Here is another idea for Mother's day that should not cost a lot in these hard times but should bring joy to any mom that stands on her feet all day.
Anyone that reads my articles on a fairly regular basis know my favorite place to shop is the thrift store. Many things can be bought there in almost new condition and at a fraction of the cost of buying brand new.
So here is a really neat idea for making Mom a happy camper when she comes home after working hard and has sore feet. With a little adult supervision, this could be done by children and would be no problem for a teenager.
Clean Foot soaker with weak solution of bleach and water. Dry thoroughly. Inside of the well put some shredded paper from your shredder and then nestle in your foot supplies along with the certificate for a foot massage. The Pillow is for her to put her feet up and relax or for doing her pedicure. Put every thing into the big cellophane bag. Decorate with bow. Add a card if you wish that you made yourself. Moms love that kind of thing.
Mix together until well mixed, store in a pretty jar.
