I’m Lori, the creator behind the A Reinvented Mom website. I’m married to the Hubby and Mom to two teenagers (The Girl & The Boy). We count ourselves lucky to live in the beautiful Colorado mountains.  I love trying new recipes I’ve found on the internet (always tweaking them a bit), searching for the best deals and hanging out with my family.

Like so many others, our family hit a rough patch in 2008 and it continued for several years. During this financially distressed time, I desperately searched for ways to feed my family on a meager budget and to save money.

Luckily for me, couponing was quickly becoming a craze (remember that Extreme Couponing show?). It was just what I needed to help my family and I and jumped all in. It was a relief to reduce our grocery bill by about $800 per month – huge savings! The downside was that a considerable amount of time and effort is required to realize savings that high. 

These days we are in a better spot financially and I would rather spend my time doing something fun with my family. But I’m still a frugal girl at heart and have branched out to look for other ways to save money.  

Which leads me here today. I am amazed at how many savings opportunities are available in other areas if you just look for them. And most of these opportunities require very little effort. I also try to balance the time investment with the savings amount. I may not be getting the absolute best price on every item,  but I am alright with that as my time is valuable, too.

I look forward to sharing my tried and true recipes and money saving tips with you. Hopefully we can all save a little money!
