Hello, my name is Katrina and I’m the Savings Savvy Mom! My husband and I have 3 children (Emily, Chloe, and Nathan) and live in Phoenix, AZ. I have been earn and saving money for almost my entire 8 year marriage. When we were first married we were like most newlyweds and didn’t have very much money. Shortly after getting married, we found out I was pregnant and we decided I would stay home while Jordan worked so that I could be home with the baby and take care of myself. Living on one income was not easy, and I wanted to find a way I could stretch our one income to cover all of our needs. I saw a special on a blog one day that would allow me to get the newspaper for $1 per week for the first year. This is when I decided to start couponing! I started out saving money so that we could pay for necessary items (shampoo/conditioner, toilet paper, deodorant, laundry soap, etc). At one point, we had enough laundry soap, body wash, and deodorant to last a year without buying anymore at all! Now I am able to save money so we can afford nicer items and add to our vacation fund! I use a variety of websites, coupons, and apps to save and earn money.
I started this blog as a way to share my knowledge with other busy moms who want a way to earn and save extra money, whether it be just go get by or to add money to take a family vacation. If you have any apps or websites you want me to review, please email me at Katrina.Jones1@live.com. I’d love to hear from you!
