Hello, my name is Heather

by Freebies4Mom on November 17, 2007 6:45 am

I wanted to introduce myself to you, especially with so many new readers lately. My name is Heather and I live in Houston with my husband and two sons. Right now my job title is “stay-at-home mom” and “part-time blogger”, but before I had kids I worked as a civil engineer. I started this blog because I wanted to share the freebies I find with other moms. If you go to any of the freebie boards you will find long lists of all kinds of free samples and offers. I try to sift through this information and bring the best of the offers to you in a timely manner. My hope is that my blog will be fun for you to read and help you save money. I am thrilled to have so many readers, because you can help me keep up to date with the quickly changing links and offers. I encourage you to me e-mail me or post a comment about anything on my blog, or about a new offer you find! You may also like to read my inaugural post Moms Deserve Freebies! Enjoy your freebies because you deserve them!

Kena – Thanks for sharing your blog with me! I love it and I’ll be adding a link to it on my site soon! I would of course be thrilled if you would add Freebies 4 Mom to your list of links. Is there a way to get updates by e-mail from your site (FeedBurner or FeedBlitz)? Thanks and happy freebie-hunting!

Thanks so much !!! I really appreciate it, I’m not a mom, but rather a poor graduate student.

Response to Comment #12 – Welcome – I love helping people save money (moms and non-moms). The name of my blog should really be “Freebies 4 THIS Mom” because the Mom is me because it’s a key part of my identity and the main drive for my increased focus on living more frugally. Welcome and enjoy the freebies!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

Heather, I am not a mom at all but in this tough economy my husband and I due all that we can to save money. I haven’t gotten into the sweepstakes sides of things but I sure due enjoy the coupons and the free samples. OH YEAH, and the GREAT tips on how to use duplicate coupons or how to mix coupons with store sales. I am from Minnesota so the stores aren’t always located here but I take everything that I can use. Thanks!

hi, i have been reading and visiting ur site daily since seeing u on t.v. i have never responded bc i am very very busy but i just wanted u to know that i am here ๐Ÿ™‚ my son lives 1 1/2 hours (one way) from me and he is on the wrestling team. i go to college 5 days a week (30 min from home), and my church is the opposite direction of my son and my school, and i sell avon full time. i am very involved with my son’s wrestling team (including out of town stays and driving team members) and i volunteer at my church and attend service twice a week. i am always in my car (lots of gas money) so i love being able to come to ur site and find ways to save money. thanks again, but know that just bc u dont hear from all ur readers doesnt mean that we arent grateful to have met you ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Heather! Your site is awesome. I really don’t know where you find the time. Well, I do–You are just so organized. You truly are a supermom! Anyway, I am just now sitting down and enjoying my Christmas cards, and I thought I would look up your site. I am definitely going to bookmark it.

Thanks for visiting, Sarah! Just remember that Freebies 4 Mom is going on 15 months old, so it’s a work-in-progress. Hopefully always getting better. I’m having fun, and love helping other people find the free stuff. Chat with ya soon!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

Heather – I've been following your blog a month or so now and just read your "about" and discovered that you're a fellow civil-engineer-turned-mom. Glad to know there are others out there!

I have been following your blog for a while now on my reader and twitter for a while now. I decided to drop by and take a look and found you also live in Houston! I am glad to find another Houston blogger. And more surprises you are a civil engineer! Me too! I am currently a SAHM with a lovely 8 week old and I love freebies. Thanks for your wonderful site and deals!
