Times are hard right now for many families and for many reasons. Many families I know have heard God's calling to add to their family through foster care or adoption of children. Many of there families grew to number 8,9 or 10 in the family...
Obviously, Mom has to stay home and take on that full time job. And Dad has to work...sometimes 2 jobs.
Some families have jobs that have been lost or pay has been cut.
January of 2008, I stumbled across a way of saving more than the norm in the grocery and drug stores.
I have always been a careful and frugal shopper, shopping clearance, sales and with coupons sometimes.
Well, this was far and beyond what I had ever done before and what I was surprised to learn was, it was doable....
I have been saving money by using this method for over 1 and 1/2 years.
I decided to start conducting workshops to help families save money too...and save BIG!
I decided with the Lords help to make this a business for my family as well.
I just graduated my youngest after homeschooling her for 13 years and well, I am out of a job, sorta.
I have a passion for saving and I want to share it with you.
If you want to see some successes of our workshops...read some testimonies here.
I can schedule workshops in your home if you want to host one. You can invite your friends and family and share this with them...I promise they will thank you.
The hostess will have benefits. The workshop will be free for the hostess and the hostess can actually choose some of the specific topics covered.
The hostess will receive prizes based on how many people are in attendance.
Please email me if you are interested.
I can also schedule to do this workshop through ladies ministries in churches.
If your ladies ministry is interested please contact me to schedule.

This is an ongoing process...learning everyday something different.
This is a place for students of the couponing workshop to post a testimony of their success.
Post about your shopping trip, your budget for the month...did you save?

For lovers of the cheesy cakes, there is no greater holiday. And today several cheesecake purveyors are offering free or half-off slices. Regional spots like Elis Cheesecake World in Chicago and Copelands in Georgia and Louisiana are offering customers free slices. If you've got a favorite local spot that specializes in cheesecakes, give them a ring. Chances are they're offering some sort of freebie or special to mark the day.
And the national outlet The Cheesecake Factory is also celebrating with a sweet deal: half off a slice of their super-rich creations. The catch is you must dine in to get the deal, and we're guessing you'll have to wait a while for a table. But half-price cheesecake doesn't come around every day, so if you're a fan, head on over. (Check with your local Cheesecake Factory to be sure they're participating, first!)
And if you're not able to hit The Cheesecake Factory today, try one of these 10 great recipes for cheesecake at home.
If you or someone in your home is eating a gluten-free diet, you can get a free coupon for one of Betty Crocker's new Gluten-Free Dessert Mixes ($4 value). Here's how to get yours:

- You'll be asked a few questions regarding your household's consumption of gluten and then you'll be asked for your address so they can send you the free coupon.
Walgreens just released an excellent coupon here which is good for 15% off all eligible items in-store or 20% off all Walgreens-brand items tomorrow (Friday, July 31, 2009).
The last time they released a coupon of this nature, it was good off your entire purchase so paired with the sales this week, it could make for some very sweet deals!
