Welcome to my blog!
Hi, I’m Dana, otherwise known as “Mrs. Not Made of Money”. I started this blog way back in 2006 as a way of keeping myself focused on our family’s financial goals. I’m a SAHM to 4 wonderful kids and one adorable puppy, and I am very thankful that my husband and I have found ways to keep ourselves out of debt all while living on one income and raising a family. While it hasn’t always been an easy journey, it’s one that I have no regrets about.
So what goes on here on Not Made of Money? Well, I share tips to save money and stretch the family budget. I share recipes, deals, coupons, time saving strategies, personal finance thoughts, and I run giveaways and write product reviews. I share what things have worked for us, and what life lessons we have learned regarding money and finances. I’m a huge fan of clearance sales (love you Target!), garage sales, BOGO deals, Diet Coke, online shopping, and hockey. Random, I know. I’d like to think I’m a pretty good stretcher of the family budget but I know that I can always do better. I’ve also learned that the best budgets are the ones that are flexible.
Oh, and one more thing. Since I do talk about financial topics from time to time, I have to add the following disclaimer: Neither my husband or I are financial planners or advisers and we do not represent ourselves as such. This blog is strictly for entertainment purposes and is a look at our own personal viewpoints on money and finances. If you need help with your finances, then by all means contact a licensed financial professional.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you around the blog!
