We write a blog about saving money and making time for what matters to you.
Introduction
We're Ed and Robin. We get a thrill out of a good deal. We are inspired to spend money well in order to have the life we really want. We're the parents of two. We have ideas. We read. We make stuff. We cook. We plan (well, Robin does). Robin works as a Registered Dietitian. Ed is a teacher. This blog is our way to share our money saving ideas and so our friends and family don't get that glazed over look in their eyes when we talk about this stuff so much...
