Joining in on the #resellersaskids fun. 📸 taken November 1988. I was 20 months old - only a month and a half older than my daughter is now. My mom always put me in frilly dresses and I never left home without a big bow. 🎀

I love saying I live frugally. I get called scourge sometimes or a tight ass but I can handle that. I find it a huge achievement when I've managed to save for something even if it's a terms worth of swimming lessons for the kids or a lump sum towards the bills. Money saving gives me a huge feeling of satisfaction. 
My running a money saving email challenge with all my top tips in. It's free and just what we do as a family. I'll live a link in the bio if anyone is interested and wants to join. Lets all wear our penny-pinching badges with pride!

My new $55 Colette handbag to replace my Louis Vuitton ✨ I was a little upset about this swap however I know it’s not who I am right now in life & a change needed to happen! I love who I am & where I am headed! Along with being a few years old it was very worn & needed some TLC so I sold it whilst it was still worth some good $$ - Perhaps one day when I’m a lawyer I can buy myself another expensive bag (with cash opposed to a credit card 🤦🏼‍♀️) New bag who dis 🙌🏼

Gift-wrapping supplies shouldn’t cost as much as the presents you’re trying to spiff up. 🎁 .
Before you head to the store to buy another roll of wrapping paper, check around the house for these (totally free) items you probably already have on hand:
.
>That paper bag from your last grocery run can be reused as wrapping paper — just add a nice note or stamp on a fun design
>Pull out your stash of newspaper — the comics are cute but any page will do!
>Create a gift card holder out of an empty paper towel or toilet paper tube and decorate with a doodle
.
Sure, it may not be a big-time savings solution, but every penny counts! What clever ideas have you come up with for wrapping while staying true to your frugal ways? 🤔

A handy little trick to keep your bin smelling nice - ours is under the sink & can sometimes smell (even though we take the rubbish out every night & scrub it with demestos 🤦🏼‍♀️) I found this little trick & I am hoping it works! P.S this Ambi Pur is half price at Coles & it smells AMAZING!

It’s been a few months since starting these cash envelopes! I have to say, they drastically help with staying on budget. I find it easier to stay on budget when I have to physically hand the money over vs swiping a card. It’s been hard to remember to use cash & I will “mess up” and use my card once in a while. It’s a learning experience for sure! .

Do you use cash for purchases? Why or why not? 💵

DUPES! My favorite. I like to have about 30 pairs of shoes, but obviously not all of them can be super expensive because I’ve got kids to feed. But instead of ditching my expensive taste, I just try to find items that LOOK like the expensive stuff! First up are these UGG Bethany Tie Chukka Black Suede booties. They retail for $160. But, SWIPE to see a pair that looks super similar and is only $40! They’re not exactly the same but they look so similar they can definitely be interchangeable! Link in my bio for these!

That nap time hustle! 💁🏻‍♀️ I’m at the tail end of a cold. I literally have no voice. BUT I was able to steam and photograph 24 items, actually sit down to eat lunch, shower and blow dry my hair all while my daughter napped. Some days I feel so unaccomplished and then other days I feel like super mom/business owner! 🙌🏻

Dinner meal plan for the week. Excited to say we have everything for the week so no need to go to the store. My son insists on having pizza on Mondays we use to order pizza and it would be around $25-$30 every time but i switched to great value frozen pizza and they are $2.30 ea. 😳 big savings there and he doesn't even complain. For breakfast and lunches we have been taking leftovers, bagels sandwiches. #frugalfinds #frugalcommunity #frugalfood #keepingitrealfrugal #mealplan #budgetcommunity #budgetlife #debtcommunity #debtfreejourney #frugalliving

