Hello, I am Candy.  I am like many of you, a mom trying to make ends meet.  Our life had really changed in June 2008 when my husband had to close his business and now we are living on one income. I know many families have been living on one income for years and we are not special, but it has been a challenge trying to build my cleaning business to support our family.  Now looking back it may have been a good thing for us, because  I had to get serious about our finances. My hope with this site is to help and learn new ways to stretch, save and live. I love frugal tips and ideas.  If you would like to share any please contact me. I am married to Randy and have been for 21 years. We have four children ages 20,17,15 and 13. We live in Maumee, Ohio.

We are again starting over again after 2 1/2 year…… we find ourselves unemployed. I am actually looking forward to getting back on our frugal track. Randy and I have been married 23 years, Our oldest is now married, we have one in college and 2 in High school. Time is flying. God’s blessings! Candy

    Hi Neighbor!
    Bill and I watched you and Randy on the news last night with your great shopping tips.That was exciting! We had no idea that you had this website. Now I keep reading and reading and trying to soak up all the information. Thanks for all your tips. I’ll try to think of some to pass on. This is a wonderful service you are doing.
    God Bless You!

    PS. You might let the “Seniors” know that they can eat delicious and nutricious meals at most of the local senior centers for only a donation of $2.00 or whatever they can afford.

    Candy, nice little site , congrats on your “Blade” feature! Does it cost to do the library thing? I would love to go. I didn’t check my work schedule yet, I’m a nurse and I work 12hr shifts, feel free to visit me, and if I can be of any local help I’m out there!
