I Joined the 2011 Ultimate Blog Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011
Welcome to the 5th annual Ultimate Blog Party! I hope you all are enjoying the party! Since all the parties I attend lately involve my little munchkins, here is a picture of them enjoying cake at our latest bash

About Me:

I’m Dana, the writer behind The Coupon Challenge.  I enjoy blogging about ways to save money through coupon use, store matchups (matching sale ads with coupons), freebies, giving frugal advice, cooking and much more.  When I’m not blogging, you can find me shopping for a good deal, playing with the kids (preferably outside if the weather is nice) or spending time with my husband and friends. 

This is a picture of my kids enjoying the castle cake we made my daughter in March for her 4th birthday. 

~I also sponsored a $25 Amazon Gift Card for the event, so make sure to check out the Ultimate Blog Party site for that prize!

While you’re visiting, be sure to check out my current giveaways where you will see TONS of giveaways from The Coupon Challenge and my blogging buddies in an eco-friendly event going on the ENTIRE month of April! Get all the details HERE!

  8. Hi came by from the Blog party. OK I soooo want the cake.. and help with couponing. I am just getting started in it and having a rough go. I think what hurts me in our area is no place offers double coupons or the like. Which stinks… so I will be following and looking for more ways to squeeze our budget even tighter..

  9. Found you from UBP! Loving your site! I love to coupon! Can’t wait to read your tips!
