I have learned a lot about how to handle kids school projects without buying any new "stuff" this month! This week we had to make a diorama for my 6yr old's school project. The diorama had to show her animal in it's natural habitat. I think we did pretty well without buying a thing! This week we also got a letter home from school asking for 12 plastic eggs filled with candy for the same child's class. I was thinking ahead for once and ordered 30 used plastic eggs off of ebay earlier in the month. I got 30 used eggs for $4.75 and didn't even have to blink an eye when I got the letter. I picked up some lifesavers and got them sent off to the school.
Continuing the crafty vein this week we made this really cute paper organizer which I am in love with! As well as finding ways to recycle some packing peanuts from a package a family member sent for Easter. Who needs to buy craft supplies?!
Total I would have spent this week: $85
Total actually spent: $0 (The plastic Easter Eggs were counted in the totals for our upcoming Easter Post)
