What's inside Poppy And Phoebe's Halloween box!?

 It's almost time to get the jumpers out, its almost time to order pumpkin spice beverages, it's almost time to get the autumnal photos at the ready and throw some hocus pocus magic inbetween. My family absolutely love Halloween! Poppy has always been a hallowen fan she loves painting pumpkins, dressing up and she was absolutely over the moon the day she met maleficent at the waterstones enchanted story time last year. Phoebe is only 19 months old but she always picks up the hallowen Usborne  books and loved our annual hallowen party last year.  

A few years ago I posted on here "what's inside Poppy's Easter Basket" it was a huge hit and even now it still gets daily views and with October coming up I thought let's do a hallowen version. Especially as we as parents have no idea if our kids are able to go trick or treating this year, which is a big sadness as Poppy has so much fun filling up her pumpkin bag and this year was suppose to be Phoebe's first time walking it with her (she did last year but in the pram). 

What's inside the box ?

Everything you see is all from last years sale items from Sainsburys. As you know, I bulk buy for the year ahead and buy the majority of items like this around big occasions. So yes... I went shopping in my own halloween box!

Easter goodies for my Toddler 

Always another holiday isn't there. I like to make Poppy a box for each special occasion throughout the year; Christmas eve box, Halloween trick or treat bag and Easter is no exception. This Easter i have gone for the more traditional items like my mum used to get us when we were little; books, stickers, chocolate egg, etc... I've not gone as over the the top as I usually do. We are also buying the stuff we know Poppy is really interested in, her favourite characters and bits she can interact with us on as well

The items in the box are not to have in one go, half of this is being used for her Easter egg hunt in the garden. We have gone for the play/learning items this year, she loves books at the moment and we read to her every night. As she enjoys it so much i decided to get her The Gruffalo £5.99 from Waterstones and the Peter rabbit sticker activity book £2 from the Works.

A pack of Bunny crayons £1 from Poundland, Peppa pig play cards £2 fro…

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter

What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy.


Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc...

Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace

Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc...

Dining room- ( same as above)

Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply so dont throw away b…
