There are so many fun things to do in the summer in Traverse City, Michigan. As a Traverse City native, I’ve spent every summer here, and I have a running list of favorite summer-time events and activities we do every year.
Having a (good, worthwhile, successful) garage sale takes a lot of time and planning. For the last several summers, I have hosted at least 1 (and sometimes 2) amazing and crazy successful garage sale each year, and along the way I’ve learned a lot of tips and tricks to having a wildly successful garage sale.
Whether we’re at the beach or in our backyard, my boys spend hours outside everyday during the summer, playing with their favorite outdoor toys. And summer is FINALLY (almost) here! We spend all winter waiting for warm, lazy summer days, so we are planning on spending the entire summer outside, soaking up as much sunshine as we can!
Super hero birthday parties are so much fun for kids of all ages! Here’s how we threw an awesome super hero party on a budget!
Not only can you SAVE tons of money by shopping at garage sales, you can actually MAKE tons of money by shopping at garage sales and turning around and selling popular items for a profit – sometimes a hefty profit!
If you’re ready to start packing up for your next camping trip, here’s a checklist of camping equipment must haves to help make your trip a success!
Trying to get babies, toddlers, and young kids to sleep might be one of the biggest challenges of parenthood – at least it can seem that way! But research is showing more and more how beneficial sleep is to kids and their overall health. If we realized the impact of sleep deprivation on our kids, we would probably be more likely to help them get the rest their bodies need.
Camping gear is one of those things that can make or break a camping trip. It really is the difference between fun time spent outside or a miserable couple of days. And the right camping equipment makes for the best camping trips!
Want some gift ideas for kids that AREN’T toys?? Kids don’t need more toys! They need things that inspire creativity and encourage them to play outside! Here’s a list of my top 7 non-toy gift ideas for kids!
This is the year of less for me – mainly when it comes to things. This comes from a place of wanting to live in a clutter free home and only keep the things we use and love. I have a tendency to hang on to things I don’t use (and/or haven’t used in years) because I might need it. I have also let myself get away with this for way too long because we actually have the space to store a lot of things.
