How To Please Mum On Mothers Day

Mothers Day is coming up quickly so the family needs to get their heads together and think of some things to make her day very special.

I know my favorite Mothers days were the one where the boys did something special. I loved getting breakfast in bed. I loved that they went and picked some flowers even if they were Bougainvillea and prickly. I loved that they hung around for the day instead of dashing off with their friends. It is really those little things that make the day special. It makes it memorable. We often went for a picnic on the beach, it was one day of the year that they really did make me feel appreciated.

On the other hand sometimes they feel that they need to buy or make something and that is ok too.

Here are some suggestions for inexpensive ideas.

1. Coupon Book;

The kids might like to cut out paper in the shape of coupons and write a promise on them. Example being, I will do the dishes in the evening for a week. I will massage your shoulders for 30 minutes. I will clean your car. Keep my room clean for a week.

These coupons can be made into a booklet type form. Cashed in by Mum at any time.

2. A Wall Hanging.

Make a wall hanging in the shape of a heart. Color it and frame it with sparkly things or whatever you think makes it pretty and say I love you.

3. A Poem.

Hand print on a nice pretty paper a poem to your Mum.  Write something straight from the heart.

4. Get a photo frame.

Find a picture of something you have all done recently and frame it. You can make frames from anything. Cardboard with your drawings on it, like flowers,stick on bubble wrap, sprinkle glitter on cardboard frame. There are many ways to make a picture frame at little or no cost.

6.Take Mum to the Movies

Use Pocket money to take your Mother to the movies. I am sure she will love it. Spoil her with popcorn

7. Magazine subscription

Get a 12 month subscription to her favorite magazine. That gift I find is well received.

Spring in the Air – Tips For Frugal Travel

This is the time of the year that you need to spread your wings and get a little spring in your steps. Winter has gone and now it is time to get some fresh air, go see the new spring growth and feel that warmer air. It’s good for the soul.

It doesn’t have to be a major expense, you can do it on the cheap and have fun at the same time and also do something different. You won’t come home feeling the pinch in your wallet.

1. Take your own basket of food. It is so expensive by the end of the day if you have been buying food from vendors at the fuel station or along the way. Make your favorite sandwiches. We always used to make a bacon and egg pie to take with us. Easy to make and no knives and forks necessary to eat it with. Muffins are a good thing to make. These are all good for lunch picnics

2. Take a thermos of tea or coffee. Take some water from home in bottles or one large container and some plastic cups. If you have to buy any of these, and there is four of you, well, you can kiss $10 goodbye.

3. If you are going away for a few days and don’t have friends to stay with, look up the internet for coupons that will give you a discount on the hotels in the area that you will be staying. Groupon is a discount site for the area you live in. I have also found another good one that is one of my Twitter followers Destination Travel Magazine

4. Coupons for meals is another way to get cheaper meals. Coupon Chief.com now they have coupons for just about everything. If you can’t find anything on that site there are many others.

5. Prioritize what you want to do. If you want to spend extra on nice accommodation then cut back on your meals. Visa Versa scrimp on hotels for extra spending money during the day. Check ahead for ticket specials or if a certain time of the day has cheaper prices. Sometime the morning times are cheaper.

For a whole lot more ideas Simply Fantastic: Living Better On Less it has them all.
