All About Me
Wednesday, August 10th, 2011
Hi everyone. Welcome to my Blog. I am aparna. I am from India and we are settled here now. I have been in US for almost 8 years. We have two kids. One girl sumi and one boy kittu. I am truly blessed to have this beautiful family. I am a stay at home mom. I never liked the idea of me going to work. I wanted to always stay home and care for my family. When we had kids, I realized living on one income is very stressful, so I thought to myself “If you can’t earn a dollar you really need to stretch a dollar”.
I stopped buying national brands and switched to store brand products because they were little affordable. I was not satisfied with the quality of store brands. So one day I just searched on the internet if there was any way to grocery shop for less. Then I found out about coupons and blogs.
I was shocked to see all the deals people were putting together and buying stuff for less. I researched for almost a month on all money saving blogs ( my husband thought I was going nuts), I started implementing their ideas here and there to see how it worked for me. It was working wonders. What products I thought were not affordable with our budget, now were becoming cheaper or even free after using coupons. I slowwly understood every coupon rule there is, how to shop at drugstores, how to earn money from home. I saved some money on my grocery bill. That was inspiration to continue doing this. I learned a lot and I am still learning lot of stuff. If I can do this, anyone can do this. Just have patience. It doesn’t happen overnight.
My extended family was surprised to see my savings. For them I started this blog to document everything I do in the store. Now blogging has become my passion.I found a way to help others and at the same balance my kids from the comfort of my own home. This blog is all about saving money and stretching your dollar. I hope you stick with me on this journey and discover what life has to offer us.
