Filling a boot tray with rocks seems rather silly, but it makes muddy boots infinitely more stylish. Or anything wet coming into the house. River rocks are least expensive at the Dollar Store. We have also found the rocks useful for other things like one memorable rock skipping contest. We also used them (scrubbed) as filler to bring a wine demijohn up to the proper lever. Handy things to have around.
Those purple and black shoes are Merrell Pace Gloves. Best shoes ever! They are minimalist runners and I use them daily and cannot say enough about how comfortable and durable and washable! they are.
One other little pinterest handy helper we have used is to get travel soap containers to corral card games. These work perfectly and are hardy for travel and kids.

For my second trip to Mile High this summer, I got a blissful few hours of solitude and a selection of fun finds. A few more wooden hangers for the closet. $2. Some day I will have enough to get rid of the plastic ones.
A dollar fan. How to bring joy to a 6 year old in two seconds flat.
$1 for this set of stamps. Still in the $16 packaging. Endlessly useful for school and creative activities.
Keens, always the keens. Little ones for the little one. $4.
We have been on the lookout for trains. The 4 year old turns five soon and this will be his gift. This box is huge! And very full of train building fun for years to come. $20.
And 3 vintage Fisher Price play stages. I had these. I loved these! $13. The car elevator still goes up and the school bell still rings. Now I’m in the market for the little cars and people.