Today, we counted my sons money! Although some of this is birthday money, I am gobsmacked at how much those little pounds from the toothfairy, my grandma and odd jobs round the house have mounted up. Being a parent, One of my main missions is to ensure my little boy grows up understanding not only the value of money but how to manage it. I really dont want him to make the mistakes I have made and so far, so good. During the summer, there was some football craze going round school, i told my little boy he could take some money out to buy some cards himself but he chose to save it. I feel he is a very visual person and he likes to see the money build up. The amount of times I have seen him run straight in the house and put his money into the piggy bank. Today felt like a huge milestone as its nearly a £100 he has managed to save this year alone and christmas isnt even here yet. Once all the money was counted, we spent time explaining exactly how much this was, I was the immature one who said, you could buy roughly 50 Happy Meals or 100 ice creams!! But he gets the drift. Initially, prior to the debt free journey, I set up a savings account in his name, This is a great idea however I really think its beneficial for him to actively manage his money; save/spend so he can see the impact each action has before we deposit it into the bank. Over the christmas holidays well take a trip to the bank, deposit it and then start from scratch in the new year. It has also been an added bonus as he wants to do the odd job round the house just to get afew extra pennys. Teaching him the value of hardwork, independence and how sacred money is,is my main goal.

As I will be using cash envelopes come the new year, I am implementing a secondary savings option - a simple money tin! This will hold my gold coins, left over cash & fb market place sales 🙌🏼👏🏼✨ I have already put $15 of gold coins that I had laying around - I am so excited & ready for 2019! I have also nearly finished my cash envelope system/ binder - super excited to use it 😍

We found a desk today! Thank you FB marketplace. Only $35 (still a bit too high😂) Anyway, as we put it in, a great debate ensued about the state of chaos that was and is regularly Cate's room.  Her argument- she cannot find things if her room is too clean.  My argument- It ain't finna look like dis.😁 She regularly uses the creative messy people argument.  I somewhat understand this argument because I am somewhat this person.  However, we had to clean it out.  Also, she regularly asks me if I have OCD.  I do not.🤣🤣 #youstillgottacleanthisroomlilgirl #creativemessyfolk  #frugalfinds

Update of our dining room! We had decided back in August to give in and push towards creating a work space instead of a dining room (since we never used it as a dining room!)
.
.
So here we are! Found a desk for myself that fits well! Second pic shows how it can be used multiple ways. Even hopes for later as a hallway table, entryway table, etc! Added an old rug from the old office, and voila! Pretty happy with creating a usable space!
.
.
The final picture shows a look back at when we had just my husband's drafting table in there.
.
.
Now to find some good chairs😂 metal folding chairs will not last forever! .

Look at this absolutely adorable Christmas tree stand my husband found. The graphics are still great and teeny spots of rust but in great shape. It's stinkin' cute and I can't wait to use it! Well done @rustlover13  #reimaginereinventrepurpose

Sunday selfie... the little peanut is 3 weeks old and it’s hard to imagine life without her.  It feels like she has been in our family forever.  Today we wore Christmas dresses even if she didn’t go to church, I wanted to go to spread some Christmas cheer.  If I could I would freeze time right now because I don’t want to forget the season of motherhood I’m in...it’s exhausting and emotionally draining but so great and my kids teach me amazing things everyday!!! .

Time for a power nap.  Even if the girl is rocking nights with a few 3-4 hour stretches I’m still exhausted.  Plus, going to a PTA meeting yesterday and buying ALL the crafts at wood connection today has left my fuel tank on empty. .

Yesterday we had this girls two week appt.  She is growing like a champ up to 8 lbs and 8 Oz...she is gaining about a half a pound per week according to my calculations.  She bled on me after they did the pku test and I was proud of myself for wearing normal clothes even if they are my “fat pants” I’m always exhausted and sometimes I hurt ALL the places still but everyday it gets better and I can’t wait for that magical day when she smiles back at me...that truly is when everything seems better as a new parent 💗 .
Please tell me your best advice in making it through the first month...I love the snuggles but hate waking up multiple times a night and feeling like a zombie mom 24-7🤦‍♀️ TIA

