Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

Thrifty Tips for February 21, 2013
FREE MONEY SAVING CLASS If you live in the Quad Cities area and want to learn some serious tips to saving money, sign up for the free Taming the Grocery Budget class which will be held at Trinity Christian School. Practical Saver, Kara Rozendaal knows the ins and outs of saving money. Kara's family spends $250 a month on grocery for her family of FIVE! You can learn so much at the best price...FREE. Sign up at this link. COOLEST THING EVER Now this is not going to be pretty, but I have heard time and time again how you can take green onions (or scallions) and put them in a jar of water and just keep cutting the green part to use in cooking. I tried it out when I could purchase a small bunch of green onions for 50 cents, and I have been able to use the green part (chives?) over and over again. It just keeps growing. Every penny saved helps. :)

I get a lot of magazines through doing reviews and surveys through Rewards Gold. The longest it usually takes me is about 15 minutes. Know a new parent? They can get seven free issues of Parents magazine. A great start for those first time moms and dads. You can also earn lots of rewards from Recycle Bank for learning about greener living, pledging to make greener purchases and more. It is super easy. Sometimes there are lots of points to earn. At the very least you can earn three points a day by reading and pledging to take a green action. You can earn magazine subscriptions, get coupons, gift cards and more.

Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
