Meet a Friend - Tiffany!

Today, you get to meet a blogger that I instantly adored as soon as I "met" her! I mean, how could I not? We share the same name! =) Meet Tiffany of The Coffeehouse!

Hi there. I’m Tiffany, husband is Dan and lab is Sherman. I blog over at The Coffeehouse, a blog that has absolutely nothing to do with coffee, although my best friend right now is {sadly} my brewbot. When Tiffany first asked me to come over and say hello to you guys (and after we both got over the weirdness that comes with having the same first name), I started to panic.

You see, I adore Tiffany and her lovely blog. But Tiffany blogs about style. Tiffany blogs about fashion. Tiffany posts pictures of herself in pretty little numbers.
I blog about my dog and bleep out his private parts.

Crap, I thought … we have nothing in common.
Her people are going to hate me.
Hmmm. And then it hit me.

We’re both cheap! (well, I never …)
What I mean is we’re both frugal. We’re both thrifty. The Thrifty Tiffany’s. Tiff, we should start a blog and call it The Thrifty Tiffs!

Ok, back on track.
So, I’m frugal. But how frugal am I really?
Well, I've been known to get pretty dang excited about condiment bars.

Free pickles. Free tomatoes. Free relish. Oh my!

I'm not embarrased to say that I buy the cheapest thing from the concession stand and then load up on free tomatoes and relish.

I have also been known to politely steal (yes, there is such a thing) doggy poop bags from our local parks.

This is something that I have tried to cut down on since husband found my poop bag stash. This was quite embarrassing and now I only take one every other day instead of every day.

Baby steps people.

And this brings us to our wedding.

Not exactly sure how poop bags brought us to our wedding, but they did.
Husband and I got married in Mexico. Yes, it was absolutely beautiful. But, it was also absolutely affordable.

Mexico is cheap. And so was my wedding dress.

Not to mention husband bought his suit from makeyourownjeans.com. I'm not kidding. His suit was shipped to us from India. I was in frugal heaven.

I could tell you about 297 more frugal stories, like that one time in grad school when I bought so many hotpockets with coupons that the grocery store had to actually pay me. That's right, I was smarter than those dang coupons and somehow I ended up earning money while getting hotpockets for free.

But, that's another story for another day.

Until then, I sure hope to see you over in our neck of the woods.
Keep saving those pennies.
Or, throw them on the ground and I will pick them up.

Tiff

Ha!! Do you see why I love her? She makes me laugh every time I drop by her blog! So head on over and see what kind of funny stuff she's got for us today. =)

Laughing hysterically over the doggy poop bags. I walk two four-legged kidz every day in common areas that require bagging. My mom taught me to tie knots so I could get more poop in 'em.

You're welcome :)
