I'm Back!!

O.K., so I know it has been a while, but I didn't realize how challenging having 3 kids was going to be! I'm not making any promises, but I need to get back on track myself with saving money, so I figured this was going to be the best way. I've had quite a few people ask me for one-on-one and small group couponing lessons, and I am speaking at The Winder MOMS club next month so I thought this would be a good resource for them as well. Feel free to ask any questions and post comments on your quest for frugal living.

Oh, and by the way, you know I had to show off my precious little ones!
