chicks dig coupons is moving!



life has changed things up so i will be moving to a new blog called

simple living everyday

(you can check it out here)

i am in the process of moving some posts to the new blog so i hope to have that completed by the end of the week. :)

i am really excited about the new blog since it's much more me.

while i love coupons and getting great deals i really love the simpler stuff a lot more like recipes, tips, projects, garage sale finds, decorating and just general making stuff, a a bit more about our life...

i am still posting my weekly grocery list with coupon matchups i will not be posting for all the stores.

i want you guys to know it has been a lot of fun and feel free to stop by the new blog!

Tuesday Tip - "CLUTTER"


“Tuesday Tip”

Oh I said it! That dirty little word..."clutter"! 

So I have started asking myself some questions when it comes to our home. But first let me tell you a little bit about our home. We live in a 900 square foot home with a basement. (I know little right? We say "cozy"..LOL) We have 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, eat in kitchen and living room. I bet your wondering who lives here? Husband, me, 2 daughters and 2 labs (outside dogs). While I don't pretend to tell you I have it all together when it comes to keeping up the house I do try and one thing that totally helps me is when I let go of the clutter. Because if we are being totally honest I am domestically challenged. I will find other things to do besides cleaning. But alas I am a busy at home momma so the cleaning is something that's part of the job. But what I do find is that "less is less" and "more is more". The less I have the less cleaning and vice versa the more I have the more I have to clean. So here are a few helpful hints to let get rid of the clutter and in doing that make your home and you a little happier!

1. I don't like to dust so if I don't keep those little knick knacks everywhere I don't have to spend much time dusting...freeing up my time to do other things.
2. I like my itty bitty house and I don't want to be stressed because it packed full so become UNsentimental about things in your home so that you can easily get rid of them. Even if it was a gift if you can't or don't use it then donate it to someone who can get some use from it. Believe me no one will remember...I can't even remember what I bought lil chicks last year for Christmas! 
3. Keep a box labeled "donate" by your door and as you find things that you aren't using then toss them in and when it fills up take it to a donation drop off. And just think that's one whole box of STUFF not cluttering up your home. 
4. Ask yourself what makes you HAPPY? If having that rooster salt and pepper shaker makes you happy then keep it. But if you have 5 different kinds of salt and pepper sets pick out one that you really like and let the rest go.
5. As yourself does your home reflect you and your family? About 4 years ago I was so fed up with having yard sale finds, hand me downs etc...that I literally took everything off the walls and said if I can't have what I want I would rather not have anything! I know a bit dramatic and yes my walls sat empty for a long time but it did encourage me to find our style and surprisingly enough I found it by garage sales and re-doing things I found. 

Our home is a constant work in progress and it will get there someday but by just cleaning out the clutter we have more space, our family is happier, we spend less time looking for things, I spend less time cleaning, and we've really began to understand that having less means having more as a family.

Once again, I just want to say I am in no way an expert just wanted to share with you about my decluttering adventure. 

I wish I had a picture of my kitchen before I will try to find one. But here is how it looks today. Notice I haven't done dishes today! LOL I guess I'm just trying to say how much getting rid of the clutter has helped me especially in a very small house.

"MaKe It MoNdAy KiDs" BIRD FEEDER!



With summer here I want to do some "MaKe It MoNdAy" projects that the kids can do!

Lil chick and I made this fun and thrifty bird feeder yesterday out of a 2-liter coke bottle.


Get an empty 2-liter and rinse it out. Cut off label. Cut a hole below the label line big enough for a bird to get into. Then slice a small hole beneath that for your twig for the bird to use as a perch. Hot glue the twig so it stays in place.


Paint the outside of the bottle any color you have. Lil chick picked out green regular old craft paint. We gave it 2 coats. Then we polka dotted it since we love polka dots in bright colors. 


I had a wooden flower that I painted yellow and wrote with a sharpie "for the birds" and attached it with hot glue. 


We hung our bird feeder with ribbon from our mimosa tree in out front yard. Now we just have to get some birdseed!

This is a fun a quick craft project for the kids. It took about 45 minutes from start to finish. And if you have a grandma or grandpa this would make a cute little summer gift for them.

Helpful Hint: Pour bird seed in through the bird hole.

I found a lot of fun and easy projects on Fave Crafts!

If you have a great idea for a "MaKe It MoNdAy KiDs" email me @ chicksdigcoupons@gmail.com or leave a comment. And if you make this project take a pic and email it I would love to see it!
