About Me

My name is Jaime. I am a stay at home mom to 2 little boys and a wife to one lucky man. I have a coupon for that! is a blog about saving money, time, and sanity. I also do product reviews and giveaways so that you don't waste your hard earned and saved money on something that won't work for your family. My job is save money and make my husbands pay check go further.


Another thing near and dear to my heart is something that has affected my entire family. In December 2009, my youngest son (9 months at the time) was diagnosed with a birth defect.  It is called Craniosynostosis. It is the premature fusing of the skull's sutures. His doctor had never heard of it before. It occurs in about 1 in 2000 births. If it was left untreated it could have led to restricted brain and skull growth causing a lot of problems for him. He under went a 5 hour surgery at 10 months old to correct it. 3 weeks later he started pulling himself up finally and couch cruising! It was very exciting for us! We are working to raise awareness. Many doctors and families have never heard of it and it often goes unnoticed and untreated. If you have any other questions feel free to email me. To find out more about our journey you can read about it here. Here is a video I made of his journey. Pictures may be graphic to some.



Thanks for joining me on this journey. I look forward to getting to know you better!
