|The Coupon Maven|
I am a stay-at-home mom living in the Seattle area and I have been trying to save my family money by couponing and being as frugal as possible in general. I love a good deal and will get it wherever I can, but I love supporting local businesses and farmer markets in particular (yes, you can get good deals at these places)! In this way, I can support my community and be good to the environment by buying locally grown produce and locally manufactured food and items. I also like to give back to my community by donating items I have gotten cheaply or for free to the local food bank and homeless shelters. I hope that my blog inspires other people to save money and spread it around!
