I am a Illinois mommy to 3 crazy and rambunctious boys who I love more then anything, 2 BIG laborador retrievers and have a wonderful Husband of 16+ years.  I work full time for a pharmacuetical company and just graduated with my MBA in December 2011. 

After learning how to coupon last year to the best of my abilities, I have taken it on myself this year to value what I have, life is too short (as we learned last year after the loss of my dad) and make use of what I already have.  I plan to make 2012 my makeover year with savings, shopping. organizing, canning, gardening, and family priorities. 

I hope I am able to provide you some ideas, recipes, thoughts or even just give you the sense that wow, I'm not the only person in the world doing this!
