Just another weblog

Me February 2, 2009

I am a SAHM with 3 children (ages 7,11, 12).  We are lifelong home schoolers.  I have lots of hobbies, but I try to focus on things that can save us money.  I love to crochet, knit, read, walk, garden, and coupon! 

We have been out of debt, except for the house for nearly 3 years now.  It took us 10 years to get the hang of it and get the job done–don’t get discouraged if you’re not there yet.

I am definitely a born saver and learner.  If you have great ideas to share, let me know.

    Dear Kelly, I had the pleasure of witnessing you work your coupon magic at Kroger last week and was astonished (as were the checkout gals) at what we saw– you walking away with a cart full ($100 worth?) for just $10. You were kind enough to give me one of your business cards. I have visited your website a few times over the past week and am excited to get started!

    Wondering if you have ever heard of a Mel’s Mart – her name is Melissa Trail and she advertised some coupons she has for Almond Breeze milk, which we love and googlesearched for coupons. Do you feel it’s safe to buy these coupons online and are there only certain sites you would use for this purpose? I actually did email MM and tell her I would mail her a check. This is all new to me and I still am reluctant to put my credit card out there….

    Green in Franklin,

    I replied directly to Karthi, but thought I would let everyone else know what I had to say. I would simply check eBay ratings carefully before purchasing coupons online. Most of these sites are run by women just like us. Their only interest is in earning a part time income from home, not swindling anyone. However, check their ratings…better safe than sorry.
