Low Maintenance Water Bottle Crepes (Perfect for Camping!)

Posted on June 20th, 2017 by Uncategorized

water bottle cheap crepe with sugar and strawberry

I LOVE crepes.

They are just so easy to whip up with kitchen staples you likely already have on hand! I’m about to take the ease one step further, by whipping them up using NO mixing bowl. Yep, you read that right! No mixing bowl needed – the only supplies you’ll use are a clean recycled plastic water bottle, a funnel, a frying pan and a spatula.

If you’re a camper, you’ll want to keep this recipe handy as it would PERFECT for camping! Simply add all the ingredients to the bottle and store in a cooler until breakfast time for super easy, low-maintenance crepes!

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 c. flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil or melted butter
  • Optional: Powdered sugar, Nutella, whipped cream, fruit

Directions:

Place the funnel to the bottle nozzle and start adding the flour, eggs, milk, sugar and butter or oil. Screw the lid back onto the bottle, and shake until the ingredients are well mixed. (This would be a great job for a kiddo to help with!) Butter your frying pan and place on medium heat, then pour enough of the batter to coat the bottom of the pan in a thin layer. Let cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, flipping when it reaches a golden brown color. Put the crepe on a dish and add your choice of toppings (Nutella with lots of berries is my favorite!) fold in half or roll, then top with powdered sugar.

SO simple, and SO yummy.

Enjoy!

9 Tips for Planning a Birthday Party on the Cheap

Posted on June 19th, 2017 by Uncategorized

inexpensive birthday party

If you’ve got a party coming up soon, and you’re worried about pulling it off without breaking the bank, you should know that it is TOTALLY possible to have a super fun an successful party without spending much money at all! Be sure to set a budget ahead of time, and then check out these tips…

1. DECOR
Get creative with finding decorations for your theme. Balloons are fairly inexpensive, and can make a room feel very festive. You can also use decorations from a previous holiday or party, or ask to borrow decorations from a friend or family member. Remember not everything has to be of excellent quality; if your budget is limited there are always good options that don’t break the bank.

2. GUESTS
The amount of money you spend can vary greatly depending on the number of guests. If you do it only for a small group of children your expenses will be much lower and if you consider that there will be adults, obviously the expense will be greater.

3. TIMING
The schedule is very important, plan it after lunch or after dinnertime so you can prepare only snacks, appetizers and other light foods. That way you can leave more free room in your budget for other things.

4. WHERE?
The cheapest option is your house or in the house of a family member or friend – or if weather-permits at an outdoor park. If you choose to rent a place like a club house or a party room do it during the week and at earlier hours, as that will also reduce rental costs.

5. DISPOSABLES
Sure, you could save more money if you use your regular plates and cutlery. But time is money, and spending hours doing the dishes after your event is, in my opinion, not worth the few dollars you can spend on disposable items. Try to buy them at your local dollar store or buy with coupons during a sale to get them for cheap! And don’t throw out the extras, save them for next time (no one is going to care if there are a few Batman plates mixed in at your 4th of July BBQ).

6. FOOD
If you decide to have a lunch or dinner party, make it a potluck! Ask your close family or friends to help you by bringing a favorite dish or drink. That way you aren’t spending as much and you will have a larger variety of foods. Plus, the homemade dishes can be a great conversation-starter!

7. DRINKS
Do not consume soda if you have the option of preparing flavored waters. Aside from being healthier, it can also be less expensive. Also, put names on the cups so the children and adults will keep their own as this limits the amount of orphaned cups that get thrown away.

8. CAKE
Instead of shelling out a fortune on a cake from a bakery, try your hand at making your own! You can snag a box of cake mix for a couple bucks and whip up your own frosting from ingredients in your pantry. A couple dollars worth of sprinkles and fun candles will be all you need to make a cute cake.

9. INVITES
Do not spend money on paper invitations. Instead, use social networks like Facebook to create your own event with all of the details on your party. It’s easier to see who can attend this way, and all without spending a single dollar.

My Favorite Tip for Getting Kids to Do Their Chores

Posted on June 18th, 2017 by Uncategorized

Chore charts with cute stickers are great, and bribery can work wonders, but my all-time favorite tip for getting kids (or husbands) to do chores is using a timer. Now I’m sure you’re wondering how a timer can help you accomplish the impossible, and it’s simple: most people love competition. When you have the clock counting down while they’re doing the dishes, they’re racing against the clock to get everything done before time runs out! Truly, it’s so simple, but so effective.

You’ll have to play around with the timing a bit to see just how long each particular task may take that person, but in no time you’ll have the timer set to 30 minutes and everyone will be quickly getting through their tasks.

Of course, the issue of quality may come up. You’ll want to let everyone know ahead of time that even though they are wanting to get their chores done fast, they need to be done correctly or they’ll have to do them over again – impacting their time greatly. And you may wonder what happens when the time runs out. No, that doesn’t signify that they’re done, everyone keeps going even after time runs out to finish their jobs.

Having the timer running brings in the element of competition, which seems to make everything a bit more fun; even folding laundry! It cuts WAY back on dawdling, and gets everyone through their tasks faster – freeing up lots of time! Even if it’s just me doing some basic tidying up, I always set the timer so I can stay focused.

Give it a try and let me know how it worked for you!
