About Me

Hi there! I’m Crystal Paine, the blessed wife of Jesse and mom of four precious children (Kathrynne, Kaitlynn, Silas, and Kierstyn) + a foster mom (we currently are fostering a sweet little baby boy we call “Champ” on the internet). I’m first and foremost a child of God. I’m passionate about glorifying Him and making the most of my days on this earth. All I have and all I am is thanks to my Creator and Redeemer.

I’m also a homeschool graduate, sister to six, and daughter of wise parents who modeled being financially-savvy to me.

My Frugal Journey

My mom was the one who first introduced me to couponing, made me my coupon organization box, and gave me a copy of Miserly Moms. Not only that, but she also put me in charge of the grocery shopping, menu-planning, and cooking for our family of nine for a few years while I was still living at home. Talk about great practice for the future!

When my husband and I first married and were living on a beans-and-rice budget in order to stay out of debt while he went through law school, I thrived on coming up with creative ways to pinch pennies. I didn’t always enjoy barely making ends meet, but I certainly loved the thrill of getting the best bang for my buck.

One way we saved thousands of dollars during those lean years was to keep our grocery and household products budget to $35 a week. I had fun taking couponing to a whole new level — I spent at least a few hours each week becoming proficient in “couponese” and playing the “Drug Store Game.”

About MoneySavingMom.com

In 2006, I briefly shared a bit about bargain-shopping on a former blog of mine… and I was quickly inundated with questions on how we managed to live on such a small grocery budget.
