10 Things about Me.




Today, I want to be different. I post deals everyday and sometimes I forget that I need to reassure people that I am a PERSON.. πŸ™‚ Besides, its really fun to get to know people. So, I’m going to tell you a couple of things about myself.

1. I am a mom to three boys (ages 9,5 and 3)
2. All of my boys were born with a 4 in their birthday. (4, 14th and 14th)
3. I am a California native.
4. I have a Psychology degree and went to law school for 1.5 years
5. I can’t stand dirty bathrooms
6. I recently became addicted to our new Shark Vacuum
7. I love the sun
8. I am terrible at math.
9. My favorite color is purple
10. I LOVE washing clothes.. but hate folding them πŸ™‚

I started couponing about 5 years ago. I did it because I was ready to be that stay at home mom that I always dreamed to be. After working at a job that I hated and missing many fun times with my children, I quit my job and became a full-time couponer! Β couponing has allowed me to continue staying home and help stretch my husbands income. and I tell people that I would do it even if I won the lotto one day… (its True!)

  • Lynda

    It’s wonderful to get to know you a little bit better, but I find #8 hard to believe. LOL. I am terrible when it comes to math also.

  • Amani

    We have so much in common. Couponing has also allowed me to continue to stay at home with my boys age 3 and 9. I’m also with you on 10. I wish I could make it to your couponing class in Diamond Bar. Maybe next time. And I love math but can’t add 2+3 when I have my boys in the store with me.

  • Myra

    I find it impossible that a couponer is bad at math. You do it in your sleep! πŸ™‚

  • BarstowMom

    Josie, I love this post. It’s fun to learn a little about everyone especially since I’ve been a follower on this site for over 2 years. I met you once at a coupon class (if you remember). I want to play lol. 3 things about me

    Love, love, love this post! Thanks for sharing your “things” and your beautiful family with us. Have you ever considered changing your “About Me” photo to a more recent pic? Your current hair color just don’t seem to match the old pic! πŸ™‚

    • I have thought about it.. I just became a blonde recently though.. I’m not sure if I love it yet πŸ™‚

  • In love this! Law school? You’re brilliant hands down. You can’t be in law school for 1.5 years unless you got the brains. πŸ˜‰ you help my family daily & it helps that we live in the same area. I recommend socalisaver to everyone here. 3 things bout me :

    2) then gave birth a year later & had 2 more
    3) am a sub teacher in the district here & I luv it though acting is my dream job. haha

    Josie, you are such a beautiful person inside and out. Thank you for sharing a little about yourself. Your family is also beautiful. Enjoy the time with your little ones. They grow up so fast. Mine are 20,16, and 9( the 9yr old keeps me young). I hope to make it to one of the Damond Bar classes and meet you.

    • I do have tattoos but not a sleeve, that is my hubby πŸ™‚

  • Liz

    Thank you so much for this blog Josie. I moved here last year with my partner and have no job. Although he says it is fine that I do not work, being able to coupon has been a detrimental way that I can help with the finances. Thanks to you we average a 40% savings every grocery trip.

  • Carla

  • jessica

    Aww what a beautiful family =) Thank you for everything you do Josie.

  • Irene

    Your family is truly blessed to have you home full time and it looks like you have a loving and caring family. Thanks for all the help you give me to be able to help save on my budget. I help support my 3 kids w/family who are in the military.

  • Mariel

    Cool post! What sets your site from other Q sites is that there less ads and fake deals where the blogger highlights products (that he/she got for free from the manufacturer). Hope that makes sense.

  • Charlotte

    I think we should have some sort of “party” get together with all the fellow couponers out there. We could meet each other, find close-by friends, and put faces to names. Who’s up for hosting several hundred “friends”? πŸ™‚

  • Rose

    I’m glad I’m not the only one terrible at math! I think posting a few things about yourself is a great idea. It allows people to identify with you as well as realize you are a busy mom!

  • Wendy

    Omgsh, beautiful family! Josie, thank you for all of your hard work-I recommend your site to everyone! I have 4 children, a hubby, and a dog πŸ™‚ You help save our family thousands of dollars! It’s great to learn more about you. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚
