I had a reader the other day email me asking this question. I figured I’d make a post for everyone to see so you know that there is a real live person behind these posts 🙂
My name is Erin and I’m the one behind “Mommy Octopus”. This picture was taken when my youngest was about a week old. I’m usually the person behind the camera so there aren’t many of me. I live in the Athens, GA area and I absolutely LOVE it here! Great people, great places, great food! It’s a wonderful place to be. My husband works for the local law enforcement and we have 4 crazy kids. I’m actually kinda shy in person at first, but once you get to know me, I won’t shut up! I homeschool my children and although it’s challenging at times, it’s also very rewarding.
I enjoy going to Disney World, crocheting, photography, and reading when I have time. I am a member of ICAN of Athens , Redeemer Presbyterian Church, and our local homeschool playgroup.
I’m not what you consider an “Extreme Couponer”. I’m more of a realistic couponer. I get the items my family needs and usually some extra if our budget allows to donate. Since my husband is the only one bringing home the bacon, we have to stick to our budget. It’s hard at times, but we make it work. Mommy Octopus blog was started after I was emailing friends and family deals each week. I decided to just post all the deals in a central place and then it grew from there!
So that’s me! Hope you enjoyed finding out who is behind all these posts 🙂 Now the question is, Who are you?
