Hello all, I am Meg. I am a newly married, twenty-something, Arizonan, who refuses to pay for online shipping! My husband and I just purchased our first home and have four hungry mouths to feed (2 dogs & 2 cats). Meanwhile, we are trying to live a comfortable lifestyle on a tighter budget. What does that mean? Well, we still go to happy hour a lot but aren’t afraid to split an entree at a fancy restaurant.
I don’t do cash envelopes or anything extreme, just small, smart, changes. I am the girl who will call customer service when my promo code doesn’t work, buys gift cards in bulk when there is a deal, and always has a coupon ready-to-go on my phone at the checkout counter. I will also add, I LOVE quality (my Dyson is my life), and hope that all of my little savings offset a more expensive item when there is something fantastic to buy (like Beyoncé tickets).
I am the kind of girl who will do laps around my bedroom at 10 pm to hit my Fitbit goal, and then forget to wear my tracker for the next three days. I have an impressive collection of bath robes, trail mix, holiday socks, dirty laundry, and jeans that no longer fit (see comment about being a trail mix connoisseur). I will rejoice is saving $2 when spending $200 on my weekly Target visit. And, I am new to blogging, but seriously appreciate you stopping by!
My goal with this blog is to help you live big on a small budget, alert you to local deals, share what knowledge I have on getting the best deal possible, and have a little fun in the process. Thanks for stopping by!
