I am Nancy, a stay-at-home mom to two young children. Since leaving my job as a teacher to stay home and raise our little ones, saving money in creative ways has become a mission and a lifestyle. I am the first to admit that pinching pennies used to feel limiting, but I have come to thoroughly enjoy our frugal ways. I view stretching our dollars as an integral part of my job as a wife, mother, and homemaker (and I am not at all bothered by the somewhat antiquated term homemaker, in case you were wondering)!

I hope that this blog can help other families learn how to make it work on one salary. I also hope it helps others see that saving money can be empowering and fun.

Stay tuned and check back often for money-saving tips that have worked for our little family.
