AIMEE - A New Tight Wad Contributor!

In order to have more giveaways on Tight Wad I needed more help from a like minded friend.  So along with me, Veronica, and Sarah, I've asked Aimee to join the team!  Welcome Aimee!!  She'll have a giveaway up TODAY!


I'm a firm believer that it's possible to have the things you want and need without breaking the bank.  And with two young children and a recent college grad to take care of, I am always trying to find ways to save money.  In the past, my money-saving ways have consisted mostly of using coupons from my Happenings Books.  But even with this wonderful arsenal of savings, I wanted to save more.

I had always been leery of coupons on the internet and would try and keep it safe by sticking to only the coupons that came out in the newspaper.  That is, until recently when I talked to Audrey about where to find more coupons.  "They're EVERYWHERE" she exclaimed!  Audrey opened my eyes to other numerous resources besides the newspaper.  She assured me that they are in fact "real" and legit.  Since then I have come to know with more clarity this wonderful world of "never pay full price."  I have always been a big fan of getting free stuff and saving money, I just didn't know how readily accessible it was.

Thank you, Audrey, for guiding me through the vast and exciting land of savings!  It's a fun place to explore! :)

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
