PSF-Frugal Izzy


It’s in her genes: Great-grandma is frugal, grandma is frugal and so is mommy.

So, it was only natural that the first time we used the scissors, we practiced with coupons.

She did so well with the scissors, I couldn’t believe it. It only took a couple times of us showing her how to open and close them, and she got it…and yes, she’s a lefty.

If you haven’t left me any blogoversary love, please do so, here.

If you are looking for my giveaway, enter it here (it ends Friday 2/6 at midnight EST).

    Love the intense concentration on her face! And I too was surprised and a little alarmed at how fast my son took to scissors and learned how to use them. But it never occurred to me to use him to cut out coupons (a task I don’t particularly like but he would probably adore). Thanks for the great idea! : )

    And Happy Blogaversary to you too!

    That’s great! I am still having to remind my 5 yr old! 🙂 Gotta start em early on the coupons!! Good stuff! Have a great weekend…

  16. Awww her first cutting experience!! Leave it to a mom/teacher to prepare her child for preschool or kindergarten! You go girl! I would be on the recipient end of Izzy’s cutting skills (when she gets to 1st grade) and not too many mommas let them practice at home judging from the looks of our first art projects every year! Izzy will be a pro when she is in school!!!

  17. Hi! I'm Grace says:

    Caroline has been working with scissors at preschool. We haven’t introduced them at home yet. I foresee her cutting her own hair in the near future. Fun times.

  21. Too cute…Not only is mom frugal, but efficient as well (Izzy helping mommy with a ‘to do’)! Love it. In these times, it is great to be frugal!! I’m trying to start and just started a very tight budget…wish me luck.

  26. That is adorable!

    I love coupons. I saved myself fifty cents on Tide the other day and it was the highlight of my week. (Is that sad??) 🙂

  27. YAY she’s a lefty.. did you know lefty’s are the smartest people.. EVER!! **wink wink** 7 out of 12 Astronauts are left handed!!! Hey.. our president is left handed too…

    Coupons are cool too!!

  28. I always had a shoebox of scrap paper and scissors that the girls could practice cutting anytime. It really helped!

    Coupons, I tried…

  29. haha…YAY for frugal-ness! That is just too funny that you have her cutting out coupons already. 😉
