Fam Pic copy

Hi! My name is Janell and I am a stay at home mom with three kids – 2 boys and a girl. N was born in 2005, B was born in 2008, and S completed our family in 2010.   I homeschool my kids – which is always an adventure.

My husband and I have been married for 17 years. He is a professor of youth ministry at a Seminary. We are from Tampa, Florida.

I love to save people money but I am not a big fan of buying the cheapest product. I like to purchase a good product that will last a long time. 

I am always telling my family and friends about the free stuff I find and I thought this blog would make it easier for them. I also love to spend time in the kitchen. I love to bake and try out new recipes. I love my slow cooker and I have created a series about creating 5 dinners in 1 hour for your crock pot. This is a huge time and money save for our family.  My family doesn’t eat the same meal often because I love to try new recipes.

I read many blogs so you don’t have to! I will tell you about all the great stuff I see out there!

I hope you enjoy this blog and please let me know if there is anything else you would like information about.

Hey Janell!
Your comment was above mine on the Baby GoodBuys site about what babies really need. I recognized your name–don’t know if you remember me. I was a missionary with Mision Mexicana on the southside…and ended up moving outside of Ecatepec where I eventually got married and left the IMB. Living in Texas now…expecting my third baby and loving anything that has to do with savings!
I’ll be browsing your site! 🙂

We are sending you some Manymal products so you can promote it on your blog and social media. We wanted to make sure you are aware of this so we can send the product immediately. Thank you, please let us know! 🙂 It will be a pleasure to work with you.
