Introducing Andrea...

I don't know if any of you has read my "About Me" page here, but in it I told the following story:

I should tell you all that I come by this obsession (of finding a great deal) honestly!! There is a famous story in my family about my Papou (Greek for Grandfather) who recently passed away. Once many years ago, Papou went shopping and though I do not remember all the details accurately (my memory stinks), the basic jest is that on a shopping trip, he found ash trays on mega sale (I believe they were like 10 or 20 for a dollar), so Papou bought a case or two of them. No one in our family smokes at all and no one ever has, but he could not resist that deal. 40 or so years later, my mom and XiaXia (grandma) are still using those ash treys as candy dishes...

I am sure you can imagine that this is a family obsession, and my sister, Andrea likes a good deal as much as our Papou did and as much as I do! You can see a couple pictures of us above-one of us as children, and one as adults at her wedding. I am the beautiful brunette. :)

Andrea is going to be a contributor on this blog now as I feel the 2 of us together will do better at finding and posting the deals for you than I do alone.

I am going to let Andrea tell you about herself and her own deal finding obsession. Here she is:

Hello, fellow deal lovers!!  As my sister said, my name is Andrea and I also LOVE a great deal (it's in our blood).  Beckee is really the expert at finding awesome deals, but I occasionally find a great deal that I like to share as well.  So, Beckee was kind enough to invite me to contribute to her blog and hopefully help us all save a little more money.

Let me tell you a little about myself-I have been married for just over 10 years to a rock star accountant-his name is Jeremy.  We have four beautiful children-3 boys and 1 princess!  Sorry, you don't get to know their names.  ;)  We live in the Salt Lake Valley in Utah.  I am a stay at home Mom-I love to help my children and I'm on the PTA board at their school.  Family is the most important thing to me and I like to find deals that will benefit my family more than just financially-my favorite deals are free and discounted family activities.

Next week, I will be starting a $10 meals post.  My husband and I have always been very good at keeping our grocery budget pretty low while still feeding our family healthy and delicious meals.  I will be sharing my dinner ideas that you can make for your family for $10 or less!  Most of them will be for a family of 6 (since that's how big my family is)!  One of my favorite tricks is to use leftovers from one meal to create an entirely new meal with many of the same ingredients-big money and time saver!!  Look next Thursday for my first $10 meals post!  I am hoping to have more Utah deals for you as well.  Beckee already has a ton of Utah deals on here, but I'm hoping to be able to add more of a Utah perspective to the blog!  :)

Anyway-I think that's pretty much all there is to know about me.  Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks.
