About me

Welcome

After much thought I have decided to start my own blog. My hope is to share deals and tips I find here and there with my family,friends, and others who want to save.
In January 2010 I became a stay-at-home mom to my two sons, Casey and Jamie. I had a lot of extra time on my hands, and I also wanted to do something to supplement our family's income. So, I decided to try my hand at couponing. I started out slow, but after reading lots of coupon websites, I started getting pretty good at it.
A couple of months later I found out I was going to have another baby. Uh oh! We really had to cut back on spending. Sawyer (yes another boy!) was born in Febuary 2011, and he was been a blessing to our family. He fit right in like he's always been here.
Now we have a family of five and with couponing our weekly grocery bill runs $50-$60, which also includes not only food, but diapers and health and beauty aids as well. We save an average of 65% on each shopping trip. Basically, that's my story in a nutshell.
Now I come to the reason I have decided to write a blog. After my family and friends started seeing all the money we were able to save they wanted to know how I was doing it. So, I started giving tips and showing a few how to use coupons. (Yes, there is an art to using coupons and I am still learning everyday.) My goal with this blog is to give family and friends more tips and share more good deals.
