Blog Spotlight | Stockpiling Moms

I am running a feature spotlighting other Review & Giveaway Blogs. If you have one and would like to be featured, please email me at [email protected]


Today I would like to welcome Melissa and Shelley from Stockpiling Moms. I had a chance to learn more about his blog and here’s what he had to say…

Please tell me about yourself. 

Melissa Jennings and Shelley King-Steimer are the authors of Stockpiling Moms. They are best friends who met through the process of International Adoption five years ago as they were waiting on their son’s to come home from Guatemala. Soon after their sons came home they left their careers and became stay at home Moms. After the economy turned they began using coupons to build their stockpile in order to help their family save money and continue staying home. They started their blog to help friends and family save hundreds of dollars a month and that is how Stockpiling Moms blog was born!

Please tell me about your blog. 

We share our guide to frugal living with our readers and we teach them how to strategically use coupons to build their stockpile and live a debt free life. We share deals, freebies, menu planning, frugal recipes, a weekly giveaway, recalls, rebates, Disney deals and more!
