It's the final countdown...Christmas is just a few days away, and to be honest, I'm not 100% ready!!
Prepping for this Holiday Season has been a bit challenging because the kids are receiving larger, more pricey gifts which means that there are fewer things for them to open, and honestly makes this momma a bit sad.
I loved the days when I could hit the Dollar Spot at Target or my local Dollar Store and buy a bunch of little, inexpensive things that my kids would love...now their wish lists consist of Apple Airpods, laptops, expensive video games...heck why not just throw a new car in the mix!
So to combat the mommy guilt of not having many gifts to open, I decided to gift them with some things that are free, but that they would be totally stoked to receive...
Coupons to get out of Household Chores....which in their books are priceless because let's be honest, none of them like to do work around the house! (I mean who really does??)
If you too are looking for a few more things to wrap up or toss in their stockings, look no further...I've made some coupons for you too!!

Extra privileges are always a big crowd please in our house too!
- Extra 30 Min Past Bedtime
- Bonus Screen Time

You can even offer a few things that might cost a little money, but would still be special treats for your kids
