Life of Nanny: Frugal Rainy Day Activities

I'm a nanny and from time to time I am challenged with entertaining kids without overloading them with tv or kindle games. Recently I had the task of making a 9 hour shift pass by indoors on a rainy day with an 8 year old. I panicked at first but my pennydonna senses kicked in & I was able to come up with some fun activities that were cheap to do! 

Crafts: FREE
Depending on how old the child is, choosing a good craft can give you at least a 30 minute activity. I know boys generally aren't the crafty kind but if you make it fun, I believe all kids can enjoy themselves with this.

Mommy's Corner: Frugal Family Meals

Hey! My name is Jessica! I'm a PennyDonna and a married mother of four children. Feeding my family on a budget is a must! But our meals don’t have to be boring or unappetizing!  In this post I will share with you a meal that my family loves.







Breaded Chicken Alfredo is a dish that seems difficult and fancy if you’re making it from scratch, but it isn’t! I start by making my list. You are going to need:



3 Chicken Breasts
1 Pint of Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Cup of Italian Bread Crumbs
2 tbsp of butter
1/4 cup of milk
