I’m Megan, a stay-at-home mom of two girls (ages 5 and 1). I have always used coupons and looked for good deals. I started really “couponing” after I became a stay-at-home mom in June 2013. I quickly went from saving around 30% on my family’s grocery bill to 60%! After other women saw my savings, I started receiving requests to teach them how to do the same. I was so touched by all of the stories women told me on the reasons they wanted to save money. Some women wanted to save so they could stay at home with their kids. Some women wanted to coupon strictly so they could give away all the free personal items. Some women wanted to save money to help pay for a mission trip.
All of the reasons are wonderful for wanting to learn how to save money, but I didn’t always have time to sit down with each woman individually to show them the “ins and outs”. I knew there had to be a way to help without being away from my family. I felt led to start a blog/site where all the information was accessible, with easy deals, and easy tips on how to save money. Frugal Finds During Naptime was launched in January 2014, with the help and expertise of my husband (a wonderfully, talented I.T. guy ;)).
I’m not like the other big sites. I don’t have a staff that works for me. I don’t have access to all of the store ads super early, and I can’t always stop in the middle of whatever I’m doing (normally because I’m changing a diaper :)) to post a “super hot” deal because it is just me. I know I’m a small site, but do you know what you will get from this site? You will get a lot of small, easy deals to do that won’t overwhelm you. You will get answers back when you comment, message, or email me. You will get simple money saving tips, frugal family fun ideas, and DIY projects. You will get tips and ideas on how to do an extra Operation Christmas Child shoe box for less than $2.00. I will show you how to get items for free. Some of these freebies you may not use, and are great to donate to shelters or ministries.
I truly do have “frugal finds” and can help you learn to save money. Whether you’re wanting to pay down debt, save for a big purchase, or something else, I can help you learn how to save so you can achieve it. Remember: Any savings is a good savings. 🙂
