It’s May already and I haven’t started sorting out the stuff that I would like to sell at the garage sale here in our neighborhood. This month is the best month to do a garage sale, you know. Besides getting mostly fair weather, lots of people go to a garage sale between April and May than June and July because the latter months are very hot because it’s summer. Even me myself doesn’t like driving around hunting for garage sales in the summer.
Here’s some of the items I need to get rid of:
1. Newborn clothes – just some of them because I will give a few selection to a friend’s upcoming baby girl.
2. Infant clothes – a few of then needs to go because I already save some for my new niece back home.
3. Infant toys – aside from giving a few to my new niece, I am going to sell the rest in the garage sale
4. Women’s shoes – I have a few pairs of shoes that I don’t wear anymore.
5. Women’s clothing – There are some clothes that I don’t wear anymore. I already gave some of them to my younger sisters, cousins, niece, and young girls back home.
6. Kitchen electrics – we have a couple or four electrics we need to get rid of
7. Office equipment and office supplies – well, my hubby have old office equipment that needs to go.
What I need right now is plenty of time to gather them all together and segregate. A week maybe? Wish me luck. As I have lots of stuff to do online and offline, hopefully I can still manage to take care of the things that will help me earn extra money. Moms like me who want to earn extra bucks will always find little ways to make money online or offline. My cousin had already started selling stuff and I also want to join the garage sale in her neighborhood.
And the sweetest thing happens to a woman is when she becomes a mom.
On Saturday my husband, darling daughter, and I went grocery shopping. We were walking to the personal care department when I heard my husband said “Oh no! I might be in trouble.” I didn’t pay attention because I was busy tending to our little girl because she was walking with us too. She doesn’t want to sit in the shopping cart anymore.
The next day Sunday which is Mother’s Day, hubby said he’s going to town and will take our daughter with him. I was busy getting ready for the Mother’s Day BBQ Party in the afternoon. So I did not go with them. When they got back, they brought me this pretty bouquet of roses and a cute greeting card. Oh how sweet! I love them very much.
My husband said he let our daughter pick a greeting card for me. She chose this one and gave to her daddy. What a nice greeting card. And I love it. ‘Made my day!
I hope y’all moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day, too!
Nowadays, limited space is becoming a problem with many of us especially those living in crowded cities where extra rooms, attics and garage are now gone. There are no more extra rooms today, as attics are now lofts as extra bedroom and garage are now laundry area by some people. When students go to college, dormitories nowadays have limited space too. Thus, the need for student storage arises.
Today, we need not to worry if we have less space at home because there are storage companies offering personal storage available for occupancy. You can choose the size of your space. Once you have rented the space and you have the key, keeping your valuables safe at all times is less worry. Most personal storage are walk-in storage and they can be accessible whenever you want. But if you choose a closed storage location, no one is allowed to enter including you. You need not to worry about your valuables because the premises are secured. For students, they can also opt to rent lockers. However, if they wish for a larger space, then a personal storage is ideal.
Do not worry if you fail to choose the right storage size for you because some personal storage companies will allow you to upgrade and downgrade anytime.
To all mother’s in the world, Happy Mother’s Day. You give your children the love that will last forever. You are the light of the home whose brightness brings enlightenment to a troubled heart. You are strong women whose strength can carry tons of burden and yet, you manage to maintain your self-esteem. Though sometimes your mind is about to explode because of life’s challenges but you keep the faith glowing.
A mother’s heart is full of love. A mother’s love is forever.
Special greetings to my Mama, Mindet, Jen, mom-in-law, sis-in-law, Emz, mom bloggers, and Facebook friends moms.

My darling daughter and I went to join a picnic with friends at Bob Woodruff Park in Plano, Texas this afternoon. It was a wonderful breezy sunny day to have a picnic. Though it was a quick invite, we were able to go.
My daughter had a great time at the park. Even before we started eating lunch, the playground caught her attention. She was bugging me about it.
But before we head to the park, we stopped at a grocery store to buy some drinks for everyone. Did I mention that my toddler girl has started to have an appetite with ice cream? And so, I bought a couple of boxes of ice cream pops. She enjoys those things.
We had a great lunch. Thanks to my girl friends who brought Filipino foods to share with. I also packed lunch and snacks for my darling daughter. I always do it whenever we go travel around. She likes snacking. Also, I avoid buying from fast food. I don’t want spend too much. It is better to pack snacks or lunch for your kids wherever you go. You’ll never know what they might ask while you are traveling.
And for the safety of your kids in the park, don’t let them go to the playground by themselves. Keep an eye on them and go with them if they want to play in the playground. Remember that there are also strangers around in the park. So don’t be careless. In warm weather like this, it’s great to put sunscreen on your kids’ and your skin to avoid sunburn. Always let them drink water or their favorite juice for hydration. And keep a hand sanitizer handy in your handbag.
Parks are one of the best places to take your kids for a picnic or for play this season. They love the outdoors as much as we do. It’s great having fun and and bonding with your kids, family, and friends in the parks without spending much money.
