Mommysaver Spotlight: *~Amber03~*

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
What is your first name? Amber

What are your kidsʼ names and ages? Kellan 7, Brooklyn 2 and Nolan 9 months

How did you find Mommysavers? Have you referred anyone here? Were you referred here? I found it when I was looking up moms saving money.

What does your user name mean? Just my name and the 3 represents 3 kids

Out of all the things the members here have offered in terms of advice, support, counsel and criticism, what have you personally benefited from? And do you remember specifically who the member was that offered that advice? Too many to list. Most of the members are supportive and have great tips. I love the tips about freecycling and "shopping" at home first.

How many coupons do you use on a regular basis? I don't really use that many coupons. I buy generic brands and shop at Aldi's

What was your most recent "bargain"? Getting a box of really nice name brand clothes for Brooklyn from a freecycler.

What have you done to save money this week? Tried to make meals with things I had on hand and took back some items I didn't need.

What do you consider a way of life that others think is a crazy way to save? I get bottles out of the trash at work to return for money. Why waste a perfectly good deposit.

What is your favorite store in which to find bargains? Goodwill AS IS store

What is the best deal you ever found (even if it wasnʼt at your favorite store)? I guess buying things at Big Lots like baby cereal for 1.00 and baby food for 25 cents.

What is your best money saving tip? Before you buy something new make sure you don't already have something like it at home and make sure you cannot find it used.

What is your favorite frugal meal? noodles and spam

Do you enter contests? If so, what is the best prize youʼve ever won? No, I typically do not, but I did get paid 20 dollars one time to do a tv survey

If money were no object, what 3 things would you buy yourself or your family? A boat, A new house and garage

If you had $10 to spend on yourself (you and you alone) what would you buy? That is hard because I rarely buy for myself maybe a couple of new books or a new clothing item.

Are there words you live by? What are they? "Be the change you want to see in others" and the Serenity prayer.

Sum yourself up in 1 word: Changing

MS Mom of the Week is a fun way for us to get to know the Mommysavers members. Newbies to the board as well as regulars are welcome to participate. The Mom of the Week is randomly in advance of her being featured. I do this so I can contact you, let you know your feature date, and arrange to receive a picture from you to include with the survey. Having a picture included is so we can make it a little more personal and put a name to a face. This is optional of course, as are all the questions being asked. If I don’t hear back from you before your “feature” date, I will randomly select the next person and then get back to you the following week. If you would like to participate please PM 2bearsmom and we will get you signed up.
