As a mom who needs to watch her budget, you don’t want to needlessly waste money. You’re probably interested in ways to save and get a bargain, and you might be a big fan of both coupons and the clearance rack. Sometimes, though, things that seem like a great deal can be anything but; not […]
For a while, my kids were really into infomercials. They’d beg for a rotisserie so that we could “set it and forget it,” and they were totally mesmerized by that contraption that holds the toothpaste tube on the wall. We have a couple of “as seen on TV” items, like a cupcake pan that bakes […]
Shopaholic Mommy would like to congratulate all of the 2012 graduates!

After over a decade of mothering, I’ve finally accepted the truth: I’m never going to fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans again. Even if I managed to lose that last 10 lbs of baby fat (nevermind that my baby is almost 9 years old), my hips and thighs have changed since giving birth; Mother Nature has […]
While babies are born all year long, it seems to me like there’s an increase in baby shower invitations through the spring and summer. I’m expecting a new nephew in August and two moms in my circle of friends are expecting little girls the same month, so I’ve been keeping my eyes open for useful […]
I try to avoid shopping with my kids, because I know that they find it boring, unless we’re shopping for toys. Sometimes, though, it’s inevitable. Fortunately for me, my kids are old enough to behave themselves in public, even when they’re bored (well, most of the time). I do remember well, however, the days when […]
Recently, my husband and son went away for a weekend together on a boys’ adventure, leaving me and my daughter at home. We wanted to do something special but didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so we decided to have a girls’ bonding weekend at home. These are fun to do periodically, and […]
