Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
Everyone wants polite kids. Seasoned Moms are sharing essential manners kids should know and great money saving tips on Kids Activities Blog. Get ready for great advice that will keep the household safe and sane and the family budget in check.
Seasoned Moms have compiled a list of goals or manners that we would like to see in our kids. Being thankful by saying please and thank you tops the list. Teach the kids not to interrupt when someone is talking. Patience is the key to that skill.
Teach the kids to keep unpleasant opinions about others to themselves, especially in the grocery store line or at the restaurant. Use words to build people up instead of teasing or making fun of others.
Do not pick the nose in public. If there is something in the mouth or nose, remove it with a napkin. Cover the mouth when sneezing. This simple habit will make a big difference especially when living with many siblings.
Holding the door open for other people and closing the door behind oneself are great manners to have. A very important polite habit to have is putting the electronic device down when someone is talking. Making eye contact and showing the speaker that someone is listening will make everyone happy.
Money saving tips are always a favorite for frugal minded families. Over 50 tips have been compiled from blogging Moms. The list is divided into grocery tips, household tips, personal tips, and entertainment tips.
The grocery tips include hunting for manager special markdowns, planning meatless dinners, baking bread, shopping only from a list, buying generic, using coupons wisely, and eating a small snack before the grocery trips to avoid impulse buys.
The household money saving tips include washing clothes if the load is completely full, using the dryer and the stove to help heat the house in the winter, and using internet sites such as Craigslist to buy furniture. Other great tips include buying paint from the Ooops Counter at Home Depot or Lowe's, checking and combining insurance plans, considering to become a one phone household, and getting a programmable thermostat for the household and water heater.
Personal money saving tips include buying a hair cut kit to cut the kids hair, considering to buy gently used kids clothes, making gifts for holidays and birthdays, and trying home remedies before heading out to the doctor's office. Making baby food is a great and healthy alternative to the pricey baby jars at the grocery store, too.
