How we began?
This site originally started out as way to more efficiently communicate baby bargains and deals with friends and family and it wound-up blossoming into a full fledged baby, toddler, preschooler, big kid and family bargain and living site.
We started way back in February 2008 and since then, Penny Pinching Parent has seen a consistent daily growth of new readers and is fast becoming one of your top online resources for bargains and reviews for your little ones.
You can me Penny Pinching Parent, PPP or Penny… my friends and family call me Sonya and my kiddo calls me Mommy! I am an average mom just like you. Probably a lot like you, I am striving to be a “super mom” and somehow or another find time to do it all… all while “pinching pennies” and stretching our personal family budget.
I am a stay-at-home, work-at-home, (at one point) homeschooling mom. My hubby and I met in college and are getting to the point where we have pretty much known each other half our lives. I am thankful that I have a husband who gets me and I think we are both really appreciate each others ‘penny pinching’ attitude towards pretty much every aspect of our life… makes life easier when we are on both on the same page.
Our little one is currently a fourth grader who is already beginning to understand the meanings of both saving money and earning money. I am afraid she likes to save a little too much and hoards her own money and would much prefer to spend mom and dad!
What Will You Find On This Site?
We strive to bring you material which will save you both time and money. You will find everything from the latest deals and coupons at your favorite kid-friendly stores to product reviews and kid-friendly printables. We even feature maternity deals, family-friendly events and much, much more! Of course since I am a mom you stumble across ‘mommy moments’ scattered in here and there too.
What Qualifies Me To Be A “Bargain Expert”?
Before leaving the workforce, my career was primarily in non-profit development and fundraising. While working, I had to learn very quickly how to plan large events, run a district office and accomplish a variety of tasks with very limited (sometimes no) funds.
The mentality that I adapted from my non-profit career and the skills I picked-up while stretching those non-profit budgets has made me quite the “expert” at spotting or knowing how to find a good deal. Plus, being a seasoned baby & kid bargain hunter means I knows all the right spots to look for you a great deal.
I have been and still do use all my “bargain hunting” skills on a daily basis as I plan for and makes purchases for my own family and I am very proud to provide you with Penny Pinching Parent as a tool to help your family save time and money.
