About MochaMom04

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I truly am honored by your presence, especially since there are SO many blogs in cyberspace.

A little about me… My name is Tonya and when I started my blog I was a stay at home wife and mother of four wonderful children, three daughters and a son.  I absolutely love being a mommy and wife to Sam.

Well…I am still a wife and mother, however I am no longer at home!  I went back to work in the summer of 2010.    I am now very busy with work  (I teach high school), my family, my church (my hubby is the Pastor) and somewhere in there I attempt to get some “me time”, which generally means…shopping!

So for anyone browsing my page, you will notice the DRASTIC change in my posts.  I went from posting weekly…to every now and then!  The focus of my blog was saving money and how to get things free…how to cut your grocery bill…The name of my blog was “A Sip of Savings with MochaMom04.”   This used to be a part of the About MochaMom04 blurb “I have always been frugal and shopped a sale, but after giving birth to three children in two years and going from two incomes to one…I have become a bargain obsessed woman on a mission to save money!  My husband says that I have an addiction:-)  I attempt to save money everywhere that I go!  I am here to share my secrets and successes of saving with you!  If I come across it, I will share it.”

I am still crazy about sales and shopping…but when I went back to work, my extra time to write and research savings diminished.  My focus has changed somewhat now.  I still want to share my savings and tips on how to be a better “steward” of your finances, but I want to also just write about things that are on my mind…things I go through…and just random STUFF!  I will not be writing everyday, but hopefully I will post something weekly.  I truly miss writing and interacting with the world!

    Great info! For us working moms, it helps to have the info on savings quick and easily accessible. I need lots of info on coupon shopping. What’s the secret?

      Thanks for visiting A Sip of Savings with MochaMom04. Check out my posts from June 22nd and 25th for lots of info on coupons. I say the secret is to just do it! Don’t shop without them. Plan ahead and try to use coupons for 90% of your purchases…100% if you are not purchasing produce and meats. Get the coupons from the newspapers and online for optimal savings! I hope you subscribed and continue to Sip on Savings!

    This is awesome. When it comes to saving money, I’m all for it. And when you say free, go for it. I will not go out of my way for it, but if it’s right at me, I’m there. Thanks for this.

    Hey Tonya

    Bunny sent me your website. I met a lady at Firestone in May and she is a bargain shopper like you. She is a coupon queen and she keeps a cooler in her truck for her meats and other perishable items. When is the workshop scheduled? Please let me know.

      Hello Stephanie! Thanks for checking out my blog. I really appreciate it. Bunny is a great supporter and is always sending great money saving tips my way. I will keep you posted on the workshop:-) I definitely see one happening in the near future. I may have to visit a yard sale this weekend and get a cooler for meats. Never thought about that! I am not sure if you subscribed, but please do so that you can continue to Sip on Savings!
