I’m the Mother of a Great 17 Year Old!! Praise God!

Today is my oldest daughters 17th birthday so we celebrated with a trip to the mall. It was fun to watch her work her frugal magic. She was able to get so many things with the birthday money we gave her. She is a chip off the old block as she was sure to print off her FREE Starbucks and Marble Slab Creamery birthday coupons before leaving.

I was able to nab a few things too with very little money spent out of pocket. Here’s how I did.
