I guess this is the place where I’m supposed to tell you about myself. Hmmmmmm……………… Well, my name is Connie and I am thrifty or frugal or whatever you want to call me but please don’t call me cheap. I love a deal and I think that if I was super duper rich, I would still go to the grocery store in my designer clothes (from the thrift store) and whip out my coupon binder. I will score $600 worth of groceries for $25 and go home happy.  But since I don’t have it like that I will  go to the grocery store and whip out my coupon binder and score a deal anyway.

I was inspired to write this blog by following some really cool blogs written by some very inspiring people. I like the blogs about making something from nothing and re purposing what you already have or can buy cheaply at garage sales and thrift stores. I just think It’s  cool and, although, I have been mulling this idea over in my head for a long time,  one of the writers threw down a challenge on her blog to decorate a room in 30 days. This really got me off my ass and one thing led to another and here I am pouring my heart out for everyone to read.

I procrastinate on everything and I used to call it letting my ideas play out, but now I’m just going to call it procrastinating. I am writing this blog to make myself accountable and I sure hope that along the way, I can inspire some of you. Maybe this will turn into a money maker for me. Hmmmmm…. that’s a thought. But for now, please join me on this journey and maybe gather some inspiration from my ideas and points of view.

Thank you for reading!
