I am Jason Bazinet, a happily married husband to my wife Keri and a father to my amazing 10 month old (as of this post anyway, I assume he will continue to age) son Reid. I work full time and enjoy the fact that when I go home I get to spend time with my family.

I try to keep up with finding good deals and couponing despite the fact that I have to tell my wife I often visit moneysavingmom.com, a very useful but not so masculine sounding site. I also try to find good healthy but convenient meals to cook, which can get difficult when we are all so busy, and am currently on a healthy kick, so I tend to go to skinnytaste.com a lot for ideas these days.

I hope to merge those two ideas together, couponing and cooking, so you can plan recipes around what’s on sale and what you have coupons for. It makes sense to me because it all encompasses being budget conscious and organized about what you’re buying and making.

I also hope that building this blog will help me get better at budgeting, organization, couponing and finding deals, and I hope it helps you too.

As I develop the site I’ll tell you some ways that I have saved, how I’ve cut the cable cord and what I think of it (and what my wife thinks of it too), how we’ve scaled back to a one car household, and all the other ways we’ve organized our lives without feeling like we’ve deprived ourselves of anything.

I hope you follow along and feel free to comment on posts or email me with any questions or things you’d like to see on the blog.
