Re: What do you do all day with your kids?

I second the training your kids to play independently. My DS is only 9 months so we are into the exersaucer ($5), toddler bucket swing ($1), board books (25 cents), stacking cups (25 cents), etc. All of which I bought at garage sales for almost nothing.

I love to do garage sales in the spring and summer and have found its a great way to get outdoor toys (well toys and clothes in general) cheep. It also got me out to explore the town when we first moved here. Now I have a group of 2 other mommas who love to go with me because they saw the cool stuff and fun I was having. For starters I got a Fri. paper for garage sale listings and tore the map out from our local phone book (I put this in a plastic page protector). I then map out the Sat. morning sales with strips cut from post it notes so I can plan my trip and save on gas. I have found that labeling the strips with the address, open time, and special interest listings are very helpful.
