The Start

Blog world watch out! Jennifer Carrick is starting a blog. This is titled as such because I love a good deal. I also love to shop and then talk about the super cheap deals I get. This is a good way for me express my creativity with coupons. The stores I shop: CVS, Rite Aid, Krogers, and Meijer. I will also post deals and freebies that I find for the Central Ohio Area.

Happy Shopping!
