More giveaways- Bubbys!
**Jessie over at Bubbys is offering one of her adorable vest and tie shirts! Any little guy would look SO cute in one of these! Here is what she has to say about her shop and raising a baby cheap!
When I was young my mom would make outfits for my brother and me. Of course, at the time I didn't appreciate it. I just wanted to wear what everyone else was wearing. Now, as an adult and a mom, I am amazed at the creativity and time she put into each of those outfits. I'm not so great with necklines and leg holes; but I can applique like no other. So this is my little contribution to the wonderful world of handmade. I believe that handcrafted items make the best gifts, the thought and time that goes into each piece is awesome and beats retail any day! When our son was born in 2008, so was Bubby's. My son is my muse!
Raising baby cheap: I feel like I have become an expert a this. When our son was born, I never expected to become a SAHM. I thought I would take my three months of leave and go right back to my suit wearing, corporate America job. As soon as I saw his little face, that was all out the window. Of course, we were losing a full-time income and had to figure out how to make it work. In the beginning, I would have to say the biggest money saver is...breastfeeding! I know, it's natural and what's best for baby, but it's also free! And formula is so expensive. The second money guzzler...toys. We all want our kids to have everything, I see stuff every time I'm out and want to buy it all. But the truth is, as many toys as my son has, his favorite thing is a empty Huggies box! It provides so much entertainment! We just have to think as creatively as our kids. They see fun in everything. There are so many tutorials on the web from how to make finger puppets to how to build a castle out of cardboard boxes. There are so many ways to save money, and it isn't always easy but seeing my son grow develop beats my old weekly pedicures any day!
