Big Blog Party ...

There is a BIG, HUGE, GINORMOUS (I love that made-up word) blog party going on at 5 Minutes for Mom. Head on over there to list your blog (read details on how to participate) and then click away to meet new blogs.

To introduce myself to all the other party goers, I'll mention what Pennies In My Pocket is all about ....

Hi, I'm Melody...queen of the pennies. There's no crown, but if there were I'd find a good deal on it! hahaha I'm a mom of a beautiful almost 10 month old baby girl. I own a wedding business and decided to take some time off when the baby was born. I like to keep 'busy'...whatever that means. Basically, I wanted something to do other than laundry, diapers, feedings, etc. So, I started this blog to list deals, discounts and other goodies. I like nice things, but I don't like to pay full price. Who does?

Since I've started this fun little blog, I've been contacted to give away great products by business owners. OK, how FUN is that? I absolutely love hosting giveaways! If you have a great site and would like to give something away, email me!

That's it in a nutshell. Bargains, deals, giveaways and random thoughts from me. Feel free to hang out for a while. If you'd like to link back to my blog, there is a nifty little button on the right sidebar that you can add to your blog.

Now, go to 5 Minutes for Mom before March 14th and get your blog party on ...


Ultimate Blog Party 2008


Also, check out how to win some great prizes! My top three choices for the prize giveaway are...

1. 50 Custom Photo Cards for Any Occasion from Polka Dot Bumblebee -Custom Photo Cards & Personalized Stationery
2. $25 Gift Certificate to Amazon from Judy.
