Okay, so after more mulling over my New Year's Resolutions, I've come up with an important one that I really should add to the list. So, without further ado...
9. Pinch those pennies.
Since making the transition from full-time working mom to stay-at-home mom 8 months ago, I've done a fairly good job curbing my spending. But I know I can do better with budgeting. So, this year, I want to learn all I can about being frugal. I'm going to clip/print those coupons, organize them - and really use them. I'm going to try and plan our weekly menu based on what's on sale in the grocery brochure. I'm going to seek out coupons or promo codes for any online purchases. Whatever I can do to preserve those precious pennies, I will. I'm actually excited to see how much I can save. It could be a fun little game as I experiment and try to outdo myself!
But before I can get started, I need to know: who are your favorite frugal mamas? Here are some that I've come to love, but I'm always looking for more great deal discoverers:
Queen of Free
