Hi Everyone,

I'm new to the group and thought I would introduce myself. My name is Valerie,

and I'm a 30

year old SAHM. In a previous life, I was a Senior Software Engineer for a small


company located in Lehigh Valley, PA where I worked along side my husband, Mark,

for five

years. Mark still works there today. We met when we were undergraduates at


University and have been married for seven years. We have two daughters, Emily

(3) and Clara

(1 month) who are the most adorable little angels to ever walk the planet (not

that we're

biased, of course).

Looking forward to learning more about saving money as well as sharing any tips

and tricks

that I've learned.
