A Giveaway to Help With Meal Planning!

Apr 8, 2013 by

Here’s a scenario: you go to the grocery store on the weekend, list in hand and buy what you think you need to last until the next weekend. You think cutting coupons sounds divine but have no energy/time/desire to really do that so you just hope some of the items you need are on sale. You think you’ve got meals planned out (or maybe you’re just winging it) and then half way through the week, you’re running out of food to cook. You decide to give your kid(s) PB&J for dinner (’cause you have no idea what else to make) and poke around in the kitchen for something you can eat. The next day you begrudgingly go back to the grocery store, trying to fit it in before you pick up your kid(s) from daycare and spend even more money buying more groceries to last the next few days. On the weekend you vow to not go back to the grocery store during the week because you will have planned everything out perfectly, but you end up repeating this pattern over and over and over.

A Spring-time Giveaway!

Contest is CLOSED

Happy first day of spring CTWM’s readers! I don’t know about you but I am r-e-a-d-y for this new season to start.

To celebrate the arrival of spring, we’re doing a giveaway! I am so excited to feature WreathinkGifting, I think for the third time! I apologize in advance for my excessive use of exclamation marks, I love these wreaths and the shop owner, Andretta, is fabulous. She’s grown her etsy shop so well that she recently hired her first employee – how cool is that? We love hearing about local (Connecticut), mom-owned businesses that are flourishing. Oh, did I mention her wreaths are going to be featured in Better Homes and Gardens Tricks & Treats issue this fall? No, I’m not kidding!!

The winner of this giveaway will get a gift certificate to use that’s good for a 14 inch wreath of their choice. That’s right – if you win, you get to pick whichever wreath you want from her esty shop! You’re welcome.
