Welcome to our new weekly feature – Homemaking on a Budget! As a homemaker who is in charge of purchasing most things for our house (food, household items, appliances, home decor, books, and more) I am always on the look out for ways to stay within my budget – without spending too much of my precious time.
So as we find these deals, freebies, and sales throughout the week, we are going to compile them all here every Friday so you can quickly browse through and find any deals or freebies that are perfect for your household!
Often throughout the week I will post freebies or deals I find on Facebook, but I know that not everyone is on Facebook or you miss the deals as they are posted. So I wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to find the things that will help you stick to your budget within your homemaking. So join me here every Friday for Homemaking on a Budget!

We went by Starbucks yesterday and saw that from May 1 – 10 they are offering half price Frappuccinos from 3-5pm everyday! If you want to splurge on a yummy drink, this is the week to do it!! (No coupon required)
The Kindle Fire HD 7 is on sale right now for only $99!!! We have an old Kindle that we have had for years (and it still runs GREAT) and we love it. It’s so easy and convenient and for $99 would make a great Mother’s Day gift! Check it out HERE.
Two Free Audio Books with Audible.com
Each week my husband and I listen to audio books “together”. He listens to the books during this rather long commute to work and I listen to the books during those odd moments throughout the day (i.e. cleaning, cooking, driving, etc.) Then we get together to talk about the book – it makes reading books actually doable when having young kids!
If you sign up for a FREE trial with Audible.com then you can actually get TWO books for FREE: Try Audible and Get Two Free Audiobooks! They have a ton of great options for audio books. I highly recommend you try out Say Goodbye to Survival Mode and Living Well Spending Less.
But make sure to check out through THIS PAGE to get TWO books for free – You just have to remember to cancel your membership after 30 days (you still get to keep the books you downloaded even if you haven’t listened to them yet).
I have been using the Honest company for almost a year now and I’ve always been very impressed with both their quality and commitment to toxic-free products! I don’t do an order every month, but it’s so nice to have these healthy products delivered right to my door. It makes it so easy that I don’t have to run to Target when I need something (which is getting increasingly hard as my 2 year old twins are always on the go)!!
You can get $10 OFF your first order if you want to try it out! I signed up for my first box when they ran a similar promotion, it was nice to get to try it out at a discounted price.
