Test post and introduction

Testing? Testing??

I think we're good!

I'm starting this blog because, well, I'm hoping it will be interesting to some.  I'm a stay-at-home-mom. I like to think of it as being a domestic engineer, although my "for real" engineer husband says I just want to be an engineer because they're cool.  I have a beautiful family that I love taking care of.  We're very blessed that I can stay home with our kids and take care of them and our home.  Staying at home is a big job in the sense that you take care of the kids and run the household.  I have my ideas of what I "should" do as an at home mom, and one of those things is I try to find ways to save our family money.  My wonderful husband, Matthew, supports us very well, but every little bit I can save us is spending money in our pockets.  We can work on our house, take our family on vacations, etc. and have extra spending money if I'm saving us money in other places.

I scour the web for coupons, I check the sales ads at the stores, and I shop around.  I've recently begun to actually cost-compare stores by making a list and going "shopping" at two different stores, where I write down the prices of everything and then compare my totals.  I recently posted my first cost-comparison to a Facebook note, and I'll probably re-write it and post it here just because.

Another thing I've been very interested in lately is product reviews.  That's a whole post in of itself, for sure.

I'll probably post little blurbs here and there about my life - having kids is like free entertainment, people, I'm telling you.

Bare with me while I get it all figured out.  Happy reading :)

    Kids are definitely entertainment...but I don't know about the "free"
