At playgroup today we had our attachment parenting topic which was toddlers and nutrition. I really needed to get help from other moms with ideas for nutrition for Corgan. It's gotten rather hard pleasing him to eat. There was lots of talk about eating organic. I've always wanted to eat more organic but was convinced it was too expensive. So when I got home I did a search on eating organic frugally. I was convinced there's a way to make it happen. I came across several articles on by Erin Huffstetler. She has a page on organic coupons. I plan on printing out several of those.

I'm sharing next week at playgroup on saving money and using coupons. I'll share The Couponizer system as well. I am going to start working on handouts to share as well. I don't want to overwhelm the ladies since it's a playdate as well and our kids will have most of our attention.

Enter to win a free tutu! I thought this would be cute to have for photo shoots...and hopefully for a future baby girl (if God blesses me with a girl).

Looking for a Christmas gift that will save you money? I have just what you're looking for! With the way the economy is right now more and more people are turning to coupons. Coupons can help you cut your grocery budget in half or even more. I have recently gotten into couponing myself. However I came across the problem of not having a good system for them. I had coupons going to waste because I wasn't organized enough. It felt like I was throwing money away everytime I threw an expired coupon away. It is! Companies are basically giving us money to use on their why aren't we using it?

Well I found the solution to my organizing problems and I wanted to share it with you! It's called The Couponizer. It was created by Amy Bergin - a SAHM who wanted to save money.

What is The Couponizer? It's a system that compiles of a wire-bound coupon holder that has a sorting chart, shopping list pad, coupon tracker (so you can see how much money you're saving), scissors and a nice clear carrying case so you can always have it with you.

How much does it cost? $19.95 + $5.75 S&H. You'll be able to earn your money back quickly when you shop with coupons.

I will be placing an order of these soon so please let me know if you're interested in purchasing one (or more for gifts). If you are local, send me a message and I'll get it to you. If you are not local you can order off of this website: The Smart Way to Organize Savings

Just a video of interest to share. I have the book that was written by her and I frequent her website. She's a smart woman!
