My name is Melanie, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve always been good at saving money. Anyone who knows me, knows I hate paying full price and love to find a deal.
This became especially true when I became a mom last year, and quit my job to stay home with my daughter. It was the first time I didn’t have a job or a paycheck coming in, and though I had saved money so I could stay home for a while, I wanted to stretch my savings as long as possible. So I started watching my dollars even more, coupon-clipping and searching for the best deals to get the most bang for my buck.
Now even though I’m back to work, I still like to save as much money as I can. My friends always ask me for my tips and tricks for getting discounts, and since I love to help people, I thought why not create a website to spread the wealth even further? I know many of us are experiencing hard times, and need to watch every penny. So voila. I created SmartySaver.com to share the great deals I find, plus my money-saving tips to hopefully help you stretch your hard-earned buckaroonis. Maybe we’ll all even sock away some savings along the way.
I hope you enjoy my ideas and tips, and feel free to share yours as well. Here’s to all you Smarty Savers out there!
