The person behind the Frog
I was born at St Luke’s Hospital on the Plaza and have lived in Kansas City my whole life. I have been married for 12 years and have 2 fabulous kidlets. After earning my Associate’s Degree from Johnson County Community College and a Bachelor’s Degree from Ottawa University, I worked in accounting and finance. Clipping coupons and price matches became a requirement when I was laid off from a job. And when we decided for me to be a stay-at-home mom, we severely cut our spending. Thankfully, I was already using price matches and clipping coupons.
Clipping coupons was something that was passed down to me by my mother. Price Matching is also something I have been doing for a while even before most companies even had a policy on price matches. The one that still makes me laugh today was the camera I purchased at Best Buy. I had several hundred dollars in gift cards to Best Buy. When I was about to purchase the camera, the price went up. So I went home and found that Amazon.com had the best deal. I went to the first Best Buy and they would not honor the price match. My husband thought I would give up but I went to the second Best Buy and they did the price match for the lowest price that Amazon.com showed on their website. I never mentioned that I had a pocket full of gift cards for Best Buy. So I got the camera I wanted for the price I wanted.
I am constantly learning new ways to save money and share whatever I have learned so other busy families can have the benefits and save the time and money. Have a HOPtastic day!!!
