If you looked at your last 10 Google searches, how many of them were related to money? I remember when I first found out that I was pregnant with C. It was a huge surprise, we were in a new city, didn’t know anyone within a 5-hour radius, and had just started graduate school. My Google searches were frantic ones!

No matter how much I plan, holidays always seem to creep up on me. You’re telling me there’s less than a week left before Valentine’s Day? I had better get shopping! I won’t fool myself into thinking I have time for in-store shopping, so it’s time for online shopping. You all know my affinity for saving money. I simply will not shop online without a sale or a coupon! Groupon Coupons is an exciting new way to save from Groupon. There’s no need to purchase anything – it is a database of over 55,000 FREE coupons from more than 8,000 stores.

“Mommy, let’s play tea pot!” That is C’s way of requesting a tea party. He enjoys pretending to pour tea for Baby Jo and me, serve us cookies or scones, and take turns using the tea pot. I wanted to create a special memory for him, so I decided we would have a tea party with real food and beverages. I needed a great deal on dishwasher detergent. Who has the time to hand wash a bunch of toddler tea party dishes? Not me! I headed to Walmart for apples, crackers and dishwasher detergent for our party.

In case my recent DIY Toothpaste post didn’t tip you off (haha!), I’m very frugal. 😉 We’re a one-income household because I stay home with the kids. That means the budget is tight and I like to keep close tabs on where our money is going. It’s the little things that add up. Hubster and I have a rule that if we want to purchase something over $100, we need to talk to each other about it first. It’s helped keep us both in check by limiting impulse buying. There are some great tips below on how to spend smart. What are some of your tips?
Go ahead and call me crazy, but there are few things that get me more excited than saving loads of money. Children take up very little space themselves but they require an enormous amount of stuff. It’s disproportionate, really. All that stuff costs a small fortune. At first, it was tempting to buy everything brand new so that my child was the first child to have ever touched this book or that blanket. I’ve lived and learned that kids don’t really need brand new stuff. Even used kids items are often like-new because kids outgrow things so quickly! I love to shop consignment now. I can find things for a fraction of the cost – sometimes with the tags still on them. Cha-ching!
