How to have a budget-friendly Christmas Celebration?

Christmas season is not only the busiest but also a month of big purchases. Lalo na maraming sale weekly, we moms, are tempted to visit all those sale events and grab the best buy items.

Especially here in our country, Christmas is celebrated as early as the month of September. November pa lang may Christmas Parties na di ba?

But, Christmas season shouldn’t put us in debt after all the festive celebrations and purchases we had.

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”.

D-I-Y Hand Paint for toddlers

These past few days, I’ve been running out of ideas to keep my little son busy so I can cook or check my email even while he’s awake (if you’re a mompreneur or wahm you know what I mean! ?)

I am also limiting our screen time for not more than two hours a day. (Thankful that we do not have TV & Cable right now) 

I do believe in what Pablo Picasso said That every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

As parents, we have to help them bring out their creativity.

I found this recipe online and revised it a little, experiment with your little one, let him/her be messy, play and create with his/her tiny hands.
