Meet Heidi – A New Bargain Shopper Mom Contributor


Hi everyone! I have been running the website now for over two and half years and it has started to be difficult to do it all. That is why I brought on someone to help me out around here.  I am so happy to have her here.  Not only is she a great bargain hunter but also a great crafter and baker. Plus she is super sweet. We actually became friends due to our love of high end kids clothing at bargain prices!

You can see which of us a post is from just by looking at the byline above the post.  She has already written an amazing  Easy and Frugal Artisan Bread Recipe  post.  Be sure to read it and pin it to share with your friends.

I also love that she has boys. I have never been all that great on finding deals on boy toys or clothing so she is going to be a huge asset here. Be sure to check out her gift guides over on the holiday bargain page.  (Coming later today!)

Plus she is crafty crafty crafty! Be on the look out for lots of great craft posts from her too!

Here is a little introduction from her.


Hi, I’m Heidi. I’m an avid crafter, cook and bargain shopper. I worked in high-tech Marketing and in Real Estate for several years and left working full-time to have children. I am now a busy mother of three young children.

I started cooking and entertaining for friends in my twenties. I shared an apartment with girlfriends and we liked to have friends over for appetizers, drinks and desserts. I also started scrapbooking and crafting about the same time. From there, it evolved to crafting and baking for wedding showers, baby showers,
birthday parties and for my children when they were babies. I love trying new recipes and making great-tasting food for my family. I often bake for school events and for the holidays.

As for crafting, I have both a Cricut and a Silhouette machine and I enjoy making invitations and cards, doing papercrafts and scrapbooking. I also dabble in other types of crafts like sewing, making jewelry and cake decorating. I am one of those people that is always saying, “I can make that myself”.

My husband teases me that I am always shopping, but it’s true that I enjoy buying high-end clothing, toys and electronics for my family. In order to afford nice things, I have to find them at bargain prices. I am very picky when it comes to choosing items for my family and I prefer buying quality things that will
last a long time.


I hope you will all give her a great big welcome. I think she is going to be a great addition to the Bargain Shopper Mom website and community!
