Welcome to Mom's Fun Money.  My vision for this site is that everyone learns something new about making money, saving money and just how much fun you can have doing it!  And then, that you pay it forward. 

Blessings, Katie

Changes Around Here

Posted by Moms Fun Money on Saturday, June 18, 2016, In : General 


Hi everyone!

I made some changes and unfortunately, as of right now, most of my blog posts for the last 6 years have vanished! I am hoping to get them back, but in the mean time, you can take a stroll down memory lane and see some posts I did 6 years ago :)

Websites I just had to share!

Posted by Moms Fun Money on Wednesday, April 7, 2010, In : General 
I spend a lot of time listing great deals and freebies, but I do not always get a chance to post all the great websites I find that really don't fit into a category.  There are so many websites and on-line communities out there just for us Moms!

ModernMom.com - I joined their site about 3 weeks ago and today I received my first e-mail asking if I would like to test a product.  I answered their survey questions and received an e-mail back saying that I had qualified.  I will be getting a produc...

My Trash Picking Update

Posted by Moms Fun Money on Thursday, April 1, 2010, In : General 
This "Daily" wording is getting tricky.  It is more like "monthly".  I am spending so much time posting freebies and daily deals that I do not has as much time to come here and just share. 

But I wanted to follow up on the post about "One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure" and show you a picture of my creation.  I went crazy with the spray paint and made this butterfly pop!  Just to think the poor thing was just sitting by the curb waiting for a new coat of paint and a new home!

Time to Come Clean

Posted by Moms Fun Money on Tuesday, March 9, 2010, In : General 
How many of us buy an item when it is on sale, even if we will not need to use it right away?  We have been told to be smart shoppers and buy when the price is low so we are not stuck needing it when the price is high.  I have discovered, by way of my cat, that I do this mainly with beauty cleaning items.  This morning one of my cats got into the bathroom cabinet and managed to open a bottle (he is amazing :) and spill conditioner.  So, I was forced to remove everything from the cabinet to cl...

One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure

Posted by Katie Adauto on Wednesday, February 3, 2010, In : General 
This is an old saying, but very true.  How many times have you taken something offered to you from a friend who did not want it anymore?  Thrift Stores, Garage Sales, EBay, Craig's List, dumpster diving.  All ways to get items others no longer want or need. 

I watched the Antique's Road Show on Monday and there was a lady who bought a lamp for $25 at a garage sale and had a hunch.  It ended up being a Tiffany lamp and was worth $50,000!  I know we all wish for opportunities like that, but in ...

The New Year

Posted by Katie Adauto on Saturday, January 16, 2010, In : General 
Okay, so I am a little late.  We are still only two weeks into the new year!  I thought if I wrote here my goals for 2010 it might make it more real, and I have all of you to help keep me accountable!  I hope you will share your goals as well.  Just click on the title of this post and type away.

I wish my goals were a little more out of the box, but I, like many of you seem to struggle with the same thing year after year. 

1)   Pay down some debt.  This one is number one because I find that I ...

On Vacation

Posted by Katie Adauto on Wednesday, January 6, 2010, In : General 
It has been awhile since a wrote here.  So much for a "Daily" dose...

We have been enjoying a lovely week in Sedona, AZ.  I have challenged myself and my family to stay on a budget this vacation and so far it is working.  I plan on adding everything up once we return home.  We have been as frugal as possible, but you still have to buy some souvenirs!  Normal life hit us today when my daughter came down with a cold.  So, we are just enjoying our time share condo for the day.  Hopefully she will...

Holiday Time

Posted by Katie Adauto on Sunday, November 29, 2009, In : General 
As I get older I find Christmas less and less enjoyable.  Am I becoming a scrooge in my old age?  I am tired of the meaning of CHRISTmas being all about presents and spending money.  Even Thanksgiving is now being taken over by shopping.  Stores opening up at midnight for Black Friday.   The holidays need to be able spending time with family, strengthing bonds with those we only see a few times a year.  Not about sitting around looking at the ads and planning the best shopping strategy.  It j...

How Cheap (oh I mean Frugal) Are You?

Posted by Katie Adauto on Wednesday, November 11, 2009, In : General 
I have heard many a story about people going a little bit too far to save money.  I am sure I am guilty of a few of them myself.  But when is enough,enough?

Have you reused storage bags?  - I have
Have you reused aluminum foil?  I have
Have you regifted?  I have
Have you added water to something to make it last longer?  I have
Have you changed an ingredient in a recipe so you can save money?  I have
Have you worn socks with holes in them?  I have, but not for long!

The list could go on and on.  I wo...

What is the Best Deal You Have Gotten?

Posted by Katie Adauto on Friday, October 30, 2009, In : General 
I would love to hear from you.  To leave a comment click on the title of this post and a comment box will show up.  That will be the case for each blog entry. 

As for me, if we are talking good buys, it would be using coupons and getting items for free.  Nothing better than that! 

As for freebies in the mail just from the small samples companies offer it would be an entire bag of flour.  Very unexpected.  I also love all the product tests I get from survey companies.  Just today I received 2 ...

Do you coupon?

Posted by Katie Adauto on Tuesday, October 27, 2009, In : General 
I have used coupons for years, but I must say I am not one of the experts.  I have a coupon organizer, but I ran into a lady at the store a few weeks ago that had a binder and each page had 4 compartments.  Wow, now she was organized.  I know many ladies that will make extra trips to other stores to use coupons.  I just have not put that much into it.  I always check the Sunday paper and also print coupons on-line, but I try to use coupons for items I would normally buy anyway.  What is the p...

In the Beginning...

Posted by Katie A. on Monday, October 12, 2009, In : General 
I have had a few people tell me I should start a blog, so what better place than on the website.  I have been asked how and why I search for good deals.  I look back to my childhood and remember that saving money was something that we just did.  It was part of our lives.  The local Salvation Army was one block away and we visited there frequently.  I went through many a used Hot Wheels from there.  My grandmother only bought her clothes at Salvation Army and was always getting stopped by peop...
