Be crafty. Save some money.

In my previous blog, I've mentioned I like crafting things.  There are a variety of reasons why one should craft. It is fun, it helps you recycle stuff like old clothes, magazines, and junk mail, and it is inexpensive. I won't say it is free, because it isn't. You still need to buy certain supplies. But in the long run, it is indeed cheaper than opting for store-bought items.

Here are a few links to help you get started. If you find anything else that you may want to share, drop me a comment!

Besides from crafts, the Internet is an awesome place to help you get things that you'd normally be costing you an arm and a leg throughout the child's... well... childhood... for free.

"Such as what?" you might ask.

Such as colouring books, and workbooks to help teach your child[ren] how to read and write.  All you need is to find a few minutes to download and print some material that is freely available online, et voila! Not only have you just saved yourself some cash, but you also get a say in what goes in the colouring/exercise book and what doesn't.

Again, here's a few links:

There is also another source I have left untapped that can be a money-saver as well as healthier - home-made weaning food. I believe that deserves a separate blog though, so I'll leave it at that for now.

Here's a few pictures of stuff I have crafted myself:
