GUEST BLOGGER: Saving Hundreds: The un-crafty birthday

Hello everyone!

My name is Hayley Hayes and I am SO very honored to be guest posting once a month for the next few months here on Mommy on Demand. I am the author of funnymomstories.com – so if you like what you read here be sure to check me out!

One of the things that I pride myself in is the ability to be cheap frugal. Call it a gift. Also call it being poor. Whatever you want to call it is fine with me. Once a month, I’m going to share with you 1 way that your family can save big money. This week, I’d like to introduce you to:

The Un-Crafty Birthday

Alright. If you’re crafty and you know it- good for you. Some of us however, like me- can’t transform an empty cereal box into the preschool version of the Mona Lisa. I just don’t have the vision. So of course all you DIYers out there can fart confetti and have a pinterest penthouse pinboard (say that 3x fast!) of your child’s shabby but not too shabby chic birthday party. I’m not hating. But that’s not me.

If you’re a fellow passenger on the not naturally crafty bus with a limited budget- this is for you. Here’s how I save hundreds without doing napkin origami.

1. Shop your house. And your mama’s house. And your sister’s house.

My daughter’s birthday is coming up in October. Naturally, I feel anxiety to make it local news worthy because I’m a mom in the social media age of comparison. But, as I’ve mentioned, we aren’t exactly raining dolla billz over here. Our goal was to do our daughter’s birthday party on a $100 budget.

My first step was to not spend any money. I shopped my house and my mama’s house. My sister had recently been involved with a bridal shower that had used this wreath. I literally wrapped some of her leftover shower lace around it once and wrote “Happy Birthday Ellie” on an envelope…. and that was free. Here is a list of other things I’ve borrowed from relatives for this party:

I hope my recipes inspire people to get in the kitchen and add a little sweetness to their lives. .
A little about me- I am originally a California girl and I currently  live in Arizona with my husband and two children.  I am fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom, and when I’m not caring for a toddler son and infant daughter, you can find me in the kitchen-of course!

 Hi, I’m Lindsay with Frenchie. I’ve been blogging since March of 2014 and I haven’t looked back. I’m loving this new outlook on life and all the wonderful friends I am making along the way. I blog just about everything from crafting to DIY, decor to crafting and cooking. Creating is my passion and I love sharing it with others. I also have a shop where I sell Wire Headwraps, therefor you get my name Frenchie Wraps. They are stylish and easy to wear without tension on your head. To wear, you just twist like a bread tie! I can’t thank Brittany enough for this opportunity to share my creations with you! XOXO, Lindsay

GUEST BLOGGER: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Hi, Mommy On Demand readers! I’m Allison from Celebrating Sweets, and I’m happy to be guest posting while Brittany welcomes her new baby.

I recently had a baby (our second), so I know that life with little ones can be exciting and exhausting. I want to share a simple recipe with you today – something that busy parents can whip up quickly. These homemade banana chocolate chip muffins are a go-to recipe in my house. They are made in only one bowl and they come together in under 30 minutes. These muffins are moist, sweet, and a little indulgent. They are great for breakfast, snack, or even dessert.
