Frugality of Time

"Time is money."  

How often have you heard that phrase?  And how true it is.  I'm learning more and  more with the arrival of Baby Girl, just how precious time is.  Time is precious in the matter of keeping the house in order.  Time is precious in the matter of watching my kids grow up.  Time is precious.

So often times multi-tasking becomes my biggest frugal tip.  After a long hard day of being with the kids today, Big Boy splashed in the bath, Baby Girl played in the Exersaucer, and I enjoyed a little pampering with some Mary Kay Satin Lips.  A little time to myself, if only in my head, became my friend.

The kids played and Mommy had a moment to refresh herself.  Although I wasn't saving a lot of money, I was making the most of my time, even if it was for personal reasons.

I'm loving this great tip. So glad you got a few moments to yourself, they can do wonders. I had totally forgotten about Mary Kay satin lips, I love that feeling. I'll have to get me some. Have a great weekend!

I tried to get my sister interested in the drug store game - but with a 4 year old and a 2 month old she said her time was too precious!

spending time with the kids and soft, pampered lips - can't get much better than that! :)
