My Top 10 Items You Need for Spring and Summer



1.  Sloggers Women's Premium Clog

I have been on the hunt for an outdoor shoe.  I had a much less nicer pair that sort of resembled this clog for many years.  Then over the winter one shoe disappeared {who knows?}.  So I threw the other one away, only to find that missing one a few months later. Of course.  But it wasn't like they were comfortable anyway.

But these clogs....I'm dreaming about them.  For only $21.97 they are a bargain!  Ideal for gardening, yard work or just slipping on to run out to the garage for something you forgot in your car.

You can purchase them HERE.  Don't you love the lime green color?



I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner, but when buying fresh eggs at the farmer's market or when you are getting them from a friend, why not bring your own container to carry them home in?  I have a feeling farmer's are often searching for styrofoam or cardboard containers to bring their eggs in, so why not bring your own, transfer them into this handy-dandy plastic container and then give them their egg carton back?

Some things are so simple I wished I would have thought of this.  And for as low as $5.50 you can't beat it!

You can purchase one HERE.



This book has been lurking around the web recently and I'm intrigued!  I mean on the cover it is showing you how to turn a watermelon into a keg.  How cool is that?

I certainly do not live on a homestead, but I'd love to read about all of her ideas and who knows maybe tackle a few? And only $18 bucks!

You can purchase it HERE.



Do you garden?  Whether is be floral plants or produce, it's nice to keep your hands covered and not in the muck.  These gloves claim to fit like a second pair of skin and the colors scream spring and summer.

My garden consists of just tomatoes, peppers, jalapenos and herbs {oh trust me, I want so much more....}, but we all know even if you don't have a garden there is still yard work to do. From racking to mowing, these would be perfect!  And how about a 6 packs for $10.97? Can't beat that.

You can buy them HERE.



I really, really, really want to start composting.  I told the husband the other day.  I swear he thinks I'm crazy. Not that he isn't into it {he grew up doing it} but he is a bit overwhelmed with all the changes going on in our life right now {leaving job, having a baby, me staying home, etc.}  He said to wait.

I might do it anyway.

This indoor container is so adorable, I want it even if I don't start composting!  It keeps the smells and stench away until it is full and you can dump it outside.  For only $19.99!

You can get yours HERE.



I love wearing tank tops when the weather starts to get warmer.  You can avoid those lovely short sleeved tank lines too!  These are the perfect, light weight summery tank that comes in a zillion colors, starting at just under $7 each!

Purchase one or many HERE.




The first year we moved to our house, I had a container garden.  It worked pretty darn well!  Some varieties better than others, but none the less pretty good for not being an actual "garden".

Download the Kindle version for all the hot pointers for only $3.87.

You can purchase it HERE.



Us moms can all use a little inspiration during the summer.  Especially me!  I'll be staying home indefinitely pretty soon, and as most moms know the mom your kids have to do to keep them busy, the less fighting and bickering.

These ideas are simple and cheap.  Download today!

You can purchase it HERE.  {Free if you have Amazon Prime!}



There is nothing I've been craving more these past 9 months than an ice cold beer or slushy cocktail.  Judge away if you want, I don't care.  One of my favorite things to do in the summer is have girlfriends over, send the kids away and chat the night away on the back deck with drinks and appetizers in hand.

This little machine would make that evening just perfect!  And only $48.91 with free shipping.  If you like hosting parties, this would be the perfect summer splurge.

You can buy yours HERE.



This sundress comes in four fun colors and would be perfect an outdoor wedding, cocktail party or heck just to wear anytime!  The gathered waist is slimming on any shape and if I'm going to wear a dress in the summer this is the kind I like.

It is on sale RIGHT NOW for $24.95, act fast!

You can purchase one, or all four HERE.

So, what do you think of my Top 10 list?  What is your favorite?  Tell me in the comments.  I hope this brought a smile to your face and maybe just maybe gave you some ideas for your summer plans as well.

This is the BEST time of the year.

Happy Shopping!

  1. Margarita maker!! No judging. While pregnant with last child my sugar ran high so had to watch the carbs and sugar and of course what would I crave snickers bars. Well, a good girlfriend fixed me up. After delivery when she came to visit she brought me a whole jumbo bag of mini snickers.
