You can get 3 free cards as well when you sign up here.

Hi, I'm Siby of SavingMyCent.  I'm an Engineer by profession but right now i'm a stay-at-home mom to two sons, ages 5 and 2 1/2 years old.  I started working at 12 years of age and grew a business of my own by the time I was 13 years old.  I learned to be resourceful and frugal with my money at an early age.  I learned to manage and support myself despite living at home with my parents.  I put myself through undergraduate degree except the first term of first year :)   I worked 3 and sometimes 4 jobs while doing my degree to pay for my tuition and my personal expenses.  I learned to not only stay within my budget but most times below my budget through some strategic planning.

Since I am a stay at home mom now, I have to stretch every dollar of our one income.  Frugal living and money saving efforts will keep the dollar you have in your pocket.  Health and wellness of your family do not need to be sacrificed to save a dollar.  I will show you in my blog how to strategically use coupons and deals to save big and also to score free stuff (who doesn't love getting free stuff  :) ).  It's in my blood to save !  

Feel free to contact me at with your suggestions or comments.  I would love to hear how you save money in your family.  Happy saving !!
