About

Hi, My name is Carrie and I am the owner and author to CouponCloset.net and EatingonaDime.com. First, welcome and I hope you you will stay a while. ;)

A Little about My family:

I have a beautiful family of 6. My husband (and best friend) and I have 3 wonderful boys (a 6 year old and 5 year old twins) and then our princess who is 3. We have been foster parents for 3 years and just adopted our sweet princess this past summer.

Even though we already had a full and happy family with 3 beautiful boys, we felt called to be foster parents and are so happy we are. I could go on and on about foster parentying, why we chose fosters, ad how it has effected our lives… But I will save you all that reading (for now at least).We do plan to either continue to be foster parents and/or adopt more children.

How the Blog was born?

Ok, why did I start dthis blog? It all started with one class. I took a Financial Peace class by Dave Ramsey at my local church, St. Andrews United Methodist Church. We didn’t have a crazy amount of debt, but it still changed the way we thought. I tried to cut down our expenses to help pay off our minivan, but I couldn’t get the grocery budget to budge. We were spending on average a CRAZY amount of $900-$1000 a month. We were shocked, because we really thought we were only spending $500-600. It was VERY frustrating.

I could not get it any lower. Finally, I started couponing… I started REALLY couponing. It grew into a small obsession and I realized that no person or family could live like this… long term. There had to be a better way to get these great savings without it consuming my life. I figured it out! My sole mission now is to help as many people become saavy shoppers like myself while maintaining a normal life.

If you are wanting to save money in several areas of your life, then this is the place for you. If you want a blog to give you more than just deals, then stick around. You will find the best deals to snag, but I will also teach you how to maximize your savings in the minimum amount of time.  I am still in awe at how many people are actually using my methods and succeeding at saving money. Thank you so much for reading and following my blogs.
