Donate Gently Used Clothes to Schoola | @schoola #clothes4school #ad

Sponsored Post

Girls Closet via www.toddlertrails.comMy kids are finally starting to hit some serious growth spurts. With that, they’re finally growing out of the toddler sizes and into big kids clothes. The predicament, closets and drawers full of clothes that don’t fit.  While I’ve used consignment sales in the past, I’ve decided that donating seems to be the best fit for us. There are organizations like Schoola that consign gently used clothing at amazing prices. Specific schools in the program receive the proceeds from each item sold, money that funds programs so critical to the success of our kids.  Continue reading

While preparing for our 2014 road trip, I had decided to make larger portions of food so that I could intentionally freeze leftovers.  By the time we packed up the Willey Mobile for our 2 week trip, we had several meals already set, but I was looking for other options for quick, convenient and tasty meals the family would love.  Thanks to our friends at Sous Kitchen, we had the final pre-packaged meals ready to go.

Touring Salt Lake City and Temple Square | #WilleyMobileAdventures #RoadTrip2014

Selfie at The Grand Canyon | #WilleyMobileAdventures #RoadTrip2014

With the kids being 5 and 6, one of the stops we’re hoping they will remember, even if only through pictures is the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
