Hi, I’m Amy and welcome to my blog. I am so excited to be able to share different systems to help you save money, declutter your space, homeschool your child, and free up your time. Those are things we can all appreciate. I have been using these systems and techniques to save our family money for years, and am so grateful for the opportunity to share them with others. I pray you are greatly enriched by this website.
I first started in the 90’s doing extreme couponing before there was even a word for it. We had nearly no money at the time and I had a budget of just less than $5. Like I said, times were tough. I had friends that donated all their Sunday coupon leftovers, which were like gold to me. I would spend hours going through them and organizing them in 4×6 index card box. I wish I had a photo to show you how overstuffed it was. At that time, it was common for stores to compete with each other using quadruple coupons. I was able to bring home over $90 worth of groceries for less than $5. And I’ve been hooked ever since. I have learned a few more tricks along the way, and I can’t wait to share them.
For the last 9 years, I have homeschooled my amazing daughter and coordinated and ran the local homeschool group for two years. I have seen the joys and the concerns that parents go through in deciding if it is the right thing for them. It’s a huge step, but it’s not as scary as you think. I want to share with any parent considering homeschool as an option, that it is very doable. Whether you are on a tight budget, have time constraints or feel like you don’t have the education to do it…. You DO! Where there is a will, there is always a way and I want to encourage you that there is nothing to fear.
