About Me.

I am Jenn, and I live in beautiful West Virginia.  I decided on the blog name, "Books, Bargains, Blessings" because I thought it was the best way to sum up my life in three words.  (Plus I inherited my mother's love for alliteration!)

I am a prolific reader, and I started learning to be frugal and budgeting at a young age.  I remember hearing my parents tell me how expensive college was, and I asked them if I could open a savings account and put money in it so I could help afford college.  I was five years old.  All birthday and Christmas monies always were tucked away in the bank.  I still have that savings account today, although I did use my childhood savings for my education!

I was into extreme couponing before it was cool.  In the early 1990s I was heavily involved in the coupon hobby.  Finances were such that if I wasn't, we just wouldn't have eaten.  So I know what it is like to have to make do with little.  That's one reason I talk so much about finances, budgeting, and how to find good deals on my blog.  I know there are others out there who, like I once was, are in debt and having to stretch every dollar until George Washington screams.  I have worked at home my entire adult life.  I often share advice on how to make money online.   I have received several awards from eBay over the years for being an outstanding seller.

The "Blessings" part of my blog encompasses family (my husband and I are hoping to adopt even though we were only married in 2015).  Also, my faith is very important to me.

I invite you to follow my blog on social media and subscribe to my newsletter.   (Don't worry, I don't send e-mails too often, maybe once a week, and of course will share good deals on days like Black Friday.)

If you have any questions, I'd love to answer them.  I also love hearing about things you would like me to write about on Books, Bargains, Blessings.
