That’s right. I said “extreme couponer” and “bachelorette” in the same sentence :) Because any of you who watch either will recognize Chrystie in a second with her trademark tattoos and feistiness. All stuff that made me reach out to her for this interview! (You’re welcome.) But for those who may be out of this “cool” group who’s “in the know” (I freely admit I’m […]

I published my very first blog post. It was an “interview” I did, on… myself.
