price is usually more important than the convenience of things like grocery delivery services. I loved using Peapod after my son was born, but the groceries came at a higher price than a trip to the grocery store, so I did not continue to use their service. Recently, Amazonfresh moved into our area, and I saw that they were offering $25 off your first order of $100. You all know that I count on Amazon to deliver great prices on my household staples, so I decided to check out this Amazonfresh service as well. Keep reading for my thoughts and Amazonfresh review.

The internet has made so many things in our lives easier. We have the ability to communicate and find information in an instant. We can share our lives with not only our loved ones, but with other people (other moms!) that we have something in common with anywhere in the world. Unfortunately, right along with the great resources, we also have the ability to very easily be unkind to people. The topic of mom shaming is one that many people have very strong feelings about. It’s something that we talk about often. It’s something that we are quick to jump on someone for. It’s something that we do all the time. I think we can all agree that it is something that needs to stop. How do we work together to stop mom shaming?

I’ve seen a meme going around Facebook that says something to the extent of “it’s hard to buy your mom a Christmas gift when she deserves an island, but all you can afford is a candle.” It makes me chuckle every time. My husband and I are usually on tight budget around the holidays, and it’s hard to pick out a gift for your loved ones when you don’t have much to spend. The truth is that the old sentiment “it’s the thought that counts” really does hold true in most cases. The working moms in your life are likely used to putting in a lot of effort without too much fuss or thanks. It’s just what we do. A little bit of pampering and appreciation will go a long way in showing your love. Here are some great affordable gifts for working moms. In fact, this list has 10 ideas of gifts for working moms under $25.
I recently saw a blog post from a very cute, very excited first time mama about what to pack in your hospital bag. I showed the list that she wrote out to my husband, and his reply was “is she going on vacation for two weeks before going home?!” The truth is, you really don’t need much with you at the hospital. In fact, packing less means that you will have less stuff to keep track of, potentially leave behind, and lug around the hospital with you. Between taking care of your new addition and family coming and going, your hospital room may start to feel cluttered and chaotic. The last thing that you want to do is add a mess of personal belongings on top of that. Here is a list of what you really need to take to the hospital with you. Hopefully, it will help you to pack your hospital bag without overpacking.
