Sharing is caring!

It’s hard to believe but it’s been 3 years since I started Thrifty NW Mom as a way to share my newfound love of couponing & all the deals I’d find with my family and friends. I could have never imagined that this site & the community we have here could grow as much as it has and that is all thanks to you, the amazing readers here at Thrifty NW Mom.  Thank you for your support & encouragement along the way & for sharing Thrifty NW Mom with all your friends and family, so they too could join us in our quest to cut our expenses and save money for our families.

Not only is it our 3 year birthday this month, but we also have reached 25,000 Facebook Fans over at the Thrifty NW Mom Facebook Fan Page! I love the community we have over there with great interaction & readers sharing their best money-saving tips & deals, asking & answering questions about couponing, sharing fun photos of their deal finds & much more! If you’re not a Thrifty NW Mom Facebook Fan yet, why not come on over & join us! I frequently share links to some of my favorite posts or ask the readers random questions about saving money over there, too, so you won’t want to miss out! :)

In celebration of these two big milestones, we will be having a fun giveaway for a brand-new Kindle Fire for 1 lucky Thrifty NW Mom reader to win! The Kindle Fire was the hot new tablet that came out just this fall from Amazon & so far I’ve been hearing rave reviews! This would be a fun item to win for yourself or save for a gift for someone special!

Here’s all that a Kindle Fire includes:

  • 19 million movies, TV shows, songs, magazines, and books
  • Thousands of popular apps and games, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora, and more
  • Ultra-fast web browsing – Amazon Silk
  • Free cloud storage for all your Amazon content
  • Vibrant color touchscreen with extra-wide viewing angle – same as an iPad
  • Fast, powerful dual-core processor
  • Favorite children’s books, graphic novels, and magazines in rich color
