Hi there! I’m Kristen, the blessed mom of two precious children and wife to an amazing husband. I started this blog to show that a good quality brand doesn’t have to be expensive. I’m an avid seeker of deals, joy and simplicity! I’m also a fan of sharing, so I’m very happy to have you here…
My mom was the one who first introduced me to couponing, showed me how to clip coupons, and paid me for the money I saved. We may have bought things she didn’t really need, but I was making money! After having kids and less time on my hands I am less of a couponer and more of a “save money when you can” online shopper. The online deals nowadays are SPECTACULAR!
What do you splurge on and what do you save on? I get this question a lot, and it’s completely one of those varies-by-every-scenario things. I typically don’t pay full price for anything, but I also buy high quality brands. I may splurge on a pair of wireless headphones for our 3 year old because who doesn’t want wireless headphones to listen to music on the airplane, but then save on a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe we found for $5 at a garage sale. One time my husband and I ate Moe’s for a straight week (one taco each and unlimited chips) strictly because $6 for two people is an unbeatable value! 😉 We certainly love the thrill of getting the best bang for our buck. Of course the words “splurge” and “save” can have wildly different definitions according to the individual. I say SAVE so you can SPLURGE!
I enjoy tweaking recipes and baking anything sweet, drinking a good cup of coffee on the deck, sewing, being crafty or spending a quiet day at home with my family. I like to keep it simple, I am a spur of the moment type girl, I despise clutter, I like to laugh, and most of all, I love God and my family. And that pretty much sums it up.
I truly hope that your experience here is a positive one and that the information you find on the site will save you lots of time and money! New posts are added frequently so check back often: and, with that, I mean hourly! 😉 Many deals sell out very fast.
