Hello everyone, I'm from a small town in Oklahoma and have always been a penny pincher. My husband recently changed jobs and took a pay cut for now, but his quality of life (actually both of ours) will be soo much better. Anyway, we were barely scraping by before and now it's even tighter. I have had lots of success and support with other teams that I am on and hope this team will be just as great. I'm ready to become more frugal than I already was.

Hi all,
Just found this team and was delighted.

I've never really had much luck with couponing. I'll give it another try though.

Glad the book is there. I hope you find it useful. It seems that if you are willing to put in the time to couponing and strategic shopping, you can save tons!

My library has the book! I'll have to check it out this week.Maybe I'll go with my daughter after she gets home from school. Not sure how much homework she'll have. She was doing homework for 4 1/2 hours yesterday and it was her first day of school! She is a junior in high school and taking 4 honors classes and two college level classes. I'm very proud of her! But I bet you could guess that.

Welcome to the Team & SP Michelle!

Well, you have come to the right team. I am sure if this will help but,I use a lot of coupons. I get together with friends and share coupons, books, recipes, clothes, veggies and plants. We even get together once in a while and have a garage sale. It helps.

We look forward to getting to know you in our chats. emoticon

I read this book:

I took it out of the library!

It has amazing tips for reducing grocery and drug bills.

Hello everyone! I am really feeling the squeeze while trying to limit my grocery purchases. I buy the kids each a box of cereal, and I buy lots of chicken breasts and salmon, as well as frozen veggies. We also like eggs, and 1 or 2 gallons of milk. I also buy peanut butter and jelly, and bread and tuna. I try to keep it basic and simple, but it seems that the cost of groceries keeps going up. And unfortunately, our wages are not. What else can I do? I have two teenagers and a hard working husband.

Hi there,

I'm Julie too. I'm a mother and teacher and live in a very expensive city where our rent is way beyond our means but other rents are even higher. I'm so excited to join a group to get support, motivation, inspiration, and new ideas for living more frugally.

Best,

Julie

Hi. My name is Julie. I am a homeschooling mom of three. I love to be careful with the money my husband works so hard to make. I need to lose between 80 and 100 lbs and am feeling really positive about journeying along this path with SparkPeople.

Hi. I joined SP in May and am loving every moment. The nutrition part of my journey is easy; the fitness part is more of a challenge. The idea of living frugaly and simply has appealed to me since I was a young adult. So here I am! Let's share with and learn from each other in the SparkPeople way!
