This Cheapskate is Having a Baby!

Many of you might be wondering where I've been recently. I haven't posted Hornbacher's deals in weeks. At best I might get 1 or 2 deals posted per day. On a good day. 

I can answer that question easily. I've been sleeping.  A lot.  And I've been busy being sick.  And dealing with migraines.  And being so excited for the little blessing that's growing inside of me!

You heard me right, we're having a baby!  Our daughter is turning 4 this week and she'll be a big sister this fall!

I want to thank all of you for being so kind and refraining from mean e-mails when I haven't gotten around to the things I've said I'd do in the last several weeks.  And for being gracious with unanswered emails.  And the list goes on.  :)  You all are the best readers, and I mean that!  Thanks for continuing to encourage me with your comments and emails like you always do! 

All that being said, I really hope that I'm coming out of the worst of it.  I hope to be back into the groove again soon.  Don't worry, I'm getting plenty of sleep and taking care of myself and baby, I am just excited to try to get back into the stores with my coupons when I'm feeling up to it!

Coming soon:  I hope to share a post or two about couponing (or the lack thereof) in different stages of our lives.  I can tell you right now I've printed and used a few coupons, but shopping for deals has definitely come in second to sleeping, eating and generally trying to keep up around the house.  Hopefully that post will be encouraging to others walking through an illness in the family, having a baby, moving to a new home or other challenging circumstances.

PS - In case you think I'd bare my belly for the world to see, rest assured that the photo above is a stock photo, I can only wish mine were that cute!  :)


  1. Congrats again! We all completely understand. Heck, I shut mine down I was so overwhelmed so you're doing wonderful by my standards!

  2. Congrats! Thank you for coming to Faith First MOPS today and giving a wonderful presentation on couponing! May God continue to SHINE on you! God Bless! :)

  3. Another gift from God. Just beautiful!

  5. Congratulations! I appreciate all your great info, and helping me save $$$ ! We understand, Baby and family comes first!


  6. Awesome!!! Uber congratulations! Let's face it: Sometimes being pregnant is horrible miserable, but in the end it's so worth it and you'll get to cuddle the little one soon. I'm so happy for you and will be sending positive feel-good energy your way!
