I wonder how many parts I will end up writing!!! haa haaa!!! :)
Not sure but once a thought comes that stands out in my mind as "Aha! That is the way we do it with big families! :)", then I jot it down.
Here is Part 1
Here is Part 2
So, here we go with "How we do it-Part 3"
Buy in BULK and buy what is ON SALE.
CHALK: We do not have the cute colored chalk that holds 8 chalk. No, we have 52 sticks of colored chalk. Yup! My kids LOVE chalk-you should see all over our driveway, walkway, sidewalk and the road...and even our back deck! It is quite hilarious!!! :)
ART SUPPLIES: 20 glue sticks, 10 paints, 72 pencils, case of printing/copy paper, 20 boxes of crayons, 20 cases of markers, 5 huge piles of construction paper, 20 cent composition books and 1cent staples notebooks. Found LOTS at Walmart and Staples.
I usually go through almost ALL Of this before Christmas so then I ask for arts and crafts supplies as the main need for presents!
CLOTHES FOR MY KIDS: FREE! from generous and awesome friends-we are so thankful!!!
If I cannot find things on sale-then I look for it at the thrift and goodwill stores. If not there, I can usually find it at tag sales! God SO provides, all we need to do is be open to HOW God wants to provide for us!!! :)
THere are so many other things that I know I forgot so I will add them as time permits.
God bless your Sunday,
