Costco’s Gluten-Free Super Salad

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Our new favorite discovery is Costco’s bagged Sweet Kale mix salad.

Topped with a little rotisserie chicken and we have a new favorite lunch!

boxwood clippings_easy and healthy costco salad

 

It is SUPER for many reasons…

No.1 It contains 7 superfoods, pre-washed and ready to feast on… broccoli, kale, cabbage, and brussels sprouts just to name a few. It also comes with dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and poppyseed dressing (gluten free) all ready to mix in.

No.2 It is delicious!

No.3 It lasts for about a week in the fridge, which is AMAZING! It is also fantastic the day after you’ve mixed in the dressing as it marinades overnight, much like a traditional broccoli salad would.

No.4 It only costs $4.79 for a large bag!

Healthy, delicious, easy and inexpensive meals is what we’re all about, and this passes with flying colors!

Time for a Costco trip!

New Night Stand Lamps. On sale this month at Ikea!

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

For those of you following us on Instagram (see HERE) you may have noticed that I started my bedroom makeover way back in October. It’s taken us longer than expected (we’re only half way into it) but I’m telling myself there is an up side…extra time to mull over details!

One of the little changes I wanted to make was new lamps on our nightstands. The original ones worked perfect, other than the fact they look up way too much space leaving our nightstands constantly looking cluttered and over worked. I knew I wanted something more ‘airy’.

We debated mounting something on the wall (like THIS), but found a similar look with this lamp from Ikea (see HERE) for less than half the price! The better news is that this month they are on sale for only $19.99!

That was all I needed. The thrifty option won, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Offer ends March 3rd so hurry in if you’re interested!

I’m too excited at how the room is turning out. Hopefully full details and reveal soonish :)

We were super stoked to find these totally adorable gift tags at Ikea last week…10 for a buck!

Ikea has really expanded their gift wrapping selection and it is all fantastic! (see HERE).

This is our new favorite holler dollar at Ikea, but we may have momentarily forgotten about those yummy cinamon rolls. What’s your favorite?

Hollar Dollar: Night Light

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

This waking up in the night business with a baby is a whole new ball game for me.

Turn on a lamp and Jane is bright-eyed and bushy tailed…for hours!

Enter…the night light!

boxwood clippings_holler dollar night light

 THIS dollar night light gives us just the amount of light in the nursery to help me avoid injury when I’m walking around like a zombie, and keeps Janey in sleepy mode.

It has the Good Housekeeping seal of approval and mine too!

Hallelujah for The Dollar Tree!

Lovely Black Leggings for $5

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

These days I keep myself pretty low-key until it’s time to leave the door.

It’s kinda a ‘mummy uniform’ and usually entails black leggings and a tee. Simple and comfortable without looking like a Hobo is my goal!

boxwood clippings_$5 leggings

My favorite pair of leggings are actually from Walgreens (link HERE) and are 2 for $10…holler!

For that price it’s way do-able to have several ‘go-to’ pairs for quick changes after these lil’ munchkins get me all messy cakes!

Do you have a go-to look? Do share!

 

Holler Dollar: Fairy Wings

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

I was undecided on the girls’ Halloween costumes this year, but knew I wanted something easy and adorable.

The Dollar Tree came to my rescue again with these fairy wings (link HERE). Matched with clothes they already had: a onesie, cardigan, tutu, leggings and ballet shoes…Elizabeth transformed into one pretty cute fairy!

I think the only thing cuter will be when we double the fun on the actual night. Hannah was asleep for the dress rehearsal!

Holler Dollar: Googly about Googly Eyes!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

There’s something about these little things that make me giddy.

I don’t know what it is, but they are so simple and funny it’s genius.

I thought I’d be fun to dot them around my house for Halloween and bring a little life to everyday objects.

Here’s how it turned out:

Look For Less Pave Link Bracelet

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

I love a good link bracelet and especially love THIS sparkly one.

My experience with pave and costume jewelry has not been good, eventually one the little stones falls out..so I am opting for THIS way less expensive one.

boxwood clippings_pave bracletA whopping $100 difference in price! Wahoo! Loving this look for less!

 

 

The Perfect $10 Blouse

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

For some reason I’m a little embarrassed that I wear black all the time. People always seem to make little comments and challenge me to wear color.

Somehow, despite efforts to branch out, this black beauty arrived on my doorstep this week.

boxwoodclippings_black crepe blouseIt looks pretty simple and basic, but it is perfection in my eyes!

It’s slight boat-neck, loose fit, exposed zipper on the back and lightweight polyester fabric give it a 60’s feel, and I know it is going to be my favorite thing to wear all fall.

And…it was only $10!

Haters will hate, but I still love black!

My first Mommy selfie..uggh. I feel like a poser, but wanted you to see what it looks like in person…right before Jane christened it with spit-up!

Holler Dollar: 4 Baby Items You Should be Buying!

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

There are sooooo many great baby items on the market these days that it’s hard not to get carried away.

These 4 items from the Dollar Tree, (although not all are specifically made for baby) have not only been a relief on the wallet, but have been some of the most used items in our homes this year.

.

1. Mini Tubs are sooo freaking handy dandy!

We’ve used them to store binkies, formula, and now rice cereal. They’re 10 for $1…

Holler!!!

boxwood clippings_for $1 baby  items you should be buying

 

2. Plastic Bin, these have been so great for lots of things, but primarily carrying dirty bottles to and fro, upstairs to down.

In the early days we also kept one in the shower with oxyclean in, whenever the girls had a blowout we’d just pop dirty clothing item in their to soak until the next wash. Worked wonders and very proud to report we have very little stained items. :)

.

3. Diaper Bags (see HERE) we opted for these instead of a diaper genie type because we have “diaper changing stations” all over the house. Simply pop the diaper in and tie it up. They actually work pretty well for holding in the stench!

boxwood clippings_for $1 baby  items you should be buying.

4. Mesh Wastebaskets (see HERE) these are perfect for holding all those bagged diapers, and easy to empty every day or so.

So there you have it! Our very thrifty and handy baby finds.

Thrifty Black & White finds at Ikea!

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Browsing though my pinterest page yesterday I noticed that most of my favorite spaces are black and white. (This wasn’t really that much of a shock…just a realization!) This most classic combination is timeless, chic, modern and all that we love.

Here are some amazing (and cheap) pieces I found at Ikea.

1. Dying over this light (see HERE). Replacing the builder grade lighting has always been on our list, and room by room we’re getting there. I just need to find the perfect spot for this.

2. These lamps are PERFECTION (see HERE), and will be a contender for above our nightstands when we re-do our master this Fall…yay!!!

3. These place mats (see HERE) were added to our home the week the twins began solid food. Too cute and handy and only $1.49! Holler!!!

4. Lack tables are a must in any home. Ever so versatile and handy for temporary arrangements like house guests or parties. They’re on sale this month with your Ikea family card for only $4.99!!!!!!! Time to stock up. I’m getting 4! (see HERE.)

5-8. Beautiful cushion covers to ump up the contrast in any room. I’ll be getting some for the Master. Such a great deal from $4.99-$14.99)

Holler Dollar: Staples Notebooks

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

I was checking out at Staples the other day when I spied these adorable 2-pack of notebooks for $1.

boxwood clippings_gold and tan notebooks

Aren’t they just the sweetest?!

They have many designs and we thought they’d be the perfect little notebook to keep lists in your purse or to give as a gift.

Love cute and little unexpected finds!
