I love blogging because of the people you can meet, the online community that is formed, the amazing things I learn, and it truly helps keep me organized!  I like to do a quick post on coupons other bloggers mention - or deals I have found around town.  I re-read my blog later to remind me to take advantage of some of those deals!  I love reading recipe and food blogs that encourage me to stretchhhhhh my imagination a bit in the kitchen!
My blog is fairly new, and I have not made it known to much of anyone.  I have had a few people stumble upon me-which is wonderful!  I hope to make this blog a bit of a "one stop spot" for people in my small town to see what the best deals are around here.  Our town has been hit HARD by the economy, and I know there are more families than just ours learning how to make a dollar go further.
Here are a few of the awesome blogs I like to read-passing on the award:
North Dakota Frugal Mom - a fellow Cash Wise shopper/deal poster 
$30 Weekly Grocery Challenge - this was one of the first "money saving" blogs I found, and I recall my jaw dropping a bit at being able to live on only $30.  Now, I've learned - it is possible!  Very encouraging and lots of great deals found here!

Meal Planning with Connie - a wonderful blog to encourage me to keep doing the meal planning, and lots of awesome recipes!


  1. Thank you, Brook! How sweet!! I've added a link back to you in my side bar.

    Many blessings to you!!!

  2. Thank you so much for the award :) - I am greatly honored! Thanks for everything!
