Wordless Wednesday: 10 More (short) Days!

Christa Clips’ advent calendar stops on the 21st!

Our kids love finding a trinket or treat behind the little doors in our Advent Calendar as they countdown to Christmas! I have my own countdown this year and have my eyes on door #22 which marks the Winter Solstice! The sun dipped behind the neighbour’s roof at 3:15 yesterday afternoon and that’s simply not enough sunlight/heat for my drying racks in front of the patio door!

If we can make it to the shortest day of the year on December 21st without a dryer, I say we’ve passed the “dryer-free living” test!

Wordless Wednesday: 7₵ Snack!

Save-at-Home-Mom Christa Clips conducted serious snack research today to help you find these 7₵ snacks. You are welcome.

Why yes, yes I will be sending Hallowe’en treats in school lunchboxes for the next few months. 

These Mini Chewy Bars were in the 50% Hallowe’en clearance today at Walmart:

  • $3.48 for 49 works out to 7₵ each
  • they are exactly half the size of a regular Chewy bar (see research disclaimer below)
  • that’s like buying a regular box for $.84 … unheard of!

I ditched the cardboard boxes and hung our specimens in an easy-access sack for the shorter members of my research team!

*disclaimer: 1.5 chewy bars were … um … injured in the writing of this blog post. I take my role of primary researcher very seriously.
