Greetings all. If you follow the forums, you have probably seen me posting, most often in the CVS and Walgreens forums (I’m the designated CVS Mod). I am a mom to a rambunctious 2 year old who was born with a congenital heart defect which has so far required countless surgeries and we still have more to go. After he was born I decided to stay home with him to get him through his initial repair surgeries.
Going from a full time income to nothing is not easy, but it can be done. I was a coupon shopper and drugstore deal addict before my son was born but coupons turned from being a hobby to a necessity once I decided to stay home with him. I thought I had known everything there was to know about coupon shopping until I joined Kathy’s How to Shop for Free group 2.5 years ago. With strict frugal living combined with hardcore coupon shopping, I am able to provide everything my family needs.
I have also discovered ways to make money from home using the Internet. By using a couple of freelance websites, I have been able to pick up a few clients to do basic administrative and web development work that I can do in my own free time. I can do as much or as little work as I want and still have plenty of time with my son. The amount of work I do will soon go down as I will be going back to school this semester to finish my Biology/Medical Sciences degree.
Well, that’s the basic story of me. Until then, I’ll see you in the forums and you can look forward to a few more blog posts from me throughout the day.
