About Me

Hi, my name is Andrea and that's my other half Mike. I'm a chocolate eatin', coupon clippin', God lovin', deal seekin', fun lovin girl who can't pass up a good deal! Mike on the other hand is a horse lovin', meat eatin', critter huntin', fun lovin', top sellin' gorgeous man that loves God (he's going to kill me). HA We live in God's country a.k.a. outside the city limits of Pueblo, Colorado. We have a beautiful one year old daughter (Bella). We also raise my 15 year old nephew (Hayden), he's amazing too. We are horse lovers ( have 4 big babies) and 2 dogs. We love God and serve him everyday!

I haven't always been the bargain hunter! I can remember in my early 20's paying $100 for a pair jeans. Not to mention if my mom stopped at second-hand-store I would stay in the car. It wasn't until later in my life that I realized how much fun saving money actually was.

I absolutely love to match coupons to the weekly or monthly ads! In the beginning I would purchase things for myself and soon realized that a family of 4 didn't need 10 tubes of toothpaste (they were free or $.25 I couldn't pass up the bargain). So I began to give things away or sell them on eBay.

Before I knew I started having people interested in learning how I was able to get so much stuff for free or over 50% off of just about everything I purchased. And a thought was born to give everyone access to my information. So that I could help my fellow Pueblo community save money by telling them where to go each week and what coupons to use!

I love sharing my knowledge on how to make that happen, but I'm always open to any deals that I haven't covered. So please if you find something that I have missed please let me know! Thanks for reading my blog and God Bless you and your loved ones!

Hi Andrea-
I LOVE your blog! I am looking for a blog designer and was wondering if you'd be willing to talk to me about your experience working with Restored 360.
I am really struggling with my current designer and before I make a change I am trying to really do my homework.
If you'd be willing to share your experience I'd be so grateful!
Feel free to leave me a comment on my blog or email me at sbaffone@sbaffone.com
Thank you, Andrea! Your blog is ADORABLE!

I am fairly new to super-couponing and have a question about newspaper subscriptions. I live in a smaller town (pop 100K) and want to subscribe to larger Sunday newspapers to get more coupons. How do you know which papers have the best coupons?

Hey Andrea,

I just wanted to say thanks for the nice comments! You are sweet. Thanks also for the hard work on your blog. I've gotten some great tips from ya and check it often. If you don't feel like doing a match up for the week, feel free to use my lists and give yourself a break sometimes, since I think most of ads are the same. Take care and God Bless!

Hey Andrea,
I wanted to give you a heads up on a coupon I found to day which will make the Tostitos deal at Walgreens even better. I just got home from King Soopers and I was so excited to find a coupon for $2.00 off Tostitos Salso con Queso when you buy 1 bag of Tostitos AND 1 jar of Tostitos Salsa, since my area missed out on the other Tostitos coupon in the newspaper. I will be using this at Walgreens since it is a MFR Coupon. Even if you don’t have a King Soopers in your area next time you are at your local grocery store check for this coupon. I found mine in the Mexican food isle.

I will be heading out to Walgreens tonight or tomorrow to pick some up and make sure all goes well- you never know with wags.

Also, I would just started my site momsthriftydeals a while ago and I would like to feature you and link back to you, is this okay.My site has a lot of the deals for the FrontRange - Loveland, Fort Collins, Greeley. I would also like to contact you to ask you a few questions if you have time.momsthriftydeals@gmail.com

Hi Andrea!

What a wonderful site!!! I added you to my blog roll so I can check your site daily. Thank you for the "make money" section too. I haven't looking into making money with my blog yet because I wanted to get some readers first. This section was really helpful. Looking forward to blogging with you!
