Eight Frugal Ways for Busy Moms to Relax and Unwind

Eight Frugal Ways for Busy Moms to Relax and Unwind

Sometimes, life just gets hectic. As a busy mom, it might seem that there’s always something standing between you and a few minutes of rest and relaxation. Rather than constantly letting life get in the way, we all need to set aside some time for ourselves in order to stay physically well, mentally alert, and emotionally strong, so check out these eight frugal relaxation ideas for busy moms:

Take a Walk
This one is plain and simple: go out and enjoy nature at your own pace. Whether you go for a short walk around the neighborhood or drive to a more scenic area like a beach or forest, walking is not only good for your physical well-being but also for maintaining peace of mind.

Yoga Class
Many yoga places offer an introductory class for free or a nominal fee, so call around yoga centers and gyms in your area to see what kind of deal you can get. Yoga is an incredibly relaxing activity and has the side benefit of increasing your flexibility and toning your muscles, so what do you have to lose? You may even like it enough to sign up for more classes!

Long, Hot Shower
What better way to unwind than by taking a long shower? Turn on some music, turn down the lights, light up some candles, and buy some sweet-smelling bath soap to really make it a wonderful experience. Taking these showers at the end of a long day and after the kids are in bed is your best bet.

Massage
Massages sound expensive, but it really depends on where you go. Some places offer a low-priced massage for new customers, not because it’s a poor massage, but they’re trying to attract customers! You can also find great deals on massages through daily deals websites like Groupon and Living Social.

Day Spa
Day spas are perfect for busy moms during the school year because you can drop the kids off at school then spend the day relaxing in Jacuzzis, saunas, and mineral baths before picking them up later in the afternoon. You’ll feel refreshed and rejuvenated and ready for whatever life has to offer next. Day spas can be somewhat pricy, depending on where you go, but Korean day spas tend to offer both quality experiences and affordability, so look for these in your area (if not, then scout around for more daily deals).

Go to a Movie
Instead of seeing the latest animated flick with the kids, change it up and go out with your husband or gal pals and see a non-G rated movie. Some movie theaters have discount days (usually Tuesdays and Sundays) for cheaper tickets, or you can catch a matinee showing for a couple dollars off the full admission price. SumoCoupon also might have movie theater coupons or codes to help you save even more on your night at the movies, and if you want to be extra frugal, then skip the concession stand’s overpriced soda and popcorn and bring in some snacks in your purse, if the theater allows it.

Bake Something for Fun
When it comes to cooking, there’s always some kind of urgency attached: hurry up and make dinner for the family, make cupcakes for this or that party, whip up something for the extended family potluck this weekend…If you have a passion for cooking, this pressure can get old pretty quickly so take an hour (or several) one day and just bake something for the fun of it!

Find a New Book
Reading can be an enormously relaxing activity, and mentally stimulating as well. If you have an e-book reader, then check out Amazon’s free Kindle book selection or download free classic novels from Project Gutenberg’s database. Otherwise, popular Kindle books may cost you between $5 and $15 on average. Of course, your local public library is always an option, too.

A Guide to Making the Most Amazing Beef Casserole

A Guide to Making the Most Amazing Beef Casserole

So, you want to make the most amazing beef casserole. I don’t blame you. Now that the colder days and nights are coming, we all want some delicious hearty recipes to warm us up from the inside out. Beef casserole is definitely one of the best dishes for this, but so many people make mistakes when cooking. Here are some great tips to help you make an amazing casserole:

Use Chuck Beef
The only meat you should be using in this beef casserole is chuck beef – full stop! SO many people use whatever beef they like, and this is a massive mistake. They just won’t taste as nice in your casserole as chuck beef. Get the highest quality beef you can afford too, as there will be a huge taste difference.
Sear Your Beef

What, did you just think you’d throw it in there raw? Wrong! You need to sear your beef to get the best flavour possible. You can then scrape all of the yummy brown bits out of the pan and into your casserole to make it even more delicious. You’ll get a yummy, rich flavour. If you’ve been throwing your beef in raw before now, you’ve been missing out.

Don’t Over Thicken Your Stew

Yes, your stew can be too thick. Some people disregard this and thicken their stew up so much that it’s inedible. If you’re using potatoes and starchy vegetables in your stew, it’ll thicken up naturally anyway.
Experiment With Vegetables
Carrots, potatoes, and more carrots are all well and good, but why not experiment with some crazy vegetables that you haven’t used before? Fennel, squash, and turnips can all be great additions to a casserole. Throw in as many as you like to add plenty of nutrients and colour to your stew.
Use as Many Herbs and Spices as You Like

Herbs and spices can take your casserole from zero to hero in a matter of seconds. Salt and pepper goes without saying, but you could even add some chilli to spice it up a little! There are many spices that could give your stew an Indian/Moroccan twist, and the herbs will add loads of flavour and really enhance your stew. Use fresh for the best results.
Cook for 2 – 3 Hours
While many people make the mistake of cooking their stew all day long, you really should only be cooking it for a maximum of 3 hours. If you overcook it, you’ll dry out your delicious beef and your vegetables will be mushy as anything. In fact, I like to wait until 45 minutes towards the end of cooking before putting the veggies in at all. This still gives them a nice bit of crunch and texture.

I hope you find these beef casserole tips helpful. I guarantee the next one you make will be the best you’ve ever tasted! If you’ve tried these tips, leave a comment to let me know what you think of them. See you next time!
