Sometimes I sit back and wonder. What the heck?! I clip coupons, talk about frugal living and own a blog that is all about saving money. 8 years ago…I was worry free, thought I owned the world and nothing could go wrong.
Money was an object. What was the point in saving it?? Here is my timeline in a nut shell:
8 years ago: Started college
7 years ago: Had my first child. Living on your own is hard.
6 years ago: almost done!
5 years ago: Graduation! Happy $40,000 debt 🙂
4 years ago: Married 🙂 (into $50,000 of debt)
3 years ago: Husband was laid off, coupons helped us survive. Had my second child
2 years ago: coupons. that was pretty much it 🙂
1 year ago: My passion for saving money = Southern Cali Saver
So here I am. 8 years later–I sit at my kitchen table every day and write about coupons. Talk about stores and learn ways to save. The picture is my coupon corner. It is mainly coupons. Some ads, a couple of newspapers I haven’t gone through. It is our life. Our means of being debt free. 🙂
I hope this inspires you if you are just joining my site. Stick through it. It’s hard to learn and takes sometime. but it is worth it.
