More About Kari and Shining To Save 
Tell Us a Little About Yourself and Why You Started Blogging.

I'm a frugal mommy of 2 very energetic little boys. I lived in Virginia Beach for the past 4 years while my husband was stationed there with the Navy, and just recently moved back to my home state of Massachusetts. I started blogging to share all of the great deals I scored using coupons and I have recently started reviews & giveaways.

Tell us a little more about your blog.
Shining2Save covers a variety of things, from family life to product reviews & giveaways. I also love to share high value coupons, freebies, family fun events, and hot amazon deals.

How long have you been blogging?
I started this blog in mid 2010.

Any Advice for new Bloggers?
Everyone starts out small, I was there not too long ago, you don't just gain followers overnight, but with time and commitment your blog will grow. Joining groups like Mom Bloggers Club, Pitch It, and Social Moms and being active in those groups will help. You will also gain new friendships, I never thought I would meet so many great people from all around the world.

Any Fun Fact You Would Like To Share?
Maple syrup on bacon is delicious!
