*Saving you some money in the Rock River Valley*


Welcome to our blog! While a lot of our deals may be specific to the Rockford area, you'll find many deals that are also good nationwide! We hope that our blog will be fun, informative, and that it will help you SAVE SOME MONEY!

Happy New Blog!


Happy New Year! I'm so thankful that God created time - it makes for new days, new weeks, new months . . . and the "favorite" around this time: a new year! There are many mornings when I am acutely aware of the gift of a new day . . . and then there is just something about a new year that is refreshing and exciting (and reminds us how quickly life passes by).

The year 2011 is a year of changes for the Pinch-a-Penny Nook blog. As you may have noticed, 2010 was a slow year for great deals, and it definitely showed in our posting on this blog! Different times call for different measures, so we have decided to revamp Pinch-a-Penny Nook. We will continue to post good deals as they come up (and we’re hoping they come back in great numbers) but plan on also making this a blog with helpful household and saving tips.

Here is what you can look forward to in the weeks and months to come:

Monday Meals - easy and frugal meals to make for your family

Tuesday Tips - helpful articles on being frugal

Wacky Wednesday - things to make you laugh

Toddler Thursday - educational and helpful ideas to teach and keep your toddler busy

Freelance Friday - miscellaneous stuff or "ask the reader" posts

We also plan on having guest posts on topics such as "Decorating on a Budget" or "Fashion Finds." We hope that these changes to the blog will prove to be helpful to you! We also welcome your input and tips - please feel free to email us. You may even find your tip as a guest post!

Hope you are having a great start to your New Year! Look for our "Monday Meals" post this coming Monday!
