So I thought I would share a little bit about myself, which is really hard since I do not like to talk about my self at all. First I am a stay at home mom of 3 little girls who have tons of energy and make me laugh every day. My husband is my best friend. He is some one that I can count on no matter what and always knows just the right thing to say when I am feeling sad. We have been through a lot and I guess we will continue to go through many crazy things. That is just life!!
I love spending time with my family, playing softball and volleyball, going to the movies with my husband (which does not happen as often since babysitters are few and far between). I love shopping, talking to friends, using coupons of course and just laughing. Living near Cincinnati Ohio, there are lots of things to do; Kings Island, Reds, Bengals, Cincinnati Zoo and so much more!
I started really couponing in 2008, after we had our youngest daughter. I was watching a lady on TV and she was talking about how she was getting most of her groceries and health & beauty items really cheap and even FREE in some cases. I had always used coupons, but not to this extent. So I started researching online how I could do this too. With me being a stay at home mom and having a newborn, we were spending a lot and not saving much. So after about 3 weeks of searching and learning, I started my coupon adventure. It took about 3 months to start getting a real feel for the coupon world and to start getting FREE items and start my stockpile.
I then decided in January of 2009 to start sharing my shopping trips with friends and family in a blog. It also gave me an outlet to write and have a little time for myself. I love sharing all the great savings I get and all of the saving tips I have learned. I also love getting feedback on what others are doing to save money and how much they save at the grocery. So I hope you enjoy all the things I share and have learned over the past 2 years and be able to save a ton at the grocery!!!
