You may have seen my name on a few posts and wondered “who is she?” So I thought I would share a little about myself, my blog and why I’m posting on Freebie Spot.
My name is Mackenzie and I live in New Hampshire and have for most of my life except for six years in New Orleans while I went to college (go Green Wave!) and my husband was stationed in the Navy. I am the mother to two little girls, ages 5 years and 20 months and still married to my Navy man after 15 years.
For the last four years I’ve been couponing as a way to save money on the things we need (toothpaste, for example) in order to have money for spending on the things we want (vacation!). I started to give all my friends and family care packages with my extra finds and then started to send out emails with weekly coupon match-ups. Finally about 2 years ago I created a blog and worked on it part-time, one or two days a week, while I still worked at my technology job. Then February 2011 I was part of a layoff and I really needed to start to save my money. As I was finding more and more great deals I started to post more on the blog so my hobby had become my side “job”.
Then around September or so I met Jenny through the Mavens of Money and we became friends. We both love photography, graphic/web design and of course talking online. And because of this I offered to help Jenny on her blog since she has helped on my blog. So you may see posts with my name from time to time but it’s all been “Jenny approved”
I hope you enjoy the deals and savings we find you!
