It is Party Time Common Cents Style

March 20, 2009

694798186_smallWelcome to my common sense corner of the world! I have some hot chocolate ready! Would you like a cup?

I also have herbal teas handy if that is more you style.

Enjoy your visit to my blog! I am your hostess, Hollie. You might remember me from my old blog Cheaper then Cheap from last year.

Who am I? I am a solo parent who uses common sense to save cents, be frugal, live simply, have faith, and raise a special needs tween daughter. How is that for a mouth full. I also work full time as an IT tech. I do have one other active blog called My Journey through the Bible which is more about the spiritual journey that I am on.

I live in beautiful Nova Scotia currently. I live in a small rural town called New Glasgow.


This is a picture I took of the ocean not far from where I live. Nova Scotia is a great place to visit.

Now more about my blog. On Mondays I usually participate in Menu Mondays hosted by my friend Laura. On Wednesdays I also participate often on What Works for Me Wednesdays. On Fridays I often have a Friday freebie: usually a great freebie you can find online. On Sundays as of this week I will be hosting my Weekend Round Up of the best of what I have read online that week. Occasionally I also participate in the Festival of Frugality. I also write other posts about common sense stuff. Sometimes it simply might be about my life as a solo parent with a tween. Feel free to check out my archives!

Now at the beginning of March I began hosting a giveaway for my new blog! This is my first time owning my own domain. So I wanted to celebrate and give a good if any of you like board games you want to check out my Bananagrams post!

Now I am off to meet some new bloggers, and Yes I love prizes my favorites on the list so far are Int 1,36,17 and USC 17,44,and 15 but would love anything that ships to Canada. So join me ath the 5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party

    I’ll have a cup of hot chocolate please..I still haven’t acquired the taste for tea, although I really WANT to! I’ve been to Nova Scotia a few years back for a wedding in Halifax. We did travel to the interior and finally over to take the CAT to BarHarbor. The ocean drive is lovely! Nic3e to meet you.
