Hey, y’all (insert southern accent)! I’m Michelle, a stay-at-home mom three, all five and under. When I’m not cleaning the house, changing diapers, preparing meals, or using the bathroom, I can be found blogging on scoring some HOT Commissary deals and awesome DIY tips here on my blog. My passion is helping others save money, and I couldn’t stop once I gave up my career to stay-at-home with the kids about 6 years ago.
I absolutely love helping people with their finances, having been in the banking industry 10+ years, but when I quit BECU in February 2008, due to my husband having to PCS from the Pacific NW all the way to North Carolina, I had no idea what job opportunities I would have. Fortunately, I was able to volunteer with the Red Cross, and eventually, work at another credit union. But after having to PCS again, I knew it was time for a change, and I had always wanted to be my own boss, so that’s when the Military Wives Saving blog was born. Here, you’ll find Commissary Deals, freebies, coupons and tons of ways to save both money and time!
Aside from blogging, I absolutely love spending time with my family, reading, sleeping (because that’s rare around here), watching reality television shows, and exploring new restaurants. I have a Bachelors in Psychology, love dabbling in web design, and (surprise!), have a background in journalism (I ♥ to write)! In fact, I even wrote for the Smart Savings column in the Fayetteville Observer while we were stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC!
