Taken Care of Review/Giveaway

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be presented with a year membership to "Moms Taken Care Of" to review. Moms Taken Care Of is a one stop place to get menus, grocery lists, activities, crafts, gifts idea's, recipes, decorating idea's and so much more. You can go here to get a idea of some of the things that they do have on this lovely site.

Every week there is new stuff put up on the site. Let me just say there are always such great idea's, which I need. I have never been one to think of an activity or craft to do with my kids. On this site there are all kinds of crafts and activities so it has really helped me a lot.

There are 4 new recipes put on this site each week with step by step instructions on how to make the food and it also has a side included if you need that. The reason there are only 4 a week is because you normally have leftovers and a lot of families eat out or have pizza once a week. Some of the recipes that I have liked a whole lot I have put on recipe cards so I can make them in the future. 

There are 2 sections which I love so much, the Crafts tab and the Activities tab. Let me say that the kids love these sections just as much as I do. We have done quite a bit of things under these tabs. One night we made book marks which looked like mice and they were so cute lol. Another night we made Valentine picture frames which are really really cute.
 As you can see the kids really had a blast making these and, well, we did do a few things different just because I though I had some things I needed but I didn't have them. But, they still turned out so cute. 
 Then we made our Valentine picture frames which the kids had a BLAST with! I would have never thought of putting those valentine heart candies on a picture frame but let me say they turned out great. I am just glad I found a use for those heart candies because no one in our house likes them.

With the crafts and activities there are always step by step instructions and a list of items that you need. So this way you have a picture, instructions, and item list so it is really helpful and easy.

The are also all kinds of  idea's for Celebrations and Gifts. Some of the idea's are for birthdays, Mother's Day, Baby Showers, and Weddings. I have found some really good idea's that I am going to use for future gifts and I think I could actually pull them off even though I am not that crafty of a person.

One thing that I am sure you will love and I love so much, is the shopping list. Everything that is on the site for the week as in recipes, crafts and idea's is all put onto a shopping list. Then the list is broke down into sections like bread, dairy, meat and so on. Also, on the list is items you will need for the activities.These are also printable which is really nice. What I usually do if I already have something is mark it off and just add it with my normal shopping list that I make up every week.

This site has been great in helping me with idea's and we always look forward to the next week to see what is going to be on it. If you want you can go sign up  for either a 1 year membership for $12.95 or a 2 year membership for $21.95. You do have to pay with pay-pal that way all parties are protected.
