Whether you’re a novice chef or a seasoned pro, prepping breakfast, lunch and dinner for your family probably takes a lot of planning — and a lot of supplies! Besides the actual food to cook, why it does always seem like we’re grabbing new things for the kitchen? Pots. Pans. Cookie sheets. General kitchen accouterments really add up! Use this week’s deals to stock up on all the goodies you could ever need to cook fabulous, nutritious and over-the-top meals for your brood. (Hey, no one needs to know if the recipe came off the back of the box.)
A woman can never have too many handbags. A clutch for date night, a tote for the beach, a purse for day-to-day activities…the list goes on. Plus, within each category, you also have to consider your color preferences, decide whether you want to save or splurge, and choose whether you prefer something trendy or classic.
When it comes to purchasing a diaper bag, you’ll have to make the same decisions! But we all know moms are too busy to browse website after website, so we’ve rounded up a few options (most of which come with changing pads!) that will satisfy you no matter your palette, budget, or style. Now get shopping–we even feature an option for your man! Click the images for details.
Conservative with a Twist: This Baby Essentials bag is nice and simple on the outside (love the gold handles!), while the leopard interior (surprise!) adds a wild element. It’s perfect for the mom wants a streamlined style with a little bit of funk. ($25, Target.com)
Pink Lady: What spit-up? This tote by Trend Lab will remind you of your days as a full-time fashionista but is also roomy enough for all of your current essentials ($30, Kmart)
Baby Got Backpack: This Bumble Collection sack can be worn multiple ways, and its cheerful print is great for spring and summer. ($100, Wayfair.com)
Pattern-Friendly Parent: Preppies and design fanatics will love the Greek Key print on this Hoohobbers tote. Bonus: it’s super eye-catching (read: it’s difficult to misplace among your stash of baby gear and dirty clothes!). ($88, Diapers.com)
Messenger and a Bottle: Can’t forget about Dad! He won’t need to send out an SOS when he’s armed with this Diaper Dude bag–its no frills look makes it an excellent choice. ($123, Hayneedle)
If we were able to think ahead past what’s for dinner tonight (hmmm…what is for dinner tonight?), we might consider opening a separate savings account just to save money for all the gifts our kids need to buy for their little friends this year. No matter how old your child is, chances are he or she will be invited to a plethora of birthday parties this year. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. This week’s deals over discounts on great gift ideas for kids from Build-a-Bear Workshop, Personal Creations, Kmart and more.
More shopping. Less guilt. We call that a win-win.
This contest has now ended. Congratulations to our winner, Heather D. of Beavercreek, OR!
