Have you ever gone to the store and stood behind someone that was using coupons and it seemed like a painful ordeal? I have. I thought there is no way that I would go to all that work for pennies, nickles or even a dollar…..and then, I saved $5 on baby formula AND used a formula check to save ANOTHER $11 on it. WOW $16 and I didn't even try!
So, I looked a little further and found out that I could use a store coupon, a manufacturer coupon AND that formula check and saved $21 on a $22 container of formula! I just bought a HUGE CAN for $1!! NOW THAT is worth a fill at the gas station! I just fed my baby AND filled my car for the same amount of money that I HAD to spend, so, YES it was worth it……and with the help of blogs, it is quite simple to step into huge savings!
I happen to be the sister in law to the Bargain Believing, Juli at www.bargainbeliever.com (who made me a believer)and, of course, that makes me the sister to her computer savvy husband, who generously helped me set up Chasing Bargains after I told them I was hooked on sharing savings.
So welcome to Chasing Bargains, where I am Chasing Bargains for us. While Bargain Believer is geared towards AZ, but extremely useful nationwide, I wanted a blog geared towards my home in Rapid City, SD and Mid Westerners, but useful by all.
God always provides and has blessed me to be a stay at home/ranch Mom with two babies, one born in 2010 and one in 2011, I also tend to 5 Mini Aussies, severa Arabian Horses and California Variegated Mutant Sheep, at our Farm… Chase N It Farm. My husband is a hard working National Guardsman, that gives selflessly to our country, although I will tell you, military lifestyles is something to salute, for all the absentees, the sacrifice, I have a new respect for military families. I have found that we do have access to a lot of bargains, as a result of the military, and I thank those companies for respecting our service and sacrifices. On the other spectrum, we have a lot of mouths to feed and a very limited budget to make monthly ends meet. With the use of coupons, and bargains, I have found that I still can get everyone fed, clothed AND put a couple bucks in the college jars.

Here's to……………..Chasing Bargains (and finding them!)
I have found amazing deals, but the greatest bargain that I have received is the free gift of salvation through Jesus. I didn’t spend a dime and gained eternity in heaven. Now that’s a deal! (paraphrase of words written by Juli at Bargain Believer, AMEN SISTA!)
