Ann-Marie’s saving skills started with some advice her mother wrote down at her bridal shower: Always keep a little money hidden in a teapot. Her mom used to take her coupon savings from every grocery trip – even down to the cents – and stow it high in a cabinet in a teapot. Then when she wanted a little “fun money” to blow, it was right there waiting for her.
Now Ann-Marie may not use a teapot, but she still has a little “fun money” tucked away, to blow on a nice dinner with a friend, a cute new pair of shoes, or whatever floats her boat.
Ann-Marie earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Purdue University, and her M.B.A. from Butler University. She worked in marketing and advertising with two major radio companies and a national commercial real estate developer, then gave up the corporate life to stay at home when her first child was born.
Fast forward to now, and you’ll find Ann-Marie blogging about the latest coupons, online deals, freebies and more at Chaos Is Bliss. She has 3 sweet & sassy kiddos and a most awesome accountant for a husband. You can follow her @ChaosIsBliss10 or at Chaos Is Bliss on Facebook.
