A Thrifty Mom in the Idaho Statesman today

A Thrifty Mom made the front cover of the Life section today in our local Idaho newspaper, The Idaho Statesman. I was so nervous today waiting for the paper, so I sent my husband Matt to go buy one!

Once you are more familiarised with terms, places to find coupons, and stores that cater to us you’ll be on your way to saving hundreds. Just start by reading these post, and start small. Build up, plan a trip for a few items to see how cheap you can get them! Then you will be addicted.
