About

My name is Dawn and I’m a stay-at-home, homeschooling mother of 4. We reside in the frozen tundra they call Wisconsin. ;)

I started blogging in April of 2011. Slop Swap was my first site. I started it to share recipes and money saving ideas. Since then it has grown into way more. Now I’m branching out and separating the niches into different sites. You’ll find recipes and food related things on Slop Swap, everything travel related on Blogging is a Trip, and everything in between including deals, coupons, frugal living and more on Mommy Needs Her Coffee.

I LOVE finding freebies, coupons and deals for my family and passing them on to yours!

When I have time, I also like to blog about my family, kids, homeschooling, couponing, etc. I have so many things that I could write about but just don’t have time!

I’ve been married going on 13 years to my wonderful husband Tim who helps me behind the scenes. He also started his own blog Full Frontal Nerdery.

My family comes first, this blog second. Which means while I wish I had time to post every great deal, coupon, blog post idea, etc that is out there, I just don’t. I’ll do the best that I can though to pick and chose from those deals and bring you the best of the best.

That being said, my readers are very important to me. You choosing to follow my blog means a lot to me. I’m not going to be online 24/7 but I will answer all emails you send and questions you post to me via Facebook, blog, or Twitter.

My vision with my blog is to make it a fun place to visit…with great information so that hopefully you’ll return. Maybe even stick around and enter a giveaway.

I would definitely recommend getting signed up for our email subscription so that you never miss a deal! That recaps everything that gets published on the blog during the day and get’s delivered right to your email box.

We are PR and Advertising Friendly. Which means that if you have a company and would like to have your product featured on our blog or advertise on our site, we’d be more than happy to discuss that with you. Please take a look at our PR and Advertising page for more information.

So there’s a little behind the scenes. I’m glad you’re here and I hope you stick around!
