Hello! I have been reading on this board for awhile and just realized I hadn't joined. I love reading about your frugal ways...they are really inspiring to me. I have just recently learned the joy in couponing, and learning how to do other frugal things around our house. I am married to a wonderful husband, who was not raised to be frugal, but over the past year, has become to understand. He still thinks I'm crazy sometimes but that is o.k. by me. We have two daughters one is 12 and the other is 8. We grow our own garden, can and preserve what we can, and I am a preschool teacher, and love every minute of it. I'm looking forward to learning a whole lot more from you wonderful frugal people.
