We interrupt these regularly scheduled bargains for a special announcement!

A kind friend of mine who writes an awesome blog about motherhood and raising two kids (two boys at that) had a special surprise for me yesterday. After only blogging a short time, she honored me with my first blogging award! Crazy right? I mean, I told you in my very first post I don't like to write (and in keeping in line with that, this post will likely be short!)...but couponing runs in my blood so its easy to share things when I'm just "deal talking"!

So a THANK YOU to Tamara at The (Un)Experienced Mom for my first Honest Scrap Award! If you like to follow humorous blogs about true tales of motherhood you should check her out. I know I totally identify with some of her days and honestly for me -- coupons are my choice of distraction from the day in and day out frustrations of motherhood!

Here are the rules associated with this award:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and list their blog and link to it.
2. Share 10 "honest things" about yourself.
3. Present this award to 7 others whose blog you find inspiring or those who have encouraged you.
4. Tell those 7 people they've been awarded the HONEST SCRAP and inform them of the guidelines in receiving the award.

So here we go 10 "honest (deal-related) things" about me...I'll try to keep this short and sweet!

1. I know you are all here for deals not to really know anything about me, so know that I know that is the case (at least I'm being honest right?)
2. I have been "super" couponing for a bit over 3 years and it has saved my family quite a bit of money.
3. Couponing is totally worth the time investment. When you see how much you can get for free or pennies you'll be hooked just like I am!
4. I need a bigger storage room. My stockpile is plentiful and my husband doesn't like when I buy more even though we don't have the room to store it.
5. I love my stockpile. I beam with pride when I look at it.
6. My kids love coupons too. They are excellent blinkie pullers, stranded catalina finders and know if its not on sale mommy's not going to buy it.
7. I have a hard time passing up some deals, but sometimes you just have to do it.
8. One of my favorite ways to de-stress is to peruse the perimeter at Target (where all the clearance can be found).
9. I love sharing deals with my friends and family and love hearing about deals they score (that means I'd love it if you commented)!!
10. I always have my coupon file with me. ALWAYS.

So who do I award this award to in the "pass it on" kind of fashion that this award takes form? The same blogs that are in the right column of my blog - those that inspire me to save more money...and help me save more money by posting deals!
