Am I the only one disgusted by the whole idea of Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving?
For the past few years, I've listened to stories of people waiting on long lines and camping out to save a hundred dollars on electronics. You see them on the news, right? Reporters interviewing someone standing alone days before a sale even…

When I hear the word Campbell’s my mind goes back to a simpler time. A time when the biggest decision of the day was what type of cereal I should have for breakfast. When my day would consist of play and not coming home till the street light came on, when there were no iPhones, emails to check, or bills to pay. When I hear the word Campbell’s I think of childhood and warm tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches, warm cheesy chicken casseroles, etc. Campbell’s was definitely a…Continue
For a long time I just accepted that the costs of gas were a part of life. I never checked which gas station was cheapest; I always figured that they were pretty much all the same and who cares about a cent or two here and there? When I moved recently, just a couple of towns over (from richy-richy Avon, CT to working-class Bristol); same state, same county even, I couldn’t help but notice that gas is always .20 to .25 cents cheaper across the board. I am still having sticker shock and…Continue

I can’t believe that summer is almost over with and my kids will be heading back to school in less than a month. It seems like this summer has flown by. I have enjoyed having my kids at home with me so that I could spend some extra time with them. A few weeks ago, I noticed that the stores were already stocking the aisles with…Continue

I don't make my local TV news anchor salary anymore, but apparently I'm "worth more" now that I'm a stay at home mom!
Would love your thoughts on today's Mommy Talk Show topic "If Stay at Home Moms Got Paid a Salary..."

I tend to start hobbies that get neglected when life gets in the way. Some of the hobbies I picked up last year were very beneficial to my family and our bank account. Last year I started to coupon. This "hobby" saved my family huge amounts of money that I meant to keep up. As most of my hobbies I keep putting it off and off again until I wasn't sure where to pick up again.

Although this might not sound very succulent, I was once an avid coupon clipper. But, quite frankly, I got tired of having coupons pile up at the bottom of my purse and getting all ripped and soiled and the whole thing just became too much of a hassle.
Now, before you mention that there are accessories to organize coupons, you should know that I also had a coupon folder to help organize but when I changed purses, it did not always find its way into the one I was using. By the time the…Continue

Here's my check list: I'm a stay at home mom, we just moved to a different state and we just bought a house.

I consider myself a pretty savvy shopper. When I am heading to the store, I always first check online for coupons. For instance, when I need to buy dog food at a major pet store, I’ll usually find a printable coupon that saves me at least $10.00 on each purchase. Plus, if I need staples like laundry soap or toilet paper, I always look to see what coupons I can print before I head to the store. With my…Continue

I started a couponing Facebook page on April 25th. After seeing it take off like wild fire, myself and my friend who runs it with me decided to start a blog to correspond with our page. I am BLOWN AWAY! We have had 2556 pageviews to our blog within 9 days! My friend keeps saying that is a crazy-good amount of pageviews in such a short time.
I've tried blogging before and failed miserably. I've tried selling things from Tupperware and Avon and all the other direct sales…Continue