Time to eat my words with our birth story...
.
Let me just preface this that the shortest labor I have had was 12 hours with my 3rd and she was induced.  My body doesn’t dilate until I’m starting contractions.  And the reason I wanted to go natural with this last one was mostly because my legs were numb for at least 12+ hours after I had Eliza I still needed help getting to the bathroom because my legs would buckle... .
Okay fast forward to morning of November 17th, I start having contractions anot super close together just early labor so I went on with my day.  I drove Kayla to her cooking class that is about a 30 minute drive from our house, rested at my parents while she was baking, then picked her up to drive home.  At this point, the contractions were about every 5 minutes, not super strong but consistent.  I called my sister in law to see if her girls could watch my kids and told her we would most likely head to the hospital around 4 pm thinking I would have this baby by 7 or 8 pm.
.
I got home about 1:15 pm and texted my doula to come over.  I rested, ate some lunch, and tried to relax through contractions.  About 2:30, contractions got more intense and closer, I leaned over the ball at home.  My amazing doula got there around 3 pm and helped do some counter pressure on the bottom of my spine and hips.  Then she did a Robozo move of “shaking the apples” to get the baby in a good position so I wasn’t having as much back labor.  About 3:30 I got in the tub and had many moments that I stated “I can’t do this” my body was shaking and it was getting intense.  Bret started loading the car and I got out of the bath to get dressed and then my water broke.  I felt like going #2 and that’s when Meagan said “I need you to do horse lips, we need to go to the hospital now.  We grabbed a towel as a loin clothe and got into the car.  I demanded Christmas music and fm100 was playing “celebrate good times” I basically did horse lips or raspberries the whole time while Bret sped to the hospital and Meagan stroked my hair from the back. .
25 minutes later we got to the hospital (usually takes us 30-35 min) they wheeled me in a wheelchair that had no foot rests...

I’m back... it’s been a whirlwind!!! I find with every good blessing comes the struggles too.  We are so blessed to have a sweet babe in our lives and yet we have endured a round of mastitis, sleepless nights, and the nonsensical crying that comes from just having a baby {every mother understands right?!?}
.
Let’s just say I don’t have my crap together although today I did put on some makeup because I went out in public...most days I’m rocking the sweat pants, preggo shirts, and comfy Christmas socks. .
There have been countless blessings of people coming to visit, dinners brought in, and sweet messages.  Truly, I’m thankful for all the love and support during this transition and I’m grateful for the last few days that I have been able to focus on being there for my kids and my family and keeping this tiny babe alive...that’s no small task 🎄 .

Tuesday’s truths of being a new mom {even the fourth time around} .
1) newborns are a ton of work...figuring out there schedule and preferences can be tough plus other kids adjusting to s new little one in the mix
.
2) I still have tons to learn.  We went to the doctor to clip her tongue tie today plus the lactation lady because I don’t want mastitis this time around.
.
3) Snuggling a newborn never gets old...their soft skin and tiny bodies are calming👶🏻 . 
4) I need more help now then ever.  I know it truly takes a village to raise a child. 🍁I’m thankful for that village... 🍁for a doula that helped me have an amazing and shocking birth experience.  To a mother who raised 7 great kids and her 27th and probably last grandbaby is her namesake.  To my neighbors and friends who have checked up on us, visited, brought food, we sure feel the love during this transition. .
I’m thankful for this new life that is under my care and feel responsible to do better.  I have indulged in too much online social media and it’s claimed precious time away from my family.  So, as I’m adjusting to a new member of my family and trying to get some shuteye the next 10 days, I won’t be here... .
I promise I will be back.  I want to take time to read to my kids and have precious moments with them and especially learn how to bond with this sweet babe of mine.  So if you need me, call me🍁. Happy early Thanksgiving friends 🍁
I’m out 👍 .

🍁 Grateful day 17-18 🍁 
Crazy how fast things can change in 24 hours, from a family of 5 to a family of six... I’m thankful I got my wish of going natural, it was an incredibly different experience then I ever thought including water breaking, horse lips, speedy drive, and we ended with a “stop and drop” either 4 or 6 minutes after we arrived at the hospital, she was in my arms.  We left the house so fast that we didn’t grab my cell phone or any baby stuff...NBD .
Anyways, Amelia Diane Westenskow born 4:42 pm yesterday 11/17/2018 she was 8 lbs and 19.5 inches long.  We are so grateful she is here and made it safe... I’ll share more of her birth story later when I get over the shock!!! .

I’m thankful for great moments!!! Today was Parker’s thanksgiving program and we enjoyed that, a spontaneous lunch with in laws and my husband, and tonight is a choir performance with Kayla.  After today there is really no reason to keep this baby in but I’m so thankful that I have been able to enjoy some sweet moments with my 3 kiddos before another rocks our world 🍁 .
