It is not always easy to move from Working outside the home to stay at home mom

After I left L'Oreal to stay home with the kids it took me a long time to get my Full Time Mom groove on. There are still days where I feel my groove is long gone. I just found a great book by Kathy Peel... The Family Manager. She gives great tips on everything from how to get the kids to help around the house to natural ways to clean your home.

You Say It's Your Bithday... Well Get Free Food

One way everyone can get FREE food and goods is to have a birthday. Below is a list of places I have signed up to get free food and goods on my birthday and the kids birthdays.

Tip: I always give a fake birth date that is in the month I was born. Clark Howard says never give your real birth date.

Two of my kids have a birthday in the same month so I sign up all three of my kids for birthday clubs  as if there were all born in the same month. That way they all get the treats and goodies at the same time.

Enjoy the FREE food and goods.

How to keep family trips fun this summer

I am so sad after watching Jon and Kate Plus Eight on Monday. I have often thought about how hard it must be to travel with all those kids. Well I have some great tips for traveling this summer with 8 kids or less.

If you have young kids you can play the "Trip Fairy" Game. Every time you stop the car for gas or a rest you place a little treat in your kids car seat. I always buy treats that I need anyway like: sunglasses, gum, candy, chips, Coke, Disney Band-Aids. This makes the kids happy to rush back to the car. So much fun!! Also, if you are going to Disney and don't want to spend all your money in the gift shops.... Tell your kids that the Trip Fairy will leave a special gift for them in your room. You can place a Mickey Mouse T-Shirt that your bought at the Disney Store before you left home and save BIG MONEY.

If you have a DVD player in your car you can rent Redbox movies for the kids. You can return a Redbox anywhere. So you can watch Scooby Doo from Lexington to Nashville and then rent another DVD along the way.

Make Money with Free Mystery Shopping

Make Money with FREE Mystery Shopping

Mystery Shopping is a great way to get out of the house, have some fun shopping at places you might not ordinarily shop or dine, and get paid to do it! This week I've taken my kids to Chic-Fil-A, bought groceries for the week, and paid the cable bill, all with cash earned just by mystery shopping! It requires diligence and attention to detail, but the money is real.

I'm a thrifty person, and was so frustrated to find that the only way, it seemed, to mystery shop, was to pay for the information to get started. It's hard to find good company's to work for that don't charge a fee to get started. To you, my SMASHing friend, I hereby provide an exclusive, valuable, and FREE list of companies that I work for who don't charge a fee, and you can too!
