Attitude of Gratitude Award

WOW! I am so humbled to be nominated for this award. Lori at Moms by Heart nominated me and this is my first blogger award :) I have only been blogging a few months and I am so blessed to have had such wonderful people take me under their wings. I have made so many new friends through blogging and I feel like I know them better than they probably know me because I am reading their blogs each day. I hope to continue learning and passing on some great savings!

1. Moms by Heart - I know that Lori is the one who nominated me, but I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and her blog. Lori is one of the ones who has spent time explaining the process of blogging and is she is always willing to offer her advice when I have a question. She's even there at 12:00 at night when I want to chat online :) If you haven't checked out Moms by Heart you need to. Her daily thoughts from the bible are a great reminder of what's important in life.

2. Attention Target Shoppers - Ginger is one of my new blog friends, I encourage you to check out her blog. She always has all the great deals at Target each week, and since we don't have much besides Walmart and Target I always find great deals on her site.

3. Surviving the Stores - Rachel from Surviving the Stores has great deals. I love her "Surviving Walgreens" Section. Her site is so organized and easy to find. She also does a new weekly segment called "Surviving the Grocery Stores" where you can add links to your own match-ups.

4. Deal Seeking Mom - I have to say that Tara at Deal Seeking Mom was the first "Deals" blog I found back when I was first starting out. If it wasn't for her great Walgreens posts we wouldn't have this great NWA blog. :) She always has great informative posts and I learn so much from reading her blog as well as listening to her radio show. Also, I appreciate so much the links back to this site she's added to some of her deals, I know that's how many of our readers have found NWA Deals.

5. From Wags to Riches - I love this blog because it only focuses on Walgreens. She posts updates daily on great finds, and even posts some that you don't often see in weekly match-ups. This is a great source if you are learning to shop at Walgreens.

6. BeCentsAble - This is a great site for weekly grocery store match-ups and other great deals. I am so thankful to Katherine for letting me be a part of the Grocery Gathering each week. You can find links to NWA Deals for both Harps and CV's/Marvin's IGA. Thanks Katherine for letting me share my savings with your readers.

7. Chief Family Officer - Cathy always has great tips on how to save money. I love this blog because she doesn't just focus on deals and freebies, but she has great practical information on getting out of debt and living on less. I am always so encouraged when I visit Cathy's site.

8. I am a Money Magnet - Jamie probably doesn't know who I am, but I love reading about her Walgreens adventures. She has some great finds, and always has a great plan for Walgreens each week. If you have a CVS, or Kroger she also shops at those stores. She is a very entertaining writer and I always enjoy reading about her adventures.

9. It's Hip to Save - This is a new favorite of mine. I just recently found this blog, but I love all the great deals she posts. There are so many each day that I can't even keep up. Thanks for all the great Freebies and Walgreens ideas.

10. Freebates - I love this site! It's one of the only sites I have found that focuses on Rebates and Try Me Free Offers. I have saved so much money using this site, I just want to say Thanks to Lori for all the great deals!
