Learning how to live a frugal lifestyle without missing out on life!

Ok, my first blog! Please remember I am a beginner. I guess what I am going to state here is why I am blogging in the first place. I have just recently entered the wonderful world of coupons! I know, I know, coupons are something you remember your grandma clipping while she sat at her dinning room table and smoked a cigarette (ok, maybe that was just my grandma). But, really, most people compare coupons with grannies. WRONG!! I now compare couponing with extremely intelligent people. How many times have you walked out of your local grocery store with buyers remorse? As the price of products are going up more and more people are starting to wonder how they will survive on their set grocery budgets. How about this, how many times have you looked into your fridge to , instead, have your fridge looking back at you looking as empty as your stomach feels? My family will no longer have that problem. I have not only cut my grocery budget (as if we had one) in at least half, but I have been able to stockpile many items that my family uses on a regular basis. All of this spending less than we used to spend in one shopping trip at times. So from now on I will be posting my deals on here. Enjoy!
I am a wife of 5 years to my wonderful and supportive husband, Jerry, and a stay-at-home mom to my two beautiful little girls, Jillian (2 1/2 yrs.) and Jaylee (1 year). I'm also pregnant with #3!! I recently discovered that I can save my family a lot of money. I guess you could say it has become somewhat of an addiction, but hey, what an addiction to have. No, I am not addicted to spending a bunch of money on designer shoes or bags, I am addicted to saving money. I love the rush of a good deal!
