this money saving mommy

so my intention was when i started this blog that i would be able to tell all my friends about my money saving deals. However, the TIME it takes to tell all of you about them and do them myself is the kicker. :-) I underestimated how much time it takes to do our personal blog let alone my money saving' blog. so here is what i am going to do: i am going to put a pause on this blog for awhile, however if i find some really cool deals I'll post them on my personal blog here:

In the meantime here are four blogs I follow to get my good deals: bookmark them and come back to them: (in order of how much i love 'em)
