My husband and I rarely get a night out. It’s just our season in life with small kids and trying to stay on a budget so when we do it’s a special occasion. I put together a list of my Top 5 date night essentials you can’t go without! The most important is fresh breath so I headed over to King Soopers this week to pick up the new Extra® 35-stick pack. I bought both the Extra® Gum Spearmint and the Extra® Gum Polar Ice® because you can never have too much gum right?!
I found the gum in the checkout lane at King Soopers. It was easy to spot with the new bigger packs. King Soopers is our Kroger banner store here in Colorado so if you don’t live in Colorado, check out the Kroger store nearest you.
Here are my top 3 things you need on a date night. Sometimes we get to have one last-minute so these are the things you need in our purse at all times! I could go to the gym and my husband can unexpectedly want to go out and if I have these 3 things, I am ready to go!
Below is how I feel when we finally get a date night!
Now that you have your smells covered for your date night, don’t forget you don’t have to spend a lot of money going out on dates. It’s important to keep dating your spouse but we have found creative ways to spend time together on a budget.
Here are a few budget friendly date ideas:
Go see an older movie at the discount theater. In Denver they have a place called the Elvis cinema.
Find a show on Netflix to binge on. I highly recommend you drop everything and start watching The Blacklist. You won’t be able to stop so you have been warned.
Go for a hike! Since we live in Colorado this is easy for us but just even a walk with your honey can be fun.
Save up gift cards from birthdays and Christmas for a free night out!

Someone tell when did I wake up yo a 2-year-old?! It seems like yesterday we were bringing this boy home from the hospital. He is our 4th child and we have been through our fair share of diapers. I can’t believe we are almost done having kids in diapers. Through this last stretch, since I am such a busy mom, I have been buying diapers for Summit at Sam’s club. The last thing I need to worry about is running out of diapers. Not only is it convenient to stock up at Sam’s Club, but they have the Huggies Snug & Dry diapers we use at a fantastic price.
And when you have 4 kids close together like we did, you have to save wherever you can. And if you ever come to Colorado know that just because it’s April doesn’t mean we won’t get snow in Spring… over 30 inches and counting!
When you go to Sam’s club, the diapers are normally near the front of the store near the pharmacy. I found the Huggies Snug and Dry easily and the size we needed which is size 5. Here is a little tip for you if you are buying diapers for a baby shower. With all 4 of our kids we used size 3 for the longest time. So if you want to get someone some diapers and they have a new or young baby, go with that size!
I also want to include my Top 5 picks for a 2 year old’s diaper bag! These are the things we can’t do without when we are out and about.
I am going to leave you with one last tip. We have been trying to potty train my son for a while now and this week he decided he was ready. We have been practicing with him wearing a diaper then some underwear on top. He got used to the underwear and now we are going without a diaper unless it’s nap or bedtime. It’s good to keep some diapers on hand even when you are potty training in case the child can’t stay dry while asleep. But don’t worry they will get there!
If you need to renew of join Sam’s club, just click this link here and get to saving!
And someone please tell this 2-year-old bundle of energy to quit growing!
My daughter just turned 5 and it should be a crime! She is growing up to fast and asked for a bike this birthday. She needed a starter bike that she could easily handle and be able to keep up with her brothers.
So we got this Cruzee bike. It only took a few minutes to put it together and she was ready to ride. I could not believe how light it is. The Cruzee is featherlight, coming in at a 4.2 lbs. As you can see my daughter easily can lift it which makes it easier for her to manuever around. It’s actually the lightest bike in the world. And I like it because it’s easier for me to pack in the car when we want to go to the park.
She previously had a tricycle and struggled to learn how to pedal but with the Cruzee she learned to balance to this bike and pedal with her feet which will help her in the long run when she rides a pedal bike.
Plus I feel like this bike is safer to learn on since it’s low to the ground and she isn’t tettering around on training wheels.
Cruzee bikes are built to last, and have a lifetime warranty which is nice because we will probably pass this bike down to her sibling. I think this is a fantastic bike to learn on and would recommend it!
