MommySecrets

Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Tax Free Shopping List

Does your state have a tax-free shopping weekend before each school semester? Tennessee's weekend is coming up - April 25-27, and I've been building my shopping list. I put a post-it note on the calendar page a few months ago, so I could plan ahead.

On my list (in the brainstorming order, so it's very random!):
  • packing tape, scotch tape and masking tape (for home & for leading workshops)
  • elmers glue (crafts/school)
  • socks for my eldest son & me
  • shorts & underwear for my tall & skinny son (he's a size smaller in shorts than he wears for pants - so I've been stockpiling in the wrong size!)
  • envelopes
  • funky shirts for me (I want to look at Forever 21)
  • diapers!!! (i'll try to buy enough for the summer)
  • shoes for DH
  • printer paper (though I can't remember if this counts)
  • bathing suit & little swimmers for my little girl

Am I leaving anything out?

This is really helpful. I've never taken advantage of the tax-free weekend before. I need to do it this year. Thanks for the reminder!

Are diapers exempt, too? I couldn't find that out for sure. If so, I definitely need to stock up!

Yep, diapers are exempt, so I'll be buying for the whole summer. Here's the link:
