Celebrating my 1st year as a Blogger

Wow! Wow! Wow!

A year has passed and I have been the official blogger of  I have enjoyed sharing my shopping, stories, and experiences with those of you who have followed me.  I look forward to another great money saving year in 2013.  I know that some days I don't get to post as much as I would like, but the complications of being a wife, parenting and teaching sometimes get in the way.  Look for more to come and thanks for allowing me to share parts of my life with you. 

Happy Blogging,
