I’m Sheryl, the person behind The CentsAble Shoppin.
Thanks for visiting my site – if you found your way to this page, I’m humbled that you stayed long enough to read more about my family and I. With the sheer number of frugal blog sites available on the internet, it truly means a lot to me that you have landed here on mine.
If you decide to stay with us, here is a little more about me, and what you will find on my site.
I’m a local blog, not national. I never wanted to be a national blog; having read blog when I first started couponing, I appreciated local blogs much more – I’m in the Phoenix area, so I will post about stores in my area. Though if you are outside of this area, I do have a few resources for stores outside of this area as well.
I love my family, and I love saving money. We are a one income family. I work extremely hard to keep us on a budget, and keep my family well fed. I am firm supporter of using local farms, and supporting small business…. I like to be able to share my love of saving with others. That savings can mean significant things to those who are struggling paycheck to paycheck.
I’m a mom of 4, wife to 1, and as much as I love deals and coupons, my kids and family come first. Deals are great, but I do believe you can get carried away. Kids are truly a blessing… they are only young for a short time – although I’d love to post every deal out there, I can’t and I don’t. I will post those that appeal to me and my family.
You are an important part of my site – we have a great Facebook page, and I try to reply to every email that comes my way. But….. I am one person, and sometimes that can get hard. My greatest joy comes from reading positive emails that come my way – they are few and far between, but they are appreciated.
Some other random facts:
I started couponing in 2007; I started my blog in 2009. I previously worked in Army recruiting……. I love what I did, and I truly miss that job every single day.
I have been married for 13 years, and have 4 kids – Wendy is 7, Rylan is 4, Easton is 2, and Eliora is just under 6 months.
I am originally from a rural farm town in Minnesota. I have a love/hate relationship with cold weather and snow.
I am prior service Military and served in the Active duty capacity in Fort Huachuca, AZ and Fort Gordon, GA. I met my husband in the military. He still serves, and am a firm believer that everyone should serve at least one enlistment. It gave me a great start and we have been fortunate to have the opportunity to support David, who still serves.
I do not like to shop; in fact I have to be forced to purchase clothing. I’m not sure why, but I do not like spending money on myself.
