How to Get More Use Out of Onesies

OnesiesHappy Friday! For those of you who are reading this blog for the first time, Fashion Frugal Friday-“how to get more use out of onesies,” is where I share with you my bargain finds.

However, this posting is a little different. Let me explain, we’ve been pretty lazy about potty training Little Pumpkin Doodle, but after she had an accident on the sofa (eeeek!) we decided to get it together. So what does a onesie have to do with potty training?

We thought we were doing the right thing by asking LPD if she had to go potty and then encouraging her to use the potty by giving her praise. Even after all the praise, she continued to pee in her pull ups. It was no surprise when I picked her up from daycare last week that she was wearing a different outfit then what I put her in that morning.

The Laundress Delicate Wash Soap-Is it a scam?

laundress2Dry cleaning is one of my least favorite things to pay for, not only do I know it’s bad for my clothing and the environment; it’s so darn expensive. Being that I work in a corporate environment I have a lot of clothing that is dry clean only.

Fashion “Frugal” Friday-Happy Easter!

Happy Friday! This is such a big weekend. We have a lot of fun things planned for Little Pumpkin Doodle. She doesn’t quite understand Easter, but she’s enjoying all the gifts from her wonderful family. Nanna sent LPD a very large box filled with Easter goodies. I’m surprised she’s being so patient and waiting until Daddy gets home to open it. One adorable Easter gfit LPD received is a custom t-shirt from Tante Lisa, by Lima Bean Kids. Since LPD has a slightly unusual name, it’s difficult to find items with her name on it, so it was a nice surprise. [Read more…]
