Hey y’all! I’m Michelle, a stay-at-home Mom of two little ones, Hailey (3 years) and Junior, (1 year). When I’m not cleaning the house, changing diapers, preparing meals, or using the bathroom, I can be found blogging on scoring some fabulous deals and extreme couponing. I’m also a columnist at The Fayetteville Observer, where I write for the Saturday shopping column, “Smart Savings.” DH and I are stationed at Fort Bragg, NC, and you may have seen me at the PX or the commissary on post! I used to work in banking, where I was last a Loan Officer and Quality Control Coach at BECU in the Pacific NW. My passion is helping others save money, and I couldn’t stop once I gave up my career to stay at home with the kids!
Not only do I love blogging, but I love reading others blogs as well. You will usually spot me on a blog-hop when things aren’t too crazy, or over on the We Use Coupons forum. Aside from blogging, I absolutely love spending time with my family, and running around town with DH (when the 82nd hasn’t run him ragged). Oh, I also have a Bachelors in Psychology, do freelance web design, and also have a background in journalism – I ♥ to write. I have been a reporter for a few school papers, and used to even write books when I was in middle school. They were spin-offs from The Babysitter’s Club and The Fabulous Five, and I would spend weeks handwriting my own personal creations and sharing them with friends. Oh, how I wish I had kept those copies…!
