Free sample of freeze-dried food. Great for camping, hiking or whatnot.

Do we spend any money on our kid?

Do we save for our kid's college education?

Why don't we spend very much money on our kid if they're supposedly so expensive to raise?

I haven't really written a real post in a very long time, so here's a lovely 1,300+ word post to help you all save more money. Hope you like it. :-)
Couponing for the last 5 or 6 years has taught me many things. Things I never really paid attention to before I started using coupons. Since not everyone is interested in learning about coupons or even extreme couponing, I thought I would share some of my enlightenment with you all.

November and December are always the most expensive months for me. Sure I could ban Christmas presents, but my family would be very sad—assuming they would allow such a thing. I'm not a Black Friday kind of girl, I'm too nice, polite and passive to even think I could hold my own in that crowd.

So how in the world am I going to be able to save that much money in such a short time? Well, I'm not certain that I will, but I'll definitely give it a go.....

Quick note about freezer cooking:

If you're going to spend all the time and money with freezer cooking, spend a few minutes to create a menu plan. If you don't then you'll probably end up with a lot of wasted food. :-(

Yep, I didn't make a menu plan and had to throw out a TON of food. But now I know.
