A Little Blog Break!

cccm blog break

I can’t believe my boys are already about to head back to school. We start on August 25th. Eek!!!  This summer has flown by and I feel like I’ve been on my computer most of it, digging up deals.  So, I’m going to take a little blog break this next week and try to squeeze in on a lot of quality time with my brood of hoodlums.

As I’ve mentioned before, I love this website and the opportunity it gives me to share my passion for saving money, but I never want to miss the MOST important things right in front of me – three incredible boys who are growing up way too fast!

Yes, it was only a few years ago when my boys were all sweet and cuddly and would happily pose for a picture…
