All Cooped Up!
Hello there, I recently got into blogging and couponing, so I decided to pair them together. I was a teacher for 6 years and then decided to stay home with my children this past year. It has been a challenging transition becoming a stay at home mom and moving to a small town from a large metropolitan area. Why, you ask? Mainly because I felt and at times still feel like I have no outlet and opportunity to do something meaningful. I know that being the caretaker of my children and nurturing each and every one of their needs should be the most rewarding and fufilling thing in my life, but at times it's very easy to forget that when I am wiping poop and calming down 2 year old tantrums. I woudn't trade it for anything else in the world, but I also feel like I need a lifeline. And that is what SUPER-couponing and blogging have become for me. To top it all off my husband is the only income as a pastor, so, I had to find avenues to save money and cut out access pleasures we couldn't afford. I also feel that I need to be a better steward of our money because it all belongs to God anyway. At times, I do feel like a chicken all cooped up, but I have my vice of super-couponing and how could I not share it with all of you moms and anyone else who would like to save a few dollars, or even a lot more than that, out there. Thanks for reading!
