“This issue of my Digest is dedicated to helping every family enjoy this season of picnics and parks, bare feet and simple backyard pleasures. I want to help you build memories this month, not debt and bills.”
I love this quote from the latest issue of Molly’s Digest. Because, really, isn’t that what we all want from this parenting journey—to create memories?
The theme of the July Molly’s Digest is “Summer Fun.” This issue packed with summer (or anytime) fun for kids ideas from A to Z…recipes for oobleck and playdough, crafts, backyard and local fun and some travel ideas.
My favorite feature, though, was “Something Old, Something New.” This article explained how to make daypacks from plastic bags. Sounds tacky, doesn’t it? It’s not. These amazingly cute and colorful and sturdy bags are made by ironing plastic grocery bags together to form a sturdy plastic material. I had no idea you could do that! What a wonderful use of something we all have laying around!
If you’d like to read about these money saving and inexpensive fun tips, Molly’s Digest sells for $4.95 at the Schoolhouse store. Molly’s Membership, which includes the Digest and MORE sells for $3.95 a month. And be sure to check out the Econobusters blog for even more thrifty ideas.
I received a free copy of Molly’s Digest in order to write this review. I am also an affiliate of The Schoolhouse Store.
