Lesson 1339 – Getting ready for Santa series


In an effort to cut back on spending (getting ready for that Dave Ramsey course in January), I’ve told the chicks that I am not going to purchase our annual Playmobile or Lego Advent calendar (and yes, they do make such a thing and yes, they can be quite pricey.)

Instead we are going to be making our very own countdown calendar.

For the month of December, the chicks and I will create our  “Tiny house, big flock – Getting ready for Santa” series.

Who knew not buying an expensive toy could be so much fun?

From our flock to yours, enjoy.


Note: This will be a daily photo series throughout December. I’ll also be adding other written pieces during the month, but if you want to see all the “Getting ready for Santa”photos, the best way would be to sign up to get this blog’s posts by email.




Wendy Thomas writes about the lessons learned while raising children and chickens in New Hampshire. Contact her at Wendy@SimpleThrift.com

Also, join me on Facebook to find out more about the flock (children and chickens) and see some pretty funny chicken jokes, photos of tiny houses, and even a recipe or two.

  1. I applaud you. I really want to cut down on what we buy, right now it’s a bit hard with the two little kids. Also, we bought our lego calendars at least a year ago, if not even older.
