I love free stuff. That’s actually how this blog started out… When I found out that I was pregnant, I started looking for tips on stretching my budget farther, which led me to the world of super smart blogs written by super clever moms. I learned that there were tons of ways to earn money from home, shop online for free, and get free stuff. Between requesting samples of cool new products and winning a lot of fun giveaways, checking my mailbox started to feel like Christmas every day!
When I lost my job right after having Abby, I decided that I’d share some of the cool tips that I’d learned – in addition to the freebies, I’d also become a master at the whole, “Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without” type of lifestyle. We grow our own fruits and veggies, do a lot of canning and freezing, clip coupons, and love DIY. So I started Sunshine and Sippy Cups as a way to share all of that fun stuff! So I’ve decided that on the weekends, as I go through my emails and find cool free stuff and frugal ideas, I’ll share my favorites in a list with you ladies too. Welcome to the first edition of Frugal Finds for Busy Moms :)
