My Very First Post!

So this is my first post on my new money saving blog. I've been inspired by other frugal bloggers, and I have decided to make one of my own, because I want to be able to share my deals, coupons, freebies, tips with everyone else. So I will begin by posting pictures of my CVS and Walmart shopping trips from last week as soon as I can find my cable for my camera!
