To introduce myself, my name is Tracey and I'm mom to 3 sweet little girls, married to one fabulously funny man..and in love with all of them! I began my blog in Jan. 2009 with the challenge to spend only $100 a month on food/household and all our family needs! I just threw a crazy number out there, and it was indeed crazy! I ended up running out of my $1200 yearly budget in June, so I averaged $200 a month, for everything!!! I failed my goal, but succeeded in saving our family A LOT of money! We were spending about 1/3 of what we had spent before and I learned some valuable savings lessons on couponing, setting a budget, cooking from my pantry and so much more! I have continued to challenge our family to be frugal. We now have a $300 monthly budget for all our food, toiletries, household items (like papertowels and cleaners) and other misc. items. It now seems like a HUGE amount of money sometimes! So, come browse my blog, look for a few good deals and party with me by saving some $$$$!! The best way to party in our house! Thanks for coming by, say hello and let me know you were here! I look forward to new bloggy friends! You can check out my HOME Page to scroll through the current coupons, deals, sales, freebies and general fun that I've recently posted.
I will try to keep the deals coming all week for the great Bloggy Party!! So stay tuned!
