Crib to Toddler Bunk Bed

We converted a crib into a very low toddler bunk bed.  We used a convertible crib and an extra rail from another convertible crib we have. 


We cut the legs down by about 6 inches so the horizontal rail was even with the top of the bottom mattress.    

This is the completed conversion.  The little girls are in the first picture, my tow seven year olds are in the second picture and the last photo is showing the lowness of the top bed.  It is actually lower that the bed we have in the master bedroom.

Super Frugal DIY Give Save Spend System for a Large Family

I wanted to buy the divided banks to set up a Give, Save, Spend system for the kids.  Those banks average about $20 each.  For seven of them, I was looking at big bucks that I did not want to spend.

Instead of purchasing something, I repurposed pencil bags we had on hand.  Using a zigzag stitch, I sewed three sections into each pouch, labeled them with the child's name and Give, Save, Spend.  Then I put them all in a binder and tucked it away above the stove to keep little hands out of binder.

It took about 30 minutes from getting the sewing machine out, until it was put away and I did not have to spend any money.  Win!!!
