This week I was posted two new posts. Since it is garage sale season, I thought it would be great timing to reshare my best garage sale tips. Over the years we have had several successful garage sales, and in my post I shared what things we worked for us at our sales.
I also shared ten tips throw and amazing party on a budget. My kids loved their birthday parties growing up, and everyone of them was thrown on a limited budget.
If you would like to plan something special for Mother's Day, I have several Mother's Day printables in my Etsy shop. One of the newer items is the printable Mother's Day breakfast menu
Another new item is my printable Mother's Day questionnaire
It is getting late, so I better get this party started. Link up and HAVE FUN!

My favorite tips to throw an amazing party on a budget
I had the opportunity to go through some older posts this morning. Eight years ago this week I wrote a post about my tips on throwing a party on a budget. Since it has been quite awhile, and I still stand behind these tips, I thought it would be a great time to re-share the post, and update it for 2022.
Tip #3 Recycle cardboard and other items, and make your own decorations. It may take a little bit of time, but you can make them for very little money. My kids and their guests have always loved the unique decor we have at our parties. I used old cardboard boxes to make a Triceratops, and a six foot T-Rex for my son's dinosaur party. As you can imagine, the boys were beyond thrilled. I used paper mache to make the Pokeballs at our Pokemon party. All I needed was a few balloons, some old newspaper, and some paint. We had to make our own falling food at our Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs party, since it was such an unique theme. We used cardboard, poster board, and card stock to make the food, and hung them from the ceiling with thread. I recycled a few long boxes to make the life size surf boards that we used at my daughter's Beach Bash Birthday.

I also have a list of other garage sale posts from some of my blogging friends. I am not sure how many them are still active bloggers, but the posts might still be available.
