Frugal Five Meet Jacky

Jacky is a new stay at home mom from Vermont who is blogging about her adventures of visting all 251 towns in Vermont at Vermont 251 She and her family are part of a club that's goal is to visit all towns in her state.

What is your finanical life?

I am married with 2 kids. My son was born 2 months ago and we have decided that I will be a stay at home mom for a while to be with him, so we really only have 1 income coming in now. We own 2 cars and a house in Vermont. We have stayed away from establishing any credit card debt.

What is your budget buster?

Right now it's learning to live with only one income after we have been accostumed to 2. (check out The transition to be a one income family-a 6 month plan)

What is your favorite money saving tip?

Clip all the coupons you can and use them when the item is on sale. It also doesn't hurt if your grocery store will double or triple coupons!

If you had an extra $1000 what would you do with it?

Put it into our savings account to use for a rainy day (or when money is tight).

What is your best resource for frugal living?
I love the book called The Complete Idiot's Guide to Personal Finance in Your 20s And 30s

Thanks Jacky for sharing all of your great tips! Let us know if you would like to be profiled in the Frugal Five
