Freebie Alert: #NationalPamperingDay

We moms, usually put ourselves on the bottom part of the list, guilty ako dyan mommies… Yung tipong willing tayo bumili ng P500 worth na gamit ni baby pero hindi tayo willing bumili ng P200+ for ourselves..

But I’ve noticed that everytime my husband allowed me to have some “me-time” I become more energized and inspired to be a better mom. Minsan we just need to “Pause” and Give ourselves a break.

Gourmet Tuyo Recipe

Being yayaless, bulk cooking helped us a lot, para hindi maubos time namin sa kusina. We are not into canned foods as much as possible, especially that we have a little boy, we became extra mindful sa meal plan namin. Since we do not have a helper nor a yaya, usually graveyard lang kami nakakawork ni husband (when our little guy is asleep). There were nights na nagugutom kami, so aside from sunny side up na egg, we are just happy may bago kaming “to the rescue ulam”.

How to pay off “Credit Card Debt?”

Having a credit card is very easy now a days, there are many sales officer approaching people in the malls and offering a Free umbrella para mag-sign up sa card.

I can’t deny the convenience it brings, imagine makakabili ka using a small plastic card kahit wala kang dalang cash. But again, charged to experience (and to bank interest), even pala almost 3 years na akong good credit card payer, I am still not exempted sa possibility to accumulate credit card debt.

how we paid off our P50,000+ credit card debt (1)

LiceAliz Kilusang Kontra Kuto | “Facts about Head-Lice”

Mommies, isa rin ba kayo sa mga bata noon na kagaya kong nagkaroon ng kuto? Hinding hindi ko makakalimutan ang childhood part ko na iyon.. I remember having a long hair, but due to “Kuto Problems” I was forced to cut my hair short.. kulang nalang kalbuhin ako, shampoo-han ng gas at palagi ako tinatakot na liliparin sa Mt.Makulot. haha!

That’s why I can relate to students who are suffering from head lice-related problems. And the shocking truth is almost one-third of elementary public school students in our country suffer from it.

S&R Imus Sale Top Picks

Tipid Mommies, if you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I love featuring sale events and items, sale for me is a great opportunity to save and to buy the things that we need.

I usually have a list of things that we need that is not urgent. And pumupunta kami sa sale to buy those.

Last Thursday, we went to S&R Imus, I am amazed na walang pila masyado, compared last year na hanggang parking area ang line just to get in.

And when we we’re inside, hindi din gaanong matao. Even sa payment, last year we went at 8am and was able to go home at 7pm, ngayon we went at S&R around 10am and we’re done at 1pm. S&R definitely took notes and improved their system to provide better service for us, customers.

Here’s the best deals that I found mommies for home makers like me:

Cetaphil Lotion at P 499.00 (from P629.00)
