    Default Hello from Florida

    How did you hear about frugal village?
    I found it looking up clotheslines.
    What interests you here?
    Ways to save money
    What will you contribute?
    hmmm...not sure if I can contribute much, but I will learn a ton.
    Do you know any other members here?
    Not yet
    How many kids? Ages?
    3, DS 9, DD 8, DS 5
    Tell us about yourself.
    I live in SW Florida currently, we move every 3-4yrs due to DH Military obligations.
    Do you own any pets?
    2 dogs
    Married or single?
    Married
    Interests and hobbies?
    Started a garden, love going to the beach, chocolate.

    I'm so excited to have found such a site! I was super frugal back when we were on one income. (line dried clothes, clipped coupons, hand washed dishes, bought used vs new) Now that we have three kids, two dogs and I work on commissions, I have fallen off the frugality train. I hope to learn some tips, hear from other's experiences, hop back on the frugal train and mostly learn how to save more money.

    So Hello from Florida!!!

    I saved 100% by buying nothing. Best sale of the year.
