  1. Go for what you know

    Seeing my first episode of Extreme couponing and I was hooked. I brought all the trappings. The binder, baseball sleeves to keep my coupons in. Tracking sales (or at least trying to). Joining blogs, reward cards and just about anything to stretch a dollar. I also have been tracking how much I am saving. I mean right down to the paper and ink I use to print out my coupons. I must be doing something wrong.

    I have always lived frugal. The majority of my frugal was a necessity. ...

    I have never been a big fan of Thanksgiving and Xmas. It seems like I never had enough money to take advantage of Black Friday, Mudane Monday and any day of the weeks leading up to Xmas. Being single parent and low paying jobs kept me from buying presents for my children and family. During those early years, thank God for my family. They would buy my children presents so that they would have something under the tree. I will have always love them for that. It wasn't until I started selling ...
