About Erin

   My name is Erin.  I am the wife to a wonderful man, and stay at home mother of three amazing children and I do it all in the desert!!  Our family has been hit by the terrible economy and I have learned to thrive on less than we ever thought possible.  My husband was laid off from the Civil Engineering field in January of 2009 and was out of work for two years.  We took a 70% cut in our income and with God's provision we have survived and thrived.
     Arizona has been one of the hardest hit states, ranked #2 in the nation for families living under the poverty line.  The purpose of this blog is to help families enjoy living in this desert during this hard economic time.  My main focus will be deals in Arizona that families can take advantage of, but I will also talk about many things that deal with our life here!  I look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions!
