New Sections Coming Soon!

I just wanted to let everyone know that while posts are never really ‘regular’ on here they will continue to be sporadic for the time being. However, it’s for good reason. I’m happy to announce that I will be working on coupon tutorial pages! They’ll be the basics of couponing and possibly some more advanced stuff. But let’s face it, that’s one of the easiest ways to cut that grocery bill in half and so I’m going to devote an entire section to couponing and shopping sales! In the mean time, please be patient with me. I’ll be working on them and putting them up as quickly as I can but since this will be more than just a simple post I’m going to devote some extra time to them.

In the mean time, if there is a specific topic you’d like to hear about or a question you’d like an answer to I’d love to hear from you! You can post it in the comments section below or email me at itmakescentstome@gmail.com. I’d also really appreciate you spreading the word about It Makes Cents to Me! with your friends, family, co-workers, fellow church goers, random people at the grocery store or just anyone who could benefit from the content here or is looking to keep a little more of their family’s income in their own pockets.

Last, but certainly not least, I’m also happy to announce that you can now find It Makes Cents to Me! on Facebook and Twitter! Again, for now, posts will be sporadic as this is a one woman operation for the time being, but I’ll do my best to get everything done in a timely matter. I truly appreciate your support and patience!

God Bless,

Megan

Getting Off to a Rough Start

Just as I was creating this blog our world came tumbling down… we have lots of faith in God to get us through, but smart financial decisions will be necessity for a while. I started to learn about couponing and frugal ways of life out of want. I was led by a desire to provide the most I could for my family. We’re small but we have family spread out all over the country, we’d like a house one day, and while loads of money will never be what makes us rich, having a little extra in the bank gives us a definite feeling of financial security. However, we found out 3 or so weeks ago Chris will be losing his job with the Air Force which now makes frugality a necessity.

It’s a long story, one that I’m just not going to bother re-hashing, but the Air Force announced it would be cutting back 3,700 Airmen and Chris just happened to be standing in front of the firing- no pun intended. God blessed me with a sense of calm from the beginning and while we’ve had our moments of trying to control our life, we are constantly reminded that if we want to get through this unscathed we’ve got to put it in God’s hands. The job search began yesterday and we’re casually looking at rentals and for a second car. Read the rest of this entry »
