Hey readers! I have an exciting announcement. I have always been a “Deal Shopper” – but one of the first people to introduce me into the “Save some serious money while you shop” world was my college roommate Jill. She is a fantastic deal finder and has emailed me deals I’ve shared with you since I started blogging. On top of scouting out great finds – Jill is a TON of fun … I could tell stories, but I won’t – at least today…
Jill has helped us out behind the scenes from time to time – but she is just so amazing we want to make her an official part of the team. We know a lot of deal bloggers have a lot of behind the scenes helpers but we love working as a group publicly and sharing a bit of us with you all. I know you’ll love her – she’s GREAT! Welcome Jill!
Here’s a little Hello from Jill to you all:
Yippee! I am giddy with excitement that Lorraine and Becky have asked me to be a part of Utah Sweet Savings! I follow dozens of couponing and deal blogs, and have been so impressed with Utah Sweet Savings. It is a top notch blog, and you’re sure to only find deals here that are worth your while. I plan on using my own personal interests to add to the amazing deals that Lorraine and Becky have already been doing, so let me tell you a little about myself.
My family is my everything. My husband and I have three young children, ages 1 to 6. Being a mom and watching them grow and learn is incredible. We live in Cache Valley, and we love it so much here we hope to never leave. My husband is an architect intern (hopefully someday he’ll find time to take his licensing exams so we can drop the “intern”). With the downturn in the economy a few years ago, the construction industry was hit hard, and although we were so grateful he never lost his job, his hours were cut back. I had to do something to prevent our family from sinking into debt and staying afloat, but with our young children going to work just didn’t make sense for us. So to make a long story short, I started couponing, and went from spending close to $1000 a month on groceries and household supplies to less than $300 a month. Although my husband is again working full time, now that I know how much money couponing can save, I’ll never go back to purchasing at full price!
Deals can be found on everything. Like many of our readers, I have pets, so I will find you deals on quality products for your furry friends. I am also a runner, and will share offers and codes that I receive on races and other athletic events across Utah. I recently underwent a dramatic lifestyle change, and lost over 40 pounds. I will let you know about healthy opportunities that won’t break the bank. And finally, I will let you know about ways you and your family can have FUN on the cheap in Utah, with maybe a special emphasis on my beloved Cache Valley.
Like Becky and Lorraine, I am here to help YOU find the savings on the things your family needs and wants. If you are looking for a deal on a particular item, drop us a line on Facebook or here and we’ll scout it out for you! We want Utah Sweet Savings to not only save you money, but also your time!
