ABOUT THE BLOG

This blog isn’t about eating ramen every night or sharing a toothbrush to save. Instead, it’s about spending money wisely so that we can afford the luxuries without worry – healthy food, going on vacations,  etc. It’s time we take charge of our finances, make more money and grow as a person.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hello, I’m Glenda and I’m really glad you’re here!

             

I live in Northern California with my husband and two kids. I love deals and Target! You, too? Ok, let’s be friends!

I was a freelance graphic designer, Etsy shop owner, part-time teller, and an engineering student before I became a mom. I loved this season of life. My goals were clear and my inner-artist heart was fulfilled.

I became a stay-at-home mom when we had our first baby in 2009. The first time I met my daughter I thought to myself, “There was no way I’m leaving her with a babysitter.” It was a decision my husband fully gave his support. No regrets.

Motherhood was a league of its own! I suffered from sleep deprivation and postpartum depression. It was difficult and even more so with the arrival of our son 21 months later. Being a mom demanded much, much more from me – mentally, physically and spiritually. At the same time, I’ve lost who I was. Have you ever felt that way? I think it’s because I put myself last on the priority list; I didn’t take care of me.

This was the time I started to look for answers in books, turned to meditation and also learned couponing.

Ohhh yes, COUPONING! I saw it in the news one evening and the rest was history.

Being a stay-at-home mom gave me an opportunity to learn and grow as a person. I reflected a lot on where I was in my life and how I wanted to live it. I learned about mindfulness and minimalism. I’m not a minimalist but I do incorporate a lot of minimalism philosophies in all aspects of my life.

I am grateful to be able to stay home with my children. I am grateful for couponing which became part of my lifestyle.

I’m grateful for you for visiting and reading my blog.
