The FrugalFinder

I am a proud mom of a 17 yr old very handsome young man, a beautiful blossoming 16 yr old young lady and a precious 6 yr old little girl. We live just outside of Houston, Texas. I used to work in the medical field doing billing and coding. I took some time off for my kids. I've loved it! We've learned to adjust to living from my hubby's income, but it does take creativity, common sense and coupons. I love to save money! The excitement of finding great deals and free stuff is a daily goal. This is so easy to do thanks to all the links posted by so many generous people. I have become inspired to share great deals and information to help others.
