I thought I would share a little about us so you know who is writing Tammilee Tips.
We have a huge love of travel and try to get out of town as often as possible. The only way we are able to do this is by living frugally. We have been blessed to visit many countries together and plan on continuing our tour of the world. We started this blog to help friends, family and anyone else we can with travel, recipes and frugal living.
Our path to using frugal living was unplanned and truly a blessing. The week we were married in September of 2008, we found out that my job was going to be moved outside of Spokane. We had to take a hard look at what our goals were as a couple and were we wanted to be. John works as a Park Ranger for the State of Washington and absolutely loves his job. We chose to stay in Spokane and not move for my job. This was a huge decision since I was the larger income coming in. We knew that if we were going to keep living the life we loved we had to make some changes and choices. I started looking around the Internet to see what others were doing to save money. I started reading coupon sites and was amazed at the amount of money they were saving. Prior to this point I am not sure that I had ever used a coupon at the grocery store. I had used them at Macy’s for discounts on shoes and clothes but not for food. It was a revelation that you could save so much money with coupons.
I started with one paper and a sale at the grocery store and was amazed that I had saved so much money. I was quickly hooked on using coupons and saving money with them. I started stalking the websites and sales ads to see what I could save on. Over time I was talking about saving money and using coupons so much that people started asking how to do it. That is how Tammilee Tips was started. I wanted to find a way to share my love of coupons with everyone I knew.
Over the past four years the site has grown and changed continually. We have transitioned from a coupon site to a lifestyle blog. We now share recipes, travel and living life to the fullest. We want the site to be a place where you can learn how to cook a killer meal and dream of visiting a tropical locale.
We have been featured in National and Local press including TLC Extreme Couponing (don’t worry we were not that extreme), Spokane KXLY News, Spokesman-Review Newspaper, Spokane Inlander, Spokane Prime Magazine and other great publications.
