Top 10 Frugal Teachers Gifts

It's that time of year, school will be out soon.  For me and my family we are on a TIGHT budget right now.  We have graduations, birthday's, Mother's Day, Recitals, the list goes on and on for what we are dishing out for this month.  We tend to be frugal when it comes to gifts because we have SO many people to get gifts for.

Mads teacher this year is AWESOME, she had her in 4K also so we have known her for a while now.  She can be hard to buy for though, can't all teachers though?  I mean, if it has an apple on...I am sure that have it...or 10...already.  I have scoured the net (ok, so I scoured Pinterest) and found some GREAT teacher gifts that are super frugal!

1) Quench My Thirst Tumblers!  Lisa, over at Lisa Storms, created a CUTE little printable tag that you place on the straw of a tumbler.  Add some drink packs and you are set!  You can do this for under $5.
 2) Covered Clipboard - I use clipboards all the time and I know a few teacher friends do as well.  Who wouldn't love to have one of these cuties?  Under $10.

3) Ruler Wreath - If I were a teacher, I would want this!  I think it is darling! This can be made for under $10.  From The Polkadot Chair.

4) Caramel Apple Dip and Apple - This is just too cute!  Tie on a plastic knife so the teacher can enjoy during the day. About $8.

5) Snack Survival Kit - This is SO super simple and I bet you have most of the supplies on hand already!  So, this COULD be FREE also!

6) Everything in a Jar - I love these ideas that Tonia at The Gunny Sack shared, SO cute! Under $5!

7) I {heart} You notecards- I think these are SO cute!  Jenny, from bloom, is seriously a genius!  Her parties, design work and recipes are AWESOME!  I already had all the supplies I need for this project so it was absolutely FREE!
 8) DIY Ice Cream in a Jar - Yeah, I thought the same thing.  BUT!  Check it out!  This is totally AWESOME!  You put rock salt in a glass jar, add a bag with some sugar and vanilla powder and stick a few things of liquid creamer inside.  Seriously amazing!  Under $10

9) Cupcakes in a Jar - Who doesn't LOVE a jar!?!  I LOVE surprising my friends with these little puppies in the mail.  I know teachers would LOVE this special treat as well!  About $1-3 per jar.

10) Post-It Holder - This is SO cute and so simple at the same time!  You can easily make this for under $5.

I would LOVE to know what you are doing for your child's teacher this year.

As for us?  Well, we did the tumbler and the notecards.
My precious baby and her FAVORITE teacher!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
