About

Welcome to Saving The Family Money.  My name is Karen and I’m a work at home mom to an 13-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl.  Running SavingTheFamilyMoney.com is my full time job.  I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Family, Child and Consumer Sciences from Florida State University.  Go Noles!  :)  When we had our son we made the decision that I would stay home with him full time.  I’ve performed several jobs from home to supplement our income.  I was an eBay PowerSeller and focused on two methods for income. I sold scrapbook items that I bought wholesale and sold items for clients who had no interest, skills or time to post the items themselves.  My husband and I are working on getting out of debt and staying out of debt. I’m happy to say after 5 years of couponing we are now out of debt!  Our long-term goal is to save enough money to take a year off and travel the world with our kids.  I have started this website to share what I learn and help you save money as well.  My hope is to allow the communication to flow both ways as we help each other find the deals to help our families save money.  I enjoy saving money on everyday things so we can “splurge” on the fun stuff!  I would love for you to leave comments. I link back to websites that serve as good resources, too, so let me know if you have websites of your own! Thanks for visiting :)
