Hi all! I am starting this blog, because numerous people have been asking me about my 'couponing' lately. I figured I can give you all my hints and tips here, as well as direct you to where I find my ideas and scenarios.

The title and web address signifies what is most important to me right now. God of course is my first priority. I strive (not always with success) to have a daily walk with him and make him the priority of my day and life. It is not always easy, as it requires a conscious effort and focus. I do not intend for this blog just to be about couponing and saving money, but things I am learning through my walk with Him, as well as things that are going on in my day to day family life. My family comes next. I recently became a SAHM (stay at home mom), after working in the nursing field. Don't get me wrong, I love being a nurse and am so thankful for the calling God put on my life at that time, but my husband and little boy are so much more important at this moment. I will one day go back to my profession, but I feel my Godly calling is to be at home with Ian and any more children we may have.

I believe that being a wife and mother is the hardest job out there. I believe however, that 'with God, all things are possible'. When you go from a dual income family, to a single income family, it makes a huge difference in your spending and thinking. You want to be able to spend money on the necessities, but you want to do it wisely and as inexpensively as possible. Since I have been at home, I have found several wonderful blogs started by other women and mothers. You can find these links to the right of this site. In reading these blogs, I have found amazing ways to spend very little money on things that we all use daily. These women have shown me the ins and outs of shopping and finding deals. No longer do I buy my household and personal items at Walmart or Target. I am not worried about the cost of buying brand name items (thanks to coupons and sales), but yet, am not afraid to try cheaper versions of items if they too are on sale. I actually never pay full price for health/beauty/household/baby items....anymore.

So, in the next few days, I will be working on this site and try to get some of the basics to my madness up.

  1. Thanks for all your input about couponing. I went to CVS this morning and came home with 27.00 in bucks and a 5.00 off 15.00 purchase and 5.00 off 25 dollar it! Next week my goal will be to NOT spend out of pocket! Just keep rolling those bucks week after week!
