Tip of the Day

Most moms know of this site, but lots of folks don't...if you haven't checked out http://www.southernsavers.com/ you need to!  Click on your grocery store, it will tell you the sale items of the week and if there are any coupons out there.  It usually has a link to many of the coupons for you to print on your own.  Very helpful and saves a bunch of time. :)

Just the start...

So I'm not much of a writer...basically, I hate it.  BUT, I've had a few people lately who have suggested this whole blog thing...so while I may not post often or they may not be very long, I figure I'll give it a shot. 

Don't worry- this won't be a diary, and I definitely won't be posting my "feelings" on here. :)  But I do have lots of money-saving tips and between me and my husbaind, we have a bunch of other creative things floating around up in the "attic" so we might as well share and along the way enjoy some tips, projects, & suggestions from you guys as well!

If you haven't visited my website already, you should. :)  It's http://www.erinsattic.com/.

So I started Erin's Attic in January... my husband is in contracting and would always bring home doors, windows, and a bunch of other "stuff" that we have enjoyed reusing or repurposing.  If you know me well, you know I love my "stuff."  I'm kind of a packrat to some degree...I get rid of things, but I love to "collect" things that I MIGHT need in the future.  :)  So, my husband gave me a storage shed that I have now turned into "the workshop" and I use it for all my Erin's Attic supplies...and Christmas decorations...and tubs of other fun stuff.  I've had windows in my house for years as decor, some are plain and some had pictures in them.  I even have some really vintage ones stored away to make some sort of furniture in the future. 
So I have been working extra hard the last couple months to get the business off to a great start...and it is!  I have had lots of great feedback and many sales, so I only pray that it will grow and grow in the near future.

OK, so I'm tired of typing for now...gotta break in slow. :)  But keep on the lookout for some fun ideas, tips, & projects in the near future.  Please feel free to post any fun tips or projects as well!  I'd love to hear them!
