About Me

I am a full-time wife, trying to make, budget and save the money while my husband continues on his educational path.  Through Brian's undergraduate journey, we had to sacrifice in so many ways - especially financially.  We learned (sometimes the hard way) about budgeting, finances, and of course COUPONING!  Through that knowledge, we have been able to become better stewards of our money, appreciate the dollar, make wiser decisions and live a minimalist, content, debt free lifestyle!  Like Dave Ramsey says "Live like no one else, so you can live like no one else." 

I now have an "extreme" passion for money, wealth and frugality, whether by couponing, deal-finding, budgeting, saving for big purchases, etc.  I believe that God has called us to be good stewards of our finances - whoever can be trusted with little, can be trusted with much.  I am passionate about helping others, especially young people learn about finances, frugality, saving money, etc. Of course it's never too late to start, but the sooner the better! "Sacrifice today for a better tomorrow."

I teach private voice and piano in the Metroplex, and Brian is a middle school teacher/coach.  We both love our jobs and view teaching as a calling and a ministry.

Since I began couponing in October 2008, we've been able to save thousands of dollars each year, and pay off several thousands worth of debt.  Here are our totals so far:
2011 - Saved $7,617.46, Debt Pay-off - $19.237.10

2010 - Saved $8,062.82, Debt Pay-off - $25,357.22

2009 - Saved $8,550.72, Debt Pay-off - $9,806.31

I hope to inspire you to save money and pay off debt so you can live a wonderful, stress- and worry-free life!
