Home Depot Kid's Workshops - Next up: Tulip Planter Saturday, May 7 @ 9am

Home Depot also has their own version of DIY Kid's Workshops during the first Saturday of each month.  

And just in time for Mother's Day, they are offering a workshop this Saturday, May 7 from 9am - Noon.  Children will be able to build a "Tulip Planter".

The Home Depot's Kids Workshops offer useful projects including the creation of toolboxes, fire trucks and mail organizers, as well as more educational projects, such as a window birdhouse, bughouse or Declaration of Independence frame kit.

The workshops teach children do-it-yourself skills and tool safety, while at the same time helping to instill a sense of accomplishment. Additionally, this fun time allows for quality one-on-one time between adults and children.

In addition to the newly constructed project kit, each child receives a kid-sized orange apron, similar to The Home Depot associates' aprons, and an achievement pin.

Lowe's Build and Grow Workshops - Next up: Heart Flower Vase 5/7

My kids really enjoy the Lowe's Build and Grow Workshops!  This coming Saturday, May 7 @ 10am, they'll be having their next workshop and just in time for Mother's Day!!  This workshop is the "Heart Flower Vase".  It looks super-cute!!!

The next Lowe's Build and Grow Workshop will be Saturday, May 28 where they'll make a "Biplane".

My *HOT* $0.10 Dollar General finds!!!

I don't know if I've ever said just how much I LOVE Dollar General stores, but I do!! 

A few days ago I popped in there to see if they had any of the Nivea body wash in stock and I came across these warm mittens, gloves and knit hats for $0.10 each!!!  And some of the mittens/gloves are 2pks (which means that those were only $0.05 ea!)!!  All in all I walked away with (44) hats and (35) gloves/mittens!!  I used the $0.50 overage for each of the 12 niveas that I bought toward the purchase of the hats and mittens and in total for everything, only paid $1.51 for all that stuff!!  

I absolutely can't WAIT till this winter to be able to donate these items!!
