As a single mom, or mom on a budget, it can be difficult to find great items for a great price. But it is indeed possible!
The first set of money saving items listed below can be found online. The remaining budget items can be found at the store Five Below (this is not a sponsored promotion). Five Below is such a great store and it’s extremely easy to get off track. There are many times when I would scan my cart before checkout to find so many other $1, $3, $5 items. Who doesn’t like a good deal? I spent over $80 my first visit to Five Below. You’ll be able to find anything from sporting equipment, home decor, even toys for your children.
One awesome thing you can find for under $5 online:

Five Below For Your Kids
2) Egg and Ball Surprise Toys
The 5 Surprise and Pikimi Pop toys are a great gift for children. If you’re a single parent sharing custody of young children help make your child feel special when they come home with a few balloons around the house with a Surprise and Pikimi Pop toys. Doing this may help them to adjust being back home. Sometimes going back and forth between homes can take a toll on children. Having something to distract them and make them feel happy can warm them up to communicating with you more openly. Since some of the Surprise and Pikimi Pop toys do not come assembled this can be a great way for you to spend some quality time together. Be sure to check the age the toy prior to purchase.
Five Below For Your house
3) Feng Shui As a mom you may be very busy. It can be overwhelming and easy to fall behind on things that need to be done around the house. It’s OK! This happens to the best of us. Whenever you find the time, give the house a good cleaning. After cleaning, try to implement some feng shui. If you have never heard of feng shui it means “wind and water”. The aim of feng shui is to ensure that people live in harmony with their surroundings. (Source: academic.mu.edu)
There are plenty of feng shui sites online with tips on what to put in an empty corner or what colors bring out positive energy. Five below has rectangular rugs in many different colors. In the picture this rug has earth colors. The cute pattern can add a great positive and balanced energy to the room.
Five Below For You
Five below offers so many different types of facial masks that are fantastic! Speaking from experience, these face masks are good for people with sensitive skin. So far, I haven’t found one that has broken my face out. One of my very favorite masks is the Charcoal and Sugar mask. It’s great for oily skin. So after you put the kids to bed, put your feet up and relax with one of these face masks to bring out your vibrant and radiant skin.
Five Below For Yoga and Meditation
5) Yoga and Mediation
Not only will you find a variety of yoga mat colors, you’ll find yoga sock, yoga gloves, yoga blocks, and a yoga strap that i used to carry your yoga mat.
For meditation, Five Below offers these candles. You can research chakras to see if it is something you may want to learn more about.
Five Below carries various candles that can be used for meditation exercise also. Candles are a great way to clear your mind if you have a difficult time doing so during meditation. Light a candle and focus only on the flame. It is the same concept as closing your eyes and focusing only on your breathe. When your mind seems to wonder without control, set a timer, sit down for 2-5 minutes and just look at the candle flame. Watch the light and the subtle waves of the flame. Your focus will be on looking at the flame and not the past or future. While looking at the candle flame your focus will not be in the past or future, but the present. Sitting still staring at the flame. Meditation is for clearing your mind and teaching you to live in the present.
I hope that some of these items and tips can help make your life a little bit easier!
You’re a great mom so continue doing the best you can!
