I’m very excited to start this blog. My name is Carol and I live in Northern CA. I’ve been searching blogs myself for almost a year and I’ve wanted to start one myself to help out friends and church members in my area. I didn’t want to overload myself however and do it around the holidays.
I remember my mother using coupons when she did her grocery shopping. She had her little accordion style coupon book with tons of coupons in it. She even had an elastic band around it because it fell apart she used it so much!!
I also remember my mother licking those green stamps and putting them in the books. We even got involved putting those together. We would sit at the table and see how many we could put together and we put together tons of them!! She kept us busy but she needed to because there were five kids.
My mom was pretty frugal and I find myself being very frugal. I often try to find ways to cut my bills, use less water, use less electricity and find coupons wherever and whenever I can. I go down the grocery store aisles looking for the blinkie machines to get coupons because I want to save as much as I can. Doing otherwise seems like a waste. Not just a waste of money but a waste of resources, time and I know I can do better!
There is a lot I want to do with my blog and I continue to update it everyday. If you have any ideas and things you want to be included why don’t you drop me a line and let me know. I really like to help others and would love your input. If you are a blogger let me know how I can improve and I would love to add you to my sidebar if you help me to do it.
I enjoy photography (that is my photo on the header of the blog), reading scriptures, church, animals (mine are the best!), friends, others blogs, reading, family, movies, some science fiction, traveling and lots of other things.
Please have fun surfing my blog!
