how to shop for the FAMILY

Hello Thanksgiving 2016!!

Another year, another thanksgiving, and so many more reasons to be thankful. In January of 2016, we began a journey to seriously convert to the cash only budget/lifestyle. With a family of six, this new lifestyle has been quite the challenge. I can honestly admit that this is the best decision that we have ever made as a family. Becoming a smart shopper has been a fun adventure for this free spirited momma from the meal planning to those strategic clothing purchases. To be honest, I want to dress us all in the latest trends, but I also want to stick with the budget. So, how have I shopped for the family??  Well, Zulily has made this process so much easier on me. Y’all, they offer 40% to 80% off all clothing, shoes and accessories for the entire family!! Zulily sends me emails with all of their latest sales and new arrivals which I love because their items sell out fast due to the great prices. Make sure to sign up for their email alerts.


For under $20, I can purchase an entire outfit from Zulily for each one of my kids.  These hooded tees that the boys are wearing were only $8 each. And, the quality is amazing.
And, for under $30, I was able to find this darlin’ colorblock cape from Zulily too. UMM, yes, please!! Shoes for the hubby for under $25, and cute tunics and cardi’s for my preteen for under $15. For those of you that are on a tighter budget or just like a great deal, Zulily is perfect for you and your entire family.

Don’t forget add your name to their email list HERE.


Gosh, I love my family. Aren’t those little faces just precious?? WE are FAR from perfect, BUT we sure do enjoy life. God has blessed us with bold, unique children and provision beyond comprehension. I’m personally so grateful for the life that He found me fit to possess. By the way, my family rocks. They consistently support this wild, blogging adventure of mine that can be very time consuming. I’m also so thankful for you, all of my friends, followers, and blogger buddies. Your support makes my heart get all warm and fuzzy. I love you all.


My prayer is for you to be overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness because the Lord is good. His love for you holds no boundaries. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, y’all.
