About this blog

cardiff-signGreetings web visitor. I currently reside in Cardiff by the Sea and also do quite a bit of shopping, both locally and online. This blog talks about my shopping experiences and is also meant to be a way for me to talk about neat products or services I encounter.

We are just coming out of a pretty steep economic recession, and I really want to help anyone who is unemployed or struggling out there. Because of this, I will also be sharing some of my favorite money-saving tips and links to printable coupons, online coupons, and other special deals you can get to save a bit of money.

If you have suggestions for the site or a topic you would like me to write about, feel free to leave a request in the comments section or shoot me an email. Thank you again for taking the time to visit this blog. I hope you enjoy it!
