What inspired you to start blogging?

I first started blogging in November 2008. A friend I met online, Edee who runs, was a big inspiration to me. I really wanted to work from home and she held my hand and got me started. She's been so much help along the way. I love having a voice and sharing our family life and thoughts on products.

What are three distinctive features of your blog?

1. I review family friendly products that fit into our lifestyle. My 2 boys are preschoolers and my daughter is a pre-tween so I stick to topics and products that are fitting for their age group or they enjoy. Any product that makes my life easier as a mom also coming in as a priority, too.
2. I also love to share family movie entertainment and places that we visit locally in the Chicagoland area.
3. I really enjoy doing video reviews of products because I think its a great way to give more information and helps others see more of the products from different angles to make a better informed decision on a product purchase.

What are three adjectives that describe your blog?

How do you make shopping for your family's clothes affordable?

Tricia Fandrey

Shopping sales and clearance racks is the best way to save money when you have 4 children. At the end of the season I purchase clothes that will fit my children the next. You can save up to 60-70% on name brand clothing from places like the Gap, Gymboree, etc. I do a lot of shopping online use coupon codes and shop at outlet stores. I never turn down hand me downs and always pass from oldest to youngest.
