Mothers always wear numerous hats; the many roles a mother may play on a given day include teacher, nurse, cook, librarian, maid, etc. With that much work to do, a mother should be compensated well. However, that is not always the case. If only hugs, kisses and love could pay for a new wardrobe for moms.
Looking stylish is certainly not the first thing on a mother’s ever-buzzing mind, especially when finding time to just take a shower, get dependent little ones ready, attend children’s extracurricular events, and prepare a meal, let alone shop and maintain a chic wardrobe, seem unattainable. Keep in mind that taking the time to look nice boosts one’s self-confidence, which the kids pick up on and emulate. We want children to see a mother in control of all areas of her life, including her appearance. Don’t feel selfish for spending a little time and a little money to update your look. Don’t lose your identity because you are a mother of little ones, or big ones off at an expensive college that mom and dad are forking over a pretty penny to pay for. Remember that you deserve new things once in awhile too! Those old t-shirts and holey jeans from your college days can be saved for work clothes, but regain your dignity and look the part of a lovely momma! It may seem like only a superhuman mother could look stylish on top of accomplishing her many duties as a mother, but it is possible, and here is how!
Searching online for coupons and promo codes before clicking “confirm” on a purchase is imperative. Why pay full price when your friend Mr. Google can jump in and save some of your hard-earned money? Signing up for store emails and text messages can give you access to savings you wouldn’t otherwise know about. If you have time while baby is napping or after you tuck the kids into bed, seek out those deals! Moneysavingmom.com is one of many websites for moms, by moms, that offers you the scoop on great deals. American Eagle Outfitters offer coupons and Forever 21 are a few quality stores where you can net some steep savings using discount codes!
Not to mention, you’ll be the trendiest mom around, and the most financially savvy! A mother’s time is precious, and rarely her own, such is the case for those ranging from stay-at-home mother to full time working mother. That’s where online shopping takes center stage as a real time saver for all of you hard-working mommas!
Don’t be afraid to put in a little, or a lot, of elbow grease to reap some serious savings. If you find some statement pieces at beautiful prices, you’ll get compliments on your looks and your husband will give you compliments on your budgeting. It’s a win-win! It’s time for you to look the part of teacher, nurse, cook, librarian, maid, etc., but without the scrubs and chef hat. Find those deals on designer duds and don’t feel guilty or penniless! You are worth it. Now go find your new look and surprise your family with how put-together you can look beyond those yoga pants!

After my first born, I swore I was going to do better, now that I knew better. I was going to make her baby food myself, not use so many ‘chemically engineered’ items on her, and cloth diaper instead of using the disposables.
Well, I did well with the first two. I made all her food, I used more natural products with her, but the cloth diapering, I just couldn’t do. I heard so many great things about them, and I still do, but for me, it just wasn’t something I was going to grin and bear, I mean there was work to it, and lets be honest, I was tired, and well, LAZY! Disposables were so much easier! Less cost effective, but you pay for convience. If I was able to find someone who would do the laundry for me and change her diapers, lol I probably would have found convient, easy to use cloth diapers that I would have used on her, but alas, I’m the lazy mom who really wanted the easy way out.
Cloth Diapering is great, if you can do it, and if you aren’t lazy like me. I commend those who do! How DO you do it though? The laundry, the getting rid of the ‘mess’? I always wondered how mom’s were able to do it, with a smile and telling everyone “We Cloth Diaper”. So many questions, so many unanswered questions.
As my girls are older now, I don’t have to worry about that, but I still wanted to give you all a little advice, and/or laugh, I mean you can find pleanty of places where you can find reasons you should cloth diaper, one of my favorite reads is the Lazy Mom’s Guide to Cloth Diapering cause let me tell you, that is what I was, lazy mom, I wish I found that article sooner!
My Reasons Not To Cloth Diaper My Kids….
– White Diapers match EVERYTHING!
– More garbage provides jobs and something to do for the garbage man! We don’t want them out of a job!
– I like to shop, having to go to the store for diapers so many times, gives me an excuse to find other things I want to buy.
– Laundry sucks, I’m already behind, my kid will have a bare butt if I have to do so much laundry
– Infant Skinny Jeans!!
– Leaving behind a legacy! That’s right, my kids DNA is in those landfills!
Ok, so my reasoning isn’t really advice, it’s just a means for a laugh. Check out some of these new moms who decided to switch from disposables to cloth diapering, see what they thought and how they did.
Seriously, for those who do cloth diaper, I bow to you cause I just couldn’t do it. I’d like to know how you do/did though, what’s your advice to new moms who are thinking about cloth diapering?

It’s fall, that means some new shows are coming our way to watch while we’re indoors, cuddled up and staying warm. There’s a lot of shows to watch this coming fall and winter season, but one not to miss, at least in our household will is Timeless.
NBC brings us this great new series called Timeless which airs Monday’s at 10pm ET (9 CT) and is about 3 people who travel back in time in order to keep a terrorist from ruining history. Eric Kripke (Revoultion, Supernatural) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield) as well as the producers of The Blacklist bring you this action adventure series.
A mysterious criminal steals a state of the art time machine and wants to destroy America as we know it today, by changing the past. A team of people that include a scientist, soldier and history professor use the prototype of the machine in order to travel back in time to critical events. The issue is they cannot affect the past themselves so they must stay ahead of the terrorist. The cast includes Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Visnjic, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffery and Claudia Doumit.
The show is actually really good, at least the pilot episode that I was able to see was. Very interesting! If you’d like to see a clip of the show check it out below:
Monday’s episode is titled “The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln”. Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus chase the terrorist to the night of Lincoln’s assassination, where they’re horrified to learn that Flynn’s linked up with history’s most notorious assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Putting aside a tragedy of her own, Lucy speculates that Flynn intends to send the fragile nation into chaos by making a bad thing worse, and a debate rages among the team: should they alter history if it means changing it for the better? Tune in this Monday October 10th at 10/9c on NBC!
I hope this show sticks around for a long while, it’s a great, fun, family show that all can enjoy!
