A Note from Jennie

Welcome to Bargain Blessings! I’m so excited that you’re here!

When a friend and I stumbled upon the world of frugal living and couponing in March of 2009 it came naturally and we jumped in with both feet! Within just a few months I had cut my grocery budget by more than $400 monthly and by the end of the year I had saved thousands of dollars. Through this crazy, exciting and always fun journey I’ve learned that it is very possible to be frugal and live abundantly without being cheap. Frugality is not only about saving money, but also takes into account value.

Here on Bargain Blessings you’ll find the perfect cocktail of of good deals, savings opportunities and frugal living ideas to get your budget on the right track!

About Bargain Blessings

A Thanksgiving outreach at my church in November of 2009 confirmed what Jennie had been contemplating for many months. It was time to share the blessings of her new-found lifestyle with others who could benefit from the tremendous savings. After receiving that confirmation it was full steam ahead and Bargain Blessings was launched within a few days. To Jennie’s surprise, what she had thought would be a quiet little website used by friends and family, quickly started to grow and grow and grow! Jennie is now blessed and delighted every day to have a wonderful community of readers who have embarked upon the frugal journey with her.

Our hope for you is that this website will be a blessing to you and your family. We hope that the bargains you find here will not only impact your finances, but also bring just a little joy and excitement along with. Whether you are an experienced couponer or someone who just likes to get in on a good deal every once and a while, welcome!
