Hey ya’ll. (my best Paula Dean impression) Many times I am asked about my frugal shopping habits. With 7 kids, I try to watch every penny. So I thought I’d share my biggest secret:
I have lots of help!! Not with the shopping, but with the preparing, for sure!!
In no obvious order, here are my awesome blogging friends whom I rely on HEAVILY to outline the best deals and the most frugal ways to shop.
Money Saving Mom
Her tagline says she will help you become a better home economist. I had the privilege of meeting Crystal Paine recently at #Relevant11 and just love her sincerity and integrity. A wealth of information on this site and it is always up to date.
“Founded on the principles of Luke 12:24, Faithful Provisions is dedicated to showing individuals and families how to save money by encouraging, equipping and empowering good stewardship.” While Kelly is in TN, almost all of her deals are viable here in Ohio. I really appreciate her weekly Kroger shopping post.
Saving & Giving
“This site is dedicated to sharing ways to spend less, save more, and give generously. Hopefully you can walk away with some shopping strategies, recipes, ideas for generosity, or just a bit of encouragement each time you visit.”
If you don’t know where to start with frugal shopping, there is a quick overview that is an excellent resource here.

Sami is all about learning, living, saving and sharing. I enjoy Sami’s vacation and staycation suggestions. She has many ideas about pursuing your dreams and passions, yet living reality. She does some giveaways and has a great Christian perspective.
I hope you will pay these ladies a visit; I appreciate each one of them tremendously!
