Went Mall Shopping, Made $2.82!

This is only my second blog, so bear with me! I just have to write about today because I'm so thriled!

First of all, I'm signed up for all sorts of reward programs. You name it, I'm subscribed. One of my favorites is the Victoria's Secret club, because about twice a year, they send the "free panty cards." The one I got about two weeks ago was EVEN BETTER-- not only a free panty, but $10 off any purchase, so I got two free pair today! I was so thrilled!

I also had a $10 Old Navy gift card from the Viewpoints reviews I did a few weeks ago, and lucky me, this weekend is the GAP brands 30% off "Give and Get" promotion, so I scored some sweet deals. My husband needed new socks and I found a great shirt for my son for next summer, both for $7.12 total, and the sweet cashier refunded the balance in cash, so I left with $2.82!

If you haven't heard of Viewpoints, I highly suggest you try it out. Until August 31, they're running another review promotion, and you'll score a $10 Amazon gift card for 10 reviews. What a deal! Check out their website for complete details.

That's it, guys. If you're visiting, please leave a comment to say hi and help me out with a little constructive criticism!

Hey, guys!

This is my first post (on this blog) and I'd like to introduce myself.

My name is Caitlin, I'm 21 and a stay-at-home mommy to Nelson (Nels) Abraham, my 6-month-old rambunctious and totally AWESOME son. I had originally planned to return to work after my maternity leave, even though I loathed my job! I had no idea my son would be a high-risk infant, so when he was born with a ventricular septal defect which in turn led to pulmonary congestion and congestive heart failure, my plans changed exponentially. There is no way my son can be in a daycare because his respiratory system is very weak and also because he could easily choke or stop breathing. He is also on diuretics which make him urinate very frequently so he needs lots of attention.

My husband and I have made many sacrifices to ascertain our little guy is safe and sound and make sure I get to stay home with him. So far, he has never spent more than an hour away from either of us and he's never had a babysitter (other than my 16-year-old sister for about half an hour). These things being said, we have had to adjust our spending and I have become (even more of) a huge spend thrift!

I am all about sharing the wealth, so I made this blog specifically to stay in touch with my friends and family and pass along the awesome deals, albeit coupons, sales, reward points, or anything of the sort.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and don't be shy. I love to hear from everyone, plus it's REALLY creepy to lurk.
