I’m Lindsay. I have been friends with Tara for years and am an avid reader of her blog. I have always wanted to get involved, but just wasn’t sure how. When Tara and I met, I was a stay at home mom of an amazing baby girl, Dallas Rose. Before Dallas was born I loved to shop. I mean who doesn’t? Retail shopping was my therapy! Paying full price didn’t matter really. My closet was filled with amazing clothes, shoes and handbags! Not to mention a huge beauty arsenal of top shelf make-up.
After having Dallas, after leaving a career I had have for over fifteen years, life was different. Not in a bad way, but my wants were now not important. She came first. Not only her needs, but her style too! I found myself mentally just becoming more frugal. Picking up a pair of Seven for Mankind jeans at Nordstrom’s and looking at the price tag of $128 made me stop and think. How bad did I need them? For a while I was the definition of the stay-at-home mom. Yoga pants, t-shirts, sneakers…OH!, and let’s not forget the messy hair bun and no makeup.
When Dallas turned two, I had became a single mom. I reached out to Tara, offering to help at her busy salon, until I found a full time position. I was beyond excited when she said yes! I was also looking in my closet like, uh oh! I literally had nothing to wear. Working at the Salon I had to look the part. Hair, clothes, accessories and makeup. I was the first person everyone was going to see.
That’s when I realized there has to be a way to look good, get the styles but pay less. I have made it my mission to find deals on the things I love. I finally approached Tara and said do you think people would be interested in the deals I find? She said “of course.” She wanted her blog to reach everyone.
So here I am! Full time working mom of a three year old (threenager) trying to find the best for less! I plan to regularly post different deals I find. I look forward to you, the readers input, as to what deals your looking for, as well as what deals you use from my posts!
