I was a 3-Starbucks-a-day kind of a gal. Now, I'm a cheapskate.

The Cheapskate Mom is The Little Blog That Could:
I'm staying at home right now to take care of my young son "J" and haha- three elderly cats. It's been a wonderfully enriching experience.My husband (a wonderfully devoted teacher) and I had a whirlwind romance: I ended up moving from Vermont to Southern New England in the blink of an eye. I got an excellent job – we got engaged…. We booked the caterer…. We found out I was pregnant (a miracle for us) – we got married – I had to quit said job due to exhaustion (60+ hours a week at 6 months pregnant) – and we had baby J.
I have found myself really thinking differently about money and budgets. Things I once thought were absolutely necessary to my very survival aren't so important anymore. I want to share with you some of the ideas and tips I come up with or come across while surfing the internet ocean in my spare time. I also really want to hear from you – what innovative, ordinary, odd or brilliant ideas and tips do you have to share about being a "cheapskate"?
